🤔 What It Means to Be Alive in the Age of AI: Are We Redefining Existence?

🔮 Purple Horizons Dispatch

Hey there Explorers!

This week, we're diving into stories that push the boundaries of art, friendship, and human ingenuity. And we’re starting to question what’s really possible in an AI-powered world.

From Randy Travis reclaiming his voice with AI's help to teens finding true friendship in chatbots and coders wrestling with AI's growing independence—it's all changing the game in unimaginable ways.

Here’s what’s going on…

🗞️ TECH & TRENDS | News & More

🎤 He got his voice back thanks to AI | For the first time since a 2013 stroke left country singer Randy Travis unable to speak or sing properly, he has released a new song, thanks to a Warner Music AI experiment.

🤷🏼‍♂️ Heads up… Your kid’s new BFF may be an AI bot | Teens are opening up to AI chatbots as a way to explore friendship. But sometimes, the AI’s advice can go too far.

📸 So, ”Is it Photography or 'Promptography'? | One of the things that people would say about photography when it first took off in the 1840s and 50s is that it can never be art because the machine is making the image. And now, 185 years later, with the emergence of AI, some are wondering if photography is dead. But is it really???

☠️ Code No Mo'? | Are we witnessing the endgame for traditional programming as AI starts coding itself? Will coding become just another cog in the industrial machine? Or can businesses foster an environment that still values craftsmanship? The rise of AI coding is raising A LOT of questions

To share or not to share? That is the question | OpenAI will release a Media Manager tool in 2025, that will allow creators to control which of their content can be used to train AI models. How will creators use this? And will creators who opt out be hurt in the process? That’s the million-dollar question.

🧠 Human mind > AI | AI has become so advanced it's more interesting to examine the things it can’t do. Despite AI's world-bending abilities, machines still pale in comparison to the human mind on a whole bunch of tasks. It looks like the human mind still has an edge—for now, at least.

🤔 DEEP THOUGHTS | Exploring the Future

In the same way that there are currently debates on what gender means today, do you think we’ll start questioning what it actually means to be ‘alive’ or ‘human’ as AI and robotics keep evolving?

Consider this: as AI and robotics progress, could concepts like consciousness and autonomy become the next major points of contention?
