What’s new? Chromebook Plus laptops now come equipped with powerful Google AI features.

What are the new features?

  • Help Me Write: With a right click, this tool enables users to refine their text or generate text from a simple prompt.

  • Magic Editor: This tool simplifies photo adjustments with intuitive controls. To activate this feature, users just have to “tap or circle the object you want to edit, hold and drag to reposition, or pinch to resize them. You can also use contextual suggestions to improve the lighting and background, reimagining your photo with a few easy clicks.”

  • Wallpaper and Backgrounds: This tool enables users to create unique wallpapers and video backgrounds from simple prompts.

  • Gaming Dashboard: This tool enables users to customize their gaming experience with new features like mapping game controls, so you can play any mobile game and map controls to your keyboard.

  • GIF Recording: With the built-in screen capture tool, users can automatically save screen recordings in GIF format to make homemade demos or reaction GIFs.

  • Gemini: Integrated directly into Chromebook Plus, Gemini supports diverse tasks from trip planning to document analysis.

What’s coming in the future? Along with these AI-infused features, Google announced that they are working on something called Project Gameface, which will be built in to ChromeOS and will allow users to “compose and send an email, open and use an app, or browse the web, all without using the keyboard or needing to download and manage third-party software.”


Am I the only one that can never spell “lisencing” correctly? 😖

What’s up? OpenAI has struck a new licensing deal with The Atlantic, adding to their new collection of partner news and media outlets.

What’s the deal? This new partnership means articles from The Atlantic will be discoverable within OpenAI’s products, including ChatGPT. When a query surfaces information from The Atlantic, the response will include attribution and a link to read the full article on their website. As part of this agreement, The Atlantic’s product team will have privileged access to OpenAI technology, which will allow them to work on their experimental microsite called Atlantic Labs—a site which aims to offer new products and features to better serve its journalism and readers.

“We believe that people searching with AI models will be one of the fundamental ways that people navigate the web in the future. We’re delighted to partner with OpenAI, to make The Atlantic’s reporting and stories more discoverable to their millions of users, and to have a voice in shaping how news is surfaced on their platforms.”

-Nicholas Thompson, CEO of The Atlantic


Q: Why was the brain afraid to take a bath?

A: It didn’t want to get brainwashed. 🧼

What’s new? Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco, have developed a groundbreaking brain implant that uses AI to help a stroke survivor communicate in both Spanish and English. These scientists, from Chang Lab, are the same scientists that helped stroke survivor Ann speak via an AI avatar for the first time in 18 years.

How did this happen? Published in Nature Biomedical Engineering, the study details the journey of Pancho, a native Spanish speaker who suffered a severe stroke at age 20, leaving him paralyzed and unable to speak. Led by neurosurgeon Dr. Edward Chang, Pancho received his first neural implant in February of 2019. Utilizing a neural network, the implant decodes words from brain activity, enabling communication. Initially effective only in English, the technology was recently refined to support bilingual communication.

“Speech decoding has primarily been shown for monolinguals but half the world is bilingual with each language contributing to a person’s personality and worldview. There is a need to develop decoders that let bilinguals communicate with both languages.”

-Chang Labs
