Description

Curious about how AI will transform our world and careers? Join me, Tony Wan, ex Silicon Valley exec, on Super Prompt. We use breaking news as a springboard to build our foundational knowledge of generative AI, covering everything from ChatGPT to cutting-edge startups. We 'unhype the hype' via deep dive solo episodes and insightful conversations with engineers and entrepreneurs to help us grasp the real impact of AI on our lives. Tailored for the nerdy and critically-minded, we explore topics like Large Language Models (LLM), neural networks, multi-modal systems, GPT-4, Gemini, Llama, and DALL-E. Together, let's decode the complex, fast-evolving world of generative AI.

The recent spring updates and demos by both Google (Gemini) and OpenAI (GPT-4o) feature prominently their multimodal capabilities. In this episode, we discuss the advantages of multimodal AI versus models focused on specific modalities such as language. Via the example of chatCAT, a hypothetical AI that helps owners understand their cats, we explore multimodal’s promise for a more holistic understanding Please enjoy this episode.For more information, check out https://www.su...
Google recently announced, Gemini, a family of large-scale multimodal AI models: Nano, Pro, and Ultra. This podcast is a brief summary of Google's models, and the Open AI comparables e.g. GPT3, GPT4, and chatGPT. You can take Gemini for a spin at https://gemini.google.com. (Note: I am not sponsored by Google.) Long time listeners will probably notice a change to our theme music and intro. 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 This may be one of the few times AI has been replaced by a human.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...

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 scientist entrepreneur, Arijit Ray. Arijit is a PHD candidate at Boston University.

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...
Alpha Go AI plays the game of GO against a human world champion. Unexpected moves by both man (9-dan Go champion Lee Sedol) and machine (Alpha Go). Supposedly, this televised Go match woke up China's leadership to the potential of AI. In the game of Go, players take turns placing black and white tiles on a 19×19 grid. The number of board positions in Go is greater than the number of atoms in the observable universe. We discuss the documentary Alpha Go which tells the story of Alpha Go (...
A 100% digital version of the world's driving environment is being created AKA The Metaverse. Think an immersive virtual reality environment like Grand Theft Auto with less destruction, profanity, and mayhem. The goal? Have a self-driving AI not be able to tell if it’s driving in the real-world or a simulation. Can we fool AI into thinking it's not AI? Don’t freak out. Or freak out. The Matrix is being coded as we speak. I speak again with my friend Maroof Farook, an AI Engineer at Nvidia. [N...
I speak again with my friend Maroof Farook who is an AI Engineer at Nvidia. [Note: Maroof’s views are his and not that of his employer.] This is a continuation of our previous conversation about self-driving cars. We discuss AI challenges including humans on bicycles, bicycles on bike racks, motorcycles, and other things easy for a teenager with a driving permit to figure out but hard for a computer. "Roads with fully autonomous vehicles will be a safer roads." That's what compani...
