What is GPT-3?
GPT-3 is a neural network machine learning model that has been trained using internet data to generate any type of text.
It is developed by OpenAI and requires a small amount of input text to generate large volumes of relevant and sophisticated machine-generated text.
GPT-3 is the largest neural network ever produced and is better than any prior model for producing text that is convincing enough to seem like a human could have written it.
How can you use GPT-3?
GPT-3 can be used to create articles, poetry, stories, news reports and dialogue using just a small amount of input text that can be used to produce large amounts of quality copy.
It is also being used for automated conversational tasks, responding to any text that a person types into the computer with a new piece of text appropriate to the context. GPT-3 can create anything with a text structure, and not just human language text.
It can also automatically generate text summarizations and even programming code.

I found that GPT-3 did quite well on the easier riddles, but struggled more with the more difficult ones.
On average, GPT-3 got about 3 out of 5 of the riddles correct. Some of the more difficult riddles were about specific cultural references or things that required extensive knowledge about the world.
For example, Riddle 5 asked about the country of origin of a cartoon character’s favorite thing. This is a difficult question for a machine learning model because it requires a lot of contextual knowledge about the world.
Overall, I was impressed with how well GPT-3 did on the riddles and logical problems. It showed good basic reasoning abilities and was able to solve most of the easier riddles.
