Ultra-Wealthy Investors Fall in Love with This App (Here’s Why)

While financial markets tanked in 2022, one market saw its best performance in 277 years. The blue-chip art market – hauling in nearly $18 billion. Millionaires and billionaires love this market, but now you don’t need to be one to get access.

Masterworks is the fintech platform that lets you diversify your portfolio in this currently booming market. Their last three sales in 2022 handed investors 10.4%, 35.0%, and 13.9% net returns respectively.

After all, contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 131% from 1995-2021 with a near 0 correlation to stocks according to Citi. Thanks to Masterworks, investing in art by Banksy, Picasso, and Basquiat is easier than using ChatGPT to automate your emails.

AI powered autonomous air vehicles (AAV)

Anduril Industries, Inc. is an American defense company founded in 2017 by Palmer Luckey (sold previous VR headset company Oculus VR to Facebook), along with investors and founders connected to companies like Palantir and SpaceX. The company specializes in autonomous systems designed for military applications.

Their strategic focus involves supplying advanced technology to the U.S. Department of Defense, addressing areas such as artificial intelligence and robotics, which have often been avoided by Silicon Valley firms due to concerns over their controversial military uses.

Apple is reportedly spending ‘millions of dollars a day’ training AI

Apple is reportedly heavily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), dedicating millions of dollars daily to various AI projects. One of the key units, known as "Foundational Models," focuses on conversational AI and consists of approximately 16 members, including former Google engineers. John Giannandrea, Apple's AI head, leads this unit, with an emphasis on improving Siri.

These AI models have diverse applications, including the development of chatbots for customer interactions related to AppleCare and streamlining multistep tasks with Siri. The most advanced Language Model (LLM), internally referred to as Ajax GPT, is among these models and is reported to be trained on over 200 billion parameters, surpassing OpenAI's GPT-3.5 in terms of power. Initially designed for internal use, Ajax GPT remains tightly controlled within the company. Apple has not provided any official comment on this report.

What is Falcon-180B?

Falcon-180B is an advanced language model developed by UAE based Technology Innovation Institute (TII). Trained on a massive 3.5 trillion tokens dataset using thousands of GPUs, it stands out as one of the largest openly available language models.

Falcon-180B excels in various natural language tasks and benchmarks, often outperforming other models like GPT-3.5 and Google's PaLM 2-Large. Users can interact with Falcon-180B through the Hugging Face ecosystem and explore its capabilities via the Falcon-180B Chat Demo. However, commercial use comes with certain restrictions, necessitating a review of the license for potential users.
