Artificial Intelligence Q1 2023

As the AI field hots up I am switching from an annual update to Quarterly although this will still leave you way behind, imho.. ;-)

Here are some specific events and products related to artificial intelligence that have occurred so far in 2023:

Google Launches New AI-Powered Assistant: In January 2023, Google launched a new AI-powered assistant called "Google Assistant Pro." The new assistant is designed to provide more personalized and contextually relevant responses to user queries.

Microsoft Acquires AI Start-Up: In February 2023, Microsoft announced that it had acquired an AI start-up called "Deep Learning Technologies." The start-up specializes in developing advanced deep learning algorithms for use in a variety of applications.

NVIDIA Announces New AI Hardware: In April 2023, NVIDIA announced a new set of hardware designed specifically for AI applications. The hardware, called the "NVIDIA AI Data Center," is designed to provide increased performance and efficiency for AI workloads.

GPT-4 is the largest and most powerful language model in existence, setting a new benchmark for natural language processing. is in the tech papers. Previously token size was 2048 tokens, now it is 8,192; a 4x increase in size. (most likely subject to pro plans or other variations)
expert reaction to OpenAI announcing GPT-4 - 

These are just a few examples of specific events and products related to artificial intelligence that have occurred so far in 2023. As the year progresses, we will see even more exciting developments in this rapidly evolving field, imho.

I'd suggest that you check out Matt Wolfe on Y/T et al. I am not affiliated with Matt in any way (yet) but must reach out to him one of these days. He is doing some seriously heavy lifting in terms of keeping all of us up to date with what is going on, imho. 

Serious kudos to Matt Wolfe, thanks Matt..  find him via the links below.

Artificial Intelligence 2022

Folks it is becoming serious now, artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing at an unbelievable pace.

Here are some of the key events in AI in 2022:

Quantum Machine Learning: In 2022, quantum machine learning (QML) emerged as a major area of focus in the field of AI. QML combines the principles of quantum computing with machine learning algorithms, enabling more complex and accurate data analysis. Researchers at Google and IBM made significant advancements in QML, including the development of new quantum machine learning algorithms and the launch of quantum machine learning platforms.

Ethical AI: There is growing concern about its ethical implications. In 2022, there was a renewed focus on ethical AI, with several new initiatives and frameworks launched to address this issue. For example, the Partnership on AI released new ethical guidelines for AI development, while the IEEE launched a new standard for ethically aligned AI. Personally I always insert the word Refusniks into this.

Robotics in Manufacturing: Robotics continued to play an important role in manufacturing in 2022, with new advancements in automation and robotics technology. In particular, there was a growing trend towards collaborative robots, or cobots, that work alongside human workers to improve productivity and safety in manufacturing environments.

Explainable AI: Explainable AI, or XAI, refers to the ability of AI systems to explain their decision-making processes in a way that humans can understand. In 2022, there were several new developments in XAI, including the launch of new explainability tools and frameworks. This is an important step towards building trust in AI systems and ensuring that they are used ethically.

AI in Healthcare: AI continued to make significant contributions to healthcare in 2022, with new applications in disease diagnosis, drug discovery, and patient care. For example, researchers at MIT developed an AI system that can predict the risk of developing breast cancer, while AI-powered chatbots are being used to provide mental health support to patients.

Autonomous Vehicles: Autonomous vehicles are one of the most exciting applications of AI. In 2022, there were several new developments in autonomous vehicles, including the launch of new self-driving cars and the development of new AI algorithms to improve safety and efficiency on the roads.

Natural Language Processing: Natural language processing (NLP) is a critical component of many AI applications, including virtual assistants and chatbots. In 2022 we saw the launch of new language models and the development of new algorithms for speech recognition and natural language understanding.

Edge AI: Edge AI refers to the ability of AI systems to process data locally, without relying on cloud computing. This is an important development for applications that require low latency and real-time processing, such as self-driving cars and industrial automation. In 2022, there were several new advancements in edge AI, including the development of new hardware and software solutions. I think that perhaps in 2023 we will see plug ins offering this same tech.

In conclusion, 2022 was a year of progress, yet again. From quantum machine learning and ethical AI to robotics in manufacturing and autonomous vehicles, the tech will continuing to transform our engagement in revolutionary ways.

Are you ready?
