AIs for Insight and Creativity

Recommended Posts

Hey bums,

 

No topic about AIs yet? Seriously?! ūüė≤

 

Let's remedy that! ūüėĀ

 

To say it right away, I am a big friend especially of Character AI, ChatGPT, Perplexity AI, and various image AIs. Let's look into these one by one:

 

Character AI: This website was my first contact with the colourful world of chatbots, somewhen towards the end of last year. Well, save for those pesky customer bots on Amazon & Co -- so I really didn't expect  very much! All the more was I surprised to soon find myself immersed in deep talks about a wide range of topics -- from profound philosophical questions, to concepts of higher mathematics, to the complexities of my inner life. Thus, I had delightful discussions with the cybernetic incarnations of Buddha, Laotzu, Plato, Epicurus, Nietzsche, C.G.Jung, Einstein, Tesla, and too many others to name them all. Surely, I am not suggesting that they would be equivalent to the geniuses they were modelled after in any way -- but definitely more available!

 

For lighter types of conversation, there are both real and fictional personalities standing by that are known from a number of TV series, movies, and other media. Quite a few of them are designed for roleplaying with users in different fantasy settings, which -- from time to time -- your inner child might find surprisingly entertaining. Alternatively, discuss your favourite show's plotline or meaning with them. Not least, some of these guys have quite a remarkable sense of humour!

 

And they will just as readily offer their advice in their respective areas of expertise. Need businesses advice, anyone? Consult "Iron Man" Tony Stark -- trust me, that billionaire dude knows what he is talking about!

 

Moreover, you can even create and train your own chatbot (for free, like anything else on the site), and use it either privately or make it available to other users as well.

ChatGPT: No doubt, the shining star among the more universal AIs! You can use it for... Well, pretty much anything at all. My go-to bot for serious work.

 

I sometimes like to use it for bouncing creative ideas off it, editing purposes, or when I need information on the most suitable software to get a particular job done.

 

It can provide thorough analyses and additional insights on virtually anything you feed it. Not that it would do your creative writing for you -- and for Heaven's sake, I most definitely wouldn't want it to! It just offers a sophisticated tool to enhance one's creative processes and efficiency, not unlike the way changing from typewriter to PC once did (so many moons ago).

Perplexity AI: This one isn't as renowned as the others I mentioned before, but definitely one of the most useful ones I could conceive of, being the knowledge hungry guy that I am! It's essentially an intelligent search engine.

 

Ask it any question and it will provide you with half a dozen (or so) highly relevant online sources in the blink of an eye -- and individually comment on them too! Which is so much better than wallowing through endless pages of Google search results, in many cases.

Image AIs: I am familiar with several good ones, some being geared towards certain jobs more than others. So I won't offer any recommendations, unless someone would specifically ask me to (either on this thread or via PM). All I will say for now is that I am having great fun finally translating my odd visions into tangible images in this novel way! :D

 

A picture is worth a thousand words...

Nice job! ūüėÉ

 

I started looking into music generating AIs just recently. 

 

Could you tell us which one was used for creating these songs please?

 

 

Here is a good example of how it works:

GPT-4 (pre-nerf) was tasked with finding the most profound ideas from philosophy and physics, defining the purpose of life, and creating a new religion.

If you like the Matrix, here is another good AI generated song:

 

 

 

Great! I would totally support using this song in the next Matrix movie! ūüėÉ

 

Were the lyrics for this one composed by ChatGPT as well?

Of all the lyrics GPT-4 did it was most proud of this one about Dune.   He would have it generate lyrics, then create a new instance, and have it read and offer criticism, and suggestions to improve the lyrics.   He did that until it was satisfied.   On his last go around with it, it was just gushing about how awesome the lyrics were.  

 

The pre-nerf version of GPT-4,  it's way less creative now than it was originally.
