Top AI news of the week
🤖 Apple WWDC 2023: Machine Learning Announcements
Apple unveiled some new software updates for its fleet of products at WWDC 2023. In addition to some new product updates, Apple presented the App Journal. Journal is an ML-powered personalized journalling app. Apple is also improving input autocorrection using machine learning. The highlight of WWDC 2023 was the newly announced Apple Vision Pro headset. Apple Vision Pro seamlessly blends digital content with your physical space. Apple calls it Spatial Computing. The headset costs 3400 dollars and will be available in the USA early next year.
Fun fact: Apple did not mention the term "artificial intelligence" once, but instead spoke of "machine learning".

🔎 DeepMind AlphaDev
Deepmind, Google's AI branch, has unveiled AlphaDev, an AI system that uses reinforcement learning. The system can independently discover faster computer science algorithms. It thus outperforms algorithms developed over decades by scientists and engineers. AlphaDev has already discovered faster algorithms for sorting data. These new algorithms are already part of two standard C++ coding libraries. These libraries are used trillions of times a day by programmers worldwide. AlphaDev is a significant step towards using AI to optimize the world's code.

🔥 Aleph Alpha Control AI: New Generation of Explainable AI Models
Aleph Alpha, a German-based AI start-up, has introduced a new generation of explainable AI models. Explainability and trustworthiness are considered a weakness of large language models. Aleph Alpha wants to make AI more comprehensible. In April, Aleph Alpha already integrated a fact check into its models. These steps are understandable because of the upcoming regulatory requirements of the EU AI Act.
