Google plans to charge for AI-powered search engine, FT reports

Alphabet's (GOOGL.O), opens new tab Google is considering charging for premium features on its generative AI-powered search engine, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the plan.

The tech giant is looking at a variety of options, including incorporating AI-powered search features to its premium subscription services, which already provide access to its new Gemini AI assistant in Gmail and Docs, the report said.

I can't tell if this is a move of desperation or a move of greed, either way, AI becoming so ingrained into the fabric of our lives, that being part of Google search is NOT GOOD for privacy, trust me on this one.

How Gen Z Is Becoming the Toolbelt Generation

America needs more plumbers, and Gen Z is answering the call.

Long beset by a labor crunch, the skilled trades are newly appealing to the youngest cohort of American workers, many of whom are choosing to leave the college path. Rising pay and new technologies in fields from welding to machine tooling are giving trade professions a face-lift, helping them shed the image of being dirty, low-end work. Growing skepticism about the return on a college education, the cost of which has soared in recent decades, is adding to their shine.

Despite this being published on April 1st, it is NOT a joke. The impacts on white collar jobs are already here and very real, that's the kind of disruptions that is coming for the space, if you laugh about Gen Z, what about your children? Your children's children, the world is going to look very different very soon.
 

OpenAI built a voice cloning tool, but you can’t use it… yet

As deepfakes proliferate, OpenAI is refining the tech used to clone voices — but the company insists it’s doing so responsibly.

Today marks the preview debut of OpenAI’s Voice Engine, an expansion of the company’s existing text-to-speech API. Under development for about two years, Voice Engine allows users to upload any 15-second voice sample to generate a synthetic copy of that voice. But there’s no date for public availability yet, giving the company time to respond to how the model is used and abused.

15 seconds... HOLY &*($, we are so screwed, how about someone secretly recording you, how about phone calls, how about crimes that you have never commited? Why does no one see a problem with this? and all of it just behind a paywall..

Journalists’ and Writers’ Unions Call on Congress to Consider Threats to Their Work in AI Legislation

Major unions representing U.S. journalists, writers and other creative professionals are calling on Congress to make these workers’ needs a “core priority” in any upcoming artificial intelligence legislation.

A little late to start begging.. AI companies have leverage, AI companies have money, AI companies will steamroll these tiny cries of help, until the whole world is engulfed by screams of job losses, it is only a matter of time.

Big Tech’s Latest Obsession Is Finding Enough Energy

HOUSTON—Every March, thousands of executives take over a downtown hotel here to reach oil and gas deals and haggle over plans to tackle climate change. This year, the dominant theme of the energy industry’s flagship conference was a new one: artificial intelligence.

I have already touched on this before, if nothing scares you about AI, then atleast you should care about the environmental ramifications:

 Airplane hangar-sized data centers training AI systems require “exponentially more power” than traditional data centers, per the Washington Post, causing utilities to dramatically upgrade their demand projections.

Tennessee becomes first state to pass a law protecting musicians against AI

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee on Thursday signed legislation designed to protect songwriters, performers and other music industry professionals against the potential dangers of artificial intelligence.

The move makes Tennessee, long known as the birthplace of country music and the launchpad for musical legends, the first state in the U.S. to enact such measures. Supporters say the goal is to ensure that AI tools cannot replicate an artist's voice without their consent. The bill goes into effect July 1.

A small ray of sunshine amongst AI armageddon, about damn time someone did something, holy %^&*, a first win, this should be universal, what are all the political bobbleheads doing not passing this?

Nvidia Wants to Replace Nurses With AI for $9 an Hour

Nvidia announced a collaboration with Hippocratic AI on Monday, a healthcare company that offers generative AI nurses who work for just $9 an hour. Hippocratic promotes how it can undercut real human nurses, who can cost $90 an hour, with its cheap AI agents that offer medical advice to patients over video calls in real-time.

Sounds good in theory and it really might be good for society in the short term, but what happens when millions of jobs get replaced at the snap of a finger?

Facebook’s Algorithm Is Boosting AI Spam That Links to AI-Generated, Ad-Laden Click Farms
 

Facebook’s recommendation algorithms are promoting bizarre, AI-generated images being posted by spammers and scammers to an audience of people who mindlessly interact with them and perhaps don’t understand that they are not real, a new analysis by Stanford and Georgetown University researchers has found. The researchers’ analysis aligns with what I have seen and experienced over the course of months of researching and reporting on these pages, many of which have found a novel way to link to off-platform, AI-generated “news” sites that are littered with Google ads or which are selling low-quality products.  

Great control over AI, meta... This proves how money hungry these giant corporations are, they have no intention of watching out for the dangerous of AI, if AI makes money but destroys half the world, the tech billionaires will still push it.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announces new AI chips: ‘We need bigger GPUs’

Nvidia on Monday announced a new generation of artificial intelligence chips and software for running AI models.
The new AI graphics processors are named Blackwell and are expected to ship later this year.
The announcement comes as companies and software makers still scramble to get their hands on the current generation of H100s and similar chips.

Great, a 2 Trillion marketcap company should be enabled to keep throttling onwards and pushing AI down the throats of every company, it's not looking good for the common folk.

Apple Is in Talks to Let Google Gemini Power iPhone AI Features

Apple Inc. is in talks to build Google’s Gemini artificial intelligence engine into the iPhone, according to people familiar with the situation, setting the stage for a blockbuster agreement that would shake up the AI industry.

Great.. Apple is joining the fray, not like pretty soon everyone will have an AI bot in their pockets, collecting data from billions of people and making the AI smarter, how is this not a problem?

Tech Leaders Say AI Will Change What It Means to Have a Job

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif.—Artificial intelligence will likely lead to seismic changes to the workforce, eliminating many professions and requiring a societal rethink of how people spend their time, prominent tech leaders said Tuesday.

Many industry leaders speculating a 3 day work week is coming, that sounds good on paper, as does universal basic income, but it also removes the individual use of people in general, wouldn't you agree? The power will be concentrated in the hands of select few industry titans, dystopian...

EU Poised to Enact Sweeping AI Rules With US, Global Impact

The European Union is on the verge of passing sweeping artificial intelligence regulation—with teeth.

The European Parliament is scheduled to vote on the legislation March 13, and one of the lawmakers leading the legislation said he expects it to pass easily. Under the current timeline the law would largely take effect in 2026, although some provisions would kick in this year.

Not to be that guy, but we have heard about this for a while, has any meaningful action actually come to fruition? Does anyone even care what Europe think? While EU is dancing with "sweeping regulations" US pushes full steam ahead LMAO.

Anthropic’s Claude 3 causes stir by seeming to realize when it was being tested

On Monday, Anthropic prompt engineer Alex Albert caused a small stir in the AI community when he tweeted about a scenario related to Claude 3 Opus, the largest version of a new large language model launched on Monday. Albert shared a story from internal testing of Opus where the model seemingly demonstrated a type of "metacognition" or self-awareness during a "needle-in-the-haystack" evaluation, leading to both curiosity and skepticism online.

The beginning of a resemblance of AGI haha... So funny. In all seriousness though, this one might just be lines of code being able to ID specific text and overblown, but how far is it really to think something like this is in the near future?

Musk sues OpenAI for not benefiting humanity enough

Musk vs. OpenAI
The lawsuit claims that instead of fulfilling its mission to develop AI for the public benefit, the $80 billion company betrayed its original goals by:

Developing advanced AI for profit (the organization now has a for-profit subsidiary but it’s bound to hew to the nonprofit’s mission), and becoming a “de facto subsidiary of the largest technology company in the world: Microsoft.” The tech giant invested $13 billion in OpenAI, buying 49% of its business arm.
Improperly licensing its GPT-4 AI model to Microsoft despite having an obligation to create such sophisticated tools for nonprofit ends.

This one is tough for me, as we all know Elon: The post claims Musk actually wanted to shift OpenAI to a for-profit model—with himself as CEO, saying billions of dollars were needed to compete with Google. I do firmly believe what Elon Musk is saying is correct though, OpenAI has 180 completely when they saw the market opportunity emerge and casted ethics aside.

Figure rides the humanoid robot hype wave to $2.6B valuation
 

Today Figure confirmed long-standing rumors that it’s been raising more money than God. The Bay Area-based robotics firm announced a $675 million Series B round that values the startup at $2.6 billion post-money.

The lineup of investors is equally impressive. It includes Microsoft, OpenAI Startup Fund, Nvidia, Amazon Industrial Innovation Fund, Jeff Bezos (through Bezos Expeditions), Parkway Venture Capital, Intel Capital, Align Ventures and ARK Invest. It’s a mind-boggling sum of money for what remains a still-young startup, with an 80-person headcount. That last bit will almost certainly change with this round.

Um, WTF? The headline literally reads: "OpenAI might’ve found a body for ChatGPT’s soul" Am I the only person alarmed by the prospect of AI being able to control a physical object??? How is no one else not talking about this..

AI Search Startup Perplexity Set to Double Valuation to $1 Billion

Perplexity, an artificial-intelligence startup aiming to challenge Google’s dominance in web search, is finalizing a new funding deal at around a $1 billion valuation, people familiar with the matter said, roughly doubling its valuation since its most recent financing a few months ago.

While it is natural how innovation like AI will disrupt dominate players, it is frightening just how much money is flowing into the space. Closer and closer to AGI we tick.

Microsoft invests in Europe’s Mistral AI to expand beyond OpenAI

Microsoft on Monday announced a new partnership with French start-up Mistral AI as the U.S. tech giant seeks to expand its footprint in the fast-evolving artificial intelligence industry.

Yikes. Microsoft entering Europe as well, so much for Europe being a leader for AI regulation, the fact this passed without a hike suggests that EU says one thing but won't say no to money.

AI’s New Job? All-Purpose Hollywood Crewmember

As OpenAI unveils its new product Sora, which allows for intricate video on command, crafts workers see the tech displacing artists: “It’s going to be everywhere.”

"The role of AI in the entertainment industry was a sticking point in talks during dual strikes by actors and writers last year, with the unions eventually negotiating guardrails on use, but the kind of tech capable of overhauling traditional production processes and outright replacing skilled workers was still thought to be years away."

I'm not going to keep hammering this point but this is just the start.

Can This A.I.-Powered Search Engine Replace Google? It Has for Me.

For my entire adult life, whenever I’ve had a question about the world or needed to track down something online, I’ve gone to Google for answers.

But recently, I’ve been stepping out on Google with a new, A.I.-powered search engine. (No, not Bing, which is dead to me after it tried to break up my marriage last year.)

It’s called Perplexity. The year-old search engine, whose founders previously worked in A.I. research at OpenAI and Meta, has quickly become one of the most buzzed-about products in the tech world. Tech insiders rave about it on social media, and investors like Jeff Bezos — who was also an early investor in Google — have showered it with cash. 

Seems like everyone is in bed with everyone, backed by Amazon is scary, from OpenAI and Meta is scary, all of the tech companies are lining up to gobble up the whole space is ... scary. What isn't scary?

Google pauses Gemini’s ability to generate AI images of people after diversity errors

Google says it’s pausing the ability for its Gemini AI to generate images of people, after the tool was found to be generating inaccurate historical images. Gemini has been creating diverse images of the US Founding Fathers and Nazi-era German soldiers, in what looked like an attempt to subvert the gender and racial stereotypes found in generative AI.

Remember when Gemini was named Bard, remember Bard's failures too lol? Maybe Google shouldn't be making AI, or any of the tech companies.. Do we as a society seem to care about the consequences? No..

Sora AI: Hype or Hero? Let’s Dive Deep (Limitations, Hidden Feature & More!

OpenAI announces a new AI called Sora. This AI can create a video from your text. That’s insane!

I believe it will be very useful for content creators, filmmakers, web developers, and others who work with this kind of content. The new model aims to convert text-to-video. It can generate a video from plain text.

Everyone is buzzing with excitment over this new AI tool, I believe that it is once again very dangerous technology, it will only get better from here with the support of OpenAI, what are the implications when you can create very very realistic videos of famous people doing things they never did? This will change the world when pushed to its limits.

Waymo arson in San Francisco sparks new debate on self-driving cars

A seasoned San Francisco cab driver might have avoided the intersection of Jackson Street and Grant Avenue, in the heart of the city's Chinatown on the first day of Chinese New Year.

An autonomous Waymo robotaxi, by contrast, drove toward the cross streets on Saturday evening, when crowds were blocking all sides and revelers were lighting fireworks, according to two witnesses. Minutes later, some in the crowd attacked the car and set it on fire.

You know what this reminds me of, luddites. However, you know what else this reminds me of? The PROBLEM of autonomous anything, how is that the bare minimum of it being destroyed is alarming? AN AUTONOMOUS CAR drove into a crowd, be f***ing glad that waymo is pulling out of SF with multiple stunts similar to this.

Air Canada must honor refund policy invented by airline’s chatbot

After months of resisting, Air Canada was forced to give a partial refund to a grieving passenger who was misled by an airline chatbot inaccurately explaining the airline's bereavement travel policy.

On the day Jake Moffatt's grandmother died, Moffat immediately visited Air Canada's website to book a flight from Vancouver to Toronto. Unsure of how Air Canada's bereavement rates worked, Moffatt asked Air Canada's chatbot to explain.

The chatbot provided inaccurate information, encouraging Moffatt to book a flight immediately and then request a refund within 90 days. In reality, Air Canada's policy explicitly stated that the airline will not provide refunds for bereavement travel after the flight is booked. Moffatt dutifully attempted to follow the chatbot's advice and request a refund but was shocked that the request was rejected.

The end result was that the AI ChatBot has now been discontinued, a small glimmer of hope that AI's have real world consequences affecting very real people and I hope that more companies see how automation may not translate into best practices.

Microsoft says it caught hackers from China, Russia and Iran using its AI tools

State-backed hackers from Russia, China, and Iran have been using tools from Microsoft-backed OpenAI to hone their skills and trick their targets, according to a report published on Wednesday.
Microsoft (MSFT.O), opens new tab said in its report it had tracked hacking groups affiliated with Russian military intelligence, Iran's Revolutionary Guard, and the Chinese and North Korean governments as they tried to perfect their hacking campaigns using large language models. Those computer programs, often called artificial intelligence, draw on massive amounts of text to generate human-sounding responses.

Does this not worry anyone? The fact that AI can be used to automate more of anything, notably nefarious tasks not worry people? How is there not outrage in controlling something like this?

OpenAI Gives ChatGPT the Ability to Remember Facts From Your Chats

The next time you tell ChatGPT that you’re allergic to avocados or prefer all meeting notes to be formatted in bullet points, the chatbot might be able to remember those details indefinitely.

Sam Altman Seeks Trillions of Dollars to Reshape Business of Chips and AI

OpenAI chief pursues investors including the U.A.E. for a project possibly requiring up to $7 trillion.

Can't wait to see the end of our world come at a breakneck speed while the guy preaches safety haha.

With rapidly improving AI, voice cloning has only gotten more convincing. That’s a problem

When some New Hampshire voters answered the phone in January, they heard a very familiar voice.

“What a bunch of malarkey,” President Joe Biden said, urging residents to “save your vote for the November election” and skip the state’s Jan. 23 presidential primary.

If you’re thinking that doesn’t sound like something Biden would actually say, you’d be right. New Hampshire officials now believe that the robocalls residents received were AI-generated, mimicking the president’s voice in an “unlawful attempt to…suppress New Hampshire voters,” the state AG’s office said in a statement.

I predicted this. AI will be used in nefarious ways, but the most important is elections and politics, AI content can sway voters while using very few resources to generate infinite content.

Meta to add ‘AI generated’ label to images created with OpenAI, Midjourney and other tools

Meta says it’s working to identify and label AI-generated images shared on its platforms that were created by third-party tools, as the company prepares for the 2024 election season amid a proliferation of artificial intelligence tools that threaten to muddy the information ecosystem.

In the coming months, Meta will start adding “AI generated” labels to images created by tools from Google, Microsoft, OpenAI, Adobe, Midjourney and Shutterstock, Meta Global Affairs President Nick Clegg said in a blog post Tuesday. Meta already applies a similar, “imagined with AI” label to photorealistic images created with its own AI generator tool.

Hahah, this is rich, Meta being the first to try to protect its users, however, notice that last line, subtly mentioning that META has its own AI tool, now I wonder why a platform like META would want to get more compliant. right after that booming financial statement.

Inside the Underground Site Where ‘Neural Networks’ Churn Out Fake IDs

An underground website called OnlyFake is claiming to use “neural networks” to generate realistic looking photos of fake IDs for just $15, radically disrupting the marketplace for fake identities and cybersecurity more generally. This technology, which 404 Media has verified produces fake IDs nearly instantly, could streamline everything from bank fraud to laundering stolen funds.

I mean it would only make sense that fake IDs would eventually happen with AI, scary scary as the world all around us falls into disarray, what is real and what isn't? Nowadays who knows?

AI lobbying spikes 185% as calls for regulation surge

Artificial intelligence-related lobbying reached new heights in 2023, with more than 450 organizations participating. It marks a 185% increase from the year before, when just 158 organizations did so, according to federal lobbying disclosures analyzed by OpenSecrets on behalf of CNBC.

The spike in AI lobbying comes amid growing calls for AI regulation and the Biden administration’s push to begin codifying those rules. Companies that began lobbying in 2023 to have a say in how regulation might affect their businesses include TikTok owner ByteDance, Tesla, Spotify, Shopify, Pinterest, Samsung, Palantir, Nvidia, Dropbox, Instacart, DoorDash, Anthropic and OpenAI.

I'm skeptical of lobbyists, they usually play both sides of the fence. I think these tech companies just want to beat OpenAI , but general support for my cause is very welcomed.

Universal Music Group pulling entire catalog from TikTok

When the future archaeologists find our TikTok catalog, they are going to be so bored watching post-Barbie homages to girlhood without that haunting Billie Eilish song. Universal Music Group (UMG)—which is the music label for huge artists like Eilish, Taylor Swift, and Drake—said it would pull its catalog from the platform after failing to negotiate a new contract with TikTok. The app’s nearly 1.4 billion users should start to hear the change today and be unable to use UMG’s artists’ songs in their videos, as the old contract expired at midnight.

  • Worries TikTok isn’t doing enough to protect artists from AI. TikTok recently confirmed that it’s testing a tool for users to create AI songs on the app.

Finally, some pushback in the space, this is serious money pushing back against AI startups doing whatever they want.

We Tried a Dating App That Lets a Chatbot Break the Ice for You. It Got Weird

More than a decade of dating apps has shown the process can be excruciating. A new app is trying to make dating less exhausting by using artificial intelligence to help people skip the earliest, often cringey stages of chatting with a new match.

You know what I wish for? Cringey Human Connection, that statement will become more and more evident as AI replaces everything it means to interact with another human being.

Taylor Swift’s name not searchable on X days after sexually explicit deepfakes go viral 

Social media users may have noticed Saturday that they cannot search Taylor Swift’s name on X, days after nonconsensual sexually explicit deepfakes of the pop star went viral.

Lmao, what did you people think was going to happen when AI became this prominent? This is going to happen to every celebrity with an ounce of fame. Who is the next celebrity to get this treatment? The bigger the celebrity the more likely to is is going to happen.

Rethinking AI's impact: MIT CSAIL study reveals economic limits to job automation 

A new study from MIT CSAIL, MIT Sloan, The Productivity Institute, and IBM’s Institute for Business Value is set to challenge our long-held beliefs. Their research critically examines the economic practicality of using AI for automating tasks in the workplace, with a specific emphasis on computer vision.

Their findings show that currently, only about 23 percent of wages paid for tasks involving vision are economically viable for AI automation. 

Let's flip this around, there are already 23% of visual tasks available and economically capable of being eliminated and replaced by AI. What is wrong with people, why can't they admit this is a problem??

Altman says ChatGPT will have to evolve in “uncomfortable” ways

OpenAI's next big model "will be able to do a lot, lot more" than the existing models can, CEO Sam Altman told Axios in an exclusive interview at Davos on Wednesday.

Why it matters: Altman told Axios' Ina Fried that AI is evolving much more rapidly than previous technologies that took Silicon Valley by storm. But he also conceded that the evolution and proliferation of OpenAI's technology will require "uncomfortable" decisions.

Evolve more rapidly... Do a LOT LOT more? Are we all hearing this?...

In his first big public appearance since his outing, Sam Altman will appear at the World Economic Forum, showing how much of a household name he has become to rub elbows with some of the most influential people in the world, notice how he talks about energy consumption being a problem --> Assumption AI will be that ingrained in society.

Looking at CES 2024: Startups and A.I. Take Center Stage

The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024) kicks off this week in Las Vegas. The tech conference, once a product showcase for giants like Sony and Samsung, has morphed into a hub for small tech companies over the past several years. 

Whether it's big tech or small tech, this year's show will be all about A.I. Here are a few of the innovations expected to get noticed at CES 2024.

It does not shock me to see that CES would embrace AI so deeply, it is the future of technology after all, but how does this fair in a modern world that can't seem to balance AI regulation at all?

Deepfakes for $24 a month: how AI is disrupting Bangladesh's election 

Policymakers around the world are worrying over how AI-generated disinformation can be harnessed to try to mislead voters and inflame divisions ahead of several big elections next year.

In one country it is already happening: Bangladesh.

The South Asian nation of 170mn people is heading to the polls in early January, a contest marked by a bitter and polarising power struggle between incumbent Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her rivals, the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist party.

Pro-government news outlets and influencers in Bangladesh have in recent months promoted AI-generated disinformation created with cheap tools offered by artificial intelligence start-ups.

ANYONE can have access to these tools for a small fee, what do you think about the corporations that have deep pockets and have access to better tools? Why even bother lobbying when you can influence who gets elected?

Microsoft gives AI a place on the Windows keyboard 

Microsoft is so confident AI is the future of computing that it's adding a new button to the keyboards of Windows PCs dedicated to its Copilot AI assistant, starting with new machines to be announced at CES next week.

Why it matters: It's the first change to the Windows keyboard in 30 years, and the latest example of hardware makers betting on AI to both create new product categories and breathe life into older ones.

Ah, yes, let's cram more AI down our throats lead by one of the world's most far reaching company, at this point, may be the MOST influential company as Apple falls to the waist-side.

The New York Times sues OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement 

The New York Times has sued OpenAI and Microsoft for copyright infringement, alleging that the companies’ artificial intelligence technology illegally copied millions of Times articles to train ChatGPT and other services to provide people with instant access to information — technology that now competes with the Times.

Nice start to the year huh, let's see what comes out of this lawsuit. I hope OpenAI and Microsoft gets dinged, but lawsuits take years to settle. I think it's interesting that AI can pull from real time internet now, that's scary if you think about it.

AI reads text from ancient Herculaneum scroll for the first time 

Beyond how excited scientist got over this lol, If AI was used exclusively for things like this, I have zero objections, but atlas, there are many more nefarious uses of AI than innocently used as a tool to overcome human barriers for IDing ancient scrolls.

Could an orca give a TED Talk? 

This is a feel good episode about AI :)
