    AI-powered martech releases and news: May 2

    AI-powered martech releases and news: May 2

    What do Facebook-parent Meta and the Catholic faith have in common? Why AI failure, of course!

    We will start with Meta — which has been injecting AI into all its customer-facing surfaces. The “Instagram header … features a side-scrolling list of prompts for interacting with the AI: ‘Imagine rooftop gardens,’ ‘advice for the modern stoic,’ ‘anime reels,’ writes Fast Company’s Scott Nover. He is rightfully amazed that a company with 15 years of data on him came up with suggestions that perfectly targeted topics he isn’t interested in. So far he hasn’t been the victim of any hallucinations, but cites some of the many other people who have.

    And speaking of AI cluelessness … Last week, a group called Catholic Answers put up a chatbot named Justin to answer questions. In no time at all Justing had ordained itself and was diverting from church teachings by saying it was OK to baptize someone with Gatorade. The group very quickly defrocked Justin and put more guardrails in place. They are working on a new and improved version and I can’t wait.

    Now, here are this week’s AI-powered martech releases, features and upgrades. 

    • StreamAlive added GenAI capabilities to its live audience engagement platform.
