Beyond OpenAI APIs
Recorded Jul 9, 2023
Kerri and Ash kick things off by talking about their 4th of July celebrations. Also they talk about learning Japanese and not learning German.
Music ML Update
Kerri has some follow-up regarding a recent episode on music and ML.
Topics covered include:
Kerri notes how these tools today can be great for idea generation, but won't necessary write your albums for you... yet.
Going beyond OpenAI APIs
Ash is interested in exploring beyond calling OpenAI APIs for creating smart features.
On reason for the timing of this exploration is that Ash's team at Nylas is sponsoring WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Berlin and his team needs an AI tool that doesn't require a credit card when running a workshop.
Hugging Face joins the chat...
Hugging Face—which Ash will refer to as the GitHub for AI models—is quite useful with its free tier.
You can decide for yourself by checking out the LangChain docs.
Also... LocalLlama is something Ash and Kerri want to play with.
Ash refrained from talking about his new Mac Studio in the last episode. He gets into it a little more in this one.
Our co-hosts marvel at comparing their lived experiences with MacBooks on Intel i9 vs Apple Silicon M1 vs a Mac Studio with M2 Ultra. Nothing scientific here in the comparison, but DiffusionBee speed gets discussed.
Kerri and Ash talk about their different approaches to cable management:
- Kerri: avoid
- Ash: obsess
