One of our favorite Twitter influencers who creates great content about artificial intelligence The SamurAI www.twitter.com/samuraipreneur Embarking on a journey into the depths of the artificial intelligence world and exploring the creative power of this universe can be a real adventure, not just for an engineer but also for an artificial intelligence enthusiast. Today, we invite you to this exciting journey through the eyes of an engineer who not only develops systems with his own code but also automates processes. This AI influencer, whose interest in the artificial intelligence universe began with documentaries and films but transitioned into a true love affair with the launch of ChatGPT, shares significant milestones in his career. This interview provides a valuable perspective from an influencer who has left his mark on the world of artificial intelligence. Are you ready to embark on a journey with SamurAI in the universe of artificial intelligence? What do you say? 1📚 Could you provide some background information about your life before you entered the world of AI?


I work as an engineer where I code, develop and automate systems and processes.

I’ve always been a tech enthusiast and when I first heard about artificial intelligence several years ago, it was both scary and very exciting at the same time. And with the launch of ChatGPT last year, I became addicted. 2🕵️ How did you take your first steps into the realm of artificial intelligence, and what initially sparked your interest in this field?


I’ve read a lot about AI through the years, but my first steps into utilizing it was last year with the launch of ChatGPT. Interest came through documentaries and films years ago.

3🚀 Can you recall the first AI tools you encountered? How did you come across them, and what were your initial impressions?


Besides ChatGPT, I remember using Listnr (text-to-speech) and Midjourney. I’ve also used Canva for some years, which now has a lot of AI features.

I heard of Midjourney from Twitter/newspapers, and Listnr was just a Google search I think :)


First impressions with Midjourney was that it was crap, haha! But then I realized that this is completely new, and will for sure evolve fast, and just get better and better. But I had no idea that it would evolve that fast as it did. "I’ve always been a tech enthusiast and when I first heard about artificial intelligence several years ago, it was both scary and very exciting at the same time. And with the launch of ChatGPT last year, I became addicted." 4🧠 When explaining your AI-related work to someone unfamiliar with AI tools, how do you simplify the explanation?


This one I find very hard myself! Even my girlfriend struggles to understand it. From prompts to AGI, no-code, automation, generative AI, GPTs, builders++. It’s so much new stuff, and very hard to cope. Even for myself.

I’m telling them that I’m learning, sharing and educating others my knowledge through Twitter (X). I’m also telling that it’s now possible to create so many incredible things without even knowing how to code.


I don’t think this was simplifying it, so that’s probably the reason they don’t understand much, haha.

5📖 Whose insights or expertise in the AI field do you find most valuable for your own learning and growth?


Wow, a hard one, it’s so many. But for my growth on Twitter I must say that Ratan Chahar has been a huge inspiration to me.

For learning, I’ve learned a lot from Paul Couvert, he has some great AI guides.

For my early visuals with Midjourney, I learned a lot from Chase Lean’s tutorials. It was actually one of his guides which made me able to create my first little SamurAI (like I wanted it)😊 6🎉 Reflecting on your journey, what stands out as the most significant achievement in your career?


Hm.. If you’re talking about my AI career, I feel it’s still early days. But I must say that day I saw my posts started getting solid reach.

Many don’t know this, but before The SamurAI was born, I was a YouTube failure. I used so many hours for 6-7 months and got about 50-200 views on my videos. 10-20 hours to make a video, and almost no one watched it. That was a hard time. I couldn’t figure out the algorithm and didn’t produce good enough content. Then I realized I didn’t have time or motivation enough to pull it through. Because creating a video takes some real effort and time!

So I decided to go full on Twitter instead (glad I did), and from having ~40 views to suddenly hit 170K with some posts after a while, was one of the best feelings so far :)


Also the day my very first dollar came in, was really nice. I then realized that it’s possible for me to make some money out of it. "First impressions with Midjourney was that it was crap, haha! But then I realized that this is completely new, and will for sure evolve fast, and just get better and better. But I had no idea that it would evolve that fast as it did."

7📊 As you navigate this year, which technological or AI trends have caught your attention?

I remember the first time I saw proper text-to-video with Runway. I was stunned for days. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes that we reached this level with so good videos in so short time.

I then realized how fast this AI revolution is going. And if you’ve asked me last year about when this would be possible (with such quality), I would probably said 2025 or maybe 2030. 8🗣️ What valuable guidance or advice would you offer to newcomers entering the world of AI and its tools?


Find an interesting niche inside AI. AI is so big, and it’s evolving so f*cking fast. So even within a small niche it can be hard to keep up with the pace.

Use a lot of time to learn about what you find interesting. If you don’t have interest in what you’re doing, it will die out sooner or later. Remember you’ve limited time on this planet, so spend it wisely and use it on what’s within your interests. "In my opinion, we cannot let it learn and evolve completely by itself, we need solid boundaries." 9 What you think about future of AI?


It will be absolutely insane! (Already is). It will be everywhere. In our homes, phones, cars, planes ++. We will be able to create full products, tools, business from just text. With automated bots working as employees.

But I’m also a bit worried about how far we want to go. We need to regulate it and draw some lines. Think about AI controlling a military drone. This could have huge benefits for military warfare. But what if it all of a sudden start shooting civilians? Who is in charge of that “decision”?

In my opinion, we cannot let it learn and evolve completely by itself, we need solid boundaries.

10🎙️ If you had the opportunity to deliver a TED talk, what compelling topic would you choose?


Dictatorship and corruption


11🏝️ Imagine being stranded on a deserted island – what single item would you want to have with you?


A knife. As the DROP YOUR AI family, we thank SamurAI for giving us his valuable time. Also, don't forget to follow SamurAI on X/Twitter to avoid missing his valuable content.
