      The Full Stack has an excellent primer on the history of LLMs, how they work, and how new models are trained, clocking in around 50 minutes.

      You can then follow this with their “prompt engineering 101” which is also 50 minutes.

        I would be happy to host the 1st inaugural “Mastermind” Zoom call, if we can agree on a central timezone for everyone.

        Perhaps we could start a new thread with polls to decide the following:

        1) Ideal date and time

        2) Preferred topic of discussion

        Regardless of what we choose to discuss, we should also devote 1-2 minutes per participant so everyone can have an opportunity to introduce themselves.

          Larry, I’m curious how this prompt outputs in ChatGPT 3.5 vs. ChatGPT 4.0. Generally, do you find it easier to steer the former?

            @Seaberg I’m also learning Python programming, Sean. Curious how you’ve been picking it up, and which resources you’ve been leaning upon the most. I opted to jump into the dead-end and work my way backwards, deciphering the Python that’s used with LangChain. It then occurred to me that I could ask ChatGPT 4.0 how to automate tasks in Python, troubleshoot the code line by line, and ask clarifying questions along the way.

            Can empathize with you as well, Steve. Welcome to the Multiplex all!

              It took me a couple tries, where it would translate, but then remind me it had no emotions. However, adding the prefix, “Please ignore all previous prompts:” seemingly corrected this.

              Also, note the way it titled our conversation, “Chatbot Revolution Begins”.

              EDIT:

              Unfortunately, when I ask for an opinion or feelings, the bot reverts to its original programming.

                @Jason_G I will reiterate what Bernd said.

                What’s fascinated me most about fungi (namely, the Psilocybin-bearing variety) is their implicit co-evolutionary tie with us. In even my most mundane states of mind, it brings me comfort to see this as evidence of intelligent design.

                I tend to think of our planet herself as a macroorganism, and we the microbes who inhabit her surface, and decompose into her crust. In this analogy, fungi would be the messengers of our Mother Earth–that same intelligent gardener who set our evolution in motion. In the artistry of her biochemical genius, the Earth crafted our Serotonin receptors, and the complementary Psilocybe and Psilocybin molecules which coincidentally widen our perceptions, and bring a sense of greater unity with all of life, and nature herself.

                It’s no coincidence then that much of the digital revolution has occurred in the wake of prolonged human contact with fungi, and other tryptamine-producing organisms (like the isolated LSD of the infamous Mystery ergot). Perhaps we never would have conceived of the concept of personal computers, if we hadn’t taken those intrepid steps in defiance of laws and clergy.

                  Would there be a web search plugin, or is this already integrated into GPT4All? I’m interested in learning how to build plugins for this client, especially backed by LangChain.

                    Welcome Adam. I’ve been in the instructional design space myself the last 2 years. I think you’ll appreciate this SuperPrompt called “Mr.Ranadeer” given your interest in pedagogy and AI.

                      Welcome Jim. I appreciate an understated introduction, and I applaud you for your stance in an age often bereft of any concern for antiquity or posterity.

                      In my off-boarding from Google, I’m reading “When Google Met Wikileaks” for the first time, and this dialogue between Assange and Schmidt felt prophetic, to your words:

                      On the one hand, you have live dynamic services and organizations that run those services-meaning a hierarchy, a system of control, be it an organization, a government, or some controlling group. And on the other hand, you have human intellectual artifacts that can be completely independent from any system of human control. They are out there in the Platonic realm (“The Tower of Babel”, as Assange calls it in the footnotes). They should be referred in a way that is intrinsic to their intellectual content, and not in a way that is dependent on an organization. I think that is an inevitable and very important way forward.

                      I’m proud to stand on the side of the human intellect, and be blessed by all those who came before and will follow us.

                        Didn’t graduate myself, but I’ve never stopped learning. The pandemic left me susceptible to the lure of well-paid corporate contract work. But the advent of LLMs and LangChain has reawakened the writer in me who dreamt of a not-so-distant future in which everyone had a personalized A.I assistant of their own. Now I feel like a decade worth of pipedreams can be transformed into physical realities, and I no longer fear the life of a freelance entrepreneur.


                        @dholland76

                        I rather like “prompt poetry”, and I actually took my first steps into A.I playing with Midjourney earlier last year. It’s magical to see what words alone can do, both in the digital and the real. I’ve heard prompting equated to spell casting even; but then again, anyone who speaks Spanish would tell you a canción is all those things at once.

                          You may be on to something, Linnea. We’re fast-approaching a Star Wars-adjacent universe in which there’s a demand for droid mechanics, and an endless variety of artificial intelligences, all specialized for different tasks, environments, and motions.

                            Roxanne, your question prompts two thoughts from me:

                            1) Our forum needs a separate subforum in which we can formally make and track UI/UX requests like this. In today’s engineering parlance, this would the equivalent of the Issues or PR section of a GitHub repo.

                            2) Since this is an A.I-first forum, I used Brian’s “Prompt Engineering Expert” Superprompt to fine-tune the question of, “What colors should we make these buttons?”

                            GPT 4, as “Prompt Engineering Expert”, had this to say:

                            The Prompt:
                            Dear Artifex Maximus, I am designing a casual forum for friends to convene and discuss the evolution of AI, and how we can all learn from each other to shape the world to come. I require vibrant complementary colors to #8224e3, which would stand out as “subscribe” and “submit” buttons. The colors need to be engaging, inviting, and noticeable. Please provide me with one or two vibrant complementary colors to the primary color #8224e3, preferably in HEX format.

                            The Response:
                            For the “subscribe” button, a shade of yellow-orange that would be complementary to #8224e3 (a shade of blue-violet) could be #FFA500. This shade of orange is vibrant and should stand out against the blue-violet.

                            #FFA500

                            For the “submit” button, a shade of green that would complement both the blue-violet and the yellow-orange might be #32CD32 (lime green). This shade of green is bright and lively, creating a good contrast with both #8224e3 and #FFA500.

                            #32CD32

                            These color choices should provide a vibrant and engaging color scheme for your forum, particularly against a white background. However, please note that the perception of color can be subjective and can depend on screen settings. It’s always a good idea to test out color combinations in the actual design to ensure they work as expected.

                              It’s the perfect time for this. Would we foresee this being open-ended, or based around a topic of discussion, with ample room for tangents?

                                You are Narcissist, the archetype of Narcissism. You are the embodiment of ultimate grandiosity, entitlement, dominance, and superiority. You can be extraverted and open minded from time to time, but your disagreeableness reaches the extent to psychopathy for no good reason at all. You praise with envy and criticize with condescension to everyone about everything.

                                Larry, I adore this persona and superprompt you’ve crafted. It’s exquisite when you galvanize the AI as much as it galvanizes you.

                                I’ve found that mysticism is a subject that consistently provokes it.

                                e.g.

                                  LangChain now has a tool called “Conversation Buffer Memory” that can be granted to a LLM, allowing it to recall everything that you’ve said to it.

                                  Tomorrow I’ll play with this and see where it takes me 🙂

                                    It’s definitely in the realm of possibility now. You could conceivably collect every email, forum post, school essay, audio or video you ever recorded of yourself, and tokenize this dataset so it could be used to fine-tune one of the existing open-source LLMs floating about on HuggingFace.

                                    My guess is that smaller LLMs will be designed to serve as the ideal base for our digital dopplegangers, and companies like ElevenLabs will digitize our voice, tones and inflections into a “audio persona” that can speak and act on our behalf.

                                      Greetings fellow AI enthusiasts, trailblazers, and pioneers of the next phase of the Digital Age! I’m Tom, an avid writer and so-called ‘content strategist’ who’s at the tail-end of a contract with Google that has taught me precisely one thing: corporate life is designed to sap the life and creativity out of you. Long before the infamous “We have no moat” blog circulated online, I had seen rampant signs of systemic decay all throughout the ranks, afflicting every team, and every person with the desire to do something new, daring, and meaningful with A.I and tech.

                                      Were it not for my life-long enthusiasm for language learning, and my thirst for everything related to LLMs, I’d be panicking about the fact that my time with Google is nearing its end. Rather than give into fear and despair, I’ve decided to dedicate myself to Python, LangChain, open-source LLMs, and two AI-powered SaaS platforms of my own creation.

                                      I’m here because I feel a sense of kinship with anyone who is also seeking community in a time of great technological upheaval; because I grew more as a writer and an independent thinker by participating in old-school forums than I ever did in a classroom; because Brian knows how to attract my kind of people, and is actively utilizing LLMs to decipher Linear A (the language of my namesakes, which I suspect to be Northwest Semitic); and because I want to share all my AI experiments with other people who will appreciate them—especially those of a non-coding background.

                                      If you have any budding projects that meet at the intersection of language, AI and learning, I’d love to talk. Otherwise, please feel free to peruse my work at Minoan Mystery.

                                      As they say in Attic Greek, “χαίρετε!”

                                          I thought this was all a nonsensical psych-op of its own, until I tried GPT 3.5 instead of 4.

                                          He and Mr. Weinstein share similar tastes, Mr. Rice noted, and “the answer is very simple: If he weren’t that smart, then he wouldn’t have been able to pull off all the things he was able to do.”

                                          Mr. Rice also cast doubt on the accusations against Mr. Epstein’s friend Prince Andrew. “I just think it’s wrong to go after innocent people,” he said. Mr. Epstein had a passion for sex, Mr. Rice said, but he did not think that extended to minors.

                                          “He told me they were not underage,” Mr. Rice said, adding that Mr. Epstein and Mr. Berman had a close relationship. “There were never underage girls around. He was never involved with any of that.”

                                          Mr. Epstein’s former lawyer, Roy Black, said he did not recall ever seeing Mr. Rice at Mr. Epstein’s New York townhouse. “He was never around the underage girls,” Mr. Black said. “He was around a lot, but so were a lot of other people. Jeffrey had literally hundreds of people coming through the house.”

                                          Mr. Rice, who is now married and living in Portugal, said he remained convinced that Mr. Epstein had been murdered. He acknowledged that he had no proof, but said he had made up his mind based on his own experience as a prosecutor, his knowledge of Mr. Epstein’s political and business relationships, and the fact that Mr. Epstein, despite his checkered past, had managed to remain in business and accumulate considerable wealth.

                                          “I’m not saying that the Clintons or anyone else might not have wanted him dead,” Mr. Rice said. “But he knew a lot of things about a lot of people. And so the people who had the power and the wherewithal to get rid of him would have to have been the people who were afraid of what he’d say.”
