The Shelly Palmer Blog: Think about this

Shelly Palmer


Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Today on Shelly Palmer LIVE (12:15 p.m. ET on YouTube Live), I’m going to demonstrate PrivateGPT: a large language model running locally on my personal computer with no internet access required. It is trained on my private data, which is secure (because it is running locally). This is the beginning of a unregulatable world of generative AI models and use cases. Choose your metaphor: “you can’t put the genie back in the bottle,” “you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube,” “you can’t unscramble an egg,” or (“not to put too fine a point on it”) “stick a fork in it; it’s done.”

Clichés aside, this is really significant. It’s been about 25 weeks since AI chatbots have become available to the general public. Now, it’s time to truly question how Big Tech (and governments) will respond to the democratization of LLMs.

Also on today’s livestream, I’m going to talk about the proposed European AI Act and Claude’s 100k token breakthrough, and I’ll also demonstrate the differences between Bard and ChatGPT Plus. Join me today at 12:15 p.m. ET for Shelly Palmer LIVE. Get notified here.
