Inflection-2.5: meet the world's best personal AI (via) I’ve not been paying much attention to Inflection’s Pi since it released last year, but yesterday they released a new version that they claim is competitive with GPT-4.

“Inflection-2.5 approaches GPT-4’s performance, but used only 40% of the amount of compute for training.”

(I wasn’t aware that the compute used to train GPT-4 was public knowledge.)

If this holds true, that means that the GPT-4 barrier has been well and truly smashed: we now have Claude 3 Opus, Gemini 1.5, Mistral Large and Inflection-2.5 in the same class as GPT-4, up from zero contenders just a month ago.
