There’s a lot happening in the world of AI. To help you stay on top of the latest news, we have compiled a roundup of the developments we are following.

OpenAI has responded to the New York Times’ detailed allegations of copyright infringement by stating that the Times may have tricked its models into reproducing nearly verbatim protected content. While probably not a colorable legal defense, OpenAI’s contentions on the practical difficulty of producing infringing content could be one of potentially many factors that are considered in AI litigation and licensing discussions.

Also, OpenAI has announced the launch of its GPT store for custom large language models based on GPT4 that are fined tuned for specific uses.

AI models may have discovered a new set of compounds that could potentially treat antibiotic-resistant MRSA infections. Unlike many deep learning models, these appear to disclose their reasoning and the biochemistry principles on which they rely.

In a new report, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has predicted that AI will affect nearly 40% of jobs and exacerbate economic inequity worldwide. The published report, entitled “Gen-AI: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Work” also states that women and college-educated individuals are best poised to reap the benefits of AI. Furthermore, if AI-based productivity gains are sufficiently large, the IMF report suggests that income levels could rise for most workers.
