Sherlock Holmes of Generative AI

Chain of thought

Sherlock Holmes meets a stranger. Within moments, he begins his deductions, speaking with confidence and precision. “You’re a surgeon,” he declares, noting the gentleman’s precise yet calloused hands, a tell-tale sign of frequent surgeries. He observes a faint stain of iodine on the man’s shirt cuff, common in medical settings, and spots a ticket stub for a medical lecture poking out of his pocket. Holmes continues, “Recently returned from abroad.” The sun tan, uneven, indicates the man had been to a sunny region and wore a hat most of the time, suggesting not a holiday but possibly working under the sun. The type of hat? A pith helmet, typical of those worn in tropical regions by Europeans at the time. Just as Sherlock Holmes unravels the intricate details of a stranger’s life with his sharp observations and deductions, Generative AI, through its advanced algorithms, embarks on a similar journey of piecing together information to generate insightful responses. This process, often referred to as the “Chain of Thought,” mirrors Holmes’ methodical approach. In the world of AI, this involves the model sifting through vast amounts of data, identifying relevant patterns, and logically connecting them to address complex queries. When Holmes observes the surgeon’s calloused hands or the uneven suntan, he’s not just seeing isolated facts; he’s linking them to a broader narrative. Similarly, when tasked with a question, an LLM (Large Language Models) doesn’t merely spit out pre-programmed responses. Instead, it navigates through a multitude of data points, much like stepping stones, to reach a conclusion. Each step in this process is akin to Holmes deducing the surgeon’s profession or his recent journey abroad – a calculated, sequential progression towards understanding. Thus, the LLM’s ‘thinking’ – its ability to process and connect information in a coherent, step-by-step manner – is not unlike the legendary detective’s famed deductive reasoning, offering a glimpse into how artificial intelligence can mimic sophisticated human thought processes. The Chain of Thought capability in AI opens a treasure trove of opportunities for businesses and individuals seeking innovation and efficiency. For businesses, this feature can be a game-changer in areas like customer service, where AI can not only respond to queries but also anticipate and address underlying concerns, leading to a more intuitive and satisfying customer experience. In decision-making, executives can use AI to simulate various scenarios and outcomes, providing a detailed analysis of each step in the decision chain, thereby enhancing strategic planning with data-driven insights. For creatives, this aspect of AI can inspire new directions in projects, offering a fresh perspective by logically connecting disparate ideas. On an individual level, AI’s Chain of Thought can aid in personal development and learning, tailoring educational content based on the individual’s learning style and progression. It can also assist in daily tasks, like budgeting or scheduling, by understanding patterns in behavior and preferences, thus offering optimized, personalized solutions. By harnessing this sophisticated aspect of AI, both businesses and individuals can not only streamline operations but also foster a culture of innovation, making strides towards a more efficient, data-informed future. Generative AI, empowered by its chain of reasoning, is making significant strides in solving complex problems across diverse sectors. In healthcare, AI models are revolutionizing diagnostic processes. For instance, AI systems can analyze medical images, using a series of logical steps to identify patterns indicative of diseases like cancer, often with greater accuracy and speed than human specialists [1]. This method of reasoning not only improves diagnosis but also helps in personalizing treatment plans based on a patient’s unique medical history. In finance, AI is used for risk assessment and fraud detection. By logically analyzing spending patterns and account behavior, AI can flag anomalies that might indicate fraudulent activities, thereby enhancing security and efficiency in financial transactions. In the creative industries, AI’s chain of reasoning is being harnessed for tasks like scriptwriting and music composition. By understanding and connecting various elements of storytelling or music theory, AI can assist artists in generating novel and intricate works, opening new avenues for creativity. These examples underscore how AI’s advanced reasoning capabilities are not just automating tasks but are also providing deeper insights and innovations, thereby transforming the landscape of these fields. I invite you to embark on a detective journey akin to Sherlock Holmes’ adventures by engaging with a LLM like ChatGPT. Request it to reveal its ‘Chain of Thought’ while responding to your queries or crafting an email. This experience will allow you to observe the intricacies of how Generative AI models ‘think’ and piece together information, much like Holmes unravels a mystery. If this glimpse into the AI’s deductive prowess intrigues you, do share your experience with a friend. For any inquiries or discussions about the fascinating world of Generative AI and its ‘Sherlockian’ reasoning abilities, feel free to reach out. I am always keen to investigate further into these modern-day mysteries with curious minds.

Smart Travel using AI and ChatGPT – OTOAI Convention 2023 , Kenya

Sumit receiving OTOAI momento from Himanshu Pati, Director of Kesari Travels

As a presenter invited to The Outbound Tour Operators Association of India (OTOAI) – 2023 Convention in Kenya I tried to shed light on the transformative power of data and the pivotal role of AI in the tourism industry. Showcasing travel inspiration demo from mPrompto , I emphasized on the significance of AI, particularly ChatGPT, in revolutionizing the travel planning process. You may find the presentation interesting as it delves into the world of AI, explaining the concepts of AI, ML, and Deep Learning, and highlights the capabilities of ChatGPT. It also addresses the need for controlling generative AI and the myths and realities associated with it. The presentation post further discusses the technique of Chain of Thought, which enables AI language models to emulate human-like thinking in problem-solving scenarios. I tried to explain facets of ChatGPT, such as embedding, prompt engineering, RAG, RLHF and fine-tuning, showcasing how these techniques enhance the model’s performance in understanding and generating travel-related content. The convention’s focus on leveraging AI and ChatGPT underscores their potential in shaping the future of smart tourism.. You can download the document from here Happy reading !!
