ChatGPT Users Can Now Invoke GPTs Directly In Chats
OpenAI's latest move shakes up the AI chat landscape. Paid ChatGPT users now wield the power to summon specific GPTs into conversations. This update streamlines user experience, allowing a seamless switch between GPTs tailored for distinct tasks. The integration means each GPT jumps in with full context - a significant boost to utility and efficiency.
However, traction is low; GPTs attract a mere 2.7% of ChatGPT's web traffic. Moderation hurdles persist, with early misuse cases like suggestive romantic bots and political impersonators. OpenAI's human-automated moderation mix has culled some infringers, yet as GPT variety balloons, this issue may intensify. techcrunch
Elon Musk's Neuralink Has Performed Its First Human Brain Implant, And We're A Step Closer To Having Phones Inside Our Heads
Neuralink's leap into human trials marks a profound shift in brain-computer interfaces. Elon Musk's recent announcement on X - "The first human received an implant from yesterday and is recovering well" - signals more than just technological prowess; it's a foray into a future where human cognition could directly interface with digital realms. Neuralink's 'Telepathy' device, a coin-thick brain implant, promises to turn thought into digital action, potentially transforming lives, especially for those with severe physical limitations.
The device's early application aims to restore independence for individuals with motor impairments. "Initial users will be those who have lost the use of their limbs," Musk stated, envisioning a world where communication and interaction are unbound by physical constraints. However, details on the surgical process and the patient's capacity to control external devices through 'Telepathy' remain sparse. Amidst Musk's cautious communication lies a recognition of the ethical and practical complexities inherent in implanting technology within the human brain. techradar
Why does this matter?
Beyond the intended medical applications, Neuralink's technology opens up profound questions about data security within the brain. If our thoughts can control devices, what safeguards will protect against hacking the most private of spaces - our minds? This concern isn't science fiction; it's a looming challenge that may redefine the essence of personal security in the digital age.
