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…
