Artificial Intelligence Intellect

Artificial Intelligence (AI) should be called Artificial Intellect as its models have aquired a large volume of knowledge from the Internet, but it is not yet that intelligent and can be biased.

Executive Summary

This section contains an executive summary (written by AI) of some issues that arise with AI usage and explores the benefits, dangers and ethics of AI, paying particular attention to the psychological implications of its use.

AI has become an essential part of our modern world, and its use has grown exponentially in recent years. This technology has many advantages that are contributing to the growth of various sectors, but its potential dangers also cannot be overlooked. Either you stay on top of AI or it may get on top of you.

AI still faces a few challenges

One major issue is that AI chat systems (GPT) tend to make up answers (hallucinate) when they don't know the answer to a question or prompt. Some can be told not to do that, so they will simply say they don't know.

Known challenges of LLMs include:

You can think of the Large Language Model as an over-enthusiastic new employee who refuses to stay informed with current events but will always answer every question with absolute confidence. Unfortunately, such an attitude can negatively impact user trust and is not something you want your chatbots to emulate!

Data Aquisition

AI systems "ingest" the data provided to them and store it in "models" for what it assumes to be the real world. This is very resource intensive. Various organisations like Meta (Facebook), Microsoft, or OpenAI, have published large language models (LLM) for download and offline use. Some are uncensored so you can ask it questions that would be unacceptable online.

Retrieval Augmented Generation, or RAG, introduces some serious capabilities to large language models, like the ability to use and leverage your own data. It redirects the LLM to retrieve relevant information from authoritative, pre-determined knowledge sources. Organisations have greater control over the generated text output, and users gain insights into how the LLM generates the response.

LocalDocs Plugin (Chat With Your Data)

LocalDocs is a GPT4All feature that allows you to chat with your local files and data. It allows you to utilize powerful local LLMs to chat with private data without any data leaving your computer or server. When using LocalDocs, your LLM will cite the sources that most likely contributed to a given output. Note, even an LLM equipped with LocalDocs can hallucinate. The LocalDocs plugin will utilize your documents to help answer prompts and you will see references appear below the response.

Prompting

To get answers one needs to be skillful with formulating a prompt (question) to get a reasonably good result. The better the prompt, the better the result. You can tell it to reply or write essays in the style of a famous author, or to honestly say when it doesn't know an answer. Be very specific with your prompts.

Image Generation

AI images are getting better all the time. Even videos are possible. We're currently exploring how far we can push this. Some of the images on this website are AI generated.
