there's lots of AI buzz, but here are the three products from this week to pay attention to

Poe from Quora. Quora opened up public access to their new AI chat bots. Poe lets people ask questions, get instant answers, and have back-and-forth conversations with several AI-powered bots. They are using different models to power each chat bot so that they can be optimized for different tasks, represent different points of view, or have access to different knowledge. Interestingly, they are also opening up API access to the models so that developers can leverage Poe for their own projects. iOS only for now.

Quora's Poe

Microsoft Bing AI, powered by ChatGPT. Positioned as "an AI copilot for the web," Microsoft unveiled a few changes to Bing (their search engine 😬) that leverage ChatGPT. It now shows more comprehensive answers to basic searches and for more complex searches – such as for planning a detailed trip itinerary or researching what TV to buy – they offer a new, interactive chat. It's exciting to see a company of Microsoft's size moving so fast to integrate ChatGPT into it's product offering. Their early investment in ChatGPT is looking like it might help Bing gain some market share from Google...might being the key word in that sentence. Microsoft executives told investors on Tuesday that chipping away even 1% of Google's market share would be worth $2 billion a year in ad revenue. 🤯

Cody. An AI assistant like ChatGPT, but with the added benefit of being able to train it on your business, your team, your processes, and your clients. Large language models (LLM), such as ChatGPT, are cool, but they are general models and often give you generic responses. This startup's product is interesting to me because they are making it easy for anyone to fine-tune a LLM so that it's more useful and applicable to their business use cases. You can use Cody to support your team by answering questions, analyzing information, and brainstorming ideas.


if you only read one thing this week let it be this

Decoding the Hype About AI by Julia Angwin.

"If you have been reading all the hype about the latest artificial intelligence chatbot, ChatGPT, you might be excused for thinking that the end of the world is nigh. The clever AI chat program has captured the imagination of the public for its ability to generate poems and essays instantaneously, its ability to mimic different writing styles, and its ability to pass some law and business school exams. Teachers are worried students will use it to cheat in class (New York City public schools have already banned it). Writers are worried it will take their jobs (BuzzFeed and CNET have already started using AI to create content). The Atlantic declared that it could 'destabilize white-collar work.' Venture capitalist Paul Kedrosky called it a 'pocket nuclear bomb' and chastised its makers for launching it on an unprepared society. Even the CEO of the company that makes ChatGPT, Sam Altman, has been telling the media that the worst-case scenario for AI could mean 'lights out for all of us...'" CONTINUE READING
