Over the summer I put the "ai" into myhub.ai, turning my Hub into a personalised GPT wrapper. I've been experimenting ever since.
My current experiments focus on finding the "sweet spots" where a large language model like ChatGPT can best help Hub Editors extract more value from their collections of knowledge and notes. Since last week, moreover, I've also been investigating how your visitors could chat with your Hub via GPTs on OpenAI's upcoming GPT Store.
For now, this short video sets out how the pilot integration currently works, as well as the fuller integration planned next:
I've launched six different experiments so far, focusing on:
Experiments 4-6 are still underway so I haven't written up all my findings yet, but so far I have:
But I have even more prompts which produce results which are impressive at first glance but then, upon careful examination, are more trouble than they're worth. More on that later this year.
There are now ~250 resources on my Hub tagged #AI. Most of those added recently are also tagged #llm, for Large Language Model.
This is certainly the case for the 8 resources I Hubbed one week in October. An AI summary, courtesy of one of the prompts tested in Experiment 1, can be found in the experiments wiki: C-5-AllNotes-response-P1b (scroll down to ChatGPT's response).
But while I would have loved to give you an AI-created editorial summarising those resources, results have been reliably unreliable. However, that's not always a bad thing:
"ChatGPT's hallucination, in other words, was a connection that the author did not make. While that makes it a false summary of the author's work, that doesn't mean that it's wrong as a stand alone statement. But it also doesn't mean that it's right."
- Experiment 1 analysis > editorial content
Experiments 5 & 6, still underway, build on this to focus on exploiting ChatGPT's creativity by asking for ideas created by combining resources. Examples ideas from last week's resources ranged from AI-Enhanced Creative Writing Tool ("a browser extension similar to HARPA AI that integrates with AutoGen and leverages its conversational capabilities... generating creative content, helping with research, and even suggesting conversational dialogue for characters in stories") through to AI-Enhanced Fact-Checking Browser Extension ("combines the fact-checking capabilities of knowledge graphs with Google Bard's information retrieval abilities. Users can verify the accuracy of information on webpages in real-time..."). All 10 ideas can be found in C-5-AllNotes-response-P5.md.
Much more is on the way, from a post I plan to publish on Medium written by my first GPT through to more progress on knowledge visualisation. So hang on, this is going to get interesting.
