AI vs Art Directors

If you are reading this, you probably grew up making drawings using colour pencils and crayons. Before you scoff at how ridiculously broad such a segmentation is, consider the radical future that awaits us in this aspect. The generation born right now will probably not go through this process.

I am not an overzealous futurist, but I am as bummed out as the next guy by the fact that we don’t have flying cars like in The Jetsons. But I am a parent, and the experiences I have gone through in the last couple of months with my eight-year-old ‘playing around’ with AI tools makes me think that very soon the expression ‘back to the drawing board’ will be as meaningless as the floppy disk masquerading as the save icon.

Better Siri is coming: what Apple’s research says about its AI plans

Published

It would be easy to think that Apple is late to the game on AI. Since late 2022, when ChatGPT took the world by storm, most of Apple’s competitors have fallen over themselves to catch up. While Apple has certainly talked about AI and even released some products with AI in mind, it seemed to be dipping a toe in rather than diving in headfirst.

But over the last few months, rumors and reports have suggested that Apple has, in fact, just been biding its time, waiting to make its move. There have been reports in recent weeks that Apple is talking to both OpenAI and Google about powering some of its AI features, and the company has also been working on its own model, called Ajax.

If you look through Apple’s published AI research, a picture starts to develop of how Apple’s approach to AI might come to life. Now, obviously, making product assumptions based on research papers is a deeply inexact science — the line from research to store shelves is windy and full of potholes. But you can at least get a sense of what the company is thinking about — and how its AI features might work when Apple starts to talk about them at its annual developer conference, WWDC, in June.

Urgent Action Needed to Stop AI Developers From ‘Destroying’ Artists’ Careers, Say British Lawmakers

A U.K. parliamentary committee is calling on the British government to introduce tough new laws that would make it illegal for artificial intelligence (AI) developers to use copyright-protected music for training purposes without consent – and protect creators and artists from the unauthorized use of their voice and image in AI-generated works.

A report from the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Music published Wednesday (May 1) says that regulating artificial intelligence would help ensure creators and consumers in the United Kingdom, the world’s third-biggest music market, are protected from the “threats” AI poses to the music business, while still harvesting its benefits.

When Artificial Intelligence Steers the Ballot: The Dark Art of ChatGPT and Voter

Published

In the digital amphitheater of modern democracy, a new actor takes the stage: ChatGPT. As the world barrels toward pivotal elections and democratic displays, technologies like OpenAI‘s ChatGPT throw a sharp light on the complexities of political engineering and influence. Contrasting the benign use of AI for enhancing customer support or improving productivity, when wielded within the political sphere, the narrative turns more contentious—spotlighting the invasive prowess of artificial intelligence to potentially subvert a sacred human right: free and fair elections.

Beyond functionality, ChatGPT’s application in politics broaches crucial ethical territories and begs the question: How far is too far when digital tongues sway the human condition? This new age of political communication, where AI-generated content mimics the personal touch of a local campaigner, offers a breeding ground for new levels of voter manipulation. Gone are the days of broadcast politics where one message had to fit all. Now, ChatGPT devises micro-targeted dialogues, oratory curated to the last detail, designed to resonate with individual ethos and fears, potentially shifting the many into a paradigm crafted by the few.
