How to Tame Your AI

How to Tame Your AI
Applies to HyperMink System-1

In the ever-expanding landscape of artificial intelligence, having access to local AI brings both empowerment and responsibility. Unlike centralised services, where questions are interpreted and responses are generated behind the scenes, working with local AI offers unparalleled control over how your AI behaves and responds.

Take, for instance, the ubiquitous ChatGPT. While posing queries to this service, your questions are embedded within a vast template that guides the server-side GPT models in formulating responses. However, with local AI systems like HyperMink System-1, you engage directly with large language models, dictating precisely how your inputs are interpreted and acted upon.

With System-1, our goal is to help you understand the basics without the use of complex language and systems. We've streamlined the process of taming HyperMink, making it straightforward and, at times, optional.

Here's how it works;

1. Selecting a Language Model

System-1 comes bundled with a range of high-quality Large Language Models (LLMs), with the option to fetch new models seamlessly from the System-1 Dashboard. Each model boasts unique strengths and weaknesses, allowing users to experiment and find the best fit for their needs and computing resources. Simply select a model and start.

2. Adapting Templates

To impart basic instructions or personality traits to your AI, you can customise a simple template by sending a message '/template' (or '/t') to HyperMink. This triggers an in-chat form, enabling users to tailor the AI's responses according to their preferences.

3. Modifying Core Behaviours

Beyond template customisation, users can fine-tune their AI's behaviour by adjusting its creativity level and text decoding settings, thus exerting control over its perplexity.

At any time, you can send a '/help' message to learn about all possibilities.

With these tools at your disposal, you assume the role of your AI's creator, sculpting its personality to suit your unique needs and preferences.

By equipping individuals with the fundamental knowledge of AI mechanics, we think we can enable them to seize control of their digital destinies.

We truly believe that AI is a tool for innovation not a platform of fear-mongering. This world will be a better place if we can think for ourselves. System-1 is a small step towards a much larger goal.

Together, let's continue to explore, learn, and shape a world where AI serves as a catalyst for progress and innovation, guided by our curiosity and creativity.
