Microsoft has received an AI license. Scientists consider this model "too dangerous"

Microsoft has announced an exclusive license for the OpenAI GPT-3 text generation model. She can generate very

realistic text, and it can be embedded inany application or service. The company previously invested $ 1 billion in a San Francisco-based startup and became an exclusive partner of OpenAI. Microsoft will now have access to technology and will be able to use it in its services.

OpenAI has released the GPT-3 model fora limited group of developers, but the researchers "highly appreciated its capabilities." The company noted that the model can not only generate automatic text, it is also capable of more creative tasks - AI can write poetry, computer code or create memes.

Moreover, the model is so powerful that OpenAIinitially refused to publish even a limited version of the previous GPT-2 model. Scientists feared it could be used to write realistic false news. Despite its huge size and power, the model can be used by almost anyone.

OpenAI first collects huge amounts of data fromthe Internet and analyzes them for stylistic patterns that allow you to realistically predict which letters or words will be written next.

When the user feeds a word to the generator,phrase or longer piece of text, it enhances this tool. The results can be used to create stories, dissertations, play chess, solve math problems, or create text scripts.

Experts warned that the system generatesthe texts are very realistic, and scammers can use it to publish fake news. The researchers originally announced the system in February 2019, but declined to publish the full version of the program. They feared that it would be used to spread fake news, spam, and disinformation.
