16 OpenAI GPT-3 Demos and Examples to Convince You that AI Threat is Real, or is it ? [Including Twitter Posts]


OpenAI GPT text generator models have always attracted a lot of attention from the AI community. Its earlier versions had garnered praise for its capabilities and also opened debate on the potential risk that it poses for malicious usage. The recent release of the OpenAI GPT-3 has continued on the path of its predecessor by taking the standards even higher with its performance. After OpenAI released a private beta of GPT-3 to limited people, they started sharing the fascinating demos and examples online, especially on Twitter leaving everyone astounded and shocked by the kind of results that they have obtained.

What is OpenAI GPT-3

The latest release of OpenAI’s GPT3 (Generative Pretrained Transformer) is the third-generation NLP model. This language algorithm leverages the power of machine learning for carrying out various NLP tasks like text translation, answering questions, and is also capable of writing text by using its impressive predictive capabilities.

The reason behind GPT-3’s unprecedented level of accuracy and performance is credited to the training that has taken place for building it. According to the makers, GPT-3 has been trained with over 175 billion learning parameters, thus enhancing its performance in each and every one of its operations. 

This benchmark of using such a huge number of learning parameters was set by its GPT-2 predecessor when it was trained with 1.5 billion parameters. Soon GPT-2 was surpassed by NVIDIA Megatron that comprised 8 billion parameters and after some time Microsoft’s Turing NLG boasted off its existence with 17 billion parameters. But leaving all the previous counterparts with such a whopping 10x margin, OpenAI GPT-3 is the current leader. All this praiseworthy performance has definitely come at some cost, to be precise, it costs almost $12 million USD to train the third installment of the OpenAI’s text generating model.

With all the hype around GPT-3 results being circulated online, people have been apprehensive about these advanced language models. The previous version  GPT-2 was already considered so advanced with its results that the AI community was worried about its potential threats. This same fear is attached to GPT-3 with increased powers.

How OpenAI GPT-3 Works?

Behind the curtains, GPT-3 functions by trying to predict text based on the input provided by the users. The idea is to provide the model with some initial text that will be used by the model to predict further text. This process is repeated by the model for generating new text each time it runs.

During the training process, OpenAI GPT-3 was fed with almost all the content existing over the internet. So whenever it provides us with output, it is actually making a kind of guess based on some statistical calculations and the human-generated online text that it has been trained with.

OpenAI GPT-3 Demos

For the last few days, many intriguing OpenAI GPT-3 demos are doing round on the internet. We curated them here for you to decide if AI threat is becoming real?

1. OpenAI GPT-3 becomes an Author

OpenAI GPT-3 has been able to produce poetic text identical to various authors. Unlike the literature text generated by other NLP models in the past, the literature generated by GPT-3 model looks much more believable and not gibberish. Below is Shakespeare inspired poem generated by the model (Source)

2. OpenAI GPT-3, the Blogger

OpenAI GPT-3 has a unique feature where we can provide it a small prompt as seed and on the basis of that, the model can generate a complete article on that topic that is convincing and coherent for the readers. The below snapshot shows an article where the content for the article was written by the GPT-3 model on its own topic. When you read through the article you will feel that it is a human-written article on GPT-3, but the confession by the author at the end leaves the reader in shock that it was instead generated by GPT-3 itself.

Is OpenAI GPT-3 AI Threat Real?

With all the advantages that OpenAI GPT-3 brings with itself, we cannot neglect the major risk that it poses. After seeing these OpenAI GPT-3 demos people might think it is using common sense for answering the questions, but actually, the model doesn’t know what all these words mean or the context in which they should be used. Neither the model is supplied with any kind of semantic understanding model that helps it to decipher the words and topics it works on.

After people have gone overboard with the exaggerations of the OpenAI’s GPT-3 results, Sam Altman, the founder of OpenAI tweeted to make people aware that it is not the perfect AI that people always envisioned and has its own weakness.

Indeed, it is all about measuring how properly you can give starting “prompt” to GPT-3 to make it give results as per your expectations. Manuel Aroaz, who had been doing so many experiments with GPT-3 beta version that we listed here also have a similar view in his Tweet.


In fact, after analyzing the behavior of GPT-3, it is easy to trick it to give nonsensical answers. Look at the below answers by GPT-3 (Source)

In spite of some of its weaknesses, no one can deny the fact the Open AI GPT-3 demos are really mindblowing and it will once again open the debate of potential misuse by generating fake information,  just like DeepFakes.


After looking at these OpenAI GPT-3 demos and examples on Twitter, we can surely say that yes, OpenAI GPT-3 has taken some long strides towards the phase of human intelligence AI but it is still a model that can answer questions based on its training and not through common sense.
