Aaaaaaaaand we are back. Thanks for your patience while I tried to recharge a big.

Half of this Splendid Edition is a bit more technical than usual this week. Apologies if some of you will find it a bit much.

Even if you are not interested in the topic, I highly recommend you read it, because it will clarify certain mechanisms that we’ll encounter again in the near future when talking about GPT-4.

If, instead, you liked the content of this week, as usual, I’d appreciate you sharing this newsletter with friends and colleagues, and talking about it on social media.

Thank you.
