And here we are again!
We've got some pretty interesting news for you this week, so let's get started 👽
🤖 Artificial Intelligence
Robots building robots in the pre-produced video Elon showed at this week's Investor Day. To top it all off, Elon Musk wants to see as many humanoid robots as humans in the future 🤖. Full video of the event here.
Figure - the AI Robotics company building the world’s first commercially viable autonomous humanoid robot 🦿. At least that is how they advertise themselves. The question is, will they succeed where Tesla failed? The team is ex-Boston Dynamics and Tesla, so let’s keep an eye on them �
As usual, a new AI model has been launched, this time it belongs to Microsoft. Kosmos-1, the AI that will explain you any image as it understands visual content and can even solve those annoying IQ puzzles, probably better than us.
Another update from Microsoft, Bing now allows you to change their chatbot personality 😆. Choose between creative, balanced and precise. Love it.
OpenAI has just released an API for ChatGPT, which of course allows any company to integrate ChatGPT into their applications, websites, products and services. Can't wait to see what comes next!
🥽 Extended Reality
X-ray vision from your Hololens? Yes, please. X-AR is the new invention by MIT Media Lab researchers of MR headsets that let you see in X-rays. At the moment it only works with RFID tagged objects, but it's as simple as adding the tag to an object and it will have a unique identifier so you can easily find it thanks to your Hololens 🏷️
We also got Meta’s roadmap regarding XR headsets and yes, we are soon getting a Quest 3, which apparently will be slightly more expensive but twice as powerful 🔥
Okay, so Apple better hurry up with that first XR device, because Xiaomi is getting into the game 🥽! The brand has just unveiled its new AR glasses at MWC. The device has integrated colour micro OLED displays with gesture control and the ability to switch to VR mode for total immersion.
Neuralink won't be doing human trials any time soon 🙉. The project was rejected by the FDA due to safety risks, and that's all we know for now, as they refused to comment on the reasons. So I guess Elon won't be turning us into cyborgs just yet. If you're wondering what the FDA is, it's the US Food and Drug Administration, and it's the key to getting the rights to implant technology in humans.

Not surprised by the Neuralink development given its controversial track record with animal testing.
