This week in AI and ML news: Photoshop introduces generative AI features, JPMorgan moves to develop an investment chatbot, and more.

AI in Computer Vision in the Era of Value graphic

Author’s Note

The Era of Value has seen emerging solutions like computer vision deliver on their promise, powering organizations through holistic digital transformations. The Age of With will bring greater collaboration between increasingly sophisticated solutions and the human workforce. Across the restaurant space, within the agtech sector, and throughout other industries, AI is already augmenting human capabilities to evolve legacy processes and accelerate change. Deloitte offers four key actions to guide businesses in harnessing AI as effectively as possible. In our latest blog, we take a look at how they apply to computer vision. Check it out.

Adobe Adds Generative AI Features to Photoshop

Editing images in Photoshop is about to get much simpler thanks to the addition of generative AI-powered features. Generative Fill, arriving for all users soon, will allow Creative Cloud customers to alter the size of images and add or remove objects via short text prompts. Adobe has announced plans to integrate its Firefly generative AI software with additional applications including Adobe Express.   

What about the rise of deep fakes? AI-generated images like the photo of the Pope in a puffy jacket (created with Midjourney) are already realistic enough to fool users on Twitter and Reddit. In a column for The New York Times, Farhad Manjoo wonders if altering images with AI is becoming too easy as a result of recent advancements. Adobe has stressed that Firefly is only trained on stock images and that they’ve introduced additional safety features to restrict certain types of potentially dangerous content. Adobe’s Content Credentials tags will clearly designate any image that’s been edited with the help of Firefly or other AI tools. 

JPMorgan Is Developing an Investment Chatbot

From small start-ups to the biggest names in Big Tech, just about everyone is making moves to answer OpenAI and compete with its headline-grabbing generative solutions. News broke this week that JPMorgan Chase is at work on a ChatGPT-like tool capable of offering investment advice to users. The bank has filed an application to trademark a new product, IndexGPT. According to the filing it will leverage AI for “analyzing and selecting securities tailored to customer needs.” While light on specific details, the filing makes it clear that IndexGPT will rely on Generative Pre-trained Transformer models to make its recommendations.

AI was a major topic of discussion for JPMorgan Chase during its annual investor conference earlier in the week. According to CNBC, the NYC-based organization employs a team of around 1,500 ML engineers and data scientists who are actively exploring additional use cases for GPT models and other generative AI solutions. 

AI Could Help Fight Antibiotic-Resistant Bugs

In recent decades, the development of new antibiotics has lagged behind the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria. Among the most persistent superbugs is Acinetobacter baumannii, a species often found in hospitals. Surviving for long periods of time, A. baumannii can lead to deadly infections including meningitis and pneumonia. Some strains are resistant to nearly every known antibiotic. Thanks to the efforts of researchers from MIT and McMaster University, the scientific community has come closer to successfully combating A. baumannii and other common species of drug-resistant bacteria. 

A new study, published this week in Nature Chemical Biology, describes how researchers used an ML algorithm to identify a novel antibiotic capable of stopping A. baumannii infections from spreading. Learn more about their approach and the immense potential for AI to accelerate drug discovery.
