I would love to have your opinion about AI startups, specificcaly those riding on the coattails of big-name LLMs like GPT-4, Claude, Llama, Bard .. It's like every other day we see a new startup popping up, aiming to revolutionize everything from legal services, marketing to customer support, chatbots etc. But here's the thing that's been bugging me: how sustainable is this model, really?
When Sam Altman dropped the news about the GPT Store it t felt like a game-changer, and honestly, it kind of spooked me. I can't help but wonder if a bunch of these AI ventures are skating on thin ice. If their whole gig is just tweaking OpenAI models with some fancy prompts, what happens when the big players decide to switch up the game? What value are their bringing ?
I'm super pumped about where AI tech is heading – the possibilities seem endless. But when it comes to these AI startups, I'm not quite on the hype train. It feels like they might be missing a trick or two. Just churning out prompts and feeding data into a pre-built AI – isn't that more of a cool feature than a full-blown business?
It reminds me a lot of what goes down on Amazon. You know, how they jump on the bandwagon of trending products, leaving the smaller sellers in the dust? Kinda feels like the same vibe here.
So, here's what I'm noodling on: Is there a way these AI companies survive long term ? Is this just a big bubble poised to pop ? I'd love to get your take on this!
