👋👋 Hey there, Humans!

Gear up for another edition of Unlocked by AI, your go-to digest for the most thrilling AI breakthroughs and state-of-the-art tools that are shaping our future.

We’ve curated a treasure trove of the freshest AI trends and the competitive dynamics altering the digital landscape.

Our goal? To keep you in the loop and spark your imagination with the latest and greatest in AI innovation.

Ready to dive in? Let’s get started on this week’s tech trek! 🚀🌐

🤖 The Biggest Things in AI Recently

1️⃣ When Growth Takes Over: Witness the innovation first hand here:

So, this happened yesterday.

ChatGPT: “It’s not you, it’s me”.

Post-DevDay, ChatGPT Plus faced a surge in demand and (probably) a surge in compute costs—so much so that we’ve personally seen our fair share of “Network Errors” this week.

While ChatGPT Plus takes a breather, you can still tap into GPT-4 through Bing or via Azure’s OpenAI service if your business lives in Microsoft.

Your next-best option is Claude—its latest model is #2 behind GPT-4 and handles ~100-page PDFs with impressive accuracy.

2️⃣ Microsoft is finally rolling out Copilot, its AI helper, to its >280,000,000 Teams users this month.

Not to sound like a broken record, but here’s what companies with a Microsoft Copilot license can now access:

  • Meeting summaries, transcriptions, and note-taking.
  • Drafting messages in Teams chats.
  • Distilling key points from lengthy chats and channels.

And most crucially: it can clean up your (very) messy background for virtual meetings.

Why it matters: This is a pivotal moment to gauge if “AI at work” truly delivers. The Neuron has two burning questions:

  1. Will people use Copilot?
  2. Will companies pay an extra $30/month/user for Copilot?

The answer to (1) seems to be yes. 77% of Copilot users don’t want to give it up and 70% report feeling more productive. Of course, feeling productive ≠ being productive, and 70% doesn’t feel that high.

The answer to (2) is TBD. If the demos are anything to go by, we foresee many companies paying extra for Copilot.

BUT, and it’s a big BUT…the pathway to access Copilot is really friggin’ confusing. We’re still waiting for access, but we advise companies to go here to get started.

3️⃣ X launched Grok, its competitor to ChatGPT Elon Musk’s ChatGPT alternative “Grok” is finally here—for cozy friends and insiders, of course.

Grok is somewhere in between ChatGPT-3 and GPT-3.5 in capability.

So while impressively efficient having just been trained on 33B parameters over two months, Grok is definitely a ways behind ChatGPT-4.

But it’s pretty darn unique from anything we’ve seen.

For one, it has a stand-out personality. Like, the type of energy you get at a NYC comedy club at 2am (see here for proof). So Grok definitely sounds the most human like from any chatbot we’ve seen, which is a +1.

It’s also an open book, designed to answer “almost anything.” This diverges from ChatGPT’s very cautious approach to potentially harmful content—a point Musk has vocally criticized.

It pulls the latest info from Elon’s other playground X/Twitter so you get real-time information. Clever. Conveniently, Grok is currently available to anyone paying $16/month for X Premium+. 

4️⃣ Study: GenAI boosts low-performing workers most  🚀 — A new report shows AI tools like ChatGPT are transforming knowledge work, with low-performing employees seeing the biggest benefit. The key for workers — becoming “cyborgs” and “centaurs,” meshing AI into workflows vs handing off tasks.
