Sharing your place with someone in tz1and

First thing is first, you should take a look at the controls help in the bottom left. This has all the information you need to get around tz1and. If you want more tips and tricks on getting around tz1and, I’ve embedded Digital Coleman’s tutorial. Please also check out Digital Coleman’s art. Sharing your place with someone is actually pretty easy. First, you will need to navigate to your place. I am on place 22. You can type the following URL in Chrome, FF, or Brave https://tz1and.com/explore?placeid=22 Also, you […]

Placing your items in tz1and

After you navigate to https://www.tz1and.com/explore, the first thing I like to do is hit settings. It’s the cog icon in the top left before you “Click to enter”. Once you hit the cog, you’ll see the next screen. It’s really up to you, but I set my “Triangle limit” to 10000 and the Model file size to 25. In some cases, you may need to set them even higher to see some artists’ work in tz1and. Also in this case, I suggest checking “Display place bounds” since you […]

Minting on tz1and.com

There are actually two ways to mint on tz1and.com. Minting on the main page is actually easier on your machine if you have an older one like I do. You can bring up the same popup window in world by pushing the M key, but if your machine is as old as mine, your fan will be running while you are minting haha 1. Assuming you understand the basics of the Tezos ecosystem, once you connect your Tezos wallet, you can click the “Mint” menu item to get […]

tz1and.com – 3d modeling, sculptures, architecture, art, Tezos, and NFTs

Haven’t blogged in a long time… But, tz1and.com deserves a huge shout out!! After experimenting in eth, I stumbled upon H=N over a year ago. I was so excited to see affordable, amazing art because of Tezos. I could try to name all the incredible artists, but it would take forever so I won’t. Some artists have been around forever, some are new to NFTs. Eventually, H=N rose to be the most popular NFT art platform, and some artists were flourishing. Then, all of a sudden it disappeared. […]

ThisGifDoesNotExist.com

We’re starting to work on GANs and like many other researchers, we can animate a face. This is very interesting because any inanimate object can become animate through training. Despite the fear of deep fakes, we can take cartoons and make them have expressions. Add AI to voice and we can make the robot above say whatever we want it to… At the moment, we’ve refrained from adding voice and prefer to make funny AI gifs. Please check out more at https://thisgifdoesnotexist.com, which builds on This person does […]

Artificial Intelligence (AI) rewrites the Metamorphosis

OpenAI’s text editor is impressive but still requires some editing. Luckily, some of our founders write. In this case, we took a classic and applied OpenAI’s text generator. It’s a short story, much more brief than Franz Kafka’s version, and it steps through a modern day version of Gregor’s life. The ending is much more dramatic than the original. It is interesting to see how A.I. adapts stories and brings them to life. You will notice the characters are more modern with laptops and computers, but at the […]

Beautiful Incoherence – the 1st Sci-Fi Novel generated by Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)

One of our founders, R.M. Gonzales, has published the first ever Science Fiction novel generated by AI. R.M. admits that editing was needed, but nearly 100% of the text was generated by fine tuning OpenAI’s text generator. The 345M model was used because the 774M model is not supported for refinement on modern GPUs or TPUs, according to Google Colaboratory. The novel could well be considered a collection of short stories, and the fine tuning was established utilizing R.M.’s first novel, Holo.Wars: The Black Hats and public works. […]

Identifying Tuberculosis with Artificial Intelligence (AI)

We’ve started experimenting with AI, and it’s very interesting to see the results. The use case for this experiment is identifying TB based off of 100 images. Google’s AI platform is a decent but expensive platform. It costs nearly $200 to use their AutoML Vision Beta, but it’s worth it if you don’t want to deploy training Python algorithms on local or in the cloud. Essentially, you will use Google algorithms to train images, and it’s getting to be user friendly. We provided some feedback to them, but […]
