Security Concerns Over ChatGPT Prompt Injection Attack

OpenAI’s language model, ChatGPT, has been found to be vulnerable to a type of attack known as “prompt injection”. This attack allows malicious actors to manipulate the model’s output by injecting specific prompts into the conversation. OpenAI has acknowledged the issue and is working on a mitigation strategy. The company has also urged users to report any instances of this attack. Despite the security concern, OpenAI maintains that the benefits of AI and machine learning outweigh the risks, and is committed to improving the safety and security of its models.1

AI Tool Generates Video from Brain Activity

Researchers at the National University of Singapore and the Chinese University of Hong Kong have developed an AI tool that can generate videos from brain activity. The tool uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data and a deep learning model to create high-quality videos. This technology could potentially be used in neuroscience and brain-computer interfaces. The researchers have achieved an accuracy rate of 85% in their video reconstructions, indicating promising potential for future applications.2

AI Tools Revolutionize Photo Editing

New AI tools, such as DragGAN and Stability AI, are transforming the field of photo editing. These tools use generative artificial intelligence to manipulate photos in ways that were previously impossible without extensive editing experience. For instance, DragGAN allows users to alter images radically, from changing facial expressions to modifying the layout of a landscape. Stability AI’s upscaler can quadruple the resolution of an image without compromising its sharpness. These advancements are rendering traditional editing tools like Photoshop obsolete.3

Adobe’s Photoshop Unveils Generative AI Tool
