Meta's got AI on WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook, but Microsoft isn't about to be left behind in the AI assistant race. Enter Copilot for Telegram—your new AI buddy right in your favourite messaging app!

What is going on here?

Microsoft's bringing the AI magic of Copilot to Telegram. No social media platform? No problem!

What does this mean?

Similar to Bing's Copilot, this Telegram version is powered by GPT models and Bing search, giving you a versatile AI assistant right in your chats.

Need to settle a debate? Ask Copilot. Planning a trip? Copilot's got your back. Bored? Copilot can even tell you a joke or suggest a game. It's like having a know-it-all friend who's always up for a chat.

And the best part? It's currently in beta and completely free! You can access it on Telegram desktop, mobile, or web—just look for @CopilotOfficialBot.

Copilot for Telegram stands out. Unlike Meta's AI assistants tied to social media, Copilot integrates with the privacy-focused Telegram. This could be a game-changer for users who prioritize secure communication but still want an AI helper.

Plus, it's free and versatile, making it worth a try for anyone who wants to upgrade their messaging experience with a touch of AI, while keeping their chats private.

Elon Musk's xAI is on a mission to build the world's largest AI supercomputer, dubbed the "Gigafactory of Compute." This ambitious project aims to connect 100,000 of Nvidia's most powerful H100 GPUs, creating a computing powerhouse four times larger than any existing AI cluster.

What is going on here?

Elon is building an AI supercomputer to power xAI’s projects.

What does this mean?

The supercomputer will primarily be used to accelerate the development of xAI's conversational AI, Grok. Grok is designed to be a next-generation AI assistant capable of processing and understanding not only text but also documents, charts, objects, and potentially even audio and video in the future.

xAI's aggressive timeline aims to have the supercomputer operational by Fall 2025, with Elon Musk personally overseeing the project. They are already the largest customer of Oracle for renting Nvidia's H100 chips, and might even gain early access to Nvidia's next-generation Blackwell chip via Oracle.

Why should I care?

This massive infrastructure investment is central to xAI's strategy to catch up with and surpass industry leaders like OpenAI and Microsoft, who are also investing heavily in AI infrastructure. The goal is to catch up, which doesn’t seem unlikely as xAI is now valued at almost 1/3rd of OpenAI, an 8-year-old AI company.
