I recently got access to OpenAI's DALL·E 21 text-to-image beta. In short, this AI system can generate images from text prompts, create semantic local edits by selecting an image region and altering your prompt text, or generate variations of uploaded or generated images.

I've been playing with it and will be doing a live demo today in Live 79 and sharing some of my experiments and thoughts on this tool, which is quite impressive.

OpenAI's DALL·E 2 variations of a hand sketch of an Amazon box by Nono Martínez Alonso.

  1. DALL·E 1 was released in early 2021 and DALL·E 2 in 2022. The latter produces more realistic images. Imagen, Google's version of DALL·E, was recently released but hasn't been opened to the public due to concerns about potentially harmful uses of the AI system, e.g., porn, harassment, etc.

In Live 70—I learned about YouTube's Upload Python API, which allows us to programmatically upload high-resolution videos to YouTube from a client application or the command-line interface.

Among other things, we learned how to create a Google Cloud Platform project and create API keys and OAuth 2.0 credentials to authenticate custom applications to different Google APIs. We also saw how to restrict your client id and secret to a specific IP address during testing and how to scope our application to certain API calls (say, uploading videos to YouTube or changing video thumbnails).

Hi, all! I'm a bit behind with adding chapters and summaries about what we did in the live stream, specifically for Live 70 and 71—I'm working on it! There won't probably be live-streaming the first week of May (that's this coming week). But it seems we'll be back at it on Thursday, May 12.

You can watch my three-minute summary of Live 71.

In yesterday's live stream—Live 68—we took a look at the linear regression following Aurélien Géron's Hands-On Machine Learning book. We saw the normal equation, how to calculate the dot product of two matrices and the inverse of a matrix, and saw a few different ways in which, with code, you can solve a linear equation, plus how to do it with Sci-Kit Learn's LinearRegression class.

You can take a look at the Linear Regression Colab notebook.
