  • 🤗 TikTok’s Virtual Influencers

  • 🎵 New AI tool lets you generate 1200 songs for free

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

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


According to a report by The Verge, TikTok is developing an AI technology to generate virtual influencers that would appear in videos to promote and sell products for advertisers.

This could change how products are advertised on the site, but it's still being developed, and it's not clear yet if they'll be as effective as human influencers.

From the perspective of the existing creators on the platform, this could pose a major threat to their revenue generation. TikTok's also recently shut down its $1 billion creator fund.


This is the easiest way to create AI chatbots for your business.

Chatling lets you build AI chatbots visually using their drag-and-drop interface and deploy them on any website in less than 15 minutes.

  • Train it on your data, such as your website, knowledge base, and documents, and let the AI automatically handle conversations with your users.

  • It automates customer support, onboarding, lead generation, and sales.

Not only this, but the AI is multilingual, with support for over 85 languages. This means you can reach and engage with your global customer base effectively.

The best part? No coding or AI expertise is needed.

On Wednesday, after months in closed beta, Udio got its public launch, enabling anyone to access the new music generator from the Udio website.

Users can create up to 1200 songs a month for free, choosing genres and styles with text. The AI handles a wide range of music and vocals that sound incredibly realistic and even emotional.

Udio will directly compete with other music generators like Google's MusicFX, Stability AI's Stable Audio, and Suno AI. Wow, it looks like 2024 is the year for AI music as well.
