Why is customizable AI & AI devices the future of AI?

Updated: 6 days ago

In this article discuss the need for customisability of Al and also the need for portable Al focused devices and showcase a couple of them.

Imagine customised Generative AI models with settings & uploaded documents specifically tailored to each business or individual is the future of AI and AI devices to go with it. This is what's needed to start to make AI specifically usable to each individual and business. Imagine your personal assistant customise to your preferences, interests, and your own data.

What is needed for more customized AI models?

Firstly, this would be accomplished by providing a whole set of optionalities in settings to define the parameters such as preferences in politics, religion, and personal choices.

Then you should be able to simply upload various types of documents and images to train your AI.

Then you should also be able to add text snippets to learn from your Google keep notes or other not taking platforms. All those little snippets can add more knowledge to the model.

It should be highly secure since it will be company data.

Then being able to plug it into various reputable sources to get the facts.

I think a low-cost subscription per month to acce this kind of ability could revolutionize Ai and it's usefulness.

I'm just not that good with database stuff and not that good with programming. so it would be good to do simple file submission and have it automatically learn the data inside it and incorporated into its AI model to train and through use. it would make it better and better by staff using it every day.

And it could then be used for all sorts of things. and maybe multiple models, one for client support and one for internal support and one for IT support and another for HR support and so on and so on.

Here is an early example of this sort of customised AI.

Google NotebookLM:

Unfortunately, this tool is only available to people over 18 and only in the US. can I play with that in Australia? Please Google DeepMind, Google & Google Workspace open it up to Australia and the rest of the world.

This tour is very interesting because all you have to do is upload up to 10 documents and set some parameters and there's no programming required and you've got yourself a customised AI that has the information contained with the 10 documents that you've uploaded. Not sure about the length of these documents but I think it has no limit on its size so I could have large notebooks and upload them. And perhaps i would create multiple notebooks one for each interest of topic.

Future of AI is customisation

As a lot of technologists are saying this year will be the year for customised tailored AI through customised settings and preferences as well as documents full of data.

Because creating custom databases with snippets of data is extremely hard to create and there are off the shelf stuff, but they're not tailored to each business. So the only way to generate that custom database is through data extraction of files.

Obviously cybersecurity considerations will need to be met but the potentials are great across all levels of business and obviously job losses as a result.

New form of smartphone: AI devices

A new form factor is arising as a solution to having full access to AI and using it to good use as a personal assistant in our lives.

Early creations of this are for example Humane AI and Rabbit AI.

The Humane Ai Pin is a small, wearable AI device meant to replace smartphones. It clips onto your clothes and features:

* Privacy-focused: Doesn't record or listen when not actively engaged.

* On-demand AI: Activated by voice, touch, or gesture.

* Contextual awareness: Uses sensors to react to your surroundings.

* Powerful processing: Runs on a Snapdragon chipset.

* Rich interactions: Features a laser projection display and a special speaker.

* Subscription-based: Requires a monthly fee for software updates and services.

It's still new and has some kinks, but aims to offer a more personal and convenient way to interact with technology. Think of it as a powerful, AI-powered assistant attached to your clothes. If you'd like to have a look at the product you can go on their website:

The Rabbit R1, not Ai pin, is actually a pocket-sized AI device also aiming to replace smartphones, but with a different approach. Here's a quick rundown:

* Minimalist design: Fits in your pocket, like a smaller phone.

* Natural language interface: No menus or screens, works with conversation.

* Contextual assistance: Learns your preferences and adapts to situations.

* Multi-device control: Seamlessly operates various smart home devices.

* Open platform: Developers can create custom apps and experiences.

* One-time purchase: No subscriptions, pay upfront for the hardware.

Think of the Rabbit R1 as a conversational AI companion that lives in your pocket and helps you navigate the world hands-free. You can check it out here on their website:

So there you have it? These are the two devices I've heard and I think Apple, Google and Samsung will come out with their own devices to match or outpace or there will be purchased by those companies.

I think in the coming years these devices will become a competitor to smartphones and perhaps for some parts of the population may be 50% it will replace the smartphone all together.

But I worry a lot about how these devices will start to replace the reasoning centre of the human brain and will be reliant on these devices to make decisions and will stop thinking for ourselves. So as an IT professional for over 20 years, I highly recommend do not ever surrender your reasoning centre. Always think for yourself
