I just finished the Musk biography by Isaacson. It was a good read with original reporting that I had never read before. Musk is a complicated figure. But there aren’t enough Isaacsons to write everyone’s story. Writing a biography is an interesting task — analyze and synthesize all the facts of a life and turn them into narrative form. Making sense of the twists and turns of a life (maybe your own).
literally the plot to Transcedence (2014) with Johnny Depp except
<spoiler alert>he becomes a megaorganism with the AI and cures pollution via nanotech
This is kind of why I've leaned into hoarding my past data: I think it'll become useful one day, if nothing else as a snapshot of what I was doing during that moment in my life. I bet there are lessons to be learned and tons to extrapolate.
Imagine when it comes up with a story way different that the one you tell yourself. Or different AIs producing very different narratives?
Could this have an impact in our egos or even in our self identitification?
What about the information left out?
Have you reached out to black mirror?
Interesting, Democratize Biography!
How about "you.ai"?
Model trained entirely on your data, your contents, etc. Then others can interact with it. A way of preserving yourself for posterity. You can input more data anytime and retrain to make it more representative of you.
What are the ways today that you can ingest all the data ? You talk about journals, podcasts, blogs, voice.. how do you start organizing this in a central repo now to begin training a model on it?
