Google’s AI startup DeepMind has unveiled a new AI system that can easily outsmart human fact-checkers when verifying the accuracy of information generated by the Large Language Models or LLMs. This method has been officially named as ‘SAFE.’ SAFE breakdowns the information generated by the LLM models into individual facts and then uses Google search results to judge the accuracy of each claim. DeepMind claims that the system is 20 times cheaper than employing human fact-checkers. This significant cost reduction could make fact-checking more scalable and accessible. Although it is too early to comment on DeepMind’s latest AI system, it can prove to be prove to be a gamechanger for fact checking AI content. More so because LLM models are notorious for creating factual errors.

Sam Bankman-Fried gets 25 year jail for Crypto Fraud

Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of the collapsed crypto exchange FTX, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for committing a massive fraud. He was found guilty of defrauding investors and misusing customer funds. This marks a significant fall from grace for Bankman-Fried, who was once seen as a leader in the industry.  While 25 years is a serious sentence, it’s less than the maximum he could have faced under the US law. Prosecutors reportedly requested a harsher sentence. This news is likely to have a chilling effect on the cryptocurrency industry, raising questions about regulation and consumer protection. It’s also a cautionary tale for investors considering cryptocurrency ventures.
