The Rundown: New leaks from internal sources at OpenAI have revealed details for its upcoming GPT-5 model capabilities and launch timeline.

The details:

  • Sources say GPT-5 is "materially better" than its predecessor, and some enterprise customers have allegedly been given demos.

  • OpenAI has also reportedly hinted at GPT-5 gaining the capability to “call AI agents” being developed by the company.

  • The release timeline is tentatively slated for mid-year but could slip based on the progress of ongoing training and safety testing.

Why it matters: The GPT-5 rumblings are growing louder — and the integration of AI agents (which are accelerating fast, if Devin is any indication) would be a big differentiator to swing the power scales back in OpenAI’s favor.

The Rundown: The Biden administration just announced it will provide Intel with a massive $20B package to boost U.S. semiconductor production, marking the largest government AI investment to date.

The details:

  • Intel will receive $8.5B in direct grants and up to $11B in loans to support chip manufacturing projects.

  • The funds will help construct advanced chip factories, expand R&D, and transform plants into cutting-edge packaging sites.

  • Over 30,000 good-paying jobs will be created from this deal alone.

  • The deal also puts the U.S. on track to produce 20% of the world's most advanced AI chips by 2030.

Why it matters: The Intel deal is just the beginning of a wave of expected government funding for the AI sector under the $52.7B CHIPS Act. As the global chip race heats up, all eyes will be on whether this historic bet can help the U.S. keep its edge.

The Rundown: According to a new report by TechCrunch, OpenAI's GPT Store is currently overrun with bizarre, spammy, and legally questionable offerings.

The details:

  • TechCrunch uncovered a slew of bots that blatantly infringe on copyrights, imitating Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars without permission.

  • Many GPTs openly advertise the ability to bypass AI content detection tools to catch cheating/plagiarism, violating OpenAI's ban on academic dishonesty.

  • Some listings also serve as funnels to paid third-party services, using misleading claims to lure in users.

Why it matters: While the GPT Store release was met with a ton of fanfare, its execution so far has been unfortunately lacking. The messy situation doesn’t bode well for the company’s future creator monetization plans for GPTs —  which will likely bring a brand new wave of bad actors looking to cash in.
