Inflection AI announced the release of their next 2.5 model that will compete with the ChatGPT-4, but has high efficiency requiring 40% less compute to train. In today’s AI space, the word energy efficiency is important and significant because there was a recent article about how OpenAI consumes 17000 times the amount of electricity (daily) compared to an average US household. So even though this model does not beat ChatGPT, the big thing that is getting attention is the efficiency with which this happens. If you want to check out this new AI model, you can use their chatbot, which is called Pi on your mobile device or your browser. If you’re wondering who Inflection AI is, this is a company that’s backed by big names like Mustafa Suleyman, who was the co-founder of DeepMind, and also Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn.
