I'm not a huge fan of image generating AIs like DALL-E. They do seem to be entirely a novelty, and I have trouble imagining a useful case for this kind of thing. It just cheapens visual arts by making them soulless and weird.
For writing technical documents and reports, GPT is a nice tool for massaging content into the right format, but DALL-E just automates human creativity in a way that removes the humanity...
I've finally stopped seeing generative AI as a novelty, and really leaned into the useful things I can make it do.
My current favorite is writing documents in markdown, and asking ChatGPT for feedback. It's surprisingly good at offering advice and reviewing my next draft as I write a document.
If I ask it to rewrite a document, I save the returned markdown into a separate file and diff it with the original. Really amazing the little changes it makes.
I've been so busy working I forgot to mention, I'm in Manchester, England this week for business!
I'll have all day Saturday to do as I please, so if anyone who follows me lives in the area and wants to meet up for drinks or something, let me know. This city is fun, but having company is even more fun.
We very rarely have lightnings in the Seattle area, so last night I was happy to finally capture a good show.
This shot made it to the local news (see comment).
I think this is going to accidentally sabotage human rights reporting (and efforts).
This is the Vranas instance.
