Artificial intelligence can answer questions, simplify ideas, come up with product names, make up horror movies and even be sarcastic (when asked).
In the past few months, there has been a suite of new artificial intelligence products that go far beyond what has been made available to the public before.
Last week, the high-profile suspension of a Google employee after he went public about an AI chat bot that he thought was (almost certainly incorrectly) sentient put a spotlight on just how far AI has come.
One major advancement has been the new AI model Generative Pre-trained Transformer-3 (GPT-3) by research firm OpenAI, released in 2020. Since its initial release, OpenAI has slowly rolled out access to the model for various uses — carefully allowing access to it due to fear of the powerful technology being misused.
