Ironically, the very thing your body is not good at is what you need to push it towards.
I’d like to think of exercise not as one monolithic thing but multiple components: - Strength. Not strong enough? Lift weights - Stamina. Get tired easily? Do cardio - Flexibility. Have a stiff body? Do yoga
This is great news! Low calorie diets reversed type 2 diabetes for South Asian people.
Anyone voting “no expectations” is probably lying to himself/herself.
What’s your default attitude towards the future?
9/ What do you suspect / wish GPT4 to be capable of?
8/ That’s about all my guesses. GPT4 might be as big a leap from GPT3 as GPT3 was from GPT2. It’s likely to drop by the first quarter of the next year.
7/ Lastly, I suspect a network of these models to interconnect. A high level planner is inevitable. Which means GPT4 might be able to plan how to query and chain different versions of itself. E.g take input from A, feed it into B, and then process it via C.
6/ GPT4 will likely be multi modal - which means, it’ll input and output text, audio, images or even videos. It’s interesting because now these models have multiple ways of learning the physics of our universe, so expect common sense to go up radically.
5/ This will enable all sorts of applications. It will be able to ask for clarifications, remember your preferences and adapt its responses according to what you like and what you don’t.
4/ The next thing it’ll have is memory. Right now, GPT3 is stateless. It doesn’t remember anything. GPT4 will be a capable of storing information about what you said and then reusing it later.
3/ Almost all of the last 30 years of economic growth has come from digital means. Now imagine an AI model capable of writing apps that solve a specific person’s request. That’s the future we’re headed to.
2/ What this means is nothing less than earth shattering. It will mean that now GPT4 will be capable of getting answers it needs by generating code and executing it. So, things like “find me the cheapest smartphone with 16 mega pixel camera” will get accurate results.
1/ It will likely combine language models and code models into one model. OpenAI has both - codex and davinci - so it makes sense to combine them.
My hunches about what GPT-4 will be capable of 🧵
Just remembered that so many of our ancestors had to suffer exploring evolutionary branches that turned out to be dead ends so that we could inherit the ones that keep us alive.
Level 1: What do I eat? Level 2: How do I go through this boring meeting? Level 3: How do I make enough money? Level 4: Where do I find love? Level 5: How do I stay relevant? Level 6: How do I not lose it all? Level 7: What’s the meaning of life? Level 8: What’s reality?

I love it how when we are on the road, we read and process all the messages and shop names, only to forget them a moment later.
It’s amazing how we go around every single day pretending we will never die.
Investing your identity where random luck plays a role is irrational.
Detach your identity from work and be free forever.
Real estate is a terrible investment: - Rental yields often < fixed deposits - Rental income taxed at full tax rate - Highly illiquid - Requires regular maintenance investment even if unused Still, Indian parents keep pushing their children to take loans to buy real estate.

Leave your email here and my team will get in touch:… It's free, but we will prioritize those who will benefit most from intermittent fasting.
I'm developing an 🤖 AI coach for intermittent fasting. It'll gently guide you to develop a habit of keeping 14 hour daily fasts within 2-3 weeks. Want to beta test it?
You need to rethink life when you see this on your tab manager.
In a way, we should be happier about ageing - we unlock new levels with new powers.
Taking a pause for reflection, the most beautiful thing about life is the capacity for transformation towards whatever you set your eyes on.
My shifts: Slob -> Someone whose core identity is a fit person. Intellectual highs -> intellectual highs while reducing suffering in the world. Nihilism -> Life is an adventure.
How has your self-identity shifted over the last 2 years?
Startup founders. Pre product-market fit: I won’t rest. Post product-market fit: I can’t rest.
News is toxic to our mental health, yet we are addicted to it. What explains that?
Self-doubt is a vicious cycle. Your self-doubt leads to inaction which then leads to further self-doubt.

I'm convinced that proper organization of the million documents that get produced in a company is basically impossible.
Idea: text-to-playlist AI models. Describe your mood in a sentence, and a playlist is generated that matches your mood precisely. Come on @Spotify, do it!
Idea: make humans fall for an AI. use Stable Diffusion for generating stunning profile pictures on Tinder and GPT3 for chat. When the time for a real date comes, send Boston Dynamics robodog :)
Just had a SOTA result on my sleep: 10 hours!
Why are so many physicists averse to the idea of God when it’s clear that we have no idea why our universe exists?

Writing without a topic at hand is a form of therapy.

The biggest intellectual leap humanity made was perhaps the rapid development fundamental physics in the 19th and 20th century. From quantum mechanics to general relativity, we now know how reality works.
It was bitcoin before bitcoin was cool.
Fascinating to hear show Hawala network works. Truly decentralised but completely trust based.
Startup founders, if your team is small, now is the perfect time to go all-remote, permanently. Benefits: - access to great talent from around the world - good for environment - higher productivity of employees - saves rent cost

Plus, by chance, if an idea succeeds, you strike gold.
One benefit of being excited about ideas in general is that you never invest your ego in one specific idea, making you resilient against (inevitable) failures of your ideas.
I guess that's what good teachers/coaches do. There's a lot of value in well-designed curriculums.
