Musk's AI will be open source, Midjourney suspects that Stability AI is scraping its data

Welcome, AI enthusiasts

Midjourney suspects that Stability AI is scraping its data, and it has now gained the ability to remember faces. Meanwhile, Cohere and Accenture have initiated a collaboration.

In today’s newsletter:

  • Midjourney bans all Stability AI employees over alleged data scraping

  • Midjourney now remembers faces

  • AI-Generated Marilyn Monroe chatbot can hold an extended conversation with ‘realistic emotions’ and expressions, company claims

  • Cohere and Accenture collaborate to accelerate enterprise AI adoption

  • Snowflake partners with Mistral AI to offer Mistral Large model in Snowflake Data Cloud

  • Musk’s AI will be open source, available later this month

What: Midjourney says it has banned Stability AI staffers from using its service, accusing employees at the rival generative AI company of causing a systems outage earlier this month during an attempt to scrape Midjourney’s data.

Key points:

  • 💼 Midjourney banned all Stability AI employees over alleged data scraping.

  • 📉 The ban came after Midjourney experienced a near 24-hour service outage on March 2nd, attributed to 'botnet-like activity' from two Stability AI accounts.

  • 🚫 Midjourney introduced a new policy to ban employees of any company engaging in 'aggressive automation' or causing service outages.

  • 🤔 Stability AI CEO Emad Mostaque is investigating the situation, denying involvement and claiming the outage, if caused by an employee, was unintentional.

Noteworthy: Interesting to see how data is the new gold in the race for AI, and companies might go to the extreme to get it. Last month Google signed a yearly $60M contract with the famous internet forum Reddit to scrape its data to train Gemini.


What: At long last, Midjourney has added a new feature that ensures character consistency, completing the final piece of the puzzle. Why is this significant? Because with this enhancement, you can now use Midjourney for any type of visual content creation. Expect to see a surge in ads generated by Midjourney, as it becomes possible to create a fictional model to showcase a hundred types of t-shirts, or have the same model try out various types of burgers, and so on. You get the picture.
