    I think the real value will come by integrating these ML tools in a daw format that gives you proper creative controls (like stable-diffusion for Krita), https://wavtool.com does this a little bit but it's not quite there. Imagine a drumkit generator where you can automate the latent space, automatic transcription that works, humanizer, etc ...

    Hopefully we get open-source tools that can be integrated into a DAW workflow at some point.

    I think they came in my town once, I didn't go but could hear the vibration from outside xD I'll keep an eye for them.

    What artists are touring currently or in the near future that are really good ? Recently I've seen Ne Obliviscaris, Marcus Miller & Chelsea Wolfe that were awesome, super professional, skilled musicians with good show(wo)man ship. I try to follow stuff on songkick but I often miss out.

    This plugin for SD in Krita is awesome, it allows you to draw and get "instant" (pretty quick) generations from your drawing. I find having it in a full fledge art software instead of a hacky web control center really change the dynamic, you can use the generation just to refine your drawing, it will fix your pose and proportion, show you the muscle, it's fun and makes you want to draw, etc. It's a great learning tool and it makes you feel much more in control than prompt based systems. It's also very well integrated in Krita and easy to setup. I think we're getting pretty close to the "end-product" for that type of models with this.

    Some quick sketches I've made :

    Given that it's still in "invite-only alpha" with very little development, no promotion and no clear future plan it's not surprising it's not thriving. If anything it's surprising it's still so active, although reddit being so bad certainly helps (some lost users randomly end up here via word of mouth).

    I've played with Stable Diffusion and local LLMs but I find them too limited still, I have zero trust in LLMs (too many mistakes) so I have to double check everything and it's not really saving time. Although for code translation from one language to another it was marginally useful. Document retrieval was useless. Stable diffusion is great for one shot images but you can't do much more that (e.g. I tried to train a lora for a character but it's pretty limited). Audio stuff is also quite limited and sounds so so. Unironically the best use case is erotica.

    If I have some boring admin letter to write I might use a GPT though.

    Some good French pop that didn't had much success it seems, even though it's better that most of the country's production.

    You could try Julia :

    ++ Somewhat different paradigm with multiple dispatch, something new to learn compared to other language
    ++ Package/environment manager (you can organize your code into packages and even have a local package registry)
    ++ Interactivity (REPL is super good)
    ++ Fun and easy (to some extend)

    -- Limited compilation capabilities at the moment
    -- Lack of libraries outside of scientific computing

    I think at the end we will need some kind of "internet security number" given by a governmental agency (like a social security number) that needs to be provided to register, comment, etc. The main worry is privacy but I think there's ways to double blind things.

    Julia, people say Python is easy but I find Julia much more consistent and easy to use (looking at you conda/pip).
