Meta shifts focus to AGI

Jordan Wilson [00:03:10]:
Alright. Let's get this AI news recap party started. So here's the news that actually matters for you this week. Alright. So, Zuckerberg Mark Zuckerberg, Meta's Chief everything officer, is going all in on AGI, artificial general intelligence. Ready? Here's here's the facts, and then I'm gonna give you my take. So Zuckerberg has revealed Meta's goals to build artificial general intelligence, AGI, and achieve superhuman intelligence capabilities. So Meta is formerly known as Facebook.

Jordan Wilson [00:03:42]:
It's ramping up its AI research group called FAIR to develop generative AI products across all of its apps. Also, Meta is stockpiling an impressive number of NVIDIA GPUs. Zuckerberg is already flexing the computing power needed to train Large language models. He went on an Instagram live and announced that their GPU stockpile by the end of the year will reach about 600,000 NVIDIA GPUs. Yes. I talked about it on the show last week. I said watch NVIDIA stock. It obviously, took a huge jump, you know, in the hours and days following, this news.

Jordan Wilson [00:04:18]:
But this announcement has raised some concerns about who will control this AGI and the potential risk and Consequences of creating such a powerful AI because here's here's, what we have to keep in mind, like like Nancy's asking here, open source AGI. Yeah. Meta is obviously known for a very different approach, than OpenAI, which is also, kind of openly working toward AGI. You you know, OpenAI is, strangely enough, very closed source, whereas Meta is very open source. Right. So it is gonna be interesting now that you have 2 of the biggest companies in our not just in artificial intelligence, but these are 2 of the largest technically, companies in the world, right, when you throw in the fact that OpenAI obviously has, you know, immense backing from Microsoft, which reportedly has about a 49% ownership stake. So these are the, You know, essentially, the the biggest tech titans in the world openly racing toward AGI. Right? So We're not gonna do a deep dive on AGI, but I think it's important to talk about what it is.

Jordan Wilson [00:05:26]:
Because if you are an everyday person and maybe your, extent of AI knowledge is, you know, using tools like Chat GPT or, you know, using something like MidJourney or maybe your company has a certain AI product that you So if you don't know much about AGI, it's essentially this. It's when artificial intelligence systems are technically smarter Then the people building them, and they can start to make decisions not generally, related to an artificial intelligence. Right? So that's when AGI kind of makes the jump when it starts to, you know, almost have these beyond human capabilities. And for years now, it's it's kind of been this, almost this taboo subject. Right? That until Sam Altman and OpenAI, you know, last year openly stated or I guess it's it's been more than a year, but, you know, OpenAI has has always Said that they're going after artificial general intelligence. They believe it's the next, big step forward for, not just the technology, but for our society. So so I think a lot of people, you know, have always looked at that a little sideways, so to speak. But now it's I think with with Meta and Mark Zuckerberg making this move, now it's going to dominate the conversations.

Jordan Wilson [00:06:44]:
And it's not gonna be so much, oh, okay. You know, this this AGI, push is more of a a side project from, you know, some tech elites, you know, like a Sam Altman, like an OpenAI, but, no, this is Now, you know, Meta is is a huge company. Right? Meta, technically, has way more influence than OpenAI does Right now, because Meta obviously has their suite of products across that, you know, reach people all over the globe, right, where OpenAI, for the most part, just has their Their chat GPT product and their, GPT technology that, you know, hundreds of other companies are using via the API. But Meta has a much more influential hand across the globe right now. Right? They essentially own social media, Right? With, you know, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp. I know WhatsApp isn't social media, but, you know, a social messaging platform. But Meta owns Social media, more or less. Right? I don't really count, you know, the, I'll say it, the demise of acts.

Jordan Wilson [00:07:46]:
You know, Twitter, I think, has really gone downhill over the last couple of years in terms of the quality out there. But this is going to be extremely interesting to watch now that you have this, you know, Mark Zuckerberg and Meta Going all in on AGI and saying, hey. We want to take, artificial intelligence to beyond human capabilities, you know, matching what, You know, Sam Altman and OpenAI, have have talked about it's gonna be ex an extremely interesting 2024 to you know, we've been talking about the AI arms race, but now we're We're talking about the AGI race. Right? Who is going to be the 1st company, to create something superhuman? Right? I think now for for better or worse, know, when we see new versions of large language models or generative AI systems, I think it's almost gotten to the point now, at least if you're an AI enthusiast, where you're almost not numb to it, But you're like, oh, okay. That's that's that's cool. You know, GPT 5, oh, that's great. You know, new version of Runway, that's that's nice. Midjourney, cool.

Jordan Wilson [00:08:46]:
Right? So I think now it's it's I'm not gonna say that these, tech titans are getting bored. Right? But They are obviously focusing on something much more monumental, and that will have societal impacts. Because I think right now, artificial intelligence Has great business impacts. But I think AGI will have great societal impacts because, you know, what happens then when we achieve Artificial general intelligence. And there's AGI systems that don't even need human input, and they can fix themselves and improve themselves and build better versions Of their next models, I think that's, you you know, an important question to ponder is what happens when that happens? And, you know, It's it's long been rumored, oh, you know, maybe it's 10 years, and then people are saying, oh, maybe it's 5 to 7, and, you know, now some people are saying it's 3 to 5 years away. No one knows, but I think it's a lot closer than people realize. Yeah. Nancy's saying even the experts have openly admitted they don't know how AGI works.

Jordan Wilson [00:09:49]:
Yeah. Exactly. No one does know how AGI works because it is when artificial intelligence is technically smarter than us, and it can self improve, and, it can, self heal, and it can, develop on its own. So, yeah, no one does well, who knows? Maybe it's it's up and working somewhere in a in a secret lab in Silicon Valley. But, yeah, for the most part, we don't know what it's gonna look like. Alright. Let's talk about our next big piece of AI news. This one's this one's a big one y'all, actually.

Microsoft releases Copilot Pro

Jordan Wilson [00:10:19]:
So, Microsoft releases Copilot Pro. Alright. So new announcement from Microsoft. And this kind of fills in the gap between the free version of Microsoft Copilot, which was formerly Bing Chats, And the enterprise version of Copilot, which is Microsoft 365 Copilot. Alright. So the naming was confusing at first, but I think now that there's kind of 3 tiers, it kinda makes sense. Right? So you can anyone can use out there. Right.

Jordan Wilson [00:10:48]:
So maybe the thing keeping you from using, GPT 4, which is the the newest and most powerful version of chat GPT, has been the cost. Right? But you've been able now for almost, gosh, a year to use what was formerly called BingChat, which is now just called Copilot. So that is you can go to, you know, Bing's website. You can use the Edge browser, and you can use the GPT 4 technology and, You know, use it for free by using, Copilot. So it's just called Copilot now. So that is the baseline free version for everyone. And now you have this new recently announced product from Microsoft called CoPilot Pro. This is not free.

Jordan Wilson [00:11:26]:
So not only does it require a $20, month subscription, but it also requires a subscription to Microsoft 365. So, let me go over the pros and the cons here. I actually think this is going to be huge, especially for people Like me. Right? I'm a lifelong Mac user. You know, ever since Copilot came out, I've I've kind of been drooling because I know that Apple is always, You know, so far, so far behind. So so this is like, full disclosure, it's like this is something that I'm probably gonna put My team on in the next couple of weeks. Right? The big thing is is, yeah, it does require a couple extra subscriptions because, You know, for every team member, you know, you're gonna have to have that now, you know, roughly $10 a month for Microsoft 3.65 subscription. So to use their Their suite of apps, you know, Microsoft Word and, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etcetera.

Jordan Wilson [00:12:26]:
But Once you do that, once you have those apps, right, and if you're a Mac user, yes, you can you can use this. So you can have all those apps, all those files, and then use now Copilot Pro to talk to your files, right, to interact with your files, throughout these different, apps, which I think is fantastic. So, if you're a Mac user or if you're using Copilot Pro, it's not Technically, not fully all in. It's not the level of Microsoft 365 copilot, you know, where now with that, you have the Teams integration, which I think is huge, which you don't have in the Copilot Pro. I think that's one of the main, differentiators between, you know, Copilot Pro And Microsoft 360 Copilot and Microsoft 360 Copilot is more geared toward enterprise. Right? Previously, it had a 300 minimum, which I believe that Microsoft did get rid of, you know, about a month or so ago. But now you have, With Microsoft, these 3 very distinct product offerings. And I'm excited now because now it fully makes sense after the, you know, the announcement of of Copilot Pro, you know, now less than a week ago, you have these 3 distinct tiers.

Jordan Wilson [00:13:39]:
So anyone out there, You can go use, Copilot, which is great. It obviously uses the OpenAI GPT 4 technology. So you have that large language model that Works in your browser, which is actually fantastic. There's things that I I I love about Copilot that Copilot can do that It's a little more difficult to do in Chat GPT. And if you listen to the show, you know I love Chat GPT. I use it, depends on the week, anywhere from, You know, 12 to 25 hours a week, so I'm a heavy chat g p t power user, but there's actually some things in Copilot, that are Better or easier, to do when versus using, versus using ChatGPT, even the ChatGPT plus version. Right? So, Also, another thing with the Copilot Pro version, again, $20 a month, and it does require that $10 a month Microsoft 3.65 subscription. But Another thing is you get, what they're calling a 1,000 boosts per day, to use DALL E.

Jordan Wilson [00:14:38]:
So, being able to produce DALL E images much faster than you can, you know, if you're using, you know, you can use it within Bing. You can use Microsoft Designer. So, this new boost capability is coming to Microsoft Designer, so you can get much, much faster version, a 1,000 different, a 1,000 different boost per day if you are on this CoPilot Pro subscription. So, you know, normally, it's it's not like it takes a long time. You know, it might take anywhere from 5 to, you know, 25 seconds to create something, using DALL E. So now you can do it much faster. So, Yeah. I'm I'm I'm curious.

Jordan Wilson [00:15:17]:
You know, like Brian here is saying that he jumped on, CoPilot Pro this weekend and started using Microsoft, 365. Yeah. That's gonna be the next thing for me. Right? And if I'm being honest, I've been Helplessly addicted to Google Docs for longer than I can remember, right, and Google Sheets specifically. That's gonna be if I'm being honest, that's gonna be Hardest thing for me personally is I have so many integrations, third party integrations with Google Sheets, extensions with Google Sheets. I use Google Sheets a lot, and I'm pretty decent at it. So that's gonna be the biggest jump for me is kind of bringing all my files over, to Microsoft 365, if that is the route we go, I'm thinking it is. You know, I'm still gonna, you know, check it out a little bit more, but, it seems to make the most sense.

Jordan Wilson [00:16:02]:
You know, Google has been So far so far behind Microsoft in terms of giving everyone access, you know, to its its products, you know, even for Our workspace. Right? So for everyday AI, the and also the the digital strategy, company that I own, Accelerate Agency, We still don't even have acts like full access to to Google Bard or, you know, Google Duet because they've Google has been so slow to fully roll out their AI products to smaller, companies. So hey. It's I I think hey. I've I've been very Very hard on on Google, you know, if you've been listening. So not only do I think that their, you know, large language model, Gemini is So far behind where even GPT 4 is right now, but they've just been slow rolling out all their AI features. And Microsoft here, As we saw from the Microsoft Copilot Pro announcement last week, they're pushing the envelope. So, I do think that a lot of, you know, small businesses, You know, entrepreneurs, startups that maybe have traditionally flocked toward, you you know, the the Google, you know, the Google suite of products, Google Workspace, I think they're gonna start to lose some of that market share, if I'm being honest.

Jordan Wilson [00:17:09]:
Alright. Great great question from Harvey here saying, are you going to Have both ChatGPT and Copilot Pro. Absolutely. Absolutely. Right? So another thing that's worth mentioning but kind of related, Doctor Harvey Castro, so thanks for the question. It is, there will be something. It's it's not released yet, but you will have the, The Copilot GPT builder, when you do have, the Copilot Pro. So that does give you access to that as well.

Jordan Wilson [00:17:40]:
So, yeah, I think a lot of people have been asking is do I still need or will I still need Chet GPT plus that $20 subscription if I in using Copilot Pro. And I'll say yes, probably, you know, especially if you're a heavy user. So, you know, I don't know too much yet about the Copilot GPT builder, but, you know, hey. You need chat GPT plus to access The GPT store. You know? You need it to build your own GPTs. And I do think that there's some better functionalities right now Within ChatGPT Plus, that $20 a month subscription that you probably can't really get right now with CoPilot Pro. So personally, I'll probably still be using both. Yes.

Jordan Wilson [00:18:21]:
A lot of people are out there are probably wondering, is that a lot of subscriptions? It is. But I like to tell people, think of the time that you save Because using, generative AI, Gen AI, is all about winning your time back. So, yeah, you can start to count up your subscriptions and say, oh, You know, 10 you know, $20 a month for CoPilot Pro, $10 a month for, you know, Microsoft 3 65 products on you know, then $20 a month for, Chat GBT and maybe $20 a month for Perplexity Pro. Right? Yeah. That can add up. You know, you might be paying 100 or 100 of dollars all of a sudden to use these different generative AI products, but I'll tell you this. If you use it right, You are going to win back easily 30, 40, 50% of your time. Very easily.

Jordan Wilson [00:19:12]:
Right. You have to also invest on how to properly use each of those, you know, tools. You have to use the right tool at the right time for the right purpose And not just use shiny tools for the sake of using tools, but, yeah, I I I do think even with this new announcement for, Copilot Pro, I think there's still a strong case, to keep both and to still keep Chat GPT Plus.

Runway multitool brush

Alright. Next announcement. Runway has released their new Multi brush tool. And, hey, shout out right here. We'll we'll we'll drop it in the newsletter, but, former guest on the show, I'm actually sharing, something that they shared on, social media kind of showing the power of this new runway multi tool brush.

Jordan Wilson [00:19:55]:
So, Rory Finn Rory Flynn, sorry, Former guest on the show share this, and, you know, if you're listening on the podcast, let me kind of explain to you what's in Rory's post here, you know, showcasing or, you know, Telling us all, hey. Here's how this multi brush tool works. So if you don't know anything about Runway, let me give you the 101. So Runway is actually a multifaceted, AI generative AI tool. You can do so many different things in video by using Runway. So I like to tell people this. Think of it as A version of, like, Photoshop for video. So if Photoshop was video based and it was, an app based on the web, would say that's kind of what Runway is.

Jordan Wilson [00:20:36]:
They have great, video capabilities. So not just AI powered video editing, but they have, you know, text to video, Right. Photo to video, and I think that is honestly what I think is is the best, use case For Runway, it is the image to video capability, so in their new gen 2 product offering. But I think, actually, The multi brush tool is what is going to push, this this technology, this photo to video technology, I think it's what's gonna push it mainstream. Right? If you listen to, our, you know, bold predictions for 2024, in generative AI, a couple weeks ago, we said that AI video is gonna go mainstream, and it is. And I think this is one of those tools that really helps. So, again, describing on the screen here. So Rory took photos from Midjourney, which is what I think a lot of the smart creators out there, you know, visual artists that are creating great with different generative AI tools, that's exactly what they're doing.

Jordan Wilson [00:21:34]:
Right? Ivan did a a free 3 hour course where I showed people How to use multiple generative AI tools? We went over ChatGPT. We went over BingChat. At the time, that's what it's called. We went over mid journey. We went over runway. We went over 11 Labs. We went over everything in a 3 hour course and including, the the the motion brush, and we showed you everything. Right.

Jordan Wilson [00:21:58]:
So if you want access to that course, you can always just just DM me. Shoot me a DM. Just say 3 hour course, or if you're in the comments, just say 3 hour course. If you're on the podcast, I leave my email and my LinkedIn in there. Just say 3 hour course. I'll send it to you. But, so what Rory is showing here And this is he's taking a mid journey image, and there's 2 different birds. Right? And you'll see, there's 2 different colors of brushes.

Jordan Wilson [00:22:20]:
So there's a very easy to use feature, and this feature has been out for a long while, the motion brush, but now you can have multiple Motion brushes. I didn't even see if there's a max, but it looks like you can honestly just keep stacking them. I'm sure there's a certain max, to to how many different things. But What this allows you to do is that you can pull out different things in the images. Right? So in this, case, you know, Rory has 2 different birds, And he can cause each of these birds or he can tell each of these birds to move in a different way by using this motion brush tool. Whereas before, you could only have Really one motion. So maybe there's, you know, multiple birds in a photo or maybe there's multiple subjects, multiple people, or there's a foreground and a background or There's clouds and there's waves. Right? So before, you could really only move one thing at a time.

Jordan Wilson [00:23:11]:
So, I don't actually thing when you have that, there was great use cases, for this technology in terms of actual, you know, Seeing this commercially, more or less. But now I think you're gonna see this a lot commercially because it costs now $20 a month. You know? $20 a month for MidJourney. $20 a month for, you know, advanced features and runway, etcetera. Right? But now for dollars a month, You can create something that is so high quality that so many people out there are not going to be able to tell anymore that it is AI generated, Right? Which is both, very cool and very frightening when you think of, the long term implications and how this is going to be used for, You know, misinformation, disinformation. Obviously, we, you know, we would hope that tools like this are only gonna be used for very cool purposes like Rory's showing here, like how to, You know, animate 2 birds and how to get them to move in different directions by using Runway, but that's not the case. Alright. So Let's keep going.

Samsung's AI phones

Jordan Wilson [00:24:14]:
And LinkedIn user, is that course available as recording? Yes. It is a go at your own pace reco course. Alright. Our next piece of AI news, big one, I'd say. So Samsung Announced last week what they're calling the AI phone. So they, officially, you know, kind of released their Galaxy S 24 lineup with so many different AI features. Alright. So let's go over top to bottom.

Jordan Wilson [00:24:45]:
So this is the the biggest and the the 1st mainstream phone that is being, tabbed or being called an AI phone. So what this means is you are going to have in this new Samsung Galaxy S24. You're gonna have edge AI. Right? On device AI. We had a whole episode about that, about a week or 2 ago, I'll make sure to throw it in, in the comments here after the show. So this is the 1st popular use case of Edge AI of on device AI. So let me tell you real quickly what that means and why it's important and why this, release from Samsung is actually pretty big news. So they are using, Qualcomm Snapdragon chips, which keep an eye on that company.

Jordan Wilson [00:25:27]:
We we we'll have to see if they're going to make an NVIDIA type rise, the same thing that NVIDIA has done for these GPUs that, you know, power, all of generative AI AI, now you are bringing Generative AI capabilities to devices. You know, this, Qualcomm Snapdragon chip is, you know, one of the first big names that's allowing you to do this. But, Essentially, what's happening is you're taking generative AI capabilities from the cloud. That's how we all use them right now. Even these all these different tools that we're talking about, ChatGPT, Copilot Pro, MidJourney, Runway, like, they all run generative AI in the cloud, and they all use, you know, NVIDIA GPUs for the most part. Right? Almost all these big companies use NVIDIA GPUs even though a lot of companies are starting to build their own, you know, kind of AI powered, you know, GPUs. So this new one inside Samsung let's let's actually look at the features here real quick because I think we have, If you're joining us live, 2 features just to illustrate what does it mean when you have generative AI living on your phone, when you have it, You know, this edge AI, on device AI, well, it's faster. It is technically more secure because you're not sharing any information with a cloud.

Jordan Wilson [00:26:41]:
Right? It is all happening. All of this AI features, all of these, this AI processing is happening locally on your phone. So it is faster. It is going to be able to collect more first person data. Right? That's the other thing is is the ultimate, I won't say hope, but one of the the big selling points is having a personal AI. Right? That's that's ultimately what, edge AI or, you know, on device AI is it's it's all about it is having you know, eventually, when you have it on your computers, When you have it on your cell phone, it is something, that knows everything. So, yes, there's a lot of privacy concerns, but, You know, it knows what you may be texting someone based on, you know, what email you just opened. You know, it it might know what you want to search for on the web Based on, you know, your your past web search history or based on a phone call you just had.

Jordan Wilson [00:27:36]:
Right? So this is an AI that lives on your phone, and, you know, depending on what you give it access to, but in theory, it can have access to everything on your phone. So some big new features in this new Samsung s, Samsung Galaxy S 20 4. Circle the search is one that's, got a lot of love at the Samsung event last, last week. So, Essentially, on any on any photo that you have, you can circle something, and it is going to instantly search, which I think is, you know, pretty pretty cool. So, in this example, you know, someone has a photo of someone traveling and there's a backpack. Right? So You can circle the backpack and automatically without switching apps, you know, the kind of Google Shopping, mode just pops up Right there, you don't have to, you know, take a screenshot, open the screenshot, annotate it, then take that screenshot, upload that screenshot to another nope. It's all it's all done right there live in real time. This is the, benefits of, you know, edge edge AI And on device AI computing is you can just circle it, and it instantly shows you, oh, here's that backpack.

Jordan Wilson [00:28:44]:
Right? That's one example. Another example that we have here on the right hand side of the screen is, you know, an AI call assistant. So A lot of privacy concerns there because I'm wondering if the party on the other line is notified, that the call is technically technically being Transcribe. You get it right. There's an AI assistant on the other on the other line. You know? So that that piece is gonna be interesting, but, you know, the ability to live translate on a call, Which is really cool. And you can go listen to the demo. We'll have it linked in the newsletter today.

Jordan Wilson [00:29:17]:
So you can go listen to the demo of, you know, kind of There's not a lot of latency either. So, being able to, break down barriers between language barriers, also just being able to record and give you notes, give you follow ups On phone calls. Right? That's something I would personally love. I am extremely forgetful. Right? Especially when it comes to things outside of work. I would actually love for my phone, to any any, you know, phone conversation I've had or text message for It just to tell me what to do. Hey, Jordan. This week, you told this person you do this, and it looks like in your text messages, you texted someone that said this was on its way.

Jordan Wilson [00:29:54]:
It's like, alright. Great. So, yeah, there's obviously a lot of privacy concerns for this, but, big news from Samsung with this s 24, the Samsung Galaxy S 24 released the 1st major product with edge computing, and, also, it's gonna put the it's gonna put the, full court press On Apple. That's the other thing. Right? Apple's been, as they always do. And I talk about on the show, they're never the 1st to the party, but they're always the coolest kid there. So this is gonna put pressure on Apple. Will they finally be able to release, you know, an AI powered phone in 2024? A lot of analysts are saying the next iPhone will have these features, but Apple is working.

Jordan Wilson [00:30:35]:
Right? Reports are saying that they're spending more than $1,000,000 each day on Developing different aspects of general intelligence within their company, whether that's, you know, creating whatever their large language model may be called, You know, Apple Ajax or, you know, Apple GPT, whatever you wanna call it, or whether they're spending all of that time and resources on, you know, the next iPhone with edge AI or the next MacBook with edge AI. But, regardless, Samsung, first to the party here. Big announcement from them, and Something to keep an eye on. It's news that matters to all of us. Yeah. What, Alina says here on device AI is a game changer. It means you can compute on device, Gen AI on device. Yeah.

Jordan Wilson [00:31:19]:
I had a whole whole episode on this, and, you I think there's other huge benefits as well because, you know, one of the downsides of generative AI right now that people don't really talk about is it's The compute needed. Number 1, there's not enough of these, you know, NVIDIA GPU chips. They're really the So far ahead of everyone else, there's not enough chips right now. Also, cloud AI cloud generative AI is extremely resource heavy, And that technically takes a toll on the environment as well. So I do think that that's a kind of a fringe benefit or an unseen benefit that people aren't really thinking about when it comes to edge AI or On device AI is you are technically, reducing, some of the load, you you know, some of this cloud compute load, which In the long run, it's technically, you know, good for the environment because we have to care about that. Right?

Jordan Wilson [00:32:25]:
So if you haven't used 11 Labs yet? Let me tell you what it is and why it matters. I'm gonna give some actual examples here too. So when you think of different sources or different channels of generative AI, you have your text to text or your text to Multimodal. Right? So that is your chat GPT. That is your, you know, Copilot Pro. That is your Google BARD, your anthropic cloud. Right? So For the most part, those are text to text or they are obviously becoming more sophisticated now with Chat GPT leading the way with multimodal input, multimodal output. But that's essentially, You know, those are text AI tools.

Jordan Wilson [00:33:04]:

So then you have a whole another category of generative AI software.

Jordan Wilson [00:33:38]:
You have your text to speech or speech to speech. But Text to speech, I'd say 11 Labs is one of the biggest, if if not, maybe the biggest, in terms of third party generative AI companies.

But you are gonna be hearing more about, you know, tools like 11 Labs and others as we talk more and more about misinformation and disinformation because we're gonna have a dedicated episode on this at some point here soon, but especially, you know, with, As an example, the EU AI Act, which just actually leaked, you know, a couple hours ago, the final final version of that will include that in the newsletter.

Jordan Wilson [00:34:42]:
But, You know, the EU is is really coming down harder than the United States on, on privacy across all aspects of generative AI, and I think the US is, very far behind, right, in terms of, I guess, AI governance. And it's it's tools like this while there's, You know, so many great positive use cases, that I think really push the business world and the creativity and even your own. You know, we always say, Everyday AI is to grow your company and to grow your career. So there's so many great, applications for that with tools like text to speech tools, such as 11 Labs, but there's also downsides. Right? Because that's when is you know, as these photos, images, and voices, these you know, this speech becomes more realistic. It becomes harder and harder to know what is real and what is not. Alright?
