SambaNova, AI Startup Releases Language Model Tool

Palo Alto–based AI firm, SambaNova Systems, revealed a new language service model with a similar name: GPT, which stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformerbut has no ties to OpenAI’s GPT family of language models. SambaNova positions it’s GPT as a more affordable alternative to OpenAI’s GPT-3, claiming in a press release that it would allow businesses…

OpenAI Unveils the Power to Summarize Books

OpenAI has created an AI model capable of summarising books of any length. The model, a refined version of the research lab’s GPT-3, works by first summarising tiny portions of a book and then summarising those summaries into higher-level summaries, following a methodology OpenAI refers to as “recursive task decomposition.” Summarizing book-length texts may be…

Could ‘multi-skilled’ AI chart a path to human-like intelligence?

The subject of artificial intelligence (AI) is rife with buzzwords. Ideally, words such as cognitive computing and big data aid in the distillation of complicated concepts into easily consumable notions. They can, however, confuse and mislead the audience. For example, the term “artificial general intelligence” (AGI) is frequently used to describe hypothetical computers that can…

DeepMind Say Reinforcement Learning is the Way to Mastering General AI

DeepMind in a new paper argue that reinforcement learning is the way to mastering general AI. In other words, it is not just the sum of all the individual decisions that matters, but their interplay that ultimately makes the difference. In an effort to recreate true intelligence, computer scientists have designed and built the many…

OpenAI Creating Ways for GPT-3 Less Toxic Without Needing Universal Values

“GPT-3” is a “language model” that generates text/sentences and is notorious for toxicity. – They have created a technique to refine the model by “tuning” to a small, curated data-set of specific values to reduce the toxicity. This new technique is altering the AI language model behaviour by fine-tuning on a small, curated dataset of…

AI’s Fallibilities Cast Doubt Over the Reliance on the Technology

AI’s Fallibilities Cast Doubt Over the Reliance on the Technology

The technology industry is constantly looking to push AI in their new products and services. AI that can predict users’ preferences, learn from their behaviors and enhance their lives is the area that they are particularly keen to exploit. However, there is mounting evidence that the technology has been unable to deliver on their expectations…

Google To Push Its Tensor Processing Unit AI Engine

Google To Push Its Tensor Processing Unit AI Engine

Powerful AI is particularly needed for training the large neural networks that run the prediction systems and natural language processing integral to digital commerce today. Google previewed Tensor Processing Unit version 4 (TPUv4) abilities in that area last year when it bench-marked three systems in MLPerf’s v0.7 training set, which was released in July 2020….
