For over 20 years it’s been an open secret that porn drives many new consumer technology innovations, from VHS and Pay-per-view to VR and the Internet. It’s been no different in AI - many of the most elite Stable Diffusion and Llama enjoyers and merging/prompting/PEFT techniques were born in the depths of subreddits and 4chan boards affectionately descibed by friend of the pod as...

We are 200 people over our 300-person venue capacity for AI UX 2024, but you can subscribe to our YouTube for the video recaps.

Our next event, and largest EVER, is the AI Engineer World’s Fair. See you there!

Parental advisory: Adult language used in the first 10 mins of this podcast.

Any accounting of Generative AI that ends with RAG as its “final form” is seriously lacking in imagination and missing out on its full potential. While AI generation is very good for “spicy autocomplete” and “reasoning and retrieval with in context learning”, there’s a lot of untap...

We are reuniting for the 2nd AI UX demo day in SF on Apr 28. Sign up to demo here!

And don’t forget tickets for the AI Engineer World’s Fair — for early birds who join before keynote announcements!

About a year ago there was a lot of buzz around prompt engineering techniques to force structured output. Our friend Simon Willison tweeted a bunch of tips and tricks, but the most iconic one is Riley Goodside making it a matter of life or death:

It’s become fashionable for many AI startups to project themselves as “the next Google” - while the search engine is so 2000s, both Perplexity and Exa referred to themselves as a “research engine” or “answer engine” in our NeurIPS pod. However these searches tend to be relatively shallow, and it is challenging to zo...

In last year’s the Rise of the AI Engineer we put our money where our mouth was and announced the AI Engineer Summit, which fortunately went well:

With ~500 live attendees and over ~500k views online, the first iteration of the AI Engineer industry affair seemed to be well received. Competing in an expensive city with 3 other more established AI conferences in t...

Making Transformers Sing - with Mikey Shulman of Suno

Making Transformers Sing - with Mikey Shulman of Suno

Giving computers a voice has always been at the center of sci-fi movies; “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that” wouldn’t hit as hard if it just appeared on screen as a terminal output, after all. The first electronic speech synthesizer, the Voder, was built at Bell Labs 85 years ago (1939!), and it’s…. something:

We will not cover the history of Text To Speech (TTS), but the evolution of the underlying architecture has generally been Formant Synthesis → Concatenative Synthesis → Neural Networks. Nowadays, state of the art TTS is just one API call away with model...
