But for now, let’s take a look back at what went down last week and what’s coming up this week. Strap yourselves in, ’cause it’s about to get wild!
First up, Google has changed its political advertising policy. Now, with the 2024 election just around the corner, they’re requiring candidates to disclose any AI-generated images or videos they use in ads on Google’s platforms. It’s a step towards transparency, which is important, but some lawmakers are saying it’s not enough. Serious stuff, man.
Next, we’ve got Anthropic launching a paid version of their AI chatbot, Claude. It’s going head-to-head with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and for $20 a month, subscribers get a bunch of cool perks like more usage, priority access, and early access to new features. Talk about leveling up!
And hold on to your seats, ’cause Apple is rumored to be working on new conversational AI tools. Now, they’ve got an Apple Event coming up, but we don’t know for sure if they’ll announce any AI updates. Gotta keep an eye on that one, folks.
Over in China, things are heating up too. Tencent just released a new AI model for enterprise use, and Baidu debuted some new AI tools. These guys are really pushing the boundaries with generative AI. Impressive stuff, man.
And speaking of big names, Microsoft is making a bold move. They’ve said that they’ll legally defend commercial users of their Copilot product if customers get sued for copyright infringement related to their use of Microsoft’s AI tools. Talk about having your users’ backs, right?
Now let’s talk about some cool tools and platforms. Bria AI, an AI image generator based in Israel, has released new foundation models trained with licensed content from Getty Images and other sources. They’re also introducing attribution tools to help researchers and creators. It’s all about giving credit where credit’s due, man.
Hubspot, during their Inbound conference, announced a whole range of new AI tools for sales, marketing, and service teams. They’re even combining ChatGPT with data from loads of sources. Hubspot knows how to stay ahead of the game, that’s for sure.
Salesforce is getting in on the action too. They’ve released new AI features for Slack, bringing automation capabilities for productivity and collaboration. Who doesn’t love a little AI-powered boost, right?
And hold on tight, ’cause Intuit has some exciting news too. They’ve unveiled new generative AI tools for small businesses and consumers through Mailchimp. It’s all about making product campaigns, editing emails, and even translating copy for international audiences a breeze. Talk about taking things to the next level, man.
Now, let’s dive into the regulatory and legal side of things. California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order to prepare the state for the benefits and risks of AI. They’re doing risk assessments, researching the potential benefits, and even partnering up with top universities. California is taking this seriously, guys.
And here’s something cool – the International Association for Privacy Professionals has created a global AI legislation tracker. It’s got links to other trackers that are keeping tabs on updates around the world. Privacy matters, man.
We’ve also got a new working paper from researchers at the University of Oxford and a German newspaper. They analyzed AI guidelines from news organizations worldwide to see how they differ and what we can learn from them. It’s all about understanding the impact of AI, you know?
And hey, Mozilla is asking some important questions. They want to know if Microsoft uses personal data to train AI. Transparency is key, guys.
Now let’s talk about creativity and content. Fiverr, the freelance platform, is making AI a big part of their new campaign. They did a survey and found that 90% of businesses in the US are either using or planning to use freelancers for generative AI projects. That’s a game-changer, man.
And Digiday recently sat down with Pratik Thakar, Coca-Cola’s senior director of generative AI. They talked about how AI is being used in the beverage giant’s marketing efforts. It’s fascinating stuff, guys.
Alright, get ready for what’s coming up this week. Salesforce is holding their annual Dreamforce conference, and you know they’re gonna drop some big AI news. It’s gonna be epic, man.
And mark your calendars for “GenAI Day” hosted by Amazon. They’re showcasing a bunch of AI tools and bringing in speakers from Amazon and other companies. You can attend in person or catch the livestream, so no excuses, guys.
