What is the definition of an application?

My company wants to use GPT-3 for summarization of a large corpus we have. These summaries will then be available as a meta-data source to product teams to improve search functionality on our app etc. We need to request a limit increase in order to run the API on our whole corpus. However, when I go to fill out the increase form it gives you the options for “application” or “research.”

This isn’t really an application, but it also isn’t research exactly. Does anyone have any guidance here? Do I need to go through application approval for this? Or is this construed as research?

I would just put “Application” since you are applying it to solve a problem, but I don’t work there so that’s just my $0.02 :no_mouth:
