Winners and losers in the fulfilment of national artificial intelligence aspirations


The quest for national AI success has electrified the world--at last count, 44 countries have entered the race by creating their own national AI strategic plan. While the inclusion of countries like China, India, and the U.S. are expected, unexpected countries, including Uganda, Armenia, and Latvia, have also drafted national plans in hopes of realizing the promise. Our earlier posts, entitled "How different countries view artificial intelligence" and "Analyzing artificial intelligence plans in 34 countries" detailed how countries are approaching national AI plans, as well as how to interpret those plans. In this piece, we go a step further by examining indicators of future AI needs. Clearly, having a national AI plan is a necessary but not sufficient condition to achieve the goals of the various AI plans circulating around the world; 44 countries currently have such plans. In previous posts, we noted how AI plans were largely aspirational, and that moving from this aspiration to successful implementation required substantial public-private investments and efforts.

JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Forty percent of all products coming into the United States of America on the West Coast go through Los Angeles and -- what am I doing here? COOPER: Do you have plans to visit the southern border? BIDEN: I've been there before and I haven't -- I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But what you see is wages are actually up. I have the freedom to kill you. My guess is you'll start to see gas prices come down as we get by -- and going into the winter. I mean, excuse me, and then next year in 2022. I must tell you, I don't have a near-term answer. Well, that was the opposite of comforting. It seems his only strategy is to deflect from our current misery to promising more misery.

GPT-3 Scared You? Meet Wu Dao 2.0: A Monster of 1.75 Trillion Parameters


Jack Clark, OpenAI's policy director, calls this trend of copying GPT-3, "model diffusion." Yet, among all the copies, Wu Dao 2.0 holds the record of being the largest of all with a striking 1.75 trillion parameters (10x GPT-3). Coco Feng reported for South China Morning Post that Wu Dao 2.0 was trained on 4.9TB of high-quality text and image data, which makes GPT-3's training dataset (570GB) pale in comparison. Yet, it's worth noting OpenAI researchers curated 45TB of data to extract clean those 570GB. It can learn from text and images and tackle tasks that include both types of data (something GPT-3 can't do).
