Chat GPT Has a Growing Appetite for Electricity.

Generative AI in creative industries (ring any bells?) is not just passing through—it's setting up shop and transforming the game.

But it's not all smooth sailing; the rise comes with its own set of challenges to navigate, particularly the looming threat of data breaches.

The New MacBook Air is AI's Finest!

Whether you agree or not, Apple has already teased their own initiation of AI works, which will be announced "later this year."

And that's your scoop for the week in the world of creative automation! Keep learning, keep innovating and keep your curiosity as sharp as it gets. The AI boom is touching every part of the creative industry and we’re here to see you through it.
