AI Bot Code, Art, Purchase Parity, and Movie Ideas
AI Bot Code The group chat mentions that the Hasura AI bot code has been open-sourced and can be easily deployed with one click. They share a link to read more about it on https://theresanaiforthat.com/. AI Art The group chat discusses Offset Noise, which is apparently heating up AI art. They share a link to a tweet from MetaAI about it: https://twitter.com/MetaAI/status/1631351811696394240?s=20. Purchase Parity One member of the group mentions that the person behind Offset Noise is also running purchase parity, which they feel most products miss.
Exploring Generative AI and Brain-Computer Interfaces
Generative AI: GoogleAI’s new Flan-UL2 20B is out Discussion on compute required for good/useful throughput Comparison with chatGPT API in terms of cost and data localization/compliance needs Need for specialized models and configurable/finetunable base models Two interesting articles from a16z on generative AI platform and everyday AI for consumers Links to personal articles on generative AI product strategy and AI products arms race Discussion on fMRI to SD research from Japan and its limitations Personal experience with off-the-shelf brain devices and noise in data Use of fMRI data for cleaner and more interesting analyses Request for resources on using SD for designers and artists Recommendation for Automatic1111 for using SD with plugins, but requires GPU and technical setup Excitement over possibility of getting actual footage of dreams Miscellaneous:
Exploring ChatGPT API, Whisper Updates, and Anime Production
ChatGPT API Launch and Updates OpenAI provided an update on ChatGPT and Whisper API. A Twitter user shared a link to the ChatGPT API launch. A user mentioned getting controlnet working in a satisfactory way. Someone asked about deploying gpt-3.5-turbo on production apps and how it performs at scale. Another user replied that it is mostly stable but may require retries with exponential backoff. Corridor Digital’s Anime Creation StabilityAI shared a link to a tweet about Corridor Digital’s process for creating anime using SD VFX and Blender.
