The OpenAI’s Generative Pre-trained Transformer Model

A short brief information about:
Transformer Model

Vaswani et al. introduced the Transformer model, a type of neural network architecture, in 2017, and it has since become one of the most popular and commonly used models in natural language processing. (NLP).

The Transformer model is built around the concept of attention, which allows it to choose focus on specific parts of the input sequence while processing it. This process of attention is done through a number of self-attention layers, which allow the model to learn correlations between different words and phrases in the input sequence.

The Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) model is a neural network architecture created primarily for natural language processing (NLP) tasks. According to ChatGPT, it was introduced by OpenAI in 2018 and has subsequently been updated to newer versions such as GPT-2 and GPT-3, according to ChatGPT.

Publicly Available Versions

GPT have been publicly available for months now, it can be accessed through the website, After creating an account in

During the early months of being public, you had to apply to be on waitlist, but today you no longer have to wait that long and just head over to the website in order to try the generative pre-trained transformer model.


As per ChatGPT-3, there are multiple variations of the same version. The list as follows based on its parameter counts:

GPT-3 Small: 125 million parameters
GPT-3 Medium: 350 million parameters
GPT-3 Large: 760 million parameters
GPT-3 XL: 1.3 billion parameters
GPT-3 2.7B: 2.7 billion parameters
GPT-3 6B: 6 billion parameters
GPT-3 13B: 13 billion parameters
GPT-3 175B: 175 billion parameters


This LLM model has 1 trillion parameters almost ten times larger than its predecessor GPT-3.


Based on rumors GPT-5 will complete its training on December 2023, there are currently no news from openai regarding this version of the LLM.

The future: AGI

As the current model progresses the Artificial General Intelligence can be seen on the horizon of AI innovation and will difinitely shape the future, whatever type of future it may shape, it could be a utopia or a dystopia.

Founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk have been giving warnings toward the development of Artificial Intelligence for yearss now. He’s been highlighting the possible risks in the advancement of AI technology. Surely, it can pretty much help us with our unsolvable problems but it does not exclude the possible risks that it can pose to the human civilization.
