杗.I Companies Enter Panic Mode

Weve got a lot to cover, so Ill get right to it

Earlier this week Musk set a limit on the number of tweets users can see each day based on their account status.

At first, I found this odd. Why would a social media platform restrict the content viewers can see?

Thats like a store telling shoppers they can buy 3 things per day.

Then Musk posted this:

Musk is placing a cap on Twitter use to prevent A.I companies from using private data to train their AI models.

Why?

Because every time A.I models are trained using private and protected data:

  • YOU are put at risk for identity and password theft.

  • Content ownerslose moneysincetheir content is used without compensation.

This has been a major legal issue since the start of 2023. To safeguard themselves from lawsuits, companies are making a few changes you should know about

#1 - OpenAI has disabled Bing Browsing (the plugin that allowed ChatGPT to search the internet).

They say its to do right by content owners. But the real reason is OpenAI and Microsoft are being sued left and right for scraping private data from hundreds of millions of users including children of all ages.

Notification on my ChatGPT account this morning

#2 - Google secretly edited their Terms of Agreement to declare that any data on Google is fair game for training. This not only protects them from lawsuits but also gives Google more ammo to build their A.I models.

From Googles Privacy Policy Archives

(Green is the new info added)

This means that anything youve shared with Google (like your location) or posted on the internet will be used by Google.

As of now, there is very regulation with what A.I models are trained on. To keep your data safe, be careful about what you share on the internet and check your account settings to see what content you allow to integrate with the web.

NEW Midjourney Update

Everyones got a guilty pleasure

And with no shame, Ill admit mine is creating A.I images with Midjourney.

(Seriously, in one month I burned through all my prompting credits in less than 40 hours #sorrynotsorry)

Earlier this week Midjourney made my day with a few new updates.

Here are the top 3:

Update #1 - Side panning. Now you can expand your images in all directions.

Prompt: Animated robot scuba diving in the ocean with coral and fish, realistic style wide. (left pic)

Here, I clicked the > button to extend the image right. (right pic)

Nothing special yet, but just wait.. (this parts my favorite)

Update #2 - Double prompting with Remix

Go to your settings and turn on remix mode. Now when you extend your image, you can prompt what comes next.

1st Prompt: Robot writing a newsletter on Mars wide pano realistic with hyper-realistic colors.

Then I extended the image right and remixed it with a 2nd prompt:

2nd Prompt: Futuristic coffee shop with robot customers.

***Tip from a prompting addict - For best results, zoom out on the image by 1.5 before extending your image

If youve ever used Midjourney, you know this ones a game-changer.

And last but not least.

Update #3 - Change the background of an image

1st Prompt: A robot looking at a downtown skyline watching the sunset on the side of a cliff, back view.

To change the background, I clicked variation and plugged in my 2nd prompt:

2nd Prompt: Fireworks that illuminate the sky over a futuristic city.
