OpenAI Text Generation

The OpenAPI text generation system was previously described as 'too dangerous', has now been released in a new and I assume less dangerous form.   Seems to claim generalized text completion tasks, and they claim is very easy to test, and provide code below.   My impression would be skeptical that such a generalized approach would require context (common sense) assumptions that are still hard. 

Described below:


We’re releasing an API for accessing new AI models developed by OpenAI. Unlike most AI systems which are designed for one use-case, the API today provides a general-purpose “text in, text out” interface, allowing users to try it on virtually any English language task. You can now request access in order to integrate the API into your product, develop an entirely new application, or help us explore the strengths and limits of this technology.

Given any text prompt, the API will return a text completion, attempting to match the pattern you gave it. You can “program” it by showing it just a few examples of what you’d like it to do; its success generally varies depending on how complex the task is. The API also allows you to hone performance on specific tasks by training on a dataset (small or large) of examples you provide, or by learning from human feedback provided by users or labelers. ...
