The main issue with machines and technical supports is that one is hardly ever given, just demands and so naturally always be served at his defilements.
Aside of it, it destroys any health capacity of interation, leads to deny goodness and to feel more and more gratitude toward material things.
A machine isn’t able of goodness, and if really intelligent, wouldn’t need long to turn itself off.
But it’s possible much to late to hinder this way of soon large disasters on it go on. Being like to chose their slayer, much more then doing own sacrifices toward liberation. What ever fake liberality has become a popular refuge served always huge killing field.

An excellent review of the history and possibilities of AI (pdf):
“Large Language models and the reverse Turing test” by Terrence J. Sejnowski, a pioneer in the field.
He also has a recent book on the subject, “Deep Learning Revolution” (2018.)
- I am not encouraging anyone to get started on the subject. It could be a distraction from cultivating the Noble Path.
- However, I believe I may be able to use it to teach Dhamma. Thus my interest in it.

there are now technologies based on LLMs that allow you to chat with your own documents. Essentially, these are, pre-trained large language models that can be fine tuned specifically on your own content. For example, you could train your own GPT model with your posts and forum discussions to get answers from the model that are in accordance with puredhamma.net.
Here are some links to relevant technologies:
I think that’s exactly what you’re looking for. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you, Jaro!
I looked into the last one a few days ago. It involved some work (downloading various files, etc.). I was going to wait until something easier came along.
- Have you used any of those three? Would you recommend one that is easy to install?
I also use Obsidian. I think Obsidian has some new AI plugins too. I just have not had time to look into them.
I remember that you have a technical background. Please keep us informed of new developments in this area.

Yes, it’s part of my job to find out about current trends in IT and assess whether they might be interesting for my company. I see great potential in the GPTs, but unfortunately I haven’t had the chance to try them out yet. But from what I have seen, PrivateGPT seems to be a solid choice. The setup is streighforward and a conventional computer should fulfill all system and hardware requirements. So maybe I can try it out in the next few days.

If you get to do the testing, please keep us updated. Thank you!
