Where Is Tech Going in 2023?

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI, security

A group of McKinsey’s technology practice leaders have taken a look at what 2023 might hold, and offer a few new year’s tech resolutions to consider: 1) Look for combinatorial trends, in which the sum impact of new technologies create new opportunities. 2) Prep boards for tipping point technologies. 3) Relieve the bureaucratic burden on your engineers to increase their productivity. 4) Look for new opportunities in the cloud. 5) Take advantage of how the cloud is changing security. 6) Take advantage of decentralized AI capabilities — and what this technology might mean for your business model.

Musk also teased that new products are under development, which presumably could be a new car model. Wall Street analysts expect a lower-cost EV that they have dubbed the “Model 2.”

“I should also say that we have other products in development. We’re not going to announce them obviously but they’re very exciting and I think we’ll blow people’s minds when we reveal them,” Musk said.

Other areas of growth for the company include Tesla insurance, which is currently at an annual premium run rate of $300 million. “We’re growing 20% a quarter so it’s growing faster than the growth in our vehicle business,” CFO Zachary Kirkhorn said.

Amazon employees are already using ChatGPT for software coding. They also found the AI chatbot can answer tricky AWS customer questions and write cloud training materials

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

Amazon employees are quickly discovering ChatGPT’s vast potential as a work assistant.

ChatGPT, the eerily intelligent chatbot that blew up since its November release, has been used in a number of different job functions at Amazon, according to internal Slack messages obtained by Insider. That includes answering job interview questions, writing software code, and creating training documents, as Insider previously reported.

One employee said in the Slack channel that the Amazon Web Services cloud unit has created a small working group to better understand AI’s impact on its business. Through testing, this team found ChatGPT does a “very good job” at answering AWS customer support questions, as most answers are based on public information. The AI tool was also “great” at creating training documents and “very strong” in corporate strategy questions.

If the proposed legislation is successful, Arizona will become the first state in the United States to officially recognize Bitcoin as a legal currency. This would have significant implications for the use and acceptance of bitcoin within the state. Not only would individuals and businesses be able to use bitcoin to pay debts, taxes, and other financial obligations, but state agencies would also be able to accept it as payment.

Why are so many tech companies laying people off right now?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business

Didn’t they just have record-breaking profits?

There’s an eerie similarity to the statements tech companies have made about their recent layoffs. Mainly, if the press releases are to be believed, the C-suite of every Big Tech company on Earth — well, with the notable exception of Apple, which has not announced layoffs — figured no one would ever go outside or spend money offline again after the pandemic and their various online businesses would stay just as big as they were during the heights of covid.

I do love a heavily lawyered statement that was clearly written by the public relations department! In fact, these are all so similar that they might as well have come from the same PR person… More.
