Now Creating ‘Angry AI Girlfriends’

A new chatbot app, AngryGF, designed to simulate interactions with an angry girlfriend, aims to teach users, particularly men, how to navigate relationship conflicts. Developed by Emilia Aviles, the app offers scenarios where users must improve the AI’s mood and forgiveness level through appropriate responses. Aviles created AngryGF after noting a lack of emotional support in relationships, hoping the app will provide a practical tool for enhancing empathy and communication skills.

Microsoft Unveils Phi-3 Mini, a Compact AI Model

Microsoft has released Phi-3 Mini, the smallest model in its new series of AI models, featuring 3.8 billion parameters. Designed for efficiency, it performs comparably to much larger models and is tailored for use on personal devices. The model, which is trained on a simplified dataset resembling children’s books, is available on platforms like Azure and Hugging Face. Phi-3 Mini is part of Microsoft’s strategy to provide powerful yet cost-effective AI solutions for various applications.

AI Predicts Political Orientations from Blank Faces, Raising Privacy Concerns

Researchers have found that AI can predict a person’s political orientation from their expressionless facial images, presenting serious privacy implications. The study, highlighted by lead author Michal Kosinski from Stanford University, involved AI analyzing numerical “fingerprints” of faces to ascertain political views, which could exacerbate the risks associated with facial recognition technology. The findings emphasize the need for stringent regulations on biometric surveillance to protect personal privacy.

AI Chatbots in Healthcare: A Mixed Blessing

Medical experts are divided over the integration of AI chatbots in healthcare, citing concerns about their accuracy and reliability. The World Health Organization has launched an AI health assistant named Sarah, which has faced criticism for not including current U.S.-based medical advisories. While AI chatbots can potentially streamline patient care and reduce clinician burnout, their varying effectiveness raises questions about their ability to safely support patient care. Experts emphasize the need for AI systems to be trained on diverse and high-quality data to enhance their accuracy.

AI Revolutionizes Gene Editing with CRISPR

A groundbreaking AI system, developed by Profluent, is now capable of designing mechanisms for DNA editing, opening up new possibilities in medical science for treating genetic diseases with unprecedented precision. This technology, detailed in a recent research paper, utilizes generative AI to craft blueprints for gene editors by analyzing vast datasets of biological information, similar to how ChatGPT learns to generate text.

New AI Model Developed to Generate Dangerous Content for Training Purposes

Scientists have developed a ‘toxic AI’ that is intentionally designed to think of harmful queries, a method known as curiosity-driven red teaming (CRT). This AI helps in training other AI systems to filter out unsafe content more effectively. By generating a diverse array of dangerous prompts, this method improves upon traditional techniques that rely on human-generated lists, potentially revolutionizing the way AI models are made safer before public release.

Meta’s AI Integration Sparks User Discontent

Meta’s decision to integrate its AI-powered assistant into key features of its social media apps like Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp has led to widespread user frustration. The sudden change, primarily affecting the search functions, has confused users, turning simple searches into interactions with the AI assistant. Despite the company’s intention to advance its AI technology, many users are seeking ways to revert to the traditional search functions, expressing dissatisfaction on various social platforms. Meta, however, currently offers no option to disable the AI feature.

China’s iQiyi Targets Aging Population with AI-Enhanced Content

Chinese streaming giant iQiyi, often referred to as the “Netflix of China,” has shifted its focus to the aging population, utilizing AI to enhance content production and adapt to the demographic’s needs. As China faces rapid aging, iQiyi’s CEO, Gong Yu, emphasized at their annual conference the importance of catering to older audiences who face challenges like deteriorating eyesight. The company, which reported its first profit since its 2018 U.S. listing, is also exploring AI for efficient content creation and planning to expand internationally.
