I feel like Im hearing something new about AI every day. Between constant disucssion on social media platforms , and seeing people generate their own content and psot it.

Funny story, i saw a super long domino ripple video that also produced the Mario theme song. I was super impressed, only to find out it was AI!!! lol

I dont have any specific platforms, channels, or people i follow …it’s just all around all the time

Many sources in my case f.e SEO topics and all of it of a different kind. Read, combine, develop :wink: Do not listen to the mainstream of people without expertise on the subject of AI - keep on developing your skills! BR Ronald

Well, keeping up with the trends is easy, because you just watch what is trending. :slight_smile:

But that’s a different thing to being ‘up to date’ or aware of ‘the state of the art’ when so, so much is going on in research and development right now, and with it all being an incredibly high-stakes business, most of the players are keeping their cards very close to their chest, the ones truly holding good cards don’t want to tip their hand, and the ones bragging are also likely to be the ones bluffing…

We all have to truly understand that OpenAI blindsided a lot of the smartest folks in AI when they built and released ChatGPT, despite those scientists often sharing research with one another, etc. If Google couldn’t tell what OpenAI was doing, with all the collaboration there has been between them, all the shared contacts and research, then we can pretty much say that nobody is really sure they really know what is going on right now.

As you say, it is really more about staying ahead of the curve, or at least not falling behind it.

I do keep an eye on scientific journals, but also always remember what I said above about bluffing. The good journals help weed out some of the news that doesn’t really hold up, but even so, a lot of the stuff out in the open is released for advantage, to impress investors (or to calm them down).

Definitely keep an eye on the Press sections of DeepMind, OpenAI, Google and Bing, but the best advice is to keep your eyes wide open to what’s going on in the periphery, and be healthily sceptical about what is published and shared.

• Which online platforms or websites do you rely on for the most accurate and up-to-date AI news and insights?
:partying_face:Answer: Mainly through Twitter, Telegram, I think Telegram has a wider source of information, and Twitter can verify the information

• Are there specific AI-related blogs, podcasts, or newsletters that you find particularly valuable in keeping you informed?
:partying_face:Answer: The tweets of relevant people, especially the blogs of cutting-edge scientists, I was very enlightened after reading Sam Altman’s blog that day.

• Do you engage in AI-focused communities, forums, or social media groups to exchange ideas and stay abreast of the latest trends?
:partying_face:Answer: Yes, I often try my best to give advice to others, because artificial intelligence is related to the future of all mankind, if my idea is feasible, but because of my current situation, it would be a pity, You might say, “Hey man, you can get rich with these ideas!”, and yes yes, currency will always be with me and be one of my creeds as long as I’m a physical being, but this time Artificial intelligence is like an effervescent tablet dropped into a carbonated drink. The speed of development makes me think that it is the right way to share ideas and inspire those who have the ability to realize this idea. Then some kind of In a sense, my value has been realized.

• How do conferences, webinars, or industry events play a role in expanding your AI knowledge?
:partying_face:Answer: cognition. For example: you are discussing something, but I don’t know much about it, but I am good at capturing keywords, just like when Ammon mentioned Sam Altman a long time ago, I was just getting into artificial intelligence not long ago, but my keen Realizing that this person has deep insights in this regard, I started searching for all information about this person, followed his twitter, and then furthered his blog and his thoughts on the future. This kind of personal contact with the essence of affairs It’s a great feeling, especially since we are about to face the false information flying all over the sky, this kind of “first-hand” information is very valuable. Slowly, I began to summarize an efficient thinking model: learning, thinking, and creating. (Some people have found that they have caught a big fish, hahaha, if you can really understand my thoughts, then you may have caught a big fish. This is my current learning experience, I hope it will help you)

• Are there any specific AI influencers, thought leaders, or researchers whose work you follow and find inspiring?
:partying_face:Answer: Socrates, Jobs, Sam Altman, Larry Page, well, add Musk (I’m afraid he will be sad when he finds out, hahaha), OK, let’s briefly talk about this wonderful combination: Su Grady’s efficient thinking model can help me learn new fields faster and think about its essence; Jobs’ pursuit of beauty and unique insights into technology balance my blind worship of technology; Sam Altman let me see a certain A kind of hope, or an interesting future; Larry Page’s vision, he is very clear that in the near future artificial intelligence will have self-awareness (maybe it already has it now, but the artificial intelligence master hides himself and quietly observes and evaluates Humans), so why not get along with AI on an equal footing before then? At least this is more gentlemanly, I think Larry Page should be a romantic and elegant person at heart; Musk’s bravery and spirit of exploration, “fearlessness” and “dedication” require great courage, especially when most people will hope When pinned on a person, I think this may be the reason for Musk’s recent mental haggardness. His concerns about artificial intelligence are reasonable, but what he worries about is not artificial intelligence itself, but the people who use artificial intelligence. In any case, I currently hope that he can conduct deeper research and upgrades on BCI technology and starship engines. These two technologies are too important for the development of our civilization. At least they can help us get tickets to rule the galaxy. Instead of continuing to stay on Mother Earth (Maybe Mother Earth will say: “My children have grown up, why are they still staying at home, they should go out and see the wider universe instead of wasting time at home playing children’s games .”)

It’s a lot of words each time, but please don’t mind me, it’s a good meal, trust me. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Just had this exact video come across my FYP over the weekend.

He’s got a ton of those videos on his page and they’re all pretty convincing. We’re still so early in this AI game.

So true. They’re are some huge publications and media outlets that have discussed AI and it’s pretty clear they know very little about the space.

This is excellent advice!

Checking in on scientific journals will leave us much more equipped to spot where the larger media outlets have gotten things wrong.

Also, an excellent point about OpenAI. It does feel like the space as a whole has been caught a bit off guard and it’s altered how quickly these changes are being implemented. The next few years should be incredibly exciting.

Great Question :thinking:
It’s hard to miss these days, so I never considered any central resource i could turn to for more insight regarding AI.

Im going to read what others say and start from there!
