As a CTO, I'm excited and looking forward to this interview.

I'm going to interview Pranav Goel on "Integrating LLMs into existing products" for Gravitas WINS Radio.

I bet that we will see more LLMs integrated into existing products than developing stand-alone LLM products.

Pranav and I are going to discuss what could be the methodology, what kind of regulations will play out etc.

If you have any questions, please replay back.

DataCon: как научиться применять ИИ на химических данных

Уже два года подряд Центр искусственного интеллекта в химии ИТМО проводит DataCon - это сочетание образовательного интенсива и хакатона. Ученые Центра “делегируют” участникам хакатона обработку данных, собранных в ходе экспериментов и по открытым источникам. Результат - обученные ML-модели, прогнозирующие характеристики новых наночастиц из проектов Центра. В то же время DataCon - бесплатный образовательный интенсив, который проходит онлайн для школьников и студентов, уже имеющих базу в области химии. Они расширяют свои знания по нейросетям и работе с ними в контексте обработки экспериментальных данных. В этой статье расскажем о том, как это работает и какие результаты дает.

Once upon a time, students used to ask their friends to take tape recorders to lectures, so they could sleep in, and listen later. Before long, the room filled with tape recorders.

So one day, the lecturer came in with a tape player, hit 'play', and left his box, speaking the lecture the other machines.

I feel like the #ML craze needs a few tools to automatically apply to jobs and benefits.

Something I’ve been thinking about a lot in the current battle over the future of (pseudo) AI is the cotton gin.

I live in a country where industrial progress is always considered a positive. It’s such a fundamental concept to the American exceptionalism claim that we are taught never to question it, let alone realize that it’s propaganda.

One such myth, taught early in grade school, is the story of Eli Whitney and the cotton gin. Here was a classic example of a labor-saving device that made millions of lives better. No more overworked people hand cleaning the cotton (slaves, though that was only mentioned much later, if at all). Better clothes and bedding for the world. Capitalism at its best.

But that’s only half the story of this great industrial time saver. Where did those cotton cleaners go? And what was the impact of speeding up the process?

Now that the cleaning bottleneck was gone, the focus was on picking cotton as fast as possible. Those cotton cleaners likely, and millions of other slaves definitely, were sent to the fields to pick cotton. There was an unprecedented explosion in the slave trade. Industrial time management and optimization methods were applied to human beings using elaborate rule-based systems written up in books. How hard to punish to get optimal productivity. How long their lifespans needed to be to get the lost production per dollar. Those techniques, practiced on the backs and lives of slaves, became the basis of how to run the industrial mills in the North. They are the ancestors of the techniques that your manager uses now to improve productivity.

Millions of people were sold into slavery and worked to death *because* of the cotton gin. The advance it provided did not, in fact save labor overall. Nor did it make life better overall. It made a very small set of people much much richer; especially the investors around the world who funded the banks who funded the slave purchases. It made a larger set of consumers more comfortable at the cost of the lives of those poorer. Over a hundred years later this model is still the basis for our society.

Modern “AI” is a cotton gin. It makes a lot of painstaking things much easier and available to everyone. Writing, reading, drawing, summarizing, reviewing medical cases, hiring, firing, tracking productivity, driving, identifying people in a lineup…they all can now be done automatically. Put aside whether it’s actually capable of doing any of those things *well*; the investors don’t care if their products are good, they only care if they can make more money off of them. So long as they work enough to sell, the errors, and the human cost of those errors, are irrelevant. And like the cotton gin, AI has other side effects. When those jobs are gone, are the new jobs better? Or are we all working that much harder, with even more negative consequences to our life if we fall off the treadmill? One more fear to keep us “productive”.

The Luddites learned this lesson the hard way, and history demonizes them for it; because history isn’t written by the losers.

They’ve wrapped “AI” with a shiny ribbon to make it fun and appealing to the masses. How could something so fun to play with be dangerous? But like the story we are told about the cotton gin, the true costs are hidden.

Prompt Engineer — очень перспективная профессия. На рынке труда, в том числе российском, появляется всё больше вакансий с солидной зарплатой. Удивительно, но к специалистам в этой области, как правило, нет конкретных требований. Иногда кажется, что некоторые компании ищут промпт-инженеров, просто чтобы соответствовать тренду. Недавно я видел в одном из объявлений такой пассаж: «...Будет преимуществом опыт работы на смежной позиции (продактом, дата-сайентистом, разработчиком) и знание Python…».

Another day, another instance in which you can see how #FOSS is not just "nice to have", and the general good would be served much better if big tech found a way to collaborate, cooperate, and waste less of our time with their competitive and destructive practices.

So... you wonder, is #Google's #Gemini really that good as claimed on the paper?

It's probably very good, but from the MMLU benchmark alone it's impossible to know for sure how it compares to existing open source models that excel across a range of benchmarks.

The answer is we don't know, because Gemini is not #FOSS, and we can't know unless G share their model (right... you wish) or they produce comparable benchmark reports (and if we trust them that they're playing nice)

However, if we sort the leaderboard by the average performance of each model taking account of a group of benchmarks commonly in use today, we get a completely different picture. (this is the default leaderboard sort order on Hugging face)

Excerpt from the Google Gemini paper. 

It reads:

On MMLU (Hendrycks et al., 2021a), Gemini Ultra can outperform all existing models, achieving an accuracy of 90.04%. MMLU is a holistic exam benchmark, which measures knowledge across a set of 57 subjects. Human expert performance is gauged at 89.8% by the benchmark authors, and Gemini Ultra is the first model to exceed this threshold, with the prior state-of-the-art result at 86.4%. Achieving high performance requires specialist knowledge across many domains (e.g. law, biology, history, etc.), alongside reading comprehension and reasoning. We find Gemini Ultra achieves highest accuracy when used in combination with a chain-of-thought prompting approach (Wei et al., 2022) that accounts for model uncertainty. The model produces a chain of thought with k samples, for example 8 or 32. If there is a consensus above a preset threshold (selected based on the validation split), it selects this answer, otherwise it reverts to a greedy sample based on maximum likelihood choice without chain of thought. We refer the reader to appendix for a detailed breakdown of how this approach compares with only chain-of-thought prompting or only greedy sampling.

Dear opensource developers, if you build ML libraries on top of other ML libraries, please expose the underlying APIs for:
- loading custom model weights
- saving model weights
- saving pipelines
- exporting safetensors

This way, you support your users in working with local models, instead of making them extra dependent on external model hosting parties like Google and HuggingFace.

Ok, I'm converging on a position regarding the terms "artificial intelligence" and "machine learning", relevant to my previous discussion.

Short version is that the term AI is unscientific, AGI is intellectually dishonest, and both AI and ML serve to mislead. There should be convergence on alternate terminology, so as to help build a robust critical/skeptic movement.

I'm still exploring this topic, but I wanted to share back a really cool paper I found:

This paper argues that "gene networks evolve like neural networks learn," and has some very fun examples demonstrating how to do traditional machine learning using model gene regulatory networks as a medium.

It's hardly the final word on the topic, but I'm excited to see folks actively exploring how learning theory might apply to genetics! Seems very promising.

I'll pose the question(s) more directly:

Are the terms "artificial intelligence" and/or "machine learning" intellectually dishonest? Are they deceptive or misleading, whether intentionally or unintentionally?

Does their use misinform and harm the general public? Do they harm the public understanding of science? Do they enable bad actors who *do* intend to deceive and mislead? Should their continued use be critiqued and perhaps discouraged?
