As I sit down to write this blog post, I am filled with excitement and pride for the work that I am currently doing. My main goal with this post is to summarize my current projects and accomplishments so that I can look back on them in the future and remember the amazing things that I was a part of.

Right now, I am working on two research projects focused on conversational AI, artificial voices, and supervised learning for categorization and summarization. One of my recent accomplishments includes an update on an incredible artificial voice, which I then used to produce videos explaining its new possibilities to my colleagues. I also showcased different use cases, including how this technology can improve customer experience and service quality, and help automate existing video workflows.

How Large Language Models are Changing the Game in Conversational AI

I am continually amazed by the impact that large language models have on conversational AI. In fact, tests with dynamic answers based on personal information have been extremely successful, allowing us to provide example data and ask for variations in different directions. The quality of these variations is incredibly high, making it possible to use them in live systems.

Reproducing results in generative AI is currently a significant focus for me. Whether it’s OpenAI’s Davinci or AlephAlphas Luminous, writing styles and summarization are often challenging. However, I am making progress in this area, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for getting some kind of reproducible results.

One of the most exciting areas of my work is using large language models and machine learning tools to categorize materials and identify different production steps from raw materials to consumer products. By following the supply chain, I can identify disturbing events and predict price changes. I also enjoy analyzing stock market data and exchange rates, inflation rates, and interest rates, and matching these data with categorized materials. Ultimately, my goal is to summarize all of these functionalities in easy-to-use UI designs.

Exploring the Power of AI for Image Generation and Reproducibility

One of the areas that I have been focusing on is Midjourney, a tool that delivers better results by providing example images generated by AI itself. This technology has proven to be incredibly useful in improving the quality of generated images, and I have been working on implementing it into my projects. With Midjourney, I have been able to generate high-quality images for various use cases, including in marketing materials and product design.

Additionally, text-to-image prompting has been a significant focus for me. I am continually experimenting with different prompts to get the best possible results. It is fascinating to see how a simple change in the prompt can produce vastly different results. While it can be challenging to get reproducible results, I am making steady progress, and I am confident that I will achieve my goal of reproducibility in the near future.

Overall, these technologies hold incredible potential for a wide range of applications. As AI continues to evolve, I am excited to see what new possibilities emerge, and I am committed to being at the forefront of this exciting field.
