Missed the thrilling new happenings from last week? Well, this time, we’ve got a bouquet of AI news for you. ChatGPT is eyeing your spot at university after breezing through the entrance exam. Rumor has it, Microsoft’s corridors are buzzing about the new Windows equipped with AI, and all traders might dodge the long and often labyrinthine KYC process thanks to this tech. Finally, something to cheer them up after their wallets took a hefty hit last week. But let’s tackle these stories one by one.
ChatGPT-4.0 Passed Neurology Exam. Should we worry?
Seventy percent of correct answers usually pass as a decent score in educational institutions. ChatGPT-4.0 just aced its clinical neurology exam with an impressive 85% correct responses. Still not afraid that AI will take over the world? We’re starting to have some doubts…
Researchers at Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg unleashed a fusion of questions for a neurology exam from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, spiced up with a small amount of brain-busters questions from the European Board for Neurology.
The experimental findings surfaced on December 7th. Two LLMs, ChatGPT-3.5 and its fresher alter ego, ChatGPT-4.0, squared off in this test. While the ChatGPT managed 66.8%, cracking 1306 out of 1956 questions, the newer model, ChatGPT-4.0, aced it with 85%, nailing 1662 correct responses. Meanwhile, we mere humans averaged a respectable 73.8%.
ChatGPT-4.0 outshadowed human users in questions covering behavioral, cognitive, and psychological realms, acing the neurological exam like a pro. According to the squad of researchers behind this experiment, as these colossal language models continue to level up, they could find some serious within the field of clinical neurology.
We’re absolutely not surprised by these staggering results. After all, ChatGPT doesn’t bear the weight of getting into Ivy League universities. If it had flunked the test, it wouldn’t have ended up at the local “College for Fools.” But hey, we’re still proud of this guy. It’s reassuring to know that AI is tackling some crucial healthcare tasks, like hunting for that cancer cure.
Improved Microsoft Windows AI coming soon
Microsoft’s AI adventure took a giant leap forward with the debut of Microsoft Copilot on Windows 10 powered by GPT-4. The AI assistant, previously exclusive to Windows 11, was generously unleashed to the public in November for free. And the Bill Gates crew isn’t hitting the brakes there.
The upcoming Windows update, code-named “Hudson Valley” (not so secret anymore), is set to hit the scene in 2024, potentially causing a seismic shift in how this tech giant crafts its operating systems. According to Windows Central, this update is rumored to be built on a new platform called Germanium. It might include an AI-based Windows shell, an “advanced copilot” for turbocharged search and work processes, and a slew of other improvements.

The “Hudson Valley” update also marks a return to an annual release cycle for major versions of the Windows platform, ditching the current three-year lifecycle. This faster pace should make delivering new features a breeze, focusing attention on one big yearly overhaul, sprinkled with smaller feature drops.
Word has it that besides weaving AI into its existing products, Microsoft is brewing up some fresh AI-powered user treats. Super Resolution is set to tap into neural processing unit (NPU) hardware to beef up video and gaming quality. Meanwhile, the new Live Captions feature is primed to deliver real-time translations across multiple languages.
We don’t know how it’ll play out in practice, but it sounds super cool. We’d definitely give it a shot, sorry Steve!
Bitcoin Price Rollercoaster Has Significantly Drained Traders’ Wallets
During Monday’s trading session on December 11th, crypto futures traders waved goodbye to over $500 million in liquidated positions. With sharp volatility hitting high-leverage longs and shorts. Bitcoin (BTC) itself went on a wild spin, falling from $43,000 down to a terrible $40,300, according to the data.
The grandest liquidation order took center stage at Bitmex, where a Chainlink (LINK) futures position worth a whopping $33 million got the boot. The lion’s share of these liquidations went down at OKX, totaling a staggering $190 million. Right on its tail, there’s Binance with $148 million and Huobi trailing close with nearly $60 million.
Major altcoins like Chainlink (LINK), ADA Cardano, and SOL Solana dived more than 8%. However, Elon Musk’s beloved token and its “clone,” Shiba Inu, showed slightly better resilience with a 5% drop. And some stood tall and even strutted their stuff, gaining a hefty 20%: BNB, AVAX, and TIA from Celestia. Some coins weather the storm better than others, it seems!
Despite the market turmoil, Muneed Ali, founder of Trust Machines, the Bitcoin development firm, is confident we’re entering a Bitcoin era unlike any before. Ali’s confidence is also fueled by potential ETF approvals, the halving, and an influx of new developers.
KYC might be easier than Face ID unlocking
