A significant advancement in AI research has been made with the unveiling of "Hala Point," the most extensive neuromorphic system in the world, by Intel at Sandia National Laboratories, with over ten times the neuron capacity and up to 12 times faster than Intels Loihi 2 CPU powers earlier systems like Pohoiki Springs, Hala Point. This breakthrough combines braininspired learning capabilities with deep learning efficiency to meet the growing computational expenses of AI models. Hala Point surpasses 15 trillion operations per second per watt, matching or exceeding GPU and CPU designs in computing efficiency. Hala Point paves the way for revolutionary developments in the application of AI, with applications ranging from scientific research to logistics and smart city infrastructure management.

With the launch of this new function, Meta AI is expanding its capabilities across several nations on WhatsApp by allowing users to create photos and movies straight within chats. It is still under testing, though the function is only available to a small number of customers in India. Using the most recent Llama 3 model, users may describe scenes or concepts, and the AI will visualise them as they write. This results in realtime picture and video production. In contrast to others, this method enables ongoing improvement as users provide more information. Meta welcomes user input to make improvements even better. With the launch of Llama 3, Meta hopes to improve its AI portfolio and establish itself as a frontrunner among alternatives available for free. Read More..

Google, an Alphabet company, stated on Thursday that it will strengthen its artificial intelligence portfolio by combining teams from its Research and DeepMind divisions dedicated to developing AI models. The Responsible AI teams will move from Research to DeepMind, putting them in closer proximity to the creation and scalability of AI models. Their concentration is on safe AI development. This action is in line with requests for technology regulation and the growing concern over AI safety on a worldwide scale. Google paused its picturegenerating capabilities after DeepMind, wellknown for its contributions to Googles sophisticated AI model Gemini, came under fire for prior imagegeneration errors. Despite recent layoffs and budget cuts, Google is investing in AI and automation, with CEO Sundar Pichai announcing plans to offer a series of AI models in 2024. Read More..

Surpassing market estimates, Alaska Air Group expects better profitability for the current quarter, driven by a rebound in business travel demand. Although the grounding of its 737 MAX 9 aircraft caused a setback, Alaska had a lower loss for the first quarter. Shane Tackett, chief financial officer, emphasised the surprisingly positive trend in corporate travel expenditures, indicating a more solid forecast for the coming year. The airline raised its previous projection of $3 to $5 a share to $3.25 to $5.25 for fullyear earnings. Still, worries about rising gasoline prices persist, which has led to a review of the hedging programme. Alaska is hopeful despite obstacles, projecting secondquarter earnings that will be above analyst projections. Read More..
