Some Quotable Quotes from Industry Leaders
“ChatGPT and other Generative AI platforms will have huge implications for business productivity.”
“In a world where ChatGPT and other AI apps can do many things humans once needed to do themselves or needed to hire other humans to do, the question of ‘how will I add value?’ becomes more relevant than ever.”
“How will you add value in the era of generative AI? If you aren’t attempting to answer this question now by choice, it will ultimately be answered for you by force.”
“In an era of generative AI, trust will accrue greater value in the marketplace. People will elevate trust on their list of prerequisites to purchase and prerequisites to engage with content. Furthermore, there will be a redistribution of income and assets from companies and people who are less trusted to those companies and people who are more trusted.”
“In the age of generative AI, trust brokers will become increasingly necessary and increasingly valuable in the marketplace.”
― Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr, CEO of Mayflower-Plymouth, Business Essentials
Infographic on How Marketers are Moving with Generative AI
Generative AI is one of the most groundbreaking advancements in recent years, a cutting-edge technology revolutionizing how marketers engage with their audiences.
As Humans, What Should Be Your Concern about Large Language Models?
“On generative AI, LLMs, etc.
Humans acquire language and communication skills from a diverse range of sources, including raw, unfiltered, and unstructured content. However, when it comes to relying on knowledge, humans tend to rely on transparent, trusted, and structured sources.
In contrast, ChatGPT and other large language models (LLMs) use a vast array of opaque, unattested sources of raw, unfiltered, and unstructured content as their means of language and communication training and as the source of information used in their responses.
While this approach has proven to be effective in generating natural language, it has also been inconsistent and, at times, significantly lacking in integrity in its responses. While it may provide information, it does not necessarily provide knowledge.
To be truly useful, generative AI must be able to separate language and communication training from the acquisition of knowledge to be used in its responses. This will allow LLMs to not only generate coherent and fluent language but also to provide accurate and reliable information to users. However, in a culture that values self-proclaimed influencers where transparency and accuracy is secondary, it has become increasingly challenging to separate reliable information from misinformation and knowledge from ignorance. This poses a significant obstacle for AI algorithms that strive to provide accurate and trustworthy responses.”
“The danger of generative AI is that it lacks the ability to understand misinformation, leading to incorrectly equating correlation with causation based on incomplete/inaccurate data or lack of contextual awareness required to understand sensitive dependencies between data sets. The unintended consequence is technology shaping societal views on politics, culture and science.”

The Chatter around ChatGPT
In a new TED Talk, OpenAI co-founder and president Greg Brockman shows off the power and potential of the all-new ChatGPT plugins…and the results are stunning.
Thanks to ChatGPT plugins, ChatGPT can now traverse the internet and interact with third-party services and applications, resulting in AI agents that can take actions in the real world to help us with our work.
In the talk, Brockman shows off how knowledge workers will soon work hand-in-hand with machines—and how this is going to start changing things months (or even weeks) from now, not years. Listen here and decode what it means for the future of work.

Significant updates from Google --
AI research team, Brain, would merge with DeepMind, creating Google DeepMind.
Google is working on a project titled “Magi.” It involves completing transactions, such as buying shoes or booking flight — all while still incorporating the existing – and lucrative – Google search ads. New York Times has confirmed some AI features will roll out in the US this year and that ads will remain a part of AI-powered search results.
Google announced Bard had been updated with new features to help you code.
Bard can now generate code and help you debug code. As these updates rolled out, reporting from Bloomberg revealed that some Google employees think the company is making ethical lapses by rushing the development of AI tools, particularly around Bard and the accuracy of its responses.

Feeling the Heat
AI companies like OpenAI are coming under fire for how AI tools are trained, and social media channels like Reddit and Twitter are pushing back.
Reddit, which is often scraped to train language models, just announced it would charge for API access, in order to stop AI companies from training models on Reddit data without compensation. And Elon Musk publicly threatened to sue Microsoft for, he says, “illegally using Twitter data” to train models. Other companies are sure to follow suit.
An investigative report by the Washington Post recently found that large language models from Google and Meta trained on data from major websites like Wikipedia, The New York Times, and Kickstarter. In one example, the Post found models had trained on an ebook piracy site and likely did not have permission to use the data it trained on. Not to mention, the copyright symbol appeared more than 200 million times in the data set the Post studied.
We’ve arrived at a fork in the road, and a decision must now be made.
To be blunt, choosing the wrong path forward could result in the complete implosion of the creative community.
AI should be embraced as a creative tool, not as a replacement to human creators!
