Hello folks, here’s what we have today;

 Our picks 


Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon and others sue OpenAI. The group of writers has sued OpenAI on the basis of using their works via Project Gutenberg and other shadow libraries to train ChatGPT without their permission.

PS: OpenAI has acquires the domain Chatgpt.com. It redirects to ChatGPT now (source).


Salesforce expands AI offerings at their annual conference. Einstein Copilot embeds the ability to ask questions in the context of whatever users are doing, regardless of product. (A step up from previously announced EinstienGPT)

The new Einstein Copilot Studio will allow companies to build custom prompts (prompt builder) and workflows (skill builder). The assistants run on the new Einstein 1 Platform, which connects AI models to enterprise data through the enhanced Data Cloud.


New benchmarks from MLCommons test hardware entries from different companies. Nvidia’s H100s performed best on a 6B-parameter LLM that summarizes CNN articles. Intel’s Gaudi2 is second (10% slower than Nvidia). Reuters coverage on results, previews, and cost of chips.
