  • 🔍️ Instagram is getting AI-powered search

  • 🫠 Adobe’s ‘Ethical’ Firefly AI Was Trained on Midjourney Images

  • 🤌 + new AI Tools, Resources, and other news

Ready, Set, Go: Today’s read should be about a 3 minute read.


Meta is going big on AI yet again! They are slowly adding AI to all their products (WhatsApp, Insta, Facebook), but today let’s talk about Instagram.

They are testing more AI features on Instagram to help users find new reels, posts, or ask questions.

How it works:

The search query in the search bar leads you to a conversation in DM with Meta AI, where you can ask questions or use one of the pre-loaded prompts.

For instance, a video on Threads posted by a user indicates that you can tap on a prompt like “Beautiful Maui sunset Reels” to search for reels related to that topic. This will lead to easy discoverability of contents, significantly saving us time.

Image Credit: Adobe and Midjourney

Adobe markets its AI image generator Firefly as ethical, primarily using images from its own licensed Adobe Stock library.

However, a Bloomberg report suggests flaws in this image, revealing that some training data might have originated from unverified sources, including competitor Midjourney.

Why is this such a big deal?

When Adobe first launched Firefly, it offered an indemnity against copyright theft claims for its enterprise customers as a way to convince them it was safe.

The sense was that any image made with Firefly was safe to use without the risk of being sued for copyright theft.
