Is Midjourney using copyrighted materials? 🤔
⚖️ GenAI models and copyright, Apple Vision Pro release date, converting any file in ChatGPT, and more!
1 – MidJourney Catching Criticism 😬
This could get awkward.
Like we shared on today’s show, the newest version of Midjourney, V6, is not only producing amazingly realistic results, it might be TOO realistic.
Especially when it comes to its ability to seemingly duplicate copyrighted movies and TV shows.
I consider this a smoking gun for Midjourney's flagrant copyright infringement. A 6-word prompt can replicate a Dune still nearly 1:1 every time. These aren't variations, it's the same prompt run repeatedly.
Try it yourself. Merry Christmas Midjourney.

What It Means:
Keep an eye on what happens in the New York Times vs. OpenAI case, as it will likely impact any future litigation between the TV/Movie industries and AI image/video startups like Midjourney.
For now, your company should have an open discussion on using AI art, as Midjourney’s updated TOS isn’t very friendly.
2 – AI-powered kitchens coming 🧑🍳️
Think you can totally opt out of Generative AI?
Well, you can. But it’ll be harder than you think. GenAI usage is about to become more than just choosing what LLM is right for your business.
Case in point: Samsung is bringing a maybe-too-smart Smart AI fridge to kitchens everywhere.
Get ready for a kitchen upgrade at CES 2024! Samsung is unveiling the 2024 Bespoke 4-Door Flex™ Refrigerator with AI Family Hub™+.
Smart, connected, and designed for the future of cooking. Exciting, isn't it? 😍

What It Means:
Is an AI-powered, smart camera-enabled fridge cool? Frick yah!
(Oh, see what we did there with “cool”? Lolz)
We see 2024 being the year of hardware/large language model integration. So many companies and device-makers have miserably failed at their own attempts at in-house AI implementation.
So will LLMs finally make our devices actually smart? We’ll see.
3 – AI Announcements at CES 🧑💻️
The buzz around CES is getting louder, and it's all about AI!
The Consumer Electronics Show kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas. For 50+ years, CES has proved to be where the future of tech gets announced.
AI is expected to grab many of the headlines at CES this week. From companion robots armed with ChatGPT technology, to smart belts designed for the visually impaired, and the seamless integration of voice tech with generative AI systems – CES is set to be an AI extravaganza.

What It Means:
Like we just talked about above, prepare to see a lot of GPT integrations (and other LLM integrations) coming to hardware products.
TBH, we’d be super careful before buying a LLM-powered piece of hardware from Average Joe Company. With the easy ability to steer a LLM away from its guardrails, you might not wanna buy that GPT-powered robot.
Not yet, anyways.
4 – Deloitte Going All In on GenAI 🏢
Deloitte is making waves by going all-in on GenAI with the launch of ‘PairD’, an AI chatbot designed to assist 75,000 employees in Europe and the Middle East, Deloitte is revolutionizing how work gets done.
But don't go thinking it's all smooth sailing – employees are advised to double-check PairD’s output for accuracy.
This move signals a major shift in how companies are embracing AI, with Deloitte's investment aimed at avoiding layoffs and paving the way for a new era of smart technology.
What It Means:
We’ve called out the management consultant industry at large for its seemingly snail-essque response to GenAI.
With companies like EY, Accenture and Deloitte finally responding in a big way, it’s important now that the companies hiring management consultants ask the tough questions.
How are you using LLMs? Which models are you using? What time savings and cost savings are you seeing? Will those savings be passed to us, the end consumer? How are you verifying outputs from your GenAI models?
Don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions.
Numbers to watch
