In the effort curb misunderstanding and #AIHype on the topic of language models (LMs), we're circulating a tweet thread to offer a baseline understanding of how systems such as OpenAI's GPT-3 work to deliver sequences of human-like text in response to prompts. /1

NB: AI is itself a slippery term: we use it w/ caution. /2
