As an AI incluencer Kamani showing us how to produce high quality AI videos and AI images, using AI tools.
1. What was your background before diving into the realm of AI?
My background is in business & finance
"I generate entire videos with Artificial Intelligence. Instead of going out and shooting footage with a camera, I simply type sentences into an AI generator and moving clips come out."
2. How did you first venture into the world of AI, and what sparked your interest? I started in the AI space as most of us did, with the revelation of ChatGPT going public. Although I was captivated by the technology, I stayed away from it for the first 4 or 5 months. Once I saw all the cool stories of people doing amazing things with it, I saw an opportunity to become involved, and took it. I made my first tweet on this account on May 2nd 2023, and haven't looked back since. 3. Can you recall the initial AI tools you encountered? How did you discover them, and what were your initial impressions? I was already familiar with CHATGPT, but there were a lot of other emerging technologies that I was testing out. The one that really resonated with me is Midjourney, and I've been diving into it ever since. "For newcomers, I would just ask them to stay curious, experiment, and share your findings." 4. How would you simplify your AI-related work when explaining it to someone unfamiliar with the AI tool landscape? They way i would explain what I do in the AI space to someone goes as follows: "I generate entire videos with Artificial Intelligence. Instead of going out and shooting footage with a camera, I simply type sentences into an AI generator and moving clips comes out" 5. Whose insights or expertise in the field of AI do you find most enriching to learn from? I like Matt Wolfe, Kris Kashtonova & Nick St. Pierre. Those three are awesome.

Reflecting on your journey, what stands out as the most significant achievement in your career? To be completely honest, I'm not sure. A lot of cool stuff has happened, but nothing that meets my high levels of expectation. 7. As you navigate this year, which technological or AI trends have captured your attention? I love all of the updates with Runway ML, which gave me a huge incentive to go all in with videos. Initially, I cared more about image generation from Midjourney, but I felt the real magic would come from making those images move. "If I was stranded on an island, I would have a photograph of an old memory that I held dear to my heart. That would keep me focused on getting back to who I love at all costs." 8. What valuable guidance would you offer to newcomers diving into the world of AI and its tools? For newcomers, I would just ask them to stay curious, experiment, and share your findings. 9. If given the chance, what compelling topic would you choose for your own TED talk? I would probably choose the topic of Image Generation being used for business marketing purposes. 10. Imagine being stranded on a deserted island – what single item would you want with you? If I was stranded on an island, I would have a photograph of an old memory that I held dear to my heart. That would keep me focused on getting back to who I love at all costs. As the DROP YOUR AI family, we thank Kamani for giving us his valuable time.
