In this episode of Discover Daily, host Alex, powered by ElevenLabs AI, explores three fascinating stories at the intersection of science and technology. First, we dive into Shutterstock's game-changing AI training deals with tech giants like OpenAI, Meta, Google, Amazon, and Apple. These partnerships involve licensing Shutterstock's vast library of images, videos, and music to train AI models, positioning the company as a key player in the AI revolution while ensuring artists are fairly compensated.

Next, we turn our attention to the upcoming Great North American Eclipse on April 8, 2024. This rare and spectacular total solar eclipse will be visible across Mexico, the United States, and Canada, with the path of totality stretching from coast to coast. We discuss viewing safety, educational opportunities, and the significance of this celestial event. Finally, we explore the controversial cloud brightening experiment in San Francisco, where researchers are testing marine cloud brightening as a potential tool to combat climate change by spraying sea salt particles into the atmosphere to increase cloud reflectivity and cool the planet.
