#GPT4 saved my dog's life.

After my dog got diagnosed with a tick-borne disease, the vet started her on the proper treatment, and despite a serious anemia, her condition seemed to be improving relatively well.

After a few days however, things took a turn for the worse 1/

Greetings and happy Sunday!

As we enter April and Spring, I am excited to bring you issue #5 of The AI Brunch ☕️ - your go-to newsletter for the latest insights, news, and trends in the world of artificial intelligence!

What is The AI Brunch?

With AI technology continuing to evolve at a rapid pace, it can be tough to stay up-to-date with the latest developments. That's why every Sunday, I'll be curating the most relevant and exciting news in a concise and digestible format. Whether you're a seasoned AI professional or just starting, The AI Brunch ☕️ will help you stay informed and expand your knowledge. I'll also include one AI concept to learn every week and an Interview. Let's dive into this new edition!

📚 AI Concept of the Week: Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) has been a highly anticipated and debated concept within the field of AI. As we edge closer to unlocking AGI's potential, it is essential to understand its core concepts, how it might be developed, and the potential benefits and dangers it presents. My new blog post of the week delves into these aspects, providing insights into the world of AGI and its future.

🗞️Top News of the Week

BloombergGPT is a 50-billion parameter LLM that was trained on financial text and code. Here are some specific examples of how BloombergGPT can be used:

  • Answering questions about financial data and events: BloombergGPT can be used to answer questions about financial data and events, such as "What is the current price of oil?" or "What is the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy?"

  • Generating financial reports and analysis: BloombergGPT can be used to generate financial reports and analysis, such as earnings reports, financial forecasts, and risk assessments.

  • Translating financial documents: BloombergGPT can be used to translate financial documents, such as financial statements, regulatory filings, and news articles.

  • Writing financial news articles: BloombergGPT can be used to write financial news articles, such as articles about earnings reports, mergers and acquisitions, and economic trends.

BloombergGPT is a powerful new tool that has the potential to revolutionize the way financial information is analyzed and communicated. It is still under development, but it has already been used to generate accurate and insightful financial analysis.

Gary Marcus argues that we should pause the development of large language models (LLMs) until we can better understand the risks they pose. He cites a number of examples of LLMs being used to generate harmful content, such as hate speech and misinformation. He also argues that LLMs are being used to create deepfakes, which are videos or audio recordings that have been manipulated to make it appear as if someone is saying or doing something they did not actually say or do. Marcus believes that these risks are serious enough to warrant a pause on LLM development.

However, other experts disagree with Marcus's assessment. They argue that LLMs have the potential to do a lot of good in the world, such as helping us to understand complex problems and to develop new technologies. They also argue that the risks of LLMs can be mitigated through careful development and use.

The intriguing aspect of this letter lies in its alleged signatories, with Marcus' tweet asserting that top AI researchers, academics, and CEOs—including Elon Musk—have endorsed it. While some tweets have indicated that Yann LeCun of Meta also supports the initiative, he has publicly denied his involvement and expressed disagreement with the proposal. Consequently, the validity of the listed signatures has come under scrutiny on Twitter.

The underlying motive behind this call for a pause is up for debate: is it simply an attempt to level the playing field, or a genuine effort to act in humanity's best interest?

Italy’s data protection authority opened an investigation into OpenAI’s ChatGPT over alleged privacy violations. The agency said the chatbot collected and stored personal data without users’ consent, and that it failed to take proper measures to protect that data. OpenAI has 20 days to respond to the agency’s concerns.

Zoom IQ is a smart companion that empowers collaboration and unlocks people's potential by summarizing chat threads, organizing ideas, drafting content for chats, emails, and whiteboard sessions, creating meeting agendas, and more.

Some of the features of Zoom IQ include:

  • Chat compose: Zoom Team Chat users can soon use the compose feature to help compose messages based on the conversational context in addition to changing message tone to customize suggested responses.

  • Email compose: Harnessing the power of Generative AI, users will get email draft suggestions in response to the conversational context from prior Zoom Meetings, Zoom Phone calls, and email threads.

  • Meeting summaries: Zoom IQ will automatically summarize meetings and post them to Zoom Team Chat, even suggesting actions for owners to take on.

  • Whiteboard sessions: Zoom IQ can generate whiteboard sessions based on text prompts.

  • Meeting agendas: Zoom IQ can help you create meeting agendas by suggesting topics based on your previous meetings and conversations.

Twitter has made its recommendation algorithm open-source, as promised by Elon Musk. The algorithm is used to determine which tweets are featured in users' timelines and is composed of three main stages: gathering tweets from various sources, ranking those tweets with a machine learning model, and filtering out tweets that are not safe for work, that users have blocked, or that users have already seen. The code is available on GitHub for anyone to inspect and modify.

A man named Cooper claims that GPT-4 saved his dog's life. Cooper's dog, Sassy, was diagnosed with a tick-borne disease and was being treated by a vet. However, Sassy's condition worsened and the vet could not figure out why. Cooper then turned to GPT-4, which he had been using for other purposes, and asked it to diagnose Sassy's condition. GPT-4 suggested that Sassy might have Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA), a rare autoimmune disease. Cooper took Sassy to another vet, who confirmed that she had IMHA. Sassy was treated for IMHA and made a full recovery. Cooper believes that GPT-4 saved Sassy's life by helping him to get a correct diagnosis.

The thread has been shared thousands of times and has received a lot of attention. Some people have praised GPT-4 for its ability to help diagnose medical conditions, while others have expressed concerns about the use of AI in healthcare.

🎙️ Interview of the week: No-code Computer Vision with CrowdAI

CrowdAI is a no-code platform for computer vision. It helps organizations build and deploy custom models for visual AI, without the need for coding experience. I talk to Devaki Raj, CEO, and founder. I hope you enjoy the interview!

Enjoy your Sunday, and have a great week!
