Google Maps is promising to help users find cool places through the use of AI.

What it does:

The new feature uses AI to recommend places like playgrounds, markets, and unique restaurants in your area.

This AI looks for keywords in your search, such as “trendy” or “vintage,” and uses these to find recommendations from its vast database of places, reviews, and photos.

Initially, this feature will be available only in the U.S. for now.

Deepfake costs company $25 million

Generated by Midjourney

Scammers tricked an employee into transferring over $25 million by using AI-generated “deepfakes” to impersonate the CFO and other executives of a multinational company during a video call.

The employee was initially skeptical of an email asking for a large transfer but was convinced after participating in the video call.

Then the employee followed the fake CFO’s instructions and remitted the funds to multiple bank accounts across 15 transfers.

Here’s how to spot a deepfake fraud
