Stable Diffusion for music

PLUS: Firefly pays stock contributors and US senate's AI forum

Hello folks, here’s what we have today;

 Our picks 


Stability AI launches music generation tool - Stable Audio. Stable audio can generate music up to 90 seconds in the paid version ($12/month). The songs can be downloaded in 44.1kHz stereo.

It is a lot different from other Stability’s projects: The underlying model is not released, the web app looks really well put together (compared to other offerings). Techcrunch has coverage on the year-long making of Stable Audio and what it means for the future.


Adobe’s Firefly is now generally available after 160 days in beta. Adobe will charge based on "generative credits" that limit how fast users can generate images. Paid Creative Cloud plans will get 1,000 credits and free users get 25 credits to use Firefly across Adobe’s apps (for eg: generative fill in Photoshop). Also, Adobe’s going to pay bonuses to the Stock image contributors whose content is being used to train Firefly.


The US Senate's AI Insight Forum. Elon warned of existential AI threats while Gates said AI could help fight hunger. Zuckerberg defended open-sourcing AI models despite risks. All tech leaders present, including Google and Microsoft CEOs, agreed AI regulation is needed, but differed on specifics like stifling innovation versus addressing current harms.

The end of project management by humans.

Project management is necessary — it’s how we stay in sync and hit deadlines. But it’s often tedious. Stressful. Complicated. And most of all, far from your true ambition.

Enter Height, the first and only AI project manager, offloading the drudgery of project management, so you can get back to bringing ideas to life.

Enter a new era of project management here.
