Microsoft + OpenAI = Worst Kept AI Secret of 2023

So, you might have heard that Microsoft invested a billion bucks in OpenAI back in 2019. Yeah, it was kind of a big deal. Anyway, the word on the street is that Microsoft is planning to use some of that sweet OpenAI tech to give Bing a major boost. Now, don't get me wrong, Bing is a decent search engine and all, but let's be real, it's not exactly Google. To be honest even Google results are getting harder to figure out what is an ad versus search results. See below for results from Google, Bing, and ChatGPT for "best food blender".

Which option do you prefer? I'm guessing you prefer the ChatGPT result because it is text-based and provides the necessary information without any distracting images or ads.

And Bing Image Search? Don't even get me started. It's just not as good as it could be. So, it makes sense that Microsoft is hoping to change all that by incorporating some of that fancy OpenAI magic. No one knows for sure exactly how they're planning to do it, but people are saying it could involve making Bing more like ChatGPT and adding the ability for Bing Image Search to generate images using DALL-E. We'll just have to wait and see, but personally, I'm pretty excited to see how this all plays out. People are predicting that March 2023 as the release date for these OpenAI powered enhancements to Bing.

GPT-4 Is Coming Soon. Here’s What We Know About It

Have you heard about GPT-4? It's this new and improved AI model from OpenAI that can talk and write like a human. If you've used ChatGPT before, you were actually using the old version, GPT-3. But GPT-4 is going to be a major upgrade – it's like going from an iPhone 7 to an iPhone 13.

One of the things that GPT-4 is really good at is handling long-form text and keeping everything making sense. GPT-3 had a little trouble with this sometimes, and would produce text that didn't really make sense or was unrelated to what it was supposed to be talking about. But GPT-4 has been trained on even more data and has some fancy algorithms, so it should be able to understand and write text that is really clear and on point.

GPT-4 has also been trained on a ton of human-generated text, so it knows how people use language and how to write in a way that sounds natural. This will make it really helpful for things like writing articles or creating content.

All in all, GPT-4 is going to be a super powerful and versatile AI model for language processing. It can do all sorts of things and has the potential to change the game. Can't wait to see what it can do when it's released!

Cool Ai Apps + News

 72 + Ai: Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? This 72-year-old congressman is proving everyone wrong by going back to school and tackling a degree in AI. He's showing that age is just a number and that it's never too late to learn something new. His colleagues and constituents are all impressed by his dedication and he can often be found hitting the books in the library. He's already aced a few exams and is on his way to getting his degree. Talk about impressive! [Link]

WebChatGPT: You might not know this, but ChatGPT can't search the internet or access new information since it only knows what it was trained on up until 2021. That's where WebChatGPT comes in! It's a handy Chrome extension that adds web results to your prompts, giving ChatGPT some extra knowledge and making your conversation even better. Check out the demo video below and give it a try by installing it here!

ChatGTP vs WebChatGPT

YouTube Summary with ChatGPT: Another killer idea...using ChatGPT and a Chrome extension, it's possible to generate transcripts and summaries for YouTube videos. Many YouTube videos already have transcripts available for use by programmers and tools that assist users with disabilities or for advertising purposes. This extension allows users to access these transcripts and also provides the option to generate summaries using ChatGPT, displayed on the right side of the video player.  [Link]

GPTZero: GPTZero is an app that was developed by Edward Tian, a student at Princeton University, to help fight against the increasing issue of AI plagiarism. According to what Tian said on Twitter, GPTZero is able to quickly and accurately determine if an essay was written by ChatGPT or a human. I decided to test is out using ChatGPT results for "write a 5 paragraph essay about why christopher columbus did not discover america" [Link]


GPTZero analyzes the complexity and repetition of the content to determine if it's computer-generated or not. Complexity, or perplexity, is how well a computer model can guess the next word in a sentence. The lower the complexity, the better the model is at predicting. Repetition, or burstiness, is how often certain words or phrases are used in a short time. By looking at both of these factors, we can tell if the text was written by a computer or a person. GPTZero provides a lot of technical details about how it analyzes the data, and then gives you a button to see the final conclusion.

Oops, looks like we broke our new year's resolution to avoid using technical language in our newsletter. Sorry about that. We'll try to be more mindful of using clear and simple language in the future. 😭

🚨Beware students and adults who may be thinking of trying to trick their teachers and professors! The app correctly identified that my content was generated by AI. Be cautious when using this ChatGPT or similar apps to get help with homework. Use AI as a helper not a full generator of your work. 😳 

Konjer: Have you ever been like, "Ugh, why do I gotta read this whole book just to find the answer to one question?" Same, my dude. But fear not! Konjer has got your back with their AI-powered web app that lets you holla at books and get the 411 you need without all that pesky reading. And hey, robots are rad as hell, amirite?" [Link]
