We strive to inform readers not only about events in the bitcoin industry, but also to talk about what is happening in related technological areas – cybersecurity and in the world of artificial intelligence (AI).
Cryplogger AI collected the most important news from the world of AI over the past week.
- Bard learned how to generate code.
- Startup ex-Apple employees introduced a wearable AI gadget with a projector.
- Bill Gates said that in a year and a half, chatbots will teach children to read.
- OpenAI has allowed chat history to be disabled in ChatGPT.
- A student has developed an AI monocle to help maintain dialogues.
- Singer Grimes allowed AI musicians to use her voice.
- Robodog Spot learned to speak thanks to ChatGPT.
Bard learned to generate code
Google taught Chatbot Bard generate, explain, debug and optimize program code. Also, the tool can write functions for “Tables”.
The company noted that sometimes Bard “does not give the expected result” and is able to create incomplete code. Chatbot responses need to be checked and tested, Google added.
Natives of Apple showed a wearable AI device
Startup Humane, founded by ex-Apple employees, developed wearable AI gadget with a projector.
According to the head of the company, Imran Chaudhry, the device works autonomously without being tied to a smartphone. The gadget is able to process voice commands and gestures, voicing the result or projecting information onto nearby objects, such as a palm.
During the presentation, Chaudhry received a call from his wife and colleague.

The gadget can provide information about missed emails, show messages and calendar notifications, translate text and speak it.
The device is also equipped with a camera with object identification. The head of Humane demonstrated how the system recognized the packaging of a chocolate bar and provided some advice based on the user’s diet.
The release date of the gadget and its price are unknown. However, the company opened waiting list.
Bill Gates: in a year and a half, chatbots will teach children to read
Microsoft founder Bill Gates declaredthat in the next 18 months, AI chatbots will be able to teach children to read.
According to him, the technology needs to be improved. By improving AI’s ability to read and recreate human language, algorithms will become more accurate in mathematics. If developers take some time to refine, artificial intelligence can help teachers and provide feedback, the billionaire said.
He noted that chatbots already have “an incredible ability to read and write fluently.” This will soon help them train students to improve those skills, he said.
Opera announces AI browser
Opera introduced the Opera One browser with AI features. Until the end of 2023, it will replace the flagship web browser on Windows, macOS and Linux devices.
Opera One features a redesigned grouping of tabs called Tab Islands. The browser automatically merges open web pages based on context. For example, when searching for a place to eat, it aggregates tabs with menus and restaurants.
The system marks each group of pages with a vertical colored line and supplements it with hints for easy search.
According to the company, Opera One uses the Multithreaded Compositor engine to smoothly render complex web animations using the device’s GPU.
It is also known that the new default browser will receive integration with ChatGPT and ChatSonic.
For now, Opera One is available in developer preview. Later in 2023 it will be opened to all users.
ChatGPT was allowed not to remember dialogues for further learning
OpenAI Company allowed disable chat history in ChatGPT. Also in the coming months, the company will introduce a business version of the bot.
The new controls are available in the user’s system settings under Data Controls. After disabling the Chat History&Training setting, recent conversations with the bot will disappear from the sidebar, and the company will not be able to use them for AI training.
OpenAI noted that they will only store chats for 30 days and, if necessary, check for abuse.
In addition to the new settings, the possibility of simplified content export has appeared. The option will allow users to send copies of saved OpenAI information to themselves by email.
GitLab introduces coding assistant
GitLab Company taught AI to explain potential vulnerabilities to developers.
The technology is based on a large language model. It will help programmers determine the best way to fix the vulnerability in the context of the codebase. In the future, GitLab plans to teach AI to automatically solve problems it finds.
The company emphasized that it has created artificial intelligence features with privacy in mind and does not plan to use personal customer data to train models.
According to CEO David DeSanto, the overall goal of GitLab for AI is to increase the efficiency of programmers and the entire development lifecycle by a factor of 10.
Grimes allowed her voice to be used to synthesize AI music
Singer Grimes has offered a 50% royalty on “successful” AI-produced music using her voice.
I’ll split 50% royalties on any successful AI generated song that uses my voice. Same deal as I would with any artist i collab with. Feel free to use my voice without penalty. I have no label and no legal bindings. pic.twitter.com/KIY60B5uqt

The singer called the distribution of the fee “the same deal as with any other artist with whom she collaborates.” Grimes has licensed AI creators to use her voice “without penalty” because she has “no label and no legal obligations.”
artist added, which creates a program that can qualitatively imitate her singing. She is also considering uploading stems and samples so that people can train their own algorithms.
By words Grimes, it’s cool to be one with the machine. The performer stated that she likes the idea of open source all art and “kill” copyright.
Spot learned to talk
Robops Spot by Boston Dynamics was taught to talk using ChatGPT and Google’s speech synthesizer.
We integrated ChatGPT with our robots.
We had a ton of fun building this!

According to Santiago Valdarama, an AI expert at partner company Levatas, when performing tasks, robots collect an array of data that was previously difficult to obtain information on demand.
Now Spot can show configuration files and mission results, ask a question and get a voice response.
The Republican Party created a dystopian ad using AI
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has used AI to create a dystopian political ad.
The video is a response to US President Joe Biden’s announcement of participation in the elections in 2024. The video talks about what will allegedly happen if he is re-elected.
The RNC visualized some of the “coming” domestic and international events through AI-generated images. Among them: China’s invasion of Taiwan, massive waves of immigration on the US-Mexico border, and the complete collapse of civilization in San Francisco.
Scientists have developed an AI dance animator
Researchers at Stanford University developed dance AI animator EDGE.
The generative model of artificial intelligence is able to “revive” the character in accordance with any piece of music. It also allows you to edit certain parts of a dance sequence.
In the near future, users will be able to upload their music and movements recorded via a webcam to EDGE.
Specialists launched a website EDGE Playground to demonstrate the capabilities of dance generation technology.
Student creates AI monocle
Stanford student Brian Chang developed RizzGPT AI monocle to help with dialogues.
The device attaches to the glasses and listens to the user’s conversations. When the interlocutor asks a question, the system generates an answer and displays it over the lenses.

Chang combined the GPT-4 algorithm, the Whisper speech recognition platform and an AR device to create RizzGPT Monocle open source.
The student also developed the LifeOS system, which he trained on his personal messages, photos of friends and other data. She is able to recognize Chang’s acquaintances and add “local” details in dialogues with them.
