Welcome, AI enthusiasts.
The Pentagon is reportedly racing towards autonomous and expendable AI weapons systems, despite experts warning the risky tech may not be ready.
With lethal AI weapons coming very soon — how scared should we be right now? Let’s investigate…

The Rundown: The Pentagon is reportedly rushing “Replicator,” a new initiative to develop of thousands of lethal, autonomous drones and systems by 2026 — to keep pace with China.
The U.S. military’s "Replicator" initiative seeks rapid expansion of expendable AI attack and defense drones.
Officials claim humans will remain "in control," but experts see the inevitability of full autonomy within years.
Concerns also remain that the pace of AI development may outpace the military’s ability to rigorously test systems before deploying them.
The relevance: Lethal and autonomous in the same sentence is a frightening prospect — and one that needs serious oversight. The advancement of AI in warfare is likely to pose some major moral arguments in the VERY near future.

The Rundown: While many are calling for a slowdown in AI development for safety concerns, NVIDIA founder Jensen Huang is arguing for acceleration — which he believes can unlock new technologies for understanding risks and guardrails.
Huang believes improving AI will provide more tools to make models safer over time, just as auto safety increased with tech advances.
He cited OpenAI's use of reinforcement learning from human feedback as an example of developing oversight tech.
Huang also thinks existing regulations can handle emerging AI apps — with different agencies overseeing implementations.
What this means: Jensen Huang believes by advancing AI, we can potentially develop more effective safety measures by using the tech itself. However, it’s not surprising to see the kingmaker of the AI chip world advocate for increased development.

In our previous newsletter, we hosted a poll on OpenAI’s new custom GPTs and received thousands of responses that you needed a tutorial to get started.
Here’s a very simple guide to get started on building your own custom GPT from natural language (we will release more advanced guides shortly):
Step 1: You can only access GPT Builder if you have ChatGPT Plus. Start by clicking the Explore tab, then "Create a GPT".
Step 2: Before adding custom instructions in the "Configure" tab, simply talk with ChatGPT conversationally to describe what you’d like to build to get a draft.
Step 3: Now that the basic drafts are done, click configure and optimize the GPT. For example, try uploading a file such as a spreadsheet to add data to your GPT to train it on.
Step 4: Chat with your GPT and you can see how well it follows instructions. If it doesn’t go as planned, simply chat with it about what you want it to do better.
Remember, these are the early days of the GPT Builder. If predictions come true and the new GPT Builder Shop (coming soon) becomes the new App Store of AI, you will have a huge headstart over others in the new GPT wave.
Vladimir Putin warned that the West can't monopolize AI during a Russian conference on Friday, vowing that Russia will boost funding and ambitions to close the AI gap between the country and the US and China.
Spanish AI model ‘Aitana’ is being hailed as Spain’s ‘first AI influencer’, reportedly earning up to $10,000 a month. Created by ad agency “The Clueless”, the model has cashed in with brand deals and accumulated 121k followers on IG since making her debut over the summer.
Nvidia is reportedly pushing the launch of its new H20 chip back until Q1 of 2024, due to issues from server manufacturers with integrating it. The H20 is the most powerful of three new China-focused chips aimed to adhere to U.S. export restrictions.
