AI.gov will act as a primary resource offering information on AI safety standards, civil rights, labor impacts, and more. It includes a portal for the National AI Talent Surge aimed at swiftly onboarding technical specialists, and details on initiatives like the National Artificial Intelligence Initiative (NAII) and the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR).
This executive directive, holding the force of law, encompasses eight primary components ranging from AI safety and security standards to international cooperation on AI norms.

OpenAI has introduced new beta features for its ChatGPT Plus members, which now allows users to upload files and offers multimodal support. This means that users no longer need to manually select modes such as "Browse with Bing"; the system will predict the desired function based on the given context. While the multimodal feature isn't available for all Plus members yet, the Advanced Data
Analysis feature has been tested, allowing the chatbot to process files, summarize data, and even generate data visualizations after a short analysis period. Furthermore, the chatbot isn't limited to text files. Users can upload images, and through DALL-E 3, request the chatbot to modify or generate new content based on the images.
Google investing $2B in Anthropic
Anthropic has reportedly secured a significant $2 billion investment from Google, reflecting the immense interest and investments AI leaders like Anthropic and OpenAI are attracting from major tech firms. The investment breakdown, according to sources, consists of $500 million upfront and a potential additional $1.5 billion in the future, mirroring Microsoft's hefty investment in OpenAI earlier in the year. Additionally, with Amazon's purported commitment of up to $4 billion to Anthropic, it signifies the fierce competition among tech giants to secure a stake in AI frontrunners.
This surge of investments underscores a developing proxy battle among tech companies vying for association with a select few leading entities in the large language model (LLM) domain. Despite their expertise in various tech sectors, these tech behemoths recognize the challenges of rivaling the likes of OpenAI or Anthropic in the LLM space.
