Using GPT-3 to make web apps

GPT-3 is OpenAI's newest language model, that uses deep learning to produce human-like text. Ever since the release of GPT-3, I have been super excited. It is not readily accessible yet, even though it is open-source, but I am on the waitlist, and believe me I can't wait. For now, I have been messing around with GPT-2. It is not quite as impressive but still a bit of fun.

While reading about GPT-3, I ended up finding this github repository. It gives some python code which you can use to create cool web demos using the newly released OpenAI GPT-3 API with just a few lines of Python. One example is included in the README section which shows how to create an app which converts words into latex. For example you could input "the integral of x squared from 1 to 5" and the app would output '\\int_0^{\\infty}'. Of course, wolfram alpha has been able to do this for years, but its just an example of the kind of things you can do. At some point, I will add a widget to this website showcasing a more interesting example.
