🔎 Google's Quest for AI Dominance

Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet Inc., is on a mission to navigate the booming AI industry and find Google's rightful place within it.

But it hasn't been smooth sailing for Google.

Despite their engineers laying the groundwork for OpenAI's ChatGPT via a published seminal paper introducing AI technology, it was Microsoft who seized the opportunity and capitalized on it.

Google has now launched its own AI tools, including the chatbot Bard but they’re treading cautiously not to ruffle any feathers among its users, regulators, or advertisers.

In a recent interview, Pichai spoke about the strange twists of the AI movement and how he plans to navigate them.

 🤩 AI Tech Giants to Grant UK Early Access to Their AI Models.

According to the British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Google DeepMind, OpenAI, and Anthropic have agreed to provide the United Kingdom with early access to their AI models.

This announcement was made during Sunak's speech at London Tech Week, where he outlined a three-part plan to ensure the country's safe and secure deployment of AI systems.

This three-part plan includes:

  • Performing cutting-edge safety research,

  • Formation of a global task force to address the global nature of AI.

  • and investments in AI and quantum technologies to harness their potential for improving people's lives.

It is uncertain whether the government will gain earlier access to production models than the general public or contractors, or if the commitment simply extends access to the government and other priority researchers.

Whatever the case may be, we can't wait to find out!

🔔UN Calls For Action Against AI Misinformation.

The level of misinformation generated by AI is alarming.

Just last month, the S&P 500 dipped briefly due to an AI-generated image and faked news report of an explosion near the Pentagon.

This has caught the attention of the United Nations, they've released a report detailing their concern about the threat of artificial intelligence-generated media, particularly on social media platforms.

The UN has now called for urgent action from AI stakeholders to address the spread of false information and ensure responsible AI use.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres held a press conference announcing that the report would contribute to the development of a UN Code of Conduct for Information Integrity on Digital Platforms.

The code is expected to be a set of principles that governments, digital platforms, and other stakeholders can voluntarily implement to tackle the issue.
