What's brewing in AI #16

Dario Chincha
Creator of whatplugin.ai & the What's Brewing in AI newsletter.
October 31, 2023

Welcome to the 811 new subscribers who joined in the last two weeks. Iโ€™m back after a weekโ€™s break โ€“ and โ€“ Iโ€™m delighted that youโ€™re here to learn with me.

Hereโ€™s the top stories in AI this week:

Darioโ€™s Picks

โ€

I. All tools at once in GPT-4

ChatGPT just got a major update:

  • OpenAI is rolling out an update that enables vision, web browsing, DALL-E 3 and advanced data analysis in the same chat.
  • This means you donโ€™t have to go back and forth between these modes any longer and you can combine them. Hereโ€™s some mind-blowing stuff people are already doing with it.
  • The update also highlights the possibility of uploading documents directly in the chat, albeit this has was already possible in the advanced data analysis mode.
  • Plugins are not (at least not yet) part of the All Tools update, and is still accessed separately.

On a side note, some people have been getting responses from ChatGPT that its cut-off date is now September 2023. However, itโ€™s not necessarily true as ChatGPT seems to be confused about when its knowledge ends.

II. Google is throwing $2B at Anthropic

The AI arms race continues, with big tech companies are betting hard on LLMs being components of the most revolutionary future technology. While Google is working hard at developing their own LLMs, they are likely hedging their bets by securing a stake in the potential leaders in the space.

The deal reportedly involved $500M now, and $1.5B later. The timings and conditions for the remaining amount are not clear.

Amazon also invested in Anthropic earlier this year, committing up to $4B in the AI startup.

III. Appleโ€™s new M3 chips are 2.5x faster for AI

The new M3 chips (M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max) have a feature called dynamic caching, which increases the utilization of the GPU. As a result, the new neural engine is way faster and speeds up machine learning.

Translation: If you use or build machine learning apps, Tim Cook could be considered Santa Claus this year, bringing you better tools for the job.

For all the details, watch the Apple Event from October 30.

IV. Googleโ€™s secret new tool: Stubbs

Googleโ€™s current model PaLM 2 is soon going to be replaced by the more powerful, multimodal model Gemini. According to a leak, showcasing some of the potential of Gemini (which is interesting in itself), thereโ€™s also a new tool called Stubbs that reportedly will be available on Google Makersuite.

Stubbs is a tool where you generate apps using natural language. Imagine a tool that creates Figma Prototypes with just a prompt. Thatโ€™s what Stubbs is reportedly able to do!

The leak only mentions that launch date of Stubbs is uncertain and could happen well into 2024.

โ€ˆIn Focusโ€ˆ

On staying techno-optimistic

a16z published an article last week titled The Techno-Optimist Manifesto.

I donโ€™t necessarily agree with all the points made in the article โ€“ it might be glorifying technological advances in themselves a bit too much. But itโ€™s true that technology is what allows us to do more with less. To the extent we direct it towards endeavours that have a positive impact on the world, it functions as a lever that accelerates this impact exponentially.

With this in mind, I choose to be more excited than scared of AI.
