On May 28th, 2020 OpenAI announced its new monument to general AI: The GPT-3 system. It is an incredible piece of engineering: a deep neural network with 175 billion parameters. And it does play some incredible parlor tricks:

  1. It can translate from English to other languages and back
  2. Given a prompt, can generate some pretty readable short stories
