On March 2, Professor Qiu Xipeng, a developer of the MOSS language model at Fudan University and a natural language processing laboratory, recently predicted that in the next 5 to 10 years, people will accept general artificial intelligence as they accept search engines now.
He said that the positioning of MOSS is the most cutting-edge exploration in the field of natural language processing and even the field of general artificial intelligence: “Maybe the industry pays more attention to its landing performance, and we pay more attention to its next-generation development, that is, how to realize general artificial intelligence. “
Although MOSS is an order of magnitude smaller than ChatGPT in terms of parameter scale, Qiu Xipeng said that the purpose of developing the MOSS model is to explore and verify ChatGPT’s technical route on tens of billions of parameters, so as to prove that the Chinese team is not behind in technical implementation in foreign countries.
In terms of building MOSS data corpus, Qiu Xipeng said that the team has begun to construct some high-quality Chinese data by itself, but it still takes time.

On March 2, Apple rejected the email app BlueMail’s App Store update, citing concerns that its new ChatGPT-based AI features might generate inappropriate content for children.
Apple’s App Review Team believes that, considering the above issues, BlueMail should increase the user age rating to 17 and above, or set up a content filtering function.
BlueMail is currently set up for users ages 4 and up. BlueMail responded that the 17-and-over rating is for apps that may include offensive language, sexual content, etc., and that “this requirement is unfair” because “other apps with similar AI capabilities and no age restrictions have submitted to Apple users open to use”.

On March 2, YouTube’s new CEO Neal Mohan said in a letter to the YouTube community that he will launch AI creation tools for YouTube creators.
Users will then be able to “virtually swap out outfits in videos” or create “dreamlike movie scenes,” Mohan said.
Neal Mohan also emphasized that this AI function will have “thought-out guardrails” and “responsible acceptance of the protection measures of this technology”.
Even Microsoft itself admits that the new Bing is immature. And the way it perfected Bing was by inviting users on a waitlist to conduct a private beta.
This means that users who think they are enjoying Microsoft services are actually “guinea pigs” used by Microsoft to test AI.
Nathan Lambert, a research scientist at the AI company Huggingface, said that without these massive amounts of data provided by real people to help improve AI, these AI companies will be forced to spend hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars to competitors to obtain the text needed for training.
This is what Tesla is doing too. For example, it has been launching a beta version of fully autonomous driving for car owners to collect data to develop the eventual “full self-driving.”
Recently, Tesla had to recall more than 360,000 vehicles in the United States because of problems with its full self-driving test version.
According to a study by University of California professor Celeste Kidd, if people are exposed to the wrong content at the beginning of learning new information, this false impression may persist for a long time. And it is possible that AI is contributing to the spread of these misinformation.
Kidd gave a somewhat extreme example as a metaphor: “Imagine that you add some suspected carcinogens to public drinking water and want to see if it will cause cancer.” (Although you don’t know what the result will be, but wait until there are any Problems arise,) you are irreparable – so, now people have cancer.”
Still, Lambert says the fact that we’re all guinea pigs doesn’t mean the experiment shouldn’t be done. More importantly, everyone should be informed about the dangers of participating in experiments.
“I’d rather Microsoft do this experiment than a startup, because Microsoft will at least fix the problem when the media criticizes it. People better know that the dangers of artificial intelligence are coming.”
