Jasper is an interface that uses GPT-3. It recently raised $125M at a $1.5B valuation. Jasper’s per-word cost is 100X more than using GPT-3 through OpenAI, but the real cost is opportunity cost since Jasper prevents learning to write your prompts.
Prompt writing is how you interact with GPT-3 directly.
Learning prompt writing is important because it gives context to the AI and control to the human. It’s important for the same reasons prompt engineering isn’t going away, which I recently wrote about here.
People that learn to utilize technologies like GPT-3 directly will be the ones to benefit most from the future of AI.
