In order to provide the most advanced AI technology, tech goliaths are working nonstop in the age of artificial intelligence. Google’s conversational AI chatbot, Google Bard, received a flurry of updates on Thursday. Bard is now accessible from the corporation in 40 additional languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, and Malayalam. Bengali, Kannada, Arabic, etc. Google has expanded the availability of Bard across more locations, including Brazil and all of Europe, in addition to introducing more languages.

Google’s Bard was presented as a public trial in the US and the UK in March of this year. While the chatbot’s coding was unveiled in April, it was revealed at the Google I/O conference that Bard had upgraded to PaLM 2, added picture searches, and extended its reach to 180 nations. During this time, the queue was also eliminated. Google has been making various upgrades to Bard ever since its debut.

With the most recent features, customers can get reliable information based on their specific queries with a variety of customization options.

Users will now be able to listen to Bard’s comments thanks to this functionality. This can be useful, according to Google, if a user wishes to hear how to pronounce a word correctly or listen to a poem or play. Enter the prompt to activate this function, then hit the sound icon to hear Bard’s responses. Additionally, this service is now accessible in over 40 other languages.

Easily edit Bard’s responses: This feature enables users to alter Bard’s responses in one of five ways: simple, long, short, formal, or informal. You can enlist the aid of the chatbot.

If a user decides to revisit some of his earlier prompts, the pin and rename conversations function can be very helpful. New features to pin and rename your conversations with Bard have been added by Google. A user will now have the option to pin, rename, and pick up recent conversations in the sidebar after starting a chat. More than 40 different languages are now supported by this feature.

WhatsApp Tests Meta AI Chatbot in India and Other Markets

WhatsApp has announced that it is testing its huge language model-powered chatbot, Meta AI, with users in India and a few other areas. The goal of this initiative is to leverage WhatsApp’s massive user base to strengthen its AI products.

The AI chatbot is being tested by the internet giant in a few locations, including the US.

A representative for Meta stated in a statement on Friday that “we’re testing a range of our generative AI-powered experiences publicly in a limited capacity.” The experiences are currently in different stages of development.

India is the largest market for the instant messaging application WhatsApp, with over 500 million users.

In September of last year, the tech giant unveiled Meta AI, a general-purpose chatbot that can respond to user inquiries in chats and produce lifelike pictures from text suggestions.

Furthermore, the business has stated that it will release Llama 3, its upcoming major language model, in the upcoming month. This was confirmed earlier this week.

Apple Policy: No Access to Customer Passcodes, Says Company

Amid the controversy surrounding reports that Apple refused to unlock Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s iPhone at the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) request, sources close to the matter revealed on Wednesday that no one at the multinational tech company was contacted directly in India or around the world to unlock the device. According to reports, the ED had “informally” sought Apple to assist in unlocking the iPhone. Apple, on the other hand, is adamant that it will not provide the passcode to an iOS device that is locked at the moment.

According to the company’s “Legal Process Guidelines” for governments and law enforcement outside of the US, “No, Apple does not have access to a customer’s passcode.” Emails with questions or concerns about the legal system should be sent to lawenforcement@apple.com. There was no documented correspondence between ED and Apple, according to sources.

Requests for accounts from the government, law enforcement, and business sectors are subject to Apple’s notice policy. The official company document states that Apple “will notify customers and account holders unless there is a non-disclosure order or applicable law prohibiting notice, or where Apple, based only on its reasonable belief that, in its sole judgment, providing notice might immediately put a member of the public in danger of serious damage or death, that the case involves child endangerment, or that notification is not relevant to the case’s fundamental facts,”

To help with investigations and prosecutions, Apple objected to or challenged more than a dozen court orders in the US in 2015 and 2016. The objective was to compel the company “to use its existing capabilities to extract data like contacts, photos, and calls from locked iPhones running on operating systems iOS 7 and older.” One famous example is a 2016 court battle in which the FBI demanded that Apple unlock a “work-issued” iPhone that was found on one of the shooters in the December 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, which left 22 people injured and 14 dead. The iPhone was not unlocked by Apple. Afterward, the government dropped its lawsuit, claiming that it had used a third party’s assistance to unlock the iPhone.

OpenAI Unveils Voice Cloning Tool ‘Voice Engine’: Here’s All You Need to Know

A new frontier in artificial intelligence is being highlighted by OpenAI, which is also voicing concerns about deepfake hazards. OpenAI is providing early test findings for a tool that can read words aloud in a convincing human voice.

A representative for the company stated that it is offering Voice Engine early use cases and demos, which are a scaled-down version of the text-to-speech technology that it has already supplied to about ten developers. OpenAI decided against a wider rollout of the feature after briefing the media earlier in the month.

An OpenAI representative stated that the company made the decision to reduce the release after getting input from various stakeholders, including legislators, business leaders, educators, and creatives.

In a blog post on Friday, the business said, “We acknowledge that producing speech that mimics human voices carries significant dangers, which are particularly important during an election year.

Concerns and Advancements in AI Voice Cloning Technology

Some situations have already seen the deployment of other AI technologies to create speech fakes. A fake but convincing-sounding phone call in January, supposedly from President Joe Biden, urged New Hampshire residents not to cast ballots in the primary. This action heightened concerns about artificial intelligence prior to important international elections.

In contrast to OpenAI’s earlier attempts at producing audio content, Voice Engine can produce speech that has the distinct intonations and rhythm of real humans. To replicate a person’s voice, the software only need 15 seconds of audio that has been recorded of them speaking.
