Hello folks, here’s what we have today;
Time magazine announces their list of 100 influential people in AI. This list includes the leaders from top AI firms, policy shapers, artists and researchers. Many people (including me) are upset about Karpathy not being there but that’s the nature of any top 100 list.
Anthropic joins the paid chatbot field with Claude Pro. Similar to ChatGPT, Claude Pro will cost $20/month (or £18). It comes with priority access to Claude 2 during high-traffic periods and early access to new features. The biggest upgrade is that you can use the service 5x more compared to the free tier which means there are still some limits around it. From the FAQs, it roughly comes out as 500k tokens every 8 hours.
Imbue raises $200M to build AI systems that can reason. Imbue, (previously called Generally Intelligent) is now valued over $1B. They were previously focused on building AI agents and they say that reasoning is the primary bottleneck for effective AI agents. So they’re going to develop models that can not just code, but can reason logically.
