Open-Al by Microsoft is no longer free & open source

In the area of artificial intelligence, there was one hot term this year: GPT-3.

It was built at a cost of 12 million US dollars by the artificial intelligence non-profit organisation OpenAI, spanning 175 billion criteria, achieving the latest best SOTA and writing standard equivalent to humans. The natural language processing model GPT-3, under the blessing of multiple auras, has become an AI artifact.

OpenAI agreed to open the GPT-3 commercial API in September, and a pricing schedule was also revealed. Just a few days earlier, OpenAI and Microsoft jointly announced that the exclusive license for GPT-3 had been secured by Microsoft.

This decision, however, drew the wrath of business experts like Elon Musk, co-founder of OpenAI, and Gary Marcus, a well-known artificial intelligence scholar.

“Research in artificial intelligence will shift toward democracy”

Microsoft posted a blog on its official website on September 22, 2020 reporting that Microsoft has cooperated with OpenAI to receive the GPT-3 language model’s exclusive authorization.

  Microsoft Executive Vice President and CTOKevin Scott stated in his blog:

Microsoft, which has been exclusively authorized by GPT-3, will use technological innovation to develop and deliver advanced artificial intelligence solutions for customers, while using the amazing power of GPT-3 to create new solutions. Microsoft will make the most cutting-edge artificial intelligence research towards democracy, so as to help realize safe general artificial intelligence.

The commercial and artistic opportunity released by the GPT-3 platform is massive, Kevin Scott claims, and there are several future applications that we can’t even imagine. It can not be done by a single technology corporation alone in order to fully enhance the ability of GPT-3 in a large-scale, responsible and economically equal way. It needs more feedback from humans.

It appears to articulate a word in the blog post: we have seen the great benefit of OpenAI.

Kevin Scott also indicated that in the future, AI translation software would be developed, and even GPT-3 would be used to help people write, although the exact commercial usage was not explicitly specified.

So, how is the ‘special license’ clarified by OpenAI?

In its blog post No. 22, OpenAI made it clear that “complete permission” would not impact the continued access of users to the GPT-3 platform via the API. Users will still be able to build apps through APIs in the future.

According to the international media The Verge, however, the Microsoft spokesman confirmed that the ruling granted Microsoft the exclusive right to use the underlying GPT-3 technology, which contains new innovations that Microsoft is planning to apply to its own goods and services.

In July 2019, looking back at OpenAI and Microsoft collaboration, it is a milestone time node.

Microsoft reported an investment in OpenAI of $1 billion at the time. As OpenAI’s exclusive cloud service provider, Microsoft will collaborate with OpenAI to create a new Azure AI supercomputing platform for a long time in order to further expand AI capability.

In return, some of the intellectual property rights were awarded to Microsoft through OpenAI.

After that, these intellectual property rights were commercialized by Microsoft and marketed to collaborators. It used Azure to train and run AI models in the phase of OpenAI ‘s development of next-generation computing hardware.

The collaboration between the two has yielded results in less than a year: on May 19, 2020, at the Build 2020 developer conference, Microsoft unveiled a supercomputer designed for the OpenAI AI platform.

 Microsoft said that 
the performance of this supercomputer is among the top 5 in the world.

This supercomputer is devoted to training large-scale artificial intelligence models with 285,000 CPU cores, 10,000 GPUs and 400 Gbps network connections, making artificial intelligence models accessible from written books, educational manuals, history lectures, human resources guides and other public sources.

OpenAI seems to be one step closer to the $1 billion general artificial intelligence dream from the initial funding, the announcement of supercomputing, and the exclusive license.

“OpenAI could be called ClosedAI as well”

In the other hand, frustration has been demonstrated by many Twitter users.

The Entire Mars Catalogue, for example , argues that OpenAI should allow the universal use of GPT-3 and should not grant Microsoft an exclusive license. After all, Elon Musk, the co-founder of OpenAI, also alluded to The Entire Mars Catalog.

As the co-founder, Elon Musk speaks so unrelentingly to OpenAI. Is there any reason behind it?

Foreign media Business Insider’s view is that Elon Musk may be targeting Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates (Bill Gates).

Indeed, Elon Musk and Bill Gates, the two tech giants, have been fighting each other. On June 30th, Elon Musk also “refuted the rumors” saying: You can rest if you say that Bill Gates and I are lovers.

The most recent tit-for-tat between the two was when Bill Gates stated in a blog at the end of August that pickup trucks (such as Tesla Semi) and electric jet planes are likely to never appear. Elon Musk was of course unhappy when he heard it, saying “he doesn’t understand”.

Having said that, it is not the first time that Elon Musk has publicly criticized OpenAI.

As early as 2015, Elon Musk and LinkedIn founder, Y Combinator president and Pay Pal founder jointly announced the creation of Open AI, with the goal of creating an open AI that belongs to all mankind.

In February 2018, OpenAI officially announced that Elon Musk would withdraw from the board of directors to avoid a conflict of interest caused by Tesla. However, Elon Musk will continue to serve as an OpenAI consultant and provide financial support.

At the time, the outside world speculated that the possible reason was that Elon Musk would ask OpenAI scientists to help Tesla advise Tesla from time to time. OpenAI has become Tesla’s “foreign aid”.

The fundamental reason lies in the inherent contradiction between the two- if OpenAI is an ideal, then Tesla is the reality, and ideal and reality cannot coexist.

In February 2020, Elon Musk said on Twitter that he had “not high confidence” in OpenAI’s security measures in artificial intelligence. He also mentioned that he has “no control” and “limited insight” in OpenAI recently.

In addition to Elon Musk, Robust.AI founder and CEO, artificial intelligence giant Marcus (Gary Marcus) also became the incarnation of Ma Zhuang after learning of the news that Microsoft has obtained exclusive authorization: it turns out that having unique power is called democracy.

Answering questions, writing articles, translating, generating code, doing mathematical reasoning, data analysis, drawing charts, making resumes, and playing games are omnipotent, and the effects are very good. GPT-3 has become the hottest topic in the AI ​​field. Netizens exclaimed GPT -3 It’s fine.

However, even if it can play more than 50 tasks, GPT-3 still fails to pass some basic common sense questions and mathematical logic.

OpenAI co-founder Sam Altman also believes that GPT-3 is overhyped:

There is too much hype about GPT-3. It still has serious flaws and is sometimes stupid.

Not only that, but GPT-3 has also sparked a heated debate about the moral issues that powerful artificial intelligence programs may be used for evil purposes.

Initially, OpenAI refused to publish research related to GPT-3 because of concerns about its abuse.
