OpenAI is planning to launch its first open-sourced language model to the public, as first reported by The Information.
While most AI companies or “wrappers” are built on OpenAI’s GPT, open-source AI models have managed to come impressively close in performance while also being more cost-effective to train.
This could potentially compel Google to respond similarly, marking a significant victory for the open-source AI movement.
The spotlight is currently on Bard and ChatGPT, but the rise of open-source AI is noteworthy. It's not just a passing trend but a steadily growing force set to impact the future of artificial intelligence substantially.
Researchers at the University of Alberta are developing a machine-learning model, accessible potentially through your smartphone, that can detect early signs of Alzheimer's dementia.
The results are already impressive, with the model detecting 70-75% accuracy between Alzheimer’s patients and healthy individuals.
This tool has the potential to encourage early treatment, slow the progression of the disease, and enhance telehealth services by overcoming linguistic or geographic barriers.
While we all talk about how AI is a massive threat to human civilization, it’s also important to note AI's remarkable strides in healthcare technology.
As suggested by this recent job posting, Amazon appears to be the latest tech giant diving into the AI revolution. The company hinted at revolutionizing Amazon Search with a new "interactive conversational experience."
A compelling quote from the job posting compares this opportunity to the digital revolution of the 90s— "If you missed the 90s—WWW, Mosaic, and the founding of Amazon and Google—you don’t want to miss this opportunity." This indicates that Amazon views these changes as potentially groundbreaking.
While the exact release date remains unknown, given the swift advancements in AI recently showcased by Google, Amazon is likely rushing to get into the AI frenzy as soon as possible.
