 πŸ§  AI Stocks up 60%

HolonIQ Artificial Intelligence Index: The index has been on an upward trend since at least the beginning of the period shown and has increased by 9.81% overall. In the most recent month shown, the index increased by almost 5%. The strong performance of the HIQAI in recent months is likely due to a number of factors, including the increasing ubiquity of AI in our everyday lives and the increasing investment in AI by both governments and businesses. Significant highlights include Google's announcement of LaMDA 3, sparking debate about sentience and consciousness in AI models. In March, OpenAI's GPT-3 launched ChatGPT, offering conversational AI interactions to the public and raising concerns about fake news and misinformation. Meta unveils Make-A-Video, transforming text prompts into short videos and pushing the boundaries of creative AI tools in the month of July. All things considered, 2023 saw a major advancement in AI capabilities, but it also brought attention to the urgent need for ethical concerns, responsible research, and explicit restrictions.
