With Iain S. Thomas
This conversation is for all of us who are interested in Generative AI - the AI technologies that are generating content - and the fusion that is happening between them, and creative content producers. How is generative AI being used in the creative industry and what can its uses tell us about ourselves? To explore this and other questions, this episode takes us into the fascinating depths of Iain's creative project with GPT3 and the surprising outcomes.
This episode is a wonderful listen that highlights the possible synergy between technology and literature.
Iain is one of the world’s most popular poets and is the bestselling creator and author of numerous books, including I Wrote This for You, an experimental and pioneering prose and photography project. He has spoken, toured, and read his work all over the world and appeared on panels at numerous conferences, including BookCon in New York and the Sharjah International Book Fair in the UAE.
In November 2022, Iain released a book entitled: What Makes Us Human?: An Artificial Intelligence Answers Life’s Biggest Questions
To make "What Makes Us Human", Iain and the innovative researcher Jasmine Wang collaborated with OpenAI’s GPT-3, an advanced artificial intelligence.
GPT-3 (Generative Pretrained Transformer 3) is a state-of-the-art language processing AI model developed by OpenAI. It is capable of generating human-like text and has a wide range of applications, including language translation, language modeling, and generating text for applications such as chatbots. It is one of the largest and most powerful language processing AI models to date, with 175 billion parameters.
