Latest updates in Gen AI
Imagine this: you type a description of an object, and voila, an AI system brings it to life in 3D! Researchers from the Australian National University, the University of Oxford, and the Beijing Academy of Artificial Intelligence have made this a reality with “3D-GPT” that can generate 3D models simply from text-based descriptions provided by a user. Now the (3D) world is truly at your fingertips!
Tired of spending hours tweaking your photos over and over again? Enter Imagen! This AI-powered photo editing solution for Lightroom Classic analyzes your previous photo edits to create your personal AI profile. You can then apply the profile to your Lightroom Classic catalog at less than 1/2 second per photo. The AI profile will know exactly what to adjust, whether it’s white balance, exposure, color correction, or more. Half an hour of work reduced to 1/2 a second – not a bad deal, eh?
Google’s Gen AI Universe
The king of the internet is not far behind in the AI race. Google has introduced PaLM 2, a powerful language model that’s here to level up AI’s capabilities. It’s like a Swiss Army knife for AI with multilingual skills, improved reasoning, and coding abilities. Google also unveiled Med-PaLM 2, a version of PaLM 2 tailored for the medical domain. It’s intended to provide more accurate and safe answers to medical questions.
The tech giant’s next plan is to make learning English a breeze with its interactive feature within Google Search. Users can translate to or from English in Google Search, and Search will provide them with prompts, short practice sessions, and personalized feedback. For now, the language learning feature is only available in English in select countries. Google says it will expand the feature to more countries and languages in the future.
Staying on the topic of Google, Google Maps is taking navigation up a notch with “Immersive View.” This AI-powered feature turns flat images into 3D wonders, making landmarks and buildings pop off your screen. Like a pop-up book for adults! The 3D view is rolling out for navigation and should be available to users soon.
The Gen AI revolution by Nvidia
Moving on to Nvidia, the big shot in AI chips is taking it to the next level with the GH200. It’s got a high-end GPU paired with heaps of memory and a snappy processor. In simpler terms, it’s like getting a souped-up engine for your AI projects, and it’s designed to make AI more accessible and affordable.

In more exciting news, Nvidia and Foxconn are teaming up to create “AI factories,” a game-changer in manufacturing. These data centers will use Nvidia chips for everything from training autonomous vehicles to robotics platforms and large language models. Think of it as the factory of the future, where intelligence is the product!
Salesforce and Microsoft
Ever wish you had a genius sidekick for your business tasks? Well, it seems like the people over at Salesforce heard your wish and made it come true! In September, Salesforce introduced Einstein Copilot, an AI assistant that can do it all. It can summarize video calls, answer customer queries, and even whip up emails for marketing campaigns. Users will be able to embed the assistant into their websites or integrate it with messaging platforms such as Slack and Meta Platform’s WhatsApp. Amazing, isn’t it?
The power of Studio (Einstein Copilot) is that it’s the place where all the components are accessible from across the Salesforce platforms, which is a major part of simplifying prompts and skill creation for admins that address real-world use cases specific to organizational needs.Brent Leary, founder and principal analyst at CRM Essentials
And now, last but certainly not least, comes the tech giant – Microsoft. This one’s really interesting. Have you found yourself worrying about copyright issues with AI-generated content? Well, Microsoft’s got your back. In a recent announcement, Microsoft claimed that it’s willing to pay legal damages on behalf of customers using its AI products if they are sued for copyright infringement for the output generated by such systems. Now, that’s called bringing in the big guns!
So there you have it – the latest and greatest updates in the world of generative AI! But wait, there’s more excitement brewing on the horizon. GenAI is not going anywhere anytime soon. We can look forward to even more innovations and game-changing developments. With the way Gen AI is progressing, the future is going to be a wild ride! And just like you, we’re all strapped in for this roller coaster.
