We’re here to make that Monday, a tad bit bearable.
Warning! Stop talking about your boss behind their back… AI is listening.
Also, it’s the chip war of the century! Doritos vs…
No, I’m just kidding, it’s about Nvidia of course.
AND We’ve got some great tools that might come in handy!
We want to give a big shoutout to our sponsor, guidde! Thanks to their AI-powered solution, creating documentation has never been easier!
Picture this: you're shooting messages back and forth on Slack or Zoom, and little do you know, AI might be taking notes.
Well, Walmart, Delta Air Lines, and Starbucks are turning to a startup called Aware to keep tabs on what's being said among their teams.
This Ohio-based company's AI analyses the chatter, giving executives a heads-up on how employees feel, instead of relying on the old-school yearly surveys.
Bullies are in trouble…
Aware's AI isn't just listening in for general gossip.
It's trained to pick up on serious misdemeanours like bullying, harassment, or even more... adult topics.
Now, before you start feeling like you're in a sci-fi flick, let's clear some things up.
Aware says it's not about spying on individual employees; it's more about understanding overall trends and keeping an eye out for any red flags.
But people aren't too thrilled about this new tech.
They worry it could lead to a bit of a "thought police" situation, where what you say at work is under a microscope.
And let's not forget about privacy – even if data's anonymised, there's still a chance someone could figure out who's who.
So, what's the bottom line?
Well, companies are increasingly using AI to keep an eye on their workers.
While it might help them spot potential issues early on, it's also raising some big questions about privacy.
We'll just have to keep an eye on how this all plays out - maybe new laws will make this illegal.
Well, if the AI is tuning into our office gossip, at least it's getting a crash course in human drama – better pop some popcorn for that!

Nvidia, the chip leader in AI, is diving into custom chip design for cloud computing and beyond.
With 80% of the high-end AI chip market under its belt, Nvidia's move aims to meet the rising demand for specialised AI chips while fending off competitors.
The race is on
But as tech giants want tailor-made solutions, Nvidia is trying to help craft bespoke chips, with better performance and lower costs.
Prices for Nvidia's AI chips range from $16,000 to $100,000, and Meta is planning a massive purchase of 350,000 of them.
Nvidia is also in talks with major players like Amazon and Google for custom chip development.
Shaking up the market
The potential market for custom chips is huge, aiming to hit $10 billion by 2025.
Nvidia's entry into this space could shake up the dominance of current players like Broadcom and Marvell.
Talks with Ericsson for wireless chip collaboration and plans for growth in the automotive and gaming sectors show Nvidia's ambitions to become as large as Microsoft and Apple.
