🧑‍⚖️ OpenAI Cited Again for Data Breach

Plus Taylor Swift’s Deepfakes and the FTC Scrutinizing Big Tech Market Strategy

Hello AI Enthusiast,

Both OpenAI and Google are making big moves this week, forming key partnerships. OpenAI is also enhancing its models but faces legal checks in Italy, while Google showcases Lumiere, a new AI video tool, and joins forces with Hugging Face for AI development.

Before we dive into the news section, let's talk about an opportunity for those who subscribe to the waiting list for our fifth edition of the Master in Prompt Engineering, starting March 4th. We're hosting a webinar titled "How AI Academy Uses Artificial Intelligence and How You Can Too." It’ll take place on Friday, February 2nd, from 6 to 7 pm CET.

In this one-hour event, Gianluca, our CEO, will reveal how AI integrations contributed to our 300% growth last year. He'll demonstrate how we built and use these tools, and how you can do that too.

Given the rapid sell-out of our previous editions, we'll be offering early access to the new edition seats to our waitlist subscribers right after the webinar, before opening them to the general public.

Now, in our last newsletter, we asked for your take on a topic involving AI and creativity. To see what our community thinks scroll down for the poll results.

From our community 🤝

Last week we asked you for your thoughts on AI as a creative companion. These are the results:

Can AI assist the creative process?

🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Yes, AI can enhance creativity. 🤖 (62%)

🟨🟨🟨⬜️⬜️⬜️ No, keep creativity a solely human endeavor. 🧑 (38%)

It looks like many of you think AI can be a good assistant, even for creative work, which we used to think only humans could do.

We also want to highlight some of the comments we got, which are pretty cool.

“If it is used ethically and collaboratively, it can enhance our own creativity, and help to open up new approaches. There is a legalitimacy to the copyright issue, as its output is based upon the "art" and "creative production" of others. But then again, we, as humans, do the same thing. We are all influenced by what has come before us. ”

Answer this week’s poll and see how your opinion compares with the community next week!

OpenAI's Model and Pricing Updates

OpenAI has recently made significant updates to its models and pricing. They've notably reduced costs for their GPT-3.5 Turbo model, cutting input prices by 50% and output by 25%. This is a big deal for those using AI for text-heavy tasks, as it makes advanced AI tools more accessible and affordable. Additionally, OpenAI has enhanced the model to improve performance, ensuring it remains a top choice for developers and users.

Moreover, OpenAI introduced an updated version of GPT-4 Turbo, addressing cases of “laziness” where the model would occasionally not complete tasks. Alongside this, they have released improved text embedding models.

Gianluca has explained it in 5 easy to understand points here.
