I’ve never been good at “the robot” dance, but I can still cook up tastier french fries than a machine! 🍟

What’s going on? The world's first AI ballet is opening today at the Leipzig Opera House in Germany and is running through July 8th. The performance is called, “Fusion” and is directed by speech artist and musician Harry Yeff in collaboration with associate composers Gadi Sassoon and Teddy Riley.

How is AI implemented? This performance uses generative AI to inspire all parts of the composition including the audio, choreography, and even the costumes. In this way, the ballet visually captures the journey towards harmony, drawing from Plato's concept of the divided self.

It remains to be seen whether this will compel or repel those interested in ballet, but nonetheless, it goes to show how AI is leaking into all areas of humanity, including the arts. 💃

Also, How many people have to call for AI regulation before something gets done?

What happened? In an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation" yesterday, Brad Smith, the President of Microsoft, emphasized the need for responsible regulation of AI, and he said he believes it will come at some point this year. Smith stressed the importance of addressing potential risks associated with AI technology, calling for government intervention to establish guidelines and standards.

Why is he calling for regulation? Smith acknowledged the transformative power of AI but expressed concerns about its potential misuse, such as deepfakes and biased algorithms. He highlighted the need for regulations that ensure transparency, accountability, and ethical use of AI across various sectors. According to Smith, "We need to be able to say to the public and to each other that there are certain things that artificial intelligence should never be used for." He emphasized the role of both the tech industry and policymakers in crafting regulations that protect individuals' rights, preserve privacy, and promote fairness in AI applications.

Microsoft, who has partnered with large-scale AI companies, has been actively involved in advocating for responsible AI practices and supporting regulation efforts. Smith's interview serves as a reminder of the industry's commitment to address potential risks and harness the benefits of AI in a responsible manner. 🦾


The French Open is serving up groundbreaking anti-cyberbullying technology which is using AI to improve the mental health of professional athletes. 👍

What’s going on? The French Open, one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world, plans to implement AI-driven technology to reduce instances of online harassment targeted at players. Tournament director, Julien Huet, emphasized the importance of player well-being by stating, "Our priority is to ensure a safe and respectful environment for all participants, both on and off the court." By leveraging AI learning capabilities, the French Open aims to protect players from the harmful effects of online harassment, ultimately fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment within the tennis community.

How does this work? This AI-powered solution scans social media platforms and online forums, using sophisticated algorithms to detect harmful content and flag potential threats with more accuracy than the platforms can do themselves. This proactive approach allows authorities to intervene swiftly and provide support to affected players’ mental health and reputations.

Why is this important? Four-time Glam Slam winner, Naomi Osaka, cited depression and anxiety when she decided to withdraw from the 2021 French Open. She attributed most of these struggles to harmful and threatening social media posts. Several men's tennis players have also acknowledged battles with depression, including Nick Kyrgio. During last year’s major tournaments, he said, "Most would assume I was doing OK mentally or enjoying my life ... but it was one of my darkest periods," attributing most of that to harmful posts directed towards him.

Mental health is, in many ways, just as important as physical health to these athletes, and AI could play an integral part in allowing these athletes to perform at their highest level and enjoy life both inside and outside of the arena. 🙏
