Lex Fridman interviewing Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI. Interesting bits about GPT's capabilities and OpenAI's goals.

A Retrospective on Paradigms of AI Programming - norvig.com/Lisp-retro.html (Peter Norvig)

In his latest youtube.com/watch?v=zeJD6dqJ5lo, it looks to me like Grant Sanderson has brushed up his Manim (animation engine), maybe just that this video features a lot of Bret Victorish sliding.

The next Jam on Handmade Network seems be very relevant to us: handmade.network/jam

📝 Visibility Jam

Wish I had the time to take part in this. 11yrs later and still nobody has actually made the tools demoed in Inventing on Principle

Chris Maughan 2023-03-28 13:08:00

That is because it is easy to build demos. Working tools that do the right thing in the general case are really hard.

Srini K 2023-03-28 18:46:52

This ^! Demo helps show the vision, but making this happen likely means re-thinking every part of the stack to support this principle of “show your guts!”

Kartik Agaram 2023-03-28 19:09:13

Only thing I'll add is: it's really easy to turn a demo into something that works for you! Unfortunately nobody believes me because they can't experience my things working for them 🥲

Chris Knott 2023-03-28 19:12:09

My hunch is that it's not that hard to make most of the demos "real" in the sense of being real implementations which share the limited scope from IoP

Kartik Agaram 2023-03-28 19:14:24

I meant it as, "something useful to me in my life."

It's true that not everything is easy. I'm still far away from reproducing inkandswitch.com/potluck for myself: merveilles.town/@akkartik/109293317013542368

But I'll get there. More generally, I think "working product for myself" is an excellent intermediate step between "demo" and "multitenant product". And going by 💬 #of-end-user-programming@2023-03-28T18:13:25.608Z, it's possible that's all we need.

Darklang is going all in on AI/GPT

blog.darklang.com/gpt

Jess Martin 2023-03-28 15:27:18

This is a rather startling post, from end-to-end.

Jess Martin 2023-03-28 15:27:49

I liked this part:

Darklang's major advantage remains the same: the holistic or integrated nature of the platform, language, editor, and infrastructure. Darklang's major features: Deployless, Invisible Infrastructure, and Trace-Driven Development, were all difficult before Dark, because they occurred at the intersection points of the editor, language and infra. By removing that intersection in Darklang, these features were very obvious and fell out fairly naturally.

What are the intersection points in AI-generated code? Well, look at what Copilot is building: Copilot Chat in the IDE, Copilot for Pull Requests, Copilot for Docs, and Copilot-cli. Super exciting, but those seem like 4 different products, meaning a lot of intersection points with existing workflows, code bases and production deployments which we have the potential to remove.

Jess Martin 2023-03-28 15:29:21

What might an AI-first environment look like? DarkLang mentions "the holistic or integrated nature of the platform, language, editor, and infrastructure." This feels right, because AI that can instrument all of these pieces will be more effective and helpful.

The article also suggests that a strong, static type system might keep LLM hallucinations in check because they highlight logical inconsistencies.

It's welcome here. It's fine. We don't mind. But it's better ~over there~ .

[March 28th, 2023 3:18 PM] ivanreese: There's so much talk of AI. It's overwhelming the community. The threads are unspooling, bodies piling up in the streets, thoughts flowing in a turgid stream like blood laced with nanotechnology.

I've created an <#C050QK4917D|of-ai> channel to contain the inflection. Gather the hyped there, the frothing mouthes, the coping, the nerd sniped. Get out of the town square, get into my self-driving car, ye damned.
