Today’s trending AI news stories

Scale AI Just Released New Research Uncovering Significant ‘overfitting’ Of Certain LLMs On Popular AI Benchmarks

Scale AI introduces GSM1k, a benchmark for measuring reasoning in large language models (LLMs). It addresses the opacity of model decision-making by comparing performance on novel and known data. Scale uncovered a problem with a lot of LLMs being trained directly on the benchmarking material, like cramming for a test without legitimately attempting to understand the core concepts of the benchmark’s material.

Through systematic comparison, researchers identify varying levels of overfitting and reasoning across models. This research is vital for sectors like healthcare and finance, where transparent models are imperative. By distinguishing between genuine reasoning and memorization, GSM1k guides interpretability methods and advances machine learning. Read more.

Open-source Model Prometheus 2 Can Evaluate Other Language Models Nearly As Well As GPT-4

Prometheus 2, an open-source language model, has been optimized to evaluate other models, rivaling commercial counterparts like GPT-4. This enhancement enables researchers and developers to objectively measure language model performance and receive detailed feedback for targeted improvements, fostering continuous enhancement in quality and reliability.

Developed by Seungone Kim's team at KAIST AI, Prometheus 2 addresses the lack of transparency and affordability associated with proprietary models, providing independent and transparent evaluations for all. By mastering direct evaluation and pairwise comparison methods, Prometheus 2 supports diverse evaluation criteria, facilitating the optimization of language models for specific applications such as medical advice chatbots.

X Launches Stories, Delivering News Summarized By Grok AI

X (formerly Twitter) is shaking things up with Grok Stories, a new feature powered by Elon Musk's AI chatbot Grok. Grok curates personalized summaries of trending stories in the Explore section, offering Premium subscribers bite-sized insights alongside each hot topic on the For You tab. Unlike Twitter's past, limited attempts, Grok dives into all major news using AI, providing a comprehensive overview.

The Premium subscription, starting at $8 per month, grants access to Grok, making it a selling point for X. However, Grok’s reliance on X conversations for news summaries raises concerns about the content’s accuracy. Despite controversy, Grok’s Stories represent a novel approach to news delivery, potentially impacting traditional news consumption habits or your friendly neighborhood AI newsletters. Read more.
