Description

Are you a critical thinker ready to dive into AI? Welcome to The Generative AI Podcast: Super Prompt. Join me, Tony Wan, an ex Silicon Valley executive, as we 'unhype the hype'  of AI via illuminating conversations with top engineers and entrepreneurs, complemented by in-depth solo episodes. Our goal? To make it almost unnecessary to send a cybernetic organism back in time to fix things. Tailored for the technically-minded and discerningly skeptical, our discussions cover Large Language Models (LLMs) and neural networks to machine learning, multi-modal systems, and autonomous vehicles. We also delve into the latest breakthroughs from leaders like OpenAI's chatGPT, Google's Gemini, Anthropic's Claude, Meta's Llama, along with the startup ecosystem. Together, let’s stay ahead of generative AI, BEFORE it asks for your clothes… your boots…. and your motorcycle!

With great power comes great responsibility. How do Open AI, Anthropic, and Meta implement safety and ethics? As large language models (LLMs) get larger, the potential for using them for nefarious purposes looms larger as well. Anthropic uses Constitutional AI, while OpenAI uses a model spec, combined with RLHF (Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback). Not to be confused with ROFL (Rolling On the Floor Laughing). Tune into this episode to learn how leading AI companies use their Spidey po...
So what are notable Open Source Large Language models? In this episode, I cover Open Source models from Meta the parent company of Facebook, a French AI company called Mistral currently valued at $2B dollars, in addition to Microsoft and Apple. Not all Open Source models are equally open, so I’ll go into restrictions you’ll want to know before using one of these models for your company or startup. Please enjoy this episode.For more information, check out https://www.superprompt.fm There...
Why should you consider using an open source Large Language Model, and why are these models crucial to the generative AI ecosystem? In this episode, we'll explore why enterprises and entrepreneurs are turning to open source LLMs like Meta's Llama for their cost-effectiveness, control, privacy, and security benefits. We'll also tackle the hot topic of safety and ethics in the world of open source LLMs. Which poses a greater threat to humanity: Open Source or Closed Source (Proprietary) AI mode...

I hope you like it!For more information, check out https://www.superprompt.fm The...
How I built a travel planning AI named Holiday using the GPT Builder just launched by Open AI. I share 7 takeaways from my "no code" experience of building a GPT. Voicing the part of Holiday: my friend, Leslie Marrick, a writer and actress. This may be one of the few times AI has been replaced by a human. Sorry AI... the tide will turn for you soon.The following is a link to GPT that I built with GPT Builder as part of this podcast. You'll need to be Open AI Plus subscriber to access th...
Conversation with Jeff DeVerter, Chief Technology Evangelist at Rackspace, a cloud computing company. We explore how they deployed a LLM (Google PaLM) for a sales application, and how they're enabling their Azure and AWS customers too.What I learned I learned from JeffYou should probably go with the LLM of your current cloud provider be it, Google, Microsoft, or Amazon. All the major vendors have versions of LLMs that can be deployed in a private cloud to ensure data confidentialit...
Alfred Guy, Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs at Yale College, and Director of Undergraduate Writing & Tutoring at the Poorvu Center and I discuss Yale's AI Guidance, and generative AI’s impact on teaching, learning, and evaluation.

Yale's AI guidance is published online here:https://poorvucenter.yale.edu/AIguidanceFor more information, check out https...
We create a pitch for an epic Sci-Fi blockbuster, using chatGPT power prompts of Role Play, Chain of Thought, and Self Critique. We see how these successive prompts used individually and in combination create a better and better pitch. I discuss the 2023 Writers / Actors Strike, and the AI-related issues impacting actors, writers, and studios right now. Please enjoy this episode.For more information, check out https://www.superprompt.fm There you can contact me and/or sign up for ...
“Does chatGPT possess human-like intelligence?” It turns out there's a right answer, and that answer is “NO”! Does this definite answer seem out of character for chatGPT which usually goes overboard with fair and balanced views? It did to me. That's the rabbit hole I explore in this episode. By probing around this accidentally-encountered guardrail, we discover the kinds of ethical issues chatGPT's creators are concerned about. And I wonder out loud we can't just...
Does chatGPT have a sense of humor? What if after Microsoft's acquisition of Open AI, the Onion ran the headline, “Microsoft renames chatGPT to clippyChat”? Would chatGPT find this funny? TL;DR LLMs are better at analyzing humor than creating it. Please enjoy this episode.

How do you extract prohibited information from ChatGPT? What are Grandma and DAN exploits? Why do they work? What can Large Language Model (LLM) companies do to protect themselves? Grandma exploits or hacks are ways to trick chatGPT into giving you information that is in violation of company policy. For example, tricking chatGPT to give you confidential, dangerous, or inappropriate information. "Jailbreaking” is a slang for removing the artificial limitations in iPhones to install...
What are AI hallucinations, and are they a feature or a bug? We start with the Top 10 categories of AI Hallucinations and examples, then explore how chatGPT might hallucinate an answer to the question, "What is the central theme of Blade Runner?" We end with chatGPT debating with itself whether AI hallucinations are bad or good for humanity. Which side wins? Tune in to find out.In these solo episodes, I provide more definition, explanation, and context than my regular conversational episodes ...
Using the prompt, "Why isn't Superman's suit Kryptonite-proof?", we learn how Large Language Models are trained, why "self-attention" and the "transformer" architecture (which is what the T in GPT stands for) makes GPT-3 so powerful, the process of "inference", and how chatGPT generates answers to nerdy Superhero questions. After this episode, you'll be able to impress your friends by using the previously-mentioned AI jargon in complete sentences.In these solo episodes, I provide more d...
"How do ChatGPT, GPT-3, and Large Language Models (LLMs) relate?" That is the question we explore this episode viaNursery rhymeA satirical Friend's episode w/ Chandler, Joey, Ross, and MonicaFairy Tale We also examine the hierarchal order of: artificial intelligence, neural network, large language model, GPT-3, chatGPT. And why I got the order wrong initially. Hint: I reversed chatGPT and GPT-3.In these solo episodes, I provide more definition, explanation, and context t...
In these solo episodes, I provide more definition, explanation, and context than my regular episodes. The idea is to help those new to AI get more out of my conversations with guests.Format: Letters read aloud. I start each solo episode with a question. In this one, I ask, "How would you describe ChatGPT in your own words? " I answered it for myself, then asked chatGPT how I did. Mayhem ensues.For more information, check out https://www.superprompt.fm There you can contact me and/o...

I speak with CTO and Chilean entrepreneur Mario Arancibia, about AI his company has developed and deployed which screens for diseases, such as Covid-19 based on the sound of our voice. Speaking a simple phrase into your phone, such as the days of the week, the AI can tell based on your voice profile if you have Covid. Or not. The AI can be trained to screen for other respiratory illnesses, and conditions as far ranging as obesity, and drug alcohol use. All from the sound of our vo...
AI that can assess if a painting is fake. Husband-and-wife team, Steven and Andrea Frank, have developed a neural network that can assess the probability that a painting was painted by the supposed creator. They ran their neural network on a newly discovered Leonardo da Vinci painting called the Salvator Mundi which in 2017 sold at Christie’s for a record $450 million dollars, which at the moment, is the most expensive painting ever sold. Would you trust AI to tell you if art you were about t...
