  • FCC proposes all AI-generated content in political ads must be disclosed - Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel made the official proposal Wednesday that the FCC investigate and seek comment on such a rule. “Consumers have a right to know when AI tools are being used in the political ads they see, and I hope [the commissioners] swiftly act on this issue,” she said. This would apply to “cable operators, satellite TV and radio providers,” but not streamers or, say, YouTube, which the FCC lacks the statutory authority to regulate.

  • Spotify experiments with an AI DJ that speaks Spanish - Spotify’s addition of its AI DJ feature, which introduces personalized song selections to users, was the company’s first step into an AI future.

  • Autonomous shipping startup Orca AI tops up with $23M led by OCV Partners and MizMaa Ventures - Orca AI is a London-based startup that claims to have powered the world’s first autonomous commercial ship voyage in congested waters.

  • Study Looks to Distinguish Between Human and AI-Generated Content - A recent study conducted by Stony Brook University researchers looked at the reviews of 20 hotels in Chicago, trying to distinguish between the experiences shared by humans on TripAdvisor and those generated by OpenAI’s ChatGPT. “Our logic is based on studies of bots which show that they have very little variation in emotionality, personality, and demographics. Bots only show positive emotional sentiments, when compared to human authors.”

  • Anthropic takes a look into the ‘black box’ of AI models - With the ability to interpret what a model is thinking about in the middle of its process, researchers may have an opportunity to steer the AI away from bad outputs such as bias, misinformation, or directions to create a bioweapon, for example.
