    • Apple and OpenAI's focus on multimodal AIApple is integrating more computing power for on-device AI models, while OpenAI is reportedly developing a multimodal language model. The race for next-gen multimodal language models is heating up.

      The latest updates in AI, such as the new Bard release and Apple's neural engine, represent an expansion of multimodality in the field. This means that companies are focusing on integrating new technological capabilities to gain an edge in the AI race. For instance, Apple is bringing more computing power to mobile devices to run personalized AI models on-device, while OpenAI is reportedly working on a multimodal language model (GPT 4) with multimodal features. However, OpenAI's progress has been slower than expected, with some reports suggesting that access to compute and internal issues may have contributed to the delay. Regardless, the race to launch the next generation of large language models with multimodal capabilities is heating up, with both Google and OpenAI reportedly making significant strides. Ultimately, these advancements are significant because they have the potential to improve the usability and functionality of AI tools, making them more valuable to users.

    • Advanced language models and regulatory concernsOpenAI's GPT-4 and future models raise concerns about misuse and potential regulatory intervention. OpenAI is addressing legal concerns, and Google's data advantage could give it an edge in multimodal models. Debate continues on cost reduction, fine-tuning, and regulatory impact on LLM development.

      The development of advanced language models like OpenAI's GPT-4 and potential future models, such as Gobi, is raising concerns about potential misuse by bad actors and the possibility of regulatory intervention. OpenAI is reportedly working on addressing legal concerns, and their upcoming developer conference on November 6th is expected to bring new advancements, possibly including a multimodal GPT-4 model. Google, with its vast trove of data from YouTube, could have an advantage in the multimodal space. The debate around the future of large language models also brings up questions about cost reduction, fine-tuning, and the potential impact of regulatory measures on their development. The technical question remains whether making LLMs bigger will continue to yield significant improvements. The race is on for companies to get to parity or even surpass OpenAI's dominance in the space. The regulatory landscape and the technical challenges are significant, adding intrigue to this rapidly evolving field.
