    AI-powered martech news and releases: June 6

    No one doubts AI can be a great help to businesses. However, is it any good as a business? 

    None of the companies that develop AI models — including Google, Microsoft and OpenAI — can say when they might even break even on their huge investments in it.

    As Christopher Mims pointed out in the Wall Street Journal: Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia calculated that in 2023 the industry spent $50 billion on chips from Nvidia to train AI while only bringing in $3 billion in revenue. As of last October OpenAI was spending $700,000 each day to run ChatGPT. Charging enough to pay for that would deter anyone from using it. So far OpenAI has investors lining up to give it money, but at some point, they may want to see at least a path to profitability.

    To quote the late Sen. Everett Dirksen, “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.”

    One of the problems for all these companies is there is no clear differentiator between their products. All general-purpose AIs train on much the same data and deliver essentially the same results. As Mims wrote: “All of the best proprietary AI models are converging on about the same scores on tests of their abilities, and even free, open-source models, like those from Meta and Mistral, are catching up.” 

    The result is AI commodification and barring a technological breakthrough that’s unlikely to change.

    Here are this week’s AI-powered martech releases, enhancements and upgrades.

    • Salesforce Tableau’s Tableau Pulse leverages Tableau AI to make data more accessible to all users regardless of their experience with data visualization. An insights platform runs atop the data, surfacing insights (based on defined metrics and KPIs) in natural language using genAI.
    • Wix.com’s AI-powered mobile app builder. Through a conversational AI chat experience, Wix  Users describe the intent of the app via chat and the builder creates a professional, unique and customizable application. It can be customized via the Mobile App Editor to make additional changes such as sections, widgets, designs, themes, and more. 
    • Lightricks’ LTX Studio AI video production tool has new project creation capabilities. Users can start projects in two ways: Script to Video converts a script or creative brief into a detailed visual storyboard; and Blank Canvas lets you start with a blank storyboard and generate an entire story, frame by frame.
