November 2023 - AI Tidbits Monthly Roundup
Open-source LLMs outperforming GPT-4 and the first 200k tokens LLM, Stability AI’s and Pika Labs’ revolutionary text-to-video models, and prompting GPT-4 to outperform Med-PaLM 2 on medical tasks
Welcome to a subscriber-only edition 🔒 of AI Tidbits, where I curate the firehose of AI research papers and tools so you won’t have to.
This is the monthly curated round-up, so if you're pressed for time and can only catch one AI Tidbits edition, this is the one to read—featuring the absolute must-knows.
Welcome to the November edition of AI Tidbits, where we unravel the latest and greatest in AI. November was filled with groundbreaking announcements from industry leaders and exciting progress in open-source AI.
This month, OpenAI announced GPTs, Assistants, and GPT-4 Turbo, followed by Anthropic's new release of Claude 2.1 and Perplexity's novel language models having access to online information. On the open source front, Yi open-sourced a 200k context window model, and Berkeley unveiled Starling 7B which has achieved performance on par with GPT-4, thanks to RLHF.
In the arenas of generative image and video, there has been a surge of remarkable advancements. Pika unveiled a groundbreaking text-to-video model, pushing the boundaries of visual content creation. Stability AI introduced Stable Diffusion XL, revolutionizing the generation of high-quality images at remarkable speeds, and launched Stable Video Diffusion, marking their foray into video generation.
These and many more exciting updates across novel promoting frameworks, autonomous agents, multimodal AI, and open-source repositories are part of this month’s roundup.
