First Vice President of the Russian Spur Bank, Alexander Fedyakhin, announced that his bank is conducting negotiations with specialists in Egypt about using artificial intelligence technology to decode ancient Egyptian manuscripts.
He said, "The task of preserving manuscripts and decoding them represents a great challenge, and I and my colleagues from Egypt are researching how to apply the algorithm we have that works with the technology of the Russian company Digital Peter to decode and preserve Egyptian manuscripts." He added, "In general, we have great mutual interest in this topic. I visited Egypt and spoke with my colleagues. I believe that this will be another interesting direction in the development of historical thought, and perhaps we will make some historical discoveries."

The expert recalled that the Russian Spur Bank had previously helped decipher the manuscripts of the Russian Emperor Peter I.

It is noteworthy that last April, the results of the joint project, which was achieved within the framework of the historical and documentary exhibition “Peter I and His Era” with the participation of the Russian Historical Society and the “Sberbank Digital Peter” company, were revealed to decipher the manuscripts of the Russian Emperor using artificial intelligence.

The work was carried out directly by historians of the "Petersburg" Historical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Higher School of Economics. They used 9,000 lines of texts written by Emperor Peter in different years to “train” a special program that analyzes what is written. As a result, it became possible to obtain the highest level of manuscript decoding, i.e. approximately 98%. Experts emphasized that this is not just a breakthrough, but a world record, because similar foreign projects provide accuracy of only about 60%.

The founder of ChatGPT is moving to the competing American technology giant!

Former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman is joining Microsoft to lead a "new advanced AI research team," CEO Satya Nadella confirmed to X.
Greg Brockman, the former head of OpenAI who resigned after Altman was fired on Friday, is also joining Microsoft to work in the new group.

Nadella said Microsoft was "very excited" to announce the hiring of Altman and Brockman, "along with their colleagues" who left OpenAI after the CEO's unfair dismissal.

OpenAI is believed to be looking to rehire Altman, following what were widely reported to be chaotic proceedings on Friday. He was spotted at the company's headquarters on Sunday, where he was said to be discussing the terms of his return, which will include restructuring the board of directors that fired him. It appears that Microsoft, the main financial backer of the ChatGPT developer, won the deal.

While the circumstances of Altman's ouster from OpenAI remain unclear, the company's board claimed in its statement issued Friday that the CTO had not been "consistently candid" in his discussions with them, which hindered the board's ability to do its job.

Brockman blamed the dispute with OpenAI's research department, led by co-founder and chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, in an X post on Friday in which he acknowledged that he and Altman were "still trying to figure out exactly what happened" before the CEO firing meeting.

He said Sutskever summoned Altman on Thursday evening to attend Friday's board meeting, where he was told "that he was going to be fired and that the news would be out very soon." Brockman also received a summons to the meeting from Sutskever, who told him that he had been removed from his position as president and that Altman had been fired. Although Sutskever told him he was "important to the company and would retain his role," Brockman resigned.

Insiders told CNN there was a clash of positions between Altman, who wanted to accelerate the development of AI products, and the board, which wanted to prioritize caution, with Altman's cautious public rhetoric not matching his actions behind the scenes.

Altman's recent announcement that OpenAI would launch a way for anyone to create their own ChatGPT-like chatbot was said to be an "inflection point for Altman's push too far, too fast" for Sutskever and the board.

Microsoft has a $13 billion stake in OpenAI and uses the company's technology to power its Bing chatbot. The company did not learn of the CEO's dismissal until "before" it was announced publicly.
