🧠 Obviously, among Google’s new products and features, the flagship event strongly focused on AI and Google Bard. One of the most important announcements – Google Bard is now available in more countries.
It’s been less than two months since we launched Bard, our experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI, and I’m amazed to see the creative and imaginative ways people have interacted with it. (I, for one, have gotten some really fun ideas to help teach my 7-year old fractions!) Since we rolled out Bard — initially in the U.S. and the U.K. — we’ve gotten quite a bit of feedback and have adapted quickly to make your experience with it even better. We recently moved Bard to PaLM 2, a far more capable large language model, which has enabled many of our recent improvements — including advanced math and reasoning skills and coding capabilities. In the past few weeks, coding has already become one of the most popular things people do with Bard. Sissie Hsiao
The availability of Google AI tool was one of the things that caused a rift between ChatGPT – will it be one of the moves that will put Google’s assistant on top of the game?
AI cameras are being set up on highways to catch drivers who throw trash out of their car windows The cameras can catch those who litter and send images to officers.
👮👮 Writing essays for your class is not the only thing that AI can help in.
The UK police took an interesting approach of using the new wonders of AI tech to catch those pesky drivers who can stop throwing their garbage on the highways from their cars.
AI cameras are being set up on some UK highways to stop drivers from throwing trash out of their car windows. The AI-powered cameras will be installed in British lay-bys in the coming weeks in an attempt to catch drivers who litter, The Metro reported. Offenders could be fined up to £100, or $126, according to the news outlet. The initiative is being run as part of a trial by National Highways, a body that was set up to maintain and improve major roads. It will work in collaboration with a subsidiary of East Hampshire County council, per The Metro. The cameras would be able to automatically send the images to enforcers, meaning officers would no longer have to look through hours of CCTV footage, the publication added. Beatrice Nolan
It will be interesting to see whether it will improve police efficiency in resolving this issue and open-up the floodgates in using AI for law enforcement.
Tech pioneers call for six-month pause of "out-of-control" AI development The call to action follows rising concerns over the potential risks of powerful new generative AI systems.
🛑 Is AI too advanced for our own well-being? According to tech gurus like Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and Yoshua Bengio we should maybe stop and calmly reconsider this case…for at least 6 months.
A score of tech pioneers have signed an open letter calling for a halt to advanced artificial intelligence (AI) development.
The open letter from the Future of Life Institute has received more than 1,100 signatories including Elon Musk, Turing Award-winner Yoshua Bengio, and Steve Wozniak.
It calls for an “immediate pause” on the “training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4″ for at least six months.
According to the institute, the call to action comes in direct response to the rapid acceleration of generative AI technologies currently being rolled out by major industry players such as Microsoft and Google. Ross Kelly
A lawyer used ChatGPT for legal filing. The chatbot cited nonexistent cases it just made up it just made upThe lawyer now may face sanctions
✍️ Speaking of dangers and “bracing for impact as a society” – there is a need to talk about AI hallucination. As much as ChatGPT looks like genius tech magic, it can also get some things wrong…
It all starts with the case in question, Mata v. Avianca. According to the New York Times, an Avianca customer named Roberto Mata was suing the airline after a serving cart injured his knee during a flight. Avianca attempted to get a judge to dismiss the case. In response, Mata’s lawyers objected and submitted a brief filled with a slew of similar court decisions in the past. And that’s where ChatGPT came in. Schwartz, Mata’s lawyer who filed the case in state court and then provided legal research once it was transferred to Manhattan federal court, said he used OpenAI’s popular chatbot in order to “supplement” his own findings.
ChatGPT provided Schwartz with multiple names of similar cases: Varghese v. China Southern Airlines, Shaboon v. Egyptair, Petersen v. Iran Air, Martinez v. Delta Airlines, Estate of Durden v. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, and Miller v. United Airlines.
The problem? ChatGPT completely made up all those cases. They do not exist. Matt Binder
