About Cohere

Cohere sees electric Vehicles (EV) not as a goal, but as a beginning. Due to large energy storage capacity, Cohere believes that EV is a crucial link and accelerator of the large scale adoption of (locally produced) sustainable energy. Cohere's core business consists of two pillars: A full-service provider for charging EV's at home, offices, car parks and campuses care-free; including charging stations, installation, solar and charging station accessories. As well as product development and the marketing sales of the Smart Charger, which fits in a user's electrical cabinet and dynamically manages the charging power of one or more charging stations for EV on the basis of available grid capacity, electricity price or produced solar energy. This way EV are charged faster, cheaper and on sustainable energy.

A|I: The AI Times – As Sam Altman returns to OpenAI, Cohere CEO slams the “self righteousness” of effective altruism

Subscribe to BetaKit’s AI Times newsletter * indicates required (BETAKIT) Microsoft is betting big on Québec as the tech giant earmarks $685 million CAD ($500 million USD) to expand its cloud computing and AI infrastructure in the province over the next two years. Microsoft’s investment is aimed to support the construction of multiple data centre locations in Québec, which it expects to launch over the coming months. The firm expects these centres to expand the firm’s computing capacity by approximately 240 percent over the next three years. OpenAI descended into chaos last weekend  following the ouster of CEO Sam Altman. As OpenAI’s board battled to uphold its decision, it  approached Dario Amodei , the co-founder and CEO of rival large-language model developer Anthropic, about a potential merger of the two companies as part of an effort to persuade Amodei to replace Altman as CEO. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff did his best to woo potential ship-hoppers as disillusioned OpenAI employees threatened to defect from the company en masse. The reported motivation behind the board action was an  AI breakthrough  some OpenAI employees believe Altman alluded to at the APEC CEO Summit, saying the advance would allow the company to “push the veil of ignorance back and the frontier of discovery forward.” While the remarks went largely unnoticed, the technical breakthrough, led by OpenAI chief scientist and board member Ilya Sutskever, raised concerns among some staff that the company didn’t have proper safeguards in place to commercialize such advanced AI models, according to a source speaking to The Information . Sutskever, a student of AI godfather Geoffrey Hinton, went on to spearhead the leadership upheaval, only to express his regret days later. Altman officially re-took his post as OpenAI CEO on Tuesday night, five days after his forced departure. A condition of Altman’s return was the induction of a new company board, which now includes Bret Taylor, the former co-CEO of Salesforce; Larry Summers, the former Treasury secretary; and Adam D’Angelo, the only member of OpenAI’s previous board to remain. Altman also agreed to an investigation into the alleged conduct that prompted the board to oust him. The Washington Post looked into Altman’s past at Y Combinator  to find clues that could shed light on his conduct at OpenAI. As it turns out, Altman was asked to leave by his mentor at the prominent startup incubator. Altman had developed a reputation for favouring personal priorities over official duties and for an absenteeism that rankled his peers and some of the startups he was supposed to nurture, according the The Washington Post’s sources. As the dust settles, the OpenAI employee share sale that is set to value the firm at $86 billion is reportedly back on track. (BETAKIT) Toronto artificial intelligence (AI) startup Semantic Health has been acquired by Utah-based medical coding, billing, and auditing firm AAPC. Following the acquisition, the two teams plan to expand Semantic Health’s functionality and bolster AAPC’s current product offerings. AAPC said it plans to continue supporting Semantic Health’s existing customers while growing the platform. (BNN BLOOMBERG) In a reference to the circumstances behind Sam Altman’s removal at Open AI, the chief executive officer of artificial-intelligence startup Cohere, Aidan Gomez, criticized the “self righteousness” of the effective altruism movement and those overly concerned with the threat of an AI doomsday in a letter to his staff. Gomez said that the effective altruism movement, which aims to quantify how to do the most good for humanity, has become dogmatic and self-aggrandizing. “When people begin to believe so deeply that they are uniquely qualified to benefit, or even save, humanity, they tend to be willing to take extreme actions towards that end,” he wrote, contiuing to say that Cohere is not “distracted by fantastic stories about doomsdays and terminators.” (THE LOGIC) To benefit from the AI boom, Canada will need to do better at capitalizing on its foundational innovations in the field and of keeping the startups developing the technology. It was Canadian researchers who enabled the AI boom, but several of the country’s early AI contenders sold to Silicon Valley. While Canada trailblazes  using artificial intelligence for the basic research that leads to new drugs to treat illnesses, it lacks the “wet labs,” financing, and manufacturing capabilities to turn that into a next-generation pharma industry. Canadian companies are even adopting AI technologies at a slower rate  than their peers, with executives and industry experts warning that a cautious approach could have wider consequences for Canada’s competitiveness. How does Canada keep building AI up then missing out? (THE GLOBE AND MAIL) As generative AI has swept the globe, most of the world’s 7,000 spoken languages appear to be an afterthought. The field of natural language processing, which refers to how computers understand language, has historically focused on about 20 of them. Low-resource languages, in contrast, are underrepresented, with fewer datasets for developers to work from. Earlier this year, Sara Hooker, the head of Cohere For AI, embarked on an effort to build an LLM called Aya that can converse in 101 languages. By early next year, Cohere aims to release the model and the language dataset for anyone to use.
