"The recent push to bring open-source LLMs has done a lot to revive the promise of collaborative efforts and shared power that was the original promise of the internet," writes Ben Dickson. In related AI news: an AI-generated Drake x The Weeknd tune hits the charts (and gets taken down (but here it is)). Drake is not happy. Meanwhile, "the winner of a major photography award has refused his prize after revealing his work was in fact an AI creation." Via SAIL, here's a glossary of AI terms in education. Also, a guide to understanding LLMs (some good information here). And finally, Re-memory: scam or soulmate?

Teaching Assistant." Also, there are suggestions that "many Chinese have begun using ChatGPT to do their ideology homework." The 74 says schools must embrace chatGPT.
