Hey, check this out! OpenAI, the badass company behind the AI chatbot ChatGPT, is thinking about making their own processors. Can you believe that? There’s a global shortage of expensive and hard-to-produce hardware, and these guys are like, “Screw it, we’ll do it ourselves!”
According to a Reuters article from October 5th, OpenAI has even been looking at acquiring another company to help fulfill their chip-making ambitions. They haven’t made a decision yet, but they’re definitely considering it. They’re also brainstorming other options to tackle the current chip shortage.
Man, if OpenAI follows through with this plan, they’ll join the ranks of tech giants like Google and Amazon who’ve brought chip production in-house. It’s a bold move, but they’re not afraid to shake things up.
This whole chip shortage situation has been a major headache for OpenAI. Earlier this year, their founder and CEO, Sam Altman, complained to a group of AI developers that the shortage was seriously slowing down their progress. Can you imagine? These guys are trying to change the world with AI, and they can’t because they don’t have enough GPUs. It’s like trying to ride a bike with no tires, ya know?
Since they launched ChatGPT last year, the demand for specialized AI chips has skyrocketed. And you wanna know who’s making bank off of it? NVIDIA. Their stock price has gone through the roof as companies clamor to get their hands on this expensive computing hardware.
OpenAI better figure something out soon because this chip shortage is no joke. Maybe they’ll partner up with their current chip supplier, NVIDIA, or maybe they’ll diversify and work with other chip providers. Who knows?
I reached out to OpenAI for a comment, but they haven’t gotten back to me yet. Busy saving the world and whatnot.
