Jensen Huang, the co-founder and CEO of NVIDIA and one of the biggest faces of the computing world, has commented on artificial intelligence and the popularity of tools such as OpenAI's ChatGPT.
The NVIDIA CEO spoke at Berkeley Haas University's Dean's Speaker series, where he said that the adoption of artificial intelligence speaks for itself, as OpenAI's ChatGPT has already amassed 100 million users within two months of its releasing. According to Reuters, the AI chatbot broke the record for the fastest-growing consumer app, putting it ahead of TikTok, which took nine months to reach 100 million users. Huang describes the emergence of artificial intelligence in the form of tools such as ChatGPT as an "iPhone moment," but for AI.
It was only a few days ago Google unveiled its ChatGPT competitor called Bard, but the reveal came at a hefty price as it cost its parent company $100 billion.
The $100 billion was lost on Wednesday after trading hours when Alphabet Inc, Google's parent company, lost $100 billion in market value. The downward spiral of share prices came after Google unveiled its AI chatbot Bard, as investors feared that Google was going to lose search engine market share to Microsoft-owned competing search engine Bing. Notably, Google's announcement didn't specify a release date for its Bard chatbot, while a day before, Microsoft unveiled its new Bing-powered by an upgraded version of the technology underpinning OpenAI's extremely popular ChatGPT.
Google's announcement has been seen as sloppy and a knee-jerk reaction to Microsoft adopting ChatGPT into its search engine. To back this point up, Reuters reported that Google's marketing material for Bard contained a vital error. Bard was asked, "What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) can I tell my 9-year old about?" and the answer the AI provided was, "JWST took the very first pictures of a planet outside of our own solar system," which is factually incorrect.
In an exclusive interview with Dallas Innovates, famed programmer John Carmack explained the road to developing artificial general intelligence.
The development of artificial intelligence in its various forms has and is exponentially speeding up, and according to legendary DOOM programmer John Carmack, it's only a matter of time before AI is capable of simulating a human brain. Carmack says during the interview that the tools humans have developed throughout the ten years, or so they have been developing artificial intelligence will be enough for developers to reach artificial general intelligence.
However, there is an elephant in the room. Carmack explains that a massive hurdle will be "consciousness", or the element that makes life, life. Since humans don't fully understand what consciousness is or how it's developed, programmers are unable to replicate it in software. Notably, this hurdle is far from being overcome as AI developers don't even have systems that can "act like a mouse or a cat."
Microsoft has unveiled its new version of its search engine Bing, which will be powered by an upgraded version of the technology behind OpenAI's popular AI chatbot ChatGPT.
Microsoft has taken to its social channels and its website via a blog post to reveal what it's calling "the new Bing", which will work in tandem with an upgraded Edge browser and artificial intelligence. The company performed a small number of demos of what it intends to make widely available to users, and from the images provided below, we can see the traditional search has been moved to the left half of the screen, and the Bing chatbot (AI) shows its answers on the right. Microsoft demonstrated several queries such as recipes, travel tips, and shopping for furniture.
Microsoft's new Bing is capable of digesting news of recent events, which means the AI will be able to generate responses on recently occurring events - something that OpenAI's ChatGPT isn't capable of doing. Notably, the Bing chatbot was even able to answer questions about its own launch, citing recently written news posts and reports about the software.
Google announced it was going to reveal a new artificial intelligence system earlier in the week system and that it will revolutionize Google Search.
It was only a few days ago that Google sent initiations to certain members of the press informing them that they will be hosting an AI event on February 8, where they will explain more about their developments with artificial intelligence technologies. Ahead of that event, Google has taken to its blog with Sundar Pichai, Google, and Alphabet CEO, introducing the world to Bard, Google's new AI that is powered by its in-house Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA for short).
Pichai explains that Bard will be designed to enable human-like conversations via a text box where a user can ask it a variety of questions, from drills to increase soccer performance to simplifying complex topics down so a 9-year-old can understand them.
According to a new report, a Judge in Colombia has used the popular AI chatbot system ChatGPT to help with a court ruling. The case in question involved a dispute with a health insurance company and whether or not an autistic child was eligible for treatment. "The arguments for this decision will be determined in line with the use of artificial intelligence (AI)," Judge Juan Manuel Padilla Garcia wrote in the official decision, confirming that Chat GPT was used to assist in the ruling.
Questions like "Is an autistic minor exonerated from paying fees for their therapies?" and "Has the jurisprudence of the constitutional court made favorable decisions in similar cases?" were posed to ChatGPT. Not only that, but the AI's responses were included in the decision-making process. The Judge notes that the AI responses were used to expand or extend his own decisions, which was also a part of the decision.
There are no laws in Colombia forbidding the use of AI in court decisions. However, it's still strange to see the AI tool used this way when it has come under scrutiny for potentially offering biased or incorrect responses. Even OpenAI has stated that it should not be used for consequential decision-making.
The rise of artificial intelligence is happening right now, and hustlers have already jumped on the bandwagon to push services such as ChatGPT as a way to get rich quick.
OpenAI released ChatGPT to the public in November last year, and since then, the AI has taken the world by storm, going viral on almost every social media platform and making numerous headlines across multiple prominent publications. While the technology behind ChatGPT is limited to its relatively small data set (compared to the data set that is coming in the next iteration of ChatGPT), its capabilities are still very impressive. ChatGPT being openly available has given the power of digital automation to the public, which has led to users suspecting that the emergence of AI will disrupt many industries around the world.
The unquestionable power of AI and the demonstrations provided by ChatGPT has garnered the attention of hustle culture, or people that create content that informs other people on how to make money. The Verge has reported several instances of hustlers claiming that ChatGPT is "one of the craziest softwares I've ever seen on planet Earth, and you can become a millionaire just using ChatGPT, I guarantee you", and "If you start today, you could literally have a million-dollar course creation business by this time next year."
Microsoft is reportedly moving to integrate OpenAI's viral sensation ChatGPT into its very own search engine, Bing.
A student and designer, Owen Yin, took to Twitter on February 4 to reveal screenshots of the new Bing search engine that he says just appeared when he loaded up his Microsoft Edge browser that is set to Bing. Yin says he "didn't do anything to find it," and only after a couple of minutes of him using it stopped working.
The designer explained his experience with the updated Bing in a Medium blog post where he noted that the typical Bing search engine was replaced by a chat box that read "ask it anything!" and allowed the user to enter 1,000 characters or less.
An invite sent to the press has revealed that Google is planning on hosting an event next week that will unveil its work on artificial intelligence and how it will power Google Search.
According to an invitation sent to The Verge, Google will be hosting a 40-minute livestream event on YouTube on February 8 at 8:30 AM ET. The event will cover the use of artificial intelligence and how Google is wielding AI to reimagine how people search for, explore and interact with information on its platform. The company explains that its developments in AI have made it more natural and intuitive than ever before to search for information.
This announcement of a new event appears to be a knee-jerk reaction from Google in response to the mass popularity of OpenAI's viral sensation, ChatGPT. Notably, ChatGPT is being integrated into Microsoft's Bing browser, which may allow Bing to offer more interactive and informative results when queried by a user. This feature of more intelligent summaries may cause Google to lose users, hence its decision to now reveal what its been working on behind closed doors.
Twitter is having a field day after it was discovered that one of Netflix's new pieces of content credited artificial intelligence for its role in the development of the movie.
The new anime is called "Dog and Boy" and is a short film by Netflix Anime Creators Base under an "experimental effort" to address the anime industry's labor shortage, according to a press release posted to Netflix Japan's official website. The short film began production in January 2022, and according to Netflix, the project was to demonstrate the capabilities of AI-generated artwork being used for the background images throughout the video. These background images created by the AI were guided by humans but generated by the AI.
While the story of the short film itself was moving, the fact that Netflix credited artificial intelligence with "+humans" in brackets sparked outrage on Twitter. With many users rallying behind the idea that Netflix has chosen to test out how AI-generated content performs so it can reduce its costs by eventually not paying animators. Additionally, the credits at the end of the short list Rinna Inc, an AI artwork company, and several AI researchers.
