I made a video explaining working with @OpenAI's API and my app AI Channels. https://vimeo.com/427641118
If you can't tell, I'm very excited about @OpenAI's API. I've been playing with it for the last few months and it feels like I got a glimpse inside of a friendly alien spaceship. Their beta is here: https://beta.openai.com Read about my experience: https://andrewmayneblog.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/the-aichannels-project/
One of the coolest things with @OpenAI's API is that you can use it to simplify bigger concepts or Wikipedia articles. I made a mini-app based on this for explaining things to students like quantum computers and historical events.
If you want to pull a link, a keyword or determine where to look for more information from a block of text, you can just write a tiny script and @OpenAI's API would do all the work. You give it instructions almost like you would a person (who takes things very literally.)
If you want to get on the beta list for AI Channels, my AI chat application the link is at the bottom of the page: https://aichannels.app
Playing with @OpenAI's API and seeing how smart it was about picking up context, I started using it to write dialog and tell interactive stories. It can pick up different character voices and give them agendas. https://andrewmayneblog.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/the-aichannels-project/
When I gave @OpenAI's API a list of my favorite books, it added 8 new ones, including 5 others I loved. This was without any special training.
I can give @OpenAI's API a partial list of superheroes and it will add to the list figuring out that it's: 1. A list 2. Superheroes 3. All DC superheroes https://andrewmayneblog.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/the-aichannels-project/
For the last few months I've been using @OpenAI's new API to have virtual conversations with people like H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Virtual Neil Gaiman said this when I asked about writing sci-fi and fantasy: “What if you went to Stockholm and you got mugged by Darth Vader?”
Here's the background on AI Channels, my project that lets you interact with virtual characters in stories and talk to historical figures: https://andrewmayneblog.wordpress.com/2020/06/11/the-aichannels-project/
I'm extremely excited to be working with @OpenAI and their new API. You can check out AI Channels, my new AI chat application here: https://beta.openai.com

I feel bad for the aliens when they show up. They’ll probably be expecting us to make a big deal about it. Instead we’ll all be making exhausted sighs and rolling our eyes going “Oh great, now this.”
2020 already feels like the longest decade ever.

If someone replies to me on Twitter, even if they’re disagreeing with me but civil, I’ll hit the ❤️ button to show that I appreciate the discussion.
I think some entrepreneurs got lucky and if we rolled back time they’d never have achieved the same level of success. Others, legit serial entrepreneurs who launch successful companies, I think would almost always end up on top. Some skills are like being born a great athlete.
Watch the HBO documentary The Inventor on Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos and run this thought experiment: What if she had chosen a profession where exaggeration doesn’t have the same penalty as lying about medical devices? Would she run a film studio? Senator? Social network CEO?
One of my favorite parts from The Inventor is where behavioral economist @danariely illustrates how we’re more likely to lie (and more convincingly) when we believe it’s in service of a good cause. This doesn’t just explain startup culture, it’s non-profits, politics, etc.
I enjoyed Alex Gibney’s doc The Inventor on Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos. I wish he went into the start and co-founder Sunny Balwani – who Holmes met at 19. Also, don’t trust a WSJ reporter to conceal your identity. One source had $400k in legal bills because of sloppiness.

The wonderful part about @SpaceX webcasts is the hosts are actual engineers.
Here are the results so far of my inner voice question. Of the over 1000 responses 14% say they don’t hear a voice in their head. A number of people replied with more details. For example @_darthzombie doesn’t have an inner voice but prefers audiobooks.
They just told the astronauts the cameras are off and where to find the lens caps so they can change out of their flight suits. Insert Onlyfans joke here...

My favorite selfie ever. #LaunchAmerica
I remember standing in the @SpaceX factory looking up at a massive landing leg and trying to process that rockets could land now. Next to it was the first Dragon spacecraft to reach space. Most impressive was the thousands of people there all working towards a common goal.
Amazing! #LaunchAmerica
With SpaceX launches they load the oxidizer last because they use super-cooled “densified” liquid oxygen to give even more boost.
Watch the NASA/SpaceX launch right now: https://youtu.be/bIZsnKGV8TE
These NASA/SpaceX astronauts have sat quietly in the spacecraft for several hours without touching their phones. That’s basically a super power in my book. I’d be climbing the walls by now.
Same. If I do something non-verbal for a while my working vocabulary decreases and I get bad at small talk. It’s why I’m wary of permanent labels. One week I’m a loquacious extrovert. Another and I’m a quiet introvert. https://twitter.com/betweenfailures/status/1266802417875681282
Asking about inner monologue (the voice in your head) or other ways we think can be quite interesting. Most of my spelling mistakes are from me typing the way a word sounds in my mind. https://twitter.com/andrewmayne/status/1266801507615166464

From @anya_hurlbert: “Back to the gumballs. Some ‘colour-blind’ people see the marked balls on the left as green. Indeed these are the same the ‘Normies’ call green in their view of the same image. Perception honed!” https://twitter.com/anya_hurlbert/status/1266672911340929024
That wasn’t meant as a trick question! I have a friend who went 50 years before he realized he was color blind. He discovered this while watching a presentation by Dr. Hurlbert, where she also pointed out he could see differences we could not. https://twitter.com/anya_hurlbert/status/1266474473697546240
This is what Dr. Hurlbert’s image shows. While “normal” color-sighted people process colors one way, someone like Christopher with red/green color blindness can actually see differences we can’t. https://twitter.com/anya_hurlbert/status/1266474473697546240 https://twitter.com/TrustTheVoid/status/1266484135629131784
