Top 5 stories of the week: Nvidia and OpenAI updates, 2023 cybersecurity predictions, and more

Check out the on-demand sessions from the Low-Code/No-Code Summit to learn how to successfully innovate and gain efficiencies by improving and scaling citizen developers. look now.


As we enter December, marking the end of the year, and begin to anticipate what’s on the horizon for the tech industry as we approach 2023, experts from various companies have unveiled their predictions, insights and even a preview of upcoming business novelties.

Even in the midst of a possible recession, it’s clear that artificial intelligence (AI) experts expect innovation to continue, especially when it comes to generative AI. In fact, this week, Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia, shared insights into the expansive use cases that generative AI can provide for the metaverse, including the growing demand to populate the virtual world with 3D assets and graphics.

In a similar vein, OpenAI, the company behind the generative AI tools DALL-E and GPT-3, noted this week that it is working on a new AI-based language model that will be part of the GPT-3 family. Reportedly, the model, GPT-3.5, will be able to handle more complex instructions and in turn produce higher quality results.

Advances in AI in the medical field have also been in the news this week. Nvidia announced that it is working to better integrate AI models into clinical workflows and also aims to simplify medical imaging – an area the Harvard Medical School AI research team is also working on separately. .

Along with the many technological advancements in the industries also come with discussions of cybersecurity vulnerabilities. 2022 has been a year of many victories and also of worries for IT and security professionals. Just as a breach of the Twitter API exposed the information of 5.4 million users, which was recently made freely available by hackers, security continues to be an ever-changing landscape with changing targets. rapidly. To better understand the biggest threats, VentureBeat spoke with 31 CISOs from companies like Google, IBM, Microsoft, AWS and dozens more about what they’re paying close attention to as they approach the new year.

Here are more of our top 5 tech stories of the week:

  1. How generative AI could create assets for the metaverse
    Jensen Huang, CEO of AI and graphics chip maker Nvidia, believes that generative AI will be transformational and is just getting started. One of its biggest applications could be with the metaverse, which has huge content demands as developers need to populate virtual worlds with 3D assets. Companies like Stable Diffusion, Promethean AI, and Ludo AI use these technologies to automatically generate artwork and other assets for gaming and metaverse apps.

    Many metaverse companies are hoping that generative AI will provide them with the resources to help them build their world. Huang thinks you’ll see progress as you enter more and more prompts — such as text to flesh out a concept — and the concept imagery gets better and better.


  1. OpenAI releases ChatGPT and GPT-3.5 series as GPT-4 rumors fly
    While GPT-4 rumors are flying around NeurIPS 2022 this week in New Orleans (including rumors that details about GPT-4 will be revealed there), OpenAI has managed to make a lot of news in the meantime.

    On Monday, the company announced a new model in the GPT-3 family of AI-powered large language models (LLMs), text-davinci-003, part of what it calls the “GPT-3.5 series.” , which would improve upon its predecessors by handling more complex instructions and producing longer, higher-quality content.


  1. Twitter API security breach exposes data of 5.4 million users
    In July this year, cybercriminals began selling the user data of over 5.4 million Twitter users on a hacking forum after exploiting an API vulnerability disclosed in December 2021.

    Recently, a hacker released this information for free, just as other researchers reported a breach affecting millions of accounts in the EU and US.


  1. The future of AI and medical imaging, from Nvidia to Harvard
    Nvidia announced this week at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting that MONAI, an Nvidia-accelerated open-source medical imaging AI framework, makes it easier to integrate AI models into workflows. clinical work with MONAI Application Packages (MAP), delivered via MONAI Deploy.

    Nvidia and King’s College London launched MONAI in April 2020 to simplify AI medical imaging workflows. This makes it possible to transform raw imaging data into interactive digital twins to improve analysis or diagnosis, or guide surgical instruments. The development and adoption of the platform now has over 600,000 downloads, half of them in the last six months.


  1. 31 CISOs share their security priorities and forecasts for 2023
    2022 has been a pivotal year in the cyber threat landscape. Securing the software supply chain and open source software ecosystem, implementing zero trust, and educating employees about social engineering risks and phishing attempts are just a few. areas that CISOs assess to mitigate potential risks.

    Executives from Google, Microsoft, AWS, IBM and more spoke to VentureBeat about what they expect for the cybersecurity industry in the coming year and what concerns them going forward.
