  • hpr3941 (2023-09-11) "Interview with Yosef Kerzner" by operat0r.
    Summary: "Interview with Yosef Kerzner"
    • Comment 2: dnt on 2023-10-02: "Great interview!"

      Thank you for this, it was a great listen. I used to brew kefir and would love to start doing it again. At one of my former jobs there were a few people who made kefir so we could get each other fresh grains all the time, but without a local group it can be hard.

  • hpr3953 (2023-09-27) "Large language models and AI don't have any common sense" by hobs.
    Summary: "Learn how to load and run GPT-2 or Llama2 to test it with common sense questions."
    • Comment 1: Mr Young on 2023-10-01: "LLMs are great if you use them right"

      For a lay-person interacting with Bard, ChatGPT, etc. I recommend the following sites for understanding how to ask LLMs good prompts:
