Hi friends! Tuesday’s here and there’s A LOT to unpack.
If you haven’t heard… Microsoft was hacked.
And, the Google Cloud just teamed up with Rad AI for the collab of the century!
Also, there’s a heist in Renaissance Italy that requires your assistance!
Here’s what’s been happening in the AI world today.
Microsoft suffered a major Russian hack just days after announcing a complete security overhaul, leaving them with egg on their faces.
The same folks who pulled off the SolarWinds attack were responsible.
Last November, these hackers used a password spray attack to get into a “not-so-important” test account.
Senior leadership, cybersecurity personnel, legal entities - they were aiming for the juicy stuff.
The plot twist…
Microsoft only caught wind of this caper last week!
As per them, there shouldn’t be any reason to panic, seeing that their documents and data are safe and sound… supposedly.
Apparently, the hackers didn’t get through and reach customer data or mess with production systems.
This attack comes just after Microsoft's announcement to level up their software security. This was after the Azure cloud got hit.
Bad timing for Microsoft…
According to them, no Microsoft products or services were left vulnerable.
This isn't Microsoft's first rodeo in the cyber battleground…
Even last year, Chinese hackers danced through the clouds to breach US government emails using a nifty Microsoft exploit.
Microsoft is not backing down on these threats.
They're revamping everything – how they design, build, test, and run their software.
When these big tech companies get hacked it makes you wonder if they’re using “Password1” as their passwords…

PRESENTED BY SYBILL
Hey everyone - It’s Adam here! Today I thought I’d go through how I used Sybill, the AI-powered sales tool, to close $20,000 of deals in January!
Sybill is a call recording software, that automatically joins all of my sales calls and every other meeting we have at Mindstream.
We are using an SEO meeting as an example for privacy reasons! Here we can see the Sybill interface - this is not a simple note taker.
Outcome - Summarises the meeting.
Next steps - for each member of the call.
Conversation starters - to remember for your next call.
Interests and pain points for each attendee.
It also tracks how much attention is being paid to the speaker - so you know if your client is truly interested or not.
And Sybill doesn’t stop there, it also plugs all of this information into our CRM Hubspot (or whichever CRM you use!)
Perfect for an admin-phobe like me!
The cherry on the top of the Sybill cake is the AI-follow ups.
Did you know that responding in the first 5 minutes after a sales call is 21x more effective than if you wait 30+ minutes?
Sybill integrates with your email client to automate the follow-ups and send them out immediately, massively increasing your chances of making a sale.
With the power of Sybill, I was able to close over $20,000 of sales in January so far!
What are they doing?
Under this partnership, using nifty tools like MedLM (think of as the healthcare AI superhero) to up its radiology reporting game.
And guess what? Google Cloud becomes Rad AI’s go-to cloud provider, helping them level up their platforms
The game changer here is… you guessed it: generative AI models.
Rad AI aims to auto-generate more of these radiology reports, tailored to each radiologist, saving them time and giving a boost to report quality.
But there’s more…
The partnership lets Rad AI scale up its genAI models, promising more accuracy, personalisation and overall better performance.
According to Doctor Gurson, this collab is a massive leap in their mission to make radiology reporting a breeze, reduce burnout and strengthen patient care.
Radiology and AI - the perfect match
This move aligns with the broader trend of AI revolutionising the radiology scene.
With the sheer volume of imaging data skyrocketing, tools like Rad AI are stepping up to cut down the reporting workload by 90%! That’s HUGE.
More time for patient care and less time wasted on admin.
Aashima Gupta from Google Cloud said that this is a huge impact of generative AI in radiology, aiming to speed up patient treatment with quicker and more accurate diagnoses.
A game-changing healthcare collaboration that will improve outcomes for everybody.
