Theres a lot going on in data right now! Usually the summer is quiet, but this is probably my favorite issue in months.
Hope you and yours are healthy in the midst of this crazy year. If youre anything like me, this was the best news youve had all year.

On GPT-3
The technology twitterverse is abuzz with GPT-3 experiments. Even having high-level understanding of the model, Ive been taken aback at some of the things that people have been able to do with it. Im not at all surprised that its been able to do a very good job of generating prose, but writing syntactically correct HTML and SQL that accomplishes a users natural language intent? That安as unexpected.
The below two posts are the best overviews that Ive seen, and I want to include them here because if you havent familiarized yourself with this topic I think its important that you do. This feels important. Even with the current (obviously imperfect) version, there will be real production use cases and plenty of fascinating and unexpected downstream results.
I highly recommend spending some time diving into this, and these are two good starting points.
