AI HIGHLIGHTS - 2023

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been an increasingly popular topic in recent years, with new developments and innovations constantly emerging. Here are some of the latest news stories related to AI:

 

  • Google AI introduces LaMDA, a new language model that can hold open-ended conversations. LaMDA is a factual language model from Google AI, trained on a massive dataset of text and code. It can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way.

  • OpenAI's Five AI system beats top human Dota 2 players in a best-of-five series. This is the first time that an AI system has beaten top human players at a complex multiplayer game. OpenAI's Dactyl is a new robot hand that can play table tennis at a world-class level. This is a major breakthrough for the field of robotics, and it could lead to the development of robots that can perform a wide variety of tasks.GPT-4 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4) is an AI language model developed by OpenAI, which has garnered a lot of attention in the past year. It is a neural network that is capable of generating human-like text and has been used in a wide variety of applications, such as chatbots and content creation. Some experts have raised concerns about the ethical implications of GPT-4's language generation capabilities, while others believe it has the potential to revolutionize the way we communicate.

  • DeepMind's AlphaFold2 protein folding model achieves unprecedented accuracy. DeepMind's AlphaFold2 protein folding model has achieved unprecedented accuracy in predicting the structure of proteins. This could lead to new breakthroughs in drug discovery and other areas of biology.

  • IBM's Watson Health AI system helps detect cancer in medical images. IBM's Watson Health AI system has been shown to be effective in detecting cancer in medical images. This could lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment of cancer. IBM's AI's PaGAN, can generate realistic human faces from text descriptions. This could be used to create fake news and propaganda, or it could be used to create new forms of art and entertainment.

  • Microsoft announced a new AI-powered search engine called "Your Copilot." Your Copilot is designed to help users find information on the web more quickly and easily. It does this by using AI to predict what users are looking for, even before they finish typing. Microsoft's Azure AI platform helps businesses adopt AI more easily. Microsoft's AI's Neural Machine Translation, can translate languages in real time with near-human accuracy. This could revolutionize the way we communicate with people from other cultures.

  • The White House announced a series of initiatives to promote "responsible" AI innovation. These initiatives include investing $140 million in AI research, issuing new guidance on the use of AI by the federal government, and requiring AI developers to have their products evaluated at the upcoming DEF CON cybersecurity conference.

  • U.S. sanctions are spurring Chinese tech companies to accelerate research to develop cutting-edge artificial intelligence without relying on the latest American chips.Chinese companies such as Alibaba and Baidu, which stockpiled A100s before the sanctions, have heavily restricted the use of foreign advanced chips internally, reserving them for the most computationally intensive tasks. Baidu pooled A100s for the development of its ChatGPT equivalent, Ernie Bot.​
