How to access DALL-E 3 beta version

To utilize DALL-E 3 within ChatGPT, users must select DALL-E 3 from a dropdown menu under the GPT-4 option. Once chosen, users can input text descriptions, ranging from brief sentences to detailed paragraphs, to generate art through DALL-E 3, which promises enhanced image accuracy and attention to the intricacies of the prompt.

OpenAI has launched its advanced DALL-E 3 model, available directly from ChatGPT on web and mobile for specific users. This announcement follows the initial introduction of the model last month. While the exact rollout audience wasn't detailed in the release notes, OpenAI had previously mentioned that the model would be available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise customers in October.

Quick example below where we use DALL-E 3 to create a “photo sequence displaying the progression of Coca-Cola bottles from the very first design to the latest in 2022. The timeline should capture the brand's evolution in bottle design, material, and branding over the decades.”

Humanoid robots, are closer than we thought

Figure has surprised the robotics community by swiftly progressing from concept renders to unveiling its Figure 01 humanoid robot in under a year. The robot demonstrates dynamic walking, akin to human walking, signifying a significant advancement in robotics. This type of walking involves relying on momentum during certain phases of movement, making it more complex and human-like. The robot's slender design is notable, and it aligns with their initial vision of a slim human-like form, offering benefits such as improved human-robot interaction and cost-effectiveness.

Figure's journey involved meticulous hardware validation at each stage of development, tapping into the expertise of their robotics team and leveraging existing knowledge in locomotion. They adopted a walking algorithm with similarities to those developed during the DARPA Robotics Challenge and prioritized hardware and controller development in tandem. While Figure's rapid progress is impressive, the competition in the humanoid robot space is fierce, and it remains to be seen how they will fare in practical applications outside controlled environments.

NYC’s MyCityChatbot

NYC introduced a beta version of the MyCity Business Services chatbot, an AI-powered platform designed to assist residents with information about starting or managing their businesses. The chatbot, which consolidates data from over 2,000 web pages, provides accurate and trustworthy information, primarily from the NYC Department of Small Business Services. Additionally, the chatbot integrates with the city's recently launched Funds Finder platform, a resource for small businesses seeking financial assistance.

Mayor Adams emphasized that the tool would not replace jobs but rather augment the work, comparing the chatbot's introduction to the advent of calculators. Developed internally with assistance from external partners, the chatbot uses a Microsoft interface and is based on OpenAI. To ensure user privacy, the city has implemented security measures, ensuring that chatbot data is containerized and inaccessible to external entities.

AI generated image detection tool

OpenAI is developing a tool that can identify AI-generated images with 99% accuracy, as stated by its Chief Technology Officer, Mira Murati. The tool is currently being tested internally before its anticipated public release. While tools to detect AI-generated content already exist, many, including a previous one by OpenAI, have proven unreliable.

The increasing ability of AI to manipulate or fabricate content, including news reports, underscores the importance of reliable detection tools. Separately, during the Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live conference, OpenAI hinted at a successor to the GPT-4 model, possibly named GPT-5, as suggested by a trademark application. Addressing the challenges with chatbots "hallucinating" or generating inaccurate information, Murati acknowledged the progress made with GPT-4 but recognized the need for further improvement. CEO Sam Altman also discussed the potential of OpenAI producing its computer chips, though currently relying on market leaders like Nvidia Corp.
