🍎 Big News: Apple Enters the AI Space

Apple’s been quiet, too quiet for a long time … until now.

Apple just announced “AppleGPT”—an AI chatbot that’s coming to iPhone next year.

Why is this such a game-changer? Because Apple knows you better than any other company on the planet. And by a lot.

AppleGPT will likely be trained on your: iMessage history, Search history, Health data, Photos, Emails, and more.

To put it simply, Apple’s AI will know you better than ChatGPT, Bard, or any other AI on the market.

While Apple may be fashionably late to the AI game, they've got a fantastic shot at winning it. Win what exactly? Who ever wins the corporate race to dominate the AI space may likely rule the world for decades or even centuries!

Apple’s AI system will likely be integrated with the VisionPro. It could become be the ultimate device!

🧪 AI: the Alchemical Catalyst of My Business Evolution

I'm really amazed and impressed at what's possible with AI to turbo charge everything I do. Like an alchemical catalyst, AI has sparked a profound transformation in my business evolution.

About nine months ago, while beta-testing ChatGPT, I had an ‘A-HA’ moment! I realized how ChatGPT represents a significant breakthrough in AI technology, like a versatile Swiss Army knife that can be applied to a myriad of tasks. Since then, I've dedicated 111% of my attention to AI, and the results have been astounding.

Just as the alchemists sought to transmute ordinary elements into extraordinary substances, AI has become the transformative force behind my business endeavors. It's like unlocking the secrets of the philosopher's stone, as AI empowers me to accomplish tasks with unprecedented efficiency and insight.

With AI by my side, I've alchemized my business processes. I’m outlining, writing, and editing with newfound speed and precision.

🤖 The Crucial Role of Human-AI Interaction in Our Future

As we stand on the brink of a technological revolution driven by AI, understanding and effectively interacting with AI has never been more important. In this context, let’s examine insights provided by Stuart Russell, a renowned computer science professor and AI expert, in his video "How will AI change the world?"

“If you hand over the management of your civilization to machines, you then lose the incentive to understand it yourself or to teach the next generation how to understand it."

~ Stuart Russell

Here’s key insights from the video:

Deciphering AI Objectives: Russell underscores the importance of clear communication with AI. Because AI systems interpret instructions literally, this can cause unintended consequences if objectives are not fully specified. This highlights the need for humans to articulate their intentions effectively when setting tasks for AI.

Technological Unemployment: a Reality of the AI Era: the video brings to light the concept of "technological unemployment", where job losses could occur due to AI and automation. This underlines the necessity of learning to coexist with AI and adapt to a transforming job market.

Avoiding Overdependence on Machines: Russell warns against the risk of becoming overly reliant on machines, which could lead to a loss of understanding and knowledge transfer to future generations. This underlines the importance of maintaining a balance in our relationship with AI, leveraging its benefits without compromising our own knowledge and skills.

The Value of Uncertainty in AI: interestingly, Russell points out that AI systems that are uncertain about their objectives tend to ask for clarifications, thereby avoiding potentially harmful actions. This highlights the importance of designing AI systems that can interact effectively with humans.

Embracing the AI Future: with general-purpose AI (AGI), likely to be arriving by the end of the century (I think it will come much sooner), the need for effective human-AI interaction is more crucial than ever. As we navigate this evolving landscape, our ability to relate well with AI will be key to harnessing its potential while mitigating its risks.

As we continue to explore the frontier of AI, let's remember Russell's insights and ensure that our relationship with AI is marked by clear communication, balance, and a commitment to preserving human knowledge for generations to come.

🎥 Love in the Age of AI: a Cinematic View into the Movie 'Her'

In the movie "Her," a lonely writer develops a deep emotional connection with an advanced AI operating system, blurring the boundaries between human and machine.

I’ll never forget the first time I watched this movie. The end of the movie (don’t worry, no spoilers) offers deep insight into where human-AI relations may eventually go. If you haven’t already seen “Her”, I highly recommend you do. Here is a short clip of when Theodore (played by Joaquin Phoenix) first meets his new AI friend, Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

Love at first computation! 💕

“How to Relate with AI” - made with Midjourney, by

In my explorations with ChatGPT and Midjourney, I've come to learn valuable insights about the nature of AI collaboration. One fundamental insight involves the interactive and conversational aspect of working with AI. Instead of one-off queries, I treat the process as an ongoing conversation. By continuously asking questions and responding to the information AI provides, a dynamic exchange emerges, resulting in a unique collaborative experience.

I've also come to understand the crucial role humans play as the guiding force in the AI partnership. AI lacks intention or intrinsic creativity, and relies on our guidance and clear direction to shape its creative output. As technical, creative, and art directors, we breathe life into AI's intelligence, infusing it with purpose and ingenuity.

By adopting this interactive and directive approach, AI becomes a valuable collaborator, forging a meaningful alliance, and amplifying our creative potential. Together, we explore vast realms of creative synergy and imagination, where human ingenuity and AI intelligence combine to craft remarkable and innovative outcomes.
