🎥  How Andrej Karpathy Built an AI Recommendation System in a Weekend

At a hackathon in UC Berkeley, founding member of OpenAI Andrej Karpathy gave an incredible keynote. He goes over his story, from building game-playing programs to an AI recommendation engine. To find out how he built such complex ML models in a mere weekend, watch this video!

🧑‍🔬  Chemical General Intelligence and The World’s Smartest Keyboard

ChemDFM: Dialogue Foundation Model for Chemistry - You’ve heard of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), but what about Chemical General Intelligence (CGI)? The existence of specialized language/knowledge in the field of chemistry hinders the performance of general-domain LLMs in chemistry. To this end, this paper presents ChemDFM, the first LLM towards CGI—demystifying how chemicals work for everyone.

Proofread: Fixes All Errors with One Tap - This paper demonstrates Proofread, a novel Gboard feature powered by a server-side LLM, enabling seamless sentence- and paragraph-level corrections. To obtain quality models, the authors employ a two-stage tuning approach: Supervised Fine Tuning for foundational quality, followed by Reinforcement Learning for targeted refinement.

🏇 Liquid Neural Networks and AI Advancements in Finance

Liquid Neural Networks: Fluid, Flexible Neurons - Liquid neural networks improve upon traditional neural nets in unprecedented ways. With dynamic neurons and a suite of optimizations, liquid neural networks are pivotal to understand to keep up with the AI world. Here’s all you need to know.

AI in Finance: Money Making Machines - In 2016, long before the mainstream popularization of AI, JP Morgan Chase was looking for ways to boost their capabilities as a firm. Sure enough, they turned to Machine Learning. Here’s what they learned.
