Artificial intelligence startups in U.S. are busy upgrading their products in an effort to enhance user experience, allowing them to use AI tools for creating 3D immersive videos and getting detailed business analysis by simply giving a prompt.

The Silicon Valley startup Vimmerse has just launched a new AI-powered editor, which can turn ordinary photos into animated 3D immersive videos. What used to take graphic designers hours to do, now just takes a few clicks.

"So, photos are great, but it's kind of also limited with the output. So, imagine what will happen if you are like shopping online and then like you can turn all of these like more dynamic. Or you actually go to like dine in a restaurant, and you check the menu, the menu all like popping up like in 3D, or like moving in AI. It's kind of like more kind of engaging, more connecting with the customers," said Basel Salahieh, CEO of Vimmerse.

Ayraa is a personal executive assistant that can connect with all the workplace browsers and applications.

It can remind you of meetings, cancel and reschedule meetings while checking your colleagues' schedules, or simply attend the meeting for you and provide highlights.

Compared with similar AI tool, Aryaa goes a step further. It is capable of taking queries about business and providing insights.

"You basically get a business analyst in your pocket with AI. You can send a PDF document, a spreadsheet, anything in the workplace to AI and say what was the best quarter last year. Boom, you know third quarter did really well. The fourth one was, maybe slow because of Christmas and those kinds of things," said Vinay Mahadik, CEO of Ayraa.

Shanghai and Silicon Valley-headquartered Akool are pushing the bounds of generative AI with a technology that face swaps with incredible realism.

In India, its tech was behind a social media advertising campaign that allowed anyone to upload a selfie, which was used to put them in a personalized commercial with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

"It's mainly about making the user experience it themselves by creating their own versions, their own copies. We work with model agency companies and this allows the models don't need to go to the actual shooting site," said Jeff Lu, CEO of Akool.

A report released by KPMG International Ltd, one of the world's Big Four accounting organizations, showed that by the end of June 2023, the U.S. hosted 33.6 percent, or 13,000 of the world's 36,000 AI companies.

Japanese seek diversified investment options as yen devalues

2024-07-14 12:04 Last Updated At:12:37

The Japanese people are eyeing diversified investment options at a three-day wealth management exhibition which started on Friday in Tokyo, as the depreciation of their fiat currency yen goes on.

Since July, the retail price of gold in Japan has repeatedly hit new highs, and the price per gram rose to 13,612 yen (about 86 U.S. dollars) on Thursday.

As inflation continues in Japan, precious metals are increasingly popular as a way to beat it.

In addition to paper gold, rare precious metal coins have gradually become one of the new financial investment favorites in Japan in recent years.

"The gold content of coins determines their value as precious metals. But as collectibles, their price on the auction market will go up," said Mitsuru Hayama, an exhibitor.

In addition to traditional financial products which include real estate, there is a trend of diversification at this exhibition.

For example, for investment products such as agricultural blueberry gardens and mushroom farms, investors can choose to make investment only, or they can participate in specific business operations.

Investable wines and whiskies are also a big draw at the expo. Among them, wine investment has an online trading model, where investors can view the latest prices of wines on their mobile phones in real time and conduct transactions .

"You buy it when it's cheap and drink it whenever you want. This is the prime pleasure of investing in the wine. Even if you don't drink it yourself, you'll be happy if its price rallies," said Eiji Odawara, an exhibitor.

According to the latest data released by the Bank of Japan in June, as of the end of March this year, the scale of Japanese household financial assets inched up 7.1 percent compared with the same period last year, reaching 2,199 trillion yen (about 13.9 trillion U.S. dollars), hitting record highs for five consecutive quarters.

Among them, cash and deposits accounted for 50.9 percent, much higher than other advanced economies such as the United States and some European countries.
