Each week we scan a couple of interesting tech news and make it podcast like (with the help of AI)

    Tech Press Review - Sept 19th 2023

    Tech Press Review - Sept 19th 2023

    - The podcast kicks off with an intriguing discussion on Serverless Bun versus NodeJS, based on a benchmark test focusing on general processing performance, CRUD API, and cold start times. Results suggest that Bun could potentially challenge NodeJS, offering improved efficiency and performance.
    - Fans of AI in various applications will be interested in our next segment. The podcast delves into a semi-biological computer chip known as the "DishBrain," created by Monash University scientists. This innovative chip, embedded with human and mouse brain cells, showcases adaptability, and learning ability, opening up new possibilities in machine learning, particularly in autonomous vehicles, drones, and robots.
    - The third discussion focuses on the impact of AI in the software development process, particularly AI-generated software. The conversation raises awareness of both the benefits and potential security vulnerabilities associated with AI-supported tools such as GitHub Copilot, Amazon CodeWhisperer, and Tabnine.
    - The conversation then shifts to an interview with Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, discussing his vision about artificial general intelligence which, in his view, is likely to usher in a new form of society. It reflects on the promise of AGI along with the call for proactive measures to ensure its safe development.
    - The podcast continues with a deep-dive into Apple's new predictive text model powered by a Transformer language model. It offers insight into the speed and user experience this model brings to iOS and macOS users.
    - Don't miss out on our feature on Magick - a development platform aiming to democratize AI by enabling anyone to create and customize AI applications without needing prior coding knowledge.
    - The podcast concludes with an intriguing discussion on the GitOps methodology, highlighting how it provides a more efficient, stable, and secure approach to handling infrastructure as code. With the combination of version control, git workflows, and automation, GitOps promises improvement in infrastructure configuration.
    Ce podcast promet d’être un voyage fascinant, explorant différentes facettes des avancées technologiques dans le monde de l’IA. Que vous soyez un geek de la technologie, un développeur de logiciels ou simplement curieux des dernières nouveautés en matière d'IA et de technologie, ce n'est pas un épisode à manquer !

    Tech Press Review - Sept 12th 2023

    Tech Press Review - Sept 12th 2023

    - The podcast starts with an article titled "An A.I. Leader Urges Regulation and a Rethink", where tech executive Mustafa Suleyman advocates for government regulation on Artificial Intelligence (AI). He suggests that nations should have cabinet-level tech expert ministers and republicize private companies in the AI sector, with a governance model similar to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. His new book expressing these thoughts works as a wake-up call for policymakers and citizens.
    - The second article entitled "Your brain does not process information and it is not a computer" explores how brains are not similar to computers. It dives into the misconception that human minds process, store, and retrieve knowledge in the same manner as computers, which is not the case. The article highlights the complexity and uniqueness of the human mind and dives into why approaches like treating brains as computers are deemed unproductive.
    - The third article, "It’s finally here!" introduces the Mojo programming language, now available for local download. This language, designed specifically for AI developers, offers improved performance in AI acceleration, infrastructure, and integration with Python libraries. It also includes ample developer aids such as a VS Code Extension, a shell, and a Jupyter kernel for building and running Mojo notebooks.
    - In the article "Bun 1.0", the readers will learn about a new comprehensive toolkit for JavaScript and TypeScript development called Bun. The toolkit offers streamlined processes for running, building, and debugging, and can replace several pre-existing tools, such as Node.js, Babel, npx, and Webpack. It is designed to make software development faster, more efficient, and more enjoyable.
    - Lastly, "What OpenAI Really Wants" covers OpenAI co-founder Sam Altman's world tour that gave insights into the rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence. Not directly involved in the development of OpenAI’s popular products like ChatGPT or Dall-E, Altman still represents the organization's vision and serves as a figurehead for AI's new challenges and opportunities.
    In essence, the podcast will be exploring the intersections of technology, AI, and our experiences - regulatory needs of AI, the human brain vs. the computer debate, and innovations such as the Mojo programming language and Bun Toolkit. And finally, it will discuss the vision and aspirations of influential individuals like Sam Altman for the future of technology and AI.

    Tech Press Review - Sept 6th 2023

    - The podcast begins by exploring the intersection of Generative AI and intellectual property. The discussion covers the growing dilemma of who owns and profits from AI-generated work, as well as how perception of cultural appropriation and fair use come into play as AI continues to evolve.
    - Following this, listeners will learn about DINOv2; an open-source, self-supervised learning model developed by Meta AI. This method for training high-performance computer vision models can generate high-quality video segmentation and learn features beyond standard methods, benefiting many applications such as AI mapping of forests in various global locations.
    - The next topic delves into shape reconstruction in computer vision applications, an area where researchers have made significant advancements using differentiable rendering with 3D Gaussians. This discussion will help listeners understand the potential applications and effects of this technology.
    - After that, the exciting collaboration between Google Lab Sessions and Grammy award-winning rapper and MIT visiting scholar, Lupe Fiasco will be discussed. This partnership resulted in an experimental AI project named TextFX, designed to assist wordsmiths in their creative process. The project makes use of Large Language Models to facilitate creative text generation.
    - Wrapping up the podcast, listeners will get insights into how large language models (LLMs), like GPT-3 and PaLM, are being taught to reason symbolically. The piece explores an in-context learning approach that uses algorithmic prompting techniques to enhance the models' abilities for a more robust problem-solving capability and even detailed explanations.
    Overall, this thrilling podcast discusses the potential of AI in various fields, from creative industries to mapping forests. It explores the ethical questions surrounding AI-generated work and discusses groundbreaking methods for training AI models. Tune in to swim deeper into AI-land!
