The venue is also home to the Vegas Loop, where I rode in a Tesla to other parts of the center via the neon-lit tunnels.

In its announcement of Altman’s firing, OpenAI claimed that Altman had been insufficiently “candid” with the board.

The German share price index DAX graph is pictured at the stock exchange in Frankfurt, Germany, November 20, 2023. The dollar index , which measures the U.S. currency against six of its peers, fell to its lowest since Aug. 31. A Reuters poll showed analysts expect the index to continue its more-than-28% rally this year into 2024 to reach a three-decade high of 35,000 by end-June. With the economic calendar bare in Europe, the rally may fizzle out although futures indicate European stock markets are set for a slightly higher open. The spotlight will shine bright on earnings from artificial intelligence chip leader Nvidia (NVDA.O), with expectation of another blockbuster revenue forecast.
