In-between memory and thought: How to wield Large Language models. Part I.
With so much attention on Large Language Models (LLMs), many organisations are wondering how to take advantage of LLMs.
This is the first in a series of three articles geared towards non-technical business leaders.
We aim to shed light on some of the inner workings of LLMs and point out a few interesting quirks along the way.

Superintelligence alignment and AI Safety
OpenAI recently unveiled their 'Introducing Superalignment' initiative 📚, with the powerful statement: “We need scientific and technical breakthroughs to steer and control AI systems much smarter than us.”
We couldn’t agree more. As our Chief Researcher, @Damian Ruck says, “No one predicted Generative AI would take off quite as fast as it has. Things that didn’t seem possible even a few months ago are very much possible now.”
We’re biased though; AI Safety and Alignment represents everything we believe and have been working on for the last few years. It may be to prevent bias, to ensure security, to maintain privacy. Or it could be a totally different and unforeseen consequence that you avoid.
How do we meet the challenge of steering AI systems? With AI.
“There’s no point if your guardrail development isn’t happening at the same speed as your AI development”.

AI Powered Cybersecurity: Leveraging Machine Learning for Proactive Threat Detection
Every day the attack surface of an organisation is changing and most likely growing.
An environment where petabytes of both traditional and AI enhanced data are transferred across private and public networks creates a daunting landscape for cybersecurity professionals. This data rich world is now even more accessible to cyber criminals as new AI-enabled strategies facilitated by open-source tooling become available to them.
How is the modern CISO, IT manager or cybersecurity professional meant to keep up? The answer, probably unsurprisingly, is that to detect, and deal with these new threats, AI is also the solution.

Autonomous Military Systems Must Operate as Commanded
To protect our way of life, the primary purpose of military innovation is to achieve and maintain operational advantage over our adversaries.
In the modern age, this practically translates to advanced operational systems and hyperintelligent software to manage these systems in an increasingly autonomous way.
But we must be able to trust these systems...

Biased Age Estimation Algorithms
Biased age estimation is a great example of algorithmic #discrimination. Such #AI algorithms are therefore unfit for use. Right?
Well, their use is threatening to happen anyway. With multiple US federal bills and the UK’s Online Safety Bill looking to legislate online age verification, improving the robustness of these systems is becoming growingly urgent.
