AI Happenings You Don’t Want To Miss

OpenAI upended the video generation game by unveiling Sora. It’s SO game-changing, we instantly created a video about it. Prepare to be mind-blown.

Groq (not not Grok, the AI chip company) unveiled its chatbot — which supposedly puts ChatGPT & Gemini to shame… or could help them become even better.

Google made Gemini Advanced available directly in Gmail, Sheets, Slides, & more (for Workspace subscribers only).

Google also introduced Gemma, a set of state-of-the-art open-source LLMs that run locally on your laptop, desktop, or smartphone — meaning you can create content and chatbots without internet connection.

Adobe extended its Firefly AI assistant feature to Acrobat & Reader, simplifying PDFs with summarizations, the ability to ask PDFs questions, citation suggestions, & more.

🌟 GPT of the Week

Identify Your Target Audience — And The Content To Satisfy Them

Not only does the SEO: Search Query Analyzer custom GPT help you identify your target audience, it offers detailed recommendations for how to provide the best resource for those audiences.

How It Works

Simply type in your target search query — aka a specific word or phrase people search that would lead them to your website (we tried ‘AI video tools’). Then the GPT will share:

What type of content top ranking sites for this term are providing

E.g.: Ranking URLs are:

  • a mix of recent & timeless content

  • are articles reviewing or listing different AI video tools available

  • provide insights into various AI video tools, highlighting their features, pros and cons, and pricing

Personas likely searching the term

E.g.: The likely audience includes beginners to intermediate users in video editing, content creators, marketers, & small- to medium-sized businesses looking for efficient ways to produce video content.

The personas’ intents

E.g.: The search intent seems to be informational, with users likely seeking to understand which tools are available, how they can benefit from using them, and which ones might best meet their needs.

Content suggestions to satisfy that persona

  • Comprehensive tool reviews: key features, ease of use, pricing, & use cases

  • Tool comparisons

  • Insights into user experience, customer support, community feedback, tutorials, & videos about the tools

More recommendations

  • How in-depth the content should be

  • Update frequency

  • Tips, e.g.: copy-paste your or competitors content into the GPT to have it analyze how well the content satisfies the search query & to get suggestions for improvement
