Hey there fellow explorers!
This week, we’re knee-deep in the middle of Tech Basel in Miami and have loved hanging out with some amazing tech entrepreneurs, investors, strategists, and friends! The stuff that’s being built right now is mind-blowingly good! 🤯 All we can say is that the future of tech is bright!
Speaking of the future, with things moving so fast and technology getting so good, it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish what’s real and what isn’t. Will this open new opportunities for real human interaction or verification in the future? More on that in today’s dispatch. We also dive into some cool AI image/video tools, a new AI social network we’re experimenting with, and other great resources.
Finally, we’ve got exciting plans for the new year for Purple Horizons so stay tuned for more info soon!
Here’s what’s going on…

🥸 That motherf*@3r is not real! There’s a really good chance your soon-to-be favorite influencer will be an AI. Like this one that’s making $11K a month! But that’s just the beginning. Alibaba is about to level up the AI influencer space with the ability to animate anyone. I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Tiffany Gomas soon…
🖼️ Wait! What?!?!? Microsoft Paint is still a thing? It sure is, and thanks to the Copilot feature in Windows 11 it’s getting a MAJOR AI upgrade.

🧰 THERE’S AN AI FOR THAT | Photo & Video Edition
We’ve all heard of Midjourney, DALL-E, and maybe Stable Diffusion. But they’re not the only game in town. Here are some awesome AI photo and video tools that will have your friends wondering if you’ve become a visual pro!

🧪 WE’RE EXPERIMENTING | Cool Stuff
Last week, we discovered a cool new social media app called Airchat. Think of it as a mix of all the best elements of TikTok, Clubhouse, and Instagram with a dash of generative AI. (Naval is one of the entrepreneurs behind it)
In typical Explorer fashion, we dove right in and started experimenting… The verdict so far? We really dig it!
📺 PIXEL PICKS | Watch This
All the cool kids are talking about LLMs… And it’s no surprise since large language models are the foundation for most AIs. Get up to speed on everything you need to know to be part of the “in crowd”. Here’s an in-depth guide to large language models and how they work presented by Andrej Karpathy, former Sr. Director of AI at Tesla, and one of the founding members of OpenAI
🤣 OLD SCHOOL COMMERCIAL | LOL!
We’ve always been early adopters, so we get a warm and fuzzy feeling whenever we come across old tech commercial videos like this Radio Shack cell phone commercial (Pricing hasn’t changed much, huh?😂)
