OpenAI isn’t just sitting on its laurels after the ChatGPT launch. It’s constantly bringing in new features, products, and ideas to optimize AI for the future. Here’s a quick rundown of OpenAI’s recent activities and achievements.
CHATGPT-4 DIAGNOSED a 1 in 100,000 CONDITION IN SECONDS
– Dr. Isaac Kohane, a physician and computer scientist at Harvard, has tested the newest artificial intelligence model, GPT-4, in a medical setting. According to his findings, GPT-4 performs better than many doctors, as it can answer medical exam licensing questions correctly more than 90% of the time, translate information for patients, and give doctors helpful suggestions about bedside manner.
– Kohane tested GPT-4 on a real-life case and found that it could correctly diagnose a rare condition just as he would with all his years of experience. However, GPT-4 isn’t always reliable, and his latest book ‘The AI Revolution in Medicine’ is filled with examples of its blunders, ranging from clerical errors to math mistakes.
– Kohane is both impressed and horrified, as he cannot figure out how to guarantee or certify that GPT-4’s advice would be safe or effective.
YOKOSUKA, JAPAN MAKES HISTORY AS THE FIRST TO EMPLOY AI-EMPOWERED CHATBOT IN IT'S MUNICIPAL OFFICES
– Yokosuka becomes the first Japanese municipality to use OpenAI’s ChatGPT in municipal offices, as part of a one-month trial involving 4000 employees aimed at improving administrative tasks. With a declining population and limited employees, the city is hoping to use AI tools to free up human resources for tasks that require personal attention.
– The hope is to use ChatGPT to assist in tasks like summarization, marketing copy ideation, drafting administrative documents, and perfecting easy-to-understand language. The move comes as the Japanese government is exploring AI’s potential use for government administrative tasks.
THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES GETS 40 ChatGPT PLUS SUBSCRIPTIONS TO EXPERIMENT WITH AI
– Congressional offices have started experimenting with AI. The House of Representatives’ digital service has obtained 40 Licenses for ChatGPT Plus, which were distributed earlier this month. The House recently created a new AI working group for staff to test and share AI tools in the congressional office environment.
– According to an internal AI Working Group email, the AI tool is expected to be used for various day-to-day tasks and key responsibilities. Some potential applications include generating drafts for constituent responses and press documents, summarizing text in speeches, drafting policy papers or even bills, and creating logos or graphical elements for branded office resources.
OPENAI RELEASES SHAP.E, A GENERATIVE AI TOOL THAT PRODUCES 3D OUTPUTS IN SECONDS
– OpenAI has released a new project called Shap·E, a conditional generative model designed to generate 3D assets using implicit functions that can be rendered as textured meshes or neural radiance fields.
– Shap·E was trained using a large dataset of paired 3D assets and their corresponding textual descriptions. An encoder was used to map 3D assets into the parameters of an implicit function, and a conditional diffusion model was used to learn the conditional distribution of the implicit function parameters given the input data. It has demonstrated remarkable performance in producing high-quality outputs in just seconds.
ChatGPT PLUS, WITH SUPERPOWERS OF WEB BROWSING & 70+ PLUGINS
– The latest release notes of ChatGPT highlight various updates and new features added to the model, such as the ability to turn off chat history, export data, and use AI plugins. In addition, there are updates on the model’s performance, factuality, and mathematical capabilities.
– ChatGPT Plus subscribers get early access to experimental features, such as the ability to choose between different versions of ChatGPT and new experimental models that can browse the internet and use third-party services.
ChatGPT IN YOUR POCKET: OPENAI BRINGS ChatGPT to iPHONE
– OpenAI has released the ChatGPT app for iOS that allows users to have engaging and personalized conversations with an AI language model. It will sync your conversations, support voice input, and bring the latest model improvements to your fingertips. Also, ChatGPT Plus subscribers get exclusive access to GPT-4’s capabilities, early access to features, and faster response times, all on iOS.
– They have started the rollout in the US and are expected to enter additional countries in the coming weeks. OpenAI said: “Android users, you’re next!”
OPENAI TO GRANT $1,000,000 TO DEMOCRATIZE AI
– OpenAI has announced a program to award ten $100,000 grants for experiments aimed at developing democratic processes to govern the rules and behaviors of AI systems.
– Recognizing the far-reaching impact of AI technologies on society, OpenAI encourages applicants to create innovative proof-of-concepts for a system that incorporates diverse perspectives and is shaped by public interest. The program is specifically designed to address questions about AI behavior, such as the conditions under which AI should criticize public figures or how it should represent disputed views.
OPEN AI's LATEST IDEA CAN HELP MODELS DO MATH WITH 78% ACCURACY
– Even SoTA models today are prone to hallucinations, which can be particularly problematic in domains that require multi-step reasoning. To train more reliable models, OpenAI trained a model by rewarding each correct step of reasoning (“process supervision”) instead of simply rewarding the correct final answer (“outcome supervision”).
– It was found that process supervision significantly outperforms outcome supervision for training models to solve problems from challenging MATH datasets. The model in the experiment solved 78% of problems from a representative subset of the MATH test set.
– Additionally, process supervision also has an important alignment benefit: it directly trains the model to produce a chain-of-thought that is endorsed by humans.
OPENAI ANNOUNCES $1M CYBERSECURITY GRANT PROGRAM TO BOOST AI POWERED SECURITY
– OpenAI is launching the Cybersecurity Grant Program—a $1M initiative to boost and quantify AI-powered cybersecurity capabilities and to foster high-level AI and cybersecurity discourse. The goal is to work with defenders across the globe to change the power dynamics of cybersecurity through the application of AI and the coordination of like-minded individuals working for collective safety.
– OpenAI has also shared a few general project ideas while sharing the news. Moreover, it will prioritize projects intended to be licensed or distributed for maximal public benefit and sharing.
OPENAI'S MASSIVE UPDATE ON GPT -3.5 & GTP -4 API'S
– OpenAI announced exciting updates, including more steerable API models, function calling capabilities, longer context, and lower prices.
– Function calling is now available to enable LLMs to work more effectively and efficiently interact with your programs/tools.
– The latest GPT-3.5-Turbo model is available with support for 16K context (~20 pages of text)
