⚡ Can AI Create My Powerpoints?

Thoughts on real world & bosses vs utopia

Electric Dreams

Good day. It’s 2023 and the situation is as follows:

  • Everyone’s talking about ChatGPT

  • Everyone’s reading about the ~5 years worth of AI advances happening daily

  • Everyone’s overwhelmed

It’s like the company’s kicked off thirty discussions, but nobody’s followed up. Consider this your follow-up. Your reckoning. JK

Electric Dreams will investigate and share weekly reviews for AI tools, tips and save your time searching for what works and what doesn’t.

Cheers from your intrepid investigator,

Tome.app - Beautiful ai-generated presentations

  • Tome is positioning itself as the new Ai-powered storytelling format. You type something and it’ll autogenerate a presentation about it.

  • I asked it to autogenerate tips for growing an ai newsletter (asking for a friend). The content itself was okay but not mind-blowing.

  • The experience however is super smooth. Drag and drop and auto-formatting are a delight.

  • Possible dealbreaker: it doesn’t export to powerpoint. Or keynote. Or anything. The CEO says, “a lot of the magic in Tome is live data and interactivity”. Your coworkers might disagree. In any case, users can share a live link (example).

  • Check it out if you’re interested in a powerpoint replacement and your audience is tech-savvy

  • Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️☆☆

Postwise - Write viral tweets with AI

  • Speak fluent viral twitter. Very easy to use and could be very helpful if you’re looking to grow your Twitter audience!

  • Great for content creators

  • Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Promptpal Al - The best prompts to get the most out of ChatGPT

  • ChatGPT is only as good as your prompts, and its launch sprouted a ton of “prompt library” applications. This is one of them.

  • Instead of using it as a reference, I suggest you read through some to understand what makes a good prompt, there’s a pattern.
    1. Provide context
    2. Hype ChatGPT up, i.e. telling it how smart it is by adding “you are the world’s smartest man” et cetera
    3. ???
    4. Profit

EditGPT - Easily proofread, edit, and track changes to ChatGPT

  • 📝 It’s ”track changes” for ChatGPT and, just like its Word-equivalent, it’s useful and makes you wonder why ChatGPT doesn’t just have it built-in.

  • Great for anyone who writes, proofreads or otherwise uses words

  • Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

😎 New & Cool - stay in the know

📚 Watch, Learn, Read, Listen, …

  • YouTube: How do LLMs like ChatGPT work? - great 10 min video explaining the basics in a way that you won’t fall asleep. 

    I personally recommend watching this and then retorically asking people “do you actually know how ChatGPT works?” and then answering your own question, baffling everyone with your intelligence. You’re welcome.

  • YouTube: How ChatGPT is Trained - kind of like a followup to the above if you’re hungry for more.

  • Podcast: Sequoia Capital’s Pat Grady and Sonya Huang on Generative AI, Nvidia AI podcast - Pat and Sonya offer a great take on the evolution of generative AI and how small companies compete with large ones in this growth area.

👀 Three are AI-generated, one is real. Do you know which?

DM me your guesses.

Next week

  • Text to video - our tech overlords Meta and Google have made very cool text-to-video apps, but they’re private (boo). I’ll check out some of what us plebs have access to next week.
