    Amazon unveiled its new Trainium2 and Graviton4 AI chips.

  • Q? Where have we heard that recently? 🤨❓

ChatGPT Voice is now free 🫥 💸

Last Monday, we reported on OpenAI firing Sam Altman, its CEO. Greg Brockman, OpenAI’s President, immediately resigned and 95% of the team agreed to leave and work at Microsoft.

It was a doozy 🔥

Oh boy. More OpenAI drama?

Actually, some good news you might have missed. The day before Sam Altman’s return, ChatGPT’s Voice feature became available to all users. Before now, ChatGPT’s Voice access was only available to Plus subscribers.

What does it do?

You can speak to it, and it will verbally respond to you. Your conversation will also be displayed in text on the chat screen. In OpenAI’s example, someone asked ChatGPT how many pizzas would be required for a group of 778 people.

How do I use it?

You just need to download the ChatGPT app for iOS/iPadOS or Android, open it up, and tap the headphone icon. You can choose from five different ChatGPT assistant voices - Ember, Sky, Breeze, Juniper, and Cove.

Does this mean I can Siri with ChatGPT?

Yes. If you have an iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max, you can set ChatGPT up as your voice assistant with your Action Button.

Is there a “but?”

Of course. The voice chatting option with ChatGPT is only available in the mobile app, not on the ChatGPT website.

Harvard data scientist upends the finance community with returns in this market.

The AI revolution has already begun to rewire Wall St, and its impact has been strongly felt in one growing marketing in particular. Because, thanks to a Harvard data scientist and his team, everyday people can now benefit from a previously “off-limits” investment.

The company that makes it possible is Masterworks, whose unique investment platform enables people to invest in blue-chip art for a fraction of the cost. Their proprietary database of art market returns provides an unrivaled quantitative edge in analyzing the art market.

With all 16 of its exits, Masterworks has achieved a profit, with recent exits delivering +17.8%, +21.5%, and +35.0% annualized net returns.

Amazon’s two new AI chips 🤖 🥠

In September, we reported on Amazon and Anthropic’s new partnership. Amazon invested $4 billion for 49 % ownership of Anthropic’s shares.

In October, we covered Amazon and IBM’s partnership expansion. IBM announced its plan to train 10,000 consultants on AWS’s generative AI services by the end of 2024.

What’s Amazon up to now?

Yesterday, Amazon introduced two new AI chips — the Graviton4 and the Trainium2.

Doesn’t everyone just use NVIDIA’s AI chips?

Yes. NVIDIA has about 75% of the market share on AI chips, but there is a huge shortage of AI chips and more competitors have emerged to fill the demand. Amazon claims that Anthropic, Databricks, Datadog, Epic, and more are early adopters of its new chips.

So, what’s so special about the Graviton4?

Amazon says that the Graviton4 is its new chip specifically for inferencing. Inferencing is when AI reasons and makes decisions based on the data it’s trained on.

Amazon says that its Graviton4 chip offers 30% better compute performance, 50% more cores, and 75% more memory bandwidth than the previous Graviton3.

It also claims the Graviton4 has encrypted hardware that offers enhanced security for AI training and data.

I see. What about the Trainium2?

This is Amazon’s new chip for training AI models. It claims it is four times faster and twice as energy-efficient than its first-generation Trainium chip. With 100,000 of these, Amazon can train a huge AI model with 300 billion parameters several weeks faster than before.

When can I get my sandwich grabbers on these?

Amazon says Graviton4 is currently in preview and will be available in the coming months.

Trainium2 won’t be available until some time next year.


Amazon launches a new chatbot, Q 🤨❓

On Monday, we reported on OpenAI’s Q* (pronounced Q-Star). It’s allegedly one of the factors that led to Sam Altman’s firing.

(Pronounced Q).

It’s trained on 17 years of AWS knowledge and answers questions about AWS services.

What is Q?

Q is a chatbot that can analyze data from various sources, including business-specific data, to answer questions and provide solutions about whatever data you give it.

It can perform actions like creating service tickets, updating dashboards, and more.

Why would I use this?

You can chat, generate content, and train Q on your business’s data.

You can also connect apps like Salesforce, Gmail, and more to it. It indexes the data you give it and “learns” aspects of your business like its structure, core concepts, products, and more.

How much does it cost?

It’s available for $20 per year.
