The Rundown: Microsoft just announced a new Copilot key coming to Windows keyboards, marking the first major keyboard change in 30 years — with the company calling 2024 the year of the "AI PC".

The details:

  • A new Windows logo-styled key will activate the Copilot experience in Windows to seamlessly engage Microsoft's AI assistant.

  • The new key aims to simplify using AI in everyday tasks as the tech becomes more personal and intelligent.

  • The update will start appearing on new Windows 11 devices beginning in late February, including on the upcoming Microsoft Surface devices.

Why it matters: The prominent Copilot keyboard addition signals Microsoft's commitment to making AI assistants ubiquitous and easily accessible across its family of devices — and likely is just the start of a broad wave of AI enhancements across it’s devices.

The Rundown: Samsung just announced its Galaxy launch event for Jan. 17, while prominently touting "Galaxy AI" in its marketing — signaling major AI features for its latest line of smartphones.

The details:

  • The event invites promise a "new era of mobile AI" for the Galaxy S series, promising to set a higher standard for intelligent smartphones.

  • Previous leaks and rumors have pointed to prominent AI features for translation, low-light photography, and image editing.

  • The phones potentially include ‘Gauss’, Samsung’s on-device AI model revealed in November — which features language, code, and image capabilities.

Why it matters: Samsung looks to lead the way in making AI useful and accessible across mobile devices. If its mobile AI capabilities live up to the hype, will Apple users be motivated to switch if the new iPhones don’t see significant AI upgrades?

The Rundown: New research just uncovered the most optimal prompts to get the most out of LLMs like ChatGPT — providing us a better understanding of how to effectively communicate our needs to AI.

Here are 5 (research-backed) ways to maximize ChatGPT:

  1. Incorporate the following phrases: “Your task is”, “You MUST”, “You will be penalized”, and ”Answer a question given in a natural, human-like manner”.

  2. Add “I’m going to tip $(random amount) for a better solution!”

  3. Use leading words like writing “think step by step.“

  4. Employ affirmative directives such as ‘do,’ while steering clear of negative language like ‘don’t’.

  5. Repeat a specific word or phrase multiple times within a prompt.

The Rundown: JPMorgan’s AI research team just introduced DocLLM, an AI model extension designed to better understand complex business documents by incorporating both text content and layout structure.

The details:

  • The extension adds bounding box data on text segments and uses text infilling during training to handle messy real-world document layouts.

  • DocLLM outperformed leading models (including GPT-4) by over 15% on some form analysis challenges.

  • The model extension also showed reliable accuracy when tested on unseen document types and domains.

Why it matters: DocLLM looks to provide a lightweight way to boost AI comprehension of forms, records and other documents essential to sectors like financial services, healthcare, government and more — potentially helping automate slow, manual business processes.
