Microsoft is stepping up its AI game with early sneak peeks of its AI assistant for Windows 11, exclusive to Dev Channel insiders.

Here's what you need to know:

  • The AI assistant, named Copilot, needs Windows Build 23493 or a newer version, and Microsoft Edge version 115.0.1901.150 or above.

  • Copilot responds to user commands, performing tasks and tweaking settings in the OS.

  • It isn't a replacement for the search feature but takes the baton from Cortana as the embedded personal assistant in Windows.

Crucially, Microsoft's robust stride in AI tech is evident. Their surprising resurgence via Bing was only the beginning, and now they're weaving AI directly into the operating system. The tech giant is unquestionably leading the charge in the AI race.

Elon Musk and Twitter are taking a stand, implementing daily viewing limits due to unsolicited data scraping by AI companies.


  • AI startups, such as ChatGPT, have come under fire for unauthorized data mining from Twitter, causing Musk's ire.

  • Existing unverified accounts are now limited to 600 views per day, new ones to 300, while verified accounts can access up to 6,000 tweets.

- These limits are set to rise soon: 8,000 for verified users, 800 for unverified, and 400 for new unverified accounts.

Bottom line: Musk appears determined to halt AI companies from illicitly siphoning his valued data. Alternatively, maybe he's simply urging the Twitter community to unplug and reconnect with the physical world.

In an illuminating move, Meta is unveiling a bit of its AI wizardry behind content organization for Facebook and Instagram via 22 'system cards.'

The Details:

  • The 22 'system cards' provide insight into Meta's algorithmic content ranking, user personalization, and the 'signals' directing AI predictions.

  • The broadening of the "Why Am I Seeing This?" feature enables users to view past interactions that could have educated Meta's machine learning models.

The Takeaway: Meta is pulling back the curtain slightly, giving users a glimpse into the complex mechanics of AI-driven content delivery on its platforms.

In a fresh bid to revolutionize online shopping, Microsoft is employing AI in its Bing and Edge platforms to streamline your e-commerce voyage from browsing to buying.

Here's the lowdown:

  • The novel features include AI-crafted buying guides and summary reviews, designed to prevent shoppers from feeling swamped.

  • The Price Match tool keeps an eye on costs even after purchase, potentially leading to significant savings for customers.

In essence, Microsoft is on a mission to transform shopping anxiety into delight.

OpenAI, the brains behind ChatGPT, is under legal fire for supposed breach of privacy. The plaintiff's complaint argues that the company has unlawfully siphoned 300 billion words from the internet, potentially infringing personal data, without consent.

Key points:

  • The plaintiff warns this unauthorized data scraping could even trigger a "civilizational collapse."

  • The lawsuit aims for class-action status and reproaches OpenAI for choosing profits over privacy norms.

At this time, OpenAI remains silent on these allegations.
