Simple use cases to get you started with #AI copywriting 👇🏻

⌨️ Rewrite boilerplate

Google’s Webmaster Guidelines say you should minimize boilerplate content for maximum SEO benefit, and AI is excellent at regurgitating copy.’s paragraph generator tool rewrites up to 800 characters into a similar—yet different—boilerplate.

🖊️ Tackle writer’s block

Everyone needs a friend, and sometimes that friend is a robot. 🤖

Querying AI and reading as its stream of consciousness response appears, one line at a time, is a truly therapeutic and invigorating experience.

💻 Recycle evergreen content

Turn your evergreen content into a garden of fresh blooms with AI. Ask ChatGPT to rewrite your blog and specify the level of similarity to the original. In a brief moment, you’ll have a fresh blog.

Pro tip: use Grammarly for edits and tone adjustments for maximum ease.

Whether you’ve used AI for copywriting already, or are thinking about crafting your first prompt, share your thoughts! 💭

📝 Scaling Expert Language Models with Unsupervised Domain Discovery 📚👾

"Introduces a simple but effective method to asynchronously train large, sparse language models on arbitrary text corpora, and outperform dense baselines on multiple corpora and few-shot tasks." [gal30b+] 🤖 #CL #AI

🔗 #arxiv

Figure 5. Increasing cluster count in C-BTM improves language modeling performance for a fixed compute budget (§4.1). Performance of ELMs trained with C-BTM as a function of the total number of tokens trained on, which, in our experiments, equalizes FLOP count. Training with more than one cluster always outperforms the compute-matched, single cluster dense model, and we observe improving performance (and in §4.2, faster updates) as we increase the number of clusters.
Figure 6. There exists an optimal cluster count for each compute budget (§4.1). The optimal cluster count increases as one increases the compute budget, but using too many clusters without sufficiently increasing compute can degrade performance. For both C4 and S2ORC, 16 clusters gets the best performance at the highest budget (168B tokens), although higher cluster counts still outperform the 1-cluster (dense) model (x = 1 in this graph).
Figure 16. Clusters and metadata do not perfectly align (§7.4). Each cell in the heatmap is the % overlap between a cluster and a metadata label identifying the field-of-study of a document in S2ORC; high overlap indicates that most documents with the corresponding label get assigned to the corresponding cluster. While documents with certain labels (e.g., Environmental Science, Political Science, Business) get primarily assigned to a single cluster, documents with other labels (e.g., Engineering, Physics, Computer Science) are distributed across multiple clusters.
Figure 2. C-BTM training process (§2.1). C-BTM begins with unsupervised domain discovery using k-means clustering. We then initialize expert language models (ELMs) with a seed language model (e.g., OPT; Zhang et al. 2022) and train an ELM on each cluster. The resulting experts are added to a larger collection for sparse inference.

I've been going around applying for graduate positions since I finish my stint at university term this year (around August)

Was a bit shocked when a friend suggested that that I put all my experiences into ChatGPT and ask it to make a cover letter for me/other things I would need for the graduate application.

I was further shocked that upon me saying "Nah i'll do it myself" that I was met with "why?", they explained that the AI would do it better. It wasn't cheating technically, so why did I not want to do that.

Honestly I had nothing to say to that. I have no idea why I didn't want to do it. It just feels wrong? I know that it's probably smarter and that I am actively damaging my prospects by not doing so but, it feels wrong.

Maybe I'm too sentimental a human, too flawed and naive to take advantage of a great tool. It just feels wrong, it may also be because I am a person with a disability and I have volunteered and gotten casual jobs around that and my experience is too emotionally based that I can't separate myself from it. Or my bias assumes that if I don't write it, it won't feel right.

Regardless what do you guys think? Does it make sense that I have a sense of apprehension about using ChatGPT for Graduate applications(Or other things)? And would you use ChatGPT to do your work applications?

Technology sector leaders call for a pause in the 'out of control' artificial intelligence (#AI) race. Elon Musk, a right wing libertarian extremist among them, but I ignore him always

It is obvious that there are only two arguments creatives (artists, writers) have against the use—and particularly the commercial use—of #AI prose and image generators, and that all other arguments, when stripped of their nonsense and inconsistencies, are just cover for these. First, that creatives want you to not use these tools, and to pay them instead. Second, that computers making prose and images are creepy. The debate about this tech would be far more fruitful if we acknowledged this.

Just finished an essay, coming Friday to my newsletter, about one of the dumbest arguments against #ChatGPT, #Midjourney, and other #AI prose and image generators. Namely, that they are somehow stealing artists' IP by creating new works similar to their style. Every point made to advance the case for IP theft applies equally to other human artists, and so if this argument is true, then, in a reductio ad absurdum, every human artist is an IP thief, too.

Last September, Mathew Dryhust, an artist and academic, and the experimental electronic artist Holly Herndon, created HaveIBeenTrained, a tool that enables you to see if your images have been used and then request that future A.I. models avoid them. It recently became clear that this was more than a subversive art project when the CEO of the company behind Stable Diffusion, one of the most widely used A.I. image generators, gave people a March 3 deadline to opt out using Herndon and Dryhurst’s tool. Millions of requests poured in, Dryhurst told me. As of this week, around 40,000 artists and many companies, including Shutterstock, a major image distributor, have opted out."

Yes, there are several online SVG compressors that can also compress bitmaps embedded in the SVG. Some examples of these compressors include:

SVGOMG - This is a free online tool that allows you to compress SVG files, including any embedded bitmap images. You can upload your SVG file or paste the code directly into the tool, and it will optimize the file by removing any unnecessary code and compressing bitmap images.
SVG-optimiser - This is another free online tool that can compress both SVG files and any embedded bitmaps. It has a simple interface that allows you to upload your file and select the level of compression you want to apply.
SVGminify - This is a free online tool that can compress SVG files, including embedded bitmaps. It uses various optimization techniques to reduce the file size without affecting the quality of the image.

@thunderbird Personally, I think the current flurry of #OpenAI #GPT models are a solution in search of a problem. There may indeed be problem domains for which these could be useful. But the best use cases I can imagine for me are models that would run locally, gather my data, not share it anywhere, and let me mine my stuff for my needs.
