wtf is going on with Microsoft and OpenAI of late?! LIke Microsoft bought into OpenAI for some shocking $10bn USD, then Sam Altman gor fired, now he’s been hired by Microsoft to run up a new “AI” division. wtf/! seriously?! 🤔 #Microsoft #OpenAI #Scandal
@prologic the going theory is that openAI announced a new product that pretty much blew up the project of one of the board members. So that board member got 3 others to vote to fire Sam.
@email@example.com And what fucking useless ass project would that happen to be?! 🤔 I must have missed that.
@firstname.lastname@example.org the new product was GPTs. A way to create tailored bots for specific use cases. https://openai.com/blog/introducing-gpts (fun fact: I did an internal hackathon where we made something like this for $work onboarding. And I won a prize!)
The competed project is poe https://quorablog.quora.com/Introducing-creator-monetization-for-Poe which is basically the same idea. Make a AI bot tailored to a specific domain of knowledge. And monitize it.
The timing fits very well as openAI announced it just a few weeks ago.
@email@example.com I see I see 🤔 So who came up with the idea first then? 🤔 It doesn’t sound particularly novel nor unique 😆
@prologic its not.. There are going to be 1000s of copy cat apps built on AI. And they will all die out when the companies that have the AI platforms copy them. It happened all the time with windows and mac os. And iphone.. Like flashlight and sound recorder apps.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah innovation is kind of dead when you have to compete with the big tech Gia at 🤯😢 Even when you’re trying not to compete with them (FANG) 🤦♂️
