OpenAI launches an API for ChatGPT, plus dedicated capacity for enterprise customers

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

To call ChatGPT, the free text-generating AI developed by San Francisco-based startup OpenAI, a hit is a massive understatement.

As of December, ChatGPT had an estimated more than 100 million monthly active users. It’s attracted major media attention and spawned countless memes on social media. It’s been used to write hundreds of e-books in Amazon’s Kindle store. And it’s credited with co-authoring at least one scientific paper.

But OpenAI, being a business — albeit a capped-profit one — had to monetize ChatGPT somehow, lest investors get antsy. It took a step toward this with the launch of a premium service, ChatGPT Plus, in February. And it made a bigger move today, introducing an API that’ll allow any business to build ChatGPT tech into their apps, websites, products and services.

Posted by in categories: business, Elon Musk, robotics/AI

The business magnet is trying to hire an AI expert who recently left Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

Elon Musk is working on a “new research lab to develop an alternative to ChatGPT,” OpenAI’s chatbot, which he co-founded earlier and later “cut ties” with.

The tech billionaire has reached out to AI researchers in recent weeks to develop a ChatGPT “alternative,” The Information, a technology news website, reported on Monday, citing sources close to the matter.

Posted by in categories: business, computing, education, information science, quantum physics

In an interview with EE Times, Classiq CEO Nir Minerbi said Classiq’s academic program is an essential part of its broader strategy to expand the platform’s reach and promote the quantum computing business.

“We believe that offering this program will give students the tools and knowledge they need to learn practical quantum software-development skills while also providing researchers with a streamlined means of developing advanced quantum computing algorithms capable of taking advantage of ever more powerful quantum hardware,” he said. “In addition, our program enables students and researchers to test, validate and run their quantum programs on real hardware, providing valuable real-world experience. Ultimately, we think that our academic program will have a significant impact on the quantum computing community by promoting education and research in the field—and helping to drive innovation and progress in the industry.”

Classiq and Microsoft are among the top companies developing quantum computing software. The quantum stack developed by the firms advances Microsoft’s vision for quantum programming languages, which was published in the 2020 issue of Nature.

Former Adobe CTO Raises $65 Million To Help Businesses Generate Marketing Content With AI

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

Abhay Parasnis, the former chief technology officer of Adobe, wants to use AI powered by OpenAI, Stable Diffusion and computer vision models to help companies churn out branded content. His startup Typeface, which he launched in June 2022, has now raised $65 million in Series A financing to continue building out its generative AI platform for marketing and communication content such as blog posts, Instagram posts, websites and job postings on LinkedIn.

One of the challenges businesses face, Parasnis says, is that the skills needed for marketing can take years to acquire, which can make finding the right people challenging.

Typeface is a platform trained on ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion models that can generate personalized blogs, Instagram posts and websites for companies.

AI, An Amplifier Of Human Intelligence

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, blockchains, business, education, internet, robotics/AI

I attended Celesta Capital’s TechSurge Summit on February 13, 2023 at the Computer History Museum. In this piece I will talk about interview with Nic Brathwaite Founder and Managing Partner of Celesta Capital as well as Sriram Viswanathan (Founding General Manager of Celesta and heavily involved in venture investments in India), and a panel discussion by John Hennessy (Chairman of Alphabet).

In a companion article I will talk about my interview with John Hennessy, Chairman of Alphabet (Google’s parent company) and Vint Cerf, also with Google, during the TechSurge Summit.

He also said that the current cost of inference is too high and that Chat GBT is too often busy. He thought that there were opportunities to build AI systems trained and focused on particular uses, which would lead to smaller models and they would be more practical. He thought we are 1–2 years away from useful products, particularly in business intelligence. He also said that the use of AI allows us to program with data rather than lots of lines of code. Google was hesitant to produce something like Chat GBT, they didn’t want the system to say wrong or toxic things. He said that the tech industry needs to be more careful to encourage a civil society and that many tools, such as the Internet, were not anticipated to be used to do evil things.
