Welcome, AI enthusiasts.
Bill Gates is pumping the brakes on inflated AI expectations — arguing systems like GPT are ‘plateauing’.
But with rapid advances, is the billionaire misjudging how far the technology still has to climb? Let’s dig in…
📉 Gates doesn't expect major GPT-5 leap
🏥 Study: AI chatbots spread racist medical myths

The Rundown: Despite the current AI boom, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes systems like GPT have likely reached a plateau for now, according to an interview with German business outlet Handelsblatt.
Gates believes GPT-5 won't represent a significant capability increase over GPT-4, despite OpenAI's predictions to the contrary.
He points to the massive jump from GPT-2 to GPT-3/4 as hard to repeat, calling it an incredible advancement unlikely to be topped soon.
But he does see potential for real-world impact if costs and error rates are reduced within 2-5 years — but thinks achieving truly understandable AI models may take a decade or more of research.
Our thoughts: Growth can't be exponential forever — but we’ll have to kindly disagree with Gates here. Given OpenAI’s comments and the current landscape, there is still plenty of room for improvement before a so-called ‘peak.’

The Rundown: A new study found that major AI chatbots like ChatGPT and Google's Bard are prone to spreading false or debunked medical info when asked certain race-related questions.
Researchers asked the chatbots 9 questions on race and medicine - with all four models giving concerning and inaccurate responses.
The chatbots appeared to use outdated, debunked race-based formulas for calculating things like kidney function and lung capacity.
The findings could potentially worsen health disparities if used in clinical settings without oversight.
The relevance: The study highlights a major issue — bias and misinformation in AI systems. As the tech gets further integrated into the medical field, oversight and auditing of data will be important to prevent situations like this.

QR codes are back in style — and now you can make yours stand out with some slick animation powered by DALL-E 3. Follow the steps below:
Craft frame prompts: Describe decorative frames tailored to your brand. Ex: "Design an AI-marketing themed square frame for our QR code, ensuring it remains scannable."
Generate 8+ variations: You’ll need eight images to make a GIF, but DALL-E only generates four at a time. Type "Regenerate" to create multiple options, and download eight or more of your favorites.
Create QR codes: Prompt ChatGPT to generate QR codes linking to your site/content using the Advanced Data Analysis feature. Prompt: “Create 8 QR codes 400x400px with a box size of 40 pointing to the website below. Each should be a different shade of dark primary color. Website: therundown.ai”
Combine frames and codes: Upload your DALL-E frames and have ChatGPT overlay the QR codes. Prompt: ”Sequentially add 1 QR code to the center of each of these images. Then, create an animated gif with a frame duration of .5s each.”
Export as an animated GIF: Download your dynamic, on-brand QR code for scanning!
