😺 HUGE new ChatGPT update

PLUS: answering the question you're all thinking...

Welcome, humans.

Kudos to all of y’all who are putting in the extra work to stay ahead of AI. We know it’s not easy. Excited to continue growing and learning with you, ya smartie-pants!

Here’s what’s going on in AI today:

  • Businesses can now train ChatGPT on their data.

  • Meta released a powerful speech-to-speech model for 100 languages.

  • Microsoft’s AI design tool is available in Edge.

  • Anyone can now use ElevenLabs’ voice models!

Businesses Can Now Train ChatGPT On Their Data.

OpenAI is letting users upload their data to ChatGPT-3.5 so it can execute use cases specifically tailored to your business.

In other words, fine-tuning.

Fine-tuning is when you customize an AI with instructions specific to you, such as marketing material, writing samples, or code formatting. Think of it as setting your preferences on a dating app…

Fine-tuning ChatGPT-3.5 trains it to perform a task in a very particular way, like writing or coding in your brand's distinct style. (Heads up: Fine-tuning ChatGPT-4 is arriving this fall).

Here’s our take: Great prompt engineering is still good enough for handling most tasks.

You’ll want to fine-tune ChatGPT when you require an output that's so specific, it can't be simply described in a prompt.

For example, in customer support, you'll need to fine-tune ChatGPT with:

  • Hundreds of real support examples.

  • Product documentation.

  • Thousands of FAQs.

If this sounds like you, here’s OpenAI’s full fine-tuning guide. But two things to keep in mind:

  1. It’s expensive — 8x more expensive than just using ChatGPT-3.5 (the base model).

  2. Data privacy — Although OpenAI says it won’t misuse your business’ data, some users are dubious.


Pair Your Business’ Data With ChatGPT (While In Private Mode).

ChatGPT is like a corporate consultant who knows nothing about your business.

ChatGPT + DreamFactory is like an in-house advisor that knows everything about your business.

What’s DreamFactory?

DreamFactory is a magical ChatGPT plugin generator that enables you to connect your business data to ChatGPT through APIs ( code that translates your data to the AI).

DreamFactory is built with securing in mind, so no one else can see your API unless you want them to.

AI Will Change Investing, But Not Yet.

Made in Midjourney

This is one of those questions that everyone thinks, but no one says out loud: how can AI make us better investors?

The answer: no one knows, (except Jim Simons, who's been beating the market for decades through algorithmic trading).

A recent FT article sheds some light on this, revealing that wealth management firms are interested in AI, but are having trouble using and affording it. Mini-recession vibes, am I right?!

Looking forward, though, we could see the finance industry use AI to significantly speed up processes like:

  • Identifying companies to invest in.

  • Analyzing compliance, research, and reports.

  • Tailoring portfolios to align with client preferences.
