Generative chatbots, are we alone in the universe, AI and the unknown Lope de Vega

The winter is finally over and it is obvious that these winter months we only talked about ChatGPT. With lots of threats and concerns, we are still to set up common ground for using generative AI-based solutions.

These concerns are equally shared by OpenAI, the research community behind ChatGPT. That is what spurred the release of a tool designed to detect whether text has been written by artificial intelligence. However, described as not 100 % reliable a new classifier tool has been trained to distinguish between text written by a human and that written by a variety of AI, not just ChatGPT. This news is positive first of all for academic institutions where case of academic dishonesty multiplied with the new release of ChatGPT.

Meanwhile Microsoft keeps on pouring investment into OpenAI looking to secure benefits from new technology built in its traditional products. A public preview of Microsoft’s cloud-based Azure OpenAI service says it allows businesses to use AI without having to build infrastructure. Other plans involve adding AI to Bing search engine. Although Microsoft didn’t give any details on how AI would be integrated into Windows 12, it is obvious that it is in the roadmap. It is even more obvious since parts of Windows already use AI, from system management to search, speech recognition, grammar correction, and even noise suppression and camera image processing.

Faced up with an enormous popularity of ChatGPT Chinese technology companies announced their plans to launch similar products. Baidu, Alibaba, JD.com and NetEase, revealed their plans for ChatGPT rivals. There are certain issues that tech companies in China have to overcome in developing such systems – one of being the intense scrutiny from Chinese authorities in censoring any content chatbot may use. However, Alibaba already announced that its cloud division has been working on a ChatGPT-style platform. NetEase said that its education subsidiary Youdao has been developing a generative AI, to be integrated into its education products.

Here we will answer the basic questions about the project.

The editors of Global CIO discussed with Ahmet Hakan Göral, CIO at Boutique Rugs and winner of the Project of the Year 2023 contest, his current projects, the approach to digital transformation and the specifics of the role of CIO in retail.

April was full of new initiatives from vendors as well as some fascinating news on the technology front. With Olympics in Paris approaching, more  news will be flowing in from the capital of France.

My profession, the role of CIO, unfortunately means that sometimes I come to a company to replace another CIO. Presumably, the previous CIO did not suit the company, and they decided to replace him or her.
