OTC CatchUp #124

Date: 25-03-2023

Duration: 03 hrs 10 mins

Topics Discussed

  • We conducted our third installment of OTC talks - OTC Talks #3 - Routing Using IP and MAC Addresses - with Harsh Kapadia as our speaker.

  • Rishit Dagli, Pranav Dani and Harsh Kapadia talked about ChatGPT, GPT-4 and the future of AI.

  • We discussed how tools like ChatGPT and BARD might have the potential to eliminate the need for people to study subjects or topics in depth.

    • Rishit Dagli discussed one of his professor’s perspectives who has worked on GPT and suggested that if something is answerable by ChatGPT or any other AI models, then it’s not a skill worth developing or spending a lot of time on.

    • Harsh Kapadia and Pranav Dani talked about how people might lose on the thinking part of the learning process which one goes through when they write, question and think about the topics objectively.

      • To refine something and add subtle nuances, one needs to think and write slowly for the realizations to hit since eureka moments are rare.

    • Kartik Soneji compared AI and calculators in terms of how either took over jobs.

      • Since calculators executed instructions on predefined rules, the chances of failure were negligible. This led to people losing their jobs as human calculators overnight.

      • Outcomes of tasks handed to AI in current scenarios are subjective since the right answer is not clear.

  • Kartik Soneji discussed why laws aren’t written in first-order logic, since people can have multiple interpretations of what the current laws mean, hence having a single interpretation of the law will lead to less confusion.

  • We talked about quantum computers and how they might pose a threat to current forms of encryption systems since they can break the ciphers in a very short time.
