OpenAI unveils DALL-E 3

PLUS: GitHub Copilot Chat is here


Good morning, human brains. Welcome back to your daily munch of AI news.

Here’s what’s on the menu today:

  • Amazon updates Alexa’s AI 🦾 🤖

    Its new LLM allows more natural conversation and advanced processing.

  • OpenAI unveils DALL-E 3 🔥

    Its latest GPT-powered text-to-image tool.

  • GitHub Copilot Chat is here 💻 🤓

    Copilot Chat Beta is now available for individual users.


Amazon’s Alexa AI update 🦾 🤖

Amazon announced Alexa’s new update. It features a shiny, new LLM for more “natural” conversations.

We sure hope so.

What’s up:

1/ Alexa’s new AI model emphasizes controlling smart home devices and delivering real-time information.

2/ The upgrade improves conversational responses, contextual awareness, and multi-command processing.

3/ You can use casual phrases like “I’m cold,” and Alexa will adjust the thermostat.

4/ Amazon also unveiled AI developer tools that allow Alexa to understand custom commands for third-party products.

Our take: It’s about time Alexa got an update, but the AI developer tools could make Alexa a lot more useful.

You could link it to your favorite niche app, like a plant care app. “Alexa, when should I water my succulents next?”



Originally released in January 2021, DALL-E is an AI model developed by OpenAI that generates original images from textual descriptions. Using advanced neural network techniques, it can create a wide range of visual representations based on user-provided text prompts.

OpenAI’s new GPT-powered DALL-E 3 🔥

OpenAI unveiled DALL-E 3its latest text-to-image generation tool built atop ChatGPT.

Fat stacks.

Better, faster, stronger:

1/ DALL-E 3 produces images that more closely align with text descriptions than previous models.

2/ It generates images with embedded text and accurately rendered elements.

Like hands?

3/ It’s built atop ChatGPT, which allows you to refine text prompts before inputting them into DALL-E 3.

4/ It’s in “research preview” for select customers and will be available to ChatGPT Plus and Enterprise users in October.

Our take: Seamless wording and elements, like hands, have been lacking in image-generation tools since they were introduced. Whether this lives up to its promises or not, we’ll have to see.

We’ll keep our eyes on this.


GitHub Copilot Chat is here 💻 🤓

GitHub expanded beta access for Copilot Chat to all Copilot users. Since July, Copilot Chat was only available for its business clients.

Juicy details:

1/ GitHub introduces natural language as a new universal programming medium, reducing the need for boilerplate code.

2/ Copilot Chat is now free and compatible with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.

3/ It provides coding assistance, real-time guidance, code analysis, and troubleshooting options.

Our take: GitHub claims this will minimize context switching, a major productivity killer. This would allow developers to remain in their IDE (integrated development environment) and get more stuff done.

Will it deliver on this promise? Time will tell.
