LinkedIn introduces a new AI-powered career coach

LinkedIn might not be known for cutting-edge tech innovations, but the truth is it’s been experimenting with LLMs since 2007. The integration makes sense: LinkedIn is owned by Microsoft — one of the major players in the race to reach AGI. 

A lot of the company’s AI systems work behind the scenes to surface relevant content or suggest new professional connections for you. Over the years though, LinkedIn has started putting more AI tools directly into users’ hands. In 2023, it introduced features like AI-powered smart replies and resume assistance. Now, it’s taking it a step further with a slew of new AI-powered additions, although some of them will only be available to Premium users.

The new offerings include:

  • AI coaches modeled after real-life career experts that can give you personalized feedback

  • AI-generated cover letters and resumes that can be fine-tuned to specific jobs

  • Improved search results that make it easier for you to find a particular colleague or company

  • A tool that lets recruiters reach more candidates with AI-generated messages

But how much help is too much? You can now ostensibly write your entire resume and cover letter with LinkedIn’s tools. Some HR departments fear they’ll now need to dig through piles of AI-generated applications just to find a qualified candidate. On the other hand, recruiters are already using AI to screen applicants and conduct virtual interviews. That’s left candidates wondering: Why can’t we beef up our resumes or hone our elevator pitches with the help of AI, too? 

Striking a balance: At this point, a resume or cover letter created entirely with AI probably isn’t enough to land you a job. But AI can help you describe your skills in new ways; catch grammatical mistakes you might have otherwise missed; and give you tips about what’s professional and what’s off-limits during interviews. Those are things that many job-seekers — especially those who can’t afford pricey career coaches — couldn’t access until now.

I have used the following prompt:

“a song about a guy who loves sunset, classical”

  • Wait a few minutes and you’ll get your AI-generated song.

  • You can remix, extend, share, or even download your creation.


Friday Funday - Double Features

You can adapt the prompt to your specific needs. For example, feel free to suggest a particular theme or genre you’d prefer to watch (RomComs, Thrillers, etc…). You can also filter it through your favorite actor or director.

Humanoid robots step into the driver’s seat

If you’re prone to road rage, you’ll want to keep away from the humanoid robot that recently got behind the wheel for an experiment in Japan. Out of precaution, it took the robot driver two minutes to make a simple right turn. Researchers say it’ll need to pass more driving tests before it graduates to trying more advanced maneuvers.

While the approach sounds far from practical, it marks a major step for autonomous driving — in that it’s a completely different way of looking at the field. Today’s autonomous vehicles are powered by internal computers, but they’re prone to errors — from getting stuck in traffic to smashing into their surroundings. Researchers at the University of Tokyo think putting a humanoid robot in the driver’s seat of an ordinary car could work better.

Here’s how it works: 

  • In 2019, the research team designed a robot called Musashi that has joints and muscles just like humans

  • They fed the robot sensor data so that it could learn how to mimic the movements of driving a car

  • Musashi learned to turn the ignition key, press down on the gas and brakes, operate the turning signal, and even obey traffic lights

  • It uses movable “eyes” — a pair of high-resolution cameras — to observe its surroundings and spot pedestrians

What could the future hold? Musashi likely needs a few more years of driving school before it’s ready to get a license. It has trouble keeping a steady speed while driving up hills, for example. But the next step might be to create a more generalized humanoid robot that can take on lots of tasks — something MIT researchers are already working on. We’re not there yet, but one day, Musashi might be able to drive you home from work, then hop out and follow you inside to perform other tasks.

Everything else you need to know today

  • Second Life: Yahoo News is introducing several AI-powered features that appear to have been taken from Artifact, the AI news app it acquired in April from the cofounders of Instagram.

  • Small but Mighty: Stability AI released an open-source image generator called Stable Diffusion 3 medium, which it says is smaller and more efficient but just as capable as rivals’ models.

  • No Contest: Nvidia’s Hopper remains the highest-performing AI chip architecture, according to the industry-leading MLPerf tests. Hopper recently scored highest across nine benchmarks.

😄 One Fun Thing: A jury awarded photographer Miles Astray a bronze medal in the AI-image category of the prestigious 1839 Awards this week. The only problem: Astray’s photo, an optical illusion of a flamingo that appears to have no head, was actually real. He said he was trying to prove that Mother Nature still reigns supreme, but the judges rescinded the award once they realized what had happened.

🧠 Brain Food: Scientists at Harvard University are building a virtual rat that is learning how to move through the world just like a real-life rat. The idea is to peer inside the “brain” of the digital rodent to figure out which parts control bodily movements. The experiment could get us one step closer to understanding how we make quick decisions, like picking up a coffee cup.
