In a world where every tweet, post, and podcast is buzzing with the latest OpenAI and Google IO revelations, we’ve decided to buck the trend. Let’s skip the tech gossip du jour and chat about something less ubiquitous—like a caffeinated bull in a china shop.

If we’re already wowed by what AI is bringing to the table now, just imagine the banquet of brain-boggling innovations still on the menu. Every week, AI cooks up a new batch of genius, human-centered ideas, and we're here with the serving spoon ready to dish them out to you!

  • Randy Travis’ AI-assisted vocals mean your playlist might just get a new (old) hit. AI isn't stealing the show, it’s reviving the legends.

😢 What TO worry

  • While AI helps you pack and design better, keep an eye on how much data it's digging through. Privacy, please!

Think Inside The Box: How Amazon’s AI Trims Down 60,000 Tons of Cardboard Waste

Ever found yourself pondering the cosmic irony of a tiny kitchen gadget arriving in a box big enough for a microwave? You’re not alone.

This intelligent system employs computer vision and natural language processing to analyze each product's dimensions and needs, ensuring that packaging is no larger than necessary. It might not be the most flashy use of AI, but it’s sure solving big problems.

Nike Is Sprinting Towards A New LLM

Who better to pioneer athletic design AI than Nike?

Armed with exclusive athlete performance data, Nike is prepping for the Paris 2024 Olympics with a groundbreaking project dubbed Athlete Imagined Revolution (AIR).

This initiative showcases personalized gear for 13 top athletes, crafted through a unique blend of generative AI and digital fabrication. By feeding athlete preferences into AI models, Nike generates a plethora of design concepts, which are then precision-crafted into final forms using 3D sketching and printing. It's not just about faster shoes; it's about smarter, athlete-customized innovation.
