OpenAI has unveiled a new feature called “GPTs” that allows users of ChatGPT to create customized AI assistants for specific purposes. The GPTs, which can range from a writing coach to a sous chef, enable users to receive tailored assistance, such as writing feedback, recipe advice, homework help, or creating die-cut stickers. OpenAI plans to launch a GPT Store where users can share and access pre-made GPT personalities. Additionally, users can create their own GPTs through the GPT Builder feature, which does not require any coding. OpenAI envisions GPTs as a way to explore the potential of AI agents in various real-world tasks.
Ben Goertzel, CEO of AI and blockchain developer SingularityNET, believes that the advent of artificial general intelligence (AGI) is much closer than previously anticipated. He suggests that large language models like Meta’s Llama2 and OpenAI’s GPT-4 have increased enthusiasm for AGI, attracting more resources and talented individuals to work on the technology. While the idea of AGI surpassing human intelligence may be met with skepticism, Goertzel argues that it is part of human progress, similar to previous shifts in civilization. He also highlights the role of individual motivations and the desire for financial gains and artistic exploration in driving AI development.
British AI firm Luminance has developed an advanced AI system called Autopilot that can autonomously analyze and negotiate contracts without human involvement. Using its proprietary large language model (LLM), Autopilot streamlines the contract negotiation process, eliminating the need for lawyers to handle routine paperwork. The software can analyze clauses, make changes, and finalize contracts in just minutes, significantly reducing the time spent on reviewing and negotiating routine documents. Luminance’s Autopilot feature demonstrates the potential of AI to revolutionize the legal industry and improve efficiency.
Revolve and Maison Meta, an AI-centric creative agency, have released the first collection of physical garments from the top three collections submitted to the design competition during the inaugural AI Fashion Week. The winning designers, including those without a fashion background, used generative AI tools to create innovative and unconventional designs, showcasing the technology’s ability to revolutionize the fashion industry. Revolve plans to continue collaborating with Maison Meta for future AI Fashion Weeks and expand the number of winners.
Chinese Banks Embrace AI to Boost Efficiency and Cut Costs, but Face Technical and Regulatory Hurdles
Chinese banks are adopting AI technology to save on labor costs and optimize efficiency. However, the integration of AI faces challenges, both technically and from a regulatory standpoint. The global AI trend, spearheaded by Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s intelligent chatbot, ChatGPT, has prompted banks across industries to incorporate smart AI helpers into their daily operations. While this transition is promising, banks in China must navigate the complexities of implementing AI systems and complying with regulations to ensure successful integration.
