🦾 Boston Dynamics presents a new version of the Atlas robot

Boston Dynamics unveiled a new version of its Atlas robot. The robot is fully electric and designed for real-world applications. It has an impressive dexterity and agility.

The following short video shows the capabilities of Atlas:

Boston Dynamics wants to use Atlas in industry use cases. Initially, the robot will be used at Hyundai (Hyundai is invested in Boston Dynamics). Hyundai wants to build the next generation of automotive manufacturing capabilities and provide a perfect testing ground for the new Atlas robot.

You can learn more about the new electric Atlas in the official blog post.

✍🏽 What is your opinion on human-like robots?

Our thoughts

Boston Dynamics has more than a decade of experience in robotics. We have been watching the demos for years and are always impressed. We think that such robots can be used very well in industrial use cases such as logistics.

In addition, such robots can also be used in high-risk environments. It is essential to use the robots for peaceful and beneficial applications and not for military purposes, although this probably cannot be avoided.

Humanity can benefit from AI and robotics if we use them in the right way!

💬 Meta releases Llama 3

Meta introduced its new large language model (LLM) Llama 3. According to Meta, it is the most capable open-source LLM on the market. This release includes pretrained and instruction-fine-tuned language models with 8B and 70B parameters.

The Llama 3 models are available on HuggingFace, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and other platforms. Llama 3 demonstrates state-of-the-art performance on a wide range of industry benchmarks. In the following, you can see some benchmark results.

In the coming months, Meta also plans to publish bigger models of Llama 3 (models with over 400B parameters) with new capabilities, longer context windows, and enhanced performance. In addition, they will share the Llama 3 research paper.

Llama 3 is integrated into various apps through the Meta AI assistant, available on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and the website.

Meta is rolling out the Meta AI assistant in more than a dozen countries outside of the US. Users will have access to Meta AI in Australia, Canada, Ghana, Jamaica, Malawi, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Other countries are to follow.

Our thoughts

According to the benchmark results, Llama 3 is one of the best open-source models of their class. Meta's Llama 3 achieves impressive benchmark results, and the largest model is already waiting to be released.

Many people have limited experience with AI. Now, Meta has started to integrate Llama 3 into its products (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger). Soon, billions of people will be using Llama 3 every day.

With Grok 1.5V you can analyze images, interact with complex diagrams, answer questions about images, and much more!

In addition, xAI has developed a new RealWorldQA benchmark to measure real-world spatial understanding. According to the blog post of xAI, Grok-1.5V outperforms Gemini Pro 1.5 and GPT-4V on this benchmark.

Our thoughts

Grok often gets lost in the LLM discussion, however Grok seems to have impressive vision functionality. By the way, Grok is an open-source model. Maybe it's time to pay more attention to Grok.
