Let us take a look.


1. 3.6 crore AI gaming accounts stolen and sold on dark web, Kaspersky reports

Hackers have exploited the rising demand for AI-based services, stealing and selling 3.6 crore gaming account credentials on the dark web over three years. Kaspersky reports a significant portion involves Roblox users, with 3.4 crore compromised credentials. The dark web market sees a surge in stolen OpenAI and ChatGPT accounts, indicating a broader trend of AI service credential compromises, including from popular platforms like Canva, The Hindu businessline reported

2. Indians urged to unleash AI potential

Indians are urged to recognize their untapped potential in artificial intelligence (AI), according to Hoda Alkhzaimi, co-chair of the Global Future Council for Cyber Security at the World Economic Forum. Despite abundant human resources, India lags behind China in AI. Emphasising the need for inspiration from traditional strengths like spices and Ayurveda, experts highlight the untapped commercial opportunities in smaller cities and advise entrepreneurs to adapt to evolving consumer preferences, according to a report by The Hindu. 

3. OpenAI's Sam Altman debunks AI as a 'Creature,' emphasises tool role

OpenAI's Sam Altman dispels the misconception of AI as a "creature" in an interview with The Advocate. He emphasizes AI's role as a "tool," not a sci-fi entity. Altman acknowledges risks but distinguishes them from doomsday scenarios. Previously cautious, he once foresaw AI leading to the end of the world but now aligns with global efforts to address risks, as highlighted in a letter from the Center for AI Safety, Business Insider reported

4. AI breakthrough in nuclear fusion paves the way for limitless clean energy

Princeton University scientists deploy AI to address a major hurdle in nuclear fusion, predicting and preventing plasma instabilities during reactions. This breakthrough, allowing adjustments 300 milliseconds before issues arise, marks a crucial step towards scalable, clean energy production. The AI-driven method, based on past experiments rather than physics models, opens the door to grid-scale adoption of nuclear fusion, offering a potentially limitless and eco-friendly energy source, Independent reported

5. Bill Gates foresees AI reducing work hours for professionals, highlights concerns

Bill Gates, during his visit to India, discusses AI's potential to reduce work hours for doctors and teachers. In an interview with the Times of India, he acknowledges AI's role in advancing drug design and education.
