So many things happened over the past week that I think that the entire thing is basically a blur – way too many things to even think about any individual one of them in clear detail.
For instance, we’ve got GPT-4 on ChatGPT alongside punishing rate limits that basically make the thing unusable after 25 prompts:
…But then you also have the epically awesome outputs that come out from the thing that make you realize that it’s perfectly understandable why it is that people are interested in using this thing to the hilt.
Then, you’ve got Midjourney V5 coming out, alongside natural language prompting, and this whole range of insane looking tessellations that can be created just with the software itself.
I have plenty of thoughts about all of these things and ultimately everything that’s happened this past week, but the most cool of these things, I think, was probably the Microsoft 365 Future Of Work event.
Too long to watch?
Honestly, I think that you’d be depriving yourself there, but a couple of things:
A) It’s wild to imagine that in the future, all of us will essentially just be creating presentations and documents by doing nothing but just using natural language in order to communicate.
B) I never actually thought that I’d think that Microsoft would be cool during my lifetime!
It’s been a pretty incredible week to say the very least, and although it started with a bit of a hiccup on my part, I can’t wait for the next ones ahead 🙂
Incidentally, I also just started a small project in collaboration with my freelancer and also in alignment with my focus on education; if you’d be interested to check it out, head here 🙂
