Last weekend I flew to San Francisco, preparing for a multi-day immersion in all things Nvidia and AI. I needed to gather all my energy for the company’s annual GTC conference, but I couldn’t sleep. I shrugged off my jet lag and headed to Monterey for two days to interact with sea lions and otters—they call it Red Bull. A real nature and wildlife-style shot before delving into the world of artificial intelligence and GPUs and PFLOPS.

Nvidia’s GTC conference was, unsurprisingly, a complete storm. CEO Jensen Huang had a two-hour keynote at the SAP Center in San Jose, where he was dressed in a black leather jacket that I wrote was “a little more rock and roll” than the plain version. ” Think. Considering Nvidia’s soaring stock performance over the past few years — everyone seems to be getting a reason to party. There was a gathering of the authors of ‘Attention is All You Need,’ the paper introducing Transformers that jump-started the generative AI boom. Nvidia GTC also featured hundreds of other sessions, panels, fireside chats, dinners and happy hours — not to mention a stream of news from Nvidia, announcing its latest next-generation AI chip and platform, Blackwell. is limited by

The never-ending pace of AI industry news

But naturally, the AI ​​pulse continued beyond the conference, with the typical unwavering pace of AI industry news: Microsoft hired Inflection AI CEO and co-founder Mustafa Sulaiman, previously cofounder of DeepMind; Received and dropped the mic. Consumer AI business. Apple and Google are reportedly discussing a deal to bring Google AI to iPhones. First ‘fairly trained’ AI model hits headlines This morning, the United Nations adopted the first global AI resolution.

This is the AI ​​beat thing. The beat never stops. And that brings me to my personal news: I’m leaving VentureBeat to pursue a new professional opportunity. The good news is that I’ll still be covering AI – a beat I’ve come to deeply enjoy and respect over the past couple of years. But it’s bittersweet: Not only will I miss my small but mighty team at VentureBeat, but publishing OpenAI’s ChatGPT six months before generative AI exploded into the public consciousness gave me the guts to take on the AI ​​beat. Opportunity provided. I’m proud to say that I took full advantage of it—I’ve now written hundreds of articles that have helped tell the story of the people and companies behind the emergence, evolution, opportunities, and struggles of creative AI.

A passionate goodbye

I covered AI before I joined VentureBeat, but it was at the highest level, the broadest stroke — how companies use traditional AI for predictive analytics or pattern recognition for narrow business use cases. She was doing it.

When I got to the VentureBeat, I immediately realized that the AIBeat turned into a wild ride. As I wrote in one of my first AI Beat columns in December 2022: “It was my first week at VentureBeat in mid-April. OpenAI had just released a new iteration of its text-to-image generator, DALL-E 2. Our lead AI writer, Kyle Wiggers, had moved on. Tech Crunch Before I could pick his brain. And I was panicking.”

But I was a good listener and eager to learn. And listen and learn as I did, from fellow journalists and industry analysts, startup CEOs and big tech executives, consultants and engineers, researchers and policy leaders, lawyers and professors. I continue to rely on experts from industry and academia to guide my work, as I strive to provide what I hope is balanced and nuanced reporting around the increasingly expansive and confusing AI landscape. be

I know my VentureBeat colleagues — Carl Franzen, Michael Nuñez and Shubham Sharma — will continue to work to do just that in their AI-focused coverage. I wish him success in what I think is the best beat in tech!
