The generative AI revolution has begun--how did we get here?


Progress in AI systems often feels cyclical. Every few years, computers can suddenly do something they've never been able to do before. "Behold!" the AI true believers proclaim, "the age of artificial general intelligence is at hand!" "Nonsense!" the skeptics say. The truth usually lies somewhere in between. Media headlines are dominated by news about AI art, but there's also unprecedented progress in many widely disparate fields.

Where to Learn Machine Learning in 2023


Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence that involves the development of algorithms and statistical models that allow a computer to learn from data, without being explicitly programmed.

AI lawyer stunt off after CEO threatened with jail • The Register


In brief Joshua Browder, CEO of DoNotPay, made headlines for claiming an AI chatbot was due to defend a man in an upcoming court hearing, but has pulled out of the stunt. Browder runs a consumer rights startup that was originally built to help people appeal parking tickets more easily, and has since grown with the aim of building "the world's first robot lawyer." He wanted to show AI could replace expensive human lawyers, using language models to form legal arguments. Earlier this month he claimed to have convinced a man to wear headphones during a court case and recite the output of an AI chatbot in a court hearing scheduled to take place over Zoom. But his behavior caught the attention of prosecutors irked by his reckless antics.

OpenAI launches ChatGPT Plus, starting at $20 per month • TechCrunch


Aiming to monetize what's become a viral phenomenon, OpenAI today launched a new pilot subscription plan for ChatGPT, its text-generating AI that can write convincingly human-like essays, poems, emails, lyrics and more. Called ChatGPT Plus and starting at $20 per month, the service delivers a number of benefits over the base-level ChatGPT, OpenAI says, including general access to ChatGPT even during peak times, faster response times and priority access to new features and improvements. The free ChatGPT tier is here to stay -- it's not going away. OpenAI says it'll begin the process of inviting people from its waitlist in the coming months and look to expand Plus to additional countries and regions "soon." "We launched ChatGPT as a research preview so we could learn more about the system's strengths and weaknesses and gather user feedback to help us improve upon its limitations," OpenAI wrote in a blog post.

ChatGPT and its impact on SEO


ChatGPT, which stands for Generative Pre-training Transformer, is an advanced language model developed by OpenAI. This model has the ability to generate natural language text that is almost indistinguishable from text written by a human. In recent years, ChatGPT has become a popular tool for natural language processing (NLP) tasks, including text generation, language translation, and sentiment analysis. However, one area that ChatGPT has not been widely discussed in is search engine optimization (SEO). In this article, we will explore the potential impact of ChatGPT on SEO and how it can be utilized to improve the performance of a website.

Measures Proposed In Budget 2023 To Unleash The Potential Of The Economy - AI Summary


The budget speech by Nirmala Sitharaman focused on a number of measures to boost the economy and empower the youth. Among these measures, the setting up of Centres of Excellence for Artificial Intelligence is a noteworthy move. These centres will partner with leading industry players to conduct interdisciplinary research and develop cutting-edge applications in areas like agriculture, health and sustainable cities. The National Data Governance Policy will enable anonymised data and the process will be simplified by adopting a risk-based system. The government has also launched an integrated online training platform to provide continuous learning opportunities for millions of government employees to upgrade their skills and facilitate people-centric approach. The digital ecosystem for skilling will be further expanded with the launch of a unified skill India digital platform. These initiatives will go a long way in making India a global leader in AI and other emerging technologies.

Statement by National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on the New U.S.-EU Artificial Intelligence Collaboration


Today, the United States and the European Union signed an administrative arrangement to bring together experts from across the U.S. and Europe to further research on artificial intelligence (AI), computing, and related privacy protecting technologies, as underscored in the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC) commitment. This collaborative effort will drive responsible advancements in AI to address major global challenges with a joint development model and integrated research to deliver benefits to our societies through five key areas of focus: Extreme Weather and Climate Forecasting, Emergency Response Management, Health and Medicine Improvements, Electric Grid Optimization, and Agriculture Optimization. Together, we are confident the results of our research will extend beyond our partnership to benefit additional international partners and the global science community. Today's announcement also builds on the vision set forth in the Declaration for the Future of the Internet (DFI) for an open, free, reliable, and secure Internet and digital technologies around the world. We look forward to deepening our cooperation with the EU through this initiative.

Colombian judge says he used ChatGPT in ruling

The Guardian

A judge in Colombia has caused a stir by admitting he used the artificial intelligence tool ChatGPT when deciding whether an autistic child's insurance should cover all of the costs of his medical treatment. He also used precedent from previous rulings to support his decision. Juan Manuel Padilla, a judge in the Caribbean city of Cartagena, concluded that the entirety child's medical expenses and transport costs should be paid by his medical plan as his parents could not afford them. While the judgment itself did not cause much fuss, the inclusion of Padilla's conversations with ChatGPT in the ruling has been more contentious. Among Padilla's inquiries with the chatbot, the legal documents show Padilla asked ChatGPT the precise legal matter at hand: "Is an autistic minor exonerated from paying fees for their therapies?"

The Essential Guide to AI Training Data


AI training data can make or break your machine learning project. With data as the foundation, decisions on how much or how little data to use, methods of collection and annotation and efforts to avoid bias will directly impact the results of your machine learning models. In this guide, we address these and other fundamental considerations when embarking on an AI data project.
