Why is the blog post 'GPT-3 has the most destructive potential since Bitcoin' so popular?

The blog post 'OpenAI's GPT-3 may be the biggest since Bitcoin' published by Manuel Araos, former CTO of

OpenZeppelin , which builds tools for developers of distributed systems, has received a lot of attention. is. GPT-3, a language model that can create high-precision text, is certainly a great technology, but the point of this blog post was elsewhere.

At the beginning of the article, 'I will share the contents of an early experiment using OpenAI's new language prediction model (GPT-3). I wonder why GPT-3 has the potential to be as devastating as blockchain technology. I'll explain why you're doing it. '

In the text, it is pointed out that the GPT-3 generation text posted on the bitcointalk.org forum received a positive reaction and may give unexpected fun to various communities in the future. increase.

However, the most notable part of this article is below the line-separated part, after 'Now for the fun part'. Here, Mr. Manuel reveals that the text part of the above article was not written by himself, but by GPT-3.

The information Manuel gave to GPT-3 is as follows. You can see that the information about the site, the subject line of the blog, and the summary were by Manuel, but everything else was proprietary to GPT-3.

Manuel has only slightly modified the format of the text generated by GPT-3, with little modification, and as the title he made in advance, it is one of the biggest technological advances I have seen so far. I felt that it was.

In addition, various other GPT-3 generated statements have been released. For example, the following is the shocking news that 'a herd of unicorns was found in the Andes. The unicorns were able to speak English perfectly.' The content is so natural that there is no discomfort except for the appearance of the unicorn.

There is also text that lets GPT-3 itself explain how GPT-3 works.

Delian Asparouhov , a director of the venture capital founders fund led by Peter Thiel , shared the idea that the GPT-3 would serve as a human buddy rather than a stand-alone one, and Steve Jobs once used the computer as a 'heart'. The GPT-3 is described as a 'race car of the heart' by comparing it to the expression 'bicycle'.
