Unveiling the Future: Google's SGE Adds Image Generation and Writing Features


Google's Search Generative Experience (SGE), already a powerful tool that's revolutionized our digital explorations, is evolving once again. Starting soon, SGE will integrate new features that go beyond mere textual answers. First up, SGE will now have a conversational mode that can also generate images, in a move similar to Bing's integration of OpenAI's DALLE-E 3. Users will be able to specify what type of image they'd like—whether it's a drawing, photo, or painting—and receive up to four results directly within the search experience. These images can then be downloaded or further edited. This exciting addition doesn't stop at SGE; Google Image Search will also benefit from this image-generation functionality.

But that's not all. Google is doubling down on SGE's utility as a writing assistant. In addition to previous features like AI-powered summaries and definitions, users will now be able to draft text within the platform itself. Even more compelling is the fact that this draft-writing feature can be customized; you can make the output longer or shorter and even modify the tone to fit your needs. Imagine the convenience of drafting an email in response to an ad you found during your search, all without leaving the SGE interface. Export options for this feature integrate seamlessly with Google Workspace, allowing for easy transition to apps like Gmail or Google Docs.

As with any AI-based tool, there are concerns about misuse and ethics. Google has restricted the new image generation feature to users 18 and older. This comes after the company implemented stringent filtering policies aimed at preventing the creation of harmful, misleading, or explicit content. For added security, all generated images will contain metadata and invisible watermarking to identify them as AI-generated, a feature powered by SynthID. These updates will initially roll out to a subset of SGE users who have opted in via Google Search Labs, and for now, they'll be limited to English and available only in the U.S.

Historically high growth with lower risk? Its possible

If you’re looking to invest without the day to day volatility of the stock market, then you need to check out Masterworks.com.

Because their unique art investing platform allows you to invest in shares of paintings from artists like Banksy, Basquiat and Yoshitomo Nara … that offer very attractive historical price appreciation and track records at auction.

Take Yoshitomo Nara. Over the last 21 years, his record price at auction has risen by an annualized rate of 36%. Even better, Nara’s Sharpe ratio*, which measures how well the market has performed historically adjusted for volatility, came in at a whopping 1.5 beating the S&P’s .49 over the same time period.

With these metrics, their offerings have sold out fast. But The Deep View readers can use this exclusive link to skip the waitlist.


Legal Quandaries: How AI Voice Cloning is Challenging Copyright Laws


The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has recently cast a spotlight on an emerging challenge in the field of AI: voice cloning. This technology allows the generation of a synthetic voice based on a real person's voice, opening a Pandora's box of potential legal issues. The RIAA is so concerned that it has submitted a request to the U.S. Trade Representative to include AI voice cloning in its annual "Review of Notorious Markets for Counterfeiting and Piracy.” This would mark a significant step, formally recognizing the technology as a potential source of copyright infringement.

Voicify.AI, a company that offers voice models of famous artists, has come under particular scrutiny from the RIAA. The organization believes that Voicify's services allow unauthorized activities, such as ripping YouTube videos and then modifying them using AI-generated voices of famous musicians. This, according to the RIAA, violates not just copyright laws but also an artist's right to publicity. The year 2023 has witnessed an uptick in unauthorized AI vocal clone services, which the RIAA notes have led to a surge in unauthorized derivative works.

While some artists and record labels are finding authorized applications for AI voice cloning, ranging from new types of artistic expression to practical uses in the music industry, the broader legal landscape remains murky. For example, there isn't a uniform law across states about the right of publicity, which covers the use of someone's likeness, name, or, in this case, voice.

As AI voice cloning technology continues to advance, it adds another layer of complexity to the already intricate world of intellectual property rights. The RIAA's move could serve as a catalyst for legal discourse to catch up with technology. However, it remains to be seen how the law will treat AI-generated voices, especially when it intersects with rights like publicity and copyright.

🔒 Ensuring AI Integrity: Deasie's Novel Approach Gets Funded

Deasie, a startup focusing on data governance for text-generating AI models, has raised $2.9 million in seed funding from investors including Y Combinator and General Catalyst. The company aims to make large language models like GPT-4 more reliable by connecting them to unstructured enterprise data such as documents and emails, automatically categorizing this data for sensitivity and relevance. The startup has already signed its first pilot with a multi-billion-dollar U.S. enterprise and plans to expand its engineering team in the coming months. A recent IDC survey indicates a strong need for such governance, with 86% of executives at large firms calling for more oversight of generative AI.

🤖 Kobie.ai: Reinventing Blog Posts Through Generative AI

Kobie Fuller, general partner at Upfront Ventures, is experimenting with the concept of modernizing blog posts through generative AI. His idea involves transforming long-form blog posts into confined micro topics that users can explore via interactive conversations with a bot. His site, Kobie.ai, serves as an experimental platform for these AI-driven conversational interfaces and simulated podcasts. The technology is still in the early stages and that while it doesn't replace the need for original long-form content, it does offer new interactive ways to engage with it.

🛡️ Lakera: The Swiss Startup Safeguarding Generative AI

Swiss startup Lakera aims to fortify the security landscape surrounding Large Language Models (LLMs) used in generative AI. The company has launched with $10 million in funding and offers a product called Lakera Guard to protect against AI vulnerabilities like prompt injections and data leaks. Using insights from an interactive game called Gandalf, Lakera has developed a "prompt injection taxonomy," categorizing different types of text-based attacks against LLMs. This allows enterprises to identify and patch weaknesses in their AI applications. Lakera's timely launch aligns well with impending EU AI regulations, making it a significant player in AI security.

🤝 AMD Bolsters AI Efforts with Nod.ai Acquisition

AMD has acquired Nod.ai, an open-source AI software provider, to enhance its AI development ecosystem. The deal aims to fortify AMD's software offerings, allowing customers to more effectively deploy AI models optimized for AMD hardware. Nod.ai, originally focused on gaming technology, shifted to AI tooling to simplify the deployment of AI models across various platforms, including AMD-powered machines. The acquisition puts AMD in closer competition with Nvidia, which offers similar but largely proprietary solutions. Nod.ai will become part of AMD's AI group, contributing to AMD's efforts to catch up with Nvidia in the growing AI chip market.
