😇 What NOT to worry

  • Adobe's faux pas with AI-generated "Ansel Adams" art has been addressed. No more unauthorized imitations.

  • Zoom's AI avatars attending meetings for you? Still a few years off, so you're safe for now.

😢 What TO worry

  • AI-generated content is booming, and so are intellectual property issues. Adobe's recent hiccup is just the start.


Adobe Scolded for Selling Fake "Ansel Adams" AI Art

Adobe landed in hot water for hosting AI-generated "Ansel Adams-style" images on its stock platform. The famous photographer's estate publicly called out Adobe, revealing they'd complained multiple times since last August about the unauthorized use of Adams' name.

While Adobe allows AI art on its platform, its rules prohibit mimicking specific artists. The company apologized and removed the offending images, but the estate argues Adobe should be more proactive in policing IP violations.

It's a reminder that even as AI-generated content proliferates, rights issues remain thorny - especially when big names like Ansel Adams are involved. For now, taking inspiration from the photo legend is fine, but leave his name out of it!

Zoom's Digital Twin Takeover: Send Your AI Avatar to Meetings

Zoom CEO Eric Yuan has a wild vision for the future of work: send your AI-powered digital twin to attend Zoom meetings for you while you relax on the beach.

Yuan believes we'll all have personalized AI versions of ourselves that can go to virtual meetings, read emails, and even make decisions on our behalf. The goal? Give humans back more free time to spend with family or on creative pursuits. 

While the tech to realize this dream is still years away, Zoom is investing heavily in AI to automate and eliminate most of the boring busywork and meetings that fill our days. But will workers really trust AI avatars to handle their jobs?

"Kitchen Sink" Material Could Slash AI Energy Use by 90%

Researchers have cooked up a superconductor they call the "kitchen sink of the atomic world." This affordable, multi-element material could be key to a new type of AI chip - the memristor.

By mimicking biological neural networks, memristor-based AI systems could be far more efficient than current power-hungry tech. One estimate suggests energy savings of up to 90% compared to GPUs.

The secret sauce is the memristor's tunable relaxation time, allowing it to process time-dependent info like our brains do. A pinch of this, a dash of that, and voila - an AI chip that's lean, green, and almost good enough to eat. Bon appétit!
