🔮 Purple Horizons Dispatch

Hey there Explorers!

This week, we're zooming straight into the heart of futuristic tech that's reshaping our world in real-time. From the groundbreaking unveiling of GPT-4o that’s setting new benchmarks in AI, to deepfake scams that are a little too close for comfort, we’ve got it covered.

We’re also taking a peek at Microsoft’s super-secret, internet-free AI chatbot for spies, a new brain-reading device, and exploring how an old-school cool brand like Levi's is weaving tech into fabric. Plus, we dive into the potential revolution in healthcare with 3D-printed 'polypills.'

It's a pretty wild ride through the latest in tech—here’s what’s going on…

🤯 Prepare to have your mind blown | OpenAI dropped their Spring update on us earlier this week and introduced GPT-4o. To say the demos were mindblowing would be an understatement! It’s faster, has more emotion, enhanced vision, and contextual awareness — and that’s just scratching the surface. People are already using it to do incredible things, too. We’re heading into the future faster than we ever have. The question is, are we ready? Is your business ready? Things are about to get interesting…

🚫🔌 If it’s not on the internet, does it even exist??? | Microsoft launched covert AI chatbot for US intel agencies that is completely “isolated from the internet” to avoid data breaches or hacking attempts, making this the first time a large language model (LLM) has been developed that is completely unplugged from the internet.

👖 Is that a lot of tech in your jeans, or are you just happy to see me? | Levi’s has stitched AI (and a whole lot of tech) into making its iconic jeans. That is pretty impressive for a 171-year old company!

💊 If you could take a magic pill… | A team of researchers believes 3D-printed “polypills” that combine various medications and dosages into a single pill could help reduce medication errors, simplify medical routines, and kickstart a wave of “next-generation personalized medicines.”

🧠 Really, it knows what you’re thinking | Scientists have created a brain-reading device that deciphers your internal thoughts with surprising precision. This gives a whole new meaning to “Did you really say that out loud?
