Bank of America Obsessed With AI, Says It’s the “New Electricity”

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

The financial industry’s response to artificial intelligence has been all over the place. Now, Bank of America is weighing in very much on the side of the bots.

In a note to clients viewed by CNBC and other outlets, BofA equity strategist Haim Israel boasted that AI was one of its top trends to watch — and invest in — for the year, and used all kinds of hypey language to convince its clients.

“We are at a defining moment — like the internet in the ’90s — where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is moving towards mass adoption,” the client note reads, “with large language models like ChatGPT finally enabling us to fully capitalize on the data revolution.”

The Neuroscience of Creativity, Perception, and Confirmation Bias.

To ensure your survival, your brain evolved to avoid one thing: uncertainty. As neuroscientist Beau Lotto points out, if your ancestors wondered for too long whether that noise was a predator or not, you wouldn’t be here right now. Our brains are geared to make fast assumptions, and questioning them in many cases quite literally equates to death. No wonder we’re so hardwired for confirmation bias. No wonder we’d rather stick to the status quo than risk the uncertainty of a better political model, a fairer financial system, or a healthier relationship pattern. But here’s the catch: as our brains evolved toward certainty, we simultaneously evolved away from creativity—that’s no coincidence; creativity starts with a question, with uncertainty, not with a cut and dried answer. To be creative, we have to unlearn millions of years of evolution. Creativity asks us to do that which is hardest: to question our assumptions, to doubt what we believe to be true. That is the only way to see differently. And if you think creativity is a chaotic and wild force, think again, says Beau Lotto. It just looks that way from the outside. The brain cannot make great leaps, it can only move linearly through mental possibilities. When a creative person forges a connection between two things that are, to your mind, so far apart, that’s a case of high-level logic. They have moved through steps that are invisible to you, perhaps because they are more open-minded and well-practiced in questioning their assumptions. Creativity, it seems, is another (highly sophisticated) form of logic. Beau Lotto is the author of Deviate: The Science of Seeing Differently.

Figure promises the first commercially viable general-purpose humanoid robot

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, finance, robotics/AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is unarguably the most exciting field in robotics. And humanoid robots, robots resembling the human body in shape, are one of the most popular forms of AI. However, a lot of work, finances, and research are put into making these humanoid robots.

The field is already crowded with a number of companies with interesting projects, such as Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot and Tesla’s much-hyped Optimus prototype designed to be “general purpose.”

This week, an AI Robotics startup, Figure, has unveiled Figure 1, the world’s first commercially viable general-purpose humanoid robot. The company says this humanoid will have the ability to think, learn, and interact with its environment.

Will ChatGPT Take Away IT Coding Jobs? Narayana Murthy Answers Here

Posted by in categories: business, cryptocurrencies, employment, finance, transportation

‘Losing jobs to ChatGPT will never happen. The human mind is the most flexible instrument — so what you should do is, use ChatGPT as the base and then show your creativity!’ says Infosys Founder NR Narayana Murthy on whether ChatGPT is likely to take away coders’ jobs. Speaking to the press on the sidelines of the Nasscom Technology and Leadership Forum, Narayan Murthy said, “In 1977–78 there was a thing called program generators. Everybody said the youngsters will lose all jobs, it didn’t happen… The human mind is the most flexible instrument. It can adapt very well. And all that happened was people start solving bigger and bigger problems, which these program generators could not handle.” Murthy said that ChatGPT is good and one should welcome it…

Quantum Computing: The Next Frontier Or A Hype-Filled Bubble?

Posted by in categories: encryption, finance, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Founder of Intellisystem Technologies. Scientific researcher and professor at eCampus University. NASA Genelab AWG AI/ML member.

Quantum computing is a new approach founded on quantum mechanics principles to perform calculations. Unlike classical computers, which store information in bits (either 0 or 1), quantum computers use quantum bits or “qubits” that can exist in multiple states simultaneously. This physics property allows quantum computers to perform specific calculations much faster than classical computers.

The potential applications of quantum computing are vast and include fields such as cryptography, finance and drug discovery. It promises to transform multiple industries and tackle challenges that classical computers cannot solve.

Elon Musk says remaining Twitter employees will receive “very significant” stock awards on March 24th

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, finance, space travel

“This past week, we completed a difficult organizational overhaul focused on improving future execution, using as much feedback as we could gather from the entire company,” Musk wrote. “Those who remain are highly regarded by those around them.”

The short memo, titled “Performance Awards,” is Musk’s first communication to Twitter employees since he laid off hundreds more of them, including several senior loyalists and nearly all of the product team without warning over the weekend. (Platformer’s Zoë Schiffer first tweeted about the memo.)

After several rounds of cuts and demanding that employees be “extremely hardcore,” Musk hasn’t yet shared details about how he will make up for the stock awards that went away when he took Twitter private. In previous internal comments, he has alluded to the system he set up at SpaceX to let employees regularly sell the company’s stock to interested investors. Given Twitter’s distressed financial situation relative to SpaceX, it’s unclear what the appetite for its stock will be in the short term.

AI Startups Boom In San Francisco Amid $100 Billion Google Mistake

Posted by in categories: economics, finance, robotics/AI

On stage in front of packed rooms, at lavish private venture capital dinners and over casual games of ping pong, San Francisco’s AI startup scene is blowing up. With tens of thousands of laid off software engineers with time to tinker, glistening empty buildings beckoning them to start something new, and billions of dollars in idle cash in need of investing, it’s no surprise that just weeks after viral AI companion ChatGPT made its jaw-dropping debut on Nov. 30, one of the smartest cities in the world would pick generative AI as the driver of its next economic boom.

San Francisco’s AI startup scene is blowing up thanks to the ChatGPT craze and backing from investors like Y Combinator, Bessemer, Coatue, Andreessen Horowitz, Tiger Global, Mark Benioff’s Time Ventures and Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures. Meet the players who are shaking up the tech mecca.

Titanosaur: ‘World’s largest dinosaur’ found in Patagonia

Posted by in category: finance

The skeleton cast of a Titanosaur is now on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The 122-foot (37-meter) dinosaur skeleton is too long to fit in the exhibition hall, so its neck and head poke out toward the elevator banks, offering a surprise greeting when the doors open.
