 🗣️ Microsoft Brings Voice Interaction to Bing Chat.

Source: The Verge

Microsoft is introducing Bing's voice mode to the desktop version of their

Edge browser.

You can now ditch the keyboard and simply use your voice to ask questions, and Bing's chatbot will respond back to you in a voice of its own.

The chatbot supports English, Japanese, French, German, and Mandarin, with more languages planned for the future.

This move by Microsoft comes as the company plans to discontinue Cortana on Windows.

Instead of Cortana, Microsoft is now pointing users toward Bing and its AI-powered Copilot that it’s building into Windows 11 as more capable replacements.

With Windows Copilot, you can ask all sorts of questions, get quick summaries of the content you're browsing, and even tweak your PC settings effortlessly and more.

So friends, let the conversation begin! 🗣️🔊

⚖️ OpenAI Faces Defamation Lawsuit!

A radio host named Mark Walters from Georgia has filed a defamation lawsuit against OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT.

The lawsuit arose from a request made by journalist Fred Riehl to summarize a federal court case using ChatGPT.

The system generated false information that Walters had embezzled funds from a non-profit organization, although Riehl did not publish the false information, he checked the details with another party.

It remains unclear how Walters, who is now seeking unspecified monetary damages from OpenAI learned about the misinformation.

This lawsuit isn't an isolated incident either. 😯

Cases are beginning to emerge of ChatGPT errors causing harm.

There’s the case of a lawyer facing possible sanctions after using ChatGPT to research fake legal cases and a professor threatening to flunk his class after ChatGPT claimed his students used AI to write their essays.

It is uncertain whether there is a legal precedent to hold companies accountable for defamatory or false information generated by AI systems.

The traditional protection provided by Section 230 in the US shields internet firms from liability for content produced by third parties on their platforms.

But whether or not that protection extends to AI systems that generate new information remains a mystery.

Guess we’ll have to see how this case unfolds to know for sure. 🤷

🤫 Behind Closed Doors: Macron Meets AI Giants.

There’s a rivalry between London and Paris to become the go-to destination for all things tech, innovation and venture capital.

Both UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and French President Emmanuel Macron are going head-to-head with their interest in influencing AI regulation.

And now, the French President held a private meeting at the Elysée Palace with artificial intelligence experts from Meta Platforms Inc. and Google, among others, to discuss France's role in AI research and regulation.

We can bet that the UK Prime Minister won’t like this. 😀 (Just kidding)

The meeting included discussions on France's position in the global AI race, the impact of AI on society, and Europe's upcoming AI Act.

Macron is also scheduled to be at the Paris technology conference VivaTech, which starts June 14, where he’ll present France’s blueprint regarding generative AI.
