Welcome to our weekly roundup of premium handcrafted AI news.

This week AI voice clones got banned but became super sneaky.

Advanced AI added to anxious artists’ angst.

And Indonesian politicians brought a dead dictator back to life.

Let’s dig in.


The fight to ensure AI behaves higher is ongoing. The FCC declared that AI-generated voices in robocalls are illegal, so ‘Joe Biden’ probably won’t be calling you again.

Voice cloning is getting so good it’s hard to inform who we’re chatting with anymore. IBM Security made a really sneaky proof of concept to indicate how AI can hijack a key a part of the audio in a conversation. This is pretty scary.

Does AI display racial and gender bias when evaluating images? Researchers found that it sometimes does, but they wonder if it’s all the time a foul thing.

If we did eventually make a wonderfully aligned AI that was completely ‘protected’, what would that be like? Meet Goody-2, the world’s most responsible AI model. I’m offended.


Get creative

Can AI be creative? Is AI-generated art really art? Sam takes a deep dive into how artists are under fire and investigates the impact of AI on creativity and jobs within the sector.

This Sunday, greater than a 3rd of the US population watched the Super Bowl. A variety of those viewers tuned in purely for the commercials. AI dominated the Super Bowl ads and gave us some insight into how folks feel in regards to the tech.

McAfee released its second “Modern Love” study, investigating the interaction between AI and romance. Yes, that’s a thing now. Users of online dating platforms are getting creative and using AI to juice their profiles and scam people.

Is the dimensions of your dataset making you are feeling slightly inadequate? MIT researchers published an enchanting study that shows that symmetry of information could solve small dataset woes.

Chasing chips

There doesn’t appear to be any end to the insatiable demand for high-end AI chips. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman desires to make his own and says he needs trillions (with a t) for his outlandish AI chip project.

While Altman dreams of his own AI chip factories, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is advising countries to construct their very own sovereign AI assets. And he knows just where they might buy the GPUs they’ll need.

We may not must pay for cloud computing or API calls soon. NVIDIA has released Chat with RTX, a demo that lets you run an LLM like Llama 2 or Mistral locally in your Windows PC using one in all its RTX GPUs.

AI across the globe

Microsoft and OpenAI discovered that a lot of high-profile cybercrime groups were using their AI tools and promptly blocked their accounts.

They say these groups are backed by nation-states like North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China. Even the names of a few of these cybercrime groups sound slightly phishy. One group known as Salmon Typhoon. I wish I used to be making this up.

I had ChatGPT make a pic they might use on their t-shirts for his or her next cybercrime office team-building day. Just kidding guys. Please don’t hack me.

Geopolitical tensions are influencing where AI investment flows and who you’ll be able to do business with. Abu Dhabi-based AI firm G42 has cut ties with Chinese firms after coming under pressure from the US government and investors.

If you’re attempting to make sense of the right way to use AI to market what you are promoting globally, then join for the upcoming MarTech Summit events that can cover the APAC and EMEA regions.

Meanwhile, China denies any nefarious intentions with its pursuit of AI tech. Just a few days ago Chinese researchers unveiled a robot toddler named “Tong Tong” which they are saying is as intelligent as a baby aged between three and 4.

China says it desires to mass-produce humanoid robots by 2025. Millions of robotic toddlers, what could possibly go unsuitable?

The King’s Cross

Fans of British royalty got a dose of AI fakery this week. AI-generated books are flooding Amazon’s shelves to take a position about King Charles’s cancer diagnosis. The folks at Buckingham Palace are usually not amused.

AI surveillance technology was utilized in a year-long trial at a London Underground station with some promising results. The tech is prone to be rolled out wider however the line between safety and Big Brother surveillance is a high quality one.

Jailbird and Zombie politicians

Politics is all the time entertaining but this week it got extra weird.

Ex-Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is in prison but his party was still contesting the recent elections. He just declared that he won the elections using an AI avatar and a clone of his voice.

The US could have a few of the oldest presidential candidates but, to not be outdone, an Indonesian party used AI to resurrect a dead dictator for election propaganda. Former President Suharto looked pretty good on this video, considering he’s been dead for 16 years.

Some of the perfect cartoons and posters in history were inspired by political satire or propaganda. But due to risk of hyper-realistic AI fakes, Midjourney is considering snubbing out AI-generated images of Trump or Biden because the election looms.

The AI doctor will see you now

You could spend just a few hundred dollars an hour on a therapist, or you would just buy an Apple Vision Pro. Researchers developed an immersive AI therapy system named XAIA which mixes GPT-4 with Apple’s recent VR headset.

Participants within the trial gave positive feedback on the experience. It is also that they were just pleased to get to play with an Apple Vision Pro without the $3,500 price tag.

Finding the correct patients to take part in a clinical trial involves wading through hundreds of pages of clinical notes and records. These researchers found a method to use GPT-4V to do that faster, higher, and loads cheaper than humans can.

In other news…

Here are another clickworthy AI stories we enjoyed this week:

And that’s a wrap.

After seeing IBM Security’s voice clone hack I believe we’ll all must change into super skeptical real fast.

How do you are feeling about bringing back dead presidents to assist Biden and Trump campaign? Who’d you wish to see in motion? I’m pondering, Andrew Johnson after just a few drinks debating Richard Nixon. I’d watch that.

Altman asking for trillions and everybody nodding in agreement as a substitute of calling the nuthouse to make a reservation for him sums up how crazy the AI scene has change into over the past yr.

We can’t wait to see what happens next. And when it does, we’ll let you recognize right here.
