OpenOrca is an open-source dataset and series of instruct-tuned language models. The team has completed the OpenOrca dataset, which consists of around 1 million FLANv2 augmented with GPT-4 completions and 3.5 million FLANv2 augmented with GPT-3.5 completions. They are currently performing full weights fine-tuning on the LLaMA-13b foundation and expect to release OpenOrca-LLaMA-13b in mid-July 2023.

Developmental biologist Michael Levin and his team have experimented with various organisms to show their latent abilities. They have successfully cultivated skin cells from a frog embryo to create a new organism called a “xenobot”. Slime mold, a unicellular organism, has been studied by Levin to understand its decision-making process in response to stimuli.
This article discusses how to write Python code with type annotations and struct-like data classes, inspired by Rust and Go.
