    My Thoughts on Generative AI

    My Thoughts on Generative AI

    I've been spending a lot of time thinking about the 3 different parts of generative AI tools like ChatGPT: inputs, outputs, and training data. There are many new applications that will be built using 1, 2, or 3 of these parts.

    It's important for us to understand what is possible. The whole internet is about to change...

    FTX and the Destruction of Trust

    FTX and the Destruction of Trust

    FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried have imploded, sending ripple effects through crypto and well beyond. But is this really an example of web3? Or is this just a classic case of fraud?

    Technically, no, this is not web3. But do the semantics matter? The damage is done. 

    I usually edit my rants down to 20 min but I couldn't do it this week. SBF has betrayed us.

    Is it possible to create a system where we are truly no longer vulnerable to these sorts of con artists?

    Apple's NFT Tax

    There was some debate in the web3 community about whether Apple was going to apply its standard 30% fee to NFT purchases made in iOS apps.
    Spoiler alert: Yes, they did.
    Is it fair? To discuss!

    Meta, one year in

    The metaverse will not built in a year.

    But it has been one year since Facebook rebranded to Meta and stated its intention to build the next phase of the internet. Let's talk about where they are now, and why so many people keep hating on them.

    And the Oscar goes to... AI

    It turns out that creative tasks are *not* immune to the robot takeover. Meta AI researchers have created a new AI that can generate video content on the fly from a simple text prompt. Basically, you send a text of what you want, and it creates a video of that exact thing. Film students everywhere, beware.

Like being back in the classroom with Professor Canetti

Great for non tech people too!

I’m not a “tech person” or an MBA but I find this podcast to be so engaging and interesting! Professor Canetti explains the news in a way that I can understand and really connect how the tech industry impacts our lives. He also cracks me up! I highly recommend this podcast for techies and non techies alike.

Excellent quality content distilled in an engaging, digestible way. Goes through topics you probably have heard of, but haven’t had the time to dissect. Great to impress friends!
