Researchers at Microsoft have developed VASA-1, an AI that produces realistic talking face videos from a single static image and audio clip. While impressively realistic, the technology, which can animate photos or artwork with life-like facial expressions synchronized with audio, still shows signs of being AI-generated on closer inspection. Demonstrations include a rapping Mona Lisa and other figures delivering speeches or songs. VASA-1, not yet released for public use, could be used to create lifelike avatars that emulate human conversational behaviors, but the team is cautious of misuse.

Meta has unveiled Llama 3, the latest upgrade to its open-source LLM. Featuring two models with 8B and 70B parameters, Llama 3 offers enhanced reasoning, code generation and instruction-following capabilities and, if you take Meta’s PR as fact, is “the most capable openly available LLM to date.” Llama 3 was pre-trained on over 15 trillion tokens collected from publicly available sources, which is 7 times larger than the one used to train Llama 2. Meta has also integrated its AI chatbot, powered by Llama 3, into the search bars of its major apps (Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp) across multiple countries.

Most U.S. business leaders are concerned about data privacy and security when it comes to using Generative AI. A survey of 300 US GenAI strategy or data analytics decision makers, sponsored by SAS, shows that despite enthusiasm for GenAI’s potential to boost productivity, 80% of business leaders are concerned about data privacy and security issues, 10% feel prepared for regulatory compliance, and 93% lack a comprehensive governance framework for GenAI. The survey identified gaps in preparedness in four key areas of implementation:

1. Increasing trust in data usage and achieving compliance
2. Integrating GenAI into existing systems and processes
3. Finding enough GenAI talent
4. Predicting costs

The study underscores the need for identifying high-value use cases to deliver sustainable and scalable solutions.

New research indicates that GPT-4 can autonomously exploit real-world security vulnerabilities when presented with CVE advisories (publicly disclosed computer security flaws). This capability surpasses several other LLMs and open-source vulnerability scanners in testing. While the paper acknowledges a limited dataset of 15 CVE advisories, GPT-4 showed proficiency in exploiting 87% of them, a stark contrast to the 0% success rate of competing models and scanners evaluated.
