These are the real days of catching up with the chatbot boom. In the last 24 hours alone, there have been hoaxes, FTC complaints, and… advertisements. Banzai. He explains how Microsoft is displaying ads in Bing chatbots, while OpenAI may have to stop releasing ChatGPT in the face of his FTC complaints.
The Center for AI and Digital Policy (CAIDP), a nonprofit research organization, says OpenAI’s model is “biased and deceptive” and threatens privacy and public safety. According to CAIDP, OpenAI also fails to meet the Commission’s guidelines for AI to be transparent, fair, and accountable. There is no guarantee that the FTC will respond to your complaint.

The Greatest Story You May Have Missed
Ah, the end of the fun.
Over the past few days, users have reported seeing ads within Microsoft’s Bing chatbot experience. Based on the limited examples we have seen, GPT-4 powered chatbots embed relevant advertising links depending on the user’s actual question. It seems most people (including us) aren’t seeing ads yet, but in the near future we’ll be seeing them more often and in more places. In a Bing blog post, Yusuf Mehd, Microsoft’s vice president of search and devices, said the ads would appear in the form of linked quotes, with additional links in the “more info” section below Bing’s response to the query. I explained that it would appear. In the future, Microsoft may add the ability to show more links from his website when hovering over a link from an advertiser, driving more traffic.

Probably the most beautiful EV of the year.
The Polestar 3 was recently shown in New York for its North American debut, so we had to check it out. It just might be the prettiest new SUV in 2023. The Polestar 3 is built on the same platform as the Volvo EX90, but the company has made some key changes so he doesn’t confuse the two. Instead of three rows of seats, the Polestar 3 has up to two rows of seats, with slightly less rear stowage, resulting in a more spacious cabin.
T2 is led by a former Twitter employee who wants to recreate Twitter’s “public square”.
With the “traditional” Twitter checkmark about to disappear (tomorrow!), one of Twitter’s alternatives hopes to attract some of its OG verified users to its platform. T2, an invitation-only service led by two former Twitter employees, said it would allow accounts to carry over “traditional” Twitter authentication to the site. T2 is part of a growing period of Twitter alternatives that emerged after the Musk acquisition. Founder Gabor Cselle has made it clear that he intends to create a “fairly straightforward copy of Twitter with some simplifications.”
The hidden code references the game on TV in the Netflix app.
Netflix may have started (or at least is about to start) testing the game for TV, based on code in the app developer Steve Moser shared with Bloomberg. It reportedly uncovered hidden references to games that were being played, as well as additional code that indicated the possibility of using the phone as a controller to play them. His one line in the app seems to read, “I need a controller to play games on my TV. Does he use this phone as a game controller?” The streaming giant has released several games in 2021 on Android, iPhone and iPad, but those games were notably absent from the Netflix app for TV.
