Large Language Models (LLM) have come out of the realm of academia and research and become available to average development teams thanks to the efforts of Open AI and their competitors. Now that we have access to them what can we do with them?

This talk will explore some of the practical uses for GPT-3 made available through Open AI. We will start with a brief introduction to LLM's and transformers and how they bring us a step closer to artificial general intelligence. We will focus on real demonstrations. Each capability will start with a canned demonstration and move on to ad hoc input provided by the audience.
