TikTok Introduces New Artificial Intelligence Tools



Article: Meet TikTok Symphony, our new Creative AI suite - TikTok

TikTok Symphony is a suite of Artificial Intelligence products, including Creative Assistant which helps users put together posts. Plus, Ad Manager to help optimize ads being run on TikTok. Another feature are Custom Avatars which give users the ability to create avatars for things like foreign language posts, etc.

TikTok is, of course, owned by China and is operating here in the United States. Because of that, I do not use it, since I don't want my data being used by the Chinese.

Apple CEO Says Artificial Intelligence Will Cause Reduced Phone Usage



Article: Tim Cook says it's a 'significant possibility' people use their iPhones less because of AI - Business Insider

Tim Cook is saying that iPhone users might very well not want to use their devices as much with his Apple Intelligence on them.

I would definitely agree, since I certainly don't want to use a device if it has Artificial Intelligence built into it. I love AI for creating art, music and more. But, only when I choose to use it. I don't want it wandering around my devices and doing whatever it wants to without my consent. I felt exactly the same when Personal Assistants like Siri came out. I didn't want them always on and listening to what I was saying or doing.

Mickey Mouse Horror Film Will Star "Terrifier" Actor



Article: Terrifier Star Sets Sail as Steamboat Willie in Disney-Inspired Horror Film Screamboat - MovieWeb

"Terrifier" star David Howard Thornton will play the lead in a new horror spoof based on Mickey Mouse of his "Steamboat Willie" era. The film will be called "Screamboat" and will be out next year. The producers are the same ones behind "Terrifier" and the Grinch horror spoof "The Mean One."

All of this is possbile because 100 years has passed since Mickey Mouse's debut in "Steamboat Willie," so the copyright has run out. This has allowed filmmakers to do whatever they want with that specific incarnation of Mickey Mouse. But that incarnation only. The rest of Mickey's appearances are still under active copyright and can't be touched. For now.

Bill Gates Starts Construction of Nuclear Power Plant



Article: Bill Gates is breaking ground on a nuclear power plant in Wyoming - PBS NewsHour

Artificial Intelligence needs electricity, A LOT of electricity. And so, Bill Gates, who helped create Microsoft, has broken ground on a new kind of nuclear power plant in Wyoming.

Being built next to what will be a soon-to-be-decommissioned coal plant, this nuclear plant will be the first in the world to use sodium as the cooling medium instead of water. In a time when water is starting to become more scarce in parts of the world, using a different mode of cooling for nuclear power plants is very important.

Article: The Opaque Investment Empire Making OpenAI’s Sam Altman Rich - The Wall Street Journal
