Just a quick reminder - our fortnightly online session comes around again on Wednesday. It would be good to see you there!
It’s that time again - join us this Wednesday on zoom for a catchup and a chat and possibly even a spotlight session.
Quick reminder - Techshed will be meeting on Zoom tomorrow at 7.
The regular fortnightly video call comes around this week - an hour with your Tech Shed buddies! Do join us, on Wednesday at 7.
Oops, a bit late to announce this, but tonight is the regular fortnightly video meetup.
And probably the last one before the year-end break. Have a good one everyone!
Tomorrow night, the first virtual TechShed meetup of 2023!
(This is one of those which clashes with Film Club, so Al and I will be absent this time.)
Bump! Meet-up online tomorrow night!
It’s that time again - meet-up online tomorrow night!
Oh, it’s tonight - the fortnightly video call!
It’s that time again - tomorrow - the fortnightly video call. See you there!
Oops, change of plan - tonight’s call is cancelled - lack of quorum. Until next time!
Once again, the fortnight has rolled around. The regular video call is tomorrow - see you there!
For interest, here are the barely-annotated links and sparse notes from tonight’s call:
Discussion space [useful links and notes on things mentioned]
Hypercard - early and easy visual programming and hypertext authoring
Place cells in the hippocampus for navigation and orientation
LLM specialised for code
Life 3.0 - Max Tegmark
Graphcore’s performance on BERT - article from last year
Forgot to mention some of the security/reliability stuff:
Getting models to reveal parts of previous context (e.g. priming/shaping prompts to put a model in a ‘mode’ or disallow certain acations)
- youtube security researcher/educator: Accidental LLM Backdoor - Prompt Tricks - YouTube
- mini games to explore tricking an LLM into revealing its context (the trick in the LiveOverflow vid above is quite interesting)
game to get an LLM to say a word, without you using that word (not really te same thing, but interesting way of exploring how the model works with very short prompts)
