We just passed 1,000 members, a month and a half after reaching 100 members. This is an important milestone because it shows that there’s interest in such a format for an AI community.
Now that we reached this second milestone, I think it makes sense for me to share the vision I have for this community and where I would like it to go next.
As of writing this, there are 2,400 AIs in our database, 1,000 of which were launched in the past month alone. The speed at which the AI market is moving is truly breathtaking and there’s a chance it will get even faster.
We recently got the ChatGPT API (10x cheaper than GPT-3), which has already started to unlock a whole new generation of AI apps. Now it looks like we’re close to the release of GPT-4 and Midjourney 5. Stability AI is also working on an open source LLM, which could potentially lead to another Stable Diffusion-like “Cambrian explosion” of apps. Perhaps that’s why the ChatGPT API was priced so cheap (to avoid being disrupted again as it happened with DALL-E).
The point is, the market is moving so fast and there is so much upside both for founders and society overall that we’re much better off sharing our knowledge and playing a positive sum game. This is especially true for small startups and indie makers.
This forum should reflect this principle. So from now on, we’ll focus much more on sharing knowledge. We’ll welcome and reward posts about topics such as:
- How to build an AI app
- How to use specific APIs
- Marketing tips for founders
- Networking between founders
Also, if you have ideas for topics that would be useful for AI founders, post them below or just go ahead and create them :).
