ChatGPT starts spouting nonsense in 'unexpected responses' shocker

OpenAI's ChatGPT started spewing nonsense last night, leaving users scratching their heads and sharing their bizarre encounters online. From poetic ramblings about computers to speaking in tongues, ChatGPT's "word salad" had folks wondering what went wrong. Turns out, a setting tweak behind the scenes might have thrown ChatGPT off its game. 

OpenAI quickly jumped on the issue, fixing it within minutes, and now ChatGPT is back to giving coherent answers. Despite the hiccup, this incident has sparked a conversation about the reliability of AI, with experts calling for more transparent, manageable, and understandable AI systems. OpenAI is keeping an eye on things, but hasn't spilled the beans on what exactly caused the glitch.


The paper discusses a groundbreaking method where diffusion models, initially celebrated for their prowess in creating images and videos, are now used to generate high-quality neural network parameters. By combining an autoencoder with a standard latent diffusion model, this technique synthesizes new network parameters from noise, creating models that either match or outdo traditionally trained networks in performance without extra hassle. This innovation opens new avenues for utilizing diffusion models beyond their conventional applications.
