What’s new? X (formerly Twitter) has introduced Stories, a feature powered by Elon Musk’s Grok chatbot which summarizes trending stories for users.

How does it work? This new feature is available to X’s Premium subscribers and offers a brief overview of posts related to each trending story on the “For You” tab in Explore. These summaries, aptly called “Grok’s Stories,” provide users with a quick glance at the news and discussions popular within their network.

What’s the significance? Grok’s Stories can help users grasp the essence of a story without diving too deeply. While the summaries can be helpful for a quick overview, they may lack depth since they focus on the chatter around the news rather than the news itself. Not to mention, this approach has sparked some controversy due to concerns about misinformation and the impact on traffic to news sites. Despite these challenges, however, this new feature is a testament to how AI continues to shape the way people consume news. The long-term impact on traditional news sources remains to be seen.


I found a video on YouTube titled, “How to stop procrastinating.” I thought it was beneficial to me since I am constantly procrastinating, so I saved it to watch later. 🙃

What’s new? YouTube is testing a new AI-powered feature called “Jump Ahead,” which allows viewers to jump ahead to the most-watched part of any video.

How does it work? Available to Premium YouTube subscribers, Jump Ahead leverages machine learning and user view history to guide viewers to the most engaging sections of a video, improving the viewer experience by allowing quicker access to the most interesting content. The feature is quite easy to access. According to 9to5Google, this is how it works: “After double-tapping to skip ahead, you’ll see a button that ‘jump[s] you to where most viewers typically skip ahead to.’ The pill-shaped ‘Jump ahead’ button appears for a few seconds in the bottom-right corner before disappearing if you just wanted to go ahead by 10 seconds.”

Why is this important? This feature is changing the way people navigate videos and aligns with a public desire for shorter, more easily consumable content. However, by enabling viewers to easily skip parts of videos, there is a risk that creators may see reduced ad revenue, as ads are often placed throughout a video. It will also cause YouTubers, for better or for worse, to question whether they want to include certain content in their video that might easily be skipped over. This could inspire more engaging videos altogether.


Q: What do you get when you play a country music song backwards?

A: You get your wife back, your dog back, and your truck back. 🤠

What’s up? Randy Travis, the beloved country singer, has made a remarkable comeback with the release of a new song, “Where That Came From,” marking his first new material since a 2013 stroke left him unable to sing or speak properly. This was done with the help of AI.

What’s the significance? Many recreations of work from artists have caused people to sound the alarms, calling the AI renditions poorly fabricated or harmful. This has resulted in Tennessee’s recently-passed ELVIS Act, which goes into effect on July 1st and will allow labels to take legal action against those using software to recreate an artists’ voice without permission. But the new Travis creation is hitting people a bit differently, showing how beautiful AI voice cloning and music creation can be in the right hands and with the support of the original artist.
