2.How AI rises?
The adoption has escalated over the past week: Anthropic Claude now powers Notion AI and DuckDuckGo, while OpenAI’s GPT-4 powers services from Stripe, Khan Academy, Morgan Stanley, and Duolingo. In fact, the OpenAI publication describes continuing language preservation initiatives with the Icelandic government. In the meantime, Poe, a chatbot service from the online Q&A community Quora, was released. Its backend features both Anthropic and OpenAI models.
3.Why gold rsuh is important?
A tremendous flood of funds following Microsoft’s $10 billion investment in OpenAI is what’s supporting all this current interest. A “gold rush” for foundation model firms has been characterised in recent months as they take advantage of the need for generative AI and exorbitant valuations. Adept raised $350 million, Google invested another $300 million in Anthropic, Character AI received $200 million from Andreesen Horowitz, Perplexity received $25 million, and Salesforce Ventures unveiled a $250 million fund, to name just a few notable transactions.
The U.K. has announced plans to establish a task group on foundation models that would report directly to the prime minister, followed by an immediate investment of £900 million in an exascale supercomputer. According to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, “Foundation models, like ChatGPT, are starting to show off some amazing new skills. It is now the way things are. Now there is a worldwide competition to develop, refine, and use these new technologies.”
