I'm going to use a number of really dumb analogies to try to explain how these large language models like ChatGPT work.
First, you have the amount of training they have done combined with the number of things they can look at at once. ChatGPT 4 is much better than ChatGPT 3 in that regard. Think of this as the AI's "hard drive".
Second, and often unappreciated, is the number of tokens that the model can handle. Think of this as RAM. Tokens represents how much the AI can "remember" about what you re talking about. ChatGPT 3 could do 4K. ChatGPT 4 defaults to 8K and there's a 32K version on the horizon. When it runs out of tokens, it starts to get wonky.
The user asks a question of ChatGPT and gets an answer. The user can then ask a follow-up question.
AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) has many definitions but one of the key components is to get the AI to handle its own inner monologue (answer it's own questions and pose new ones that it will then answer) to work out a larger problem.
So what if you could get ChatGPT to answer it's own questions and then have those answers cause ChatGPT to ask new questions based on those answers?
That is the super simple explanation of what BabyAGI does. BabyAGI takes advantage of some new technologies including Vector databases like Pinecone which effectively gives the AI a longer term memory. You can find the Github distribution here. Vector databaes don't fully solve the token limitation but they help.
Once you have it set up, you can ask it to solve a big problem.
For my test, I asked it how I could make my Russian Tortoises have a better life. An hour later, the world was made of paperclips but boy did I get my answer and here it is:
(note: The AI generated ALL of this)

Exercise and Enrichment Program for Russian Tortoises
Objective: To design a variety of activities and enrichment ideas that promote physical and mental stimulation for Russian tortoises, improving their overall well-being.
- Provide multiple levels or platforms with ramps or rocks for the tortoises to climb and explore.
- Ensure any climbing structures are stable and secure to prevent injuries.
- Create designated digging areas using a mix of coconut coir, topsoil, and sand, allowing the tortoises to dig and burrow as they would in their natural habitat.
- Rotate the digging areas to keep the environment interesting and engaging.
- Set up a maze with cardboard, rocks, or bricks that the tortoise can navigate, encouraging mental stimulation and exploration.
- Rearrange the maze weekly or biweekly to maintain interest.
- Scatter food items throughout the enclosure to encourage natural foraging behavior.
- Provide edible plants, such as dandelions, clover, or plantain, in the enclosure for the tortoise to graze on and explore.
- Hang leafy greens from a string or clip, encouraging the tortoise to stretch and reach for their food.
- Introduce a variety of textures, such as soft moss, smooth rocks, and rough bark, for the tortoise to explore and experience different sensations.
- Use a variety of substrates, such as sand, soil, or gravel, to provide varied terrain for the tortoise to traverse.
- Hide treats, such as cut-up vegetables or fruit, in small containers or under rocks for the tortoise to find, promoting problem-solving skills and mental stimulation.
- If possible, house multiple compatible Russian tortoises together, allowing for social interaction and activity.
- Monitor interactions closely to ensure the tortoises are getting along and to prevent any aggressive behavior.
- Weather permitting, provide supervised outdoor time in a secure and enclosed area with natural sunlight, allowing the tortoise to explore and bask in the sun.
- Introduce safe and tortoise-appropriate toys or objects, such as balls, mirrors, or tunnels, for the tortoise to investigate and interact with.
- Rotate toys and objects periodically to maintain interest and prevent boredom.
Regularly monitor the Russian tortoises during enrichment activities to ensure they are engaging with their environment and to assess the effectiveness of the activities. Adjust the exercise and enrichment program as needed to continue promoting physical and mental well-being for the Russian tortoises.
Note: Adjust the cleaning frequency as needed based on the number of tortoises and their specific requirements. Regularly monitor the tortoises' health and well-being, and consult a veterinarian if any health issues arise.
Russian tortoises thrive in a temperature gradient that replicates their natural habitat. Provide a basking area with a temperature between 90-100°F (32-38°C) and a cooler area with a temperature between 70-75°F (21-24°C). This temperature gradient allows the tortoise to thermoregulate by moving between the warm and cool areas as needed. Use a high-quality digital thermometer to accurately monitor and maintain these temperatures.
Russian tortoises require proper lighting to support their overall health and well-being. They need two types of light: UVA and UVB.
Whenever possible, provide your Russian tortoise with access to natural sunlight. Sunlight is the best source of UVA and UVB light and is highly beneficial for their health. Ensure that your tortoise has access to a shaded area to prevent overheating and provide fresh water during outdoor exposure. Monitor the temperature and never leave your tortoise unattended in direct sunlight.
By maintaining these ideal lighting and temperature conditions, you will significantly improve the life quality of your Russian tortoises, promoting their health, happiness, and longevity.
A comprehensive diet plan for Russian tortoises should include a variety of leafy greens, vegetables, and occasional fruits. This plan ensures proper calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D3 intake, promoting overall health and well-being.
Creating a comfortable, safe, and stimulating indoor enclosure for your Russian tortoise is essential for its health and well-being. This guide will provide you with the recommended dimensions, substrate, and accessories to set up the perfect home for your Russian tortoise.
The size of the enclosure plays a significant role in the overall health and happiness of your tortoise. A larger enclosure allows for more freedom of movement and opportunities for exploration. For a single adult Russian tortoise, a minimum enclosure size of 4 feet by 2 feet (1.2 meters by 0.6 meters) is recommended, with a height of at least 1 foot (0.3 meters). If you have multiple tortoises or plan to add more in the future, increase the enclosure size by 2 square feet (0.19 square meters) per additional tortoise.
The substrate is the material that lines the bottom of the enclosure. It's essential to choose a substrate that is comfortable for your tortoise to move on and helps maintain the appropriate humidity levels. A combination of coco coir and cypress mulch works well for Russian tortoises. This mixture provides the right balance of moisture retention and drainage, preventing the growth of mold and bacteria. Make sure the substrate is at least 2 inches (5 cm) deep to allow your tortoise to dig and burrow as they would in the wild.
Install a UVB light to mimic the sun's natural rays, which are crucial for your tortoise's health, particularly for calcium absorption and vitamin D3 synthesis. Ensure that the UVB light is within 12 inches (30 cm) of your tortoise's basking area. Maintain a temperature gradient in the enclosure, with a basking area temperature of 95°F (35°C) to 100°F (38°C) and a cooler area of 70°F (21°C) to 75°F (24°C). Use a thermometer to monitor the temperatures regularly.
By following this guide, you can create a comfortable and stimulating environment for your Russian tortoise. With proper care and attention to their enclosure, you'll significantly improve their quality of life, ensuring they remain healthy and happy.
Now, if you've ever used ChatGPT, you know it can't generate this kind of output. This is what BabyAGI does. And remember: This is just the beginning. Soon, the APIs will have internet access, plugins and be able to do vastly more than this. This is why they talk about safety so much. Imagine what the malicious will do.
We are entering an amazing and frightening future. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go buy some kale.
Damn!! That's thorough.
I think I'd just have a cat...
Thank you Brad for this! It's a great example of what AGI is all about; I'll share it with my friends and family so they can better grasp where we are headed and why it is so exiting and frightening at the same time.
Just to update this thread.
I think I just did, trying to read all of that!!
