The Latest Updates in AI and Alternatives to ChatGPT Plus

Dear Ecom's Genie Subscribers,

In the ever-evolving world of AI, we are thrilled to bring you the latest updates and alternatives that might pique your interest.

Microsoft's Copilot Takes Center Stage:

Microsoft has rolled out Copilot, an AI helper, to over 280 million Teams users this month. This powerful tool offers features like meeting summaries, transcriptions, note-taking, drafting messages in Teams chats, and even cleaning up messy backgrounds for virtual meetings. It's a significant leap in AI integration at the workplace.

The Burning Questions:

As AI at work becomes a reality, questions arise: Will people embrace Copilot? Will companies be willing to invest an extra $30/month/user for Copilot? Early indications are positive, with 77% of users not wanting to give it up and 70% reporting increased productivity. The pathway to access Copilot, however, is a bit convoluted.

ChatGPT Plus Update:

In the aftermath of OpenAI DevDay, ChatGPT Plus faced increased demand and compute costs. While it takes a breather, you can still access GPT-4 through Bing or via Azure's OpenAI service if your business operates within Microsoft. Alternatively, consider exploring Claude, ranked #2 behind GPT-4, and Perplexity, a fast AI search engine, on their $20/month Pro plan.

Around the Scene - Quick Highlights:

- Microsoft's custom AI chip for powering AI models and the open-sourcing of Phi-2.

- The commitment from the US and China to ban AI in autonomous weapons.

- A weekly show on how people are integrating ChatGPT into their day-to-day operations.
