The National Press and Publication Administration responded to the draft management measures for online games: aiming to promote the prosperity and healthy development of the industry

On December 22, the "Measures for the Administration of Online Games" (Draft for Comments) drafted by the State Press and Publication Administration was released to the public for comments.

The relevant person in charge of the National Press and Publication Administration stated that the draft for comments is based on ensuring and promoting the prosperity and healthy development of the online game industry. It clearly addresses issues such as the access of online game business units, establishes a special chapter on "Guarantees and Rewards", and proposes a A series of incentives.

At the same time, provisions are made to protect the rights and interests of minors and consumers.

During the drafting process of the draft, opinions from relevant departments, industry associations, enterprises and other parties were widely listened to through various methods.

The person in charge said that the public solicitation of opinions on departmental regulations is a process to listen to more opinions and improve the regulations and provisions.

The State Press and Publication Administration will carefully study the concerns and opinions raised by all parties on Articles 17, 18 and other contents of the draft, and will continue to listen to the opinions of relevant departments, enterprises, users and other parties. Based on further modifications and improvements.

In response to soliciting opinions on new online game regulations, NetEase Games stated that we believe that the issuance of this draft is mainly to make up for the lack of relevant management measures after 2019 and will not have a substantial impact on NetEase's business. NetEase Games has always strictly implemented various rules, regulations and requirements such as anti-addiction for minors.

We will actively participate in feedback on newly released drafts for comments. We believe that the introduction of new regulations will be more conducive to the protection of consumer rights and interests, and will be conducive to the continuous progress of game companies, thereby promoting the sustained high-quality, healthy and orderly development of the entire game industry.

OpenAI plans to launch a new round of financing at a valuation of US$100 billion

According to Bloomberg, OpenAI is planning a new round of financing with a valuation expected to exceed US$100 billion. If successful, this means that OpenAI will become the world's third largest startup company after ByteDance and SpaceX.

People familiar with the matter said that investors who may participate in this round of financing have begun preliminary discussions, but details such as specific financing terms, valuation and timing have not yet been finalized and may still change.

OpenAI has also reportedly discussed raising funds for a new chip joint venture with Abu Dhabi-based G42. OpenAI plans to raise $8 billion to $10 billion from G42, people familiar with the matter said.

It's unclear whether the chip business and broader corporate financing activities are related.

Multiple senior executives of Vivo were exposed to have been arrested in India. The company responded: Deeply shocked and will take legal measures

According to reports from the Times of India, the Indian Tribune and many other media, the Indian Enforcement Directorate (ED) recently arrested the interim CEO and CFO of vivo’s Indian branch as well as a consultant on the grounds of “anti-money laundering investigation.”

A spokesperson for Vivo said: "We are deeply shocked by the current actions of the authorities. The recent arrests indicate that harassment continues, bringing uncertainty to the entire industry." The company will resolutely use all legal means to respond and challenge these allegations.

Two months ago, India's financial crime watchdog arrested four employees of Vivo India, including a Chinese national, claiming they were involved in money laundering.

These persons are in judicial custody and the agency had filed a charge sheet in the case in early December. Vivo denies the accusations.

Forbes' list of billionaires with the most wealth growth in 2023: Musk tops the list

Recently, "Forbes" announced the list of the top 10 billionaires with the largest increase in wealth in 2023.

According to Forbes estimates, as of December 15, 2023, the ten richest people with the largest increase in wealth this year have collectively increased their net worth by US$490 billion.

Seven of these 10 people are technology tycoons. Shares of Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, Nvidia, Tesla and Meta have all far outperformed the broader market in 2023, helping the billionaires behind them multiply in value. In addition, only 2 of these 10 people are from outside the United States.

Among them, Elon Musk ranks first with an increase of US$108.4 billion (approximately RMB 770 billion) in 2023, and his current net worth reaches US$254.9 billion (approximately RMB 1.82 trillion).

This substantial growth was mainly due to the recovery of Tesla's stock price and the surge in SpaceX's valuation. Among them, Tesla's stock price has risen by more than 100% this year, with a market value of more than 800 billion US dollars. The rocket company SpaceX has successfully conducted more than 90 launches this year, and its valuation soared to US$150 billion in July this year.

 Meta Chief AI Scientist: Chatbots make creativity more accessible to civilians

Recently, Yann LeCun, Meta’s chief artificial intelligence scientist, was interviewed by Wired magazine.

When asked about the reason for being "not optimistic" about machine learning, he said that machine learning itself is a good technology, but human-level artificial intelligence cannot be achieved simply by scaling up existing methods.

Furthermore, in his view, artificial intelligence will bring many benefits to the world, but some people are exploiting fears about this technology and putting us at risk of moving away from it.

When it comes to the topic of whether chatbots will replace human jobs, Yann LeCun said that chatbots democratize creativity to some extent. They can generate very smooth and well-styled text, but they are boring and It is possible that the content created may be completely wrong.

Apple releases open source multi-modal large language model Ferret

Researchers from Apple and Columbia University quietly released an open source multi-modal large language model called Ferret in October this year.

The model can accurately identify images and describe their content, as well as identify and locate various elements in the image.

Ferret is available in 7B and 13B versions. In addition, in order to enhance the capabilities of the model, Apple specially collected a data set called GRIT. This data set contains 1.1M samples, covering rich hierarchical spatial knowledge.

At the time, the version contained code and weights but was for research use only, not commercially licensed, and did not receive much attention.

As Apple recently published a number of revolutionary papers, announcing a major breakthrough in deploying large language models on the iPhone, many people in the AI ​​community noticed the release of Ferret.

However, Bosworth also made it clear that this is an "incredibly expensive" device and cannot be mass-produced in the short term.
