USPTO says that AI models can't hold patents, only human beings can

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 15, 2024 7:02 PM CST

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has pushed out new guidance on inventorship for AI-powered inventions, stating that only humans can hold patents.

USPTO says that AI models can't hold patents, only human beings can

The USPTO said that AI systems can help out during the creative process, but only natural persons (human beings) who make significant contributions to the conception of an invention can be named as inventors. This means that AI models can't just pump out patent ideas without considerable human input, stopping patent hoarding by AIs.

An AI model can't be named as an inventor, or even a joint inventor, on a patent. But, an AI helping out in the creation of that invention doesn't mean that the human being working on it can't hold the patent. The USPTO explains: "While AI systems and other non-natural persons cannot be listed as inventors on patent applications or patents, the use of an AI system by a natural person(s) does not preclude a natural person(s) from qualifying as an inventor (or joint inventors) if the natural person(s) significantly contributed to the claimed invention".

ChatGPT finally has a memory feature, will now remember what you've asked the AI

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 14, 2024 9:36 PM CST

OpenAI has just announced it's rolling out a new memory feature into ChatGPT so that the AI chatbot will remember your past conversations, commands, and requests.

ChatGPT finally has a memory feature, will now remember what you've asked the AI

The new memory feature being baked into ChatGPT is coming soon and has been a long time coming. One of my major faults with ChatGPT is that it doesn't remember your conversation, forcing you to re-prompt things. It would be fantastic to remember everything, like an artificial intelligence would... not a limited AI model.

OpenAI explained on its website: "We're testing memory with ChatGPT. Remembering things you discuss across all chats saves you from having to repeat information and makes future conversations more helpful. You're in control of ChatGPT's memory. You can explicitly tell it to remember something, ask it what it remembers, and tell it to forget conversationally or through settings. You can also turn it off entirely. We are rolling out to a small portion of ChatGPT free and Plus users this week to learn how useful it is. We will share plans for broader roll out soon".

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: AI market could be worth $2 trillion in the next 5 years

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 13, 2024 10:35 PM CST

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang made some big statements at the recent World Government Summit recently held in Dubai, where he said AI is the future of economics and that there'll be $2 trillion worth of data centers powering the future of AI.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: AI market could be worth $2 trillion in the next 5 years

Huang added: "We are in the beginning of this new era and what's gonna happen is there's a trillion dollars worth of installed base in data centers around the world and over the course of next 4-5 years, we'll have 2 trillion dollars worth of data centers that will be powering software around the world and all of that is going to be accelerated and this architecture for accelerating computing is ideal for this next generation of software called generative AI".

It's not surprising that Jensen believes the data center market will explode into a gigantic $2 trillion market in the next 4-5 years, which will be the driving force behind the future of everything AI. NVIDIA is leading the pack here, where they're not only commanding an estimated 90% of the AI GPU market, but the company has seen its market capitalization explode over the last few months... adding $650 billion to see NVIDIA with a commanding $1.78 trillion market cap at the time of writing.

Ever wanted to chat to your GPU? NVIDIA's new RTX-powered AI chatbot is fast, local and private

Darren Allan | Feb 13, 2024 11:32 AM CST

NVIDIA's going big on AI - in case you hadn't noticed - and the latest brainwave from Team Green is a new 'Chat with RTX' demo app.

Ever wanted to chat to your GPU? NVIDIA's new RTX-powered AI chatbot is fast, local and private

This software allows you to leverage the power of your RTX graphics card - only RTX 3000 and 4000 GPUs are supported, mind - to run a local chatbot tapping into a large language model (the choices are Mistral and Llama, open source efforts of course).

Then you can use your preferred option, hook it up to some files on your PC, and query this local generative AI, letting it comb through those files for answers to queries.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: data is the new gold, all countries should develop 'Sovereign AI'

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 13, 2024 12:24 AM CST

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang was recently at the World Government Summit in Dubai, where he called for all countries to build their own "sovereign AI."

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: data is the new gold, all countries should develop 'Sovereign AI'

Huang said: "This is the beginning of a new industrial revolution, is about the production -- not of energy, not of food -- but the production of intelligence, and every country needs to own the production of their own intelligence, which is the reason why there's this idea called"sovereign AI".

He continued: "You own your own data. nobody owns it. Your country owns the data; it codifies your culture, your society's intelligence, your common sense, your history. You own your own data. You, therefore, must take that data, refine that data, and own your own national intelligence. You cannot allow that to be done by other people".

HBM prices have skyrocketed by 500% thanks to AI GPU demand, with no signs of slowing down

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 12, 2024 6:57 PM CST

The insatiable demand for AI GPUs and all things AI throughout 2023 has seen HBM memory makers enjoying a gigantic 500% spike in the average selling price of HBM chips. Not bad at all for HBM makers Micron, Samsung, and SK hynix.

HBM prices have skyrocketed by 500% thanks to AI GPU demand, with no signs of slowing down

HBM chips are one of the most important parts of an AI GPU, with the likes of AMD and NVIDIA both using the bleeding edge of HBM memory on their respective AI GPUs. Market research firm Yole Group has now chimed in, predicting that the HBM supply will grow at a compound annual rate of 45% from 2023 to 2028, with HBM prices expected to remain high "for some time," considering how hard it is to scale up HBM production to keep up with the crazy demand.

Samsung and SK hynix are the dominant players in the HBM memory-making business; between the South Korean companies, they have 90% of the HBM market share, leaving Micron with the scraps. SK hynix and TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) are teaming together, so you've got some interesting developments that will continue to roll on as the months (and years) go on.

AI to make AI - NVIDIA's ChipNeMo is an AI model created to accelerate chip production

Kosta Andreadis | Feb 9, 2024 12:31 AM CST

NVIDIA is arguably the leader in creating GPU hardware for AI, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's using AI to accelerate chip design and production. Staying ahead of the game is a part of the picture; NVIDIA is now the world's sixth-largest company thanks to the rise of AI.

AI to make AI - NVIDIA's ChipNeMo is an AI model created to accelerate chip production

NVIDIA's custom LLM (Large Language Model) is called ChipNeMo, adapted from Meta's Llama 2, and is trained on the company's vast amounts of architectural data, documentation, and source code. ChipNeMo was first unveiled in late 2023 and is also used as a tool for training engineers via its chatbot functionality.

According to Bryan Catanzaro, NVIDIA's vice president of applied deep learning research, designing a new GPU takes close to 1,000 people working together. Access to an AI chatbot with all that data is an invaluable tool. The question now becomes, how much - if any - of the design for upcoming GPUs is being designed by ChipNeMo?

US government makes AI-generated phone calls illegal after the Joe Biden fiasco

Jak Connor | Feb 9, 2024 12:16 AM CST

Robocallers have been a problem for many years now, with some individuals receiving more calls than others. But with the power of artificial intelligence (AI), the frequency of these calls has increased and seemingly reached its boiling point when an AI-powered robocaller imitated President Joe Biden.

US government makes AI-generated phone calls illegal after the Joe Biden fiasco

These robocalls are likely familiar to everyone who owns a phone, and with the exponentially increasing power of AI-powered tools, scammers are becoming more and more creative in devising ways to scam individuals out of their hard-earned dollars.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is aware of this issue and was pushed to action when an AI-generated robocall imitating President Joe Biden made headlines as the voice on the end of the line was telling New Hampshire Democrats not to vote for Biden in the upcoming presidential primary.

AI PCs expected to be close to 60% of total PC shipments by 2027 says analyst

Anthony Garreffa | Feb 8, 2024 6:03 PM CST

I think by now we all know that the "AI PC" and AI in general is the future of technology, but we haven't been able to run generative AI tasks locally -- as the likes of ChatGPT is run in the cloud -- but that is slowly changing. The entire PC industry is being dragged into AI whether they like it, or not.

AI PCs expected to be close to 60% of total PC shipments by 2027 says analyst

AMD and Intel both have processors on the market with NPUs (Neural Processing Units) that are dedicated parts of the chip that are built for AI workloads, but you can also use your CPU or GPU to run generative AI tasks, or a combination of them. CPUs and GPUs aren't exactly optimized for AI workloads, which is where the NPU comes in... the faster it gets, the better AI experiences we'll have on future-gen hardware.

Analyst firm IDC is making some predictions to the AI PC market, now that AI processors are here with NPUs inside of them from AMD and Intel.
