    MIT: We're building on Julia programming language to open up AI coding to novices

    MIT, where the popular Julia language was born, has created a probabilistic-programming system called 'Gen', which it says will make it easier for newbies to get started with computer vision, robotics, and statistics.

    Gen is part of Julia, which MIT researchers debuted Julia in 2012 and over the past year has become one of the world's most popular languages, currently sitting in 44th place on the Tiobe programming language index, just behind official Android language Kotlin, Microsoft's JavaScript superset TypeScript, and Mozilla-created Rust.

    According to MIT, Gen's creators "incorporate several custom modeling languages into Julia" to create the new AI programming system, which allows users to create AI models and algorithms "without having to deal with equations or manually write high-performance code".

      Microsoft Announces Massive $1 Billion Investment in OpenAI

      Microsoft is investing a massive $1 billion in OpenAI. The companies today announced a new partnership that will involve both the firms working together to build new AI tech and expand OpenAI’s Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) efforts. OpenAI was originally co-founded by Elon Musk in an effort to build AI systems that are safe and “benefits all of humanity“.

      The investment will see OpenAI moving all of its services to Microsoft’s cloud. The company will be using Azure to create new AI tech and deliver on its AGI promises.

      Both the companies will also be working together to develop new Azure AI supercomputing technologies. Microsoft will also become OpenAI’s preferred partner for commercializing new AI tech as part of the partnership.

          AI could help design better drugs that don’t clash with other medication - MIT Technology Review

          A new system that can predict a proposed drug’s chemical structure could help prevent adverse drug interactions, one of the leading causes of patient death.
          Since I take several drugs that work on my brain, this is good news for me too.

            Agreed. Anything that will cut down on a laundry list of side-effects can only be a good thing. I just fear that Big Pharma will get their hands on it and start charging through the nose for those medications.

              Aye, that's always a problem (at least here in North America).

              IBM Research AI Hardware Center marks first birthday with explosive gains in AI computation

              The Center is taking a holistic, end-to-end approach to AI hardware, spanning the computing stack all the way from fundamental materials research to AI workloads. Our goal is to improve compute performance efficiency 1,000x by 2029, with the annual delivery of new AI accelerator cores, targeting 2.5X improvement per year. We’ve more than doubled that gain in the first year.
              Bolding mine, and that gets a "wowzers" from me!

                A lofty goal for sure, but that's the same sort of thing Gordon Moore said about Intel. Eventually, those gains slowed down. We'll keep an eye on things, but I suspect there's a lot of wishful thinking there. Then again, Quantum computing is also becoming a thing, so who knows?
