ChatGPT3 — Let The Generative AI Revolution Begin

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

ChatGPT3 became the newest internet sensation last year when it allows users to generate text and answer complex questions in a manner that seems almost human. But, beyond the prowess of ChatGPT3, the underlying impact of the technology — generative AI — on business is only just coming into focus.

ChatGPT3, together with its image-generating cousin Dall-E, has the potential to revolutionize the way content is created, from blogs to white papers, student essays to business correspondence. It provides access to expert-level syntax and grammar to anyone who uses it. But this also raises some important ethical questions.

This is not the first time that technology has captured the attention of the public. IBM Watson made headlines in 2011 when it won the television game show Jeopardy! and Amazon’s AMZN virtual assistant, Alexa, has been answering questions through smart speakers since its commercial debut in 2014.

Ten Tech Trends For 2023

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, economics, quantum physics, robotics/AI

This past year, global attention has been focused on geo-strategic issues, such as the devastating war in Ukraine, which has dislocated many and caused immense suffering. Attention has also been focused on the recovery from the COVID pandemic, which was the overriding concern over the past three years. And finally, the economic destruction wrought by rapidly ramped interest rates which have targeted all sectors of the economy, particularly technology. But despite all this negativity, the business of building the future continues. There has been progress across major axes of computing, from visualization to AI and new types of processors (quantum).


With immense progress in technology, what might we look forward to in 2023?

It would amend a section of New York’s agriculture law that deals with hemp economic development, mandating that the agriculture commissioner consult with additional partners on ways to incorporate hemp products into business operations throughout the state.
