Yup, they're all playing catch up, including Emad (the stable diffusion guy),

They know if GPT5 is released within 1-2 years, it would be game over for them in terms of catching up. It would take a while for them to even recreate gpt 4 or even gpt 3.

Even Google can't seem to catch up. Bard is like a GPT2.

I've been reading his writings and books for over a decade. He is extremely passionate about AGI and the singularity. His concern is that by focusing too heavily on LLMs, the AI community might inadvertently limit the exploration of alternative paths to AGI. He wants a more diversified approach, where developers actively explore a range of AI methodologies and frameworks, instead of putting all their eggs into the LLM basket, to guarantee that we can be successful in creating AGI that can take humanity to the great above and beyond.

Hey dude. You are correct that the phase of matter (solid, liquid, or gas) is largely determined by how the atoms or molecules interact with one another as a group. The interactions are driven by factors such as temperature, pressure, and intermolecular forces.

When considering a single atom of uranium suspended in water, the concept of phases is not applicable in the same way as it would be for a macroscopic sample of uranium. This is because phases are macroscopic properties that emerge from the collective behavior of a large number of atoms or molecules. A single atom does not exhibit a phase by itself, as the phase is a result of interactions between atoms or molecules.

To answer your second question, the difference between a single uranium atom suspended in water and a single uranium atom in space would be their surrounding environment and how they interact with it. In water, the uranium atom would interact with the water molecules and any other impurities present. In space, it might interact with cosmic rays, other atoms, or molecules depending on its location. However, neither of these situations would qualify the uranium atom to be classified as a solid, liquid, or gas, as these phases emerge from the collective behavior of many atoms or molecules.

Plasma, as you mentioned, is another state of matter in which atoms are ionized, meaning their electrons are stripped away, and this occurs at high temperatures or under intense electromagnetic fields. This state is distinct from solids, liquids, or gases, which involve neutral atoms or molecules.

So, phases (solid, liquid, or gas) are macroscopic properties that arise from the collective behavior and interactions of a large number of atoms or molecules. A single atom does not exhibit a phase on its own.

Lol. So this is why they've only given access to a very limited number of users. It's not ready yet. They don't want their stock prices to crash.

In all serious, this is embarrassing and concerning. Maybe Gary Marcus and the Facebook guy who said LLM's are an exit ramp on the highway to AGI could be on to something.

I hope not but this does not look good. There is zero intelligence here.
