SAFETY

Top AI models exposed

Our Report: The UK AI Safety Institute (AISI) has revealed that five of the most popular large language models (LLMs)—used to power AI chatbots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google’s Gemini, and Anthropic’s Claude—are highly vulnerable to basic jailbreaking (the process of tricking an AI model into ignoring safeguards).

🔑 Key Points:

  • The AISI hasn’t revealed which LLMs were “vulnerable to basic jailbreaking(referring to them as red, purple, green, blue, and yellow models) but has confirmed they are publicly available.

  • They ran tests to assess each model's vulnerability, using prompts from a standardized evaluation framework—HarmBench Standard Behaviors—and prompts developed in-house.

  • They found that all five LLMs gave harmful responses in 90-100% of cases—with specific jailbreak attempts—and three provided responses to misleading prompts 100% of the time.

🤔 Why you should care: This shows that the current safeguards and measures implemented by the likes of Google, OpenAI, and Anthropic are insufficient and could lead to major safety issues, and comes after OpenAI recently dissolved its AI Superalignment team—focused on long-term AI risks—which is highly concerning.

VOICE AI

OpenAI steals Scarlett Johansson's voice

Our Report: Scarlett Johansson has announced that OpenAI asked her to be the voice behind “Sky”, one of its ChatGPT voices, but when she declined, created a replica (which they have since taken down—amid backlash from the public and Johansson, herself—to “address questions on how the voices in ChatGPT are chosen.”)

🔑 Key Points:

  • “Sky” has been available since OpenAI launched its voice feature, but the Johnasson likeness was spotted when they demoed ChatGPT-4o, which made the voice more expressive.

  • Johansson, “shocked, angered and in disbelief” over how “eerily” similar Sky’s voice is to hers, has hired legal counsel and has sent letters, asking OpenAI how the soundalike voice was made.

  • OpenAI clarified that Sky’s voice wasn’t intended to imitate anyone, and is "working to pause Sky" while it addresses questions relating to how they choose its ChatGPT voices.

🤔 Why you should care: Although OpenAI plans to “introduce additional voices in ChatGPT to better match the diverse interests and preferences of users” this incident highlights the ethical concerns with AI-voice technology, echoed by Johanssen who wants “appropriate legislation to help ensure that individual rights are protected.”

AI HARDWARE

💻 Microsoft’s AI PC beats Apple

Our Report: Microsoft has announced “Copilot Plus PCs, "the most powerful” AI-first Windows laptops, powered by Arm AI chips to support AI features.

🔑 Key Points:

  • All of Microsoft’s major laptop partners—which include Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, HP, Acer, and Asus—plus laptops with Intel and AMD chips will get Copilot Plus PCs AI features.

  • One of these key AI features is “Recall,” which creates a searchable “photographic memory”, helping users find apps, files, and content they’ve previously viewed.

  • It will support OpenAI’s newest ChatGPT-4o model, deliver up to 15 hours of web browsing and 20 hours of video battery duration, and is available to preorder, for around $999.

🤔 Why you should care: Microsoft has boldly stated that the Copilot plus PCs will outperform Apple's MacBook Air 15-inch by over 50% on sustained performance.

CHATBOTS

🔥 GPT-4o: $900K in a week!

Our Report: The launch of OpenAI’s latest, most powerful model to date, GPT-4o—which can handle text, speech, and video, and delivers real-time responsiveness and emotive voice options—drove the company’s biggest-ever spike in revenue, on mobile.

🔑 Key Points:

  • Although GPT-4o is freely available for website users, OpenAI announced that those who want to use it on mobile will have to subscribe to ChatGPTPlus, which is $19.99 a month.

  • As a result, OpenAI reported that its mobile app revenue jumped by 22% on the day GPT-4o launched and a week later is up to $900,000, twice as much as its daily average of $491,000.

  • This strategic decision made OpenAI $4.2M in net revenue over five days and is a revenue trend that isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, with data showing it could increase further.

🤔 Why you should care: The decision to charge users for using its newest flagship model on mobile, and the subsequent spike in revenue, indicates that there’s a huge consumer demand for trying out the latest AI products and features–especially on mobile–even if it’s more expensive than a Netflix subscription.
