Amazon's Titan AI could change product photography. The tech lets brands generate new images based on their existing photos, swapping out backgrounds or adding in new elements.

Photo experts aren't worried that Amazon's new tool will replace them, saying brands still want the realism and authenticity that live photographers bring.

Still, for advertisers looking to quickly tailor campaigns for different markets, Titan's image-swapping powers could be a cost-effective alternative to setting up multiple shoots.

 PRODUCTION MASTERY

Traditional news outlets are combating the erosion of public trust by humanizing journalism.

As readers increasingly turn to AI-generated news, a disconnect between audience and author has emerged.

To bridge this gap, media organizations are spotlighting journalists through enhanced bylines and bios. Engagement is increasing as readers appreciate the transparency.

The shift to human-centric reporting extends to best-of lists, such as The New York Times’ book recommendations, which now feature editor conversations and behind-the-scenes podcasts.

Trust in modern media must be built on relationships, not just reliable algorithms.

💎 Google's Gemini: GPT-4's Worthy Rival?

Google's Gemini AI is here, and it's not playing second fiddle to OpenAI's GPT-4.

This multi-sensory model—one of Google's biggest leaps in AI—handles text, images, audio, and video, earning it a claim on 30 of 32 benchmark wins against ChatGPT.

While it's still being worked into Google products, like Bard on Pixel 8 Pro, the search giant sees seamless coding as a killer app.

Gemini's also cheaper to run thanks to Google's v5p TPU system. It's not just a model; it's the future of Google's AI agenda, and it’s listening, watching, and learning more than ever.
