The Generative AI Revolution Is Creating The Next Phase Of Autonomous Enterprise

Posted by in categories: business, finance, robotics/AI

According to the Financial Times, investments in generative AI in 2022 exceeded $2 billion. OpenAI’s valuation for a potential sale of some shares was set at an impressive $29 billion by the Wall Street Journal. Clearly, this indicates the enormity of interest from investors and corporations in generative AI technology. As the world continues to embrace technology and automation, businesses are beginning to explore the infinite possibilities of Generative AI. This type of Artificial Intelligence is on the cusp of creating autonomous, self-sustaining digital-only enterprises that can interact with humans without the active need for human interaction.

Generative AI is quickly becoming more widely adopted as enterprises are beginning to utilize it for a variety of tasks, including marketing, customer service, sales, learning and client relationships. This type of AI can create marketing content, generate pitch documents and product ideas and craft sophisticated advertising campaigns – all custom driven to help improve conversion rates and drive more revenue.

Generative AI companies are beginning to see massive success in venture capital, with many raising large sums of money and achieving high valuations. As per TechCrunch, Jasper, a copywriter assistant, recently raised $125 million at a $1.5 billion valuation, while Hugging Face raised $100 million at a $2 billion valuation, and Stability AI raised $101 million at a $1 billion valuation. In addition, Inflection AI raised $225 million at a post-money valuation of $1 billion according to TechCrunch. These successes can be compared to OpenAI, who in 2019, received more than $1 billion from Microsoft in funding with a $25 billion valuation.

Is Google Displacing Musicians With Its New Generative AI System: Music LM? (Part 1 Of A 2 Part Series)

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

Although not yet released due to copyright issues.

Google researchers say MusicLM is based on a model generating high-fidelity music from text descriptions such as “a calming violin melody backed by a distorted guitar riff”. You can find the details on GitHub.


This article discusses the risks of Generative AI in the Music Industry and puts a spotlight on Google, MusicLM developments and encourages leaders in the music industry to think harder about the future of their industry.

Impact Of AI On The Music Industry (Part 2 Of A Two Part Series)

Posted by in categories: law, media & arts, robotics/AI

My last article focused on the recent announcement of Google’s MusicLM, although not accessible to the public, due to copyright issues, it does give one new insights that AI is disrupting the value of human talent in the musical field.

Music has been core to humankind for centuries with the first piece of music, a Hurrian Hymn, discovered in the 1950s on a clay tablet inscribed in Cuneiform text. It’s the oldest surviving melody and is over 3,400 years old. Songs are human’s way of communicating stories and encompassing everything we know of as humans.


This article continues to explore the impact of AI on the music industry and looks at some of the pros and the cons, reinforcing the need for increased legal frameworks and copyright protections for musicians.

Why Meta’s Yann LeCun Is An AI GodFather And Why ChatGPT3 Is Not Revolutionary

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Last week, I attended a community event, that Collective Forecast organized where Yann LeCun was the guest speaker. The session was attended by leading experts in AI, ML, CEOs, journalists, and company representatives who simply wanted to hear what was on Yann’s mind. The session was jam packed with everyone engaged and cherishing each word.

Yann is is well known for his work on on convolutional neural networks (CNN), and is a founding father of convolutional nets. Yann received the 2018 Turing Award (often referred to as “Nobel Prize of Computing”), together with Yoshua Bengio and Geoffrey Hinton, for their work on deep learning.


This article summarizes a recent discussion with Yann LeCun discussing why ChatGPT3 is not revolutionary and why AI is not as Smart as a Cat.

Instagram’s co-founders introduce a new social app…for news reading

Posted by in categories: climatology, robotics/AI

Can lightning strike twice? That’s apparently the question being raised today with the public introduction of the next social app built by Instagram’s co-founders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. The duo have launched a new venture to explore social apps, according to a report published in The Verge, which includes the debut product Artifact, a personalized news reader.

The app itself is not yet publicly available but offers a waitlist where interested users can sign up. As described, it sounds like a modern-day twist on Google Reader, a long-ago RSS newsreader app that Google shut down back in 2013. Except in this case, Artifact is described as a newsreader that uses machine learning to personalize the experience for the end user, while also adding social elements that allow users to discuss articles they come across with friends. (To be fair, Google Reader had a similar feature, but the app itself had to be programmed by the user who would add RSS feeds directly.)

Artifact will first present a curated selection of news stories, The Verge’s article notes, but these will become more attuned to the user’s interests over time. Some of the articles will come from big-name publishers, like The New York Times, while others may be from smaller sites. Other key features will include comment controls, separate feeds for articles posted by people you follow alongside their commentary and a direct message inbox for discussing posts more privately.

Gmail creator says ChatGPT will destroy Google’s business in two years

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

Will it? Only time will tell.

The popularity of ChatGPT, the online chatbot built by OpenAI, has brought many to question the survival of search engines such as Google. Paul Buchheit, the creator of Gmail, has also dropped his opinion on the matter, and he thinks that Google’s business will last a maximum of two years, he tweeted.

Launched in November last year, ChatGPT has become the favorite destination to ask questions among millions of users. Instead of delivering a response to a search result that runs into tens of pages, ChatGPT answers the questions in a conversational style, making it easier for the user to ask follow-up questions, too.

Scientists harness light therapy to target and kill cancer cells in world first

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Year 2022 😗


Experts believe it is destined to become the world’s fifth major cancer treatment after surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy.

The light-activated therapy forces cancer cells to glow in the dark, helping surgeons remove more of the tumours compared with existing techniques – and then kills off remaining cells within minutes once the surgery is complete. In a world-first trial in mice with glioblastoma, one of the most common and aggressive types of brain cancer, scans revealed the novel treatment lit up even the tiniest cancer cells to help surgeons remove them – and then wiped out those left over.

A Completely New Way To Kill Cancer: Artificial DNA

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A research group at the University of Tokyo, led by Assistant Professor Kunihiko Morihiro and Professor Akimitsu Okamoto from the Graduate School of Engineering, were inspired to create a new anticancer drug using artificial DNA. “We thought that if we can create new drugs that work by a different mechanism of action from that of conventional drugs, they may be effective against cancers that have been untreatable up to now,” said Okamoto.
