This month has been completely crazy in terms of AI activity. Google, Microsoft and OpenAI are all racing to see who can be the first to develop the next T1000, take our jobs and destroy humanity....Or at least that's what you might believe if you've been paying attention to the news.
For me, this has meant a wave of interesting toys to play with over the last month as developers all jump on the back of new API's and platforms race to make new ones. We're now able to process voice and feed it straight to ChatGPT remotely, automatically summarise pull requests and generate photo realistic images from text (complete with 5 fingered hands!).
I've published 4 videos on my YouTube channel covering the most interesting developer aspects since I last wrote here which is a huge amount for me in that short a space of time. I've also been enjoying experimenting how it can help me come up with better ideas. I don't think I'll be publishing at this rate going forward, but it's fun whilst all these tools have such rapid activity.
It's also crazy seeing indie hackers releasing products using them. See the link below for how Tony Dinh has made $22k with it in a week for his custom ChatGPT interface!
As always, if you have any comments on them or suggestions for the future, please feel free to reply to this email and let me know.
Until next time, keep on shipping!
Josh W Comeau suggests why we probably shouldn't be worried about AI taking our dev jobs any time soon.
Tony Dinh talks about how he was able to make 22k from his product "Typing Mind" - an interface to the ChatGPT API.
It's now possible to run GPT-3 like language models on your own laptop. Simon Willison everything happening with this rapidly emerging technology.
