Exciting AI News Roundup

January AI News

All the Latest Updates

Well, I couldn’t be more excited because AI news is really ramping up in January! It’s been a fairly slow month, but this week we’ve got announcements from Google, Microsoft, Apple, YouTube, and more. A lot is happening in the world of AI right now, and it seems like this year is going to be no different. Let’s break it down, starting with the fact that we just got Gemini Ultra from Google.

Google is completely moving away from the BERT brand and going all-in on Gemini with all of their AI products. In fact, if you go to now, you can see the new Gemini Advanced model. It’s exciting to see the advancements in AI technology.

Gemini Ultra

If you go to the updates page on Gemini, you can see that Bard is now Gemini, and the new Gemini Advanced model is available for $20 a month. It uses the Gemini Ultra 1.0 model, which is said to be more capable at highly complex tasks like coding, logical reasoning, and creative collaboration. It’s available in 150 countries and has an Android app with an iOS app in the works.

However, there are mixed reviews about the performance of Gemini Advanced compared to other models like ChatGPT. It’s still in its early stages, but there’s a lot of potential for improvement.

Microsoft Co-Pilot

On the other hand, Microsoft has made some big changes and updates to Co-Pilot. The Super Bowl ad featuring Co-Pilot showcased its capabilities in generating images and assisting with various tasks. The image generation tool within Co-Pilot is quite impressive with options like color pop, blur background, and various filters.

The latest updates to Co-Pilot show the advancements in AI technology for creative purposes. It’s exciting to see how AI is evolving in the world of tech.

Mid Journey Updates

Mid Journey has also made significant updates, allowing users to generate images directly on the website if they have generated more than a thousand images. The new features include various settings for aspect ratios, stylization, weirdness, and model selection to create unique and creative images.

The ability to blend images, set weights, and customize images further enhances the AI art generation capabilities of Mid Journey. It’s a great platform for creating artistic and innovative visuals.

Apple’s MGE Model

Apple is also making strides in AI with its MGE (MLLM Guided Image Editing) model, which enables users to edit and enhance images based on text prompts. The model can perform tasks like making images healthier, removing objects, and adding contrast to simulate more light.

The application of AI in image editing opens up new possibilities for creative expression and visual storytelling. Apple’s advancements in AI technology are shaping the future of digital content creation.

Meta and Open AI

Meta and Open AI are focusing on labeling AI-generated images to distinguish them from real images. The use of metadata and standards like C2P aims to provide transparency and authenticity to visual content created using AI. These initiatives help combat misinformation and ensure the credibility of digital media.

YouTube’s AI Priorities

YouTube’s CEO highlighted AI as a top priority for the platform, emphasizing the role of AI in empowering human creativity. The integration of AI experiments and features like Dream Screen and Music AI Incubator showcase YouTube’s commitment to leveraging AI for content creation and innovation.

Stable Video Diffusion 1.1

Stable Video Diffusion 1.1 offers incremental improvements in video generation capabilities, providing smoother transitions and enhanced visual effects. While AI video generators are evolving rapidly, future models are expected to surpass current standards in video production.

Hugging Face’s Open-Source AI Assistant

Hugging Face’s open-source AI assistant offers customizable AI models for chat interactions and virtual assistants. The integration of AI assistants like Italian Grandma and Prisoner Interrogation Game adds creativity and functionality to chat platforms, enabling diverse conversational experiences.

Smog 72B Model

The Smog 72B model demonstrates the potential of open-source AI models in surpassing proprietary models like GPT-3.5 and Gemini Pro. The accessibility and performance of open-source models pave the way for democratizing AI technologies and fostering innovation in the field.

Achievements in AI

The successful translation of ancient texts using AI showcases the transformative power of AI in historical research and preservation. The collaboration between AI algorithms and human expertise unveils new insights and discoveries that were previously inaccessible, highlighting the value of AI in unlocking the secrets of the past.

  1. Insanity. As if the world isn't bad enough already with humans screwing everything up in government and their sideshow entities.. now you want to help further progress AI into another force of power. Because that's what it will become. It's already causing further anxiety and depression in people's live. But yall over acting like it's all good and a helpful tool. And maybe it is. But for how long? INSANE. ALL OF YOU.

  2. Hi there,

    I'm a hypnotherapist diving into content creation to boost my online presence. I specialize in sports hypnosis and need simple, budget-friendly tools for creating/editing videos and content, ideally compatible with Go High Level (GHL). I've experimented with ChatGPT4 and MidJourney for AI content but am overwhelmed by the tech options available. Can you recommend any user-friendly tools for a tech newbie like me? I'm looking to streamline and enhance my content creation process. Thanks in advance for any advice!

  3. Regarding Smaug 16:06 , what's going on with the Arc test result? GPT and Mistral is clearly a lot higher than Smaug, yet Smaug is marked in bold an din blue. Is it better to have low score on Arc?

  4. AGI is BS. How the heck are these models scoring 80% of these tests, Chat GPT 3.5 is really bad at reasoning. Sure they do the 20-shot, but no one uses it like that. 0-shot for a basic prompt. Chat has never completely answered a question that I genuinely had. The test for me is ask Gemini/GPT 5 the same questions it answered poorly before. I call BS on "AI used to decode an ancient scroll" story AGI is still a tool that can help but doesn't get the job done. Apparently its good at coding but for everything else, google search offers better solutions.

  5. I've heard a lot of concernposting over the years about deep fake videos, of a dangerous dystopic where constantly fake videos will be put out of politicians making speeches they've never made and stuff like that. I really don't think it's gonna be a big deal. It makes perfect sense that AI will be used to counter malicious AI, such as future technology having a kind of anti-malware that instantaneously spots AI generated content and gives you the option of highlighting all AI material with a little symbol to inform you it's not real.

  6. Elevate your brand's storytelling capabilities with Phlanx's Caption Generator , a revolutionary AI solution that transforms mundane captions into compelling narratives, driving customer interest and setting your business apart in the digital landscape.

  7. Maybe you can fake the ID for KYC and pass but to deposit money or withdraw money that ID had to match the bank account. Good luck getting a bank account with a fake AI ID.

  8. As professional data scientist, I find your channel to be one of the most informative and up-to-date on all things ai news. I'm very impressed with your contents. You make weekly ai podcasts feel obsolete. Keep up with the good work.

  9. great video thx ure my fav ai larper 2 tips though use the words shocking and world shaking more often un ure titles and wear a startrek uniform . 😉

  10. 25:36 Hi Matt! Whoa, what a well-timed opportunity! Please enter me in the giveaway!! 😊🙏

    I need an upgrade bad, I have a Radeon RX 6800m and with 4 kids, my guilt/bank account has locked me out from selfishly splurging and upgrading to getting serious building out my own AI opportunity and not relying on cloud services and losing a bit of security as my only option.

    I am a subscriber and have registered to the Nvidia virtual event. I live down the block from Nvidia and can't drive past it daily without getting sucked in an awesome daydream of me building my own AI agent.

    Please consider me for the RTX 4080 SuperGPU giveaway! Your videos has been my go-to and the valuable content you gift out is my heaven, I appreciate you and the mind blowing amount of work you put in! THANK YOU MATT! You are awesome!

  11. C2PA sounds like a great idea, because I already have troubles distinguishing fakes from real things on X. But I wonder how it's gonna work, if you want to modify/retouch your AI generated photo in GIMP. I do that all the them because it rarely manages to generate exactly what I need. I don't mind C2PA to say it was "AI and GIMP generated".

  12. The problem with Geminy for me, personally, is that it treats EACH message as a SEPARATE prompt/interaction. It is impossible to have a coherent conversation with recall of prior messages. As it is now, it definitely is not going to replace ChatGPT 4 for me.
