Metas Secret A.I Plans

Just when we find out that GPT-5 (the next version of ChatGPT) will be all things audio

AKA ChatGPT but for sound.

I gave it a spin and its true, AudioCraft is definitely the best audio tool out there. You can use AudioCraft to:

This is the 2nd major open-source tool by Meta in the last two weeks.

For those of you new here, open source means developers can access the code and use it however they want. for free (supposedly).

But Im seeing a trend here that no one seems to be talking about

Open source is the new thing in the A.I space. Not just with Meta, but with other tech companies too like Anthropic and Google.

My question: Why are tech companies spending thousands developing new A.I models, just to let businesses use them for free?

Seems odd, right?

My theory: Tech companies want business to integrate their A.I models into their companies so that they cant live without them.

Then later down the line, theyll charge businesses to keep using the software. Companies will either have to pay up, or rework their entire business.

Why do I think so? Well, its already happened before..

Back in 2018 MongoDB and Redis Labs (two major software companies) did this very thing.

The cherry on top?

Meta owns all of the data they trained AudioCraft with but has NOT released the royalties.

Meaning Meta may get a cut every time someone uses a sound in their products. The stage has already been set, my friends.

Now, we wait.

A.I Tool Goes Viral On TikTok

Theres a new A.I tool going viral on TikTok and if you ask me

It deserves all of the hype.

On TikTok alone, the tool has almost 4 million views and thousands of preorders.

The crazy part?

The tool was NOT developed by a major tech giant. It was created by 2 Stanford students. in medical school.

The tool?

TranscribeGlasses.

Basically, A.I glasses that give you subtitles for the real world.

Take a look:

The goal is to help people with hearing loss understand whats happening in conversations and moves. But eventually, they want to use it as a translation tool when traveling.

Google tried something similar, called Google Glass but that turned out to be an epic failure.

(So bad that Google just stopped selling them in March 2023)

But I think TranscribeGlass has a chance as theyre selling for $99 and are easier to use than Google Glass which sold for $1,500.

You can join the waitlist for TranscribeGlass HERE, which will be released sometime this Winter.
