The most useful I've seen is to practice a foreign language with an AI bot talk.quazel.com/

Here the need is real, it is hard to make friends in a language you don't master yet, being shy, fearing to make mistake, etc are major issues

Love that! It reminds me of this submission from @miguelmj for our hackathon at the beginning of the year!

As an MCU movie watcher, its Disney's new FRAN AI that can de-age or age actors on the fly:
theverge.com/2022/12/1/23488336/di...

This isn't super new technology, its been a "filter" on Snapchat for a while. However a big-name company using it, and having results that look pretty great looks promising.

I'm curious if this has been used in other movies yet. I know they have de-aged Indiana Jones in the latest movie, and that also looks pretty good, so I'm curious if this was leveraged for that.

Today's movies are filled with so much CGI, that quality across the board has fallen simply due to the volume of work that needs to be done. If animators/artists/special-effects-people could leverage some AI in some places to make better looking things, I think its a win-win. Get to create these cool concepts, while not overworking the market, and still being able to execute all of them at a large scale.

That's an awesome use case. I wonder how that impacts things like costume and makeup for movies that require actors got through major time changes.

This would be another area I think it could be useful, but I'm not sure where the training data would come from.

We have tons of records for knowing how people age, but that doesn't apply to getting an artist's ideas into the practical world, since is all unique.

Bekah, my mind has been blown this past month as I've dived deeper into transformers and what is now possible. The world is clearly quite different here.

I'm going to be writing a lot more on transformers shortly, but some key things that have dazzled me have been:

Glowing Squirrel in the woods

  • Image generation using MidJourney (see my Twitter art posts for additional samples)
  • Automatic story generation (with images) from Fabled.AI
  • Physna unveiling a transformer capable of generating limited 3D scenes
  • Anything and everything from ChatGPT
  • My own limited success training an AI to play One Night Ultimate Werewolf

Oh, and of course, Lensa, though its images have been interesting at times.

Myself as Brick from Borderlands?

Terrifying fake images of myself aside, this stuff is groundbreaking and is only going to get better over time. We have some critical needs we need to address with transformers, but it's incredible that they've only been around 5 years.

I haven't used Lensa yet, but I'm so tempted as I see more folks posting their images.

ChatGPT has had my attention this last week, but I do worry about the authoritative way that it answers questions, considering those answers aren't always correct.

Same. I've seen some really great ways to use it. And as a former English teacher, I think this is the biggest impact I've seen to liberal arts education.
