AI: The future is now

Lot has happened in the last months in the AI field. But we are yet at the beginning of something big. I believe that some of the next unicorns will be related to those business who are able to create value and capture it with a business proposition.

This week, Greg Brockman, one of he OpenAi founders made this tweet:

Advancement and adoption. This is where we are now. Hundreds of applications ar rising right in front of our eyes with exciting achievements that will increase our productivity and creativity.

Just yesterday, my brother Pau Roig sent me this AI application for creating cool presentations in seconds. As many as these tools are, it is yet something that needs to improve, but it already works very efficiently.

Take a look at this test, I just used the prompt: The future of AI, tendencies for the next months. 

And this is what the AI returned:

I’ve been working with presentation templates for years. When you have to present a proposal for a client, or reuse materials from one client to another, that kind of tool will give you a quick hand. 

Of course the presentation is not perfect, but you have something to start with. You have a structure and a couple of ideas you can work with. That’s where we are going, we will end fine tuning AI. That’s why one of my most important New Year’s resolutions is to keep on understanding how AI works. Keeping on educating myself in this field is investing in the future.

There is a huge controversy these days in the social media about considering art something created by an AI. I have no doubt. I stand by the AI. Or better to say, I stand by AI artists, those creative people that use any kind of tool at their disposal to create something memorable. It is art, and sometimes, it’s great Art.

There are some artists that consider themselves artists because they are good at using photoshop. But using AI is cheating? I don’t buy it. 

The problem is more related with the authority, the rights, who can sell something created by an artist that uses AI. But don’t worry, the business model proposition here will find a way. In my opinion, artists will be the owners of the art, it doesn’t matter if they only text 4 lines in a prompt. The relation between the AI artists and AI developers will be settle up when the artist accepts the agreement by using this tool, as we do with any other software. Some will be free, some open source, some will have to pay a subscription or a % of the benefit in the case it becomes selled (here NFTs will be the tech infrastructure that will sustain this kind of marketplace).

While we argue about if this is art or not, let’s play a quick game. Try to find the image created by an AI:

Not feeling lucky? don’t worry, it’s not easy. That’s why the Lovelace test it’s over-passed.

Try this one, it is easier 😉

But don’t get fooled by this toys. The true battle right now it’s between Microsoft (owner of OpenAI/ChatGPT after investing 1.000 M$) and Google. Bing, the annoying seracher of Microsoft during the last years, will integrate the ChatGPT reasoning engine and could beat Google for first time in the history in an epic battle to control one of the most important doors to enter the web. Stay tuned.

Yours in Crypto and AI.
