Big Takeaway: Google has launched a new family of lightweight open-weight models named Gemma, starting with Gemma 2B and Gemma 7B, inspired by its Gemini models.

  • Unlike traditional open-source models, Gemma models are described as "open models," indicating developers can use them for inferencing and fine-tuning.

  • Google claims that Gemma models significantly outperform larger models on key benchmarks. (See above picture) Both the Gemma and Gemini models can be run locally on computers.

  • Google is offering $300 in free credits for first-time Google Cloud customers to use Gemma and up to $500,000 for researchers to advance their projects.

Big Takeaway: Hundreds in the AI community have signed an open letter urging strict regulation of AI-generated deepfakes. (You can add your signature here)

  • The letter calls for the full criminalization of deepfake child sexual abuse materials (CSAM), demanding criminal penalties for creating or spreading harmful deepfakes.

  • Notable signatories include Andrew Yang and Yoshua Bengio, among hundreds of global academics and professionals from various disciplines.

  • So far there have been a few signatories from OpenAI and Google but none from Anthropic, Amazon, Apple, or Microsoft.
