VICTORIA’S SECRET IS AI 🤫
I know Victoria’s Secret … it’s AI. 🤖
What’s up? Victoria’s Secret (VS) is collaborating with Google Cloud to enhance their online shopping experience with AI.
What is the point? This partnership will explore the integration of a generative AI-powered conversational assistant, designed using Google Cloud’s Vertex AI platform. This chatbot, featured on the VS website, will offer tailored product recommendations and advice based on individual preferences and life experiences, catering to diverse customer needs. On top of this chatbot, the VS team is looking to use AI to learn from customer data and customize marketing emails, providing individualized recommendations. Beyond the customer experience, VS also plans to explore ways to integrate Google Cloud’s AI technologies into internal operations, including marketing, customer sentiment analysis, supply chain optimization, and HR initiatives.
GRAPHIC DEEPFAKES OF TAYLOR SWIFT UNDERSCORE BIGGER PROBLEM 😳
The question we all want to know … is a proposal coming? 💍
What happened? Graphic AI-generated images depicting Taylor Swift in explicit acts related to the Kansas City Chiefs are circulating online. The explicit content is being hosted on the notorious Celeb Jihad website, known for outrunning cyber-crime investigators.
What’s the response? Swift, a regular attendee at Chiefs games in support of her boyfriend Travis Kelce, has yet to comment on the matter. Outraged fans, however, have taken to social media, expressing concerns about the lack of regulations and laws against nonconsensual deepfake pornography. Most of these fans somehow blame Elon Musk for the incidents … telling him to “get it together.” This reveals a massive public misunderstanding of AI technology, even though it has garnered massive attention over the past two years
What’s the bigger issue? The problem extends beyond Swift, with a recent analysis revealing over 143,000 new deepfake videos were posted in the past year, surpassing every other past year combined! Calls for the shutdown of websites like Celeb Jihad are mounting, as advocates and legal experts push for federal regulations to protect victims and combat the escalating issue of AI-generated explicit content. President Joe Biden signed an executive order in October that attempted to address this issue, making the use of generative AI to produce child sexual abuse material or non-consensual “intimate imagery of real individuals” a highly punishable offense. However, tracking down the minds behind these AI deepfakes and enforcing punishments against the monting amount of them out there is a task that might be far too unreasonable. As one concerned parent remarked, we “might not see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
U.S. GOVERNMENT PARTNERS WITH TECH GIANTS FOR RESEARCH 🤝
Getting the government involved is always a good thing, right? 😆
What’s new? The National Science Foundation (NSF) is collaborating with major tech giants to launch the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR), a task group aimed at fostering innovation and leadership in AI research.
What’s the purpose? NAIRR will serve as a vital resource for educators and researchers across the United States. The team will aim to make sure that people from different communities, including smaller colleges and rural institutions, can access the best AI resources. The goal is to make the most developed AI resources available to everyone, giving researchers a chance to use the best models and allowing schools to teach students about AI systems through hands-on experience. The program depends on contributions from tech companies, encouraging teamwork between the government and private businesses to set global standards in AI innovation and distribution. Notable partners in this two-year initiative include Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Nvidia, and OpenAI, among others.
