After watching a lot of buzz about GPT-3 on social media and how it will change the world, I decided to write a collection of some of the best uses of GPT-3 by OpenAI.

Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is an autoregressive language model for creating human-like text with deep learning technologies.

GPT-3 is the next big thing for deep learning after Netscape Navigator, and it’s expected to change the world. I believe that GPT-3 will serve as a great helper to humankind in all fields, including software development, teaching, writing poetry, and even comprehending large volumes of text.

So, let’s take a walk through the streets of Twitter and learn about 20 amazing uses, inventions, and applications of GPT-3 that illustrate its immense potential. The original Tweets can be found below.


Take your career to the next level with Machine Learning

These five, curated ML courses by Adaptilab will give you a valuable leg up on your journey.

Become a Machine Learning Engineer Path


1. Code Oracle

Not only can GPT-3 generate code for you, but it can also comprehend the code written by you. Here is an example where GPT-3 explains the code written in Python in detail.

2. Designer

Here is a beautiful integration of Figma plugin and GPT-3 to generate beautiful web templates. The developer inputs the following text:

“An app that has a navigation bar with a camera icon, “Photos” title, and a message icon. A feed of photos with each photo having a user icon, a photo, a heart icon, and a chat bubble icon”

And generates this beautiful, simple application.

3. JSX Layout Maker

This was one of the first examples of GPT-3 to generate code that caught the attention of the tweeple. It shows how to generate a JSX layout just by defining it in plain English.


4. Regex Generator

In this example, we observe that GPT-3 is also capable of generating Regex for different use-cases. You input the Regex you want in plain English, provide an example string that will match, and it generates the Regex in seconds.

5. Website Mocker

The brilliant combination of Figma and GPT-3 has once again proved to be game-changing. In this example GPT-3 is able to clone the website by receiving the URL of the website.

The developer inputs the following text:

“A website like stripe that is about a chat app”

And it outputs the follow web app:

6. Object use-case generation

Here, we get an interesting example where GPT-3 tell us what things can be done with an inputted object.


7. Autoplotter

In this Tweet, we see that GPT-3 can also generate charts and plots from plain English. Here, it uses SVG charts to produce details charts.

8. A complete evaluation

This Tweet explains the basic use of GPT-3 text generation in many interesting ways. It shows that GPT-3 can play games like finding analogies, identifying paintings from naive descriptions, generating articles, and also recommending books. And it requires no training or massive data uploads.

12. The AI recursion

What will happen when Machine Learning models start writing Machine learning models? It sounds like the story of a Sci-fi movie, but it’s a reality now GPT-3 can write ML models for specific datasets and tasks. Here, the developer used GPT-3 to generate code for an ML model only by describing the dataset and required output.

16. The Interactive Voice Response creator

We must have dealt with IVR in our day-to-day life for booking just about any appointment. GPT-3 can generate IVR flow and generate it pretty fast.


17. The 3D scene generator

GPT-3 can generate 3D scenes using the three.js Javascript API. It generates code for the 3D scene if you describe the scene to it. Curently, it can generate just simple 3D objects.

20. The Cricket commentator

The job of sports commentators is also at risk by the advent of GPT-3. Sites like Cricbuzz and Cricinfo use GPT to generate textual cricket commentaries.

Wrapping up

GPT-3 is amazing, and there are so many more things that it can be used to do. I hope this inspired you to look into GPT-3 and other deep learning technologies. Machine learning is our future, and the possibilities truly seem limitless. It’s important that we don’t fall behind or miss our on these fun, incredible tools.

If you want to learn more about machine learning and AI, check out Educative’s Adaptilab Machine Learning Engineer courses. These five courses are focused on giving you the practical skills to solve real-world ML problems and applications, rather than emphasizing complex theory.

By the time you’re done, you’ll have the ability to get hired as a Machine Learning developer.

Happy learning!
