Top News & Why It Matters

| Intel And Nvidia Square Off In GPT-3 Time Trials

Intel and Nvidia are about to conduct the ultimate face-off in the world of next-generation artificial intelligence (AI). Under the spotlight for this event are: GPT-3 time trials, where both tech giants will flex their muscles through state-of-the-art AI techniques and models.

Stepping back into reality - this showdown between Intel and Nvidia raises some incredibly important questions about the future of AI tech. spectrum

Why does this matter?

Competition fuels progression, but as AI technology deepens its roots in every facet of society, we have to ask ourselves - where is it all leading? And more importantly, who's leading? As more players enter the scene, chances are they will push the borders of AI exploration even further. But isn't it just as important to remember that with great power, comes great responsibility? So maybe Intel and Nvidia’s ultimate challenge lies within ensuring ethical, socially-conscious development that brings benefit to all (not just to those queuing for popcorn at this AI spectacle).

| Amazon has a big problem as AI-generated books flood Kindle Unlimited

AI has taken over the world, or at least the book industry. This AI invasion comes with an upswing of AI-generated books landing on several best-seller lists, often sounding like gibberish. Imagine the scene — you're innocently browsing the Kindle store when boom, every second e-book is the nonsensical babble of a bot. Indie author Caitlyn Lynch shed light on this when she reported that only 19 legitimate books were in the Amazon Teens & Young Adult Contemporary Romance eBooks top 100 list. With much speculation about click-farming and flooding the market with AI spam, genuine authors and readers are left wading through pixels of gibberish. techradar

Why does this matter?

The rise in AI-generated content reveals a critical issue of quality control and authenticity. Creators did not sign up for a battlefield littered with AI-contrived books. Will this be the death knell for Kindle Unlimited if Amazon can't contain the torrent of AI nonsense? That's the underlying concern—how to stop the regurgitating AI machinery that impedes readers in their quest for organically conceived narratives. Issues of plagiarism, copyright infringement, and misinformation abound. As we look to the future, the need for robust mechanisms to protect user-generated content becomes ever clearer. Moreover, can we trust online marketplaces, like Amazon, to put things right? One thing's for sure: this AI saga is far from its final chapter.

| Many Bosses Still Want Humans Involved In Tech, Not Just AI

According to a study by software company Workday, 93% of business decision-makers in the UK and Ireland seriously believe that human beings should be right there, elbow-deep in AI decision-making.

And guess what else... They also think that AI and machine learning could kick productivity up a few notches.

However, only just a little over a quarter of those quizzed actually have faith that AI and ML can be ethically applied. Surprisingly, this slight apprehension isn't halting the march, just slowing it down - about half of them reckon that these ethical hiccups could be sorted out in the next five years. techradar

Why does this matter?

Here's the kicker - only giants like Microsoft and OpenAI are currently equipped to afford AI assistants that prioritize data privacy. Meanwhile, SMBs, start-ups, and, well, the rest of us mere mortals, are left waiting for these advancements to trickle down the tech food chain. But there's a silver lining in all this uncertainty and back-and-forth between humans and AI: the possibility of fresh job openings and the development of novel skills. It seems the AI revolution might just be opening doors, not slamming them shut. Who'd have thought, huh?

| Research Review

ChatGPT Vs. Google: A Comparative Study Of Search Performance And User Experience (Full Paper)

Ruiyun Xu (Rayna), Yue Feng (Katherine), Hailiang Chen

∑ Summary: This study found that users of ChatGPT, a language model-powered chatbot, spent less time on tasks and had similar task performance to Google Search users, with better user experiences but the potential for overreliance and misinformation.

!? Practical implications: The user satisfaction and time-saving attributes of ChatGPT could potentially lead to a decline in traditional search engine use and increased demand for chatbot integration in various industry sectors, potentially disrupting the job market by enhancing the need for AI and chatbot specialists while decreasing the need for traditional search engine optimizers.
