16:08:15 From Frode Hegland : 4th of October in London
16:09:50 From Mark Anderson : I’m free for the 4th. I’ve put it in the diary to block it out.
16:12:31 From Frode Hegland : Please reload, Peter changes made
16:16:20 From Peter Wasilko : Much clearer!

16:44:12 From Mark Anderson : Sadly slides to the dem are lost, but talking of before things were set, here’s Ted Nelson in 1966 (c. years before the NLS demo) talking of what might be. Audio’s not great, but: “Hard and Fast Thoughts for a Softcopy World”
16:45:19 From Brandel Zachernuk :
16:45:56 From Frode Hegland : What is that music Brandel?!

16:56:54 From Fabien Benetou : Meta Quest 2
16:59:15 From Fabien Benetou : plus desktop
16:59:44 From Daveed : Fabien, I need a desktop?
17:00:09 From Daveed : Desktop computer – laptop won’t work?
17:00:14 From Fabien Benetou : sorry I meant for the Varjo, for the Quest 2 it’s standalone, just need a connection
17:00:29 From Daveed : OK great!
17:05:58 From Frode Hegland : Quest 2 or Pro without desktop also ok. I’m doing that
17:07:04 From Frode Hegland : 1 min…
17:20:58 From Frode Hegland : There are several ways a word processor can be improved to better meet the needs of university students. Here are some possible suggestions:

1 Integration with citation management tools: Many university students need to cite sources in their papers, and having a built-in citation management tool that can generate citations and manage bibliographies would be very useful. Some word processors, such as Microsoft Word and Google Docs, already have some citation management features, but more advanced integration with tools like Zotero or Mendeley could be helpful. (Reader sidesteps this with Visual-Meta from Author or by adding Visual-Meta based on a DOI found on the first page of a PDF)

2 Collaboration features: Many university students work on group projects and need to collaborate with other students. Having built-in collaboration features that allow multiple users to work on the same document simultaneously, with the ability to track changes and leave comments, would be a valuable addition. (This is not covered by Author or Reader)

3 Academic templates: Many students need to format their papers according to specific academic styles, such as APA or MLA. Providing built-in templates that follow these styles could save students time and help ensure that their papers are properly formatted. (Author can export to many academic styles automatically)

4 Advanced grammar and spell-checking: Many word processors already have basic grammar and spell-checking features, but more advanced tools that can detect more subtle errors or suggest more sophisticated phrasing could be helpful for university-level writing. (Beyond my capability now)

5 Integration with academic databases: Some word processors already have built-in research tools that allow users to search for information online and insert it into their documents. However, deeper integration with academic databases like JSTOR or Project MUSE could make it easier for students to find relevant sources for their papers. (Liquid provides this)

6 Accessibility features: University students with disabilities may require specific accessibility features, such as screen readers or text-to-speech functionality. Including these features within the word processor itself could help make academic work more accessible to all students. (Reader features text to speech on selecting text and ’s’. Author with menu command)

Overall, a word processor that includes these features could help university students to write more effectively and efficiently, and better meet the specific needs of academic writing.
17:26:10 From Peter Wasilko : Where did you download the 13b model from?
17:27:31 From Fabien Benetou :
17:34:09 From Fabien Benetou : that’s the setup and links to models
17:34:43 From Fabien Benetou : answer from ggml-alpaca-13b-q4

what is the difference between AI and human level AI and AGI ?
The AI that we have today are not at a Human Level, they lack some of our most important traits like empathy. They also don’t understand abstract concepts or emotions very well yet but there is still hope for the future!
17:40:13 From Peter Wasilko : 😀
17:40:43 From Frode Hegland : Is the AI label that important though?
17:51:16 From Daveed :
18:07:19 From Mark Anderson : OK, sorry, I’ve got to drop off to provide some household text support
18:08:42 From Mark Anderson : ‘text support’ ← Fruedian slip.
18:12:05 From Peter Wasilko : Do you have the url for that clip?
18:12:20 From Frode Hegland : Yes:
18:13:07 From Fabien Benetou : 2 days, no difference for me
18:13:36 From Fabien Benetou To Frode Hegland(privately) : did you mention the talk?
18:13:57 From Fabien Benetou To Frode Hegland(privately) : from Andrea Kantrowitz
18:14:31 From Frode Hegland To Fabien Benetou(privately) : I did, and all are happy
18:16:10 From Fabien Benetou To Frode Hegland(privately) : Reacted to “I did, and all are…” with 👏
