I quickly played with OpenAI’s new Text-To-Speech model to check if it’s an alternative to Google’s API. And wow! English is fantastic and even German is not bad. Just some syllables in German have a weird English accent. But even then, it’s still good. But sadly, it’s also a bit costly. Let’s wait a few months until it gets cheaper and better, and you can enjoy my blog’s “Read aloud” feature even more. 😉

ChatGPT Plus?

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

It’s been a while since ChatGPT was introduced to the world, and after the initial excitement, things seem to have settled down. While there’s still daily news about various services and companies integrating the GPT API into their products, the buzz around it has quieted. At least, that’s how it appears to me.

Chris Coyier wrote a post mentioning a Washington Post article that analyzed which websites Google used to train its AI model. And it seems that both my blog and my website (I think I should merge them one day) are used.

Google Bard is a bit too creative. In another chat, where I asked who “Jan-Lukas Else” is, it also said that I developed the “Quarkus programming language”. But this clearly shows the limitations of language models and the current state of AI. Just because the answers sound clever, they are not always right.

I’m currently validating the use of the OpenAI API as a cheaper and more powerful alternative to the Google Translate API. I hope my plans succeed and there will be a new GoBlog plugin with some AI power soon. ✨ So far the OpenAI API is quite easy to use, I thought it would be more complicated. Philipp is already using the API for his diary, another cool idea (which I may copy someday).

Yet another AI application

Published on in ✍️ Posts

AI is currently finding its way more and more into various software. There is ChatGPT, which sometimes feels like an all-knowing human, DeepL uses artificial intelligence not only for its translator, but also for its new tool that improves written text, or Bunny.net provides an API to generate images “on the edge”.

ChatGPT is smart enough to detect what the code in the single minified JavaScript file on my blog front page does. Try it out! 🙃

Ok, it’s also not that complicated to guess by looking at the long string at the beginning… But ChatGPT has figured out what it’s called.

Bunny AI

Published on in 🔗 Links

Bunny.net joined the AI hype and created “Bunny AI” (docs), AI images created on the edge. I tried it out, because it’s currently free during the preview, but somehow I don’t find the generated images aesthetic or I’m just to stupid to write better prompts. I guess the Bunny developers also need some distraction from time to time, because they are working hard on S3 support for Bunny Storage for years already. 🐰
