What happened in June'23

Hi, I'm sharing collection of news from my areas of interests. There are lots of interesting things.

Artificial Intelligence

Meta (Facebook) introduced the voice-oriented artificial intelligence tool called "Voicebox", which it trained using its 50,000-hour audiobook archive. The solution, which detects the speech characteristic with only a 2-second sample, can read the desired written text exactly like the owner of the voice. It can also clean unwanted sounds in the background of existing recordings.

YouTube introduced dubbing support for existing videos with artificial intelligence support. Thanks to the solution called "Aloud", it will be possible to watch every video (within time) in every language.

Meta (Facebook) has announced a new artificial intelligence tool specialized in music production. The algorithm called "MusicGen", developed by the company's "Audiocraft" team, produces 12-second compositions with the features you describe (for now). If you want to try it, here you go.

Paul McCartney, the lead singer of the most famous band in music history, which broke up 50 years ago, announced that the "Last Beatles Song", which will be released next month, was created with the support of artificial intelligence.

McKinsey has published an extremely comprehensive report on the potential effects of artificial intelligence on the economy. (Artificial intelligence has the potential to contribute between 15 and 40 percent to the current economic value generation. This rate corresponds to the range of $2.6 to $4.4 trillion globally.)

Microsoft signed a comprehensive agreement to build artificial intelligence infrastructure with CoreWeave, which Nvidia also invested $200 million.

ChatGPT's mobile application, which has only been available in 12 countries, has been downloaded by more than 500 thousand people in 6 days.

One more line has been added to the list of artificial intelligence solutions using open source large language model. Working on Meta's LLaMA platform, the solution called "Falcon" was developed by the United Arab Emirates Institute of Technology Innovation.
