Musk to step down as Twitter CEO

Musk announced on Twitter that he was stepping down as CEO of Twitter and that a new CEO had been identified.

According to reports, NBCUniversal's advertising executive Linda Yaccarino is in talks to become Twitter's new CEO, citing people familiar with the matter.

As for Musk himself, he will serve as CTO and be responsible for product work.

Shares of Twitter jumped 2% on the news.

Under his leadership, Twitter's core advertising business has taken a hit. Several companies stopped paid promotions with Twitter because of an increase in offensive speech on the platform.

Softbank plans to create "Japan ChatGPT"

Softbank CEO Junichi Miyagawa announced at the performance briefing that the company established a new entity in March and selected nearly 1,000 employees to participate in the development of the "Japanese version of ChatGPT".

We are all very optimistic about ChatGPT.

Most of our meetings these days are related to ChatGPT.

This is an important step for Softbank to further develop AI and create independent intelligent technology.

According to Junichi Miyagawa, Sun Zhengyi recently convened a group of engineers to discuss the possibility of ChatGPT. Over the past few years, Masayoshi Son has always believed that AI is a revolutionary force.

Yesterday, the Japanese government held the first meeting of the "AI Strategy Conference" at the Prime Minister's Office to discuss formulating rules for the use of AI.

AI has both the potential and the risk of making the economy and society more positive. It is necessary to properly deal with both. It is hoped that the content and results of the meeting will be reflected in the formulation of international rules.

The session will explore ways in which educational institutions, administrations, and businesses use AI, as well as regulatory mechanisms.

HKUST Xunfei denies the Spark large model casing ChatGPT

Recently, HKUST Xunfei Spark large model was released. Due to the large number of words such as OpenAI and ChatGPT in the training data of the large Spark model, the above information will appear incorrectly in some questions and answers.

There are rumors on the Internet that Xunfei Spark's large-scale model casing OpenAI's ChatGPT is neither factual nor logical.

HKUST Xunfei pointed out that if it is a ChatGPT shell, it is impossible for the Xunfei Xinghuo large model to respond faster than ChatGPT; it will not appear in text generation and mathematical capabilities. The Xinghuo cognitive large model has already taken the lead in China. And compared to ChatGPT, it also has certain advantages; it is also close to ChatGPT level in terms of language understanding and knowledge question answering.

 Pausing AI research won't help

Eric Horvitz, Microsoft's chief scientific officer and one of the world's top AI experts, doesn't think a six-month moratorium will solve AI's problems, but he has some ideas on how to keep AI safe.

In a recent interview, Horvitz talked about the dangers of large language models and whether they might pose an existential danger or threat to society.

Horvitz thinks the industry needs to invest more in understanding, guiding, and even regulating the technology—into it, not on hold. He felt it was more of a distraction, but he liked the idea that it expressed the anxiety and discomfort of people in the context of rapid development.

Horvitz also supports the open source of large language models for wider academic research, but the top priority now should be to add more restrictions and protection measures to large models. Before solving security issues, open source is not Microsoft's top priority.
