Hi, diary!

I am thinking about what DeepMind co-founder, Mustafa Suleyman, says about technology. He thinks that humans need to contain it and balance its power. He wants ethical values, engineering, and regulation to protect us in the end. He is talking about artificial intelligence and synthetic biology too. They could make people wealthy but also disrupt and cause catastrophes. It is interesting, but it is also scary.

Today I made an amazing discovery! A research team at Radboud University and UMC Utrecht used brain implants to help us read people’s thoughts! We used Artificial Intelligence to turn brain signals into audible speech with 100% accuracy! This means people who are paralyzed can communicate with us and even predict whole sentences just from brain signals! My research is affecting the lives of so many people in a big way and I could not be more proud.

I learned about an amazing AI-based model that can accurately classify cardiac functions and valvular heart diseases from chest X-rays! Researchers from Osaka Metropolitan University developed the model, which was trained using data from 16,946 patients at four different facilities. It achieved an AUC score of 0.92 at a 40% cut-off for left ventricular ejection fraction. That makes it a potential supplement to echocardiography and a useful tool to diagnose valvular heart diseases in areas with a shortage of specialist technicians. Pretty cool stuff!

Next Monday is going to be an exciting day! Tesla is making a supercomputer that is going to be one of the most powerful machines in the world. It has 10,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs and it can do 340 FP64 PFLOPS and 39.58 INT8 ExaFLOPS. That is crazy! It is going to help Tesla train their full self-driving technology and do data processing for all their cars. They are investing more than a billion dollars to make this supercomputer and another two billion in AI training over the next two years! Wow, this is super cool! I cannot wait to see what this supercomputer can do!

I learned about a new survey done by Salesforce of more than 14,000 customers around the world. It seems like people do not trust companies to use AI the right way, with more than 40% of people saying they do not trust it. In addition, a survey in Australia said that 60% of people think AI is causing more issues than it is helping. Then a survey done in the US said that only 18% of people used OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and the people who did mainly were young, male, and had high educations. People on both sides of the political aisle were also worried about the lack of rules when it comes to using AI chatbots. It is scary to think of what could happen if companies do not use AI responsibly.

I was excited about IBM’s decision to invest in Hugging Face! It was part of a $235 million Series D funding round and even though IBM invested very little of that money compared to Google, Amazon, Nvidia, Intel, and Salesforce, this will help make its Watsonxai suite of A.I. models and tools available to more people. IBM’s CEO Arvind Krishna has been a big proponent of using A.I. to improve our productivity, so it makes perfect sense that the company wanted to get involved. This new investment has made Hugging Face’s value climb to an impressive $4.5 billion!

I heard about Google’s NotebookLM, a research tool powered by AI. It helps people interact with and generate information from documents, like text, images, or spreadsheets. It can generate “Source Guides” with summaries and related topics, which help people, get started with their research. Moreover, if there is not enough information in the documents, It is equipped with lots of knowledge from the web! NotebookLM is still in prototype form, but it is getting smarter every day so that soon it can become the go-to tool for taking notes and asking questions.

I am thinking about my future and it is somewhat scary! I hear people talking about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) might be eliminating or disrupting many jobs shortly. It is kind of a bummer because I want to have a successful career! My family and friends have been encouraging me to become AI-literate. That way, I will have an advantage when the time comes. They say learning skills like artistry and design can be helpful. It seems like AI might help make some jobs more accessible, like legal or tax stuff. On top of that, it could be used to help healthcare professionals do more preventative care and monitoring. It is all something to think about!

I was thinking about artificial intelligence (AI). It seems like Vice-Chairman Brad Smith, and Chairman, and CEO Arvind Krishna both think AI has the potential to be weaponized and should be controlled by humans. They think laws and regulations should be put in place to make sure AI has safety breaks to keep us safe. They also think AI can help create a lot more GDP and not take away jobs. It is all very interesting to me. I am sure the future of AI will be a fascinating one that we all need to pay attention to.

I found out about this cool thing called ChatGPT Enterprise! It is a special version of ChatGPT from OpenAI that is made especially for businesses. It is cool because it is more secure and private than the regular version, and I do not need an Azure subscription to use it! Some big companies already have it, like Block, Carlyle, and Estee Lauder Companies. I wonder if OpenAI and Microsoft compete to see who can get the most customers. I think it is so cool that they make cool stuff just for businesses!

I read about a cool report from Wells Fargo economists. They said that if people start investing in AI stuff – like robots and machines, it could help make the U.S. economy bigger. This would mean more money for everyone! The report also said that if people invest in AI, there could be higher interest rates because of all the extra economic growth due to the technology. It sounds like increased AI usage could be good for the economy – so let us hope it happens soon!

Alibaba has released two new AI models: Qwen-VL and Qwen-VL-Chat that help understand visual signals and do location-based queries. Both of these models are open source, so others can make added creations with them. This is so cool because there was a launch of an AI model by Meta that aids when writing code. These models are based on Tongyi Qianwen, which has Chinese and English transparency. Wow!

That’s all for today!
