Welcome to Beyond the Screen, with your host, Frank Nanninga. On this podcast, we explore the frontiers of artificial intelligence, chatbot technology, and augmented reality and how they are transforming our lives. Every episode, we'll dive into the new and exciting developments in these fields, and the implications they have on our world. So, let's get started and go Beyond the Screen. Microsoft has introduced an upgraded version of its search engine Bing, powered by the AI technology behind the chatbot ChatGPT. The company is also launching new AI-enhanced features for its Edge browser that it says will provide a better experience for web browsing and online information search. The new Bing can offer comments and insights based on users' web searches, and can even answer questions about recent events. The search engine is powered by an upgraded version of the AI language model GPT 3.5, which Microsoft calls the "Prometheus Model." The Edge browser will have "chat" and "compose" features that will offer writing assistance and summarize content on webpages. Google has launched its AI chatbot Bard, a rival to OpenAI's ChatGPT, but the bot's first demo has received criticism from experts who pointed out a factual error. Bard was asked "What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9-year-old about?" and responded with incorrect information that the telescope took the first image of a planet outside of our solar system. The error highlights the issue with AI chatbots, which often "hallucinate" and state false information as fact. Google has stated the importance of a rigorous testing process, which they will begin this week with their Trusted Tester program. China's internet giant Baidu has announced the launch of a generative AI chatbot later this year. The bot, called  "ERNIE Bot" in English, is based on the Enhanced Representation through Knowledge Integration (Ernie) model and is capable of language understanding, language generation, and text-to-image generation. Baidu has over the years aimed to create a system similar to ChatGPT, which uses a 175-billion parameter GPT3 model. ERNIE is bilingual in English and Chinese and is considered superior to all other language models, including GPT-3. Baidu's announcement has caused a surge in its share price. A new article is addressing the environmental impact of large scale machine learning models, specifically the carbon footprint of ChatGPT. The article highlights the significance of the information and communications technology (ICT) sector and data center industry in the contribution towards greenhouse gas emissions, which are a major factor in climate change. The article discusses the need for awareness that digital products, including machine learning models, require energy and therefore have a carbon footprint. It suggests that developers of machine learning models should disclose energy consumption and carbon footprint information, to assess their performance. The carbon footprint of ChatGPT is estimated based on a guesstimate, using data from similar models and a ML CO2 Impact calculator. The daily carbon footprint of ChatGPT is estimated to be 23.04 kgCO2e, equivalent to 0.2% of the annual carbon footprint of an average Dane.

Welcome to Beyond the Screen, with your host, Frank Nanninga. Join us as we explore the exciting and ever-changing world of Artificial Intelligence, ChatGPT, and Augmented Reality. We'll dive deep into the current trends and tech news, discuss the potential of these technologies, and more. So buckle up, we've got a wild ride ahead of us. A new report has revealed that scammers are using a chatbot technology called ChatGPT to steal money from unsuspecting victims. The technology is able to generate convincing fake conversations with victims, convincing them to transfer funds to the scammers. The report also revealed that the scammers are making up to $1 million per month using this technology. The report highlights the need for users to be wary of social engineering scams, such as those using ChatGPT, and to always be aware of the potential for fraud., Spotify founder Daniel Ek has unveiled a new artificial intelligence-powered body scanner. The device, which will be available in 2023, is designed to provide users with real-time health data and medical insights. The scanner uses a combination of sensors, 3D imaging, and AI to detect and analyze a person’s body composition, blood pressure, and other vital signs. According to Ek, the device will be able to provide users with an accurate and comprehensive assessment of their health, and will be able to detect potential health issues before they become serious. The device has the potential to greatly improve the quality of health care, and to provide users with actionable insights into their health.

Welcome to Beyond the Screen, I'm Frank Nanninga and I'm your host. Every day I'll be exploring the fascinating world of AI, ChatGPT, and Augmented Reality. Join me as we delve into the newest advancements in the industry and consider the implications of these technologies and their impact on our lives. Let's get started! Financial influencers are promoting the use of OpenAI's ChatGPT chatbot as a tool to make money with little effort. They are posting videos on platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, claiming that by using the chatbot, one can become a millionaire. The excitement surrounding ChatGPT has sparked interest among the financial influencer community, who are riding the AI trend for attention and profit. The schemes proposed by these influencers, such as using ChatGPT to write blog posts and ad copy, generate YouTube content, or answer questions on Q&A sites, are often dubious and raise questions about accuracy and ethics. While their tutorials receive hundreds of thousands of views, there is also skepticism in the comment section, with other influencers pointing out the unproven and ill-considered nature of the advice. Google is set to host an event on February 8th focused on showcasing its latest advancements in search and AI technology. The virtual event, which will be streamed on YouTube at 8:30 AM ET, will highlight how the company is using AI to improve search and make it more intuitive for users. The timing of the event is notable as Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently announced the company's plans to allow users to interact directly with its AI language models as a companion to search. As competition from Microsoft's integration of ChatGPT into Bing heats up, it will be interesting to see what Google has in store. The event may also showcase updates to popular Google tools such as Google Lens, Translate, Shopping, and Maps., Facebook is set to launch a more affordable version of its current-gen Quest 2 virtual reality headset later this year. The Meta Quest 3 headset is expected to cost between $300 and $500, and will offer support for Meta Reality technology, allowing for the use of augmented reality. The headset is expected to be released in late 2023.
