1. Hey there young Spielbergs!

Curious about how AI can be used for film making?

It's still early days, but between text-to-image, text-to-audio and AI-driven animation, building blocks are starting to appear.

Today's thread provides an overview.
🧵👇 ImageImageImage
2. First off, some highlights!

Way back in July @mrjonfinger used @midjourney to produce a coherent short film.

Very solid visuals, but the voices and animation are a bit stilted. We had to rewatch to grok the plot, but it's 100% there once you get it.

3. Another early AI success story is @adampickard's use of DALL-E's to recreate the famous short film "Powers of Ten" by Ray and Charles Eames.

There's no dialog here, but the narrative of the original definitely comes through.

1. Last week @openai finally removed the waitlist for DALL-E!

Of the AI image creation tools out there, DALL-E is arguably the most accessible.

Today's thread provides a hands-on tutorial for new DALL-E users looking to generate visually consistent assets.

Sticker Time!
2. If you've never used DALL-E, head on over and sign up now!

First announced in April, DALL-E is the OG text-to-image ML model. For months, access was extremely limited, but now everyone, including you, can log in and take this dream machine for a spin.
3. If you need inspiration, OpenAI's Instagram is filled with images that a mere 6 month ago would have knocked our collective socks off.

Since then of course, we've all become jaded as new mind-bending tech comes out weekly.

Ah to be young again.…

This week @NVIDIA open sourced the 3D object generation AI model, GET3D. GET3D is a generative model of high quality 3D textured shapes learned from images.

Trained using only 2D images, GET3D generates 3D shapes with high-fidelity textures and complex geometric details.

These 3D objects are created in the same format used by popular graphics software applications, allowing users to immediately import their shapes into 3D renderers and game engines for further editing.

It's Friday and that means it's time for the @aifunhouse Week in Review!

As always, it's been a wild week in #AI!

DreamBooth, Instant NeRF, Make a Video, and more ... let's get in!

1. First up, DreamBooth, a technique from Google Research originally applied to their tool Imagen, but generalizable to other models, allows for fine-tuning of text-to-image networks to allow generation of consistent characters across contexts and styles. Image
2. The results are wild - take a look:

Tomorrow, the International Telecommunication Union votes on its next Secretary General in Bucharest, Romania.

US officials from @POTUS to @ABlinken to @StateCDP have taken an unprecedented interest in the vote of a technical body.

The internet’s future is at stake. 🧵
US candidate @DoreenBogdan is running on a platform of a “Trusted, Connected Digital Future” against Russia’s Rashid Ismailov, a former Telecom Minister and Huawei VP who is likely to support the emerging autocratic view of the future internet.
The @ITU is the world’s oldest UN agency (formerly the International Telegraph Union) and is a technical standards body where engineers and tech companies—but also governments—convene and vote on the protocols for emerging technologies from #6G to #AI.…

1. Last week @OpenAI released Whisper, an open source model for transcribing audio.

Let’s see how you can use Whisper + GPT-3 to quickly summarize text-heavy YouTube vids.

If you're new to ML this is a great tutorial to get hands on and play along.

2. First we'll to use Whisper to transcribe a video we want to summarize.

Whisper is open source and there are already multiple UIs on the web that allow you run it on video and audio.

For YouTube videos, @jeffistyping created a super simple UI.…
3. To transcribe a video, just paste in its YouTube URL and wait for the title and preview image to appear.

In this example, we chose a 10-minute video of @garrytan discussing Adobe's recent $20B acquisition of Figma. Image

Interesting #privacy and #AI project: someone has developed software to match up geolocated Instagram posts with open camera feeds (showing people before/after they posted their Instagram photos)
The AI software automatically identifying people and matching timestamps on Instagram posts, etc. Image
Has to be a popular location with live camera feeds that can be monitored, but interesting nonetheless. Image

Tips on writing a NIH R01 on #AI. In last 6 weeks our group landed 4 @NIH / @theNCI R & U grants on #AI in #imaging & #medicine. I got a number of enquiries about grant writing tips. I share some thoughts below. Also free offer - Happy to review & provide f/b on your S aims page
1. Specific Aims page - Most important page of your proposal. Articulate the clinical unmet need, followed by your unique solution, your preliminary data, brief description of team, your approach/specific aims and most critically your success criteria. Sample SA page below.
2. Significance/Background - Most important section in your narrative. Focus on unmet clinical need. What is the status quo & why is it not sufficient? (cost, tech etc). What is needed ? How will this impact unmet need? Who will be impacted? How many? Who will use tech?

Why do I donate time & money to political candidates? Because I want voters to know about them & win. Donations from candidates go directly to marketing. That’s billboards, TV ads, newspaper ads, booths at events, getting a team to knock doors, & market to 850k-40M people. 🧵
The @USBlockchainPAC has identified 14 candidates across the nation that champion #WEB3 technology. That’s #MetaVerse #DeFi #NFTs #Crypto #SSID #dApps #DLT #DAOs & #ML #AI 🧵
Political contributions are an important fact of life in democracy. Contributing to candidates, campaigns, and organizations that you support is the only way to give them the resources to win, and to effectively advocate for the issues that you care about.
