OpenAI’s latest upgrade for GPT-3 has given the generalised language model some impressive new creative skills.
This week, OpenAI released a new text model (text-davinci-003) for GPT-3. Researchers have been playing around with the model to see what it can now do.
One user on Hacker News asked GPT-3 to write “a short rhyming poem explaining Einstein’s theory of general relativity in easy but accurate terms.”
This was the result:
“If you want to understand Einstein’s thought
It’s not that hard if you give it a shot
General Relativity is the name of the game
Where space and time cannot remain the same
Mass affects the curvature of space
Which affects the flow of time’s race
An object’s motion will be affected
By the distortion that is detected
The closer you are to a large mass
The slower time will seem to pass
The farther away you may be
Time will speed up for you to see”
Another user asked GPT-3 to rewrite the poem in the style of 19th-century English poet John Keats:
“Oh, what a wondrous force of might
That Einstein’s mind did conjure up
To show us how the fabric of space
Is so profoundly warp and sup
Mass doth affect the shape of time
And cause our clocks to slow or speed
For time and space are linked together
As our great minds have here decreed”
Beyond poetry, GPT-3 was also found to be able to invent new game rules:

We prompted GPT-3 to “Write a song about war and peace” and it created a song complete with verses, bridge, and chorus:
There are some rumours that OpenAI is preparing to announce GPT-4. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said in a Q&A last year that GPT-4 is coming and that, despite some expectations, it won’t have 100T parameters.
Until GPT-4 is officially announced, we’ll just have to enjoy the impressive upgrades to GPT-3.
