Anyone actually recording “life events” with AVP? Seems incredibly after the fact but terrible in the moment. Alternative is just the vr mode on iPhone 15?

Excited to launch Superpipe, a framework to build evaluate, and optimize LLM pipelines for structured outputs. Using Superpipe, we've been able to build 10x cheaper pipelines, 10x faster. Latest project with @aman superpipe.ai https://twitter.com/amansplaining/status/1772658940821602700

First non-company hackathon since college this past weekend with @aman @ryo and Andrew Yu (not sure on fc). Builder energy so fun. Built a bot that bids and messages sellers on fb marketplace that are similar to reference images you provide https://youtu.be/Q_XMceMmbak?si=l6ArHqmyR7XlzaQn

Evaluation is all you need. If your goal is to build good AI software, you need to switch from thinking like an engineer to thinking like a scientist. Would love to hear feedback and thoughts. https://www.scharfste.in/evaluation-is-all-you-need-think-like-a-scientist-when-building-ai/

I’m surprised no one is talking about the motion blur when using AVP. The pass through is good but it’s not nearly as seamless as expected given everything I was hearing online before I used

Tried to cast from Vision Pro but find keyboard very hard to use, especially for longer sentences. It’s both remarkable how intuitive some things are and how finicky others are
