Information and Background

GPT stands for Generative Pre-training Transformer. GPT-3 is a powerful tool initially released in 2020 by OpenAI, it uses deep learning to produce human like text. Given an initial text prompt by anyone it can continue the text by making additions to it just like a human, copying the writing style as well. The quality of output is really high and as such it gets difficult to judge whether the text was written by a human or an AI. GPT-3 is a succesor to OpenAI's GPT-2 model which was launched in February 2019. GPT2 was only capable of performing simple tasks.

How to use the GPT Playground?

Using the playground requires creating an account on the OpenAI platform. After an account is created you get $18 in credits to explore the platform and can use it to try out the different models like Davinci and more. These free credits expire after 4 months so make sure you use them before that! The playground has different "presets" or examples for different use cases like generating a summary of input text, creating bullet points, language translation, writing SQL queries and more.
