Altman was fired before because AI threatens humanity

According to Reuters, days before Altman was ousted, several OpenAI researchers wrote to the board of directors warning that they had discovered a powerful artificial intelligence technology that could threaten humanity.

This letter and the AI ​​technology mentioned may have been one of the key factors in Altman's dismissal.

The technology comes from an internal project called Q (pronounced Q-Star), which is said to demonstrate near-human advanced reasoning capabilities.

Some employees within OpenAI believe Q* could be a major breakthrough in the startup's search for so-called artificial general intelligence (AGI). OpenAI defines AGI as autonomous systems that surpass humans in most economically valuable tasks.

Anonymous sources from within revealed that with the huge computing power resources, this new model can solve certain mathematical problems. Although it is currently only at the level of primary school students, such tests make researchers optimistic about the future success of Q*.

The technological breakthrough has raised concerns among some employees that the company does not have the proper safeguards in place to commercialize such advanced AI models, people familiar with the matter said.

The number of people taking postgraduate entrance exams nationwide fell for the first time in nine years

The 2024 National Master’s Degree Admissions Examination will be held from December 23 to 25. Previously, some organizations calculated based on the ratio of the number of postgraduate entrance examination applicants to the number of college graduates in previous years that the number of postgraduate entrance examination applicants this year is expected to be 4.986 million.

According to statistics from the Ministry of Education, the number of applicants for the national master's degree examination in 2024 is only 4.38 million, a decrease of 360,000 from last year. It is also the first time that the number of applicants for the postgraduate examination has dropped since 2015.

According to China News Network, Chu Zhaohui, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Educational Sciences, believes that there are several factors behind the decrease in the number of postgraduate entrance examination applicants. The main influencing factor is employment.

For many undergraduate graduates, if they can find a job now, they would definitely prefer to find a job as soon as possible, which is more realistic than taking the postgraduate examination.

Moreover, many people have relatively lower expectations of finding a job after graduate school. Graduate school has time and financial costs.

However, Chu Zhaohui also said that the decrease in the number of applicants for the postgraduate entrance examination in 2024 is not too large, but it just shows that there has been a change in the minds of these hundreds of thousands of people.
