What happened this week in AI by Louis
Last week, we successfully hosted not one, but two events directly on our Discord server — a first for us. The events were a great start to 2023, and we’re excited to host many more in the future. To keep track of upcoming events, we’ve added a section on our Discord community where you can find our upcoming (free) events.
More information is in our new event section below!
I also wanted to mention that we would love it if you reached out to us if you’d like to host an event on our server. We’ll share and host it for you, providing a live audience of AI enthusiasts, students, and professionals. You’ll also have the freedom to record and use the content afterward.
- Microsoft eyes $10 billion bet on ChatGPT
Microsoft is reportedly in negotiations to invest $10 billion in the company behind ChatGPT, the highly popular app that has captivated both casual users and artificial intelligence experts since its latest software release. The funding, which would also involve other venture firms, would value OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, at $29 billion, including the new investment.
- Generative AI: a game-changer that society and industry need to be ready for
Generative AI is not a new concept and the machine-learning techniques that underlie it have progressed over the last decade. However, with the recent release of models such as Stable Diffusion and ChatGPT, generative AI has become a highly discussed topic among technologists, investors, policymakers, and society as a whole. Yet, as we continue to explore the potential of these systems, it is essential to address questions such as the risks involved, governance, and future implications to prepare for the emerging capabilities of generative AI.
- In the Reign of Generative AI, All Hail… the Fact-Checker
Generative AI, whether it is used for content and images or simplifying our work through automation, is a technology that is here to stay. As we continue to experiment with it and push its boundaries, it is essential to keep in mind that machine learning is not perfect. This is not only evident in the occasional bizarre phrases or images it produces but also in its capacity to get facts incorrect. The role of fact-checking, which has been relatively insignificant for the past few decades, may become a vital practice in content creation in the years to come.

- How to use ChatGPT to boost your writing
ChatGPT has become a viral sensation and has reached a million users. However, people are still experimenting with the best ways to utilize it to its full potential. This article explores the proper way to present a prompt, considerations to keep in mind when crafting a prompt, and techniques for getting the most out of ChatGPT.
- Introducing Simple ML for Sheets
In this Twitter thread, @Sumanth_077 presents a step-by-step guide on how to construct machine learning models directly within Google Sheets. The guide includes clear, visual instructions and references, introducing a simple approach to machine learning for sheets. It also highlights the capabilities of Sheets and how to achieve them with a few simple steps.
- Prompt Engineering 101: Introduction and resources
As we continue to experiment with new generative AI systems and strive to achieve optimal results, it is crucial to comprehend the impact that prompts can have on the outcome. This guide delves into the concept of a prompt, its fundamental components, and the process of prompt engineering.
