A chatbot to speak to your virtual future self 

Would you make better decisions about investments, your health and life, if you spoke to your 60-year-old self? Researchers at the MIT Media Lab have developed a web-based chat platform that seeks to help users develop more long-term thinking and behavior by strengthening their relationship with a relatable yet virtual version of their future selves, the project’s website explains. According to an overview of the FutureYou project, the conversation with the future self is generated in real-time via a large language model that has been personalized based on a pre-intervention survey assessing user future goals and personal qualities. The personalized generative AI tool cannot predict specific details about a user’s future life but aims to paint a realistic picture of what their future life could be like.

AI call recording coming to iPhone

AI-powered call recordings are making their way to the iPhone, thanks to Apple’s personal intelligence system, Apple Intelligence. Announced at its latest Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in Cupertino, California, Apple says users can now record, transcribe, and summarise audio in the Notes and Phone apps. When a recording is initiated while on a call, participants are automatically notified, and once the call ends, Apple Intelligence will generate a summary to help recall key points.

AI Tracker follows trends and developments in the world of artificial intelligence.
