What exactly is AGI that Sam Altman mentioned this week? ๐Ÿค” 

When we talk about AGI, we're referring to Artificial General Intelligence. Essentially, it's creating an AI system with more generalized intelligence capabilities, similar to humans. Think of AGI as a super clever computer program that could be your buddy - one that's not limited to a single task but can learn, adapt, and understand many different things, just like you and me.

Scientists and engineers worldwide are working towards developing an AI with broader capabilities.

Sam Altman: GPT-5 and GPT-6 will enhance reliability but will remain short of AGI
At an event on Monday, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman stated that GPT-5 and GPT-6 will offer improved reliability, personalization, and multimodal outputs but will still fall far short of AGI, according to at least two event attendees, who shared their accounts of the event on X (formerly Twitter).

Will you be rocking AI wearables soon? ๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ

We'll likely see AI integration into wearables and everyday devices. With tech titans like Meta and Microsoft revealing products like smart glasses and bags with AI assistants built in, they're pushing towards making AI more affordable and accessible in day-to-day life. 

OpenAI's reported iPhone of AI venture with backing from Softbank shows the ambition to completely reimagine how we interact with AI beyond just using screens and keyboards. The goal is to develop devices and modes of interaction designed from the ground up with AI capabilities in mind.

So get ready - intelligent wearables and other AI-enabled gadgets are likely coming to a store near you! The applications could be game-changing once the user experience is refined.

Can chatbots give current info or just old news? ๐Ÿ”

Originally, chatbots like ChatGPT were trained on massive but static datasets scraped from the internet - think old Wikipedia pages, Reddit threads, and tweets. Thus, the chatbots excelled at discussing historical information in their training data but couldn't provide up-to-date info on current events.

However, ChatGPT's developers have now allowed it to browse the web. What does it mean for users?

  • The browsing feature will let you find real-time information on the internet.
  • Answers will now come with direct links to sources.
  • Answers are no longer limited to the previous cut-off date of Sep 2021.

OpenAI says this "Browse with Bing" feature will soon roll out to all ChatGPT users. So chatbots are rapidly overcoming their initial limitations and becoming capable of true back-and-forth conversation about our ever-changing world!

That concludes our latest whirlwind tour through the fascinating landscape of AI innovation. Thanks for joining us - I am looking forward to unraveling more AI mysteries with you next week! ๐Ÿค–
