Where, oh where is @fearlessfrog when one feels that his insight would benefit the conversation?
Having not had time, nor a login, which was seemingly saturated every time I attempted to create an OpenAI.com account, I had not tried ChatGPT until this past weekend. My wife works for a company with AI in the name, that ostensibly uses the technology to create a dashboard to show their clients where they rate over a number of metrics against their competition. She having MBA after her name, being 14 years my junior, and being a member of the primary competing gender, I occasionally go to lengths to demonstrate why my knowledge of any technical subject superior to hers. I usually fail.
However, Saturday, while sitting with other soccer parents, a good friend of mine mentioned that he is thinking of selling his business, worried that AGI, something like ChatGPT, would make his very lucrative consultancy, somewhat irrelevant. Upon returning home, I found that OpenAI had finally found me worthy of credentials, which essentially sent me down an AI rabbit hole the rest of the weekend, the NCAA basketball tournament notwithstanding.
I’ll cut to the chase and list a couple of the very insightful videos that I consumed, and hope that this begins relevant discourse on the subject, of which I have barely scratched the surface.
