Google has consolidated its AI research divisions into Google DeepMind. The lab has made headlines numerous times in the years since, including when its AlphaGo program defeated a human champion at the ancient Chinese game of Go.
Google’s fear of chatbots saying the wrong things delayed the launch of its chatbot, according to Character.ai CEO Noam Shazeer. Shazeer, who was a lead author on Google’s Transformer paper, said that the company was afraid that the chatbot would say something inappropriate. The delay in launching the chatbot has given competitors like Facebook and Amazon a head start in the market.

Snapchat announced at its partner summit that its AI chatbot My AI will be available to all users in the coming weeks. My AI is powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT and can answer users’ questions and provide information on weather, news, stocks, and other topics.
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has said that the era of ever-larger artificial intelligence models is coming to an end, as cost constraints and diminishing returns curb the relentless scaling that has defined the field for years. Altman said that OpenAI will focus on developing more efficient AI models that can be trained with less data and less energy.

Elon Musk has announced that he will create ‘TruthGPT’ to counter AI ‘bias’. Musk was an early investor in OpenAI — the startup behind ChatGPT — and co-chaired its board upon its 2015 founding as a nonprofit AI research lab. However, Musk only lasted there for a few years, resigning from the board in early 2018 in a move that the San Francisco startup tied to Tesla’s work on building automated driving systems.
Italy’s data protection watchdog has said that OpenAI’s ChatGPT can be back if it makes ‘useful’ changes. The watchdog had temporarily blocked ChatGPT at the end of March over data privacy concerns, becoming the first Western country to take action against the popular artificial intelligence (AI) language model.

PyTorch implementation and pretrained models for DINOv2. Developed by Meta AI.
DINOv2 models produce high-performance visual features that can be directly employed with classifiers as simple as linear layers on a variety of computer vision tasks; these visual features are robust and perform well across domains without any requirement for fine-tuning. The models were pretrained on a dataset of 142 M images without using any labels or annotations.
Gorilla Technologies, the company behind famous apps Brass and StickerHub, has launched a new AI chat app called Superchat, which allows iOS users to chat with virtual characters powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

In response to Microsoft’s Bing search engine enhanced by OpenAI’s GPT, Google is gearing up to test a more advanced AI-driven search engine, codenamed Project Magi. The project involves 160 engineers working to improve Google’s existing search features with AI capabilities.
The initial public release is planned for next month, starting with one million users and aiming to reach 30 million users by the end of the year. Google’s move seeks to compete with Microsoft’s heavy investment in AI research and development through OpenAI, which has provided Microsoft with an advantage in the AI product market.
In a recent interview on CBS’ esteemed “60 Minutes” programme, Google’s Chief Executive Officer, Sundar Pichai, candidly expressed his concerns that society may be inadequately equipped to handle the swift progress of artificial intelligence (AI).
