The Rise of a New ChatGPT Competitor

Google's DeepMind takes on ChatGPT with new AI competitor: "Sparrow"

Weekly Rundown

Exciting updates from the world of AI!

Looks like ChatGPT's got some competition on the horizon! In response to OpenAI's recent success, Google is planning to release their own chatbot, called Sparrow. According to the CEO of Google's DeepMind Demis Hassabis, they aim for a "private beta" some time in 2023. But don't worry ChatGPT, they're just adding some fancy new features like "citing its sources" using reinforcement learning. I mean, who doesn't like a chatbot that can properly cite its sources? 🤔

On a related note, it seems that OpenAI is not content with just dominating the text game, they're now setting their sights on video domination as well! According to an inside source at Reuters, the CEO of OpenAI has confirmed that they're working on a video model alongside the highly-anticipated GPT-4. It's like they're saying, "Text? Pshh, we've got that covered. Let's move on to bigger and better things." Looks like the future of AI is going to be one wild ride, and we're excited to see what's in store!

A recent study claims scientists have found a way to do full body tracking using only WiFi signals. A deep neural network maps the phase and amplitude of WiFi signals to UV coordinates within 24 human regions estimating the dense pose of multiple subjects with a high degree of accuracy. The model can determine the pose of multiple subjects by utilizing WiFi signals as the only input. So, next time you're sitting on your couch, just remember that your WiFi signals might be giving away more than just your browsing history. 🤯

Next, let's address the future of testing. Medical students, take note: ChatGPT, the language model we all know and love, just slayed the US medical licensing exam (USMLE). This exam usually takes over a year of prep and is a four-day marathon of questions that range from multiple choice to open-ended written responses. But, before you start handing over your stethoscopes and gavels, ChatGPT didn't quite pass the bar exam, but it did earn passing scores on the evidence and torts portions. However, the question isn't if ChatGPT will pass these exams, it's when. Unless testing standards adapt accordingly, that is.  

Finally, let's talk about Voice Cloning with VALL-E, your voice can soon be copied by AI with just 3 seconds of an audio sample with VALL-E. VALL-E is a program developed by researchers that can "copy" your spoken voice using short samples, and it does this in a unique way: Instead of turning text into a series of specific sounds (called phonemes) and then into a visual representation of the sound called a mel-spectrogram, and then into a waveform (a digital representation of sound that can be played through a speaker) VALL-E generates a series of codes based on the phonemes and an audio recording of the speaker's voice, and determines the age, gender, and accent of the speaker and layers it onto similar sounding voices to yours. The end results are still startlingly accurate.

 Side Hustle of The Week

AI is on track to contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy in 2030. Here's this weeks idea to take advantage of the opportunity right now:

Idea: AI-generated writing prompt e-book sales.

Problem: You want to generate additional income and leverage chatGPT, but you don't want to invest too much time and resources in creating a product. 

Solution: You can create an e-book featuring a collection of AI-generated writing prompts, which you can then sell on various e-book platforms such as Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, Barnes & Noble Press, and more. You can also promote your e-book on social media, writing communities, and your own website to reach a wider audience. The e-book can include a variety of prompts for different genres and styles, and you can update it periodically with new prompts to keep it fresh and attract repeat customers.

The best part? You can copy my entire free list of over 500 of the best chatGPT prompts (link). You don't even have to credit me. All I ask is that you spread the word of my newsletter 🫶
