Boston Dynamics has integrated OpenAI GPT-4 into its Spot robot. This integration includes the addition of a Bluetooth speaker, microphone, and a camera-equipped arm that emulates a talking mouth, providing the robot dog with a form of body language. GPT-4, combined with Visual Question Answering (VQA) datasets and OpenAI's Whisper speech recognition software, equips Spot with the capability to engage in lifelike conversations with humans. Spot's newfound ability to recognize individuals during conversations further enhances its interactive potential.

In the course of experiments, Boston Dynamics discovered Spot's amazing abilities. The robot is able to creatively answer questions, even if it was not programmed to do so. For example, when answering a question about the founder of Boston Dynamics, Spot humorously redirected the query to IT support, which was not explicitly stated in the prompt. In addition, Spot is adept at supporting a given character by making character-appropriate remarks during interactions.

This development marks a significant step in the field of human-robot interaction.

ChatGPT Upgraded: GPT-4's Autonomous Tool Selection

OpenAI has introduced an upgrade to its ChatGPT, powered by GPT-4, by combining various GPT-4 models into a "supermodel." This enhancement enables ChatGPT to independently determine the most effective way to assist users. Additionally, OpenAI is preparing an update for ChatGPT, allowing users to upload PDFs and various other file types. Once uploaded, ChatGPT can engage in discussions and provide insights on the content, including aspect extraction and explanations.

This update goes hand in hand with a second noteworthy feature of GPT-4, which is its ability to automatically select the tools required to perform specific tasks. These tools include alternative models like GPT-4 with Browsing, Advanced Data Analysis, and DALL-E 3. While manual model selection remains possible, the autonomous tool selection in GPT-4 simplifies the process, which is consistent with OpenAI's vision of creating language models capable of autonomously using tools to extend their utility after initial training.

Amazon is currently in the beta testing phase of AI image generation tools designed for its advertisers. This innovation provides a convenient solution for brands looking to create engaging backgrounds or scenes for their product ads, overcoming the limitations of static white background images.

Amazon's new feature aims to improve ad performance by allowing advertisers to place products in lifestyle scenes, potentially boosting click-through rates by up to 40 percent. The tool is user-friendly and accessible to advertisers of all sizes, offering a hassle-free way to generate brand-themed imagery, even if they lack in-house capabilities or agency support. However, as with most AI-generated content, there may be some subtle imperfections, as highlighted in Amazon's own example.

Google has confirmed a significant investment of up to $2 billion in Anthropic, an artificial intelligence company founded by former OpenAI leaders. The financial commitment includes an initial cash investment of $500 million and a further $1.5 billion to be invested over time.

Anthropic is known for its development of Claude 2, a chatbot that competes with OpenAI's ChatGPT and is used by companies such as Slack, Notion and Quora. The startup, founded in 2021, has previously received funding from Salesforce and Zoom and is valued at $4.1 billion.

Claude 2 does an excellent job of summarizing lengthy content, handling up to 75k words, which compares favorably to ChatGPT's roughly 3k words. In addition, Claude 2 has been recognized in studies as a robust self-analysis system among chatbots. Google's continued investment mirrors the growing demand for advanced language models in the AI industry, providing great development opportunities for multiple players.
