John Siwicki is the host of Stack Snacks, a show that aims to make learning about AI simple and fun. He provides insights and commentary on various AI-related topics and shares interesting links and resources with his audience.
In this episode of Stack Snacks, John Siwicki discusses several interesting AI-related topics. He starts by introducing Ideogram, an image-to-text generator that handles text in a unique way. He highlights some of the interesting results it produces, such as generating T-shirt designs and novelty items. John also mentions that Ideogram is free to try, but users should be cautious as their prompts are public-facing.
Next, John talks about OpenAI's guide for teachers on how to use GPT in the classroom. He emphasizes that even though it's targeted at teachers, it provides valuable insights and thought exercises for everyone. The guide covers topics like how GPT works, its limitations, and biases. John encourages his audience to check it out and explore different ways of writing prompts.
Moving on, John discusses Loom AI, a new feature added to the screen recording app Loom. He highlights the various enhancements Loom AI offers, such as automatically generating titles, creating summarizations, adding chapters, and providing editing features similar to Descript. John finds the addition of AI-powered talking points and the ability to generate personalized versions of recordings with variables particularly interesting. He mentions that Loom AI is available as an add-on with a monthly fee.
John then introduces Audio Read, a tool that converts articles into voiceovers. He mentions that what sets Audio Read apart is its ability to generate an RSS feed, allowing users to subscribe to the voiceovers in their podcast player. He sees this as a convenient way to consume articles while on the go.
Lastly, John briefly mentions a new Canva plugin called Chat GPT. Although he couldn't find much information about it, he demonstrates how it integrates with Canva and allows users to create logos based on prompts.
