The description and link can be mismatched because of extraction errors.

  • URL: Not provided. The message is related to the introduction of the sender, who is a new media artist and educator focused on making cutting edge technology accessible. The sender also runs a website focused on addressing societal challenges of technology in the Indian context. The question “is it done via stop motion?” is not related to the given context.
  • https://github.com/justanotherlad/blindvisaidgpt: The author mentions trying out generative video models and shares a link to their GitHub repository. They also introduce themselves as a search engineer at Wolfram|Alpha.
  • https://m.economictimes.com/tech/ites/tech-mahindra-tests-goggles-for-blind-plans-variant-for-cars/articleshow/45302948.cms - The link is related to a discussion about a project done for TechMahindra that involved creating goggles for the blind and a possible variant for cars. The message also suggests that the project was not open source and should not be shared outside, but mentions that similar projects could be done today using phones with decent computing power.
  • If anyone is interested in making ControlNet work on iPhone, this is a good start: https://github.com/apple/ml-stable-diffusion/issues/131
  • https://aisnakeoil.substack.com/p/gpt-4-and-professional-benchmarks - Context: Aravind’s post about contamination and GPT-4’s performance.
  • https://about.sourcegraph.com/blog/cheating-is-all-you-need: The author discounts Github’s excellent search product which has similar or maybe larger advantage than Sourcegraph, while someone on Twitter says gpt-4 does much worse than leetcode hard on newer Euler problems.
  • https://niranting.substack.com/ (The author’s Substack, discussing the potential of LLM-powered coding assistants and referencing a Google rant from 2011)
  • https://www.buildt.ai - a website that potentially uses LLM powered coding assistants and has search capabilities on codebases.
  • https://github.com/features/preview/copilot-x: Github Copilot X (available for preview only) is mentioned as a tool that is going to change how we work, and the author is working on something using LLMs.
