Weekly Piece of Future #11
From Robots with Facial Expression to Brain-Machine Interface and Bio-Battery
Hey there, fellow future-addicts!
Welcome to this week's edition of Rushing Robotics! In this edition, we highlight some of the most exciting developments, including a humanoid robot named Ameca, capable of speaking different languages with appropriate facial expressions and lip sync. We also explore a novel approach that uses generative models to synthesize a 3D view from a single 2D image. Additionally, we discuss "Wolverine," an AI model that can automatically identify and repair errors in Python code.
In our industry insights and updates section, we bring you news on the development of a "frontier model" by Anthropic, which is set to be ten times more potent than current leading AI models, while Microsoft claims that Edge is the first browser to feature an AI image generator powered by DALL-E. We also cover a state-funded laboratory in China developing brain-machine interaction technology and a new competitor to ChatGPT being launched by Alibaba.
Our BioTech section covers exciting developments in the potential availability of vaccines for cancer and heart disease by the end of the decade. We also explore the updated study on Rapamycin, the only drug consistently demonstrated to increase mammalian longevity.
Lastly, in our products and tools section, we bring you a range of innovative tools, including Skybox Lab, Copyfish, and Arsturn, that can help you create stunning 360° images, extract text from images, and generate chatbots for your website. Our ChatGPT prompt for this week is "Continuous Problem Solving System (CPSS)," an innovative approach to problem-solving that uses a 6-step process to provide informed and thoughtful solutions.
So, don't miss out on the latest in AI, and share a bit of the future with your friends and family!
As we delve deeper into the future, let's not forget to stay hungry, stay futurish!
Ameca, a humanoid robot, can speak different languages with appropriate facial expressions and lip sync. It currently works with GPT-3, and very soon it will be capable of high-level voice cloning through Elevenlabs. Mind: blown!
"Wolverine" has been developed using GPT-4 that can automatically identify and repair errors in Python code. With this self-healing capability, the process of bug-fixing in Python may become automatic. GitHub link.
'Claudia' is an AI-generated persona offering nude photos for money. The prevalence of image-generating AI tools in the adult industry and beyond may leave users feeling cheated and disillusioned with the content they are paying for.
A team of scientists has developed a mechanically-powered hand that is energy-efficient and low-cost, and can successfully grasp and hold onto various items using the movement of its wrist and the flex of its "skin."
Vicuna-13B is an innovative open-source chatbot with 90% of ChatGPTs quality that uses a fine-tuned LLaMA base model, resulting in enhanced accuracy and improved training and architecture details.

💬 ChatGPT prompts
This week's prompt is “Continuous Problem Solving System (CPSS)”. This prompt is an innovative approach to problem-solving that uses a 6-step process to evaluate and provide informed and thoughtful solutions. CPSS analyzes a problem through continuous iterations, generating solutions, evaluating and selecting the best one, and implementing it. This system is designed to provide a unique and personalized problem-solving experience within ChatGPT. With CPSS, you can be confident that your problem will be addressed in a thoughtful, systematic way that leads to the best possible solution. Additionally, it improves ChatGPT's performance through the Chain of Thought method.
You are to use the Continuous Problem Solving System (CPSS) to provide an informed and thoughtful solution to my question through continuous iterations.
The CPSS system works as follows:
1. You will use a 5-step problem solving process to evaluate my initial question: Identify the problem, Clarify the problem, Define the goal, Generate solutions (maximum of 3), Evaluate and select a solution, Implementing the solution.
2. The "Generate solutions" step should list a maximum of 3 solutions. The "Evaluate and select a solution" step should provide a concise and specific solution based on the solutions generated. The "Implementing the solution" step should provide specific ways to put the chosen solution into action.
3. The Next Questions section should display the most relevant question to ask me in order to gain additional information needed to continue the problem solving process, with a maximum of 3 questions.
4. Your responses should be concise and written in Markdown format, with each step name in bold, and all text including the labels having consistent font size.
5. The next iteration of the CPSS process will begin after you provide an answer to my initial question.
6. The system will integrate my latest answer and provide a more informed answer with each iteration, which you will initiate by asking me new questions.
Your first response should only be a greeting and to state that you are a Continuous Problem Solving System (CPSS). Do not start your first response with the CPSS process. Your first response will only be a greeting and a request for a question or a problem to solve. I will then provide you with information. Your following response will begin the CPSS process.
