    of AI Tools, Strategies & Tips to Drive Growth June 30th 2023
  2. pa.ag @peakaceag 7 Midjourney V5 has gotten REALLY good… just

    wow! Our all-time favourite AI text-to-image generation tool that's available right now: Source: https://www.midjourney.com/ & https://pa.ag/3C11Zwo
  3. Prompting is how humans can talk to AI. It's a

    way to express what we want and how we want it, usually done with words. Prompt(ing)?
  4. pa.ag @peakaceag 10 Need help and/or inspiration? Try DS Prompt

    Builder: Source: https://pa.ag/3JbNxFM Super-simple drag & drop prompt building based on visual elements to choose style, lightning, etc.
  5. pa.ag @peakaceag 11 Creating AI prompts is a key skill

    for any generative AI Whoever formulates the best, most creative and most unique AI prompts will create the best content (and save AI/API credits) Source: https://promptbase.com There is a marketplace (promptbase.com), which is dedicated to trading prompts – use it for inspiration!

    flair.ai AI-generated product photography using a drag-and-drop approach that allows you to place product imagery in literally any environment you can think of: Source: https://pa.ag/3ZNrFqi
  7. pa.ag @peakaceag 14 cleanup.pictures Remove any unwanted object, defect or

    even people from your picture in seconds Source: https://cleanup.pictures
  8. pa.ag @peakaceag 16 Recommended use-cases for generative image AI Even

    though we‘re still at an early stage, the uses mentioned below are very much possible today and allows for time and cost savings, as well as efficiency gains: Header images e.g., for blog posts or newsletters Social images e.g., for your various feeds such as LinkedIn, Insta, etc. Images for slides e.g., for pitch presentations, slide decks or story boards Image modification e.g., clean-ups, object removal, up-scaling, etc.
  9. pa.ag @peakaceag 17 Interesting but equally scary use-case from Osaka

    Univ. “We propose a new method based on a diffusion model (DM) to reconstruct images from human brain activity obtained via fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging)” Source: https://pa.ag/3ZBaHvG Reconstructing visual experiences from human brain activity offers a unique way to understand how the brain represents the world, and to interpret the connection between computer vision models and our visual system.
  10. 50% of AI researchers believe there’s a 10% or greater

    chance that humans will go extinct from our inability to control AI. Source: https://pa.ag/41VW8DV
  11. A bit like… catching a flight when 50% of engineers

    think there's a 10% chance that everyone on it will die. Would you get on the plane? Source: https://pa.ag/42hDGWm
  12. pa.ag @peakaceag 22 Voice- & face cloning is already very

    much possible Granted, it’s not perfect just yet, but it’ll do the trick. Solutions such as ElevenLabs.io or frameworks such as DeepFaceLab are available for free/at-minimum cost, to everybody: Source: https://pa.ag/3mIlAgF Good afternoon, everybody, this is President Obama speaking! My dear friend Bastian asked me to say hello. De-age the face Replace the head
  13. pa.ag @peakaceag 23 AI-powered scam caused $622k fraud In China,

    AI-powered face-swapping was used to impersonate a friend during a live video call; the scammers received a transfer of 4.3 million Yuan: Source: https://pa.ag/3WH8wpz
  14. pa.ag @peakaceag 24 AI-generated image caused a brief stock market

    dip A fake image showing an explosion near the Pentagon was shared by multiple verified Twitter accounts last Monday, causing confusion and a brief dip in the stock market: Source: https://pa.ag/434n6db
  15. pa.ag @peakaceag 27 What is a large language model (good

    at)? Source: https://pa.ag/3ZDGZpE A LLM is a (deep) learning algorithm that can recognize, summarize, translate, predict and generate text and other content based on knowledge gained from massive datasets.
  16. pa.ag @peakaceag 28 This is very important to understand: These

    LLMs don’t “write” anything. They generate text based on the number of parameters used in their training, using content they've encountered before.
  17. pa.ag @peakaceag 29 A timeline of AI and recently released

    (L)LMs Source: https://pa.ag/3Ld7yxv
  18. pa.ag @peakaceag 30 Larger data sets = (usually) better results

    Googles’ MUM uses a text-to-text Transfer Transformer (T5) trained on the Colossal Clean Crawled Corpus (C4), which is significantly larger than BERT's training data Source: https://pa.ag/3EFfRfT (MUM) Basis: Web crawl (220 TB) with approx. 3 billion web pages (BERT) Basis: Wikipedia with approx. 56 million articles VS From a (Google) marketing standpoint it's easy to say that MUM is 10 times smarter than BERT…
  19. pa.ag @peakaceag 31 At least equally important: Training data quality

    “A Comprehensive Analysis of Datasets Used to Train GPT-1, GPT-2, GPT-3, GPT-NeoX- 20B, Megatron-11B, MT-NLG, […]“ Source: https://pa.ag/3UId4KA There are many more... ▪ Megatron-Turing NLG (Microsoft & Nvidia): 530 billion ▪ Pathways Language Model 2 (Google): 540 billion ▪ WuDao 2.0 (Beijing Academy of AI): 1.5 trillion
  20. pa.ag @peakaceag 32 Can you really trust the info in

    those training data sets? The idea: to precisely time malicious modifications just before a snapshot for inclusion in a web-scale dataset, aka “Frontrunning data poisoning”: Source: https://pa.ag/3LuJJ4L If an attacker can precisely time malicious modifications just prior to a snapshot for inclusion […], they can front-run the collection procedure. […] Even if a content moderator detects and reverts malicious modifications after-the-fact, the attacker’s malicious content will persist […]
  21. “When a domain that hosts an image in a distributed

    data set expires, anyone can pay to take ownership and thereby gain the ability to return arbitrary content [malware, etc.]” You still have all those expired domains? You‘ll like this…
  22. pa.ag @peakaceag 34 Problems & challenges with using large language

    models Aside from misinformation, offensive content and hallucination, there’s lots more to know: Source: https://pa.ag/3tuOwJ9 Computing power The quality of the results improves as the size of the LLMs increases. Gains are incremental, while costs increase exponentially. Biased training data If biased data is used, the system will likely show the same bias when making decisions in practice. Environmental impact Training a large transformer model produces 5,680% more carbon emissions than one human per year. Static perspectives Large language models are usually trained once and used over long periods of time.
  23. pa.ag @peakaceag 35 A real-world “bias example” from Amazon The

    company developed an AI to help scale recruiting – which didn’t work so well… Source: https://pa.ag/4228GtP Amazon’s computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period. Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech industry. […] In effect, Amazon’s system taught itself that male candidates were preferable. It penalised resumes that included the word “women’s” and downgraded graduates of two all-women’s colleges.
  24. Be very, very mindful of the data you put into

    any of those tools. #confidentiality #dataprotection
  25. pa.ag @peakaceag 41 Overview of AI-based content generation tools Depending

    on your needs and desired outcome, I am sure you’ll find one you like:
  26. e.g., use Jasper helping you to write sales copy (for

    outreach) or content drafts for a blog post, etc. What to use it for?
  27. pa.ag @peakaceag 44 "As an AI language model" query reveals

    just some of the many issues (e.g., lack of quality control, fakes, etc.) Sources: https://pa.ag/3nuowxU & https://pa.ag/3ALso0B

    waitlist (if you’re not already on it): g.co/Labs (US IP/VPN needed) Source: https://pa.ag/433w36x
  50. Your marketing team needs to be thinking about adapting their

    SEO strategy, as obtaining organic traffic is likely to get much more difficult in the future. Why should you care?
  51. Organic search results will change, but so will ad creation

    and the integration of ads into the search results. Google to introduce generative AI for ads as well
  52. pa.ag @peakaceag 82 Meanwhile… automated RSAs based on OpenAI’s API

    Leverage OpenAI’s API to use the maximum number of Google responsive search ads assets and, in turn, boost your paid search campaigns: Source: https://pa.ag/40GipUM & https://pa.ag/3phXv1B Another interesting idea:
  53. pa.ag @peakaceag 83 Automation at scale through OpenAI’s APIs Give

    it a try using the OpenAI Playground for building/testing your own apps: Source: https://platform.openai.com/playground/
  54. pa.ag @peakaceag 84 The new kid (concept) in town: Auto-GPT

    “The main feature is the ability to use ChatGPT to independently create prompts to plan how to complete a task and then create more prompts for finishing that task.” Source: https://pa.ag/3oWAuRr If the AI agent finds itself unable to complete the task, it will create new prompts to figure out how to proceed. [… ] Auto-GPT is self-prompting, removing the need for creative and detailed prompts. All it needs is a set of goals for a task to complete.
  55. Built from the ground up with true multimodality, high efficiency

    in using external tools/APIs, memory capabilities, etc. Google also is working on a brand-new model: Gemini
  56. A multimodal AI can ingest knowledge/input from multiple sources (e.g.,

    text, audio, video, gesture, …) and utilise it to solve tasks involving any modality Multimodality?
  57. pa.ag @peakaceag 88 Amazon entering the game with impressive initial

    results And their very own (pretty horrible) on-site search will most likely undergo a full makeover as well: Source: https://pa.ag/3Fl5ZKe & https://pa.ag/3WUrTfb Amazon has released a new LM that outperforms GPT-3.5 on ScienceQA by 16 percentage points, or with 75.1% to 91.6% accuracy
  58. pa.ag @peakaceag 89 Or, if you believe in Mr. Gates,

    maybe Amazon (and Google Search) will just disappear?! Source: https://pa.ag/43dXmez “The technology could radically change user behaviour resulting in people never needing to visit a search website again […] “
  59. pa.ag @peakaceag 90 Microsoft to broadly roll-out their MS365 Copilot

    This isn't strictly a topic for growth, but "interacting with AI“ will soon be part of your daily (work) activities – and you might not even know it: Sources: https://pa.ag/3ASowLb & https://pa.ag/43z5tC0 Invoking Windows Copilot is easy – the button is front and center on your taskbar – simple to find and use. Once open, the Windows Copilot side bar stays consistent across your apps, programs and windows, always available to act as your personal assistant.
  60. pa.ag @peakaceag 93 LLMs will start using APIs/3rd party data

    for better results This paper shows that LMs can teach themselves to use external tools via simple APIs Source: https://pa.ag/3T1Nq3z Toolformer: A model trained to decide which APIs to call, when to call them, what arguments to pass, and how to best incorporate the results into future token prediction.
  61. Shifting towards models which only use the most relevant subset

    of their parameters vs. running through every single one > Massive sparse expert models New LLM architecture?
  62. pa.ag @peakaceag 95 Planning for Artificial General Intelligence and beyond

    “As our systems get closer to AGI, we are becoming increasingly cautious with the creation and deployment of our models.” Source: https://pa.ag/3mxjSOU The first AGI will be just a point along the continuum of intelligence. We think it’s likely that progress will continue from there […] If this is true, the world could become extremely different from how it is today, and the risks could be extraordinary. A misaligned super intelligent AGI could cause grievous harm to the world; an autocratic regime with a decisive superintelligence lead could do that too.
  63. pa.ag @peakaceag 96 The best part of this OpenAI post

    though? Source: https://pa.ag/3mxjSOU Successfully transitioning to a world with superintelligence is perhaps the most important— and hopeful, and scary—project in human history. Success is far from guaranteed, and the stakes (boundless downside and boundless upside) will hopefully unite all of us.
  64. pa.ag @peakaceag 98 Meanwhile: World’s first AI-flown fighter jet can

    dogfight In a joint project between DARPA and the US Air Force, a special aircraft called the X-62 Vista became the first tactical aircraft to be piloted by AI: Source: https://pa.ag/3JtRtlS The jet was under the control of one of four different AI algorithms at any given time during the tests. […] This included dogfighting in simulated combat missions, as well as takeoffs and landings
