The AMD CFO was questioned during the Barclays Global Technology Conference, where she was asked about the future of PC markets and the upcoming trend of the "AI PC" and how much of an influence AI PCs will have in boosting sales. Hu said that the PC industry is moving towards recovery in the post-pandemic world, with revenue forecasts and consumer demand to increase in 2024-2025.

AMD CFO Jean Hu said during the Barclay Global Technology Conference: "Going forward, you will see the typical seasonality in Q1 and then, you know, next year, based on industry and it's economic-sensitive sector, too. So, we don't know what the macroeconomic situation will be. But in the end, the PC market is stabilized".

During an interview with Bloomberg News when Raimondo was visiting Nashua, New Hampshire, she said: "We look at every spec of every new chip, obviously to make sure it doesn't violate the export controls. We talk to NVIDIA regularly, and I should say they're a good partner. We have a close working relationship with them. They share information".

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning was asked about the US actions on Tuesday, where they said that they "undermine the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies and will not be conducive to the stability of the global and industrial supply chains". She added during a regular press briefing in Beijing that the new moves contradicted "the principles of market economy and fair competition".

Elon Musk's new Grok AI busted using OpenAI ChatGPT responses

Jak Connor | Dec 10, 2023 4:03 PM CST

It was only a few days ago that Elon Musk rolled out the new artificial intelligence-powered chatbot Grok, developed by his AI company xAI.

Elon Musk's new Grok AI busted using OpenAI ChatGPT responses

Grok was rolled out to Premium+ X subscribers across the United States, and according to official statements, the new chatbot is powered by the generative model called Grok-1. That is an important fact, as it's a different underlying model powering OpenAI's ChatGPT, which is currently GPT-4. Notably, Grok differentiates itself from other competing chatbots by incorporating real-time data from X, enabling it to provide responses on posts occurring on X in real-time.

Now, all AI-powered chatbots are prone to hallucinations, which is when the chatbot provides a response that contains false or misleading information. This phenomenon occurs in all Large Language Models (LLMs), which is the underlying technology powering the experience (Grok-1, or ChatGPT's GPT-4).

Tesla has just lost the project lead for its Dojo supercomputer project, according to "people familiar with the matter" in a new report from Bloomberg.

Tesla's Dojo AI supercomputer boss leaves, former Apple executive now leads Dojo AI

Ganesh Venkataramanan was the former head of the Dojo supercomputer project at Tesla, in that position for the last five years, leaving Tesla last month in November 2023. Tesla has appointed former Apple executive and director at Tesla for the last seven years, Peter Bannon, to lead the Dojo project.

What is Tesla's new Dojo supercomputer? Tesla announced its in-house Dojo D1 AI processor in August 2021 as a Tesla-designed supercomputer that has been created to train the machine learning models for Tesla's self-driving technology. The Dojo AI processor will take in all of the data captured by the Tesla vehicle you're driving and process it faster than ever before and would lead to the future of self-driving technology in autonomous cars.

Meta releases new AI image generator called 'Imagine'

Jak Connor | Dec 7, 2023 12:18 AM CST

Meta has published a new website called Imagine, the company's new artificial intelligence-powered text-to-image generator.

Meta releases new AI image generator called 'Imagine'

Meta is making it clear that it's fully getting onto the artificial intelligence-powered train that many big technology companies are quickly adopting. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg even said earlier this year that the company would be integrating AI into "every single one of our products," and this recent announcement is a reflection of that. The new image generator will be using Meta's Emu model and will be capable of generating four images every prompt.

Notably, these images each have a visible watermark located in the bottom left corner. This watermark appears on every generated image and informs viewers of the image it was created using Meta AI. However, this visible watermark isn't likely to last long as Meta says they are currently in the process of testing an invisible watermark technique that is "resilient to common image manipulations like cropping, color change (brightness, contrast, etc.), screen shots and more."

TPUs have been the basis for training and serving AI-powered products, including YouTube, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Play, and Android. Google's just-announced generative AI model -- Gemini -- was trained on and is served using TPUs from Google. The company is also announcing AI Hypercomputer and Google Cloud. This new groundbreaking supercomputer architecture uses an integrated system of performance-optimized hardware, open software, leading ML frameworks, and flexible consumption models.

Google says its new TPU v5p is capable of 459 teraFLOPS of bfloat16 performance or 918 teraOPS of Int8, with a huge 95GB of HBM3 memory with up to 2.76TB/sec of memory bandwidth. Google can use as many as 8960 x TPU v5p AI accelerators together in a single pod, using Google's in-house 600GB/sec inter-chip interconnect to train models faster or at a greater precision. This is 35% bigger than what was possible with TPU v5e and over twice as large as what was possible on TPU v4.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang spoke with reporters in Singapore on Wednesday, talking about their dominant position in the AI market with increasing AI GPU competition, as well as saying it'll comply with new US regulations.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: we will adhere 'perfectly' to latest US rules on AI GPUs into China

China has a booming AI chip market that is worth $7 billion, and NVIDIA takes a dominating 90% share of that AI chip market, which is why the recent US sanctions are going to change that. The new US sanctions also create an opportunity for Chinese rivals to boost their own AI chip foothold while NVIDIA creates alternate AI GPU solutions.

Huang spoke with reporters while he was in Singapore on Wednesday, where he is meeting up with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to talk about all things AI. Huang said: "NVIDIA has been working very closely with the U.S. government to create products that comply with its regulations. Our plan now is to continue to work with the government to come up with a new set of products that comply with the new regulations that have certain limits".

It has happened a lawmaker has used OpenAI's ChatGPT to write a proposal for a new law to be passed, which it later was - unanimously.

Politician admits he secretly used ChatGPT to write and pass a new law

The politician is city councilman Ramiro Rosário, and the new law he proposed was entirely written by ChatGPT, according to a new report from AP where the politician is quoted admitting to using the AI-powered technology. Rosário said that he asked OpenAI's ChatGPT to write him a proposal to prevent the city from charging taxpayers to replace water consumption meters if they are stolen. The chatbot spat out the answer, and he took it directly to his 35 peers without informing them of its origin.

"If I had revealed it before, the proposal certainly wouldn't even have been taken to a vote," Rosário told the AP by phone on Thursday.

Mandatory AI face scanning is coming to adult-only websites to verify age

Jak Connor | Dec 6, 2023 12:31 AM CST

Artificial intelligence-powered face scanning technology may soon become a mandatory feature of adult-only websites, as regulators want to prevent minors from accessing pornography.

Mandatory AI face scanning is coming to adult-only websites to verify age

The UK's Office of Communications (Ofcom) has released a press release that explains that it's making moves to enforce the UK's legal age to watch porn (18 years old), and a new way to make sure pornography websites are being accessed by users of the legal age the regulator will soon be enforcing all apps and sites displaying adult-only content to implement a new "age assurance" systems that verify the age of users.

If a site or app doesn't "ensure that children are not normally able to encounter pornography on their service," they are at risk of fines. Out with the old, in with the new. Ofcom writes that any technology such as "self-declaration of age," online payment that's accessible to minors, and "general terms, disclaimers or warnings" would no longer prevent adult sites from receiving penalties.
