There’s still an overwhelming amount of material being written on AI. Here’s a few lists of some of the ones I found most interesting:
ChatGPT: ChatGPT (3 and 4) still dominate much of the discussion I see around AI. For instance:
- How ChatGPT is using plugins to gather even more data.
- Leave it to the Guardian to publish a piece on the stupidity of AI. As with many pieces. there, much to agree and disagree about.
- I think we can all agree on this…this was bad: ChatGPT invented a sexual harassment scandal and named a real law prof as the accused.
- This is fun/odd: building a dos chatgpt client in 2023. I love it.
- Related: how you can install a chatgpt like personal AI on your own computer and run it with no internet.
- A great example of how ChatGPT is helping with research in the areas of materials. Smart.
- Can chatgpt make meal planning easier? Answer: not really.
- A really good example of how to prompt ChatGPT in software development.
- How to use ChatGPT to do software architecture.
Using AI: people are trying to use AI for practical purposes, as those last few links showed. Here’s some more examples:
- How Kevin Kelly is using AI as an intern, as told to Austin Kleon.
- A good guide on how to use AI to do practical stuff.
- How to us Amazon AI coding assistant.
AI and imagery: not all AI is about text. There’s quite a lot going on in the visual space too. Here’s a taste:
- It seems Adobe has it’s own ai image generator.
- A good guide on Midjourney for photographers.
- This was a wild story, I thought: photographer admits prize winning image was AI generated. (See the image, above.)
AI and the problems it causes: there’s lots of risks with any new technology, and AI is no exception. Cases in point:
- A reminder of how dangerous AI can be in the wrong hands, and I am not talking criminals: facial recognition false arrests.
- Not to mention how bad it could be with horrible prompts!
- Or if racists and white supremacists build their own.
- Then there are basic problems, like the dangers of highly centralized AI. Just a different form of danger.
- I agree with this: AI is too important to leave to Microsoft and Google and the like.
- We need more companies to develop a code of ethics, as IBM has done.
- More regulation is required. Looks like Europe is going to deliver it, based on this: OpenAIs hunger for data is coming back to bite it.
Last but not least:
- Yawn: Musk supposed has a new AI company.
- Paul Krugman on how AI will affect the economy. Less than you think, he argues.
- A good piece on sentence word embeddings which kinda shows how LLM works.
- Looks like Microsoft is getting in the chip game to compete with Nvidia.
- What American workers think of artificial intelligence at work.
- When it comes to AI, here’s what Google is up to.
- Here’s a really good visual analysis of the datasets Google’s G4 is using.
- I read this skeptically: Sparks of Artificial General Intelligence: Early experiments with GPT-4.
- Is OpenAI stalled? Read this and this and decide for yourself.
- Finally: Who owns a song created by AI?
