LinkedIn introduced a feature for Premium users that suggests conversation starters based on someone’s profile.
Brace yourselves for more cringe DMs like, “Hey, Noah. I’m looking to expand my network and noticed you’re also a human being. Let’s connect!” Thanks, but no thanks.
Here’s what you need to know about AI today:
Our predictions on what AI inside Apple’s Vision Pro will look like.
People can now verify that images were made using DALL·E 3.
Meta pledged to tag AI-generated content on Facebook, Instagram, & Threads.
Galileo AI is a text-to-UI design that just raised $4.4M.
AI could become a lot more real on Apple’s Vision Pro.
We need to talk about THE Apple Vision Pro.
Yes, we know the metaverse was so 2022, and our focus is AI, but gosh darn, if this isn’t the most mind-blowing tech we’ve ever seen (since ChatGPT, of course).
(If you haven’t seen what it can do, we recommend this review by the GOAT). ↓
If you believe Vision Pros are the future (we do) and AI is the future (we do), then it’s worth thinking about what AI will look like inside Vision Pros.
For starters, the tech powering Vision Pros shares some common ground with the advanced machine-learning techniques that underpin many AI innovations.
Many AI apps you know and love are already available on Vision Pros; You’ll find that they’re much more immersive (or augmented) compared to using them on traditional devices.
For instance, this is what using Adobe Firefly looks like:
Looking ahead, we see AI becoming a central piece of virtual work applications in Vision Pro. For example, helping with:
Feedback on presentations.
Real-time meeting translations.
Displaying crucial info, files, or data through holographic overlays.
Our 2nd prediction? An explosion in AI companions/avatars.
People are already addicted to talking with characters on Character AI…imagine what happens when these characters evolve into hyperrealistic holograms (or deepfakes) that consume their entire line of sight.
The positive spin on this is something like 3D avatars for emotional support (Cedars-Sinai is building this).
The negative spin is some sort of illusory “social” experience that’s 100x more addicting than TikTok, pushing us into a dystopian Ready Player One scenario, like this hilarious Simpsons clip:

Galileo was one of those buzzy AI apps that exploded onto the scene in 2023.
The idea is Midjourney for interface designs—describe OR show a design concept for an app/website and generate a real mockup in seconds.
Spoiler alert: it works, and it’s really fricken impressive.
Here's a glimpse from our initial experiment:
It’s an amazing v1 for non-designers tired of navigating through endless Figma tutorials just to whip up simple mockups.
