Open AI - Anyone Playing With It?

I put in this prompt…

In the style of a drunk Charles Bukowski write a review of the new balearic dance record

And got this returned…

This record is fucking terrible. It’s like they took a bunch of boring elevator music and just slapped a 4/4 beat behind it. There’s no soul, no feeling, nothing. Just a bunch of boring, generic crap. If you want to listen to some good balearic music, go check out some of the old classics like Cafe Del Mar or Ibiza Chillout. But this new record is just a pile of shit.

I’ve been playing around with it for about a year now - I was sceptical at first but was surprised by how good some of the responses were.

I’ve been getting it to draft replies to work emails and other stuff like that, and it usually gets them about 99% there - I find increasing the temperature to about 0.9 really helps to generate more useful responses.

I also used the Dall-E tool to generate artworks for my monthly radio show - I gave it a few examples of William Eggleston photographs then asked it to generate more like it (with a few additional pointers) and got some pretty decent stuff back:

Yeah the human element is obviously where it falls down but it’s totally fascinating and at the same time scary.

How do you implement it into your work emails? Are you just using playground or is there another way to do it?

The beauty of it is that it understands context really well, so it can understand what an email is quite easily - you could build it into a tool that drafts email replies based on your own email training data if you wanted - but I literally just paste the original email into Playground and then type the first few words of my reply underneath (e.g. Hi Name,) and then it knows that it needs to complete the rest of the email:

"Hi Craig,

Just needed a bit of advice in terms of layout for Friday’s submission. Our group have split opinions on what is wanted in terms of the layout; so to solve this I thought I’d come straight to the source and see what you prefer.

Some are wanting to go for the bullet point form and others full expanded paragraphs for the first part. With it being limited to an A4 we are just trying to find the most effective way to fit it all in.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Annabel


Hi Annabel,

Thanks for reaching out. The best way to go about this would be to use bullet points with a brief introduction. This way, you can highlight the key points without compromising on space available.

I hope this helps. Good luck with the submission!

Regards,
Craig

The bit in bold is the text that Open AI generated.

Dall-E is incredible for artwork, I’ve been having a play on it since the Plaid interview, the best thing about it is being able to input sections of images that it creates new areas of based on the parts that you leave empty. Here are some examples:

Had a quick mess around with DALL-E. Early days…

Cheers for this post. Been messing with it all week. Definitely an amazing tool if you work with imagery a lot.

Decided to copy some random record covers using just prompts. Mad :joy:

I mean I know as a thing it’s highly scary but the fact it can generate stuff we can’t conceive of like that is pretty mad. I do worry for many creatives though. It may be tough times ahead in sone fields.

Prompt:
Brainstorm problems that might arise from running a Balearic music night in a rural pub.

Response:

  1. Difficulty finding enough local customers to make the night profitable.
  2. Unfamiliarity with Balearic music among rural pub regulars, leading to low attendance or even rejection of the event.
  3. Lack of adequate sound system for playing Balearic music in a rural pub setting.
  4. Finding and booking DJs that specialize in Balearic music who are willing to travel to a rural location for an event night may be difficult and expensive.
  5. Availability of appropriate lighting equipment necessary for creating an atmosphere conducive to enjoying Balearic music at a rural pub may also be limited or nonexistent.
  6. Difficulty obtaining alcohol licenses from local authorities due to stricter regulations in more remote locations
