Google is integrating Gemini AI features into new Chromebooks, while OpenAI is training a new model to follow GPT-4. Elon Musk’s xAI secures significant funding. Apple and Microsoft expand AI capabilities.

Google's AI Integration in Chromebooks

Google is bringing Gemini and a slew of AI-powered features to ChromeOS, with about seven new Chromebooks coming this year. Additionally, Google Chromebook Plus devices will now include a suite of AI-powered enhancements.

After months of quiet updates, Google announced significant integrations with Gemini across Chromebooks. The new features are designed to enhance user productivity and streamline workflows.

All new Chromebook Plus owners will receive a complimentary year of Google One AI Premium, enabling access to advanced AI functionalities. This marks a substantial upgrade for Chromebook users, providing enhanced tools for both personal and professional use.

OpenAI Safety and New Model Development

OpenAI has confirmed it is training a new flagship AI model to succeed GPT-4, the technology behind the popular ChatGPT. This development underscores OpenAI's commitment to advancing AI capabilities while ensuring safety.

In light of recent departures of key AI researchers, OpenAI has announced the formation of a new safety committee, led by CEO Sam Altman. This move aims to enhance the ethical and safe development of their upcoming AI models.

While the release of GPT-5 may be farther off than expected, OpenAI’s proactive steps indicate a focus on creating more secure and responsible AI technologies. The newly formed safety team highlights the company's dedication to addressing potential risks associated with advanced AI systems.

Elon Musk's AI Ventures and Controversies

Elon Musk has recently embroiled himself in a social media spat with Meta's Chief AI Scientist, Yann LeCun. The argument unfolded over the holiday weekend, with Musk provocatively questioning LeCun's recent contributions to science.

Amidst the controversy, Musk's AI venture, xAI, announced a significant funding achievement. The startup has raised $6 billion, garnering investments from Sequoia Capital and Saudi Arabia. This influx of capital values the AI company at an impressive pre-money valuation of $18 billion, with expectations to hit a $24 billion valuation soon.

AI in Apple Products

Apple is poised to unveil new AI capabilities during its annual developers conference, WWDC. The updates will feature AI enhancements for emoji, photo editing, and messages on iOS 18, as reported by CNET.

The company is also planning to introduce AI-fueled versions of Siri and Spotlight, which are expected to significantly enhance user experience across various apps.

Additionally, Apple has signed a deal with OpenAI to bring ChatGPT to iPhones and is in discussions with Google to potentially integrate Gemini, highlighting its commitment to expanding AI functionality on their platforms.

Microsoft's Copilot AI Integration

Microsoft's CoPilot is now available on Telegram as a bot, but with some limitations. It's a chatbot based on OpenAI’s GPT-4 developed by Microsoft. It has been integrated into many Microsoft products, including Office and Bing. And now, even Telegram users can take advantage of Copilot through a bot that works right from the messaging app.

Microsoft Launcher, its Android home screen app, doesn't get much love these days, but the company has finally gotten around to adding its Copilot AI for easier access via the search widget and Feed. Here's what's new with the latest update.
