Bible Verses of the Day

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. [Romans 8:31-34, ESV]

Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter (now X), recently talked about the power of open source.

Talking about the closed source nature of social media where the algorithms greatly control what we see, Dorsey said that we are being programmed by black box algorithms that are impacting our free will and the agency we have.

He further added that the only answer to this is to open source the choice of algorithms, i.e. giving people the choice of what algorithm they want to use from a client that they trust and to even build their own algorithm that they can plug in on top of these networks.

Ironically, even Elon Musk agrees!

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is reportedly diverting important AI hardware shipments away from Tesla in favor of his social media platform X and his AI startup xAI.

As CNBC reports, emails widely circulating within Nvidia suggest that Musk instructed the chipmaker to prioritize the shipment of thousands of H100 AI chips, previously reserved for Tesla, to X and xAI instead.

H100 chips have quickly emerged as the cornerstone of many AI companies' ambitions, making them incredibly difficult to come by and exceedingly expensive.

The latest report is a striking development considering Musk has long threatened to divert his AI ambitions away from Tesla, going as far as to "blackmail" investors earlier this year. In January, he tweeted that he's "uncomfortable growing Tesla to be a leader in AI and robotics without having [about] 25 percent voting control," infuriating shareholders.
