The latest proceedings in Artificial Intelligence initiated heated discussions about the future of AI. It is a mixture of excitement, fear, hope, and everything in between. The European Commission has proposed a new legal framework for AI, which may shortly become the law. Some big names (including Elon Musk) urged to pause the development of big models - the open letter was signed over 30,000 times as of August 28, 2023 [^1]. At the same time, the adoption of the technology is growing rapidly and doubts are piling up. In this post, I'm summarizing my thoughts on how to approach the challenges and operate safely.

Prosecuted AI - absurd today, but who knows what the future holds.

Advancements in AI have long captivated and unsettled humanity. Recently, with user-friendly interfaces like website chats and prompt-supported Discord channels, this technology has made its way into our homes.

Initially met with widespread enthusiasm and curiosity, as evidenced by countless early adopters sharing their experiences, the ecstasy surrounding AI has begun to wane. People are growing weary of subpar content on demand and are increasingly focusing on identifying risks and limitations. Sadly, many have abandoned its potential without fully exploring its capabilities.

In this article, I will share my experiences and my indispensable toolbox. I hope it will help you to start, re-start, or continue your journey with generative AI.

However, there comes a time when focus becomes more important than versatility. This post explores when to prioritize focus and avoid suboptimal work assignments.

Striking the balance - possible, needed, or just a myth?

It's been three weeks since co.brick released the report: "Preliminary diagnosis of the Silesian startup system" (can be downloaded here). The report was discussed with representatives of the ecosystem, mostly representing technology clusters and local government. Therefore it was discussed mostly from that angle, but how about the local founders? I think that their perspective was missing and in this post, I will try to highlight some of the challenges they are facing.
