- Elon Musk voiced his discontent on Twitter that OpenAI — the AI research firm he helped found — is exclusively licensing its famous natural language software GPT-3 to Microsoft.
- "This does seem like the opposite of open. OpenAI is essentially captured by Microsoft," Musk tweeted.
- GPT-3 is able to generate text that looks natural enough to have been written by a human.
The quality of the text generated by GPT-3 is so high that it is difficult to distinguish from that written by a human..."

The automaker says that just with the new cell form factory they would increase range by 16%.
However, Tesla didn’t reveal improvement in energy density and instead focus on the form factor.
It also results in a 14% reduction in cost per kWh — again at the cell form factor level only.
"Tesla announced that it will dramatically reduce the cost of its battery cells and packs — which means the company’s new goal is a $25,000 electric car. The company’s CEO Elon Musk said its new “tabless” battery cells, as well as by changing the materials inside the cell, will allow Tesla to “halve” the price per kilowatt-hour, which will make electric cars roughly the same price as combustion engine ones."

Amazon's new Halo wearable can track activity, health, and emotions
Amazon Halo is really pushing user trust to the limit. The device, which costs $99.99 and also requires a subscription fee of $3.99 a month for the advanced features, tracks heart rate, steps, and body composition. But it also tracks your emotions based on your tone of voice. To be clear, users have to opt into the feature, and it isn't always listening. Instead, it is an intermittent check on the wearer's emotional state that gets reported back to the user. Basically, it has the potential to become a giant pool of training data so Amazon's Alexa can gain some emotional intelligence.

WS has recently made AWS Wavelength zones in San Francisco and Boston available to provide a subset of their computing services on Verizon datacenters. The new zones will allow developers to build applications that can benefit from the ultra-low latency of the mobile carriers.
Only a small subset of EC2 instance types and classes are available for edge workloads: t3.medium, t3.xlarge, r5.2xlarge and g4dn.2xlarge. Developers can create EBS volumes and run Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, Amazon EKS clusters and Amazon ECS clusters to manage their instances and Kubernetes clusters.
