NEW RELEASE

🧠 Dropbox’s new AI-powered features are now in open beta

Dropbox has taken another leap forward by enhancing its AI feature that was introduced in June. Initially designed to use generative AI to provide answers and summarize lengthy documents or audio recordings, the platform has now further streamlined the user experience.

Dropbox Dash emerges as a universal search tool powered by artificial intelligence, aiming to simplify the often-chaotic digital work environment. Rather than navigating through multiple apps and tabs, Dash provides a unified platform where one can search across various tools including Google Workspace, Microsoft Outlook, Salesforce, and Notion, to name a few.

Instead of the usual hopping from one app to another, just pop a question into Dash, and it'll pull together relevant information from all your connected platforms, streamlining your tasks. But Dash's capabilities don't stop at apps. You can swiftly sift through the content of your entire desktop, including those myriad browser tabs, calendar entries, emails, and more.

The vision behind Dash seems clear: offering a consolidated view of your day, guiding you through meetings, required files, and project priorities, all from a singular, easy-to-access tab.

AI VIDEO EDITING

🪄 Adobe previews AI upscaling to make old, fuzzy videos and GIFs look fresh

Adobe recently previewed an experimental tool powered by artificial intelligence that has the capability to upscale low-resolution videos and GIFs, making them appear clearer and sharper.

Named "Project Res-Up", this tool employs diffusion-based upsampling technology, a kind of generative AI that creates new data based on what it has learned from previous data.

Demonstrations of the tool in action are quite impressive. One instance showcased an old clip from the film "The Red House" being upscaled by a whopping 675%, resulting in enhanced sharpness and added details like individual hair strands. Another demonstration focused on a video clip of a baby elephant. The tool not only improved the video's resolution but also added minute details such as skin wrinkles.

While the tool isn't available to the public yet, its demonstrations hint at a future where reviving old video content is not just possible, but can yield impressive results. This could redefine the way we interact with older media.

🏫️ High schools in Denmark are embracing ChatGPT as a teaching tool instead of banning it

AI chatbots have experienced a surge in popularity in the education sector, causing concerns over cheating. However, Mette Mølgaard Pedersen, an English teacher at Horsens Gymnasium in Denmark, took a novel approach.

According to EuroNews, instead of blocking the use of these chatbots, she chose to integrate them into the learning process. Pedersen felt that when students haphazardly use AI without understanding, it hinders genuine learning, so she sought to transform the AI from a hindrance to a beneficial learning tool.

To promote this innovative use, five Danish high schools, including Pedersen's, have begun a two-year project allowing ChatGPT's use in classes. Students, initially skeptical, now see its potential not just as a shortcut, but as a learning asset.

Pedersen's perspective emphasizes teaching over stringent monitoring, urging educators to recognize the unstoppable evolution of AI tools and to harness their potential instead of resisting them.
