ChatGPT invades Japan 🏯 

Japan is considering adopting ChatGPT to help run parts of its government.

During Sam Altman’s visit to Japan this week, he spoke with the Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary. During their talk, the secretary said Japan could use ChatGPT to reduce government workers' workload, but only if privacy and cybersecurity concerns are resolved first.

Hot on the heels of Italy's ChatGPT ban, Japan is not willing to take any chances with data breaches.

Altman also promised to tweak the model to better suit Japanese culture and announced OpenAI is considering opening an office in Japan.

The big picture: OpenAI is eager to reassure governments and individuals alike of its commitment to safety and privacy. Scoring the Japanese Government as a customer would be a big win.

Filming with virtual robots 📽️ 

Wonder Dynamics just came out with an AI Studio that replaces complex 3D software and expensive production hardware (and probably some jobs).

Here’s a demo film company SSK Productions created using Wonder Studio to create a full-fledged robot-fight scene, replacing the human actor with a robot in just a couple of clicks (full demo):

The studio detects cuts and tracks the actor throughout the sequence based on a single camera’s footage and transfers it to the character of your choice – all while automatically animating, lighting and composing.

Wonder Studio claims this already eliminates 80% of VFX work on the low end.

Our prediction: We’re going to see both professional and creative media production skyrocket in volume (which means human attention becomes even more valuable) and VFX artists will need to switch to more idea-driven roles vs focusing on technical implementation.


GPT4 🤝 DoNotPay

GPT-4 plugins have just started rolling out for early access, and robot lawyer DoNotPay (who we’ve written about before) has already demoed an integration to automate canceling annoying memberships.
