OpenAI rules board can prevent CEO from releasing new models

On Monday local time, OpenAI announced a series of guidelines on preventing AI risks.

On October 27 this year, OpenAI announced the formation of a security team called "Preparedness" to minimize the risks brought by AI.

Preparedness team leader Aleksander Madry said his team will send monthly reports to a new internal security advisory group, Bloomberg reported. The group will then analyze it and make recommendations to Altman and the company's board of directors.

Altman and company executives can decide whether to release new AI systems based on these reports, but the board of directors has the power to reverse this decision.

Google Gemini revealed that it used Baidu Wenxinyiyan for training

Recently, some netizens broke the news that when Gemini was used for Chinese conversations on the Google Vertex AI platform, Gemini-Pro stated that it was a large Baidu language model.

Weibo V @阑西 also posted that when testing Google Gemini, if Gemini's identity is asked in Chinese, it will answer "I am Baidu Wenxin Big Model."

"Qubit" has also conducted actual measurements on this. In the Poe platform and Google AI Studio, Gemini is used to conduct Chinese conversations. Gemini-Pro will indicate that it is a large model of Baidu Wenxin. But if you change it to English and communicate with it, it returns to the identity of Google's big model.

According to Jiemian News, when a similar identity test was conducted on Gemini-Pro yesterday afternoon, it was found that it had optimized its model and no longer acknowledged its "relationship" with Baidu. As of press time, Baidu has not responded to this issue.

Arm lays off more than 70 Chinese engineers and reorganizes China software business

According to Bloomberg, people familiar with the matter revealed that Arm, a British chip design company owned by SoftBank Group, recently laid off more than 70 software engineers in China, but the company will transfer some positions outside China.

The semiconductor industry faces a downturn due to sluggish demand for electronic products, with major chip companies including Qualcomm already cutting global workforces earlier this year. In November, Arm gave a disappointing sales forecast amid falling smartphone sales.

People familiar with the matter said that about 15 of the laid off employees will be assigned to different positions working on China-related projects. The eliminated positions are currently filled by contract software engineers who have participated in projects across Arm's global operations.

"To ensure that the Chinese software ecosystem can take full advantage of Arm's performance and capabilities, Arm is reorganizing China's software engineering resources to focus on direct support for local developers," Arm said in a statement.

Xiaomi responds to smart door locks that automatically open doors: This situation may occur only if the door is ajar

Recently, media reported that a user reported that Xiaomi's smart door lock always opens the door automatically for no reason: "The most terrifying thing is that it opens the door by itself in the middle of the night."

Xiaomi customer service responded that the products are guaranteed and if there is a problem with the product itself, the product can be returned or exchanged during the exchange period. It takes 15 days for exchanges and 7 days for returns, but returns and exchanges are not supported after the door lock is installed.

A spokesperson for Xiaomi issued a statement on its official Weibo account yesterday, saying: After verification, the product shown in the relevant video uses a semi-automatic lock body, with a direct plug-in C-level lock core, and does not have the automatic retraction function of the lock tongue.

Its physical structure determines that there is no possibility for the door to open automatically when it is locked normally. At the same time, the product does not support remote unlocking via the network. Only when the door lock is not completely closed or the installation tolerance of the door frame is too large, causing the door to be accidentally "open", is there a theoretical possibility of "accidentally opening the door automatically".

Xiaomi product after-sales engineers have come to complete the inspection of the product. The situation in the video has not been reproduced. After communication, concerns have been resolved for relevant users.

Xiaomi said, "We will also invite third-party appraisal agencies to conduct appraisal tests on the product to ensure the public's right to know about safety and security."

After the completion of this investment, NIO and CYVN will continue to carry out strategic and technical cooperation in the international market.

In July this year, CYVN completed a total strategic investment of approximately US$1.1 billion through private issuance of new shares and transfer of old shares.

It is reported that Hema is undergoing a discount transformation

Recently, there are reports that Hema has been unable to activate or renew memberships recently. Hema’s manual customer service said that starting from December 13, due to business adjustments, it will temporarily not support the activation or renewal of Hema X memberships.

According to Jiemian News, a person close to Hema told Jiemian News that Hema is vigorously transforming itself into discounts. After the price reduction of all products is completed in the future, there will be no need to buy additional memberships to enjoy low prices, making high quality and low prices more inclusive. .
