00:31:20 James Newton: The Idaho suburb of Seattle? I love that we have online meetings and people can all over can join. 

00:31:50 James Newton: I’m looking forward to asking the Seattle people about surviving the rain after the storms here in SoCal.

00:34:51 James Newton: RjK for some reason, clicking on those links didn’t work for me, but copy paste does it. Cool stuff!

00:54:36 James Newton: Ask ChatGPT to solve any super simple riddle: e.g. “Mary’s mother has 2 boys and a girl. The boys are Tom and Dick, what is the girls name?” And it has zero clue. No logical ability. All it’s doing is quoting human writing back at us. That’s valuable, but it’s NOT AI in any sense of the word. 

00:55:32 RJK: It seems to be good (Not perfect) at making software.

00:56:19 Lloyd Moore: What is a Goathead?

From ChatGPT: A goathead is a common name for a plant called Tribulus terrestris, it is also known as puncturevine. It’s a low-growing herbaceous plant that is native to the Mediterranean region and parts of Asia, but has since spread to other parts of the world. It is considered a weed because it is invasive and difficult to control.

The plant produces small, hard, round fruits that contain several seeds. The seeds are often called “goatheads” because they are covered in small, sharp spines that can easily puncture bike tires, shoes, and other items. The spines can also cause skin irritation and infection.

Goathead is often a problem in gardens, lawns, and other areas where people walk or bike. It is a tough weed that can survive in poor soil and hot, dry conditions. The best way to control it is to remove the plants before they produce seeds, and to use physical barriers such as mulch to prevent the plants from growing.

00:58:31 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: I feel the potential of GPT is phenomenal. Yes it doesn’t get the most accurate answers. Does make simple math mistakes.

00:58:39 James Newton: https://photos.app.goo.gl/TC4ayRYVp7nnkV7Q7 

00:58:59 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: However in the creative area like writing articles, ad copies, social media posts – its better than almost any other human

00:59:28 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: It’s also awesome at writing code – not in full but as an assistant it can save hours of time

00:59:39 RJK: I would say it is still a “C”.  It does better at the creative area than some people.

00:59:58 RJK: I wonder what the NEXT AI can do.

01:00:01 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: Ask a fish to climb a tree – it won’t do well

01:00:40 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: AI (rather Machine learning) – is speeding up research and development in lots of industries like nuclear energy, chemistry, etc

01:01:01 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: It’s like getting a 1000 extra scientists overnight who work 24×7 depending on how many servers you can buy

01:01:41 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: The recent energy innovation around nuclear fusion was a result of using AI + ML in the R&D process

01:01:51 RJK: Wow!

01:03:42 Dick Curtiss: Re: Chat GPT — a good discussion — On Point

01:03:52 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: Goes to say that even the most advanced technology can’t beat an experienced human driver

01:03:57 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: Humans are amazing

01:04:11 Mohammad Shabaz Moosa: AI will catch up – is the hope
