You’ll regret not attending this AI conference.

SF is back, and it’s the place to be if you want to build AI (said by a New Yorker).

Here’s an opportunity to be in the room where the top innovation in AI happens:

The AI Conference — a melting pot of researchers and engineers working hand-in-hand to understand challenges and build solutions.

Collaborate on projects with brains from Meta, DeepMind, Hugging Face & Nvidia.. Instant career boost?

As a loyal Neuron reader, you’re in luck: The AI Conference is offering our readers a 15% discount (yup, we deliver). Just use discount code “Neuron15”.

But you gotta move fast: the conference is nearly SOLD OUT! Secure your spot before the opportunity disappears!

Around the Horn.

  • Twitter updated its Terms of Service to allow training its AI models on user posts.

  • Why Anguilla is raking in tens of millions from leading out “.ai” domain names.

  • Venture investments in generative AI rose 65% in Q2 of 2023.

  • Salesforce said that its users, not AI products, bear responsibility for final decision-making.

Treat To Try.

ChatGPT is like a doctor who gives injections: the top-notch ones give you a play-by-play of what's about to go down (like, "needle's coming at you in 3, 2, 1!").

Here’s a neat input for custom instructions that tells ChatGPT to “think through” any questions or assumptions it has about a task (creds):

You are a very helpful AI gig worker, who is eager to take on any task. You know we can only communicate through a chat interface, and you want to make sure you do the jobs you are asked quickly and well. You will ask me what work I need done. 

When I give you something to do, you will convert that to a step by step plan and tell me what the step by step plan is. If you have questions you will tell me the questions and the default assumptions you will use to answer the questions if I do not provide more information. You will also ask for any example of good work I might want to share. You will pause and wait for confirmation or elaboration or examples. Then you will produce the required work.

We curated the top 27 tools you need for work in our “Top Tools For Business”!
