    en-usSeptember 25, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Google's Bard outpaces OpenAI with real-time data extensionsGoogle's Bard integrates real-time data from core services, setting it apart from OpenAI and other competitors.

      Google's new language model, Bard, could potentially surpass OpenAI with its latest extensions feature. These extensions allow Bard to access and utilize real-time information and data from Google's core services, such as flights, hotels, maps, YouTube, and workspaces (including Gmail and Google Drive docs). This integration of generative AI and real-time data makes Bard a powerful tool, potentially outpacing competitors like OpenAI. The extensions are available now on Bard.google.com, and Google is encouraging businesses and individuals to start using them to increase productivity and gain more insights. This development is significant as we reach the end of the first year of the AI renaissance, with Microsoft, OpenAI, and YouTube also making strides in the field. Google's commitment to taking AI seriously and its innovative approach could set the company apart in the competitive landscape.

    • Voice technology and LinkedIn: Two Powerful ToolsVoice technology saves time and keeps focus during driving, while LinkedIn offers access to high-level decision-makers for B2B marketing with a high ROI.

      Voice technology is making our daily tasks more convenient by providing real-time assistance during driving. For instance, instead of manually looking up directions and points of interest on a map, we can now use voice commands to get the information we need. This not only saves time but also keeps our focus on the road. Furthermore, with the increasing adoption of CarPlay and Android Auto, voice-activated technologies are becoming more accessible and integrated into our cars. This means we can find hikes, food stops, or even charge our electric vehicles, all with just a simple voice command. Moreover, when it comes to business-to-business marketing, LinkedIn is a game-changer. With over 950 million members, it offers unparalleled access to high-level decision-makers. LinkedIn's targeted advertising capabilities and the professional nature of the platform make it an essential tool for B2B marketers. In fact, LinkedIn generates two to five times higher return on ad spend than other social media platforms. So, if you're looking to reach CTOs, CFOs, or other senior-level executives, LinkedIn is the place to be. In conclusion, voice technology and LinkedIn are two powerful tools that can significantly enhance our personal and professional lives. Whether it's finding the perfect hike or closing a business deal, they offer convenience, efficiency, and access to valuable information and connections.

    • Google's conversational search engine provides comprehensive and interconnected informationGoogle's new conversational search engine can understand complex queries and provide accurate, relevant, and user-friendly information, including tables, maps, and driving directions, making it a valuable tool for competitive intelligence purposes.

      Google's new conversational search engine is capable of providing comprehensive and interconnected information in response to complex queries. The user in this conversation asked for Tesla Supercharger locations in Texas, the shortest distances between them, and even went on to ask about the biggest uncovered area in the United States with the least density of Tesla Superchargers. The search engine not only provided the requested information but also offered additional suggestions and ideas, such as entertainment options for keeping kids entertained during long drives. The engine was able to understand the context of the user's queries and provide accurate and relevant information in a user-friendly format, including tables, maps, and driving directions. This demonstrates the power and versatility of Google's new conversational search engine, which is able to bring together various pieces of information and present them in a meaningful and connected way. The user was impressed with the results and was able to gain valuable insights for competitive intelligence purposes. Overall, this conversation highlights the potential of conversational search engines to provide complex and interconnected information in response to natural language queries.

    • Google's integrated travel servicesGoogle's ownership of various travel services allows for a more efficient and convenient user experience, potentially reducing reliance on third-party platforms and offering real-time information through technology like air pods or Google goggles.

      Google is leveraging its own services to create an integrated and seamless user experience in travel planning. By owning various services like Google Maps, Google Flights, and Google Hotels, Google can provide users with a more efficient and convenient interface for finding information and making bookings. This could potentially reduce the reliance on third-party platforms and provide a more streamlined experience for users. The future of travel planning may involve more natural language interactions and the use of technology like air pods or Google goggles to provide real-time information and create itineraries.

    • Exploring Affordable Business Class Flights and Effective Websites with TechnologyTechnology offers affordable business class flights with Middle Eastern airlines and effective website creation tools like Squarespace

      Technology continues to evolve and improve, offering more features and benefits at affordable prices. This was evident in the discussion about finding affordable business class flights on Google Flights and the use of Squarespace for creating beautiful and effective websites. The individual was surprised to find relatively inexpensive flights with layovers in the Middle East through Royal Air, Iraq, Egypt Air, and Kuwait Airlines. Although the prices seemed too good to be true, they were indeed accurate. The individual also expressed the importance of having a visually appealing and functional website, leading to the mention of Squarespace. The platform offers beautiful templates, ease of use, and continuous addition of features, making it a great option for businesses looking to create an online presence. The discussion also touched upon the use of technology to extract information from emails, with the individual asking Google to identify venture capitalists mentioned in their Gmail account. While the technology was not yet perfect, it showed promise in its ability to provide useful information. Overall, the conversation highlights the power and potential of technology to enhance our daily lives and make complex tasks simpler and more efficient.

    • Google's email experiment for business ideasGoogle's email experiment uses past documents and external data to suggest potential business ideas, with a remote-controlled tractor for creating fire lanes being a notable example, but limitations exist in the current implementation.

      Google's latest experiment with using email data to suggest purchases and business ideas shows promising potential, despite some limitations. The speaker was intrigued by the idea of being able to access past documents and information related to potential business ideas, as well as the ability to gather data from external sources like Crunchbase and Pitchbook. He was particularly impressed by the concept of a remote-controlled, fire-resistant tractor for creating fire lanes to contain wildfires. However, he also noted that the current implementation of this feature was not perfect and that there were limitations to the data that could be accessed. Overall, the speaker saw this as an exciting development and a sign of Google's willingness to push boundaries and experiment with new technologies.

    • Investing in protective technology for electric vehicles and housesInvesting in protective technology, such as a fire blanket for electric vehicles and houses, can provide significant protection and peace of mind, even if it's an expensive one-time investment that may not be used frequently. Early content from YouTube creators can offer valuable insights into their evolution and growth.

      Technology, such as a fire blanket for electric vehicles, can offer significant protection against damage and potential loss, even if it's an expensive investment that may not be used frequently. During the discussion, the speaker was impressed by a video showcasing a fire blanket being used on an electric vehicle. This blanket prevents oxygen from reaching a fire, eliminating the need for water. The speaker then imagined applying this technology to houses, especially in fire-prone areas, and suggested that the cost would be a reasonable percentage of a house's value. Another topic touched upon was the importance of understanding a content creator's early work, as seen in the case of the YouTube channels Tomorrow Polyhopetea and Schmunk My Hopty. The speaker demonstrated how to find and summarize the earliest videos of these channels using YouTube's interface. Additionally, the group encountered an issue with an extension used to gather data for a question about Mr. Beast's top videos by publishing date. Despite the extension's limitations, the speaker remained optimistic about the potential for improvements in language models and APIs. Overall, the conversation highlighted the value of innovative technologies, the significance of exploring a creator's entire body of work, and the potential for advancements in artificial intelligence.

    • Google's search limitations for numerical dataGoogle's search capabilities for numerical data like subscriber numbers or by year are limited, while Roots focuses on building wealth through partnerships and has seen significant growth in the last two years

      There are limitations to the Google and YouTube search APIs when it comes to searching for content by year or numerical data like subscriber numbers. This is due to the lack of an API for such functionality and the inability to manipulate the results to provide the desired information. Roots, on the other hand, offers a unique real estate investing platform that focuses on building wealth for both investors and residents by creating partnerships instead of just tenants. This model has helped Roots grow its fund by over 36% in the last two years. While Google's search capabilities are adequate for some numerical queries, they could benefit from improvement, particularly in the areas of understanding and providing information by year or other specific numerical data. This limitation may be intentional, as Google's announcement of its entry into the market for flight and hotel searches could be seen as a "we're in the game" move to deter competitors. However, this presents an opportunity for Google to innovate and improve its search capabilities, potentially making it a game changer in the industry.

    • The language model market is a dynamic and competitive landscapeGoogle, Microsoft, and a few other companies lead the race in language models, but Amazon should consider a large acquisition to catch up. The market is compared to the early days of mobile technology, where the eventual winners were yet to be determined.

      The race for dominance in language models is heating up, with Google currently leading the pack. The speaker believes that Google, Microsoft, and possibly a few other companies, are the frontrunners in this space. He suggests that Amazon, currently lagging behind, should consider making a large acquisition to catch up. The speaker also praises the progress of earlier entrants in the market, despite their imperfections, and sees this as a sign of healthy competition. He compares the current situation to the early days of mobile technology, where the race had just begun and the eventual winners were yet to be determined. The speaker gives a qualified approval to recent innovations in the field, acknowledging that they may not be perfect but represent a significant step forward. In essence, the speaker sees the language model market as a dynamic and competitive landscape, where the race is far from over and the outcome is still uncertain.

    • Microsoft and YouTube are integrating AI to enhance user experience and productivityMicrosoft is developing a generalized co-pilot, YouTube is introducing AI-powered editing tools, and AI is making tasks more efficient and engaging for users.

      Technology companies are increasingly integrating AI into their products and services to enhance user experience and productivity. Microsoft is a prime example, as they're developing a generalized co-pilot for various tasks, inspired by their earlier Clippy assistant. YouTube is another player in this field, introducing AI-powered editing tools and features to shorten the gap between creation and publication. These advancements aim to make tasks more efficient and accessible, with YouTube's AI-generated title suggestions and Zoom's meeting summaries being noteworthy examples. Companies are also experimenting with AI to improve user engagement and reach, as seen with YouTube's hybrid direct air capture box episode title improvements. Overall, AI is becoming an essential component in the digital landscape, making tasks easier, more efficient, and more engaging for users.

    • Revolutionary AI tool for accurate meeting summariesThis new AI tool generates precise meeting summaries using video and audio stems, outperforming human writers. It's context-sensitive and can review specific comments in longer meetings. It has potential for e-commerce integration on platforms like Shopify and Squarespace.

      I recently came across a new AI tool that generated remarkably accurate meeting summaries, even surpassing the capabilities of human writers. This tool, likely using a model like ChatGPT, has an advantage due to its ability to access each participant's video and audio stems during meetings. However, it can get confused when context for individuals is not provided. Another impressive feature is the ability to go back and review specific comments made during longer meetings. I had the opportunity to test it for e-commerce purposes, and it demonstrated potential for seamless integration into platforms like Shopify and Squarespace. Overall, this tool has shown significant promise and is a game-changer in the AI space, especially in the context of efficient meeting summarization.

    • Innovative Charging Cube and AI's Impact on IndustriesAn innovative charging cube charges multiple devices simultaneously, saving space and eliminating clutter. AI tools like SEC Insights generate financial data, making complex tasks easier for investors and analysts.

      Technology is continually advancing to make our lives more convenient and efficient. The discussion revolved around an innovative charging cube that can charge multiple devices, including a phone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, all at once. This compact and sleek device not only saves space but also eliminates the need for multiple chargers, reducing clutter and simplifying charging experiences. Furthermore, advanced temperature control features allow for on-the-go charging without the hassle of lugging around multiple chargers. Moreover, the discussion also touched upon the potential impact of AI on various industries, specifically the elimination of jobs for writers and researchers. The use of AI for generating product descriptions or analyzing financial data was highlighted as a game-changer, making it easier for individuals to sell old electronics or gain insights into business trends. The demonstration of an AI tool called SEC Insights showed its ability to generate sub-queries and provide financial data on specific companies, making it a valuable tool for investors and analysts. The discussion ended with a comparison of different AI tools and the potential future implications for various industries. Overall, the conversation emphasized the power of technology to simplify our lives and make complex tasks more accessible to everyone.

    • Analyzing Financial Data with Various ToolsApple generated a 21B revenue in Q3 2023 with an 8% growth rate, but detailed financial information like net income, operating margin, and market share comparisons were not provided in the document.

      There are various tools available for analyzing financial data, ranging from free platforms like Yahoo Finance to more advanced and industrial-strength options like Bloomberg. The choice between these tools depends on the user's sophistication level and specific needs. For instance, Koifen offers more detailed financial information and estimates for a fee, making it a good intermediate option. During the discussion, the group analyzed a public document regarding Apple's services business, which revealed a 21 billion revenue generation in Q3 2023 with an 8% growth rate. However, the document did not provide net income, operating margin, or market share comparisons. The group also touched upon tax loss harvesting, a strategy where investors sell losing stocks to offset gains and pay less tax. They wondered if they could carry over stock losses to the next year and buy back the same stock. The answer is no, as it is considered wash trading, and there is a waiting period (such as 90 days) before buying back the same stock to avoid this practice.

    • Long-term investment in Disney stockSpeaker plans to buy Disney stock at $80 despite lower current price, confident in future growth; Emphasizes importance of staying informed and engaged in AI industry.

      Despite the current share price of Disney being lower than before, the speaker still intends to purchase the stock at $80 a share due to their belief in the company's future growth. They had previously bought Disney stock at $100 a share and are confident that it will be sold at a profit. The speaker also suggested organizing an AI meetup or conference, emphasizing the importance of staying informed and engaged in the field. Overall, the discussion highlights the importance of long-term investment strategies and the potential opportunities in the AI industry.

    A Conversation with Kenny Jahng About How Churches Can Get Started with AI

    The importance of AI, especially with the introduction of ChatGPT, has grown significantly in the past year. AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is more than just a "robot" telling you what you need to know. This episode will explore how churches can begin to leverage AI right now and how they can prepare for the future of AI.

    Kenny Jahng from Big Click Syndicate joins us to discuss how AI has already worked behind the scenes and some of the trends that he’s seeing in the space. Despite fears surrounding AI, Kenny emphasizes the need for church leaders to adapt and embrace the potential of AI. Join us as we explore why AI won't replace human touch but amplify human potential.

    RERL-1775 – Will ChatGPT Become A New "Employer" Due Diligence Tool?

    The real estate market is slowly leaking air, and it’s not just in residential. The construction of Google’s downtown San Jose mega-campus was put on hold, and it might not be completely due to workers refusing to head back to the office. Google’s campus was expected to create thousands of new jobs and provide housing for several thousand as well, but that was before ChatGPT changed what is possible in the workforce.
