Google says that AI-written content, such as those written by GPT-3, fall under the category of auto-generated content and are considered spam
Heyday was live on Product Hunt last week and we finished as the #1 Product of the Day!
In case you haven’t checked it out yet, it is a browser extension that uses machine learning to automatically organize your research. If you’re the type of person with 100+ tabs open, Heyday can help.
We’d love to hear your feedback on it! Reply to this email or DM me if you have any thoughts on our launch or how we can make Heyday a better fit for you!
Awesome, not awesome.
“A new form of artificial intelligence may be able to predict with more accuracy than a doctor if and when a person will die from cardiac arrest.
In a new studyTrusted Source, researchers from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland say artificial intelligence (AI) called Survival Study of Cardiac Arrhythmia Risk (SSCAR) might revolutionize how clinical decisions are made in the field of cardiology.” - Elizabeth Pratt, Author Learn More from Healthline >
“In 2017, TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, scraped short-form videos, usernames, profile pictures, and profile descriptions from Instagram, Snapchat, and other sources and then uploaded them — without users’ knowledge or consent — to Flipagram, a TikTok predecessor, according to four former employees of the company.
The former employees do not know when the scraping they say they were aware of stopped. Two of them say that the scraped content was used to train ByteDance’s powerful “For You” personalization algorithm on US-based content so that it would better reflect the preferences of US users. Today, the “For You” algorithm powers both TikTok and its Chinese equivalent, Douyin.” - Emily Baker-White, Senior Technology Reporter Learn More from BuzzFeed News >
