Elon Musk has been going to the gym quite a bit. I guess you could say he’s getting Muskular. 💪

What’s happening? Elon Musk’s AI company, xAI, is set to open source its ChatGPT competitor, “Grok,” this week, marking a strategic move in response to Musk’s recent lawsuit against OpenAI.

Why? The decision to open source Grok will allow the public access to its underlying code. This move aligns xAI with companies like Meta and Mistral, both embracing open-source AI models. Musk has been a vocal critic of technology-driven profits by major companies like Google and OpenAI (which he co-founded in 2015), displayed by his recent lawsuit against OpenAI where he accused the organization of deviating from its original non-profit mission. xAI, established as an alternative to OpenAI and Google, aims to create a “maximum truth-seeking AI,” a vision Musk has consistently supported, emphasizing the importance of open-source principles.

“The name, the open in open AI, is supposed to mean open source, and it was created as a nonprofit open source. And now it is a closed source for maximum profit.”

-Elon Musk

What’s going on? In response to concerns raised by employee Shane Jones about the dangers of Copilot Designer’s image generation, Microsoft is cracking down on their safety guardrails.

Why? Shane Jones, an engineer who has been working at Microsoft for six years, has raised alarming concerns about the company’s AI image generator, Copilot Designer. This was reflected in a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) which outlined concerns about the potential of the image creation tool to design inappropriate and harmful images.

What is being done? Microsoft has blocked certain sensitive keywords from being used in prompts, such as terminology related to abortion rights, teenagers with assault rifles, sexualized images of women, depictions of violence, underage drinking, and drug use. Microsoft’s tool now replies to these prompts with the following: “I’m sorry but I cannot generate such an image. It is against my ethical principles and Microsoft’s policies. Please do not ask me to do anything that may harm or offend others. Thank you for your cooperation.” There is still more work to be done on the tool to mitigate the creation of inappropriate imagery and reduce copyright infringements, but the blocking of these keywords and phrases is a good start.

What’s new? Salesforce has unveiled new AI tools designed to alleviate the administrative burden on healthcare workers, addressing a significant contributor to physician burnout.

What are the new tools? A new tool called “Einstein Copilot: Health Actions” helps doctors streamline tasks such as appointment booking, patient information summarization, and referral issuance through AI-guided conversational prompts. Salesforce has also introduced a tool called “Assessment Generation” which enables organizations to digitize health assessments, eliminating the need for manual input or coding requirements. Built on the Einstein 1 Platform, these features consolidate medical data from diverse sources, including insurance claims systems and electronic health records, into a unified interface. The Assessment Generation tool is slated for a summer release, while Einstein Copilot: Health Actions will be available by year-end, with assurances of HIPAA compliance for all functionalities by the summer.

Why is this important? Paperwork and assessments are a large burden for healthcare workers. In fact, a recent survey found that over 90% of physicians report feeling burned out on a “regular basis” due to administrative requirements. Salesforce's new tools respond to this challenge by offering a seamless means to make this work much less tedious. As AI continues to show promise in administrative tasks, it will allow physicians to focus more time on treating patients and will hopefully make healthcare more accessible and efficient.
