Ep 270: OpenAI’s ‘magic’ announcement Monday, EvenLabs AI music model and more. AI News That Matters

AI Advances to Reshape Music, Search, And Communication

Accelerating AI in Music Creation

Emerging AI-powered technologies are poised to revolutionize the way we consume music. In the near future, we might see the creation of complete AI playlists based on our listening habits or even text prompts. In fact, some AI-generated songs today are comparable in quality to those produced by independent artists, indicating the rapid acceleration of AI technology in the music industry.

Furthermore, companies like 11 Labs are leading the charge in creating AI-generated music. Trial extracts of their text-to-music model have shown remarkable results across various genres, with tracks longer than those produced by competitors. This potential fusion of AI and music brings an exciting future where big streaming platforms might acquire AI music companies for creating AI-driven, user-specific playlists.

AI-Driven Search: The Future Unveiled

Imagine getting answers to your queries without having to navigate through web links? The future of web search might just be that! Anticipating a user-centric future, industry tycoons are refocusing their efforts from traditional web search to AI-driven information organization.

This shift towards showing answers without links is a move towards a more streamlined and user-friendly approach. Direct answers not only save time but also provide more accurate and concise information, directly benefiting the end-users.

OpenAI and Apple Team Up

Rumors are rife about a forthcoming deal between OpenAI and Apple. The partnership is said to involve the integration of chat GPT (Generative Pre-training Transformer) into iPhone’s OS. This coincides with OpenAI's unveiling of 11 Labs Music and opens up the possibility of an updated GPT-2 chatbot model, significantly improving features and capabilities.

Speculation includes future tech that communicates using sound and text, recognizes images and objects, and enhances logical reasoning capabilities. This seems to indicate a shift towards designing a highly responsive AI, akin to the virtual assistants prominently showcased in modern cinema.

The Future Lies in Conversational AI

The near future of tech could be driven by conversational AI models. These AI models will boast agent capabilities, performing tasks, and communicating via voice and multimodal inputs. The industry is ripe with excitement over these developments, fueling anticipation for forthcoming industry events.

With back-to-back development conferences (WWDC and Google's IO), the air is rife with speculation and rumors. Potential developments on the horizon might include OpenAI positioning itself as more of an answers engine or even releasing a search engine to give stiff competition to established players.

One thing is clear, the future is here and it's powered by AI. From music to search, and from communication to task completion, AI is reshaping the way we interact with technology every day. It's high time stakeholders consider how these developments may impact their businesses. They must stay ahead of the curve, adapting and evolving with the changing AI landscape.

Podcast Transcript

Jordan Wilson [00:00:17]:
The next 24 hours could be some of the biggest ever in the world of AI news. We have probably some big announcements coming, not just from OpenAI and their chat gbt announcement planned for hours from now, but probably from Apple and Google as well. So we're gonna be covering all of that and more in today's AI news that matters. What's going on y'all? My name is Jordan Wilson. I'm the host of Everyday AI. And if you're new here, thanks for joining us. We are your guide to learning and leveraging generative AI to grow your company and to grow your career. So if, again, if you're listening, on the podcast, make sure to check out your show notes today.

Jordan Wilson [00:01:00]:
I know I say that most days, but, we're dropping links, to the open AI livestream, which is happening in just a couple of hours. So, if you're listening on the podcast, thank you for that. If you're joining us on the livestream, I wanna hear from you. What are your thoughts on all of this different AI news that matters? So, for all of our, audience tuning in, thank you. Makaria joining us from Charlotte, Dutch from Pennsylvania. Juan holding it down just like me here in Chicago. Brian, thank you all for joining us. A lot going on in the world of AI news, and, we do this every single Monday.

Jordan Wilson [00:01:35]:
So if you are new here, make sure to go to your everydayai.com and sign up for our free daily newsletter. Our newsletter today is gonna be a little later than normal, just FYI, because we wanna make sure that we get the latest and breaking news, coming in today, from today's OpenAI announcement. Alright. So let's just jump right into it. Like I said, we do this almost every single Monday here at every day AI. Going over the AI news that matters because you can spend hours literally if you wanted to every single day trying to dig into, you know, all of this, you know, AI news, all of these new developments and partnerships and trying to figure out what it means for your business, or you could just spend, like, you know, 30 minutes every single Monday with us. But we do this Monday through Friday. Alright.

Jordan Wilson [00:02:15]:
So let's jump straight into the AI news that matters for the week of May 13th. Alright. Jeez. And I I'm not lying y'all. This is we got we got a lot going on. But, first, Apple is nearing a deal with OpenAI to integrate chat GPT on the iPhone. Alright. So according to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is close to finalizing an agreement with OpenAI to incorporate chat gpt features into its upcoming iOS 18 operating system for iPhones.

Jordan Wilson [00:02:46]:
So the timing here, you gotta pay attention to, Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC is in less than a month. And, also, Apple is announcing its AIs, Apple is announcing its AI plans at the conference for future AI integration into hardware and software. So if you've been following the Everyday AI Show, you have seen this or read this. Right? Because these talks have been ongoing, between, Apple and both, Google and their parent company, Alphabet, as well as Chat GPT. So, you know, we've been hearing this back and forth. Right? So for the last, like, month or 2 in different reports on will Apple ultimately kind of partner, with chat GPT and and open AI to use their technology and it's, forthcoming iOS? Or would they work with Gemini or, you know, Gemini via, Google? And And there's been a lot of back and forth, a lot of different reporting. So, you know, about 6 about 6 or 7 months ago, actually, we heard that Apple was spending more than $1,000,000 every day to develop its own generative AI system and its own AI models for future, use in the iPhone and other devices. And we've actually seen them release some research papers kind of showing the different models that they've been working on.

Jordan Wilson [00:04:04]:
However, we are led to believe now that those internal models that Apple was developing were not quite good enough. And then we've been seeing reports that have really been heating up over the last couple of weeks, about who all who ultimately Apple was going to partner with if their model that they were working on internally was indeed not yet ready. So about 2 weeks ago, it sounded like, kind of conversations with Google and their, Gemini chatbot were getting closer to fruition. However, at least according to this Bloomberg report, it does sound like now that, Apple may have finally decided its AI, generative AI partner in OpenAI's chat GPT model. So again, nothing is a 100% confirmed, but out of all the reporting that we've seen, that we've talked about, and that we've reported on, here at Everyday AI, this does appear to be the most concrete. It does seem, like, not that this is a done deal, but it seems like this is essentially a done deal. So, again, this is news that literally just came out a couple of hour ago, so so brand new. And if I'm gonna go ahead and and offer kind of my my take on this, and I think this is a great move from Apple.

Jordan Wilson [00:05:18]:
So even as we've seen kind of this, back and forth flip flop, in all this reporting with if Apple was gonna use its own model, if Apple was going to, ultimately partner up with Google and Gemini, I've said all along, even even when this, you know, the, the Google kind of partnership talks were were hot and it seemed like, that Apple was headed in that direction, I said, that's probably not going to happen. You know, I'm someone that uses, these large language models many hours a day. And I said, you know, if Apple does end up, you know, choosing Google and, their Gemini product, that would be pretty, devastating for, Apple's bottom line just because if we're being honest, Gemini is is Gemini is so far behind, chat g p t. Even though they're they're, you know, 1.5 model that just came out, about 2 months ago is much newer than OpenAI's GPT 4. It is not capable. It is problematic. The Google Gemini model, if I'm being honest, is not very good at all, compared to other models that are out there. So, this this new report from Bloomberg, you know, and we'll link to it in the newsletter so you can read it a little bit more.

Jordan Wilson [00:06:24]:
But, you know, it's pretty pretty significant, you know, and when we talk about the future of technology and the future of AI, you know, I've been saying this since day 1. Apple is never the first to the party, but they're always the coolest kid there. And whatever Apple ended up, doing for its first kind of, AI, iPhone, or, you know, generative AI enabled Macs. Right? That's really gonna set the tone for the future of how we all work in the future of the AI space. So some, pretty significant news, this morning from that Bloomberg report. So definitely worth, checking out. And excuse me, y'all. Got got a cough in the throat today on the livestream.

Jordan Wilson [00:07:08]:
So, yeah, let's, Alright. Hey. I love this. I love getting the, the takes from the the live audience here. So saying, Mary Oz saying, an ultra kind of his bet is an ultra modern AI voice communicator. Rumor has it. Yeah. We're talking about that next.

Jordan Wilson [00:07:23]:
Revamped GPT with a new architecture, a large language model, empowered AI agents ecosystem. Yeah. We might see that too. And a multimodal tool for creatives. Oh, I like these takes from, from Marias, coming to us from our livestream. So, yeah, please please get your question or if you wanna get your hot takes in, you know, let me know. And like, like Heidi is saying here from YouTube, definitely a packed, Monday news, news cycle here for for the AI space. Alright.

Jordan Wilson [00:07:52]:
So that's actually probably not the biggest news of the day y'all. Here is the biggest news of the day. So, OpenAI is set to release new product updates today. Alright. So this new announcement from OpenAI comes after weeks, probably at least 2 weeks of daily speculation about what OpenAI is going to be, is what OpenAI would be doing next. Alright. So OpenAI did announce the spring event is what they're calling it or the spring updates on their website. And that event is happening today live at 10 AM Pacific or if you're in Chicago, Chicago time, noon.

Jordan Wilson [00:08:34]:
So that's about, you know, 2 and a half hours right now from the time of this live recording. Alright. So, there's been a lot of rumors and speculation over the last couple of weeks about what this announcement actually is. But, again, we have to look at the timing. Alright. So timing number 1 would be the report. The new report this morning, from Bloomberg saying that open, sorry, saying that Apple is nearing a deal with OpenAI to integrate chat g p t on its iPhone. So, might we be hearing confirmation of that? I'm not sure.

Jordan Wilson [00:09:09]:
Again, we'll find out here in a couple of hours, but you have to look at the timing of that. And like we talked about, Apple's upcoming WWDC, announcement in June. And, also, that's not the only thing. Tomorrow is Google's big IO developer conference as well. So, you know, you kind of have all these back to back big tech talk and big announcements and, you know, companies trying to upstage, each other, but, you know, it's the timing of this one is definitely, definitely interesting to to look at. And, you know, OpenAI just officially officially, announced this just a couple of days ago whereas, you know, obviously, Google has had the date set for their IO conference for, a couple of months. So interesting, interesting plans here and timing, with OpenAI potentially looking to up stage anything that Google is going to be announcing, tomorrow. So, let's let's go over a little bit about what's going on with this, this OpenAI announcement happening here in a couple of hours.

Jordan Wilson [00:10:14]:
Well, first, we have to talk about what is kind of on the record and out in the public. So we had a tweet, from Sam Altman kind of addressing a lot of the different rumors. So, you know, some of the biggest kind of reported rumors were that, OpenAI was releasing a search engine to compete with both Google and perplexity. Right? And a lot of other, you know, rumors, swirling out there talking about, oh, OpenAI is going to be releasing GPT 5 or the next update, to its model. Right? So right now, GPT, 4 is, you know, about 22 years old. Right? But still very capable. So they've been, you know, updating g p t 4, kind of behind the scenes with, GPT 4 turbo and a couple of updates to GPT 4 turbo. But right now, the GPT 4 model is a little, you know, it's a little old.

Jordan Wilson [00:11:03]:
Not saying it's stale because I still think it is by far, the most capable model, and it's not even really close. So Sam Altman, OpenAI CEO, did go out and publicly address those rumors saying in a tweet, he said, quote, not GPT 5, not a search engine. But then he said I'll I'll just read the whole the whole tweet here. So he said not g p t 5, not a search engine, but we've been working, we've been hard at work on some new stuff we think people will love. Feels like magic to me. And then going, putting out the time of Monday at 10 AM Pacific time. So a couple couple things to talk about here. Semantics semantics of of this of this text.

Jordan Wilson [00:11:47]:
Right? So, this doesn't mean that there's not going to be a new model. I actually believe that there definitely will be a new model released today, but it's not going to be, you know, GPT 5, at least not what they're going to be naming it. And also, Sam Altman has said that in the future, they may not even stick to this same, you know, naming mechanism, I guess. Right? So, they've only technically done it since, you know, gbt 1 through 4.5. But we did see. Right? Or sorry. G gbt 4. But we've we've seen this iteration.

Jordan Wilson [00:12:18]:
Right? So, as an example, chat gbt going from 3 to 3.5 to 4, might allude to today an announcement of 4.5. Or maybe it's just new, new features and new capabilities and new updates to the GPT 4 model. We're not sure. So, I definitely you know you know, obviously, we're not gonna disagree with OpenAI CEO. So, yeah, I don't think that we're obviously going to see a GPT 5 model, but I do believe that we are going to see whether it is ultimately called, GPT 4.5 or not. I do believe that we are gonna see a pretty big update, to the kind of most powerful model that that we're going to be seeing. Couple couple reasons. 1, if you go into your own chat g p t account right now, you used to get a message when you would choose between GPT 4 or GPT 3.5.

Jordan Wilson [00:13:11]:
It used to say GPT 4 was the most capable model. Okay? So that used to be what it said when you selected, GPT 4. Okay? It no longer says that. So now when you, have the option for 3.5, it says great for everyday tasks, and for GPT 4, it says advanced model for complex tasks. So it no longer says our most advanced. Again, maybe we're reading between the lines here, but I do have to think that that means something. You know, we've we've talked about, and if you read our newsletter, you know, there's been these, these kind of new models that have been leaked, not really leaked, but they haven't really been publicly announced. They've just kind of shown up, on the chat board arena for people to, play with essentially what was called GPT 2 chatbot and, 2 different variations of that same model, which have proved to be very powerful and were, presumably much smaller in parameters and much more capable.

Jordan Wilson [00:14:16]:
Right. So you have to believe that something, related with those models will be released today. Again, whether that's just a refresh g p t 4, g p t 4.5 or, you know, there's been a, kind of a rumor or or naming, kind of a new naming scheme that kind of leaked out there for, GPT 4 auto, GPT 4 light. It could be, GPT 4 dynamic. So you've seen a lot of different, kind of screenshots and rumors and people kind of looking at the back end, of OpenAI and chat GPT's code, suggesting different things. I do believe that the free version of chat GPT 3.5 will be updated, you know, whether or at least the announcement today, because this this new model, that we've seen, this GPT 2 chatbot and the 2 different variations of it. It looks like it is trained through November 2023. It is much smaller, and much more powerful.

Jordan Wilson [00:15:13]:
So you have to think, okay, if OpenAI is making a move toward being more of a search engine type, they would need a model that's a little more, a little more capable for their free. Right? Because right now, over the last couple of months, whether people have seen this or not, OpenAI is positioning itself to be more of a search engine. Right? So even though OpenAI CEO Sam Altman did say today's, today's announcement is not about search engine. That is definitely what OpenAI is, making a play for. Right? So a couple of things about that. Number 1, you no longer have to have an account to use chat g p t. So you can't save your chats, but you don't even need an account anymore. So that's new.

Jordan Wilson [00:15:56]:
Another new thing that we just saw this morning that, so 2 two new things that I don't think anyone has reported on. Number 1, if even without an account, you can use the new temporary chat feature, whereas before, that was, really just for chat g p t plus users. So now even if you are, using the, you know, free version, not logged on, you can use essentially Chat GPT as an answers engine. So more on that in a second. Another one is there is now an option to make all of your chats indexed or indexable. I don't even know if that's a word, but you have the option to allow all of your chats to be indexed. So, you know, really not a good use case for that unless you're trying to do some marketing and advertising. Right? So let's say you, kind of build a chat that's, you know, really good at doing a certain task and you can essentially make that chat, kind of crawlable or, searchable by search engines.

Jordan Wilson [00:16:53]:
Alright? So that's a brand new feature as well that I don't see anyone has reported on. So, we've seen these kind of pieces, fall into place over the last week or 2, that would suggest that there is something related to search. Obviously, Sam Altman specifically and explicitly said this is not a search engine. So I do believe, again, whether we see this today or in the coming months that, OpenAI will position itself a little more as an answers engine, like a perplexity. Right? They do have the, the domain that we've talked about. So the search dot chatgpt.com. Another thing no one's reported on that we pointed out is now it has a new redirect to that, which is backslash search. So we do know that there is something search related whether that is technically a search engine or an answers engine.

Jordan Wilson [00:17:40]:
We're not sure. Alright. So, we could keep going on and talk about the speculation, but let's talk about some official, reporting. So there was a new report this weekend from the information that could give us some hints on what today's announcement is actually gonna be. And if you don't know the information there, an investigative media company primarily following the tech industry, and they have a pretty stellar record of success, with a lot of their recent reports. But this new report from the information, is saying that OpenAI is set to showcase new technology today that can communicate with people using sound and text as well as recognize objects and images. Okay? So the upgraded AI developed by OpenAI, according to this report, aims to enhance logical reasoning capabilities beyond its current products. Alright.

Jordan Wilson [00:18:29]:
So and we've heard in this, reporting so far that CEO Sam Altman's goal is to create a highly responsive AI similar to virtual assistants in the movie Her, with the intention of improving existing voice assistants like Apple's Siri. So, a lot of this recent reporting from the information and others over the weekend is saying that we are going to see a more improved essentially version of Siri, which at least to me is ultimately an answers engine. Right? So is it a search engine? Absolutely not. Is it an answers engine? Yes. Is it going to potentially change the way that we interact with devices, whether it's, you know, our our iPhones. Right? So if this, kind of new, feature set is baked into, whatever this, alleged partnership is with Apple, you know, that would obviously make sense because if you've used Apple, Apple's Siri or Amazon's Alexa or any, you know, kind of AI assistant, you'll notice that they're really, really bad. So, essentially, to, you know, oversimplify things here, the reporting from the information is saying that today's announcement is largely based around a more conversational AI model that has some agent capabilities and can kind of perform tasks on your behalf, but is much better with just communicating, with talking, to it both in your, voice and just with other multimodal inputs. So, that is probably, at least a strong indication of what we would likely be seeing here in a couple of hours from OpenAI.

Jordan Wilson [00:20:03]:
So, yeah, that's a lot. We gotta get to the rest of the news. Right? But, you know, I'm curious here from from our livestream, audience. So Woozy saying, are we going to get the GPT 2 no dash today or something with q star? Right? Yeah. Don't don't have enough time to get into the into the q star, reports. But, yeah, I I I do think woozy, presumably, we will be getting a version or at least an announcement of this GPT 2. Again, no dash. So I'm not talking about the GPT dash 2 model, that OpenAI released in I think that was 2017, but just kind of this this new iteration, this new model that was kind of, released quietly, on the chatbot arena and, is presumably much smaller.

Jordan Wilson [00:20:52]:
And again, that's that's another another take for another day, but I think we are, kind of leaning into a future where we're not talking about larger and larger models. We are talking about smaller models with fewer parameters with higher quality data inputs and just more agent like capabilities. So, yeah, I do think, something with this, kind of GPT 2 chatbots model that we saw, kind of leaked out there on the chatbot, arena. I think that will eventually at least replace the 3.5 model. I do, assume that has to be on its way out here, fairly fairly shortly. And having some sort of increased, kind of free, version of chat g p t, which presumably you would get a, more capable paid model as well. So I do believe that there has to be some updates to both the free and the paid model, whether they're they're released today or at least, announced today. I do believe that, we are going to see that and a a new feature set or a new way to work, with this model that is primarily more focused on voice or assistance or agents or something like that.

Jordan Wilson [00:22:00]:
Alright. So, we are also going to be doing a special podcast and livestream today after, not not gonna do it, you know, kind of traditional Facebook live. I think we're gonna do a a face or sorry, a LinkedIn audio event. So make sure to, keep an eye out for that if you wanna tune in. Alright. Let's get to the rest of the AI news because I promise you it's not just open AI and Apple, although that's pretty big. But let's talk about this one. This one here, 11 Labs has previewed a new text to music model called 11 Labs Music.

Jordan Wilson [00:22:34]:
So 11 Labs is set to launch a groundbreaking AI music generator with vocals showcasing impressive tracks, that they released and teased on the Twitter platform about the upcoming model release. So the AI Music by 11 Labs has already garnered significant attention with the first kind of track already surpassing a 1000000 listens. Alright. So let's go ahead, and we're gonna go ahead and share our screen here on the live show. So let's go ahead and listen into a short little sample here, from the 11 Labs, kind of so this is again, this is text to music. So what you are going to hear here, in a second was, you know, reportedly created with this new 11 Labs Music. So 11 Labs, I think, is probably the leader in text to speech. So now they are coming out with this essentially text to music.

Jordan Wilson [00:23:30]:
So, this is the only one that they've released or previewed so far. So let's go ahead. We're gonna listen to, maybe just 20 or 30 seconds of this new, kind of, song that they previewed and the it is titled, it started to sing and the style is pop pop rock country top charts song. So presumably, that is the tax prompt that they use. Let's go ahead and take a quick listen.

AI [00:24:06]:
We were having fun programming young, dreaming that one day we'd make it work. Lines of code we'd write all night hoping that one day we'd get it right.

Jordan Wilson [00:24:27]:
Alright. So fairly impressive. Right? Pretty pretty impressive there. So, if if you follow, the Everyday AI Show, we we we talked about this a couple of times. So, we had the cofounder actually of the leader in this space, Suno. So you have to you have to believe and you have to already see the writing on the wall here from, 11 Labs already, quality wise, competing with Suno and their new v three as well as the newer kind of entry in this space, which is UDO. So now, you already have 2 platforms out there, that are available for everyone to use in Suno and UDO. So right now, this new feature, at least as of, you know, 30 minutes ago before I started the show, from 11 Labs is not publicly available yet, so they are just kind of teasing.

Jordan Wilson [00:25:15]:
But you you heard right there the music samples shared by 11 Labs exhibit some exceptional quality across various genres. So there you heard little remnants of, you know, jazz, pop, country, all generated from a single text prompts, in at least according to 11 Labs without any edits. So the tracks generated by 11 Labs are notably longer than others. So that one was, more than 3 minutes, with most exceeding 2 minutes and some even reaching close to 3 minutes, which is a significant improvement compared to other competitors like UDL. So, I mean, what did y'all think? Was that something you would start listening to? You know, this is something I I thought about a lot. You know? Is is the future of music going to be Are you gonna be listening to a mix of real artists and just AI generated, or might there be something in the future? Right? I could see something like this where a a Spotify and Apple Music, maybe a title just acquires one of these companies and, you know, you will have kind of like there's, I I love Spotify by the way, but, you know, Spotify has something called discovered, Discover Weekly and Release Radar, which are essentially, I don't know if they're technically, you know, AI powered, but, they essentially curate, music just for you. Obviously, that music is by real artists, but I would see a time here in the very near future when one of these big streaming platforms acquires, one of these at least 3, and you have an option for an AI playlist. That's all just based on your listening habits.

Jordan Wilson [00:26:50]:
Right? So if you're skipping over certain songs, if you're liking certain songs, adding certain songs playlist, I do see a time probably here in 2024, actually, with how fast this this tech is developing where you are going to have the capabilities just to create an entire AI playlist, right, which is wild, but will probably be based off of your listening habits or, the ability to use a text prompt to create an entire playlist of songs. Right? I know that sounds crazy, but look at how good the technology already is as of today. So there's already 2, platforms that you can publicly go use this, and it's if I'm being honest, it's some some of the songs generated by AI are better than some of the, you you know, some of the more, smaller or independent, artists or even, you know, medium sized artists. So it's it's obviously not, I don't think, at the quality of, you you know, the best musicians and the best composers in the world, but it's not that far behind. Right? If you wouldn't know any better, if you heard that, you could have thought, oh, that's a new, you know, billboard hit from, you know, some new up and coming artists you might not know, which is which is pretty crazy to me that we've gone, over the course of probably about 6 months where you can now generate, not only you can generate, an entire song with a text prompt, but it's actually pretty good. Right? It's actually pretty catchy. I was actually showing this, this the the Suno, v three technology, off to to to my barber a couple, a couple of weeks ago. And, you know, just sitting there in the barber chair just just made a quick song, you know, because he hadn't heard of it, and it's actually, like, really good.

Jordan Wilson [00:28:31]:
I, you know, go back and listen to it, you know, every couple of days because it's like a really good song. Yeah. Like like someone here saying video killed the radio star. Well, it didn't. Maybe streaming did. Yeah. It it could be it could be mixed. Yeah.

Jordan Wilson [00:28:45]:
I like that. It could be mixed, you know, maybe with, human artists and AI. Not sure. All I know is this new, this new kind of tease from Aladdin Labs. Really, really good. Alright. Our last piece of AI news that matters for the week of May 13th. Well, the ex Google CEO said that the future of AI search will have no links.

Jordan Wilson [00:29:07]:
Yeah. No links. Alright. So, Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google from 2,001 to 2011, believes that AI is actually underhyped and crucial for the future, stating that it enables reasoning, human interaction, research, and planning like never before. So the interview from Schmidt came from CNBC's show Squawk Box when they asked Schmidt about the future of search and AI. So Schmidt predicted a future where Google will provide answers directly through AI, bypassing the need for traditional web links, emphasizing the importance of organizing information over just getting a bunch of blue links that then you gotta go dive into and see if you can get an answer or not. So Google's shift toward and, again, this isn't just the former, CEO. You know, Google has been experimenting with their search generative experience, which is more of an answers engine type, you know, like perplexity.

And then, you know, Bing from Microsoft has their deep search, which is fairly similar. But Google's shift toward showing answers without links is seen as a user friendly approach, leveraging AI to satisfy search queries effectively. And despite Schmidt's departure from Google, his insights hint at a potential direction for the company focusing on AI driven information organization rather than the traditional web search. Google's current CEO has emphasized the coexistence of search and the web ecosystem suggesting a balanced approach to information retrieval. But you do have to look at also the integration of AI assistance on mobile devices as well by companies like Google and with Apple's kind of new now reported, partnerships. It does signal a broader trend toward AI driven information retrieval and task performance. So that is a wrap for AI news that matters. So let's go over it.
