AI Agents are among OpenAI’s next big developments

AI Agents - AI Developments

What will it mean when artificial intelligence is available to start performing tasks on our behalf? OpenAI is now reportedly working on the development of AI Agents, which will be capable of performing certain basic tasks on a user’s device when asked to do so. If OpenAI is successful in creating this technology, it could completely change AI. If OpenAI successfully creates AI Agents able to do things like send an email or book a vacation on behalf of a user, it will entirely change the nature of the relationship…

Google Maps is getting generative AI

Generative AI - Person using Google Maps

Users will be able to benefit from artificial intelligence’s suggestions for the perfect destination and route. Google Maps is getting an upgrade that will involve the addition of generative AI technology. The goal is to provide users with an easier way to find new places around them and discover the ideal location for what they’re seeking. The technology will help users to refine their searches to a degree beyond what was previously available. Instead of searching for general concepts such as a sporting equipment store or coffee shop, generative AI…

Artificial intelligence designs battery requiring 70 percent less lithium

Artificial intelligence - Lithium

This has the potential to make electric vehicles much more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Artificial intelligence was recently used to design a surprising new type of battery that would require substantially less lithium – a rare metal – to achieve the same energy storage results. Lithium mining is terrible for the environment and drives up the cost of vehicle batteries. By reducing the need for lithium – as could be the case if the battery design created by artificial intelligence proves feasible – electric vehicles and devices have the potential…

2024 is expected to be the year of mainstream artificial intelligence use

Artificial Intelligence going Mainstream

AI is set to become a larger part of the daily lives of more people around the world this year. Artificial intelligence is hardly anything new at this point. It makes headlines on a regular basis and many people have already tried it out in one form or another. That said, this year, it is expected to make its way much further into the mainstream, as consumers use it as a part of their daily lives. Virtual assistants and autonomous vehicles are increasingly a part of the news we regularly…

DeepSouth AI supercomputer to become first at a human brain scale

AI supercomputer - Hand holding up digital brain

The technology is under development by Western Sydney University and will go live in 2024. Scientists in Australia at Western Sydney University are currently developing an AI supercomputer called DeepSouth, which it expects to be as powerful as the human brain. A human brain is exceptionally energy efficient for the amount it can accomplish per watt of power. To process the equivalent of a billion-billion (also known as an exaflop) mathematical operations per second, the human brain requires only 20 watts of power. The researchers are now working on creating…
