Weekly Scheduling for All

Prompt: Create a healthy weekly schedule for someone who works five days per week 8am-5pm, and enjoys yoga, walks, and home workouts. I don’t need help planning my work time.

You can adapt the prompt to your specific needs. For example, switch out your work hours if you’re on the night shift, or explain to the model that you don’t enjoy working out in the mornings (or evenings). You can also share more guidelines such as how many hours per week you’d like to be active.

AI could help you start your next vacation without a hitch

When you picture yourself on vacation, you might imagine exploring a new city or soaking up the sun. The truth is there’s a lot that has to happen beforehand to make it all come together, from booking your hotel to getting through airport security. Those logistical hurdles can cause headaches even before you leave: Try staying positive, for instance, after a chunk of your hard-earned vacation time gets wasted taxiing on the runway.

The airline and hospitality industries have struggled to keep customers happy over the past few years, but many are now turning to AI for help. American Airlines has an AI tool called Smart Gating that can anticipate which gates will be free at different points of departure. It’s already saved passengers about 17 hours of taxi time each day. Another AI tool notifies airline staff about delayed connecting flights so that those passengers won’t get stranded at the airport.

AI can also keep passengers informed about delays and other important updates in real-time, too. That’s important, experts say, because it can help reduce the frustration some fliers feel when they don’t know what’s going on. Other startups want to help make planning your trip less of a hassle. One company, Mindtrip, now offers a “travel quiz” designed to match you up with your ideal vacation destination.

There are still some kinks to work out: AI chatbots can give passengers incorrect information. And they can be another barrier between you and a real-life human — a big issue if you’re trying to solve a more pressing, complicated issue. At the same time, AI might free up more employees so that they can prioritize those tricky travel scenarios.

From The Frontier

“A large portion of business problems are constrained by how much time any given problem takes to solve and the number of people you have to solve it. AI flips this by creating a world where we can solve problems by essentially throwing more compute at them.“

— Aaron Levie, CEO of Box


The biggest drivers and barriers to AI adoption

Source: IBM Global AI Adoption Index 2023/Wall Street Journal

Among companies that use AI, 45% say they were motivated to implement it because technological advances have made models more accessible. More than four in ten say they’ve started using AI models to help reduce costs and automate important processes.

There are still some major barriers that have prevented some companies from using AI as much as they’d like. A third of respondents say their companies’ limited AI skills, expertise or knowledge have prevented them from fully adopting AI models. A quarter say their data is too complex right now for AI to be able to analyze it, and 23% say they have ethical concerns about using LLMs.


Parrot Portraits

Prompt: Create a dark, moody-style 3D wallpaper featuring a colorful parrot sitting on a moss-covered rock in a jungle environment. The parrot should have a [insert color] base color with a few [insert other color]feathers like a macaw parrot. Ensure the parrot is detailed, vibrant, and sharply in focus, with sunlight filtering through the jungle canopy from above, illuminating the scene. The background should be filled with lush jungle foliage, adding depth and atmosphere to the moody aesthetic. The image should be suitable for a vertical wallpaper.
