Stanford makes great advance with AI

https://newatlas.com/technology/stanford-alpaca-cheap-gpt/

Stanford's Alpaca AI performs similarly to the astonishing ChatGPT on many tasks but it's built on an open-source language model and cost less than US$600 to train up. It seems these godlike AIs are already frighteningly cheap and easy to replicate.
Six months ago, only researchers and boffins were following the development of large language models. But ChatGPT's launch late last year sent a rocket up humanity's backside: machines are now able to communicate in a way pretty much indistinguishable from humans. They're able to write text and even programming code across a dizzying array of subject areas in seconds, often of a very high standard. They're improving at a meteoric rate, as the launch of GPT-4 illustrates, and they stand to fundamentally transform human society like few other technologies could, by potentially automating a range of job tasks particularly among white-collar workers people might previously have thought of as impossible.

Many other companies notably Google, Apple, Meta, Baidu and Amazon, among others are not too far behind, and their AIs will soon be flooding into the market, attached to every possible application and device. Language models are already in your search engine if you're a Bing user, and they'll be in the rest soon enough. They'll be in your car, your phone, your TV, and waiting on the other end of the line any time you try to phone a company. Before too long, you'll be seeing them in robots.
