Your Weekly AI Breakdown

New Mind-Expanding Tools, News & Videos For The Week

It feels like the AI space overall has been cooling off a little bit. There haven't been any earth-shattering announcements like a GPT-5 or some unseen, radical, new text-to-video model. However, what's happening outside of the mainstream is a flurry of marginal innovations that are quietly pushing us closer and closer to the next big WOW moment. Those of us following AI on a daily basis continue to be amazed by the advancements we're seeing every single day.

One thing to keep in mind is how ahead of the curve we truly are. If you're someone who follows people like me, reads newsletters such as this one, and is making an effort to stay in the loop a little, you are ahead of 85% of the world. Yet, surprisingly, only 14% of Americans have even tried ChatGPT. Even less mainstream tools like MidJourney reach an even smaller percentage. Those of us in the know already recognize how these revolutionary tools can transform our day-to-day workflows.

Those of us staying in the loop, even as things appear to slow down a bit, are the ones who will have seen it all coming and will have positioned ourselves perfectly to capitalize on the next wave. Whether it's in our business, our personal productivity, our health, or something we can't even imagine yet, we're the ones that will be here and ready to help onboard our friends and family to what I believe will be life-changing tech for most of the world.

Now, let's dig into the cool stuff that's popped up this week!

🛠️ 5 Amazing Future Tools

1. MusicGen: Meta has solidified its position as the premier provider of open-source machine learning models. Recently, they rolled out their MusicGen, a rival to Google's MusicLM, and it's actually quite impressive. You simply type a prompt for the music you want to hear and it returns a pretty dang good rendition of your request.

2. Framer AI: The ability to build entire websites by simply typing text prompts is improving at an impressive rate. This week, we saw the release of Framer AI, a new tool that constructs a completely unique website for you based on a text prompt. The more detail you provide, the better the website it generates.

3. BeforeSunset AI: BeforeSunset is an AI-powered daily planner, specifically designed for busy professionals. It smartly organizes your day by juggling your schedule and to-do list. It even gives you analytics to give real insights for wrapping up the day without stress.

4. Klap: This is a simple (but handy) tool for content creators. Plug-in a URL to a YouTube video and it will analyze the video and find short clips for platforms like TikTok. It will cut out those clips and even add captions to make them more engaging.

5. Trickle: Trickle is an AI-powered workspace that takes your notes, tasks, and knowledge base and mashes them all together into a single platform. It’s great for both solo use and for teams to get everything you’re working on organized and the conversations all in one place.

🗞️ AI News & Articles

  1. Hugging Face and AMD partner on accelerating state-of-the-art models for CPU and GPU platforms - Hugging Face is the place to go when you have a machine learning model that you want to share and let people actually test it online. NVIDIA has ruled the GPU world for a while but AMD partnering with the premier place to experiment with ML models means that AMD is coming in strong and trying to get people to build and test using their chips. Their latest chip announcement promises to be faster and better for training LLMs than NVIDIA’s comparable chip. Will NVIDIA stay the king as AI heats up? Or is AMD going to start to eat their lunch a little bit. The race is on.

  2. OpenAI reportedly warned Microsoft about Bing’s bizarre AI responses - The relationship between OpenAI and Microsoft is a weird one. I’ve talked about this in past videos but they’re basically partners and competitors at the same time. Bing wants people to use their version of GPT-4 while OpenAI wants you to subscribe to ChatGPT Plus. But both are powered by GPT-4. It’s coming out now that OpenAI didn’t want Microsoft to release it’s GPT-4 model into Bing as quickly as it did, warning Microsoft that it would behave weirdly but Microsoft did it anyway. OpenAI seems to want to take a responsible, slow and steady pace to the AI race to keep things from getting out of hand. Microsoft seems to want to push full steam ahead and fix things as they break.

  3. Introducing Voicebox: The Most Versatile AI for Speech Generation - Meta is cranking out new machine learning models left and right these days. Voicebox was announced today and it promises to recreate realistic voices from only 2-seconds of input audio. So you can give it a 2-second clip of your voice and it will create a realistic version of it for text-to-speech, rivaling tools like ElevenLabs. It can also be used to edit out background noise and translate your audio to other languages while maintaining the characteristics of your voice.

💰️ A Money Idea To Try

AI-guided Meditation Scripts:

Use AI to generate unique meditation scripts. You could then record these scripts with soothing background music and sell them as meditation tracks online.

ChatGPT is actually really good at creating scripts for guided meditations. You can then record these scripts with your voice or even use something like ElevenLabs to voice out the scripts. Once you have the scripts recorded, add some calming background music that you generate with something like MusicGen, Mubert, or Soundraw, and you’ve got a calming meditation track. Bundle a handful of these together and you’ve got a nice little mindfulness business.
