ChatGPT upgraded again: adding image and voice input functions

OpenAI announced that it will launch new voice and image features in ChatGPT. The above features allow users to conduct voice conversations or show pictures to ChatGPT.

The speech feature is powered by a new text-to-speech model, capable of generating human-like audio from just text and a few seconds of sample speech.

ChatGPT will have five different voices for users to choose from, and also supports functions such as generating text from voice audio and translating podcast voices into other languages.

Image search is a bit like Google Lens. Users take photos of content of interest, and ChatGPT will try to find out the questions you ask and answer them accordingly.

The new features will be rolled out to ChatGPT Plus and enterprise users in the next two weeks, and feature coverage will continue to be expanded in the future.

Tesla releases latest progress on Optimus humanoid robot

Recently, Tesla released its latest video, showing the latest progress of its Optimus humanoid robot, which can achieve complex tasks such as autonomously sorting items and doing yoga.

As with the latest version of FSD (Full Self-Driving), Tesla also noted that Optimus is now being trained end-to-end by a neural network, that is, "video input, control output."

Musk once said that the powerful visual systems built by "Optimus" and Tesla FSD can be connected, and the underlying modules of the two have been connected.

In his view, Tesla has always been an AI company, not just a car company.

In a previous interview, Musk said that "Optimus' value is seriously underestimated." He said that if Optimus becomes mature and available, their demand may reach 10 or even 20 billion units.

Amazon to invest $4 billion in AI startup Anthropic

Amazon said on Monday it would invest up to $4 billion in high-profile startup Anthropic to expand its presence in the artificial intelligence cloud field.

As part of the deal, Amazon employees and cloud computing customers will have earlier access to Anthropic's technology and integrate it into their businesses.

AWS will become Anthropic's primary cloud provider for mission-critical workloads, and Anthropic will utilize a large number of proprietary chips purchased from Amazon to train its future artificial intelligence models.

The parties did not disclose how much shares Amazon would hold in Anthropic, nor did they disclose Anthropic's latest valuation. Amazon said it would not receive a board seat and its stake would amount to a minority stake.

The investment is Amazon's largest to date in generative artificial intelligence and comes as it takes on cloud computing rivals Google and Microsoft.

Amazon Web Services CEO Adam Selipsky said the agreement "will help improve Anthropic's models, as well as our chip technology and AI infrastructure."

Hollywood writers strike reaches tentative agreement

 Reid Hoffman: AI should not stand for artificial intelligence, but augmented intelligence

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman gave a speech at the graduation ceremony of the University of Bologna in Italy earlier this month.

In his speech, Hoffman mentioned that AI will reshape all of our lives and will become the main technology we use to make decisions and guide our lives.

"We have this technology in our hands, not the other way around. With it, we have the opportunity to enhance and define the future of humanity."

"AI should not be the abbreviation of artificial intelligence (artificial intelligence), but the abbreviation of augmented intelligence (amplification intelligence), because it has the potential to enhance and enhance us."

Regarding AI, Reid Hoffman encouraged "we focus on shaping the tools, which in turn shape us." Based on this task, he provided 3 questions for consideration:

  • The first question is, how do I make better tools?
  • The second question is equally important but may come as a surprise: How do I make the world more beautiful?
  • The third question is, how do I make better tools and increase beauty for the benefit of my fellow humans?

Apple customer service responded that Huawei charger cannot be used

Recently, a blogger discovered that Apple cannot be charged with a Huawei charger, and related topics quickly became a hot search topic.

When asked whether the failure to charge or slow charging is related to the PD protocol, Apple said that there is currently no clear official statement on the protocol, and it is still recommended to use original ones. Huawei also said that it depends on the charging specifications of Apple devices.
