Humane AI

2023-11-10 18:59:50.42416+01 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

The Fediverse is scoffing at the launch video for this new wearable: Humane officially launches the AI Pin, its OpenAI-powered wearable

We just watched the video, and there's some cool interaction modes (using a projector to put the display on your hand is kinda interesting), but in response to a query, the device proposes watching the April 8, 2024 eclipse from Australia(!) and suggests that there's 15g of protein in a small handful of almonds (.2 to .3g/almond, so maybe it was approximating per cup, and not by the volume in the presenter's hands?).

The real-time translation thing is interesting, but I've been using Google Translate to try to keep up with some of what's going on in Israel right now, and... machine translation does not carry a lot of nuance.

So, interesting concept, skeptical about using LLMs for the back-end.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
