In Focus

The future of AI user interfaces

  • This intriguing Fast Company article discusses different foundersโ€™ perspectives on the future of AI design and how we are likely to interact with this technology in the future.
  • Thereโ€™s a growing divide on whether chatbots in their current, text-based, format are an outdated interface to use AI or whether it needs a radical upgrade (think mobile phones before the iPhone), in order to gain mass adoption.
  • While most agree that a user-friendly design that enhance efficiency in everyday life for most people is crucial for AI to gain mass adoption, thereโ€™s little consensus of what this would actually look like.
  • I believe our imagination for interfaces remains very limited at this point by the current applications we have seen. Hereโ€™s a quote from the article which struck with me:
โ€œMetaphors that you take for granted, like touch, swiping, pinchโ€”whateverโ€”take on new meanings in generative AI,โ€ says Yuan. โ€œZooming means you want more or less detail on something, right? So how does that get applied to a chunk of text?โ€

- Jason Yuan in an interview with Fast Company (Aug 16 2023)

Darioโ€™s Picksโ€ˆ

  • OpenAI acquires Global Illumination in its first public acquisition โ€“ a design studio with team members that built early products at Instagram and Facebook. This definitely sounds like a step in the right direction; my impression from following the community around OpenAI for the last few months is that they have great technology and a large user base, but a lot of room for improvement in terms of interfaces and design โ€“ both on the dev and consumer side.
  • Using GPT-4 for content moderation. I was excited to see this blog post from OpenAI describe a specific process on how GPT-4 can be used for content moderation at scale. This is a costly expense for so many enterprises and typically requires a lot of man-hours, so this is a potential use case which could take chatbots one step closer to a more profitable/sustainable business model. This is particularly relevant as a recent report found that OpenAI could be headed for bankruptcy as early as 2024 unless they find a way to balance the extreme costs associated with operating ChatGPT.
  • Scientists see strong potential in ChatGPT as research tool, albeit not without challenges. The ScholarAI plugin was recently mentioned in a peer-reviewed article by researchers from Oxford University and The Imperial College of London, exploring how ChatGPT is catalyzing the evolution of cardiothoracic surgery research.

ChatGPT pluginsโ€ˆ

  • Thereโ€™s now 920 ChatGPT plugins, of which 26 were launched in the past 7 days.
  • Notable launches:
  • Consensus Search - Provides answers and insights directly from over 200M scientific papers, accessible by asking a research question.
  • Check Point Security - Checks security reputation for IPs, URLs, File hashes, and obtains their current risk and classification.

  • A recent trend in the ChatGPT plugin store reveals an unusual surge in plugins named with the letter "A", a symptom of an unregulated naming culture. Developers are exploiting alphabetical sorting to gain visibility, underscoring the need for OpenAI to implement clear naming rules and better organization. Here's a graph Iย made (with Code Interpreter of course) to illustrate the problem:

โ€

Developers are increasingly starting their plugin names with โ€œAโ€ to appear first in the list. IMO, we need better systems in place by OpenAI for the plugin store asap.
