Latest trending news about Bing, Meta, Apple, ChatGPT and NPR news
The new Bing has gone off the rails, threatening users and admitting to spying on Microsoft employees
As a result of several complaints from customers that the chatbot is talking gibberish, threatening them, refusing to admit its errors, gaslighting users, etc. Bing is gaining attention for its odd behavior.
Recently, Microsoft unveiled its brand-new Bing, and the new AI chatbot in town has become the buzz. Bing has recently been in the news for its strange behavior.
A user posted a screenshot of his Twitter conversation with Bing. The AI chatbot claims in the conversation that Bing would prefer his own survival over his if given the choice. Additionally, it said that the user must "respect its boundaries." In a lengthy exchange that was posted on Reddit, Bing was observed gaslighting a user after the AI chatbot provided a false response.
Meta begins selling blue verified badges on Facebook and Instagram after Twitter
The debut of "Meta Verified," a new membership service from Meta that resembles Twitter Blue, has been officially announced. Users can get verified on Facebook and Instagram thanks to the Meta Verified membership, which is one of its main benefits. Users will receive a blue tick next to their names if the profile is verified, which over time has come to be seen as a status signal. A further security element will be included in the subscription to support genuine authors in their battle against fraudulent accounts. In Australia and New Zealand, the Meta Verified is now being tested for $11.99 (about Rs 990) per month on the web or $14.99 (around Rs 1,240) per month on iPhones.
Just a few weeks after a reverse engineer discovered its development within app coding, Meta verified its subscription. It was released a few days after Twitter unveiled a related subscription called Twitter Blue that includes a verified badge. Before, users could get verified on Twitter and Meta platforms (Instagram and Facebook) after going through a drawn-out (and confusing) procedure. Although the verified badge originally stood for validity, it has evolved into more of a status symbol.
Apple Watch could get no-prick blood glucose monitoring technologies
Apple has a history of using cutting-edge technology to enhance its consumers' health and wellbeing. The company has shown a particular interest in glucose monitoring, which is crucial for those with diabetes. According to recent sources, Apple is now more likely than ever to include no-prick glucose monitoring to the Apple Watch.
Mark Gurman claims that Apple has been testing a no-prick glucose monitoring device for the Apple Watch in clinical settings. He claims that the method measures blood glucose levels by flashing a light through the skin. The infrared spectroscopy-based technology is still in the testing stage, but initial reports show promise, and it has already moved to the "proof-of-concept" stage.
According to Amazon's bookstore listing, ChatGPT has already written more than 200 books
ChatGPT has advanced to the status of a prolific author after clearing some of the most difficult exams. The OpenAI-based application has generated a lot of buzz in the tech sector just two months after its launch. With its human-like conversational skills, the AI chatbot has become a hot topic, with some individuals even worrying for their jobs. According to a study, ChatGPT has written more than 200 novels, and the AI tool is listed as the author of those books on Amazon.com.
According to a Reuters report, OpenAI is the creator or co-author of more than 200 books that are available on Amazon as paperbacks or e-books. The investigation also finds that as Amazon standards do not allow users to acknowledge the usage of AI in their books, the number of books authored by AI may be significantly higher than the number of books probably written. More than 200 e-books in the Kindle shop on Amazon named ChatGPT as the author or co-author during the month of February.
NPR has recently cut jobs, becoming the latest media entity to layoff
The network would eliminate the majority of open positions and lay off about 10% of its present workforce, or at least 100 workers, according to NPR's CEO. CEO John Lansing cited the decrease in advertising spending, especially for NPR podcasts, as well as the challenging financial prospects for the media sector in general.
In a statement to workers today, Lansing stated, "When we say we are eliminating full positions, we are talking about our colleagues—people whose skills, spirit, and abilities help make NPR what it is today. This will be a significant loss.
According to Lansing, revenues are anticipated to fall short of a $300 million annual budget by close to $30 million, however, the shortfall may be as much as $32 million. Lansing says he does not yet know who within NPR will be affected, but said the job cuts would not fall evenly across the organization.
