🤖 PwC’s Massive AI Integration

Plus, Google's Fixes and OpenAI's Safety Steps

Hello AI Enthusiast,

Google has tackled the bizarre responses from their AI Overviews, explaining what went wrong and how they're fixing it. PwC is making waves by partnering with OpenAI. Meanwhile, OpenAI is revamping its safety measures after some key team members left.

Before we dive into the details, we’ve released something we think you’ll love. 🤩

If you’ve tried using ChatGPT, you know it can be hard to get exactly what you want. Many people get frustrated and give up. Don’t do that! We’re here to help with a free course!

Why make it free?

Our high-end programs often exclude those new to these tools. To democratize AI knowledge, this free course will teach you how to use ChatGPT confidently, understand what happens behind the scenes, and discover the potential of this powerful technology.

The Big Picture 🔊

PwC Teams Up with OpenAI

PwC teamed up with OpenAI to become the first big resale partner and the largest user of their ChatGPT Enterprise. Over 100,000 PwC employees in the U.S. and U.K. will get access to advanced AI tools, which will be integrated into PwC's services to boost efficiency and enhance audit, tax, and consulting solutions for clients.

💡Our Take: PwC isn't just reselling ChatGPT Enterprise; they're also going to help businesses implement it, which shows they're getting a lot of client interest and want to be ready for different use cases. It's interesting to think about how this fits with OpenAI's partnership with Microsoft, as you’d expect Microsoft to lead the way here. Just like PwC, we know AI is changing how we work. That's why we offer corporate training to help teams use AI effectively in their daily tasks.

PwC chose ChatGPT for its employees but which AI model do you prefer to use?

Google Addresses AI Overviews' Odd Responses

Last week, we told you about screenshots of odd responses from Google AI Overviews, and a few days ago, Google addressed this issue in a blog post. They explained that the errors were due to misinterpreting queries, language nuances, and limited high-quality content for unusual questions. To fix this, they said they improved detection for nonsensical queries, limited the inclusion of satirical and user-generated content, and implemented stricter content policies.

💡Our Take: Google used this article to plainly explain to anyone what happened. On one hand, they justify themselves by arguing that the questions were silly and, in some cases, never made before. On the other hand, we believe they have enough resources to test features more thoroughly before making them publicly available. In any case, based on the questions asked, it seems that people enjoy finding mistakes whenever a new AI feature is released.

OpenAI's New Safety Steps

After a few rocky weeks with key exits from their safety team, OpenAI announced that they've managed to disrupt several covert influence operations using their AI, making sure these bad actors didn't get any extra mileage from their tools. They've also set up a new Safety and Security Committee, which will spend the next 90 days figuring out the best safety measures for their projects.

💡Our Take: It seems like OpenAI is trying to reassure everyone that they're still serious about safety and regulation, especially after losing some key team members. Honestly, it feels a bit like a marketing move; they mentioned blocking several accounts, but they weren’t very clear on how dangerous those accounts actually were. Plus, this kind of work isn't unique, every tech company is cracking down on fake accounts these days.
