Google Maps Experiments With Generative AI To Improve Discovery
Google Maps is set to transform how we find new spots. With its latest AI-driven feature, it sifts through a treasure trove of data – 250 million spots and countless user reviews – to dish out personalized suggestions. Picture this: a quest for San Francisco's vintage shops yields curated thrift store lists, photo spreads, and even a diner for lunch, all with a vintage touch.
This isn't just a new toy for tech enthusiasts. Select Local Guides are the first to test drive, with broader availability on the horizon. Google's vision? A Maps that's less about A to B and more about uncovering the hidden gems in between. And it's more than idle talk; recent upgrades have already edged Maps closer to a discovery powerhouse than a simple navigator. techcrunch
ChatGPT Enterprise Vs. ChatGPT Team: Which Is The Best For Your Business?
Choosing between ChatGPT Enterprise and ChatGPT Team hinges on scale, need for advanced features, and security requirements. ChatGPT Enterprise, launched for businesses seeking robust AI capabilities, demands a minimum of 150 users. It's a powerhouse with superior models, a quadrupled context window, and premium support – a fit for large-scale applications. Conversely, ChatGPT Team caters to minimal-size teams, eliminating hefty user prerequisites and offering a straightforward, flat-rate pricing model.
ChatGPT Team might be a smaller package, but it still packs a punch with GPT-4 capabilities and self-serve convenience. For smaller businesses or informal groups not requiring the full suite of enterprise tools, this option balances cost with functionality effectively. Yet, enterprises with a keen eye on administration and security will find the additional controls and support of ChatGPT Enterprise indispensable. zdnet
Shopify Unveils AI Editor To Enhance Product Images
Shopify's AI leap levels the e-commerce playfield. Their latest, Shopify Magic, is a boon for small sellers. It's a generative AI toolkit that transforms regular product images into professional-grade visuals. Users can erase or swap backgrounds effortlessly, choosing from presets or AI-generated options. This move echoes similar enhancements by tech behemoths like Meta and Google, yet Shopify's focus is on empowering the 'underdog' entrepreneurs.
"Lowering the barriers to entry for entrepreneurs to present their products in the best light," says Glen Coates, VP of Product at Shopify. Beyond images, Shopify's Sidekick AI promises to streamline operations, honing seller productivity and smarter decision-making. These innovations arrive amidst a tech workforce trim last May, refocusing on core commerce facilitation. Shopify's agility in adapting AI tools for practical e-commerce challenges exemplifies the sector's swift evolution. siliconrepublic
