Digital Vibes, a provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, believes that the city of Thunder Bay has a high level of digital divide and digital disadvantage among the aging population and Indigenous Peoples in terms of digital literacy. Digital divide defines who has access to the internet, computers, and mobile devices. Digital literacy is whether people have the knowledge to use technology.
These disadvantages are present throughout the whole region of North-western Ontario and are based on facts such as access, education, and income. The result is that the people may not be equipped to share in today’s technology-driven economy, adversely affecting the community’s economic, environmental, and social welfare. Digital Vibes believes that Thunder Bay’s digital divide is mostly due to a variant of digital literacy. Because of the shortfall, they have taken on the task of not only making the citizens of Thunder Bay digitally literate, but to serve Canada’s most affected community, the First Nations Peoples. The company understands that progressive change is a challenge, but with years of digital media experience, confidence in their services, and the potential of digital technologies, they are driven by their mission to deliver technological solutions to everyone, and to empower consumers with the technology to help them live, play, and work smarter.
Businesses do not have the time or know-how to investigate and evaluate technologies. After assessing individual needs through Innovative Services, Campaigns, Consulting, Assessments, and Presentations to governments, businesses, and schools, Digital Vibes tailor their services to suit individual clients, because no two businesses are alike. One way content creation, marketing, and research can be more impactful and relevant to increase a company’s profitability is to use AI. Another way is to use front-line research and technologies such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Deep Learning for innovative processes and transformation in an unsettling digital era. As technology continually changes, the solution Digital Vibes presently offers is built upon the latest open-source technology by the company OpenAI namely GPT-3. It controls the most developed AI writing tool that uses NLP to help clients achieve customised experiences. This technology enables Digital Vibes to solve a highly compound problem that would otherwise require huge funds and teams of competent data scientists.

OpenAI is an artificial intelligence research laboratory based in San Francisco, United States. A group of investors, including Elon Musk (who is famous for the electric car Tesla) founded the company in 2015. OpenAI announced an API for developers (to create innovative technologies and to build new applications and services) as its first commercial product. The API has a powerful universal language model, GPT-3 (a machine learning model with more than 175 billion parameters). OpenAI’s API provides access to GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) that completes an extensive range of natural language tasks to translate natural language to code. It is an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text. Given an original text as prompt, GPT-3 will create text that continues with the prompt. The language model can write code, produce business ideas, create fiction, write poetry, compose music, and copy human moods.
Although in-site search is available from general web search providers such as Google, it is part of general web searching. The search engine crawls the web as well as the client sites and offers search features limited to the target site. This complicated task is only available to large organisations such as Google and Microsoft. When the OpenAI API launched, AlgoliaAI (a San Francisco company specialising in Information Technology, Search Engines, and Software) partnered with OpenAI to integrate GPT-3 with their advanced search technology (provided as a service). At the time, they offered web search of client websites through a host search engine. To understand and answer specific customer questions is to connect the questions to accurate content. By incorporating GPT-3 as a powerful search engine tool, AlgoliaAI will be able to create their ‘new Answers’ product. Microsoft invested one billion dollars in OpenAI and established a multiyear contract with the San Francisco-based start-up to design, engineer, and test additional AI technological research, and develop AI-based supercomputing technologies. As part of the agreement, OpenAI will run its services on Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform. Since its release, GPT-3 has gone viral as a state-of-the-art AI learning model. While it does not have a brain, it is the most powerful language model that can produce human-like text on demand. Companies that grow with OpenAI’s API Developers can adapt GPT-3 to suit their own applications.
Although Natural Language Processing has been around for years, it has had a great influence in the development of the digital world. Examples of NLP tools that are used every day are such as Autocomplete, chatbots, Gmail spam filters, search engines, social media monitoring tools, Spell check grammar correction software, translation software, voice assistants, and Voice text messaging. As momentum for machine learning and AI accelerated, NLP played a vital role in human and computer communication. Although Natural Language Processing’s downgraded definition is that of the interaction between human language and computers, its descriptive definition is that NLP is a branch of artificial intelligence combined with fundamentals of Computer Science, Linguistics, Human Language, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Information
Engineering algorithms used by computers to analyse and manipulate human languages. The threefold program of NLP is to teach machines to interpret conversational inputs from humans, to bridge the gap between human communication and computer knowledge, and to establish communication channels between humans and machines. NLP processes and analyses large amounts of data to give meaning to human languages by interacting with computers to recognise and understand characters, sentences, statements, or written words in natural language. Once processing has reached this stage, computers are able to participate in communication with natural language(s) in all forms such as speech, print, writing, and signing.
With Natural Language Processing’s rapid advancement and development of new tools, old NLP applications need to be updated. The fastest-growing sub-division of AI (linguistics and computer science) that programs computers to analyse and process natural language data makes human language ‘logical’ to machines. This is amazing news for businesses and individuals, as NLP can truly influence how day-to-day activities are managed. OpenAI’s intentions are for the safe development of Artificial Intelligence to benefit humanity.
