Yesterday, I experimented with Whisper to understand what’s needed to develop a voice chat bot. The biggest challenge is that it struggles to determine when to start talking, often resulting in long, awkward pauses. Sometimes, it even interrupts me before I’ve finished speaking.

I applied to Meta for the second time. Wish me luck.

I am wondering if Mark Zuckerberg is real on his announcements. Is he AI generating announcements?

I have been a prompt engineer for a long time before AI existed; I used to use the DOS prompt. πŸ˜›

Interestingly, the same thing is happening with AI-generated music. I can sense the ‘AI-ness’ in GPT-generated text, I can see it in AI-generated images, and now I can hear it in AI-generated music.

I am sure Mark Zuckerberg has a roadmap to the Metaverse he is building, but from an outside perspective, it is very murky. He invested a lot of money and effort into the VR headset; just now, they announced releasing the “open source?” Meta Horizon OS.

In the message, they stat

I went to the shop to do a tire rotation on my car. It is a small shop with a little waiting room, mechanics covered in grease running around, and mechanical noises. It feels normal, like the time before the pandemic.

It also felt strange, precisely because of its normalcy. We h

I have a standing desk and quite often I find myself standing in front of a lowered desk and working, just because I don’t want to commit to standing, but I can’t sit anymore. LOL

Darn, ChatGPT just trolled me; I was debugging some issue with the Linux app, and it recommended me to run sudo systemctl restart dbus, which rebooted my laptop.

When I use command-line tools, they naturally create presets for me in the bash history. So, I only need to figure out the command arguments once, and everything is accessible with the Ctrl+R keyboard shortcut. GUI apps don’t have that luxury; every repetitive task requires a mil

I have made my opinion about FSD (supervised) clear. From a consumer standpoint, I don’t think it’s worth $100/month. In its current state, I wouldn’t pay even $20/month. I don’t use it for my daily commute because it doesn’t learn from its own mistakes and makes the same mistake

I am running Meta AI and ChatGPT4 side by side, and they are very comparable. Sometimes Meta AI generates better results, and it is so fast. I am considering canceling my subscription to save $20 per month.

One thing I just remembered during the teeth extraction: I had a bunch of tools in front of my face, and at some point, I started worrying they would drop some tool in my eyes. I noticed the assistant had protective glasses, and I was trying to ask for those glasses, but nobody w

I just came back from the wisdom teeth removal procedure. I am still in kind of twilight zone, but while the memory is fresh, I want to share my experience. After all the paperwork, I got a mouthwash, and then sat on the surgical chair. They put a device to measure the blood pres

The llama.cpp developers and maintainers are rocking and rolling. Yesterday at night, I updated the code, and it’s so fast. I changed the backend from CUBLAS to CUDA, and it’s much faster. Great job, guys!

My little fellow wisdom teeth are out.

Meta is the real OpenAI. We are living in such an exciting time.

Tomorrow I am going to have my wisdom teeth removed. Let’s spend some time with them while they are still part of my body. 😒 They did nothing throughout all these years, and quite often they were a pain in my month, but I still like them.

I just realized that American marks A, B, C, D, F are hexadecimal digits; now I need to figure out what to do with this knowledge.

Always take into account game submission failure; in my AAA studio, we routinely fail submissions for small or sometimes big oversights. It is not a big deal; just fix things up and resubmit.

We are living in a crazy world where AI can generate fully produced songs faster than I can order my lunch online.

Tesla is laying off 10% of its workforce, about 14,000 people. No comments.

I went to the dentist today, my first visit in 20 years. I’m not bragging about it; it just happened due to different priorities.

Of course, I had a reason: I was experiencing tooth pain. The doctor examined me and found it was a wisdom tooth, so she recommended extraction, whic
