2. Big Tech’s AI leaves businesses exposed to copyright claims
Cloud giants like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google offer limited copyright protection for AI tools. While they boast AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants, concerns about using copyrighted data in these models linger. Their legal shields only cover models they directly develop, leaving businesses potentially exposed to lawsuits. Experts urge caution, emphasising the narrow scope of these protections, Financial Times reported.
3. Layered Reality’s AI hologram of Elvis offers “time-travel” experience
Layered Reality’s CEO, Andrew McGuinness, describes the AI hologram of Elvis Presley as a “time-travel” experience, which is quite distinct from Abba Voyage. The Elvis Evolution show immerses visitors in intricate sets, allowing them to interact with actors and step into the iconic singer’s life. Using temperature, taste, and smell, McGuinness aimed to transport people to Memphis in 1958. The AI generates an authentic Elvis, born from original material, offering a unique, interactive entertainment format, according to a BBC report.
4. Deloitte implements AI chatbot ‘PairD’ for employee productivity boost
Deloitte introduces “PairD,” an AI chatbot, to 75,000 employees in Europe and the Middle East. The internal tool aims to enhance productivity by generating PowerPoint presentations, writing emails, and coding. Deloitte advises users to validate the chatbot’s output for accuracy and completeness due to potential inaccuracies about people, places, and facts. Unlike competitors, Deloitte developed its AI chatbot internally, reflecting the professional services industry’s growing adoption of generative AI, Financial Times reported.
