😡 Saleforce furious at OpenAI...

AI better than your Maths teacher! 🔢

Sponsored by

Happy Friday! Rejoice, you made it my friend.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and Sam Altman not seeing eye to eye…

And AI just embarrassed your maths teacher.

+ We have a prompt for that paper you need to finish…

Here is what you need to know about AI today.

Read time: 5 minutes


Salesforce CEO, Marc Benioff, has gone hard on AI companies allegedly snatching up intellectual property for their tech.

According to him, they’re playing fast and loose with training data, even swiping content from big shots like Time and the New York Times.

Who are they pointing fingers at?

Well… take a guess. OpenAI and Sam Altman are in the hotseat.

Time and other platforms are in talks to get a piece of that pie for their news content!

The New York Times is suing OpenAI for copyright for using their articles without a green light. 

It’s like the Wild West out here! 

Benioff is demanding AI companies play nice and throw some cash to content creators.

Though OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, isn’t stoked about this. 

He insists they aren’t poaching protected material and says training data isn’t as golden as some think!

Altman aims to doge any off-limits news content and is striking deals left and right. 

And there’s MORE! 

Benioff also threw shade at AI and elections, blaming social media and lax elections regulators

According to him, they haven’t done their homework. Could there be more drama coming soon? 🍿

Our View:

Maybe this will help resolve some of the AI copyright issues - if a deal can be hashed out.

Having trouble writing a paper with endless pages?

Give ChatGPT the role of a professor in linguistics and ask it to summarise your text using a specific tone of voice such as "academic" with the academic level that you need such as “Grade 11”.


If you thought you were good at geometry, think again. There’s an AI that probably puts your maths teacher to shame!

Meet AlphaGeometry, the new math-savvy AI that goes toe-to-toe with the very best. 

This artificial intelligence wizard recently showcased its skills in solving tough geometry problems.

Giving even the brainiacs at the International Mathematical Olympiad a run for their money! 

AlphaGeometry aced 25 out of 30 geometry problems from the Olympiad, beating some of the best mathematicians in the world.

Bringing language into maths

Now let’s talk about language. 

Traditional math AIs often struggle with making sense of their explanations, leading to some serious head-scratching. 

But AlphaGeometry flips the script! 

Instead of relying on regular language, it has its own programming language that fits humans and bots.

This makes answers for both entities easy to understand, so no more confusing mumbo-jumbo!

The brains behind AlphaGeometry took a bold approach, they cooked up a batch of 100 million proofs to train the model.

A combined approach

One key ingredient that sets AlphaGeometry apart is its combined approach

It mixes statistical savvy with some serious symbolic reasoning. Like a math smoothie.

While AlphaGeometry is rocking the geometry world, it's not quite ready to snatch the title of math genius just yet

Mathematicians, your jobs are safe – for now.

AlphaGeometry might tackle some undergrad-level problems, but it's not diving into cutting-edge research-level math anytime soon.

AI is good at maths - who’d of thought it?
