Blackbox problem with AI was just the beginning, now new “Revolutionary” NLP Model GPT-3 moves from open source to closed; Will make AI broadly accessible at the expense of transparency.

Hidden biases are a major problem with machine learning and AI. It’s significant that the move to hide the inner working of this technology comes shortly after Timnit Gebru, a well-known artificial intelligence researcher at Google, well known for her work on the race and gender bias of facial recognition systems, was fired.

As AI is used more and more mission critical applications, including legal and financial decisions, infrastructure management and the use of deadly force in law enforcement and military, we will need more transparency , not less.

Countless are the use cases that revolutionary AI model GPT-3, which uses deep learning to produce human-like text, can power. But, while it has potential for generative value, it is set to reshape both the dynamics of the AI world and the SaaS startup space because of its very own business model.

OpenAI provides the ready-made model as a commercial product in the form of a “text in, text out” interface. As such, GPT-3 resets the rules of the AI model game because it does not give away its code but merely offers an easy-to-use application programming interface (API) on a commercial basis, allowing developers to tap into the GPT-3 power while not giving away a peak into its inner workings.
