Inflection AI's has launched Inflection-2, a Large Language Model (LLM) which rivals OpenAI's GPT-4 in specific performance tests. This new model appears to trail slightly in tasks involving coding, mathematics, and reasoning, but it nonetheless marks a significant step forward for the company. 👏

A noteworthy aspect of Inflection-2 involves the significant computational power used to train it. With 5,000 NVIDIA H100 GPUs, Inflection AI's investment in the LLM mirrors the hefty technological commitment Google made for its PaLM 2 LLM. In fact, benchmark tests indicate Inflection-2 slightly outperforms PaLM 2, suggesting competiton is hotting up. 🎯

An upcoming project will see Inflection-2 incorporated into Inflection's personal assistant, Pi, giving non-technical users the chance to harness it. 💼

Your attention might also be drawn to Inflection AI's bold plan to develop a model 100 times the scale of Inflection-2 within the next year. This ambition, backed by over $1.3 billion funding from significant investors including Microsoft and Nvidia, showcases the firm's determination to compete head-on with OpenAI’s GPT-4. 💪

Market competition in the AI sector appears to be intensifying, with similar developments noted amongst other AI startups, including Anthropic's Claude 2.1 and Microsoft's Orca 2. However, this competition is unfolding in the shadow of copyright disputes involving Stability AI, OpenAI and others. 💥

Meanwhile, the demand for AI-skilled workers continues to soar, with approximately 73% of businesses prioritising hires in AI. Amazon's recent "AI Ready" partnership with Code.org and Udacity to provide AI skill training to 2 million adults and students by 2025 reflects the escalating demand for AI talent in the labor market. 🎓
