GPT-4 users have complained that the OpenAI model is getting 'dumber.' Their findings, published on Tuesday, challenge the assumption that AI models automatically improve. One of the bedrock assumptions of the current artificial intelligence boom is that AI models "learn" and improve over time. This is what users of OpenAI's GPT-4, the world's most-powerful AI model, have been experiencing lately. This recent GPT-4 research paper provides a healthy dose of skepticism to the assumptions that are driving these wild swings in value.

KPMG is betting big on AI — another sign the technology's use is spreading fast. They plan to jointly develop generative AI tools for areas like the supply chain and cybersecurity. Through their tie-up, the companies plan to jointly develop generative AI tools for KPMG's employees and clients, he said. On the cybersecurity defense front, generative AI can help interpret a range of data to provide quicker information about potential threats and how to respond to them. "But generative AI provides a huge head start."

Bill Gates said the winner in AI will be the company that creates a personal digital agent. Gates added that it's 50-50 as to whether the AI winner behind the digital agent will come from Big Tech or the startup world. The startup was founded by LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, Deepmind cofounder Mustafa Suleyman, and Karén Simonyan, and describes itself as an "AI studio creating a personal AI for everyone." And Pi is still a ways away from what Bill Gates is imagining, a personal AI that can do your shopping and help read your emails. But Pi is the best conversational AI I've used so far, and everyone I've spoken to who has used it has been impressed.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates reacts during a visit with Britain's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak of the Imperial College University, in London, Britain, February 15, 2023. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes the future top company in artificial intelligence will likely have created a personal digital agent that can perform certain tasks for people. Gates said there is a fifty-fifty chance that this future AI winner will be either a startup or a tech giant. Until then, companies will continue embedding so-called generative AI technologies akin to OpenAI's popular ChatGPT into their own products. Watch: Bill Gates says OpenAI's GPT is the most important tech advance since the 1980's
Bill Gates told the FT that people try to make AI look stupid but it wasn't a threat to humans. Asked by a Financial Times journalist whether he was worried about AI, Gates said it was "fine, there's no threat." "It's not clear who should be blamed, you know, if you sit there and provoke a bit," Gates told the FT. But according to Gates, the main problem with AI is not the AI itself doing things but the people controlling it. Although he believes AI is set to trigger some labor displacement, it will create more efficiency, he told the FT.
Microsoft is limiting Bing's conversation lengths and interactions with users, per a blog post. It has imposed a limit of 50 chat turns a day and 5 chat turns each session.

Like Microsoft's revamped Bing search engine, Bard is meant to give answers directly within search. The unveiling of its new search chatbot this week is likely to once again raise the question of whether Google is using others' work without fair compensation. The company is incorporating the conversational chatbot technology, known as Bard, into search, first as a small test while the company gathers feedback. Microsoft, which recently announced a multibillion-dollar investment into ChatGPT's creator, OpenAI, similarly intends to incorporate that chatbot into its Bing search engine. Microsoft could face similar headaches as it rolls out its new Bing search engine.

VALL-E can clone someone's voice from a 3-second audio clip and use it to synthesize other words. It came as the tech giant plans to invest $10 billion in OpenAI's writing tool ChatGPT.
