Elon Musk criticizes Microsoft exclusively licensing GPT-3

By iwano@_84

  • Elon Musk voiced his discontent on Twitter that OpenAI — the AI research firm he helped found — is exclusively licensing its famous natural-language software GPT-3 to Microsoft.
  • “This does seem like the opposite of open. OpenAI is essentially captured by Microsoft,” Musk tweeted.
  • GPT-3 is able to generate text that looks natural enough to appear to have been written by a human.
  • Microsoft said others would still be able to access GPT-3 via an application programming interface.

It looks like Elon Musk is increasingly unhappy with OpenAI, the artificial-intelligence research firm he helped found five years ago.

Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it was exclusively licensing GPT-3, a natural-language AI-powered tool made by OpenAI.

The announcement was met with some dismay on Twitter from users who had thought OpenAI’s mission statement was to make technologies like GPT-3 widely available. Musk, who cofounded

OnePlus Oxygen OS 11 Android 11 oxygen os

Oxygen OS 11 is quickly making its way to OnePlus’ smartphones after Google made Android 11 public. The OS offers the latest Android features combined with OnePlus’ in-house tweaks. However, the company hasn’t always had staunch control over the quality and speed of its smartphone software. In fact, OnePlus’ software started out closely tied to the ROM modding scene back in 2014.

If you’re interested in OnePlus’ humble beginnings or simply want to see how far the company’s software features have come, join us as we zip through the evolution of OnePlus’ smartphone software.


Breaking away from the mod scene

The OnePlus One shipped with Cyanogen OS as its operating system a commercially developed version of CyanogenMod. Back in the heyday of enthusiast Android spin-off versions, CyanogenMod was arguably the most popular community-developed custom ROM. The commercialization of the project as Cyanogen OS caused some controversy within the community,

Software program “Allchemy” helps identify prebiotic synthesis of biochemical compounds from primordial precursors

A team of researchers working in the Institute of Organic Chemistry’s lab at the Polish Academy of Sciences has developed a software product to aid in discovering the chemical processes that led to the development of life on Earth. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their software program, which they have named Allchemy, and how it is used.


Scientists have been puzzling over the chemical processes that led to life on Earth for decades, but thus far, have not come much closer to understanding how simple chemicals in the primordial soup could have led to biologic molecules. Prior research has helped chemists identify some of the likely ingredients at play, such as methane, water and ammonia, and they have studied reactions between them that might produce precursors of molecules that could have interacted with other chemicals to produce living molecules. But the work grows

By iwano@_84

Cisco has alerted customers using its IOS and ISO XE networking gear software to apply updates for 34 flaws across 25 high-severity security advisories.
