🏠 GPT-4 Goes Open-Source
And it's coming from you know who
Gm. I know I talked about football on Monday, but damn, if you’re a Jets fan, I am so, so, sorry. Even as a Patriots fan I can’t help but feel bad for Rodgers and the fanbase. If anyone needs to vent, my DMs are always open
BROUGHT TO YOU BY:
Meta’s Open-Source GPT-4
We’ve spent a lot of time in recent weeks talking about Meta’s AI exploits. And that’s for a good reason. They just keep releasing banger after banger:
That’s a lot of heat in a short amount of time.
But none of that compares to what Meta has cooking in the lab:
Naturally, details are hard to come by, but we do know that:
Meta will start training the model in early 2024.
They are acquiring the infrastructure necessary to make the models a reality (read: many more Nvidia chips).
Zuck wants the model to be open-source.
Besides being extremely cool, this whole shindig is savvy on Meta’s part for several reasons:
Open-sourcing the model will likely lead to developers improving it. Meta can then use the improved model in their own products. It’s basically free R&D.
If the model is used to create good products, fewer people will use Meta’s competitors. This is obviously ideal for Team Zuck.
Sign us up for this party.
The Big Picture: Meta may have been a bit late to the AI party, but they are definitely making noise now.
Get Hired Proactively At High Growth Startups
Growing companies are always looking for the right people to bring them from 0 to 1, and then to 1000. But it’s almost impossible to get in touch with the right person. After hours of looking through Crunchbase and LinkedIn, you’re still stuck with an empty email.

Let’s Go (TikTok) Shopping
I love TikTok. Basically everyone I know loves TikTok. We can easily spend the afternoon swiping and swiping and swiping.
Does it take up a good amount of my time? Yeah. But hey, at least it doesn’t take my money.
Oh wait, now it will.
That’s because TikTok has officially launched its in-app shopping feature.
Dubbed TikTok Shop, the new feature will add in-feed live shopping, product reviews, and marketing opportunities to the For You Page (FYP).
This is a big move for a lot of different demographics:
If you’re a TikTok addict, then you might now be spending money on this damn app.
If you’re a lover of pure social media, you have to just hope TikTok doesn’t go the way of Instagram. A FYP full of ads would just be…ugh.
If you’re in the e-commerce business, congrats; another big revenue stream might have just opened up.
If you’re a regulator, then you can’t love that TikTok will now be collecting people’s payment information.
In any case, as if you needed a reminder:
TikTok wears the crown.
The Bottom Line: The world’s most addicting app might have just become a bit more so.
What else is going on?
