2. Artificial Intelligence Cracks Code to Developing New Antibiotics

Researchers used artificial intelligence to screen millions of chemical compounds and identify a new class of antibiotics capable of treating infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria. In mice studies, the antibiotic compounds showed promise against Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus. The AI models analyzed chemical structures to predict each compound's antibacterial effects and toxicity. This approach identified non-toxic compounds that effectively killed MRSA and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus in mouse skin and thigh infections. The new antibiotic class could help combat increasing antibiotic resistance, which causes over a million deaths annually. The researchers plan to utilize this AI-guided drug discovery method to identify additional new antibiotics. Read More.

3. AI Children's Stories - Benefits and Drawbacks

Recent advances in AI allow tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT to generate personalized children's stories using kids' names and favorite characters. However, these AI-written stories raise questions around copyright law, quality control, and child safety protections. While personalized stories may increase child engagement, AI-generated plots are frequently generic. Parents could potentially use AI stories as a starting point, but likely need to edit them to improve quality. Legal issues persist regarding AI use of trademarked characters without permission.

4. AI Crystal Ball: 8 Predictions for 2024

TechCrunch predictions for 2024: AI will move from hype to reality as capabilities and limitations come into focus. OpenAI will likely push commercialization, while other big tech players follow suit. Monolithic large language models will hit computational limits, giving way to mixing multiple specialized models. Many overhyped marketing claims for AI tools will get reassessed as benefits fail to justify costs. Lawsuits citing harms from AI systems will continue, though few will succeed due to legal barriers. Early adopters will update policies to get ahead of pending regulations.
