  • OpenAI is restarting its robotics research group - Co-founder Wojciech Zaremba said: “I actually believe quite strongly in the approach that the robotics [team] took in that direction, but from the perspective of AGI [artificial general intelligence], I think that there was actually some components missing.

  • Women in AI: Sarah Myers West says we should ask, ‘Why build AI at all?’ - Sarah Myers West is managing director at the AI Now Institute, an American research institute studying the social implications of AI and policy research that addresses the concentration of power in the tech industry.

Read Liz's blog post.

  • Texas Utility Stock Powers Past Nvidia in 300% AI-Fueled Rally - The demand to feed the engines of artificial intelligence has helped vault shares of one of the largest US power producers, Vistra Corp., higher even than Nvidia Corp.
