New Breakthrough Brings Matrix Multiplication Closer to Ideal

William Kuszmaul from Harvard University hails a groundbreaking improvement in matrix multiplication efficiency. The operation, vital in various algorithms for tasks like improving graphics and optimizing network theory, hinges on speed for time and cost savings. Traditional methods entail n3 multiplications for n-by-n matrices. Strassen and Winograd pioneered faster approaches for smaller matrices by decomposing them. New research aims to push the limit and reach the theoretical minimum of n² steps for multiplying matrices.

I Recreated the Most Iconic Photos of All Time With AI in Just One Day

AI image generators use copyrighted photos to train. PetaPixel explores recreation of famous images using DALL-E and Midjourney models, with the number of iconic photos being limited.

DALL-E 3 and Midjourney are tested to recreate renowned photos like V-J Day in Times Square and Abbey Road. Models were prompted without using names and with minimal tweaking.

The iconic "Migrant Mother" photo by Dorothea Lange was successfully recreated by Midjourney. Both models also easily recreated the mysterious "Lunch Atop a Skyscraper" photo.

Watching AIs training to multiply matrices, Microsoft engineers striving to control them, researchers reconstructing iconic photos, that's something I don't mind. I've always loved monsters.
