The Rundown: Amazon One has trained a neural network using millions of artificial palms to create a contactless, convenient payment and identity verification system that reportedly outpaces the accuracy of iris scanning (watch demo video).
Utilizing unique lines, grooves, veins, and ridges on the palm, Amazon One connects a unique palm signature to your credit card or Amazon account.
The tech is rolling out to 500 Whole Foods Market stores and other third-party locations and strives to eliminate the need for wallets or phones.
The system was trained using a “palm factory” of millions of synthetic hand images — and has 99.99% accuracy on over 3M uses.
Use cases include contactless and convenient payment, age verification, entering a venue, and tracking loyalty rewards.
Why it matters: Amazon One's use of generative AI is an intriguing reinvention of convenience — with an opportunity to revolutionize everyday transactions and experiences and unlock the potential of biometric data.

The Rundown: Explicit ads for AI-powered virtual girlfriends and chatbots are currently flooding Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook despite bans on explicit content.
App developers are circumventing social media ad restrictions to promote explicit AI chatbots, with racy ads surging across major social media platforms.
The ads running are widely seen as a double standard, with human workers banned from advertising their services in the industry.
Despite increased scrutiny, Meta and TikTok are struggling to control the spread of these explicit AI ads as they surge in growth and the tech rises in popularity.
Noteworthy: It’s no surprise to see AI taken down this route (this is the internet, after all) — but these ads do raise some ethical issues around both regulation and who is being targeted by the content.
