Everything you need to know about GPT-3

by Vytenis

For the past years, the development and advancement of technology has been rapidly growing. Businesses have experienced many changes with innovative tools entered or left the market. Newly introduced GPT-3 is considered as disruptive technology, with its potential to revolutionise how we interact with computers, with the main goal to enable machines to understand and respond to human language as accurately as possible.  

What is GPT-3 and how it works?  

GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) is a NLP (natural language processing) tool developed by OpenAI. It is accessible through API (Application Programming Interface) and has the ability to handle 175 billion parameters, making GPT-3 the most advanced language model available. It works by using a pre-training model, in which the machine learning system is trained to recognise general features in text datasets and predict the next word in a sequenceOnce this training is complete, the model can be adjusted for specific tasks. GPT-3 uses text predictor to create the most likely output required by the user. This large language model can generate human-like text that is consistent, readable and relevant.  

Capabilities of GPT-3  

GPT-3 is a language generation model which is capable of generating highly realistic text and performing NLP tasks. Here are main capabilities explained more in details. 

Text translation 

GPT-3 can perform text translation. It turns text written in one language into another. This AI model understands specific phrases and expressions therefore is able to generate natural language and keep the same meaning and tone of the original text. 

Text generation 

GPT-3 is able to predict the next word in a sequence and generate text. It does it by learning patterns and relationships between words. When generating text, GPT-3 starts with a prompt and the uses its understanding to generate a human language and a text that is coherent and natural-sounding. Additionally, the model has the potential to perform tasks like creating images and audio based on text prompts. 


GPT-3 creates accurate summaries. It extracts key points from the text and generates summaries that are short and concise, yet captures the main ideas of initial text. 

Question answering 

GPT-3 model was trained to provide useful results. It answers questions based on a given context or knowledge. By specifying additional values or adding more information to the request, the GPT-3 provides more fine-tuned answers. 

Applications of GPT-3 

GPT-3 is able to perform tasks making it useful for various business units. Here are the main ones.  

Customer service  

GPT-3 is used to create chatbots that handle customer inquiries and resolve problems through natural conversation. This helps to reduce the workload for customer success managers and improve response time for customer. In that way, businesses are able to save money and increase efficiency by having more time to perform other tasks. 

Connecting with potential customers 

GPT-3 model can assist in customer communication and outreach. This learning model can be trained to generate personalised emails to potential customers based on specific information such as location, demographics, or needs. This can help salespeople to save time and effort on writing emails while still providing personalised communication. 

Copy writing 

GPT-3 is also useful for content creators. Model is capable of generating ideas for headlines based on specific themes. It helps writers to come up with creative, unique, attention-grabbing ideas and find inspiration. Additionally, the model can be trained to generate new descriptions of a product or other marketing materials based on keywords. Content generated by GPT-3 is new, engaging, and informative, which can save writers time and effort. GPT-3 edits written text for grammar, spelling and style, therefore increases the quality of material and makes the copy error-free. 

Risks and limitations of GTP-3 

GPT-3 is remarkably powerful tool, however, there are some unsupervised risks and limitations that need to addressed and taken into account while using this AI tool. 


Such models like GPT-3 is trained on data from internet, which may contain biases. User should be aware that biased outputs can occur often and it is important to mitigate them, not blindly rely on provided information and double-check it. 

Dependence on data 

Since GPT-3 was trained on large dataset, it directly depends on the quality of data. If the training data is poor, the model will fail to perform specific task or will provide inaccurate results. It may struggle to generate meaningful responses to inquiries that are different from the data it was trained on. Meaning, if a new or unusual input is present, GPT-3 might fail to handle it. 

Not constantly learning 

GPT-3 has been pre-trained and is not constantly learning from past experiences. The model does not have long-term memory and fails to learn from each interaction. Additionally, like all neural networks, GPT-3 lacks the ability to provide explanations or interpretations for why certain inputs result in specific outputs. 

How will GPT-3 reshape the future? 

Artificial Intelligence is changing the way business operates and will continue to do so. GPT-3 will automate certain tasks that can be done without human interaction and creativity. The model has variety of use cases that every business can adopt, from sales people to marketing, yet it doesn’t change the human work completely, especially for now. However, GPT-3 can save money for companies by facilitating repetitive work done by employees. Another potential impact of this model on the job market is the acceleration of automation and digitisation. As GPT-3 and other advanced AI technologies became more widely available and affordable, it is likely that more businesses and organisations will adopt them to improve efficiency and productivity. This could lead to the automation of certain jobs and the creation on new ones that involve working and developing artificial intelligence systems. GPT-3 will lead to inevitable changes in the job market.
