The Prompt Engineering Podcast
00:00 - 07:25
- The Prompt Engineering Podcast focuses on teaching the art of writing effective prompts for AI systems.
- The hosts, Ben Glickstein and Doug Carr, are filmmakers and immersive artists who explore AI from an artistic perspective.
- They discuss the workflow for artists using AI and how it impacts the definition of art.
- Prompting techniques have evolved from vague interactions with limited language to more organized and cohesive conversations with AI systems.
- AI can now help organize story elements and generate entire arcs for storytelling.
- Ben started learning about prompting through visual prompts, while Doug initially explored chat bots and brainstorming exercises with AI.
- They mention various AI tools like Starry AI, Wambo, Dolly, Stable Diffusion, and Chat GPT that they have used for prompting.
- Refining prompts is an iterative process where results matter more than the specific prompt itself.
- For coding-related prompts, Ben uses CODEV prompt in Unity to test and refine his code by interacting with Chat GPT for error correction.
- For image-related prompts using Stable Diffusion, Ben finds image-to-image control net more useful than prompt refining.
AI Advancements in Creative Tasks
06:58 - 14:16
- Image to image in stable diffusion is when you use an existing photo as a guide to create a new image with specific modifications.
- ControlNet creates a depth model of an image, allowing for isolation and control over specific elements.
- AI advancements in dealing with elements on a timeline are enabling the creation of videos using stable diffusion and ControlNet.
- Mid-journey has similar capabilities to stable diffusion but offers less control and advancement rate.
- Prompting is a jumping off point that guides the language model's understanding of the desired output.
- The amount of information provided to the language model significantly impacts its understanding and response.
- Feeding GPT-4 more information results in more dynamic, nuanced, and specific discourse.
- GPT can be used collaboratively with humans for creative projects like writing a novella.
- AI provides structure and rails for various creative endeavors, such as writing books or creating business plans.
AI Language Models and Decision-Making
13:53 - 20:37
- AI language models like chat GPT can provide valuable insights and information for building a company.
- There are new language models emerging that are almost as good as chat GPT but trained at a fraction of the cost and time.
- Different variations of automatic chat GPT systems exist, but their accuracy and reliability can vary.
- Some language models, like Google bard, may provide incorrect or misleading information.
- Language models are not yet reliable for important tasks or decision-making.
- Using AI for creative tasks, like generating character lines, can yield interesting results.
- Deciding when to use AI versus human intelligence is an ongoing challenge with varying effectiveness and potential errors.
AI in Content Creation and the Economy
20:15 - 27:29
- AI generation is disrupting the economy and threatening traditional ways of making money.
- The VFX industry is testing software that integrates AI, allowing for faster and easier creation of shots.
- AI tools can turn pieces of artwork into 3D characters for scenes, reducing the time and effort required.
- Motion capture data can now be taken from iPhone videos and applied to characters in Blender, eliminating the need for expensive equipment.
- The use of AI in content creation lowers the bar to entry and allows individuals to do more creatively.
- With an influx of content due to faster production processes, there may be a thin line between quality content and spam.
