Although AI techniques could be used to generate images for years, it wasn't until 2022 that AI image generation became popular. I was surprised by how popular.
Many applications are disqualified because they are already popular, like translation, transcription and facial recognition. Other applications are disqualified because their popularity in 2023 wouldn't be surprising (at least to me), like short video generation.
If there is a lot of ambiguity in how this should resolve and the market has at least 5k in total volume, I'll make a poll and use it's results to resolve.
AI applications that have become popular so far were performing well for more than 8 months before gaining popularity. Is there anything currently not popular but reasonably close (other than short video generation)?
@na_pewno If GPT-4’s integrations with Microsoft are successful, I’d be inclined to resolve yes. Microsoft’s search engine and office tools are popular, and I wouldn’t have expected last year that they would deploy integrations with both in 2023. I’m not sure how to judge ‘successful’ though.
Examples of things I would consider clearly surprising: functional robo-chefs, highly adaptable plug and play video game AI, productive research AI, and trading AI making massive amounts of money.
@AmitAmin What do you think about stuff like elicit and metaphor systems search?
@firstuserhere If that kind of thing becomes popular, I think that would count. They weren’t on my radar to play with until just now…
@AmitAmin I'd also add https://www.adept.ai/blog/act-1 ACT-1 to my comment above
