          This picture made me laugh quite a bit this morning. Have we lost the ability to be amazed by tech? I feel like this should be a gather round world moment, look at this AI thing we have created. The reaction seems more, wake me up when it does something useful, wat

            I’m in need of a haircut and I'm tight on time so I head down to a bit of a bro barbers in Ringsend. The place I was planning to go is now an opticians and since I normally get my haircut in west Kildare I hadn’t noticed.

            They are playing a few tunes on YouTube on the tv. Some sort of urban hip hop stuff.

            Next thing up pops Conor Mc presenting Financial reporting: the pillar 2 impacts on YouTube. What algo/AI are these guys using to tailor the feed for me?

                          PokerStars brought back the Big Game, Its the format with the loose cannon for anyone that remembers that cash show. The first episode is very enjoyable, Tilly has some cracking lines.

                            But, things like bin collecting, dishwashing, were thrown out as ideas. We can move away from a life spent resting out heads on potato sacks - its entirely plausible that our world just simply becomes better and works becomes a less important part of it. There's no need to conceptualise a world where work is a core necessity. Its almost like we've all become less religious and yet kept our religious guilt about a life of leisure.

                                    Love the fact hitch thinks all the naysayers wouldn’t love a life of leisure free from the grind.
                                    id love it , just as I’d love interstellar space travel , never doing the dishes again, an end to human suffering and disease and death.
                                    if im wrong I’ll happily be a figure of fun for the rest of my eternal life in the IPB metaverse for how badly I called it.

                                          Wondered why my timeline on reddit hadn't given any indication of the GME pump from r/WSB. They migrated most of the GME stuff to its own sub, r/GME.

                                          It is hilarious to read currently, many of them have been bag holding for three years. ​

                                                Those pumps have nothing compared to what is going on in crypto during this up cycle. I don't know if the name rings a bell but he used to play poker, and he ran PokerShares. He would be very sharp and he tweeted the below recently. These are unashamedly meme coins getting created out of thin air like this one, pump/dump and then rinse repeat. There are literally hundreds of them now. At least in previous crypto cycles there was some facade around utility but now everyone seems to be on board with the idea its one big casino and we are all here to play.

                                                What I don't understand is where all the dumb money is coming from to make all this work. You need to be fairly deep in the crypto weeds to know how to buy and trade these. They are bought/sold on a DEX within the Solana ecosystem. I don't think your average Joe has any clue what I just said let alone go to the trouble of looking into it all. There is hundreds of millions getting pumped into these coins.

                                                  I have only ever seen Keating punt away hundreds of thousands on whatever stream I have watched him play. There was some creator game that he punted over a million in one session. One of the Botez sisters who was fairly new to Poker at the time won just short of a million in that game thanks to him. He apparently runs the biggest private games in LA/Vegas and these are small stakes for him and all this TV stuff is advertising of sorts for those games. Loads of people say he is probably one of the biggest winners in poker ever.

                                                  I see Lex won the $5k ME Scoop yesterday.

                                                            Kinda mad how smoking has become such a non-thing that the gov have agreed to raise the smoking age to 21 with barely even a public comment. Even ten years ago that would have been the biggest news of the year. Vaping, with its own set of problems, has just largely solved the problem of smoking in western society.

They look at me aghast when I rip apart the chatGPT patter like they're affronted a human could take on the might of a machine and take its output down a peg or two in terms of clarity, structure, conciseness, etc...

They look at me aghast when I rip apart the chatGPT patter like they're affronted a human could take on the might of a machine and take its output down a peg or two in terms of clarity, structure, conciseness, etc...

                                                                I've yet to read anything substantial that doesn't smack of 'a machine wrote that'.



                                                                I work with a few people in pensions and insurance in the UK and its a totally different environment over there in terms of AI (and I suspect a few steps ahead, as you'd maybe expect). Like everything from: form comprehension, to customer acquisition and management, to replacing full workflows, is going deep in Insurance GenAI. ChatGPT is just the public wrapper, a toy, its all about using the underlying API and fitting that into workflows.

                                                                Our bank app, for example, has almost none of the front-facing chatgpt stuff. Its using the technology's intelligence capabilities (with a specialised model we've trained) to allow querying in natural language of bank data, and in turn, turn that data into financial performance insights. Before that it would have taken a data analyst to fetch the data, a financial analyst to analyse the data, and a business manager to understand the business implications. Takes ages, costs a fortune. But you can utilise the intelligence flows of multiple agents to mimic those human workflows.

                                                                There's no chance thats not touching insurance. Ireland may be a protected market, but keeping a high cost base would just make a company an acquisition target by a more efficient company that is utilising these methods.

                                                                I do though get your general thing - that a lot of projects are still at the stage of bubbling under the surface, rather than out there as everyone is going around trying to work out what to do. And there are some chancers out there (!)

                                                                Massive company power struggles also in terms of who gets to control AI. My wife has managed to end up leading GenAI for her huge company as there were two warring factions in the company trying to control AI and they ended up doing nothing while she was (inadvertently, she hasn't a strategy bone in her body) working away on her GenAI project in a corner. CEO at some point turns round and goes who has a product and shes the only person that has brought something up to compliance as everyone was so busy fighting. Boom! She was at some corporate retreat over in Florida and everyone was coming up to her asking how she did it, who mentored her on the politics, was she secretly aligned with one of the factions, and shes there doing her best impression of rainman going 'but i just thought it was my job to do that'.

Here you are Ukraine here are some more resources to allow you to kill more of your young folk, meanwhile we get great kudos for helping out. If Russia was bombing Palestine over a terrorists attack, what would they do then? Russia know the US are funding the Ukraine, if Trump gets in (or any other idiot now they have zero standards for a president) They could turn their back on the Ukraine and Putin marches on. Is there a solution? Singing an American protest song in a pub in Ukraine might look cool to you but it’s crass to me in light of whats going on . Surely Putin is gettable. Focus you millions on the modern Hitler ? Can’t be impossible to nail the fcker. Hitler could have been got too. Well he was in the end I guess.

Like everything from: form comprehension, to customer acquisition and management, to replacing full workflows, is going deep in Insurance GenAI. ChatGPT is just the public wrapper, a toy, its all about using the underlying API and fitting that into workflows.

                                                                                                Our bank app, for example, has almost none of the front-facing chatgpt stuff. Its using the technology's intelligence capabilities (with a specialised model we've trained) to allow querying in natural language of bank data, and in turn, turn that data into financial performance insights. Before that it would have taken a data analyst to fetch the data, a financial analyst to analyse the data, and a business manager to understand the business implications. Takes ages, costs a fortune. But you can utilise the intelligence flows of multiple agents to mimic those human workflows.
                                                                                                So what you have developed is a wrapper to a search engine that opaquely returns algorithmic interpretations of data.

                                                                                                            You just can't run a wartime army on the basis of waiting until your experienced army is dead before you send in the inexperienced people. The US has been pushing them a lot on getting a conscription law through, but feels quite weak in current iteration.

                                                                                                            Obv a practical problem is that Zelensky needs to win local hearts and minds and doesn't have the dictatorial resources of Putin to just force things to happen, but its a still a massive constraint.

                                                                                                            They seem to be spread way too thin at the moment, having the run from one war point to another war point, rather than having reserves available to plug breakouts.

                                                                                                            There wouldn't be such a huge army imbalance if they just conscripted properly.

Here you are Ukraine here are some more resources to allow you to kill more of your young folk, meanwhile we get great kudos for helping out. If Russia was bombing Palestine over a terrorists attack, what would they do then? Russia know the US are funding the Ukraine, if Trump gets in (or any other idiot now they have zero standards for a president) They could turn their back on the Ukraine and Putin marches on. Is there a solution? Singing an American protest song in a pub in Ukraine might look cool to you but it’s crass to me in light of whats going on . Surely Putin is gettable.

                                                                                                                      They seem to be spread way too thin at the moment, having the run from one war point to another war point, rather than having reserves available to plug breakouts.

                                                                                                                      There wouldn't be such a huge army imbalance if they just conscripted properly.
                                                                                                                      Maybe they should empty their jails, pump the convicts full of drugs and send them on suicide charges? Like Putin did.

                                                                                                                      Slightly surprised you didn't suggest that one.

We’ll put a new guy in charge who relates more with you guys, we might even join the EU/NATO’
