Creative ad agency McKinney developed a quiz game called “Are You Blacker than ChatGPT?” to shine a light on AI bias.
The game tests a person’s knowledge of Black culture against what ChatGPT has been trained to know about the Black community.
Woods said the idea for the quiz came last year during a creative brainstorm at McKinney.
Woods said it doesn’t seem like ChatGPT is learning from the quiz, either, based on the fact that it keeps getting the same answers wrong in many cases.
Carter said that ChatGPT could work better for more cultures with better sourcing and having more inclusive data collection.
Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 sales will be halted again in the U.S. starting at 5 PM tomorrow, January 18, due to the rejection of a bid by Apple to have the sales ban paused throughout its appeal of an ITC decision that found its blood oxygen feature infringe on patents by medical tech company Masimo.
Meanwhile, Apple has another route available to avoid a halt: U.S. Customs said earlier in the week that it would consider a software update that disabled Apple Watch blood oxygen sensing features to put the devices beyond the scope of the ITC ban, which means the company could effectively keep selling them if it pushes a firmware update to turn off all the pulse oximetry stuff.
Apple’s appeal will still continue, however, and this doesn’t mean they won’t eventually win that, which would allow for a resumption of sale with the blood oxygen features included.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow when that 5 PM ET deadline hits.
For those keeping track, this means the current Apple Watch models have now been removed from sale, resumed sales, and are pending another sales stoppage, all in under a month.
IT budgets should increase in 2024, but it still could be tough going for startupsI think most people would agree that 2023 was a challenging time to be a startup.
Meanwhile, sales cycles were longer and many startups struggled to grow at a decent pace.
This means that startups that aren’t well capitalized right now could continue to struggle in 2024, and the flipping of the calendar isn’t going to change that.
It means they have to fight for their piece of enterprise budgets, and that, possibly, 2024 could look a lot like 2023.
The budget outlookA good starting point for budget discussions is what the proposed budget looks like.
