Yann LeCun, the Chief AI Scientist at Facebook, on OpenAI's hyped GPT-3 Language Model

“It’s entertaining, and perhaps mildly useful as a creative help,”... “But trying to build intelligent machines by scaling up language models is like [using] high-altitude airplanes to go to the Moon. You might beat altitude records, but going to the Moon will require a completely different approach.”

#Comment: LeCun (a merchant of doom) is right. GPT3 is a reflection of the organisation that produced it: OpenAI - A poorly disguised US-Intel/Military "innovation" front, run by sleazy used car salesmen that primarily offer overhyped bullshit.
