We launched thisanimedoesnotexist.ai/ (TADNE) today: The current leading website showcasing over a million AI-generated images drawn in an anime style. Happy to have helped the amazing efforts of @AydaoAI, @gwern, @arfafax, @theshawwn and other Tensorfork members in creating this

"have you googled this before asking me?" is becoming less and less of an optimal response to many questions with how terrible search results are for most topics now asking an *actual expert* is just not comparable to getting a bunch of clickbait/ads/listicles from a SERP sadly

very relevant: nitter.hu/patio11/status/1鈥 (the obvious difficulty being finding the right query terms to use for fields that you are more foreign to, but the right terms often *do* exist!)
An underrated skill in basically every field is knowing how to structure a Google query such that you get actually responsive information.

on one side of the spectrum you have Professor Facer, who hasn't made a correct prediction in 10 years but wields immense social and political power, and on the other side you have 0xAnimeFemboy who is 2 years ahead of western governments but is marginalized. futarchy fixes this.

messing around with ru-dalle (source code: github.com/sberbank-ai/ru-da鈥) prompt "a happy blonde haired fox anime girl" (in auto-translated Russian) most images are quite messy, these are cherry-picked:

wonder how effective it would be to have a program that takes an anki deck/history as input and auto-generates memory palaces for the cards inside of VR VR spaces definitely map onto memory the same way physical ones do (there's many that I know as well as my own home already!)

just kind of loosely following papers that combine ML with AR/VR, it's hard for me to believe that Meta/FB isn't going to win hard in the long-term
