Tech Titans’ Week in Review: Musk, Zuckerberg, and AI

In this post:

  • More than half of the content on Instagram and 30% of the posts presented on Facebook are generated by AI, according to Zuckerberg.
  • X user comically comments on a photo of Greg Brockman, the president of ChatGPT’s parent company, and Sam Altman, was shared by Jensen Huang, the Nvidia NVDA CEO.
  • Zuckerberg is skeptical of the success of Apple’s AR glasses and praises Meta’s smart glasses, Ray-Ban.

The week was filled with tech titans who hit the headlines, and the following are the highlights of the top stories that took place over the week.

Elon Musk’s Amusing Emoji Response

One instance is when an X user jokingly asked whether the former OpenAI chief scientist, Ilya Sutskever, was in the box when the photo of Greg Brockman, the president of ChatGPT’s parent company, and Sam Altman, was shared by Jensen Huang, the Nvidia NVDA CEO. 

Additionally, Brockman, the president of the parent company of ChatGPT, on Wednesday took to X, which used to be Twitter, and shared the photo with the tweet, “First NVIDIA DGX H200 in the world, hand-delivered to OpenAI and dedicated by Jensen ‘to advance AI, computing, and humanity.’”

After that, an X user comically commented. ‘tell the truth. Is Ilya in the box?’ which has received a response from the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, with a face with tears of joy emoji. The DGX H2000 is acclaimed to be the most powerful GPU in the world. The H200 GPU is the follow-up model to the much-lauded H100 GPU, with 1.8 times the memory capacity and 1.4 times the bandwidth of the previous model.

The user’s reference to Sutskever, OpenAI’s chief scientist, in the comment has rekindled curiosity about Sutskever’s puzzling disappearance. Sutskever hasn’t been seen publicly since his controversial “palace coup” in November.

Zuckerberg raises doubts about Apple’s Vision Pro.

During the first-quarter earnings call of Meta Platforms Inc., its CEO Mark Zuckerberg was doubtful about the popularity of augmented reality (AR) glasses in the mainstream, particularly those without “full holographic displays,” taking a veiled swipe at Apple Inc.’s Vision Pro. His disbelief toward the possibility of AR glasses, particularly those without “full holographic displays,” became apparent during Meta’s first-quarter earnings call and was aimed at Apple Vision Pro.

Launched in September, Meta’s latest version of Ray-Ban smart glass comes with Meta AI, a camera, call-making capabilities, and built-in speakers. Zuckerberg also highlighted the novelty of these glasses as a “pretty meaningful and growing platform sooner than then I would have expected so.” This is not the first time Zuckerberg has slammed the Apple Vision Pro. In February, he uploaded a video of a rival Apple device and claimed that Quest was “the better product.” 

AI’s Impact on Internet Content

During the first-quarter financial results announcement of Meta, Zuckerberg disclosed that more than half of the content on Instagram and 30% of the presented posts on Facebook are generated by AI, as previously reported by Cryptopolitan. 

The Meta CEO also disclosed that AI has also been an important factor in growing the value for advertisers with Meta’s AI-driven tools, Advantage+ Shopping and Advantage+ App Campaigns revenue being over twice what it was just last year, too. Meta announced the first quarter revenue of $36.45 billion, reflecting 27% growth over last year’s figure.

Elon Musk Predicts the Rise of Home Robots

A highly daring assertion that each middle-class American household will have a domestic robot has received Elon Musk’s consent. The forecast was done on the All-In Podcast with Chamath Palihapitiya, Jason Calacanis, David Sacks, and David Friedberg. 

The hosts talked about the future of domestic robots, Calacanis foreseeing that every middle-class American home would have a $ 1,000-per-month robot in the next seven years. In contrast, Friedberg proposed that most profit is made from industrial applications rather than consumer applications today. The prediction was endorsed by Musk, who replied “True” on an X post.
