By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 11 April 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) is still developing at a rapid pace, with breakthroughs occurring in many different fields. This is a summary of the latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), ranging from the drive for worldwide investment in vital resources for AI development to Adobe's entry into the text-to-video market and Google's open-access announcement of its AI editing tools.

Sam Altman advocates worldwide investment in AI infrastructure

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, is urging companies and governments throughout the globe to contribute vital funds to the advancement of artificial intelligence. Altman met with officials from the United Arab Emirates and investors this week to discuss how private businesses may work with nations to develop the costly, expansive infrastructure that artificial intelligence requires. Analogous conversations have been had with representatives from the West, and plans are on for meetings in Washington. In order to establish a network of facilities to produce semiconductors, Altman has been trying to gather billions of dollars from investors throughout the world for a chip enterprise.

To develop a text-to-video technology, Adobe purchases video footage.

By purchasing video samples to incorporate into its text-to-video converter, Adobe is advancing its artificial intelligence efforts. This action follows rival OpenAI's demonstration of related technologies. The massive software company is giving producers $120 for little films that show individuals expressing various emotions and going about their daily lives.  Their AI model will be trained using these clips. Payouts range from $2.62 to $7.25 per minute on average.

AI tools for Google Photos at no cost

Google announced that Magic Editor and Magic Eraser, two of their AI editing tools, would be available to all Google Photos users starting on May 15.

With Magic Editor, you can effortlessly do intricate modifications such as repositioning an object in a photograph, altering the sky or backdrop, and more. This function was limited to the newest Pixel phones, but it is now accessible to any phone or tablet (as long as it matches the basic requirements) that has a Google Photos account. For free users, there is a monthly restriction of 10 revisions; however, more edits may be made by upgrading to a Google One plan.

Magic Eraser is yet another fantastic AI tool. This makes it simple to get rid of undesired items from your pictures.

Experts point out weaknesses in AI assessment techniques

The rapid advancement in power of AI systems is outpacing the capacity of current evaluation techniques. Businesses and governments now have a challenge in managing this quickly evolving technological landscape. Traditional performance, accuracy, and safety measurements are causing worry for experts in the development, testing, and investment of artificial intelligence. They contend that these measurements fall short of capturing the increasing complexity of modern AI models because they are overly straightforward and readily manipulated.

OnePlus and Oppo have teamed together with Google.

The integration of Google's Gemini Ultra into Oppo and OnePlus devices has been disclosed. Later this year, the two smartphone makers want to be the first to introduce features based on the Gemini Ultra platform on smartphones.

Oppo and OnePlus also reaffirmed their commitment to working together to find the ideal combination of operating system, ecosystem, and hardware for improved AI integration. Additionally, OnePlus and OPPO are collaborating with Google to include additional Cloud AI solutions in their next releases. AI will be used in smartphones made by Oppo and OnePlus to do a variety of functions, such as creating new social media material and summarizing audio and news items.
