Build your own AI

You and the company you work for need to be actively developing small AI apps. It can be as trivial as following a tutorial, or you could be hyper-automating your workflow through a custom app. Regardless, you absolutely need to play with these tools to understand what you can and can’t do. Learning how to interact with this new technology is an evolving and valuable skill.

Technology literacy just got another level: AI literate. The players to know: OpenAI and Pinecone. This tutorial, with its accompanying hosted workspace, makes it a breeze. You’ll learn how to store a list of animals in JSON format in a vector database and prompt against those embeddings.

Give it a try! It touches on what you will encounter in the future. A specialized dataset (usually your data), vector database for long-term memories, and OpenAI.

Personal AI is coming; you’ll have to build it yourself to get ahead of the curve.
