Maggie Appleton talks with us about her work at Elicit, working with large and small language models, how humans vet the responses from AI, the discussion around the Soggoth meme in AI, using Discord as UI, what to do if your boss wants AI in your app, and why does she call her blog a digital garden?
Shawn Wang joins us to talk about his work in AI, why prompt engineering is not what you need to focus on, how the scope of AI is bigger than any one of us, how to deal with the consistency of AI, and how to make use of AI in your product or app.
Do you listen at 2x? Do Chris and Dave sound weird at normal speed IRL? How searching compares to using AI, chatbots kind of suck at context, getting a designer to work with developers at an agency, what happened to content visibility, and how to best build a design system using web components.
There's a special guest on the show who takes aim at the billionaires in web dev, do we know better than the algorithm for news, why is AI training data such a secret, Chris and Dave discover JetBrains, monorepo struggles, and SVG drawing tools.
When will AI be able to tell you the risk / reward of cleaning up trees? Are conferences back? Bringing fidgets to the web, internet as an anxiety machine, and Chris is working on talk on modern CSS in real life.
