It’s All About Integration

Hello, AI advocates. Art Fern here with today’s featured AI, but first: Are you sick of hearing about ChatGPT? Are you done with stories about Bing’s version of the ChatBot coming unhinged? Do you long for the days before conversational AI was all anyone ever talked about? Well, now you can put all that behind you when you sign up for apps that feature GPT-3.5 integrations. There are hundreds of apps available now, with thousands more to follow.

Today, look for DuckDuckGo’s AI assist feature, which summarizes Wikipedia pages to answer search queries. Soon, Salesforce-owned Slack will use ChatGPT to draft replies and comments. For extra fun, visit your Chrome Extensions to find AI-powered add-ons for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Don’t worry about ChatGPT. Now, it’s all about integration.

I watched part of a Johnny Carson documentary late last night while waiting for my interview on CNN, where I spoke about the bipartisan bill to ban TikTok. It’s a highly political topic, but data privacy and security should not be politicized. We need serious regulation, and I’m pretty sure this bill is not about protecting us from bad actors getting hold of our data, which is sad – this fear-mongering bill is the legislation that our elected leaders are concentrating on.
