I asked an AI for video ideas, and they were actually good

1 157 690 意见

I didn't expect this to work so well. • Includes text generated by OpenAI's GPT-3 at my request: openai.com • Art by Chris Quay: www.chrisquay.com/ • Got an idea for a video? www.tomscott.com/contact/
Filmed safely: www.tomscott.com/safe/
OpenAI had no control or sign-off on this video, although I agreed to abide by their ethical guidelines and social media policy.
Thanks to Eddie the corgi's owner for introducing me to the folks at OpenAI: instagram.com/eddie_corg

  • I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

  • Well, I guess CNN can now save millions in personnel costs by employing this AI. Since they don't seem to case whether their reporting has any correlation with reality, there isn't really any downside for them. Tell us if you're going to suggest it to them, so we can buy some stock beforehand, cuttung that much cost is bound to make them skyrocket.

  • A.N.N.E. is a protocol standard for storing various data on-chain via OP return (and later op pushdata). It loosely emulates the human brain in that its basic building block is a neuron and those neurons interconnect to form circuits. Using the standard creates a “relon”. A relon is a conceptually encoded standardized indexed triplet. Everything and anything can be encoded with ANNE by breaking it down into its most basic concepts and wiring them back together as a circuit.
