💸 Invest in your ChatGPT Prompts — "Mega-Prompting"
One of the biggest mistakes people make when using ChatGPT is not taking the time to create their own collection of prompts. While searching online for the "best ChatGPT prompts" might seem like a good idea, you'll never find something that's truly tailored to your specific needs or business.
To fully utilize the power of this AI, it's essential to create prompts that are customized to for your use cases.
If you’re not getting the output you want from ChatGPT, it’s because you’re not prompting it specifically enough.
I have created a guide on how to create what I call "Mega-Prompting". This involves creating custom, detailed prompts that are specifically tailored to your use cases.
🧐 Is AI's Rapid Progress a Good Thing?
Lately, there's been talk among current and former Google employees about the company's race to keep up with AI competition, and some people are worried about it. They're saying that Google is moving too fast to build AI technology, which might not leave enough time to fully examine the potential risks.
To be honest, I think moving quickly might actually be a positive thing. Google has had powerful AI technology for some time, but they only started using it after ChatGPT exploded. I'm not so sure they made much progress in making AI safer by holding back. At least now, we can start to see what might happen and prepare ourselves.
To ensure a safe future with AI, we need to use it and learn from our experiences. Government and regulatory groups are only going to step in once we understand how AI can actually be detrimental. As a society, we can't start fixing problems until we know what those problems are.
So, personally, I'm not too worried about Google moving fast. The quicker we put AI out there, the sooner we can pinpoint its potential challenges, and the sooner we can start solving them.
💡 This Week's Recommendations
This is a great tweet. Essentially, AI will enhance productivity and drive down the costs of intelligence which will lead to a greater supply of intelligent work and subsequently, an increased demand for such work. AI might create more opportunities than it takes away—a topic I’ll dive deeper into in later newsletters.
Elon Musk says he will launch rival to Microsoft-backed ChatGPT: I think it’s important to keep up to date with Elon. He makes bold claims, but more often than not, he follows through on them (such as buying Twitter for $44B). In the past couple of weeks, Elon has called for a halt in AI development, announced that he's starting an AI company called x.ai, hinted at a "TruthGPT" model, and now, he's threatening to sue Microsoft over training data. Elon isn't playing around, and I believe his role in AI development will continue to grow.
Human or Not?: This is a fun little game where you chat with either another person or an AI, and try to discern whether you're talking to a human or a machine.
Viral AI-Generated Drake Song ‘Heart on My Sleeve’ Removed from Spotify: This week, an AI-generated song that sounded like the artist Drake went viral. It sounded exactly like him, and people loved the song. However, it was subsequently removed from both Spotify and YouTube. In my opinion, this is just the first of many legal issues that will arise regarding AI and artist ownership. The fight between AI and artists is just beginning.
The inside story of ChatGPT's astonishing potential: Greg Brockman, the President of OpenAI, gave a TED talk on ChatGPT. He showcased some new applications of ChatGPT, including its ability to use tools (plugins) and actually perform actions. He also broke down how they built the AI systems and where things are headed, which is quite interesting.
