This edition is packed with breakthroughs and insights, proving that passion in our industry goes well beyond a single day of love. Let's explore how technology continues to redefine our world, making every day an opportunity for discovery and innovation.



Sam Altman Proposes $7 Trillion AI Chip Manufacturing Boost 



OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, is reportedly seeking up to $7 trillion for an ambitious AI project aimed at expanding global chip manufacturing to meet the growing demands for AI technologies. This ambitious initiative highlights the critical need for enhanced AI chip production to support innovations like large language models, amidst a rapidly evolving semiconductor market. 



 Navigating MFA Vulnerabilities: Social Engineering Tactics 




Hackers are circumventing multi-factor authentication (MFA) through social engineering, employing methods like Adversary-in-the-Middle (AITM) attacks, MFA prompt bombing, service desk deception, and SIM swapping. These strategies exploit human error and system weaknesses, underscoring the importance of comprehensive security measures beyond MFA, including robust password policies and continuous vigilance against social engineering tactics. 



 ChatGPT Gains Memory: OpenAI's New Leap in Conversational AI 



OpenAI is enhancing ChatGPT with a memory feature, allowing it to recall previous interactions for more cohesive future conversations. Users have full control over this memory, including the ability to manage what is remembered or forgotten. This feature is part of a limited rollout to select users, aimed at improving ChatGPT's utility and personalization. 




$1.5 Billion U.S. Investment Fuels New York Chip Factory Expansion 



The U.S. government is investing $1.5 billion in a new computer-chip factory in New York, part of a larger effort to boost U.S. semiconductor production. This funding aims to enhance the nation's manufacturing capabilities for both consumer and military electronics, addressing supply chain concerns and advancing technological sovereignty.

Byte-Sized Brilliance

Birth of Digital Communication: The First Email's Journey 

Did you know that the first ever email was sent by Ray Tomlinson to himself in 1971? He used the ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network), which was the precursor to the internet. The email was something like "QWERTYUIOP" or similar, as it was just a test. This seemingly simple act is considered a pivotal moment in the history of communication, laying the foundation for the billions of emails sent daily around the world today.
