AlphaTensor - Discovering faster matrix multiplication algorithms with reinforcement learning

by treating algorithm discovery process as a single-player game.

Discovering novel algorithms with AlphaTensor
In our paper, published today in Nature, we introduce AlphaTensor, the first artificial intelligence (AI) system for discovering novel, efficient, and provably correct algorithms for fundamental tasks such as matrix multiplication. This sheds light on a 50-year-old open question in mathematics about…

Predictions for the next 12 months from stateof.ai

  1. A Hollywood-grade production makes use of generative AI for visual effects.
  2. A generative AI media company is investigated for its misuse during in the 2024 US election circuit.
  3. Self-improving AI agents crush SOTA in a complex environment (e.g. AAA game, tool use, science).
  4. Tech IPO markets unthaw and we see at least one major listing for an AI-focused company (e.g. Databricks).
  5. The GenAI scaling craze sees a group spend >$1B to train a single large-scale model.
  6. The US’s FTC or UK’s CMA investigate the Microsoft/OpenAI deal on competition grounds.
  7. We see limited progress on global AI governance beyond high-level voluntary commitments.
  8. Financial institutions launch GPU debt funds to replace VC equity dollars for compute funding.
  9. An AI-generated song breaks into the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 or the Spotify Top Hits 2024
  10. As inference workloads and costs grow significantly, a large AI company (e.g. OpenAI) acquires an inference-focused AI chip company.
