VSHN.timer #176: The Age of Artificial Intelligence

27. Mar 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about how the latest developments in AI will reshape the world of Cloud Native platforms and apps.

1. Last week, GitHub announced GitHub Copilot X, following a streak of announcements including Microsoft 365 Copilot and Bill Gates himself explaining to us how the age of AI has begun. But rest assured, Bing won’t harm you unless you harm it first.


2. The Open-Source community jumped to the challenge and here’s fauxpilot, an attempt to build a locally hosted version of GitHub Copilot. The race for ethical and open AI is on.


3. AWS is also jumping onto the AI bandwagon, this time integrating the AWS Chatbot directly into Microsoft Teams, to interact with your cloud infrastructure directly from the comfort of your chat window: “Alexa, provision more S3 buckets, please.”


4. What kind of Kubernetes cluster is using OpenAI? Matt Rickard says it’s a cluster with more than 7500 nodes, well beyond the maximum advertised capacity of 5000 nodes for a Kubernetes cluster.


5. What happens when an AI talks to another? At this time in history, a misinformation shitshow. Take for example what happened when Microsoft Bing talked to Google Bard… not pretty.
