Good morning, AI enthusiasts! This week’s podcast episode is a must-listen and stands out as the best among all 24 episodes so far. Greg shares incredible insights relevant not only for entrepreneurs but for anyone.

We talked about investments, startups, and Greg’s notable success on LinkedIn, where he has built a massive following of over 190,000 people and earned 2 top voice LinkedIn awards. He shared how and why he started his LinkedIn journey, building such a massive audience.

My personal favorite is the tips he provides for aspiring entrepreneurs and investors. The insights, covering topics like understanding the market and avoiding common pitfalls, are invaluable. Whether you’re looking to create your own products, build projects, or invest your money in other companies (which is advisable if you can), this episode is a must-listen for you.

I hope you enjoy it, and I’d love to hear your feedback and thoughts on Greg’s perspective. Feel free to share your comments or message me on social media.

Enjoy the rest of the newsletter with amazing opportunities from the community and, once again, some great reads! I enjoyed Youssef Hosni’s overview of the best weekly papers in LLMs and computer vision.

P.s. Even though not discussed here, I would highly recommend anyone interested in LLMs to add HuggingFace’s new blog post, “Mixture of Experts Explained,” to your reading list to better understand how GPT-4 and all recent powerful models are trained and deployed!
