Today’s trending AI news stories

OpenAI Opens Up ChatGPT for Access Without an Account

OpenAI simplified access to ChatGPT's basic functions by removing the signup requirement. This allows anyone to interact with the AI without registration.

The update aligns with OpenAI's goals of broader AI access, particularly to students. Advanced features require a ChatGPT Plus subscription. While accountless users miss functionalities like chat history saving, OpenAI prioritizes privacy with opt-out options for conversation data used in model training. Read more.

Apple Researchers Develop AI that can 'See' and Understand Screen Context

Apple researchers introduced ReALM (Reference Resolution As Language Modeling), an AI system designed to understand ambiguous references within conversations and on-screen elements.

ReALM tackles this challenge by converting it into a language modeling problem, leveraging the power of large language models. This approach, coupled with the reconstruction of screen layouts based on identified elements, generates a textual representation that aids in comprehending visual context. Compared to existing methods and even the advanced GPT-4 model, ReALM demonstrates significant improvements, particularly in handling on-screen references.

Apple likely has plans to allow ReALM to “read” context on your screen, and be able to perform AI functions by analyzing the displayed data, possibly moving one step closer to fully automated agents.

However, the system relies on automated screen parsing, which has limitations. Future advancements require integrating computer vision and multi-modal techniques for handling complex visual references. Read more.

Chatbot Outperformed Physicians in Clinical Reasoning in Head-to-Head Study

A new study suggests that ChatGPT-4 may be able to outperform doctors in clinical reasoning tasks. Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) used a standardized test (r-IDEA score) to assess how ChatGPT-4 compared to 21 attending physicians and 18 residents in analyzing medical data.

While the AI achieved higher scores overall, it also exhibited more instances of incorrect reasoning compared to residents. This underscores the potential of AI to augment human clinical reasoning rather than replace it entirely. Read more.
