Luxottica confirms Data Breach, META unveils custom AI, NATO’s Cyberdefense expands
Unsupervised Learning is a Security, AI, and Meaning-focused podcast that looks at how best to thrive as humans in a post-AI world. It combines original ideas, analysis, and mental models to bring not just the news, but why it matters and how to respond.
Hope you're doing well! This is my annual friendship retreat and I decided to try a format we'll probably do once or twice a year where we give the top stories plus the most interesting pieces of my work and discovery links we've had from the past several months that have driven your interest. Hopefully you'll love being reminded of some of the top ones that you forgot to explore.
Have a great week!

🔟Sam Harris' comments on Elon and Free Speech. Crystal clear, as usual. JAN 2, 2023 | MORE
The best way to do advanced prompting is to combine two techniques: 1) Few-shotting, and 2) Thinking Step by Step. Few-shotting is where you give multiple examples of good answers, and then leave the last one unfinished so it'll know exactly what you want. Telling the AI to "think step by step" tells AI to break the problem down and solve each piece in a sequence. These are ultra-powerful by themselves, but if you COMBINE THEM, it gets silly. It basically unlocks Theory of Mind (ToM) within LLMs, which is where an entity can understand how another entity thinks. BTW, I have been worried for a while that this is how we're going to wake up AI. I feel like ToM is like the gateway drug to consciousness. But that's another post. Here's the chart on how to do this. MAY 1, 2023 | CHART
