PLUS: Data scraping sickens you? Return the favor.
Good morning, human brains, and welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.
Here’s what’s on the menu today:
Achieve cybernetic telepathy. Sort of. 🤖 🧠
Neuralink successfully implanted a chip into a human’s brain.
GPTs in the air. GPTs everywhere. 👫 ❤️
You can now use multiple GPTs in a single chat window.
Data scraping sickens you? Return the favor. ☠️ 🤮

Bot in Brain 🤖 🧠
Back in May, we reported on Neuralink’s FDA approval. It was cleared to begin testing its brain-computer interface on humans.
In July, we covered xAI’s Live Twitter event. Elon Musk announced that xAI would collaborate with Tesla, use Twitter data for training, and more.
In November, we reported on Grok. It’s xAI’s LLM that uses real-time world knowledge to answer questions, assist with coding, and more.
Elon, Elon, Elon…
On Sunday, Neuralink successfully implanted a chip in a human’s brain. Elon Musk announced he is recovering well, and the results are promising.
They put a computer in a dude’s brain?
Yes, the aim is to restore limb movement for people with quadriplegia, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and more.
How does it work?
It’s a brain implant called Telepathy that allows you to communicate and interact with your phone, computer, robotic limbs, and other digital platforms by using your neural signals.
Sweet, when can I get one?
Much more testing is required. Neuralink hasn’t disclosed how many people will be initially tested or when it will be available to the public.

Get your GPTs to talk to your GPTs 👫 ❤️
Two weeks ago, we reported on OpenAI’s GPT Store launch. We made a step-by-step guide on how to access it, find new GPTs, share your own, and more.
On Tuesday, we covered OpenAI’s new models and updates. It announced two new text embedding models, discounted API access, and more.
Please. Later that day, OpenAI added the ability to use GPTs directly in chat. This allows you to use any GPT in your conversations with a push of a button.
How does it work?
All you have to do is type “@” and select any GPT you want to use.
When would I use this?
The coolest thing you can do is use multiple GPT in a single window. They can refer to each other’s responses, integrate their abilities, debate with each other, and more.
Can anyone use it?
You have to be a paid user to get access to this feature.
Let me guess, I have to wait?
Nope, OpenAI is beta testing it now. We tested it, and it’s working for us now:
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA
Don’t you know that you’re toxic? ☠️ 🤮
Back in October, we reported on the University of Chicago’s Nightshade. It’s an image data tool that “poisons” images scraped by text-to-image models.
Since its release on January 18, Nightshade received over 250,000 downloads. Ben Zhao, the project’s leader, claimed it hit this number in just 5 days.
What is Nightshade, anyway?
It “poisons” your images subtly by slightly modifying them once uploaded online. This makes it potentially harmful for AI models if scraped and used for training without consent.
Who would use this?
Artists all over the world have downloaded Nightshade to protect their works.
So, a lot of people downloaded it?
Yes. So many that it caused server overloads, and the University of Chicago had to add mirror download links to keep up.
It’s University of Chicago’s previous tool that received over 2.2 million downloads since its release in April. Artists are advised to use Glaze first, then Nightshade for maximum protection.
