Smart AI glasses with a charging nose

Brilliant Labs has introduced a new product in the smart eyewear market, the $349 Frame glasses, which offer "AI superpowers" like AI translations, web searches, and visual analysis directly on the lens. These open-source glasses, available for preorder in three colors and an optional prescription lens at an additional cost, are designed to enhance real-world interactions through voice commands.

Frame, which starts shipping on April 15th, stands out by being fully open source and hackable, promising more freedom for users compared to previous smart glasses attempts.

It pairs with the Noa app, utilizing OpenAI for visual analysis, Whisper for translation, and Perplexity for web searches, with a paid tier option forthcoming.


Meta Quest vs Apple Vision Pro

In a recent video, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg compared Meta's Quest 3 headset against Apple's new Vision Pro, claiming it offers better value and performance. Highlighting the intensifying rivalry between Meta and Apple in the mixed-reality headset market, Zuckerberg emphasized the Quest 3's advantages in comfort, content library depth, field of view, hand tracking accuracy, and screen brightness over the Vision Pro, despite acknowledging the latter's higher screen resolution and eye tracking quality.

Zuckerberg's remarks reflect his surprise at the Quest 3's superiority in many aspects, especially considering its significantly lower price compared to the Vision Pro, which Apple launched as its latest major product.

Zuckerberg also hinted at the competitive edge Meta's open model for its headsets might have over Apple's offerings, underscoring the ongoing battle for dominance in the mixed-reality technology sphere.

OpenAI is testing a memory feature for ChatGPT

OpenAI is updating ChatGPT to remember information from past chats, making it more like talking to someone who knows you. This big change means ChatGPT will get better at understanding and helping you without you having to repeat yourself every time.

While this sounds great, it also brings up important questions about how safe and private our information will be, and what it means for the future of technology and AI. In short, ChatGPT's new memory could make our interactions with it more personalized and effective, but we also need to be careful about the information we share and how it's used.


Ivy League AI degree

The University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science has announced the launch of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Artificial Intelligence (AI), a pioneering undergraduate major among Ivy League institutions and one of the first of its kind in the U.S. This program comes in response to the burgeoning role of generative AI across various sectors, necessitating a new breed of AI engineers skilled in applying AI principles responsibly and ethically.

With a curriculum covering machine learning, data analytics, and advanced robotics, the program is set to equip the next generation of engineers with the skills to leverage AI as a force for good. The program begins in fall 2024, with applications for the 2024 cohort opening this fall, and for prospective students in fall 2024 for the 2025 intake.
