D-Squared Musings – Week 17
- Trying to keep up with all the AI action happening in the last couple of weeks has been daunting. This makes me think, why am I trying to “keep up”? Anyways… Here’s a great list of resources I’ve come across that can assist if you’re interested in putting yourself through similar pain. Also, here’s an aggregated Twitter list too.
📝 Task-driven GPT models – capable of achieving larger tasks through autonomous action
- Check out Auto-GPT and BabyAGI if you haven’t already, it’s the next big area of focus during this chaotic wave of AI. As you can see below Auto-GPT is getting A LOT of attention! 😲
- I recently started Peter’s new book, which has not disappointed me. Peter has a great way of breaking complex topics down and providing frameworks to think about extending one’s health span. I prefer this framework approach because it enables the reader to make intelligent decisions irrelevant to the new health fad being pushed (i.e. Crossfit, Keto, Vegan, Carnivore, etc.). Here’s a good Tim Ferriss interview with Peter about the book.
🐇 Entrepreneurship Rabbit Hole
- Not sure why I feel cringe sharing this kind of information (probably ads around these videos), but I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole this week around entrepreneurship. It’s a mental hole I fall down usually once a quarter, reflecting on why I’m not building anything on my own or at least experimenting on the side while working full-time. The most difficult hurdle for me to overcome is transitioning from the “employee mindset” to the “entrepreneur mindset”. There’s a lot of psychological baggage to unpack here as to why it’s hard for me to make that jump (i.e. status, “safety”, comfort, sunk cost fallacy, etc.), but we’ll leave that for another day. Here’s a list of resources I’ve come across related to the topic that I found useful for either motivation, empathy, or practical insight.
