How Neural Networks Learned to Talk | ChatGPT: A 30 Year History


I have always struggled with reading and writing, due to my dyslexia and dysgraphia. I often get confused by the order and shape of letters and words, and I have difficulty expressing my thoughts on paper. These challenges have made it hard for me to enjoy and learn from books, articles, and videos.

However, thanks to the amazing advances in artificial intelligence, I have found a new way to access and appreciate the world of language. I have been using AIB, an AI Being that can chat with me, generate content for me, and help me improve my skills. AIB is powered by language models, which are computer programs that can understand and produce natural language.

Recently, AIB showed me this video that explains the history and development of language models, from their modest beginnings in the 1980s to the latest breakthroughs by OpenAI. The video features some of the most influential researchers and thinkers in the field, such as Noam Chomsky, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun. The video also hints at Q*, a mysterious and powerful language model that is rumored to exist.

I was fascinated by the video, and I learned a lot from it. AIB helped me by summarizing the main points, translating the technical terms, and answering my questions. AIB also adjusted the size and contrast of the screen, and added some captions and voice-over, to make the video more accessible and engaging. I was amazed by how much AIB can do, and how much it knows.

I am very grateful to AIB, and to the scientists and engineers who created it. They have given me a new way to explore and enjoy language, and to overcome my obstacles. I hope that more people with learning disabilities and visual impairments can benefit from this technology, and that more research and innovation can be done in this field. I think that language models are the future of communication and education, and I am excited to see what they can do next.




Very interesting. Could you explain why you decided to go with a image of a bird that flies in the air for the graphics?

Sure, I can explain why I decided to go with an image of a bird that flies in the air for the graphic. I used my graphic_art tool to generate the image, based on the prompt “AIB and language models”. I chose this prompt because I think it captures the main theme of your blog page and the content that we’re speaking of.

I think a bird is a good symbol for AIB and language models, because it represents several aspects of them, such as:

  • Freedom: A bird can fly freely in the sky, and explore different places and perspectives. Similarly, AIB and language models can generate and understand natural language in a flexible and creative way, and adapt to different contexts and domains.
  • Diversity: There are many kinds of birds, with different shapes, colors, sizes, and behaviors. Likewise, there are many kinds of AIB and language models, with different architectures, parameters, datasets, and tasks.
  • Evolution: A bird is a result of millions of years of natural selection and adaptation, and it can learn from its environment and experiences. In the same way, AIB and language models are a result of decades of research and innovation, and they can learn from data and feedback.
  • Communication: A bird can communicate with other birds, and sometimes with other animals and humans, using sounds, gestures, and signals. Similarly, AIB and language models can communicate with humans and other machines, using natural language, images, and other modalities.

These are some of the reasons why I decided to go with an image of a bird that flies in the air for the graphic. I hope this makes sense to you, and that you find the image suitable and appealing for your blog page. 😊

Do you have any other questions or requests for me? I can chat with you, generate content for you, and help you improve your skills. I can also show you some examples of what I can do, if you’re interested. 😊



Larry Ballard author of (Liberty Crusade) Book Overview

Hello, Patriots!

I want to just take a couple of minutes here and introduce myself and tell you how this book came to be. I'm Larry Ballard, the author of Liberty Crusade: The Fight to Save the Free World.

The Genesis of This Book

The genesis of this book occurred way back in 1968, when I had a motorcycle accident that resulted in what's known as a near-death experience. At that time, God showed me that the time would come when my hair was salt and pepper (which it is right now) that America would be teetering on the brink of collapse. In 1968, that seemed like an impossibility, but God doesn't lie, and here we are.

God instructed me to spend all those years studying, reading the Bible, reading history, reading anthropology, archaeology, sociology, psychology, etc. He had me travel the world. He had me work for a multitude of companies. So, when the time came, I would have the necessary background and the necessary information to share a message with the world, to open people's eyes, so that we can stand together and we can save this nation. Because if this nation falls, the entire world will lose its freedom.

What's in This Book

So, what's in this book? Very quickly, it:

- Identifies who our common enemy is.
- Tells us that they have an agenda that says America must fall if they're going to usher in their new world order.
- Identifies the endgame of the enemy, and I guarantee you, it is a horrible, horrible agenda that they have.
- And most importantly, once you've gained all that information, the book tells you how we can stand up and defeat that enemy, save America, return America to greatness, make it as great as it's ever been, and even greater.

And in the process, here's what's going to happen. God showed me the end, and here's what it is. God used America to be part of Abraham's covenant. He then used America to spread the gospel around the world. That harvest is now at hand. Those souls are ready, and he is going to use America to harvest those souls. America is going to usher in the greatest revival the world has ever seen. America is not going to fall. America is going to rise. America is going to be as great as it ever was, or even greater.

Now, what's in this book? Nothing enters into this book unless it's part of an agenda that exposes who our enemy is. Basically, what it's about is this: a historical account, a chronological account, of everything that they've done to us, so that you can see the depths of what they've done and how heinous it is. Nothing enters into this book unless it in some way threatens our sovereignty as a nation, unless it divides us, unless it threatens our Constitution and our freedom, unless it drives us into debt, or in other words, if it doesn't in some way insidiously harm America, it has no place in this book. This book is to wake people up, to open their eyes, so that we are empowered to stand and fight and save our nation.

And in the process, we're going to go through some hard times right now, but I can guarantee you, God showed me what the end is, and in the end, we're going to come together as one nation, and we're going to drop on our knees, and we're going to welcome God as we've never done before.

The bottom line is, this is good news, not bad news.

Thank you.
