Nvidia new super AI chip

Nvidia has introduced the Blackwell B200 GPU and GB200 "superchip," hailed as the "world's most powerful chip" aimed at revolutionizing AI technology. With the B200 GPU boasting 20 petaflops of FP4 horsepower from 208 billion transistors, and the GB200 combining two B200 GPUs with a Grace CPU for up to 30 times the LLM inference workload performance, these advancements promise significantly reduced costs and energy consumption—up to 25 times less than the H100.


Nvidia developer conference

At Nvidia's GTC event in San Jose, CEO Jensen Huang captivated a vast audience with a reminder that they were attending a developer conference, not a concert, setting the stage for a deep dive into the realms of science, algorithms, computer architecture, and mathematics.

What full keynote below.

Musk open sources Grok

Elon Musk's xAI is releasing its Grok large language model as "open source," positioning it as a rival to OpenAI, which ironically isn't as open despite its name. Grok, designed to serve a similar purpose to ChatGPT with a unique sassy tone and enhanced Twitter data access, has drawn mixed reactions. Grok, now available with open weights for modification and tuning, stands out for its size but also underscores the limitations of such releases in advancing AI accessibility or innovation significantly.


Sam Altman x Lex Fridman podcast

OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, candidly expressed his dissatisfaction with GPT-4 during an interview with Lex Fridman, suggesting it falls short of expectations despite the surrounding hype. Despite Altman's critical view, GPT-4 has contributed to OpenAI's significant growth, achieving 100 million weekly users and an $80 billion valuation.

Altman is already looking forward to GPT-5, or the next iteration of their AI model, which he anticipates will significantly surpass its predecessor's capabilities within the next year.
