Meta and IBM launched the AI Alliance
PLUS: Will you finally use Bing now?
Good morning, human brains. Welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.
Here’s what’s on the menu today:
Does more AI safety mean less AI safety? ⚔️ 🔥
Over 50 AI leaders (Meta, IBM, NASA, and more) formed an AI Alliance.
Another adorable musical tool from Google 🤖 🎷
Google launched Instruments Playground. It’s a new text-to-music tool.
Will Bing’s new AI tools finally convince you to use it? 🏋️♂️ 💪
Microsoft unveiled Deep Search, its new AI tool for Bing Search.
The AI Alliance or Game of Thrones? ⚔️ 🔥
In November, we reported on Meta, Hugging Face, and Scaleway’s partnership. The partnership aims to foster an open, cooperative way to accelerate AI in the French tech scene.
Baguette, anyone?… 🥖
Yesterday, Meta, IBM, and more launched the AI Alliance. They claim the point is to foster more open AI resources and stable working groups.
Why would I care?
It contains over 50 AI industry leaders, research pioneers, and more.
The AI Alliance says that they plan to create a governing board and a technical oversight committee to progress in areas like AI trust infrastructure, and open-source models.
Who’s in this thing?
Members include Meta, IBM, AMD, Intel, NASA, Stability AI, Hugging Face and more. It also includes several top Universities like Cornell, Berkeley, Yale, UT Austin, and more.
Isn’t there already a Partnership on AI?
There is. The Partnership on AI is also a member of the AI Alliance.
Isn’t the Center for AI Safety also a thing?
Yes. They are not in the AI Alliance.
Some people who signed the Center for AI Safety’s Statement on AI Risk include the CEOs of OpenAI, Anthropic, Google DeepMind, and the Co-Founders of xAI.
So is OpenAI, Anthropic, DeepMind, or xAI in the AI Alliance?
No, they’re not.
For the complete list of who signed the Statement on AI Risk back in June, check out this previous issue of Bot Eat Brain:
FROM OUR PARTNERS
This painting sold for $8 million and everyday investors profited.
When the painting by master Claude Monet (you may have heard of him) was bought for $6.8 million and sold for a cool $8 million just 631 days later, investors in shares of the offering received their share of the net proceeds.
All thanks to Masterworks, the award-winning platform for investing in blue-chip art. Masterworks does all the heavy lifting like finding the painting, buying it, storing it, and eventually selling it.
In just the last few years, its investors have realized annualized net returns of 17.8%, 21.5%, 35% and more.
Shares of offerings can sell out in just minutes, but Bot Eat Brain readers can skip the waitlist to join with this exclusive link.

Don’t sell your music studio yet 🤖 🎷
In July, we covered Google’s “Viola the Bird.” It was an AI experiment that used your mouse movements to produce realistic stringed performances.
Yesterday, Google launched its Instrument Playground. It’s an AI that generates 20-second music tracks using text prompts.
Here’s us messing with it:
Is it any good?
Google claims it can emulate more than 100 global instruments. It does common instruments like the piano and unique instruments like the Chinese dizi, a traditional flute.
How does it work?
You put in a text prompt of the sound you want. You can influence the music’s mood by adding adjectives to the prompts like funky, merry, spooky, and more.
Then you can interact with the AI on its website, choose different instruments to work with, and edit tracks with its basic on-screen keyboard.
Can I create a song on it?
Eh. There’s an “Advanced” mode that Google claims is for musicians that allows you to sequence four different AI-generated instruments into one song. You can then download your .wav file after creating a track.
It’s more like a digital toy than a professional tool. 🧸
Can anyone use it?
Yes, it’s free.
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA
Bing cut out carbs and hit the gym 🏋️♂️ 💪
In October, we reported DALL-E 3’s integration into Bing Chat. This meant you could generate images directly from Bing Search.
Yesterday, Microsoft announced Deep Search. It allegedly enhances Bing’s ability to provide detailed answers to complex search queries.
What is it?
It’s a new feature powered by GPT-4 that generates more relevant search results in Bing Search.
Microsoft claims it allows for deeper web exploration, providing detailed descriptions based on the intent of your search.
Why would I ever use this?
Microsoft claims it delivers detailed summaries based on multiple different search results and could potentially save you time.
I like saving time. Thanks, Microsoft.
Eh, it said that it could take up to 30 seconds to deliver results. So it might not save you any time at all for most searches.
It could potentially be useful if you were comparing different products and didn’t have the time to read multiple different articles.
