1. 6 best practices to ace your data annotation game

The article “6 Best Practices to Ace Your Data Annotation Game” emphasizes the importance of data annotation for machine learning models and provides six tips for effective data annotation. These include setting clear guidelines for annotators, using pre-annotation to reduce human error, conducting quality control checks, ensuring consistent labelling across annotators, providing regular feedback to annotators, and leveraging active learning to reduce annotation time and costs. Following these best practices can improve the accuracy and efficiency of data annotation, ultimately leading to better-performing machine learning models.

2. Workflows for data-centric AI

Traditionally, the machine learning (ML) cycle has focused on training, validation, and tuning of a model until the desired outcome is achieved. However, this approach is evolving towards Data-Centric AI, which places more emphasis on modifying the training dataset itself to improve model performance. This process, known as DataPrepOps, involves iterative adjustments to the data, such as sampling, filtering, and augmenting, to ensure that it aligns with the ML task and the desired outcomes. This article talks about workflows for Data-Centric AI for you to build efficient models.

In his blog post titled “The Age of AI Has Begun,” Bill Gates discusses the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and the potential benefits and challenges that come with it. He notes that AI has already had a significant impact on industries such as healthcare and agriculture, but also highlights concerns around job displacement and bias in AI systems. Gates emphasizes the need for responsible development and deployment of AI, with a focus on creating ethical frameworks and ensuring transparency. He concludes by stating that while there are certainly risks associated with AI, he believes that the benefits will ultimately outweigh them.

4. OpenAI announces ChatGPT successor GPT-4

Open AI has released the latest version of its AI chatbot ChatGPT called GPT-4. It can respond to images and process up to 25,000 words, eight times more than ChatGPT. There are concerns about it taking over many jobs. They claim to have spent six months on safety features on the new release. It will be initially available to ChatGPT plus subscribers and s already powering the Microsoft’s Bing Search engine platform. It has more advanced reasoning skills and has partnered with Duolingo and Be My Eyes to create AI chatbots.
