NVIDIA is one of the biggest players when it comes to the AI revolution. The world was SHOCKED and STUNNED as they always are with these announcements during their March keynote earlier this year in which they announced...
  • New incredibly powerful 'Blackwell' chip. Around 2-30 times as powerful as the previously used chips and consumes 25x less electricity and cost. These can be used to run trillion-parameter models and corporations that develop AI are already adopting these.
  • Project GR00T; a foundation model for humanoid robots that allows them to mimic human movement through literally just watching them.
  • Development of a new 6G cloud platform AI.
  • Among other things...
3 months later in the heat of June we get another slew of very interesting announcements such as...
  • Earth 2 - An Earth Simulator using AI to predict climate patterns with very high resolution.
  • Nvidia Inference Microservices (NIMs) - Pretrained, specialized AI models with software interfaces able to run on CUDA.
  • ACE Digital Humans - Digital humans running on the NIMs framework integrating several AI systems similar to GPT4o with the ability to input sight and sound and output AI-generated responses and speech; these digital humans will have AI avatars and agentic capabilities, replacing human workers (potentially).
  • Further Chip Developments - Alongside more information about new 'Blackwell' chips releasing this year they promise 'Blackwell Ultra' chips for 2025 and 'Rubin' chips for 2026 with ambitious computational capabilities.
All in all it seems like even if we don't get AGI by 2030 I still believe that there will be cataclysmic effects being felt by everyone by 2030 requiring UBI. We are not even halfway through the decade and we already have AI with agentic capabilities, super-duper serious automation opportunities for business owners to salivate over, the emergence of autonomous robots that can learn by observing humans, rapid chip developments and earth simulators coming into play.

They are being very vague on it

But I guess it uses video data for imitation learning then adds onto it with reinforcement learning using NVIDIA's GPUs? They're using a lot of acronyms I don't get lmao. Looks interesting though considering these models usually take a ton of power to train

Nvidia engineers have big brains, but... 28GB VRAM only on 5090s!? Dude, I want to run a finetuned Llama 3 70b model without having to spend two months of Western salary on SLi setup.

Updates:

Ya we keep getting new updates every 2 weeks or so. 2 weeks ago it was Google and their big announcement and around that time GPT4o also. Now NVIDIA. I don't see how anyone can claim we are stagnating or in an AI winter. Feels like we're heading toward Cyberpunk 2030s.

I am too poor :eek:
The best I can run locally right now is 10.7B models, if I want something with actual intelligence I have to hook up an Anthropic/OpenAI API. Although 10.7B models are good enough for roleplay atleast.

I wish I could run WizardLM 70B with large context on my GPU... but I only have 24GB.
