November was a busy month in the AI world, with a number of major news stories. From investments in AI research to the release of cutting-edge AI-powered products, the month was full of exciting innovations.
In this blog post, we'll take a look at the top 5 AI stories that made waves in November and explore the implications for the future of AI technology.
GALACTICA - Meta AI language model trained on a novel high-quality scientific dataset called NatureBook, which consists of 48 million papers, textbooks and lecture notes, millions of compounds and proteins, scientific websites, and encyclopedias totaling 120 billion parameters.
Galactica is great for summarizing academic literature, solving math problems, generating Wiki articles, writing scientific code, annotating molecules and proteins, and more.
The model a lot of attention and criticism from the community, words: “dangerous”, and “biased”ecause of that, 3 days, it was introduced Meta AI pulled down Galactica without explanation.
