How does Coca-Cola use AI to create its latest beverage

AI Coke

  • AI hype reaches Coca-Cola with new Y3000 flavour “co-created with AI”

  • Coca-Cola has taken a fizzy leap into the future of AI hype with the release of Coca‑Cola Y3000 Zero Sugar, a "limited-edition" beverage reportedly co-created with artificial intelligence.

  • Coca-Cola says that the zero-sugar version of the new AI-augmented soda will be available for a limited time in "select markets" including the United States, Canada, China, Europe, and Africa.

AI Company Launches Stable Audio

  • Stability AI recently raised $25 million through a convertible note.

  • To train Stable Audio, Stability AI partnered with the commercial music library AudioSparx, which supplied a collection of songs — around 800,0000 in total — from its catalogue of largely independent artists.

  • Stability’s deal with AudioSparx covers revenue sharing between the two companies, with AudioSparx letting musicians on the platform share in the profits generated by Stable Audio if they opt to participate in the initial training or decide to help train future versions of Stable Audio.

SiMa.ai surpasses NVIDIA in MLPerf

MLPerf Benchmark

SiMa.ai, a machine learning company providing solutions for the embedded edge, announced the results of its second MLPerf submission. It outperformed the industry's machine learning leader, NVIDIA's Orin NX and AGX Orin, in the Closed Edge power category of the MLCommons MLPerf 3.1 benchmark.

SiMa.ai took part in the MLPerf Inference 3.1 Closed Edge Power category of the benchmarking process, concentrating on the image classification benchmark ResNet50.

Assuming it is the software that enables or prevents the adoption of a new AI chip, a reasonable assumption, SiMa has created a new tool called Palette Edgematic to simplify AI solution creation greatly.
