What Openai is looking for in applicants

About the Team

The Applied AI team is focused on continuously deploying advanced AI systems into the world.

In 2020 we introduced GPT-3 which the MIT Technology Review listed as one of its 10 Breakthrough Technologies of the year (alongside mRNA vaccines).
