Convert Anything Inside ChatGPT

We're checking out a GPT inside ChatGPT that lets you convert a file to almost any format you need!

Is the king of the LLM mountain ChatGPT in trouble? 😧

Welp, Anthropic's Claude just dropped 3.5 Sonnet with Artifacts.

And it’s a YUGE drop, TBH. 

Speaking of drops, NVIDIA’s stock did its best Snoop Dogg impression: dropped when it was too hot.

And the tech titans are jostling atop the ‘World’s most valuable company’ leaderboards. 

(That’s not an actual thing but we’re always keeping track. lolz)

And don’t sleep on this… a former OpenAI co-founder is starting a new company that we think is gonna be pretty impactful. (And probably make things a bit safer in this sometimes-scary AI world.) 

That’s just the tip of what’s crackin on the AI scene. You can spend hours upon hours each day trying to make sense of it all.

Or.

Orrrrrrrrr…..

You can roll with Everyday AI each and every dang Monday as we break down the AI news that matters.

Ready to get so smart your coworkers are gonna wonder if you’re Sam Altman’s sidekick or something? 

Alright, here’s whatchyu need to know in the world of AI.

Lez break it down y’all.👇

1 – Runway's Gen 3 Alpha looks INSANE 🎥

Runway's throwing (beautiful looking) haymakers in the AI video wars.

Gen 3 Alpha promises 10-second clips with all the emotional jazz and camera movements you could dream of.

Generation times? Lightning fast.

  • 45 seconds for a 5-second clip.

  • 90 seconds for a 10-second masterpiece.

But let's be real. When this drops, those servers are gonna be sweatin'.

Right now, it’s still not released. But Runway hinted it could be open and available at any point. 

What it means: 

We’ve talked about this a lot recently, but the AI video space is on FIRE. 🔥

Runway, Kling, Dream Machine – they're all slugging it out.

Still MIA and but lookin' like the final boss whenever it drops. 

If you're in creative or marketing, you better be paying attention. This tech is gonna change how we create content. Like, yesterday.

Get ready for a flood of AI-generated vids. The question is: will your company be leading the pack or playing catch-up?

2 – Claude 3.5 Sonnet just changed the game 🤖

Anthropic just dropped their newest offering, Claude 3.5 Sonnet.

And according to Anthropic Claude 3.5 Sonnet is benchmarking ahead of GPT-4-o, and every other model for that matter.

But the real showstopper?

It essentially allows you to create, edit and render code in real-time, right in the chat.

Docs, code, dashboards – you name it.

What it means: 

There’s gonna be a lot of back and forth in the LLM scene over the next few months.

But Claude landed a heavy hit with 3.5 Sonnet.

And the Artifacts feature?

Yooooooo.

It's like having a live preview of your work, all in one place.

We’ve been kinda hard on Claude, but this Artifacts feature is gonna be a must-have function for future LLMs.

Get ready though for either OpenAI, Meta and Google to slap back any week now.

We’re expecting some GPT-4o updates that could silence the Claude buzz, and Meta could drop its 400B model at any moment.

Grab your popcorn.

3 – NVIDIA: From zero to hero (almost) 📈

NVIDIA briefly became the world's most valuable company last week. 

$3.34 trillion market cap.

This is from the company that hardly anyone had heard of 3 years ago. 

Let that sink in.

But faster than you can say "GPU shortage," NVIDIA’s stock slumped by about 3% on Friday, wiping out more than $200 billion in market cap.

And now, Microsoft's back on top.

What it means: 

Three years ago, NVIDIA was a nobody to most folks.

Now? They're the backbone of AI.

We called this a year ago.

No one was paying attention to NVIDIA. We said they'd be the most important company in the world. (And most people shrugged us off, TBH.) 

And here we are, as NVIDIA claimed that spot last week. 

If you're not watching the AI chip war, you're missing the biggest business story of the decade.

4 – OpenAI's fighting cancer now 🏥

GPT-4o is helping docs create personalized cancer screening and treatment plans.

According to some reports, a month's delay in cancer treatment can increase mortality by 6% to 13%.

AI's stepping in to speed things up.

What it means: 

This AI isn't just cool tech anymore. It's life-saving technology.

AI in healthcare isn't the future. It's now.

And we’re happy to see more stories and collabs like this.

In the same way LLMs and GenAI can change the ways business is done, it can also change how we fight disease. 

If your business touches healthcare in any way, you need to be thinking about AI integration yesterday.

This could redefine patient care as we know it.

5 – OpenAI scoops up Rockset. No one's talking about it. 💼

According to reports, OpenAI just dropped a few hundred mil on Rockset, a search and analytics startup.

Rockset is all about boosting OpenAI’s enterprise game.

Real-time data processing.

Vector search.

The works.

One missing piece in the LLM space right now is real-time company data, so this move from OpenAI could be a part of the solution. 

What it means: 

This could be HUGE for enterprise AI.

One of the biggest knocks on LLMs is the fact that they don’t easily work with your company’s data.

That leads the way for hallucinations and overly vague responses from AI chatbots. 

Right now, even with the fancy enterprise version ChatGPT, your company's live data isn't in the mix.

This Rockset deal could change that.

We’re not exactly sure yet how OpenAI will leverage Rockset’s data prowess, but you’ve gotta believe they’re angling to bring real-time data in the pipeline for enterprise customers. 

RAG outta the box? If so…. Yes please. 

6 – OpenAI co-founder goes rogue for safety 🦸‍♂️

Ilya Sutskever, a co-founder of OpenAI, left the company about a month ago and has been kinda silent since.

And this was after Ilya really wasn’t seen or heard from for months up to that point. 

He’s silent no more – Ilya just launched Safe Super Intelligence Inc. (SSI).

SSI is all about making AI safe and powerful.

Why?

'Cause maybe OpenAI's too busy chasing shiny features, according to some former OpenAI team members on the safety team. 

What it means: 

Many experts are saying that OpenAI's been kinda slacking on safety.

Sutskever wasn’t having it, and took matters into his own hands. 

TBH, this is the third-party watchdog we might need in the AI space. As AI gets more powerful, safety's gonna be paramount.

If you're developing AI products, you better start thinking about safety now.
