A gap for Claude is a lack of easy sharing. This especially true for artifacts. Non-technical people can create useful little tools, but donā€™t have the knowledge to easily share those with others or have them work sustainably outside of Claude (Devin solves this by using Netify)

Linear growth in the amount of GPT in GPT. And yet Claude and Google seem to have slowed down, increasing their amount of Gemini and Claude by only .5 per release. Exponential growth requires Llama 9 to be released next šŸ˜‰ t.co/MgXEWEM8Cx

When I gave Claude a picture and told it: "ENHANCE (play along, use artifacts)" "More drama ENHANCE: "YES! ENHANCE!" "ENHANCE HAHAHAHA! YES!" Here are the four interfaces it generated. t.co/4x2dLxAOar

High value things for non-coders that LLMs could do today but frontier labs are not doing (maybe because they are all coders): 1) Handle excel sheets as they are in real life: formulas, weird layouts 2) Write directly on PDFs or docs (fill out forms!) 3) Better finance training

"So much depends on the red wheelbarrow, glazed with rain. Claude 3.5 please create a simulation to show me why" I appreciate that the farmer's health declines with no wheelbarrow, but improves fastest when using a red wheelbarrow, glazed with rain because of aesthetics. t.co/3pobFAY0CD

There are some papers finding LLMs are more persuasive than most humans, with unknown consequences for politics. So this paper was some relief, because it suggested super-persuasion didn't scale... ...but I am not convinced their prompting is going to maximize persuasiveness t.co/PdcwChxp13

When you ask Claude 3.5 to make a snake game, it has lots of examples in its training data, but it still does a good job when you ask it to create something novel and complicated: "make an interactive simulation that explains tertius gaudens and robust action" "make it better" t.co/W39B7PKUM0

What can be so hard to grasp with AI systems is their inherent randomness. I gave Claude the prompt "create a webgl artefact that is a social networking simulation, is interactive and explains brokerage" five times Once the sim didn't work, twice it was fine, twice it was great t.co/UKavWdWDLc

Experts in a field are going to be the best users of AI in that field. I put a few examples in the post but I really like using the 10+ page prompt by Glowforge co-founder Dan Shapiro, an expert in company culture, for making job descriptions inspiring. t.co/FqslPLu8T5 t.co/eKaOaGdvai

We are at an interesting point where LLMs are doing stuff that is genuinely astonishing for a next token prediction system, but the stuff it is doing seems reasonable to many: ā€œof course AI can build a teaching simulation and summarize documents and hey look at the crude drawingā€ t.co/K9APHoSZDR
