Welcome back, Superhuman

The best part about vetting hundreds of AI tools every month is that every now and again we come across one that seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie. We discovered a tool just like that over the weekend and we’re sharing our guide on how to use it below.

How to generate high quality music with AI

ChatGPT can write like a real human but now a new AI tool can create entire songs that sound just like the real thing. Here’s how to create any song you like with a few clicks:

  • Go to the Suno website. We’ve previously covered the Suno plugin but this is a whole new level in terms of quality.

  • Sample some of the songs on the page.

  • Tap on make a song in the top right of the screen.

  • On the next page, navigate to Create in the bar on the left and create an account.

  • Explain what kind of song you’d like to create in the Song Description box and press Create.

To get more accurate songs, describe what the song is about, what genre it’s from, as well as instruments and other variables.

AI for the physical world

Most major LLMs know the internet like the back of their hands. They’ve “read” more books than we could ever hope to in a lifetime. But feed them some data about your home or car and they might not know what to make of it.

A new company called Archetype is trying to tackle that problem: It wants to make AI useful for more than just interacting with and understanding the digital realm. The startup just unveiled Newton — “the first foundation model that understands the physical world.”

What’s it for? A warehouse or factory might have 100 different sensors that have to be analyzed separately to figure out whether the entire system is working as intended. Newton can understand and interpret all of the sensors at the same time, giving a better overview of how everything’s working together. Another benefit: You can ask Newton questions in plain English without needing much technical expertise.

How does it work?

  • Newton collects data from radar, motion sensors, and chemical and environmental trackers

  • It uses an LLM to combine each of those data streams into a cohesive package

  • It translates that data into text, visualizations, or code so it’s easy to understand

Archetype has already experimented with some practical applications: In one experiment, Newton opened the trunk of a car because it saw the driver was carrying an armful of groceries. It can be used to detect if a package has been damaged during delivery. And it might one day use health data to determine how well a patient has recovered from surgery.

Prompt: Act like an experienced personal trainer who knows the best techniques. Describe a set of stretches and exercises that are proven to help ease back pain.

You can adapt the prompt to your needs. For example, you can specify how much time you’d like to stretch for, and detail what equipment you have on hand. You can even ask the model to tailor the exercises to your favorite playlist.
