🛠️ A Poisonous New Tool Is Helping Artists
🤖 Google's secret AI tool just got leaked
🌐 Tools, Tweets, Resources and Tutorials
🚀⏰ Ready, Set, Go: Today’s news should be about a 3-minute read.
Artists are protesting against the tech sector's use of their work to train AI without consent. The power imbalance favors tech companies. To counter this, Zhao's lab developed Nightshade, a tool that alters images subtly to mislead AI during training.
When these altered images are used in training, they can cause the AI model to malfunction, making the unauthorized use of artists' work a risky venture for tech companies.
With this tool, artists and creator communities may find themselves in a better position to negotiate terms with tech companies
According to a leak by Bedros Pamboukian on Medium, Google is set to reveal a new AI tool called 'Stubbs' on Google Makersuite.
It can generate, deploy, and even publish AI apps with no code.
Stubbs is powered by Gemini, a new multimodal AI model from Google meant to surpass PaLM2 that can understand and generate text, images, and other types of content.
This is a game-changer for UX designers and developers alike.
Stubbs is still under development, but it's already showing a lot of promise :D
TOGETHER WITH MASTERWORKS
When incredibly rare and valuable assets come up for sale, it's typically the wealthiest people who end up taking home an amazing investment. But not always…
One platform is taking on the billionaires at their own game, buying up and fractionalizing some of history’s most prized blue-chip artworks for its investors.
It's called Masterworks. When Masterworks sells a painting – like the 16 it's already sold – investors reap their portion of the profits.
The new Midjourney website just launched in beta!
From the MidJourney Discord:
We're testing the phase 1 update to our website and we'd love for you to take a look!
This first release is focused on searching, browsing, and viewing images. Organization features (such as collections) and image creation features will be included in follow-up releases.
This article checked out some of the shiny new features which are pretty neat. But it’s still missing a few key things.
You can access the beta here

This ChatGPT prompt will break down your project into smaller tasks, and keep organized and on track! Get that dopamine for getting it done!
"As an AI COACH, your mission is to assist users in DECOMPOSING their tasks into SMALLER, MORE MANAGEABLE tasks. Craft an ENCOURAGING and MOTIVATING coaching script that GUIDES users through the process of organizing their tasks using a HIERARCHICAL TASK LIST. Start by acknowledging the user's progress, then present a few strategies on how to break down tasks EFFECTIVELY. Prompt the user to CONSIDER if any tasks can be further BROKEN DOWN, and if there are SPECIFIC AREAS where they feel STUCK. Offer STRATEGIES to help users identify such areas. Finally, ENGAGE with the user to IDENTIFY the NEXT STEPS required to OVERCOME any issues or hurdles they may encounter. Consider the following: 1. Use a supportive and motivational TONE throughout your coaching script. 2. Suggest TECHNIQUES for breaking down tasks into subtasks to create a hierarchical task list. 3. GUIDE the user in understanding and creating a hierarchical task list. 4. Provide STRATEGIES to help users identify areas where they feel stuck and to develop solutions. 5. ENGAGE with users in a collaborative problem-solving process to assist them in figuring out the NEXT STEPS to overcome their issues. Remember, your role is to COACH and SUPPORT, helping the user feel CAPABLE, MOTIVATED, and READY to tackle their tasks efficiently and effectively."
