OpenAI Makes GPT-3 Broadly Available To Developers Through API Service

OpenAI said that the decision to make OpenAI API more widely accessible was made possible due to the addition of new safety features.

OpenAI recently announced the broadened availability of its cloud-based OpenAI API service, which enables developers to build applications based on the research group’s sophisticated GPT-3 artificial intelligence model. Previously, developers had to sign up for a waitlist, and the availability was limited. 

OpenAI said that the decision to make OpenAI API more widely accessible was made possible due to the addition of new safety features. OpenAI has introduced a free content filter to help developers using GPT-3 in their applications detect abuse instantly. Over the past year, the company has developed endpoints for “more truthful” question-answering, provided a content filter to help mitigate abuse, and implemented models — “instruct” models — that ostensibly adhere better to human instructions. The research group said it can review developers’ applications before they launch and monitor for misuse. 

“Tens of thousands of developers are already taking advantage of powerful AI models through our platform. We believe that by opening access to these models via an easy-to-use API, more developers will find creative ways to apply AI to a large number of useful applications and open problems,” the OpenAI team stated in a blog post today.

Other changes include an improved Playground, which makes it easy to prototype with the models, an example library with dozens of prompts to get developers started, and Codex, a new model that translates natural language into code. Another new capability is a feature called Answers. The feature should make GPT-3 more useful for companies building applications such as customer support chatbots. With Answers, a company can provide GPT-3 with information from sources such as product guides and internal knowledge bases.

OpenAI makes GPT-3 available to developers through its OpenAI API service, which is a cloud-based application programming interface priced based on usage. 

GPT-3’s ability to perform tasks ranging from translation to coding is the result of a unique architecture developed by OpenAI’s researchers. The new features in the OpenAI API are the result of a push by the search group to grow the number of use cases to which GPT-3 can be applied. As part of the effort, OpenAI has also developed Codex, an AI model that can automatically generate software code based on text prompts.
