OpenAI has released ChatGPT Enterprise, an enterprise-grade version of its popular language model, to address the privacy and security concerns of businesses. This enhanced version offers better data protection, high-speed access to GPT-4, and more advanced data analysis capabilities, allowing companies to ask more complex questions. OpenAI assures that user data will not be used for training and will remain under the ownership and control of the enterprise. The new offering is distinct from existing subscription plans and is geared towards organizations that require greater security and customization. It aims to attract businesses that have been reluctant to adopt AI due to data concerns, and competes with vendors specializing in secure access to large language models. The release follows OpenAI's recent move to open GPT-3.5 for custom fine-tuning, suggesting a strategic focus on enterprise needs.

On September 13, Senator Chuck Schumer will initiate a series of closed-door "A.I. insight forums" in Washington, aimed at informing lawmakers about the complexities of regulating artificial intelligence. Tech industry leaders including Elon Musk of Tesla, Sundar Pichai of Google, Sam Altman of OpenAI, Satya Nadella of Microsoft, Jensen Huang of Nvidia, and Eric Schmidt, former Google CEO, will attend. The discussions will focus on the impact of A.I. on jobs, disinformation, and intellectual property, while also highlighting its research benefits, such as in disease control. The forums will also feature representatives from civil rights, labor, and creative communities. While tech companies have varying stances on A.I. regulations, the meetings signal a growing effort to formulate U.S. policy in an area where Europe is already advancing its own laws.

According to a Pew Research Center survey, increasing numbers of Americans are concerned about the growing role of artificial intelligence (AI) in daily life. The study found that 52% of Americans are more concerned than excited about AI, a figure that has risen by 14 percentage points since December 2022. Concerns outweigh excitement across all major demographics, especially among older adults. Public awareness about AI has also risen, and those more aware are increasingly concerned. Despite these general apprehensions, opinions about AI's impact in specific areas, such as online shopping or healthcare, are more mixed. However, a majority believe AI negatively impacts privacy. These views vary by education, income, and gender, with higher-educated and higher-income individuals often seeing AI as more beneficial in specific use-cases, except for privacy concerns.

At its Google Next conference, Google unveiled a series of a AI products and partnerships aimed at attracting large business customers, including General Motors and Estee Lauder. In a bid to counter Microsoft's ambitious AI initiatives, Google released a new version of its custom-built AI chip, TPU v5e, optimized for training large AI models and efficiently serving content. The company also introduced enterprise-scale tools for watermarking AI-generated images, converting databases from Oracle to open-source, and enhancing its suite of office and security software. Google Cloud Chief Thomas Kurian emphasized the need for enterprises to adopt AI methodically, cautioning against adopting generative AI for its own sake.

🛠️ AI tools updates

Google's NotebookLM is a nascent AI-powered note-taking and research tool designed to help users interact with their notes and sources. Still in its prototype stage, it currently accepts Google Docs as source materials and creates a "Source Guide" to summarize key topics, which the user can then explore through a chatbot interface. The chatbot is trained specifically on the user's imported documents, making its responses context-specific and personalized. While the technology is still in its experimental phase and has its limitations, such as unrefined error messages and data import issues, users find the source guides and citations particularly useful. The tool shows potential in revolutionizing how we interact with our data, particularly as it may eventually integrate with Google Docs or Drive, and poses questions about the ethical considerations surrounding personalized AI.

💵 Venture Capital updates

Intuition Robotics has secured $25 million in funding, led by Woven Capital, to expand its AI companion tool, ElliQ, designed to alleviate loneliness among the elderly. The funding will be used to meet growing demand across healthcare organizations and government agencies focused on aging populations. ElliQ provides daily health check-ins, cognitive and physical activities, and connections to family and friends through an easy-to-use interface. Deployed in New York, the tool has proven effective in reducing loneliness for 95% of its users, with individuals engaging up to 30 times a day. As loneliness becomes a growing health concern, likened to smoking 15 cigarettes a day, Intuition Robotics aims to utilize the latest advancements in AI to make ElliQ more personalized and context-driven, while forming new partnerships to increase its reach and impact on healthcare ecosystems.
