Exciting news from OpenAI - there’s now an API for ChatGPT. For a while, I’ve been thinking that we were heading rapidly into the trough of disillusionment when it comes to Large Language Models.

I thought we heading down to the touch of disillusionment

I’ve now revised my opinion, I think we’re actually still at the very start and are heading up to the peak of inflated expectations. It feels very much like the start of the dot com boom - everyone (including myself) is very excited and interested in what can potentially be achieved.

There’s a bit of landgrab going on from the AI providers - the pricing for the ChatGPT API is 10 times cheaper than their existing best-in-class model. This brings quite a few use cases back into reach and I think that as other providers (Facebook, Google etc…) get their acts together we’ll see prices decrease further.

So, here’s where I think we are now.

I think we're actually heading to the peak of inflated expectations

We’re actually heading to the peak of inflated expectations… I can’t wait to see all the crazy things that people are going to create. It’s going to be a wild ride!

Why does ChatGPT make mistakes - a layman's explanation - In this enlightening blog post, I dive into the tantalizing world of ChatGPT and Large Language Models. Clarifying its operation, I unlock this enigma by comparing its mechanisms to a simple language model. However, Challenges arise due to the explosion of possible token combinations, leading to an inherent 'lossy' compression of our world's vast information. Surprisingly, even with such compression, these models can mimic human language in a compelling manner. I also investigate possible strategies to optimize this amazing technology - including zero-shot learning, one-shot learning, few-shot learning, and fine-tuning. Entering the era of prompt engineering and larger models, we're stepping into a thrilling future, so buckle up, folks!
Do you need a ChatGPT plugin? - We've seen two major shifts in technology trends with websites and mobile apps - now there's a third one rearing its head. OpenAI's ChatGPT with plugins is on the cards and you better be ready for it. In the midst of fumbling for answers to whether we need these plugins or not, let me reassure you that it's not too complex. Far from requiring a squad of specialist developers, all you need to know is how to make an API to create a plugin for ChatGPT. Yes, there are potential pitfalls around security and data protection, but with the right precautions, you will be fine. So, dear developer, explore, experiment and gear up for this exciting phase!
It's Plausible, But Is It True? - Here's a wild ride with ChatGPT and other large language models! They're ace at cooking up plausible-sounding text, but they're not always the best when it comes to spitting out the truth - they've got a funky relationship with facts. One research paper showed they can come out with believable but totally fake answers to seemingly straightforward facts. But when I messed around with various models, there were a few discrepancies. Some got it right or plausibly wrong, but we humans are pretty gullible and tend to believe plausible-sounding info. So when it comes to using ChatGPT, make sure you fact-check, stay away from complex reasoning tasks, and don't try and solve maths problems - seriously, just stop. But it's a cracking tool for generating marketing copy, code (with a fact-check), finding bugs, and getting the creative juices flowing. Stay tuned though - tech's ever-evolving and these intelligent library computers aren't going away anytime soon!
OpenAI Keynote - According to GPT4 - OpenAI's new offerings are game-changers in the AI field, with personalized ChatGPT variants (GPTs), a developer-friendly Assistance API, GPT-4 Turbo with enhanced capabilities, and novel voice and vision modalities. These innovations, bolstered by a strategic partnership with Microsoft, pave the way towards sophisticated AI agents and a future brimming with untapped human potential.
Using ChatGPT for home automation - In another thrilling adventure with ChatGPT, I endeavored to integrate it with a Raspberry Pi, effectively turning it into my own personal light switch. My custom ChatGPT plugin, sporting just two endpoints, could revolutionize how we handle APIs, as it managed to control five different lights with simplicity and style. With a dash of YAML magic, ChatGPT managed to deduce the entire process, paving the way for future smart home projects. Big or small, the potential applications are endless and might even lead to computers communicating in human language!
