Been thinking about the infra needed for human-machine teaming, I think a lot of knowledge from the field of business process management can be reimagined, just with powerful natural language capabilities.

  • Natural language becomes the API interface between humans and machines.
  • No need to formally describe the workflow. Just talk to it and let the LLM create/modify/delete these.
  • These workflows are essentially Turing-complete, distributed program where the job "processors" are people and bots. For eg: BPMN already supported branching, sequential processing, parallel processing etc.
  • Open-source Zapier-equivalent systems can be a good starting point for these.

Wondering if something like this 💬 #two-minute-week@2023-05-01T19:54:12.122Z matches the last bullet

[May 1st, 2023 12:54 PM] gabi.grinberg: Something I've been wanting to play with for a long white! A naive integration of OpenAI into|Flyde :sparkles:

It generates a file that implements a Flyde "Code Part" based on a prompt. Too slow and far from perfect, but hey.. it works :smile:

For workflows, we liked to talk about "Adjustable Autonomy and Mixed-Initiative Interaction".

The neural network pioneer says dangers of chatbots were ‘quite scary’ and warns they could be exploited by ‘bad actors’

It’s not can, it’s will, and it’s not will, they are. We’ve already got professionals and students alike writing papers, doing science, and pushing their work and the language models simultaneously. It’s the fastest paced directly-driven tech growth I’ve ever experience. And the likes of Google, Apple, the rest of the normal culprits don’t like not being the gatekeepers of “top billed” software.

There was a “leak” (pronounced “pr approved for reproduction memo”) by google that touches this too:

Perspective on AI from a music producer (He reminds us of Napster and concludes that networks, like Paramount+, Apple Music, Spotify, etc. will simply side-step artists and music labels altogether)
