This week’s Generative AI News (GAIN) rundown covers two weeks of news. Eric Schwartz of Voicebot.ai and I jammed in 16 different news stories and a few other tidbits in this double roundup.
Featured stories this week include:
OpenAI Economics - OpenAI is generating a lot of revenue from ChatGPT Plus subscriptions and API usage by software providers. However, the popularity of Azure OpenAI Service is siphoning off many of those API customers as they move into production on Azure, which means lower margins for the LLM kings.
SEO in Crisis? - Generative AI search is about to reap substantial change in the SEO industry, and we consider the analysis of a Texas A&M marketing professor’s warning that the current crop of SEO consultants may be facing extinction.
Foundation Models and Transparency - Stanford researchers have a new 100-point generative AI model transparency checklist. We consider the good, the bad, and the ugly of this endeavor.
Links to the stories we covered this week are included below.
