Let's jump in!


In our first email newsletter that we shared in the first days of the year, we talked about what kind of developments are expected on the AI side in 2024 like how AI is reshaping white-collar roles, with a focus on enhancing productivity and enabling new capabilities in knowledge-based and creative fields.

  • Key points included:
    • AI's role in enhancing productivity in knowledge-based fields.
    • The emerging trend of in-house AI solutions to counter GPU shortages.
    • The rise of actionable AI agents beyond traditional chatbots.
    • The urgent need for regulation with the advent of deepfake technology.

The Intersection of AI and Marketing

In our second issue, we explored AI’s growing but nuanced role in marketing.

  • Key Point: Despite AI's increasing use, there's not a major increase in AI-specific job requirements in marketing.

      This suggests a complex blend of AI tools and human creativity at play.

Art and AI: A Delicate Dance

We also touched upon the ethical aspect of AI in the art world.

  • Highlight: Kin Art's initiative aims to protect artists from AI exploitation.

      This reflects the need for ethical balance in technological advancement.

GDPR and AI - Navigating Data Privacy

Our focus at social media was on the critical role of GDPR in AI development.

Novus’s Adventures at CES 2024

Our co-founders represented Novus at CES 2024, a major tech event where AI technologies took center stage.

AI’s Predictive Power and Ethical Implications

At CES 2024 many AI tools were unveiled for the first time. Among them were some pretty interesting ones, one of them being SK's AI Fortune Teller.

  • Key Point: Powered by high-bandwidth memory technology, it claims that it can tell users’ their fortune by reading their emotions.
    • The machine snaps a photo of your face and asks you to select a card from an on-screen deck.
    • Within moments, the AI analyzes facial characteristics and produces an Tarot card-like print with a short, future-looking message or piece of advice
