"Adobe Fireflies & Google Bard: A Dynamic Duo in the AI Art World"


In A.I. News Today:

  1. 'Adobe is integrating its Firefly AI models into Google\'s Bard, an AI system similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Firefly, currently in public beta, will become Bard\'s premier generative AI partner, providing text-to-image capabilities. This partnership follows Microsoft\'s launch of Image Creator, a generative AI tool powered by OpenAI’s DALL-E 2.

    Bard users will soon be able to generate images using Firefly and modify them with Adobe Express, choosing from templates, fonts, and stock images. Unlike some generative AI tools, Firefly is designed to generate images free from copyrighted materials, using licensed images from Adobe Stock and public domain content.

    Adobe and Google are focusing on a creator-centric approach, using technology from the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) to tag images created with Firefly via Bard with "content credentials." These credentials provide information about the model used to generate the content and any modifications made, ensuring transparency and authenticity. The text does not provide the name and date of the art created or any edits made to the image. However, it mentions that the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), founded in 2019, has over 1,000 active members, including Stability AI, Spawning AI, Associated Press, BBC, Getty Images, Microsoft, Nikon, Reuters, and The Wall Street Journal. Google is notably absent from CAI\'s membership.

    ' "Google has unveiled PaLM 2, a next-generation language model, at its annual I/O conference. The company claims that PaLM 2 outperforms other leading AI systems on some tasks and will be integrated into 25 new products and features. As a general-purpose AI model, PaLM 2 can power chatbots, translate languages, write code, and analyze images. The most notable application of PaLM 2 is in Google's chatbot, Bard, which now supports multiple languages and allows users to send photos. Moreover, PaLM 2 will be incorporated into Google's Workspace apps as a co-author for text, spreadsheets, and slides. However, Google faces challenges in mitigating AI misbehavior and addressing toxic language harms in its AI system. The chatbot is initially available in three languages at launch.

    ' 'The Motley Fool, founded in 1993 by Tom and David Gardner, offers financial advice through various platforms. AI has gained significant attention following the launch of ChatGPT in November, with Microsoft investing $13 billion in OpenAI. Google recently announced numerous AI developments at its 2023 I/O developer conference. These include the latest version of its Pathways Language Model (PaLM) LLM, PaLM 2, which has improved understanding, generation, and translation capabilities. Google\'s flagship chatbot Bard has been upgraded to PaLM 2 LLM and integrated with Google Lens. Bard is now available to the public in over 180 countries. Google has also incorporated AI technology into 25 products and features, such as Workspace\'s "Help Me Write" and a new Google Photos tool, Magic Editor. Additionally, Google Cloud will receive new AI-powered tools, including Duet AI for programming assistance and code review. Google is set to introduce various AI-powered features and improvements, including a new feature called Perspectives in Google Search. Perspectives will provide users with videos, social media posts, and discussion boards to offer a more comprehensive view of a topic. The company will also test an enhanced version of Search, powered by generative AI, which can answer complex questions and assist with product choices. Search Labs, where users can test these new capabilities, will soon open for early access. Additionally, Google is developing generative AI tools for Pixel and Android devices, such as wallpapers, custom emojis, and a cinematic mode. Over 50 apps have been redesigned with AI at the core, and the updates will be rolled out across 3 billion active Android devices.

    ' 'Google is working to integrate AI into its search engine using a large language model (LLM) called Pathways Language Model (PaLM) and a Multitask Unified Model (MUM). Alphabet\'s shares surged 5% after Google\'s AI announcements. Google is also adding a new filter called "Perspectives" to focus on people\'s opinions on searched topics. Additionally, Google unveiled its first foldable smartphone in the Pixel lineup, priced at $1,800 and set to ship next month. Foldable phones accounted for 1% of overall smartphone shipments in the previous year, with 14 million units sold worldwide.

    ' "Google Bard, an AI chatbot, is now available in 180 countries and territories, including India, and supports Japanese and Korean languages, with 40 more languages coming soon. Users must accept Bard's privacy policy terms, which state that Google will collect conversation data, product usage information, general user location, and feedback to improve its products, services, and machine-learning technologies. This data is stored in users' Google Accounts for up to 18 months by default, but users can choose to auto-delete or change the duration to 3 or 36 months. Google advises users not to include identifiable information in their conversations with Bard and not to rely on its responses for professional advice. Future features for Bard include more visual responses with images, integration with other Google apps, and image generation capabilities in collaboration with Adobe Firefly.

    ' "Google is reintroducing its Bard AI-chatbot at the I/O developer conference, aiming for a more favorable reception. Bard has been using PaLM 2, similar to Bing Chat's use of OpenAI's GPT-4. Google is removing the waitlist for Bard, making it available in over 180 countries and territories in English, with plans to launch support for Japanese, Korean, and 40 other languages in the near future. New features include multimodal queries that work with images and extensions from Google's own apps and services, as well as third-party partners, such as Adobe's Firefly generative image generation service. Bard can now surface images in its responses and has expanded coding capabilities powered by Google Lens. Enhanced code citations, mapping results with Google Maps, and structured data in tables are also coming soon. Additionally, Google is expanding the feature that allows exporting Python code to Replit, a browser-based IDE. Lastly, Bard is getting a dark mode. Despite these improvements, Google faces an uphill battle due to Bard's early perception and competition from ChatGPT. The market compelled the company to respond. Google could have integrated Bard into its search engine, similar to Microsoft's incorporation of it into Bing.
