According to Verge (1). Amazon plans to add AI Chatbot technology to Alexa, citing that the voice assistant needs reanimation after generative AI like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Brad AI has taken over with global recognition and effectiveness.
In February 2023, Amazon unveiled a new male voice for Alexa in India. To power Alexa, it mostly relies on its "own" built Large Language Model, and it describes its in-house LLM as the "Alexa Teacher Model."
According to an Amazon spokesperson, the company primarily focuses on developing a more generalized and capable model to make Alexa quicker and more conversational. The "Alexa LLM Entertainment Use Case" stated that the new AI system would create media suggestions, conversational storytelling, and deliver high-end news.
However, it should be noted that all these AI advancements from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others are now starting and generating following enormous layoffs intended to target post-pandemic loss. However, they have now signaled a different direction to explore the cause.
Microsoft is working on a new version of ChatGPT
First, Microsoft implemented ChatGPT's GPT-4 AI into Bing Chat to provide users with a similar chatbot experience. Now, the company is working on an update of ChatGPT, focusing on business and privacy concerns about the technology (2).
Microsoft's privacy-focused ChatGPT would run on dedicated servers. Microsoft's privacy-focused ChatGPT will store data on dedicated Azure cloud server units for exclusive enterprises.
Data on the dedicated server will not communicate to the main ChatGPT system, which means it maintains private distribution and interactions. Enterprises must pay a premium to use the service because it is a customized, high-end experience geared toward privacy concerns.
According to the article, the service might cost ten times what clients presently pay for ChatGPT, which is $20 more than usual. This would probably attract several large tech and finance companies that prevent their staff from utilizing public or free chatbots to rethink their improved security measures.
Samsung recently banned ChatGPT from its company servers because a few workers were discovered sharing confidential information with the Chatbot, which might lead to a long-term privacy nightmare.
The new version is scheduled to be released later in the year, and OpenAI expressed interest in providing something comparable to enterprise customers. According to the CEO of OpenAI, "the company stopped training its AI LLM models such as GPT with paying customers' data for a while."
The US government has also raised the privacy issue, as POTUS Joe Biden met with prominent executives from Microsoft, Google, OpenAI, and Anthropic to explore potential AI concerns (3).
What is ChatGPT Code Interpreter Plugin?
The ChatGPT code interpreter plugin is designed to improve ChatGPT's coding skills by integrating a Python interpreter capable of handling qualitative and quantitative mathematical obstacles, data visualization tasks, and data analysis (4).
It makes file conversion into many formats easier. Another significant application is the ability to execute minimal video editing operations, such as making MP4 videos with a gradual zoom effect from GIFs.
Another useful feature is the plugin's ability to generate visualized maps from location data. Users can ask ChatGPT to make a GIF highlighting mountain-high locations with snowflakes.
The plugin also makes file uploading and downloading easier by automatically compressing huge photos and extracting colors from images to generate a PNG file.
The new version has unlocked various avenues of Chatbot's capabilities. Developers now have a powerful tool at their fingertips to harness ChatGPT's potential in various sectors, indicating a bright future for ChatGPT.
