Exploring Generative AI: Platforms, Research, and Applications

Generative AI Tools and Platforms

  • OpenPlayground and Playground.ai are discussed as generative AI experimentation platforms
  • OpenPlayground is noted for its ability to experiment with different diffusion models, parameters, inpainting, and base image generation for LLMs
  • Playground.ai is noted for its popular prompts and upvoting system
  • API access for Playground.ai is expected to be released soon
  • The group discusses the strategy of having a Discord bot but not an API, with some suggesting that it may be due to the cost and difficulty of setting up an inference infrastructure
  • Vast.ai and Hetzner Cloud are mentioned as cloud computing services for renting GPUs
  • Runpod is mentioned as a service for renting out GPUs
  • ImagineAPI.dev is noted as an unofficial MJ API

AI Research and Development

  • The AI Index Report by Stanford University is mentioned
  • Langchain, an AI-powered language learning platform, is praised
  • The group discusses the potential for Indians in India to develop a globally used GenerativeAI library within the next 12 months


  • A generative AI comic created during a weekend hackathon is shared and praised by the group

  • The Twitter link https://twitter.com/lumalabsai/status/1642883558938411008?s=46 includes a message about a report, which can be found at the URL https://aiindex.stanford.edu/report/.
  • https://twitter.com/lumalabsai/status/1642883558938411008?s=46 - A report related to AI can be found at this link, but the message also mentions that a certain behavior is not encouraged.
  • https://twitter.com/CyberSahu/status/1643166480794791938?s=20 - Link to a generative AI project built by the sender and another person, asking for feedback from hackers. Also includes a link to the project’s GitHub page.
  • https://twitter.com/CyberSahu/status/1643166480794791938?s=20 and https://github.com/nat/openplayground - Hackers are being asked for feedback on a generative AI project, with a joke about “killing” a competitor’s project.
  • https://youtu.be/xNqs_S-zEBY: The message in the same link as the URL mentions “AirBnB for GPUs” as a concept, while apologizing to Leap Motion.
  • https://www.hetzner.com/cloud - mentioned as the “OG hotels” in a discussion about Hetzner Cloud on vast.ai.
  • https://www.imagineapi.dev: Claims to be unofficial MJ API, someone didn’t know Jasper trained their models on the Cerebras systems and wonders if they created a MJ bot for the MJ bot.
