MC.4: Sean Grove's ML Adventures, Generative Web Magic, Copilot's AI Day-to-Day, Vim Meets LLM, and the Remarkable Evolution of ChatGPT 🧭
This week, delve into Sean Grove's machine learning wonders, the magic of v0.dev's generative UI, Microsoft's leap with Copilot, and the prowess of Mistral 7B. Plus, ChatGPT's enhanced senses and the potential of a 770M model outpacing giants.

Modern chaos is a newsletter exploring tech and AI through the journey of a dev agency shifting from services to product design. We share our notes, analysis and experiments.
This is the fourth issue of Modern Chaos. I got Covid this week, I thought it was almost not a thing anymore. I wanted to check the statistics in my country and was surprised to find none on the WHO website. In fact, there are no statistics for other countries either, like the USA and Germany.
I imagine it’s due to data privacy concerns, but still, it feels like it doesn’t exist anymore while in fact we have to live with it.
Anyway, now I’m back and pretty excited to start working on our next project! If you haven’t read my blog post about our “App Grill” process, it’s worth a look, and you’ll get a sneak peek about Alter.

Tech updates & tools
Sean Grove: Explorations in Machine Learning
Impressive GPT hacking experiments from Sean Grove to explore what can be done with large language models. My favorites are GenTalk, a self-writing, editing and speaking tech talks and Conjure, a paradigm UI where UIs are ephemeral and built on-demand. GenTalk | Conjure
v0.dev: Generative Web User Interface
v0 is a generative user interface system by Vercel Labs. It generates copy-and-paste friendly React code based on shadcn/ui and Tailwind CSS. I like the part where you can highlight HTML elements and refine it with a new prompt. VIDEO | Private Alpha
Microsoft Copilot: “everyday AI companion”
It’s happening faster than I thought. Microsoft is pushing Copilot across all the apps, from Windows 11 desktop to Bing. Super interesting to see what the user experience will be like as we are building a similar cross-app AI companion. READ IT
vim + llm = 🔥
It shows a simple and practical use of LLM inside a vim editor. Sometimes you don’t need super integrated stuff, just a hack. It can be replicated on emacs, I will write about this next week. Love it! READ IT
Distilling step-by-step: A 770M Model Outperforming 540B PaLM
The distilling step-by-step mechanism enables a 770M parameter T5 model to outperform the few-shot prompted 540B PaLM model using only 80% of examples in a benchmark dataset for a given task. A model of this size can run on small hardware, super exciting from a data privacy perspective. READ IT
ChatGPT can now See, Hear, and Speak
OpenAI keeps pushing. It’s hard to know what will come in the next 3 years. Are we at the start of an innovation cycle or at the end? It feels like it just starting to me. What do you think? READ IT
Mistral 7B: A New High-Performing Open-Source Model
It seems like we get a new toy to try every week. This model outperforms all currently available open models up to 13B parameters on all standard English and code benchmarks. Need to try asap! READ IT | Demo
