ChatGPT on the go

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There was a glitch in our email scheduling last week, so if you read this message in last week’s issue: “You may have noticed (or not), we’re publishing on a Tuesday (instead of Thursday) this week. With so much happening in the AI-world, I thought we should get this to you earlier going forward (maybe even more frequently…foreshadowing perhaps?).” – You probably thought, wait this is still Thursday! I think it should make sense this time around now that we fixed the issue. Oops!

Read on!

  • As OpenAI continues to release new functionality that pretty much kills off many 3rd party apps, they announced the availability of ChatGPT on your mobile phone. Currently the iOS (Apple) app is available (but only to the US market and slooooowwwwly released to markets outside of US) and they promise to release an Android version of the app as well.

    Why it’s exciting news? You’ll now have a second brain in your pocket AND initial response is the mobile app is even better than the web app version of ChatGPT. But I wouldn’t know since I’m not based in the US (just saying).
  • While developments in AI are exciting, we do have to remember in a business-context, entering confidential information into ChatGPT or similar AI-apps is still a big caveat. Companies, such as Apple, who are putting on the brakes on AI-apps usage within the work environment makes sense until they design their own usage guidelines (i.e. divulging confidential information).
  • Running these massive AI models relies heavily on powerful hardware, computing power and chips. It’s the big tech bros, like Meta, are going all in on designing their own chips to specifically run AI models.
  • Some skeptics about how AI could disrupt jobs (e.g. massive job loss) probably don’t want to know that BT (British Telecom) the largest telecom in the UK, is slashing 55,000(!!!) jobs or 40% of their global workforce by 2030. They didn’t hold back saying 10K of those jobs are going to be replaced by AI.
  • Could AI doctors help with medical care shortages? Google’s medical AI, named MedPaLM 2 scored a 86.5% on a medical exam where the average human scored 60%.
