The Rundown: Adobe just demoed Project Music GenAI Control, a prototype for easily generating and editing audio with AI — allowing creators to craft custom music tracks using text prompts.

The details:

  • Users start by inputting a text description to produce initial audio in a specified genre.

  • Integrated editing controls then allow adjusting patterns, tempo, intensity, and length to customize tracks.

  • The model is also able to reshape audio based on a reference melody and produce seamless background loops.

  • Adobe aims to solve major pain points for podcasters, broadcasters and other audio needs without pro experience, though the tech is not yet being released to the public.

Why it matters: While image and video generation has garnered most of the hype, it feels like music’s AI moment is coming. Between this Adobe demo and breakthroughs like Suno and Google’s MusicLM — it’s only a matter of time before the next billboard song is generated from prompts.

Check out the full demo video here.

The Rundown: Fintech giant Klarna just released a blog touting the success of its OpenAI-powered customer service chatbot, which handled a whopping 2.3M conversations in the last month.

The details:

  • Klarna estimates the assistant will drive $40M in additional profit in 2024.

  • The chatbot finished the equivalent work of 700 full-time employees.

  • The average time to resolution dropped from 11 minutes to 2 minutes, with the bot available 24/7 and able to converse in over 35 languages.

  • The Swedish firm laid off 700 employees in 2022 and said it will no longer be hiring new staff outside of engineering due to AI.

Why it matters: Klarna’s eye-popping statistics are a likely indicator of where all customer service is heading. Which, despite profit gains and user satisfaction, will decimate a massive segment of workers. While AI’s unlocks are endless — they won’t come without a major reorganization of current labor.


The Rundown: Using ChatGPT's vision and text extraction capabilities, you can upload your receipts to quickly generate an expense report.

  1. Go to ChatGPT and create a new chat.

  2. Upload or take photos of the receipts you wish to include in your expense report.

  3. Prompt ChatGPT: “Analyze each receipt and create an expense report based on the uploaded receipts. For each receipt, record the date, merchant, and amount, then categorize each expense”

  4. ChatGPT will provide initial results for you to verify their accuracy. Afterward, you can request a CSV file of the expenses to incorporate into your expense report or import it into a spreadsheet.

The Rundown: Alibaba researchers just unveiled EMO, an AI system that generates realistic videos of portraits talking, singing, and moving from a single reference image and audio clip.

The details:

  • EMO was trained on 250+ hours of diverse multi-lingual footage, including speeches, films, and singing performances.

  • The model sidesteps traditionally needed 3D face models, directly generating frames with a diffusion model instead.

  • EMO mixes in reference footage to enable consistency across longer videos while realistically capturing expressions and lip-syncing.

Why it matters: Adding EMO’s realistic audio/expression syncing to Sora’s recent quality leap means we’re likely about to be in a whole new world of AI video generation capabilities very soon… Which brings both creative excitement and tremendous deepfake concern.
