Step 1 Analyze text

The Tool ChatGPT Chunker  divides a large input text into smaller chunks based on the specified token amount, and prompts ChatGPT accordingly.

Create a reusabe prompt

Output: Instructions: Write a conversational and engaging article about topic. Use a personal voice, share anecdotes and experiences to make the content relatable and easy to understand. Add a sense of humor, using light-hearted language and references. Maintain a friendly and encouraging tone of voice, aiming to guide the reader towards self-improvement and personal growth. Use clear and concise language, employing analogies and metaphors to better explain concepts. Combine expository and narrative literary styles, weaving personal stories and experiences throughout the text.

Great facilitation prompt: Just take 60’’ to write down at least one takeaway from this session

Using linked data

Who can code? Who can write logic in Excel sheets?

2 requirements

  • Build linking data (with Airtable)
  • add to your identity that you can program

enables complete automations with NoCode applications.

Push it to one database and establish a single source of truth. Everything gets connected. The inner creator gets unleashed.

Why linked data for AI?

  • Learn first ChatGPT and MidJourney.
  • Integrate AI into existing workflows and transform them
  • Implement AI at scale



  • Will I use that process again? Yes .. standardize (at least document it)
    • define the data needed
  • Define what AI tools you will use


  • the output you get from Airtable or elsewhere (direction of Second Brain)

Iterate and Improve

Airtable to AI linking to e.g. create copy variations. Just via API connection between Airtable and ChatGPT. Connected with AdSale to automatically create ads.

Airtable integrates AI directly with the database (… need to learn more about Notion and AI).

a few things to master

  • Build Database Structure (Tables & Views)
    • Idea: need to get our pathways in database descriptions

Talk from Jasmine Taillon

  • Copyright Infringement
  • Trademark Infringement
  • Defamation
  • Privacy and Data Protection
  • Ethical Implications
  • How much human contribution is needed in order to own the copyright?
  • Advice: document what your human elements are

Example Zarya of the Dawn - How much human contribution is needed

  • Copyright registration was granted using Midjourney.
  • Copyright Office registered both the entire work and individual images contained.
  • Copyright Office has the authority to cancel a registration after giving 30 days to defend a registration.
  • Applicant was unable to show sufficient human authorship and the protection of the images was revoked.

AI and Privacy

Privacy issues:

  • GDPR, state private laws, industry specific laws
  • what are you inputting and what are you outputting


  • What are you inputting?
  • Is there consent or another justification?
  • Can the personal information be used in a way consistent with privacy rights?


  • Is AI being used in a way that raises privacy concerns?
  • Is it being used to make decisions that impact privacy?
  • Do people understand how the technology is used and how it might impact them?

Ethical implications

We have to account for the biases. Information might be biased by:

  • human bias
  • data bias
  • algorithm bias

Tips and Solutions

  • Consider confidentiality and privacy
  • Consider protectability of the outputs (human authorship still required)
  • Beware that output may infringe
  • Check accuracy of outputs
  • Make outputs your own
  • Always have at least one substantial human inventor
  • Realize there is no current ruling on mixed inventorship. Document the
  • human inventor side!

Presentation Iman Oubou

Nice teaser question: How are you feeling about this AI stuff

Mindset for working with AI: Be curious, be creative, ask the right questions.

Estimated AI value creation

For instance, PwC had projected that AI could contribute up to $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030, which is more than the current output of China and India combined. Of this, $6.6 trillion was expected to come from increased productivity and $9.1 trillion is likely to come from consumption-side effects.

Additionally, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, AI could potentially deliver additional global economic activity of around $13 trillion by 2030, which would be about 16 percent higher cumulative GDP compared to today.

Artificial Narrow Intelligence and General Intelligence - ANI vs AGI

  • ANI (artificial narrow intelligence) - smart speakers, chatbots, Image recognition, web search
  • AGI (artificial general intelligence) - do anything a human can do. AGI still a long way off (decades).


  • focused on a specific, singular or limited task
  • Examples Include image recognition, hyper- personalization, chatbots, predictive text
  • Trained on specific tales by data scientist
  • no self-awareness, consciousness, ability to think


  • not fully realized, with some developers questioning if it will be possible
  • machines that can handle a range of cognitive tasks with little oversight
  • The ability to learn, generalize, apply knowledge and plan for the future
  • Must consistently pass the Turing Test
  • General intelligence that possesses common sense and creativity and expresses emotions

The AI Doomer

Short Term Concerns
