Leading AI companies including Google, Microsoft, and Meta have developed an “accord” to address the growing threat of AI-generated content in elections. While the agreement does not outright ban deceptive political AI content, it aims to develop technology to identify, label, and control such content. AI-generated images, known as “deepfakes,” have become increasingly realistic and widespread, posing risks to fair elections. Examples of deceptive AI content in past elections include mimicking the voices of political figures and robocalls urging voter suppression. Tech companies have faced pressure to combat the spread of fake election content and this accord reaffirms their commitment to transparency and education on the issue.
Google DeepMind’s AlphaFold and other AI programs are revolutionizing drug discovery by predicting protein structures and accelerating clinical trials. The latest version of AlphaFold has achieved atomic accuracy and can potentially transform the pharma and biotech R&D pipeline. AI-based drug discovery companies have already shown promising results, with several candidates reaching the clinical trial stage within a decade of discovery. AI has the potential to cut the drug discovery cycle by 40%, but challenges remain, such as selecting the right patients for studies and determining the effectiveness of AI-designed molecules. Despite these challenges, optimism about the future of AI in drug discovery is growing.

The Pokemon Company is teaming up with AI company HEROZ Corporation to develop an AI technology called Pokemon Battle Scope (PBS) that enhances the viewing experience of Pokemon battles. The AI will interpret and predict moves during battles, providing real-time statistics and insights for viewers to understand the action better. The upcoming Pokemon Dragon King Tournament in 2024 will be the first showcase of PBS, giving viewers a chance to see the AI in action. This innovative use of AI aims to make Pokemon battles more engaging and accessible to all viewers.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued guidance clarifying that AI-assisted inventions are not categorically unpatentable, but human contributions must be a focus. The guidance is a result of feedback received in response to the USPTO’s call for comments on AI inventorship. The guidance explains that AI systems, although instrumental in the creation of inventions, cannot be listed as inventors. The document also emphasizes the importance of significant human contributions to each claim in a patent application or patent. The guidance includes examples to illustrate how AI-assisted inventions will be assessed during the examination.
Influencers and reality TV stars share their thoughts on how AI will affect the future of dating. While some view AI as a positive tool, especially for socially awkward individuals, others express concerns about its impact on the authenticity of relationships.
