🚨 Breaking AI News 🚨
Big Takeaway: According to Reuters, before Altman's firing, OpenAI researchers warned the board of a powerful AI discovery that could threaten humanity.
The discovery, an algorithm called Q*, “solved basic math,” making researchers very optimistic about its future capabilities.
Math mastery implies improved reasoning, with applications like scientific research or artificial general intelligence.
Researchers flagged the prowess and potential danger of Q* without specifying exact concerns. Altman had advertised major advances on the frontier of discovery in AI just before his firing.
Big Takeaway: Google's Bard chatbot can now answer specific questions about the content of YouTube videos.
Before, users could only use the YouTube Extension to find videos and not ask questions.
For example, Bard can now reveal recipe details from cooking videos that users query about.
Bard also leverages information from videos and the web to respond.
