😺 Meta creates ChatGPT for audio

PLUS: what Uber, Tinder, and Instacart have in common 🚞

Welcome, humans.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Pete is teaching an 8-week on Nas Academy on how to be more productive using AI. Check out this insane launch video! 📸

Here’s what’s going on in AI today:

  • Meta released AudioCraft, its text-to-audio tool.

  • Uber, Doordash, & Tinder want to put AI in their apps.

  • Medium wants all AI content to be flagged.

  • AI outperformed 2/3 of radiologists in a study.

Meta Open-Sources Audiocraft, It’s Text-To-Audio Tool 🎶

AudioCraft is like ChatGPT but for audio: generate any type of sound imaginable.

Meta just open-sourced the entire damn thing (read: it’s now available for me and you). Here is what’s possible

  1. create any type of music, melody, or soundtrack.

  2. create any sound effect or noise.

  3. break down any sound into its smaller pieces.

Hands down the best AI model for audio (sorry, Goog).

So what’s the big deal?

First, music changes in a big way. Anyone can customize a song, composition, or melody simply by describing it. Try this formula: “a [type of music] track with [type of instrument] at [#] BPM in the style of [musician’s] [specific melody/song].”

Second, it becomes wayyyy easier to create sound effects for things like:

  • films.

  • games.

  • podcasts.

  • video content.

  • ad jingles. I’m lovin’ it!

Why it matters: Meta delivered, and they did it with grace: every second of the 20,000 hours of music used to train AudioCraft has been licensed. Spect.

We’re about to see some truly innovative projects and products built on top of AudioCraft. Here’s the code if you’re a builder. Share your creations with us!

Every Tech Company Wants To Become An AI Company 🏍

Every tech company is eager to infuse its products with AI.

First it was Instacart, which unveiled an AI search tool for food shopping. Soon after, Snap rolled up “My AI”.

Now, the AI fever is catching everyone:

  • DoorDash is building a chatbot to help people order food.

  • Tinder is testing an AI feature that cherry-picks users’ “top” photos.

  • Meta is preparing chatbots for social media engagement.

  • Uber is working on a chatbot for its mobile app.

Why it matters: Every tech company wants to be an AI company to stay ahead of the curve. But AI is only useful if it enhances the user experience.

We’ll see which of these hits the bullseye and which will miss the mark. Let’s just hope this bandwagon doesn’t morph into a web3 2.0 saga. Our wallets will thank us.

Around the Horn 🦄

  • Medium, the blogging platform, is requiring all AI content to be flagged.

  • AI outperformed 2/3 of radiologists, but radiologists' diagnoses did not improve when using AI, according to a study.

  • Check out this practical AI crash course for teachers and students released by Wharton.

  • Instagram is working on new features to disclose when content is AI-generated.

Treats To Try 🍿

We love Andrew Huberman (who doesn’t?), but some of his podcasts run long. Like, 3+ hours long.
