The artificial intelligence research company OpenAI will eliminate the waiting list for access to the API of its natural language processing program GPT-3.

The move will accelerate access to the widely known text-generating AI model, and is a sign that OpenAI believes the program is safe enough — and can be monitored sufficiently — to be disseminated more widely.

Developers from more than 130 supported countries will be able to sign up to access GPT-3's API and begin experimenting immediately, OpenAI said. Developers previous had to sit on a waiting list as OpenAI reviewed them before they could even get experimental access. Though the waiting list will be eliminated, developers will still need OpenAI's approval for production-scale applications.

"We think a lot of value can come from getting more developers to build solutions to problems that they see in their environments," says Peter Welinder, VP of products and partnerships at OpenAI.
