Let AI build your startup ideas
PLUS: AI may kill all humans (OpenAI CEO)
Good morning human brains, welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.
Here’s what we’ve got:
Github & GPT-4 will build your ideas for you 🧑💻

Hiring AI Engineers 👨💻
Two years ago, GitHub shook hands with OpenAI and gave developers Copilot, an AI programming assistant built on GPT-3. Ever since it’s helped them write almost half their code and build 55% faster.
Github’s Copilot X
Now, Github’s upping its arsenal with Copilot X, a new assistant built on GPT-4 that’s faster and dramatically more precise.
Tech people seem to (mostly) be on board because tools like Copilot and GPT-4 are making them quicker.
But the best part? GPT-4 is more than just an assistant, and non-technical people are using it to make chrome extensions and prototypes with A-tier UI already.
Everyone’s laughing at all the ChatGPT threads, but I (a man who can’t code), just built and shipped a functioning and IMO useful Chrome Extension in ~45 minutes using just that and @Replit - it was the weirdest feeling ever.

How you can capitalize💸: Have an idea for a software product you’ve been sitting with for a while? This is your chance. If you can’t code it helps to know someone that can, but GPT-4 and other AI helper tools will let you build and iterate faster than you ever might have otherwise anyway.

NVIDIA’s Genius Positioning ⛹️♀️
As more companies strap up for the AI race every day, Nvidia has become the go-to supplier of the GPUs putting them on the tracks.
To keep up with demand, it’s partnering with cloud service providers to offer AI-as-a-service, meaning businesses can access Nvidia's tech from anywhere with just their browsers.
Last week it announced AI Foundations, a project that allows companies to build their own AI models (think custom business chatbots based on GPT-4) using Nvidia’s most powerful cloud computers.
NVIDIA’s AI demos
What this means: irrespective of AI adoption going up, down, or in circles, semiconductor companies like Nvidia come out on top. They’re building the field everyone’s playing on.
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA
Steering Away From AI Dystopia 🪐
Sam Altman was on the Lex Friedman Podcast yesterday.
In response to computer scientist Eliezer Yudkowsky’s warnings, he admitted there’s a real possibility of AI destroying humans, and that acknowledging so is probably the first step in stopping it.
He also admits OpenAI hasn’t discovered a way to make a super powerful AI aligned with humans just yet, and it may be time for governments to step in to legislate the process.
The big question here: Is AI moving too fast for its own good?

BUZZWORD OF THE DAY
GPT (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer): a large AI learning model (LLM) that can take multiple text inputs and process them together rather than in isolation, so that word order and context can be captured too. ChatGPT is one example of a GPT.
TWEET OF THE DAY
A FAANG-engineer-turned-indiepreneur used GPT-4 to make a fully functional iOS app from scratch, and Apple decided to approve it. His first prototype only took five minutes.
I asked GPT-4 to build me a complete app from scratch - and now it's on the store. Link in 👇 https://t.co/ODlfrcAwm0
