www.nature.com AI models collapse when trained on recursively generated data - Nature

 Analysis shows that indiscriminately training generative artificial intelligence on real and generated content, usually done by scraping data from the Internet, can lead to a collapse in the ability of the models to generate diverse high-quality output.

Intel breaks silence on 13th and 14th-gen Raptor Lake desktop CPU instability issues
  • It's not the whole story. After Intel's press release about voltage issues and an upcoming microcode patch, they quietly snuck out an admission that there is an oxidization problem after all. It smells like they're trying to downplay that and avoid having to replace their faulty CPUs.

    Unreal Engine supervisor at ModelFarm blasts 50% failure rate with Intel chips — company switching to AMD's Ryzen 9 9950X, praises single-threaded performance
  • I upgraded my main PC from a Ryzen 5 3600 to a Ryzen 9 5950X a year or two ago and it was completely straightforward. The CPU runs cool too. The next upgrade will be trickier but I'm definitely sticking with AMD unless they do something as bad as what intel is doing.

    A CVE in the universal Turing machine from 1967, that doesn't matter
  • Yep. Hopefully their Win95 machines are very well protected from the rest of the network. Seems a little doubtful though.

    Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 machines won't be able to run any modern browsers or JavaScript, so that may protect them somewhat. I don't know if you can even run any modern antivirus/endpoint security software, or a software firewall, on Windows 95.
