Artificial intelligence is rapidly advancing in health care and all facets of business and life. Here are the latest developments:

Who needs Yoko Ono to ruin The Beatles when you have AI?

The Beatles have released a new song powered by AI. Taking a John Lennon home demo tape from 1970, AI was used to isolate Lennon’s vocals and the instruments to make the new version. Peter Jackson, director of the 2021 documentary, “The Beatles: Get Back,” will most likely make a 16-hour, seven-part film series chronicling the five-minute process.

Elon Musk to release a non-politically correct AI tool

Elon Musk, notorious billionaire and the person who single-handedly ruined Twitter for the rest of us, is launching his own AI program called xAI. Musk says he started the company because he was afraid that current AI tools were being too politically correct. For those interested in racist, misogynist, and hate-filled information, xAI launches Saturday. Or, to save time, just turn your Twitter feed back on.

Finally, a way to identify individual geese faces!

With geese proliferating across the planet, one of the most common problems people rank toward the top of any “must solve” list is how to identify individual geese. TSA agents often complain that it’s almost impossible to tell one goose in the mile-long screening line from another, slowing down travelers trying to catch flights as they try to match a goose face to its ID. Fear not, artificial intelligence has a solution. Thanks to goose recognition software, you can now identify a goose with 97% accuracy. Air travel will be even safer once this is rolled out across the country.

AI is helping hackers break into your practice

Hackers, not wanting to be left out of the AI bonanza, now have FraudGPT, a program that can help them craft messages more likely to be clicked on by unwary employees. But don’t worry, since all the frontline employees were replaced with chatbots, the AI-powered entities can compare notes with the fraud-bot about what it’s like to work for jerk humans.

Virtual doctors say AI must have principles

The American Telemedicine Association published its “principles of AI,” outlining the rules artificial intelligence should follow when used in a telehealth setting. No word on whether AI helped craft the guidelines.
