Darioโ€™s Picks

I.

Meta announced a bunch of new AI experiences across their devices and apps at their recent Connect event. This is huge.

Hereโ€™s the most interesting launches:

  • Meta AI โ€“ a conversational assistant similar to ChatGPT. Will be available on WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram and the new Ray-Ban Smart Glasses. Powered by the Llama 2 model.
  • 28 custom AI characters, with unique personalities and areas of expertise. Many are represented by AI versions of celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Mr Beast and Kendall Jenner.

II.

Browse with Bing inside ChatGPT is back โ€“ in a new and improved version. It now also gives you direct links to sources, making the information more verifiable. This puts ChatGPTโ€™s native functionality for real-time web access up to the level of Bing and Bard, which has already had this feature since the beginning.

To activate it on iOS, you have to select the three dots menu, go to Settings, New Features and tap the switch for Browse with Bing. It will then be possible to select under GPT-4 when you start a new chat.

In Focus

The way we relate to AI is evolving

AI is becoming more human-like, and more available in the same exact place as our regular social interactions. Iโ€™m referring to ChatGPTโ€™s new voice and image features, and Meta AI with its universe of virtual characters becoming directly available on WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram.

The idea that most people will start to bond in human-esque ways with AI has seemed somewhat faint to me up to this point, but is quickly becoming more believable as AI assistants start to have realistic, empathetic voices, can see and understand the world visually, and have personalities.

AI characters for companionship, role play, support and entertainment is already an immense hit on platforms like Character.ai. As a purely text-based platform for AI characters that is not part of a bigger social ecosystem, it has grown to 200 million visitors in just a few months.

The notion of AI being able to offer authentic companionship was compellingly illustrated in a recent article on Platformer:

โ€

โ€œYou can imagine the next steps here. A bot that gets to know your quirks; remembers your life history; offers you coaching or tutoring or therapy; entertains you in whichever way you prefer. A synthetic companion not unlike the real people you encounter during the day, only smarter, more patient, more empathetic, more available.โ€ - Casey Newton, Platformer, 29 Sept 2023

โ€

While AI has already demonstrated its value for productivity, a new frontier explores to what extent we will bond and form human-like relationships with it.
