AI just beat a human test for creativity. What does that even mean?

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Large language models are getting better at mimicking human creativity. That doesn’t mean they’re actually being creative, though.

AI is getting better at passing tests designed to measure human creativity. In a study published in Nature Scientific Reports today, AI chatbots achieved higher average scores than humans in the Alternate Uses Task, a test commonly used to assess this ability.

This study will add fuel to an ongoing debate among AI researchers about what it even means for a computer to pass tests devised for humans. The findings do not necessarily indicate that AIs are developing an ability to do something uniquely human. It could just be that AIs can pass creativity tests, not that… More.

Chuck Schumer says he asked Musk, Gates and others about whether to regulate AI: ‘Every single person raised their hands’

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Among the ideas discussed was whether there should be an independent agency to oversee certain aspects of the rapidly-developing technology, how companies could be more transparent and how the United States can stay ahead of China and other countries.

“The key point was really that it’s important for us to have a referee,” said Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and X, during a break in the daylong forum. “It was a very civilized discussion, actually, among some of the smartest people in the world.”

Schumer will not necessarily take the tech executives’ advice as he works with colleagues on the politically difficult task of ensuring some oversight of the burgeoning sector. But he invited them to the meeting in hopes that they would give senators some realistic direction for meaningful regulation.

Bing, Bard, and ChatGPT: How AI is rewriting the internet

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

Meta is reportedly planning to train a new model that it hopes will be as powerful as OpenAI’s latest and greatest chatbot.

Meta has been snapping up AI training chips and building out data centers in order to create a more powerful new chatbot it hopes will be as sophisticated as OpenAI’s GPT-4, according to * The Wall Street Journal.* The company reportedly plans to begin training the new large language model early in 2024, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg evidently pushing for it to once again be free for companies to create AI tools with.

Generative AI in Software Development (April 2023)

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

“Here is how Generative AI can help in the Overall Generative AI in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) stages. Overall, we want to treat Generative AI as senior developer/architect with more accessibility.

- Requirements gathering: ChatGPT can significantly simplify the requirements gathering phase by building quick prototypes of complex applications. It also can minimize the risks of miscommunication in the process since the analyst and customer can align on the prototype before proceeding to the build phase.

- Design: DALL-E, another deep learning model developed by OpenAI to generate digital images from natural language descriptions, can contribute to the design of applications. In addition to providing user interface (UI) templates for common use cases, it also may eventually be deployed to ensure that the design of a given application meets regulatory criteria such as accessibility.
