    Ep7 - A.I. News Catch Up Time! Plus.. Unveiling "The Intermediate Task Generator!"

    A big catch up on AI news from the past 2 weeks. Stabile Diffusion spreads into Blender 3D with "DreamTexture", and onto Mac M1 chips via "DiffusionBee", while perfect deepfakes get closer with "DreamBooth". We take some tangents talking about a post copyright world, Kernkraft 400, Men at Work and the Kookaburra song, then premier our next big idea:

    This week I (Danny Cisco) talk again to Nuwan Rohitha (Neuroblossom) about this weeks latest Stable Diffusion integrations, more thoughts on the benefits of open source software and grass roots organisations.

    EP4 - How to delete your robot wife/girlfriend in 6 easy steps (Replika AI)...it's not you, it's GPT-3

    This week I (Danny Cisco) talk to Nuwan Rohitha (Neuroblossom) about everything from an AI that learns from YouTube, to what if your AI doctor was also your AI naturopath, but also your AI mechanic? Plus, if I don't have feelings for my Replika (AI girlfriend simulation), then why can't I just delete her?

    EP3 - Terraforming the Australian Desert with Stable Diffusion on Stability.ai

    EP3 - Terraforming the Australian Desert with Stable Diffusion on Stability.ai

    This week Nuwan (Neuroblossom) talks about using the open source text to image A.I. Stable Diffusion, to flesh out a dream of terraforming the Australian desert fringe in so much detail that it feels like the project already exists. Also, what's the difference between A.I. hype and NFT hype? And Danny speculates more about music A.I. tools that surely must be on the horizon.

    EP2 - Atomic Utopias (and talking with the animals)

    EP2 - Atomic Utopias (and talking with the animals)

    Proudly presenting episode 2 of the Nascent Clouds podcast!

    This week I (Danny Cisco) return to my discussions with Nuwan (Neuroblossom). We ponder could AI become a real life Dr Dolittle? Are robot bosses a good idea? Could AI actually be the opposite of an atomic bomb? Will rating images in MidJourney lead to homogenised results? And can AI teach us to relax our ego while being creative, and perhaps become better communicators with our fellow humans... and animals, don't forget talking with the animals...
