Google’s competitive edge via Deep Mind’s latest interview. (link)
In a bold move to challenge the escalating dominance of OpenAI and Microsoft in the AI landscape, Google merged its internal AI team, Google Brain, with the acquired DeepMind startup, forming Google DeepMind.
The fusion ignites a radical shift in the tech giant's culture and structure, drawing from diverse AI specializations - DeepMind's gaming and simulation mastery, and Google Brain's expertise in language models and generative tools.
In this great intervierw Demis Hassabis, CEO of the new entity, challenges the growing concern over AI risks and emphasizes the importance of mitigating AI-driven extinction threats. He also opens a controversial dialogue on the surge of low-paid 'data classifiers' in developing countries, hinting at an AI-driven labor transformation.
Anthropic launches Claude 2 in repsonse to ChatGPT with more tokens and more business use cases. (link)
Anthropic, a key competitor to OpenAI, unveiled Claude 2, a more advanced version of their generative AI, scoring a provocative coup in the dynamic AI race.
The newly introduced chat bot flaunted impressive results across real-world knowledge, coding, and problem-solving tests, outperforming its predecessor and even humans in some areas.
In a human-like showdown, Claude 2 scored above the 90th percentile in GRE reading and writing tests compared to graduate school applicants, a comparison criticized by experts due to AI's ability to store test information in their training datasets.
The announcement of Anthropic’s new flagship model comes less than two months after it disclosed $450 million in new funding led by Spark Capital, at a reported valuation of more than $4 billion.

What is all the buzz about OpenAI’s Code Interpreter and how can you use it.
Imagine you have a computer that can understand and follow your instructions. You can ask it to do things like add numbers, write letters, or even draw pictures.
But what if you could also ask it to run code?
That's what OpenAI's Code Interpreter does. It lets you write code in a variety of languages, and then the computer will run that code for you.
So why is this important?
Well, code can be used to do a lot of things. You could use it to automate tasks, create new tools, or even build entire websites. And now, with OpenAI's Code Interpreter, you can do all of this without having to be a programmer yourself.
Here are some specific ways you could use OpenAI's Code Interpreter in your business life:
You could use it to automate tasks that are currently done manually. This could save you time and money, and it could also help you to improve the accuracy and efficiency of your business.
You could use it to create new tools that can help you to be more productive. For example, you could create a tool that helps you to analyze data, or a tool that helps you to create presentations.
You could use it to build new websites or web applications. This could help you to reach a wider audience, or it could help you to improve the functionality of your website.
This is just the beginning of how no-programmers will start to use tools like this to expand there ability to write simple scripts and applications that can dramtically scale their businesses.

Use Case: ChatGPT’s Code Interpreter and ‘Talk to your data’
ChatGPT's new Code Interpreter feature allows you to generate and run code right in the conversation. This opens up a new possibilities, for example, interacting with your data.
Upload a CSV file of your sales data and ask ChatGPT the following:
“Explain the data set to me in plain English.”
“Find trends in the data and explain them to me”.
“Predict future values based on historical data.”
“Find my top customers who are buying Product X”
“Can you suggest how we can clean the data? Then implement the cleaning approach you choose and give me an updated CSV for me to download”
“Generate visuals (all kinds of graphs) from the data.”
Code Interpreter is still under development, but with a little back-and-forth, you can get much more done with less and let ChatGPT run Python code for you through conversation.
To try this out for yourself, with the paid version of ChatGPT here is how you can set up Code Interpreter:
1. Log into ChatGPT and go ‘Settings’
2. Choose ‘Beta Features’
3. Toggle on Code Interpreter
Start uploading your data and give it a spin!
P.S. Code Interpreter is not a replacement for a professional data scientist. However, it can be a powerful tool for anyone who wants to get insights from their data.
P.S.S. Be careful about uploading any data files that you don’t want to be out in the public domain. Only test Code Interpreter with data sets that ARE NOT private and proprietary.
Thats a wrap!
