LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

APPLE

The Rundown: Unlike other tech giants making bold AI claims, Apple has been quietly using the tech to enhance basics in its new devices with several low-key features announced at the Wonderlust event.

Key points:

  • Apple didn't mention "AI" in its announcements, contrasting with rivals like Microsoft and Google setting ambitious AI visions.

  • The iPhone 15 highlighted AI-related improvements for noise cancellation, blurring portraits, and predictive text.

  • In the latest Series 9 Watch, a four-core "Neural Engine" will power machine learning tasks, reportedly boosting Siri's accuracy by 25%.

Why it matters: Apple is keeping hushed on AI (for now) by labeling its AI-related updates as anything other than AI. But dont count Apple out of the AI race just yet they also have a ChatGPT competitor on the way and billions of consumers.

STABILITY AI

The Rundown: Stability AI just announced Stable Audio, a new AI product that can generate high-quality music and sound effects from simple text prompts.

Key points:

  • The platform takes prompts like music genre, instruments, mood, etc., to create full audio tracks or diverse sound effects.

  • The launch marks Stability AI's first expansion beyond images/text into audio, leveraging its open multi-modal AI approach.

  • Stable Audio offers free 20-second sample generations and 90-second downloads with commercial use for Pro subscriptions.

Why it matters: Stability AIs new tool gives creators a nifty new tool for inspiration on demand and might just be the partner musicians never knew they needed. But its also sure to raise similar ethical questions to what weve seen with Ghostwriter977 (creator of AI Drake) and other AI-generated music.

AI TRAINING

ChatGPT can create visually stunning charts for you without touching Excel or writing a line of code.

Step 1: Open ChatGPT and select Advanced Data Analysis (previously Code Interpreter)

Step 2: Upload your data by attaching a file or pasting it into a prompt such as "Please create a visually stunning chart that best displays the following data. For this example, we used a dataset of how long it took various services to reach 1M users.

Step 3: If you have specific customization requests, add them to your prompt or ask ChatGPT to refine. Preferences can include chart type, color scheme, layout, etc.

That's it! All it takes are a few simple steps to get a customized, data-driven chart just by speaking in natural language with ChatGPT.

Try it out for your next presentation before reaching for Excel!
