The Bulletin #24: Big Tech Getting Creative with AI, Startup News, & Internship Opportunities
How tech companies are planning to utilize AI, interesting things happening in the startup space, and internship opportunities! 🕺
🤖 How AI is Shaking Up Big Tech
The AI boom has begun and nobody wants to be left behind. Entrepreneurs and big tech companies are implementing AI into their projects in some interesting ways🌟.
🪟The Microsoft Windows 11 update puts Bing’s new AI capabilities on the taskbar. When typing a question or request into the Microsoft search bar, users will be given the option to complete the process with Bing’s AI chatbot 🔮 without having to open a browser window.
🤖Roblox is testing implementations of generative AI that will allow anyone to build virtual objects and experiences. Rather than having to write complex code to build items in the game, the goal is for users to be able to build/customize buildings, avatars, and terrain using natural language. Rather than joining a meta-verse, we might be able to build our own 👀.
⛏Meta is looking to “turbocharge” their AI tools. New features are in the works, including AI personas that help users have a seamless online experience, additional Instagram filters and chat tools for WhatsApp and Messenger, as well as video and multi-model experiences.
