Long road trips just got easier, with a new AI passenger. 🤖

What’s new? Volkswagen has revealed plans to integrate an AI-powered chatbot, based on OpenAI’s ChatGPT, into select models equipped with its “IDA” voice assistant.

How will this work? This new feature is catered to drivers interested in having an AI companion along with them on their journeys. Activation occurs either through the “Hello IDA” wake word (similar to Siri) or by pressing a button on the steering wheel. Should the voice assistant encounter a request beyond its capabilities, such as something more complex than inquiring about the weather forecast, the query will be discreetly redirected to the AI chatbot. The subsequent response will be relayed through the IDA voice assistant, distinctly indicating the information’s source. Cerence, the software company behind this Chat Pro product, is collaborating with Volkswagen to establish limits on the chatbot’s responses, avoiding sensitive topics like profanity, sex, and geopolitical conflicts.

When will this be available? This AI feature is set to debut in Europe in the second quarter of this year, and it will initially roll out in Volkswagen’s EV lineup, including ID.7, ID.4, ID.5, and ID.3, as well as the new Tiguan, Passat, and Golf models. The U.S. market will most likely see this integration in the future, pending internal approvals.


Nvidia is getting its head out of the “clouds.” ☁️

What’s new? Nvidia has revealed consumer GPUs tailored for “local” AI on PCs and laptops.

What are the new GPUs? The company’s latest offerings, including the RTX 4060 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and RTX 4080 Super (priced between $599 and $999), boast enhanced tensor cores for running generative AI applications such as Adobe Photoshop’s Firefly generator or even to design games that use AI to generate dialogue. These GPUs are going to be integrated into laptops from Acer, Dell, and Lenovo.

Why is this significant? In a landscape where generative AI demands significant computing power, Nvidia proposes a dual-model approach, leveraging cloud resources for intricate tasks while supplying local AI for low-latency applications. Moreover, amidst the U.S. chip ban on China, the export-friendly local graphics cards offer a viable alternative for Chinese researchers and companies seeking powerful GPUs.


They should offer a class on speaking the truth in high school … It'd be a great way for people to earn a foreign language credit. 🤣

What’s up? Duolingo, the famous language learning app, has “offboarded” approximately 10% of contractors as the company harnesses generative AI for faster content production.

Why? CEO Luis von Ahn said AI allows the company to create “new content dramatically faster,” such as new scripts, animations, stories, and videos. He has also emphasized the use of AI to generate voices within the app, as they have introduced Duolingo Max, a premium tier featuring AI-generated feedback and multilingual conversations.

What’s the significance? While Duolingo asserts that the reduction in contractors isn’t a direct replacement with AI, the move exemplifies a broader trend as companies explore AI’s potential to streamline operations. Although many companies are promising AI won’t impact human jobs, the bottom line remains the bottom line when it comes to cutting expenses and streamlining workflows. As it is often said, the proof is in the pudding.
