The company has stated that ChatGPT-Plus will be available starting at $20, making it accessible to a wider range of consumers and businesses. ChatGPT-Plus is a cutting-edge language model that has been developed by OpenAI using the latest in deep learning and natural language processing techniques. The model is designed to understand and respond to natural language queries, just like a human would.

ChatGPT sets record for fastest-growing user base in history, report says


On Wednesday, Reuters reported that AI bot ChatGPT reached an estimated 100 million active monthly users last month, a mere two months from launch, making it the "fastest-growing consumer application in history," according to a UBS investment bank research note. In comparison, TikTok took nine months to reach 100 million monthly users, and Instagram about 2.5 years, according to UBS researcher Lloyd Walmsley. "In 20 years following the Internet space, we cannot recall a faster ramp in a consumer internet app," Reuters quotes Walmsley as writing in the UBS note. Reuters says the UBS data comes from analytics firm Similar Web, which states that around 13 million unique visitors used ChatGPT every day in January, doubling the number of users in December. ChatGPT is a conversational large language model (LLM) that can discuss almost any topic at an almost human level.

Learning by on-line gradient descent - IOPscience


We study on-line gradient-descent learning in multilayer networks analytically and numerically. The training is based on randomly drawn inputs and their corresponding outputs as defined by a target rule. In the thermodynamic limit we derive deterministic differential equations for the order parameters of the problem which allow an exact calculation of the evolution of the generalization error. First we consider a single-layer perceptron with sigmoidal activation function learning a target rule defined by a network of the same architecture. For this model the generalization error decays exponentially with the number of training examples if the learning rate is sufficiently small.

Iran blames Israel for Isfahan drone attack

Al Jazeera

Iran has blamed Israel for last week's drone attack on a military factory near the central city of Isfahan, promising revenge for what appeared to be the latest episode in a long-running covert war. The Iranian claim, carried by the semi-official ISNA news agency on Thursday, corroborates remarks made by United States officials following the attack. The attack came amid tension between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear activity and its supply of arms – including long-range "suicide drones" – for Russia's war in Ukraine, as well as months of anti-government demonstrations at home. In a letter to the United Nations chief, Iran's UN envoy, Amir Saeid Iravani, said "primary investigation suggested Israel was responsible" for Saturday night's attack, which Tehran had said caused no casualties or serious damage. "Iran reserves its legitimate and inherent right to defend its national security and firmly respond to any threat or wrongdoing of the Zionist regime [Israel] wherever and whenever it deems necessary," Iravani said in the letter.

How Google's Search Rival Could Use ChatGPT to Get a Leg Up - CNET


Have you ever found yourself trawling through endless pages of results on a search engine to find the answer to a complex question? Say you want to find out if a vegetarian diet is suitable for your dog. Your research journey might begin by hopping onto Google and typing "is a veg diet good for dogs" into the search box and then having to make sense of the legion of generated links. By the time you find an answer, you've sunk way more time than you'd budgeted into poring through articles, reports and their sources. In the not-so-distant future, finding the answer to a complex question might not be such a tedious, mind-numbing process.

Netflix is getting blasted for using AI art in an anime instead of hiring artists


Netflix is getting thoroughly blasted on social media for using artificial intelligence to make an anime rather than paying actual human artists. Released by Netflix this week, The Dog & The Boy(Opens in a new window) is a three-minute sci-fi anime short about a kid whose robot dog waits for him when he goes off to war. It isn't a unique story(Opens in a new window), but what sets this anime apart is that its background art was generated using AI rather than drawn by humans. According to images shown during The Dog & The Boy's credits, a human would draw a relatively rough layout of what they wanted by hand. This image was then put through an AI art generator a few times, before finally being revised by hand to create the final artwork that was used in the anime.

Seeing is believing? A global scramble to tackle deepfakes

The Japan Times

Washington – Chatbots spouting falsehoods, face-swapping apps crafting porn videos and cloned voices defrauding companies of millions -- the scramble is on to rein in AI deepfakes that have become a misinformation super spreader. Artificial Intelligence is redefining the proverb "seeing is believing," as the deluge of images created out of thin air showing people doing things they have never done and saying things they have never said in real-looking fakes videos proliferates and erodes online trust. This could be due to a conflict with your ad-blocking or security software. Please add and to your list of allowed sites.

Infographic: Generative AI Explained by AI


After years of research, it appears that artificial intelligence (AI) is reaching a sort of tipping point, capturing the imaginations of everyone from students saving time on their essay writing to leaders at the world's largest tech companies. Excitement is building around the possibilities that AI tools unlock, but what exactly these tools are capable of and how they work is still not widely understood. We could write about this in detail, but given how advanced tools like ChatGPT have become, it only seems right to see what generative AI has to say about itself. Everything in the infographic above – from illustrations and icons to the text descriptions --was created using generative AI tools such as Midjourney. Everything that follows in this article was generated using ChatGPT based on specific prompts.

Uses of ChatGPT: 30 incredible ways to use the AI-powered chatbot ChatGPT


So, let's see what you can do with it, shall we? Rather than give you a description of our own, we thought, given the nature of this article, to let ChatGPT answer for itself. "I am a language model developed by OpenAI. I was trained on a diverse range of internet text, including websites, books, and more. This allows me to generate human-like text responses to a wide range of questions and prompts," ChatGPT explains. "My training data encompasses a wide range of topics, so I can converse on many subjects, including but not limited to science, history, mathematics, and current events. However, I am still just a machine, and while I can generate responses that are similar to what a human might say, I do not have thoughts, feelings, or consciousness," it adds.
