We're excited to announce the release of the newest addition to the GPT-3 model family: text-davinci-003. This model builds on top of our previous InstructGPT models, and improves on a number of behaviors that we’ve heard are important to you as developers.

text-davinci-003 includes the following improvements:

  • It produces higher quality writing. This will help your applications deliver clearer, more engaging, and more compelling content.

  • It can handle more complex instructions, meaning you can get even more creative with how you make use of its capabilities now.

  • It’s better at longer form content generation, allowing you to take on tasks that would have previously been too difficult to achieve.

To illustrate the improvements, check out the following example:


Prompt: "I am trying to write a web application. What backend frameworks could I use, and what are their pros and cons?"

There are many backend frameworks that could be used for a web application. Some popular ones include Django, Ruby on Rails, and Express.js. Each of these frameworks has its own pros and cons, so it is important to choose one that will fit the specific needs of your application.


Prompt: "I am trying to write a web application. What backend frameworks could I use, and what are their pros and cons?"

1. Node.js: Node.js is a JavaScript-based runtime environment that is popular for writing backend applications. Pros: Node.js is fast, lightweight, and easy to learn, and it has a large community of developers. Cons: Node.js can be difficult to debug and there is a lack of robust tools for building large-scale applications. 
2. Django: Django is a popular Python-based web framework. Pros: Django is powerful and well-documented, making it easy to get started. It also supports a wide range of databases and APIs, allowing you to easily integrate with other services. Cons: Django can be difficult to scale for large applications and can be slow for certain types of requests.
3. Ruby on Rails: Ruby on Rails is a popular web framework based on the Ruby programming language. Pros: Ruby on Rails is easy to learn and can be used to quickly build powerful web applications. It also has a wide range of built-in features, such as authentication and authorization. Cons: Ruby on Rails can be slow and resource-intensive, and it can be difficult to scale.

Starting today, you can access text-davinci-003 through our API and Playground at the same price as our other Davinci base language models.

We’re excited to see how you build with it, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!
