The Chatter around ChatGPT
In a new TED Talk, OpenAI co-founder and president Greg Brockman shows off the power and potential of the all-new ChatGPT plugins…and the results are stunning.
Thanks to ChatGPT plugins, ChatGPT can now traverse the internet and interact with third-party services and applications, resulting in AI agents that can take actions in the real world to help us with our work.
In the talk, Brockman shows off how knowledge workers will soon work hand-in-hand with machines—and how this is going to start changing things months (or even weeks) from now, not years. Listen here and decode what it means for the future of work.

Significant updates from Google --
AI research team, Brain, would merge with DeepMind, creating Google DeepMind.
Google is working on a project titled “Magi.” It involves completing transactions, such as buying shoes or booking flight — all while still incorporating the existing – and lucrative – Google search ads. New York Times has confirmed some AI features will roll out in the US this year and that ads will remain a part of AI-powered search results.
Google announced Bard had been updated with new features to help you code.
Bard can now generate code and help you debug code. As these updates rolled out, reporting from Bloomberg revealed that some Google employees think the company is making ethical lapses by rushing the development of AI tools, particularly around Bard and the accuracy of its responses.

Feeling the Heat
AI companies like OpenAI are coming under fire for how AI tools are trained, and social media channels like Reddit and Twitter are pushing back.
Reddit, which is often scraped to train language models, just announced it would charge for API access, in order to stop AI companies from training models on Reddit data without compensation. And Elon Musk publicly threatened to sue Microsoft for, he says, “illegally using Twitter data” to train models. Other companies are sure to follow suit.
An investigative report by the Washington Post recently found that large language models from Google and Meta trained on data from major websites like Wikipedia, The New York Times, and Kickstarter. In one example, the Post found models had trained on an ebook piracy site and likely did not have permission to use the data it trained on. Not to mention, the copyright symbol appeared more than 200 million times in the data set the Post studied.
We’ve arrived at a fork in the road, and a decision must now be made.
To be blunt, choosing the wrong path forward could result in the complete implosion of the creative community.
AI should be embraced as a creative tool, not as a replacement to human creators!
