1. The New Age of Artificial Intelligence: ‘‘AMAZON Q’’

ChatGPT is a large language model-based chatbot that OpenAI prodives. Bard is powered by Google. Copilot AI Assistant is developed by Microsoft. Now, Amazon enters the AI chatbot race and announces its own New Intelligent Assistant: ‘‘Amazon Q’’. 


Developed with privacy and security in mind, a new kind of generative AI-powered assistant gives employees the opportunity to use their corporate data and knowledge for everything from answering inquiries and solving issues to creating content and taking action.


Amazon Q offers businesses over 40 pre-installed connectors for popular data sources such as Amazon S3, Dropbox, Confluence, Google Drive, Microsoft 365, Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Zendesk.

2. ‘‘Imagine’’ With Meta AI Image Generator 


Meta has some exciting new releases and features coming out for its customers at the end of the year. 


"Imagine," Meta's new standalone AI imagine generator, is available in the United States at imagine.meta.com as of Wednesday, expanding the service's text-to-image generating capabilities beyond conversations. Built from the ground up using Meta's Emu image foundation concept, the standalone experience targets creative hobbyists.


With this update, users will be able to make their own free online images, which will appeal to a wider audience. This is a huge step forward for Meta's products, giving users more freedom to express themselves beyond just sending messages. 



ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE


3. Cities Are Being Overrun by Visually Realistic CGI Marketing Campaigns 


These computer-generated advertisements (CGIs) have gone viral because they are often entertaining, unusual, and cleverly designed to spread around the world. 


This approach presents challenges and consequences due to the increased production expectations, it creates among design-and-build brands with a focus on physical installations. Although brands do credit the makers, anyone unprepared to verify the claims may assume the ads have more resources, authority, or influence than they really do.


Keep in mind that CGI advertising campaigns are very easily replicated and disseminated without any attribution or background information.

4. Commission's Call: EU Requests Clarification From AliExpress 


In accordance with the Digital Services Act (DSA), the European Commission officially served AliExpress with a request for information last Monday. 


Concerning the spread of illegal products such as fake drugs, the Commission has asked AliExpress for further information on the steps it has taken to meet its responsibilities regarding risk assessments and mitigation strategies to safeguard online shoppers.


According to EU industry chief Thierry Breton, the purpose of the Digital Services Act  is to guarantee the elimination of illegal or dangerous products that are being sold in the EU via e-commerce platforms. This includes the increasing number of fake and possibly life-threatening medications and pharmaceuticals that are being offered online.




Logistics & Fulfillment


5. The French Fulfillment Facility of Salesupply Has Been Launched


Another new fulfillment location has been incorporated to the global network of the Dutch fulfillment company Salesupply. 


Its location is in the French city of Lyon. The company can process greater quantities of goods in that country due to the warehouse's 15,000 square meters of space.

Salesupply aims to empower ecommerce enterprises to effectively compete on a local scale, regardless of their location. Consequently, the fulfillment center in Lyon is linked to the French PUDO (pick up and drop off) network. 


This offers retailers a widely used shipping option for their clients. In addition, consumers of the fulfillment provider have the option to utilize the local delivery costs and estimated delivery timeframes. In addition, they are granted access to all prominent local French carriers, including Amazon Last Mile delivery.
