Cloude 3 is the first closed-source Large Language Model (LLM) that can compete with OpenAI’s GPT-4. In fact, according to all benchmarks, albeit slightly, Cloude 3 surpasse ..read more

Welcome back to another month full of news and progress regarding artificial intelligence. From this month, I will try to bring more order to the news by organizing it into sections that I plan to keep unchanged in the upcoming issues. Top of the Month The sudden launch of OpenAI’s new Sora video generation model has been the most significant news of the month. It is a groundbreaking shift, according to all experts, both in the way video is produced and the authenticity of the content created. Demos generated by this model can be viewed on OpenAI’s website, which can currently produce videos u ..read more

Welcome to our regular monthly update on artificial intelligence, a field that never ceases to amaze us.

Writing concisely about artificial intelligence is increasingly challenging. Synthesizing a month’s worth of overlapping and rapidly evolving news is a complex task. This month, I want to focus on three main events. Firstly, I’ve previously mentioned the European Union’s agreement on AI regulation. Set to take effect in 2024, with gradual implementation over the following two years, this timeframe is significant in the rapid evolution of AI technology. The central issue here is balancing innovation with the need for regulation. Europe faces a delicate balancing act, aiming to create an environ ..read more

This has been another incredible month. I won’t get into the speculation regarding the OpenAI affair. A lot has been written, let’s just wait and see if it is just a compute war, a next generation training technique or both or maybe just a matter of money. In the meantime the landscape of artificial intelligence is evolving at a breakneck pace, with industry giants like OpenAI, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google leading the charge. OpenAI first Developer Day did not disappoint. Here are the critical takeaways: The newly introduced GPT-4 Turbo has set a new benchmark for large language models (LLMs ..read more

The breaking news of October, at least for us in Italy, is the GA of the long awaited Italian region. Italy North is eventually available to deploy workloads into. Now to be honest I don’t expect a rush to the new region, based on customer provider and location we can probably get better latencies than west europe, but I think it’s nevertheless important to have a local region especially for Government and local administration. The second notable news, is a new project form the Azure Incubation team lead by Mark Russinovich, project Radius. Radius is a cloud-native application platform&nb ..read more

AI investments are not finished and Anthropic is gaining a lot of attention, after the 4B$ investment by Amazon I reported in September post, in October Google added 500M$ with the promise to add 1.5B$ more. Since Anthropic tailors their product specifically for corporate and enterprise-level solutions this must come to no surprise.
