Earlier this year, Satya Nadella hammered out a deal that surprised everyone outside his inner circle at Microsoft. Mr. Nadella, Microsoft’s chief executive, had his eyes on a Silicon Valley start-up called Inflection AI. The company’s chief executive, Mustafa Suleyman, was one of the founders of the pioneering artificial intelligence company DeepMind. Microsoft still shelled out more than $650 million to license Inflection’s technology, hired most of its staff and put Mr. Suleyman in charge of a more than $12 billion chunk of Microsoft’s business. It was, to put it mildly, risky. · 2 h sedan

Research on Bayesian information criterion part1(Machine Learning 2024)Monodeep Mukherjee·FollowJust now--Photo by Tiffany Tertipes on UnsplashOn uncertainty-penalized Bayesian information criterionAuthors: Pongpisit Thanasutives, Ken-ichi FukuiAbstract: The uncertainty-penalized information criterion (UBIC) has been proposed as a new model-selection criterion for data-driven partial differential equation (PDE) discovery. In this paper, we show that using the UBIC is equivalent to employing the conventional BIC to a set of overparameterized models derived from the potential regression models of different complexity measures. The result indicates that the asymptotic property of the UBIC and BIC holds indifferently. △ · 3 h sedan

Imagine a future where earning a doctorate or even a Nobel Prize becomes more attainable. This seemingly outlandish idea may soon be a reality thanks to OpenAI’s latest project, codenamed Strawberry. Formerly known as Q*, Strawberry aims to overcome the limitations of current AI models in tackling complex science and math problems due to their subpar reasoning skills and tendency to “hallucinate” or generate false information. Addressing AI’s Hallucinations Large language models, while proficient in summarizing text, composing poetry, and explaining complex concepts, often struggle with common sense reasoning and logical fallacies. They sometimes fabricate information due to being trained on incomplete or biased data. Strawberry seeks to remedy this by enabling AI to generate its own training data, thereby enhancing reasoning abilities and aligning its understanding more closely with human cognition. This could potentially revolutionize research by solving previously intractable problems. The Reliance Gambit: Taking on Decathlon in the Sports Retail Arena Reliance, a major player in India’s sports industry, has its sights set on rivalling global sports retail giants like Decathlon. With a strong foothold in sports ownership, streaming, and event management through RISE Worldwide Limited, Reliance is now venturing into sports retail. Leveraging its vast retail network and the growing demand for sports and fitness products in India, Reliance aims to establish a dominant presence in this lucrative market. Reliance’s competitive advantage stems from India’s FDI (foreign direct investment) rules, which restrict multi-brand retail. While global brands like Decathlon navigate these regulations, Reliance can capitalize on the situation. Additionally, with the Indian government expressing interest in hosting the 2036 Olympics, Reliance has ample time to solidify its position and potentially become a major sponsor, thereby expanding its global reach. The Silver Lining of a Declining Global Population Contrary to concerns about a declining global population, experts suggest that this trend could present opportunities for economic and environmental improvement. Investments in technology and education can compensate for a shrinking workforce, while increased female participation in the labor market can help bridge gender gaps. Moreover, a smaller population translates to a reduced carbon footprint, offering a potential solution to the climate crisis. The developments in AI through Strawberry and Reliance’s ambitious foray into the sports retail market signal a dynamic and transformative future. Additionally, the potential benefits of a declining global population underscore the importance of adapting to changing demographics and embracing sustainable practices. · 4 h sedan
Most of the world´s wealthiest hedge fund managers are investing heavily in AI. And they especially like two AI stocks.´Follow the money.´ That phrase gained notoriety during the Watergate scandal five decades ago. However, it could be useful for investors today looking for stocks to buy. Much of the big money has poured into artificial intelligence (AI) stocks over the last two years. Nvidia has been an especially significant beneficiary of this trend, with its shares skyrocketing over 9x since the beginning of 2023. But where would following the money lead investors now? Here are billionaire hedge fund managers´ two favorite AI stocks -- and Nvidia isn´t one of them. The top hedge fund billionaires Forbes ranked the wealthiest hedge fund managers of 2023. The top 10 were: Rank Manager Hedge Fund Net Worth (as of 3/10/23) 1 Ken Griffin Citadel $35 billion 2 Jim Simons Renaissance Technologies $28.1 billion 3 Ray Dalio Bridgewater Associates $19.1 billion 4 David Tepper Appaloosa Management $18.5 billion 5 Steve Cohen Point72 Asset Management $17.5 billion 6 Carl Icahn Icahn Enterprises $17.5 billion 7 Michael Platt BlueCrest Capital Management $16 billion 8 Israel Englander Millennium Management $11.5 billion 9 Chase Coleman Tiger Global Management $8.5 billion 10 David Shaw D.E. Shaw & Co. $7.9 billion Jim Simons has since passed away, although his Renaissance Technologies hedge fund remains active. The net worths of the other nine hedge fund managers have changed somewhat since last year, but they´re all still multibillionaires. Most of these billionaire hedge fund managers have invested heavily in AI. Carl Icahn stands out as a notable exception. None of Icahn Enterprises´ holdings are AI-related. Michael Platt´s BlueCrest Capital also has no AI stocks among its top positions. Billionaire hedge fund managers´ two favorite AI stocks However, two AI stocks, in particular, are arguably the favorites of the other billionaire hedge fund managers. Amazon (AMZN -0.29%) ranked in the top five holdings of seven of the 10 richest hedge fund managers on Forbes´ list based on their latest regulatory filings. Microsoft (MSFT -0.25%) wasn´t too far behind, landing in the top five for half the 10 wealthiest hedge fund managers. Steve Cohen and Israel England like Amazon the most. The e-commerce and cloud services leader is the largest holding for Cohen´s Point72 Asset Management and England´s Millennium Management. Amazon is the second-largest holding for David Tepper´s Appaloosa Management. Microsoft ranks as the No. 1 position for David Shaw´s D.E. Shaw & Co. It´s the second-largest holding for Chase Coleman´s Tiger Global Management. And while the tech giant isn´t Ken Griffin´s biggest position for his Citadel fund, Microsoft is his top AI stock. Runners up Although Nvidia wasn´t one of billionaire hedge managers´ top two favorite AI stocks, it was a close runner-up. The graphics processing unit (GPU) maker was in the top five holdings for four of Forbes´ 10 richest hedge fund managers. Perhaps surprisingly, though, Nvidia wasn´t the No. 1 AI stock for any of them. Meta Platforms wasn´t too far behind either. It ranked in the top five holdings for three of the individuals on Forbes´ list. Meta is the largest position for Coleman´s Tiger Global Management. Should you buy Amazon and Microsoft too? No one should buy a stock only to follow in the footsteps of billionaire investors. However, I think Amazon and Microsoft have a lot going for them. Amazon is the world´s largest cloud services provider. AI should provide a long-term tailwind for the company´s Amazon Web Services unit. Amazon is also using AI extensively in its e-commerce operations to increase efficiency and profitability. Microsoft continues to reap the rewards from its partnership with ChatGPT creator OpenAI. It has integrated OpenAI´s GPT-4 throughout its products. The company is the second-largest cloud service provider and should benefit from the same AI tailwind as Amazon. As customers continue to move to the cloud to build and deploy AI models, Amazon´s and Microsoft´s revenue and earnings should grow significantly. Share prices tend to rise with earnings growth over the long term. I view Amazon and Microsoft as great AI stocks to buy right now. Just follow the AI money. · 5 h sedan
