> There's also the issue that in this case internet archive had moved away from distributing copyrighted material on a strict 1:1 basis with a corresponding physical copy so this particular case was more complex than the lending of personal property.

The judge ruled that this was irrelevant though, which was really stupid. Buying 1 copy should mean that you have one copy to lend out through physical or digital means. It shouldn't matter what form it was in when you bought it.

They can claim whatever they like, but it shouldn't be taken seriously if they hide the important details behind fake excuses of "safety". From the paper:

> Given both the competitive landscape and the safety implications of large-scale models like GPT-4, this report contains no further details about the architecture (including model size), hardware, training compute, dataset construction, training method, or similar.

Human brains have structural components / shapes that likely help them learn languages easier:

Human brains also start off with way more parameters than needed, and language is most effectively learned before the synaptic pruning reduces the number of parameters.

TIL apparently sharks can often be found nearby groups of dolphins. It makes a ton of sense though.

> This myth is often associated with a shark safety tip: “If you see dolphins, it's safe to swim there because their presence scares away sharks.” This is simply not correct. In fact, sharks and dolphins are often found near each other for a simple reason—they eat the same food, and both go where the food is.
