GPT-4 has come to LinkedIn, because of course it has

With the official introduction of Open AI’s GPT-4, Microsoft is expanding its range of product support to include AI upgrades embedded into LinkedIn.

The business-focused social media platform announced Thursday that it will begin testing a host of AI-driven features based on both the GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 language models with its Premium subscribers. These functions will allow people to do things such as create more personalized profiles and job descriptions using AI-generated prompts. In particular, the GPT-4 language model will be the power behind AI profile writing, according to LinkedIn.

You will be able to craft a personal statement on your LinkedIn profile with a prompt such as, “How do I summarize my career highlights and aspirations into just a few sentences?”

One of the primary features of GPT-4 is a greater ability to contextualize the information it is presented, as well as a higher degree of collaboration than the prior model. Still, you will have the ability to “review and edit” any generated text to maintain your own tone and authenticity. LinkedIn notes that GPT-3.5 will focus on generating job descriptions for companies.

Along with the language model updates, LinkedIn is offering over 100 AI courses, which will be available for free to all members through June 15. Some titles include “What is Generative AI” by Pinar Seyhan Demirdag, “Introduction to Prompt Engineering for Generative AI” by Ronnie Sheer, and “Introduction to Conversational AI” by Ian Barkin. There are courses available for all professional levels.

Open AI officially announced the GPT-4 language model on Tuesday, saying it is available to ChatGPT Plus users and developers through the API.

The company also said that several brands and organizations have been working with the language model, including Duolingo, Be My Eyes, Stripe, Morgan Stanley, Khan Academy, and the government of Iceland. Microsoft also confirmed that its new Bing Search featuring an AI chatbot is based on GPT-4. The updated search engine debuted in February.

Fortunately, enabling Secure Boot is as quick as changing a single BIOS setting.

Here's how to do it.

No, Intel’s Lunar Lake CPUs aren’t being delayed
Intel keynote.

Intel's hotly-anticipated Lunar Lake CPUs look like they're suffering a delay, at least according to a report from DigiTimes. The outlet, which covers semiconductor news, says that shipments of the chips are arriving in September and that they were originally planned for June. Intel says otherwise, however.

When Intel first announced Lunar Lake, it said they would arrive between July and September of this year. More specifically, the company pointed out that they'd be available before the holiday shopping season. If June was the original plan, we'd already have a lot more details about the processors. It looks like September was the target all along.

Hacker claims to have hit Apple days after hacking AMD

Data breaches happen all the time, but when the giants get hit, it's impossible not to wonder what kind of critical data may become exposed. Earlier this week, notorious cybercriminal Intelbroker reported that they managed to hack AMD. Now, they followed up with claims about hacking Apple, and went as far as to share some internal source code on a hacking forum.

As Apple has yet to comment, all we have to go off is the forum post, first shared by HackManac on X (formerly Twitter). In the post, Intelbroker states that Apple suffered a data breach that led to the exposure of the source code for some of its internal tools. The tools include AppleConnect-SSO, Apple-HWE-Confluence-Advanced. There's been no mention of any customer data being leaked, which is good news, but there could still be some impact on Apple if this proves to be true.
