Also, my book has a cover (also I have a book coming out)
Is there a possibility of a Meeseeks problem, where a GPT gets stumped by a query and then creates a GPT to solve the problem, in an infinite recursion? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Meeseeks)
Ordered the book- can’t wait to read it. The way you lay the path for anyone to understand & use this technology is amazing.
Excellent blog post as ever. You are a cutting edge mind in this field and I am grateful!
On GPTs, it seems a limiting factor to me that the GPT agents one creates can only be accessed by people with paid OpenAI accounts. Is there any way around this currently?
Congrats on the book!
I am intrigued though... Generative AI is moving so fast, and your book comes out in 6 months. How did you (near-)future-proof it?
Ethan - how do you integrate with Word please?
Dear Ethan - this is the first time I have read your work and I very much like what you present, with clear examples …
I also agree that students may already be “cheating” through their use of AI! My doctoral research was in Question-Answering, completed a lifetime ago, which uses a form of promptiing, in a much simpler way, for elementary students.
My questions are: 1. Would your feedback be more well-received if the edits were in green (sending a “go forward & improve) message??
2. Is there a way to develop something like “Turn-it-in”, that monitors the use of AI CHAT (in all its forms) so students might begin to actually acknowledge their use of this technology?
NOT sure if I’m signed in or not? Best wishes for your book & I will read more of your work! Gail Brown email@example.com
Ps I’d be very interested in your answers - but I’m a bit if a novice on these chats? Maybe you could email if you have time??? 👍
What an absolutely brilliant blog! I learnt so much and I love how you write!
I pre-ordered the book (great cover) - Very much enjoy these columns. Thank you.
Really looking forward to this and keep up the awesome work Ethan. I recently wrote a book along similar lines if it’d help you in any way I’d be happy to chat through the customer interviews, the bumps and ups & downs I hit along the way
I would respectfully like to put in the suggestion box a request for a post that reflects these basic questions
1. What can "AI" do NOW? Not an extrapolation or prediction, which have proven to be wildly overly optimistic in this domain for almost 70 years, but actually happening, now. Not claims about probability or plausibility but factual statements about evidence-based current reality.
2. What can these LLMs and "neural nets" and similar technologies produce that human beings simply cannot produce? The strings of text and images that you've shown could easily be produced by human beings. I'm not talking about speed or automaticity. I'm talking about actually generating something that human beings simply cannot produce in any other way. This would be a requirement for calling any change revolutionary.
3. What can these LLMs and "neural nets" do in the world of atoms, away from a computer screen? How, in any remotely plausible nearish future, will these technologies transform the lived environment in the way that fossil fuels, electrification, and indoor plumbing transformed the lived environment?
Hi, what a great blog-post - thank you so much for your work, Ethan. I'm interested in learning more about the "create your own adventure" GPT you built: could you please share the PDF you used building it?
Hi Ethan, great Blog post with very useful insights: thanks for your work. I am really interessant in the „create your own adventure“ GPT - could you please share the PDF you used to build it?
I have to agree with Bing and Bard, I love the cover. Not sure if it was intentional, but I like how the fruit looks half ripe.
Has anyone else found that the GPTs are throwing up a lot of technical error messages, such as "You've reached the current usage cap for GPT-4, please try again after 1:23 PM" or "message not found in conversation" and others? Might be growing pains, but this severely impacts usability.
I've had some luck using structured data for the information I wanted it to use verbatim. e.g. I'm doing an interactive book, the table of contents is in json, but other material isn't.
Anecdotal success so far.
Just discovering your work after hearing this article on The AI Breakdown podcast. Incredibly useful and informative for an educator like me. The title of your book is fantastic and resonant--looking forward to the read.
