The AI Bandwagon
Ever since ChatGPT shook things up by adding some Artificial Intelligence to a chat platform, we’ve been both impressed and amused by its sometimes inaccurate but mostly awe-inspiring results. It’s no surprise that we’ve all been left curious and wondering what’s next.
From the release of GPT-4 to Microsoft and Google’s announcements of integrating AI into their work apps, this past week was an absolute thrill ride for tech-geeks like me!
We’ve seen the evolution of Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant, the introduction of LAMDA, Google’s Language model, and the rise and fall of Cortana, Microsoft’s digital assistant. But none of them captured the attention and following of ChatGPT.
In this blog, I’ll be taking you through the week as it unfolded, so buckle up and get ready for some AI-powered fun!
Alpaca 7B by Stanford
You may not be aware, but Alpaca 7B is actually a highly optimized version of Meta’s LLaMA 7B AI model. In contrast to GPT-3’s massive training dataset of 137 billion examples, Alpaca 7B was fine-tuned using just 52,000 examples. This makes Alpaca 7B both affordable and reliable, as it can run smoothly on virtually any computer.
AI on Google Workplace
ChatGPT’s impressive success has inspired organizations like Google and Microsoft to integrate AI into their productivity suites.
Google has announced the integration of AI into its workplace apps, which they call the “collaborative partner”. This AI will assist with organizing and summarizing emails, help with writing, proofreading, and brainstorming content for Google Docs, and suggest formulas, categorize, and transform data into actionable insights for Google Sheets. With AI-powered assistance, work productivity is bound to soar to new heights!
GPT-4 is a lot smarter than GPT-3.5, which is the technology used by ChatGPT. How smart, you may ask? Well, let’s just say that GPT-4 scored in the 90th percentile on standardized tests, while GPT-3.5 only managed to score in the 10th percentile. GPT-4 beats GPT-3.5 in almost every area, and it can even analyze images and write articles about them. That’s one clever AI!
Copilot is an advanced AI assistant powered by OpenAI’s GPT4. It will combine that AI power with key business data in order to streamline the functionality of Microsoft 365 staples like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Teams, and more.
Copilot is the digital assistant of my dreams! With simple English instructions, you can generate a pivot table or chart, ask Outlook to summarize your emails, or create marketing slides in PowerPoint from website content or product documents. It’s like having a genius AI assistant at your beck and call!
GPT4 in Microsoft Bing
Well, it seems like Microsoft is finally waking up and smelling the GPT-4 coffee! While I still think Google is the go-to search engine for most people, Microsoft’s Bing might just get a bit of a boost thanks to GPT-4. In fact, Bing’s chat experience is now running on GPT-4, so maybe we’ll see a bit more conversation (and a bit less frustration) from our virtual assistants.
Following Bing’s footstep, Google has announced its AI powered language model “Google Bard”. While it has quite a few tricks its sleeve, it can write a poem based on simple instructions. Google Bard shows immense potential to be a revolutionary tool for creative writing and content creation, despite being in its early stages.
The influx of AI news has been so overwhelming that I must now bring this blog post to a close.
It looks like the tech world just got a whole lot smarter! With all these new AI-powered tools at our fingertips, who knows what we’ll achieve next? But one thing’s for sure – the future is looking bright, and it’s all thanks to our robot overlords!
