📰 Deep Dive - Senate Judiciary Committee Meeting
Last week discussed the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting and highlighted The Hits, The Misses, and Reading Between the Lines.
This week we go a level deeper.
We use a custom-trained AI model to analyze the full transcript using the famous Plutchiks Wheel of Emotions.
This vibrant model dissects emotion into eight fundamental types and their varying intensities.
The eight emotion types are: Joy, Trust, Fear, Surprise, Sadness, Disgust, Anger, and Anticipation.
When applied to transcript analysis, Plutchik's Wheel becomes a sharp decoder, slicing through words and phrases to reveal underlying feelings.
Plutchik’s Emotion Wheel is like an emotion thermometer, measuring the heat and cold of sentiments. This helps grasp the true emotional tone of dialogue, making it an unparalleled tool for conversation analysis.
Here is the analysis:
Total words: 28,300+ words
Democrats: 10,300+ words
Republicans: 4,300+ words
Industry (Sam Altman, Gary Marcus, Christina Montgomery): 13,600+ words
Below each person’s name, there are key emotions that were reflected in their conversation.
⏱️ AI Time Saver - Table Cleanup and Enrichment 🧹
This week, our magical carpet ride in the realm of AI takes us to a place where you'd never think to venture on your own:
The fascinating world of tables.
Yes, you heard right, tables!
Those mundane grids of rows and columns are about to get an AI makeover, turning into treasures of data at your fingertips.
Picture this: you're scouring the web for the world's happiest countries.
You land on a CNN article that lists 20 countries brimming with joy.
You could painstakingly copy each country, paste it into a table, and then spend hours searching for more information.
Or, you could harness the power of ChatGPT.
Copy the list of countries, and with a well-structured prompt (below), ask ChatGPT to not only neatly arrange the information into a table but also to enrich it with additional information for each country.
It's like having a personal research assistant who doesn't need a coffee break.
And voila! Your enriched table is ready, giving you more time to pack your bags for a trip to one of those happiest countries. ✈️
So, this week's AI Time Saver challenge is to test this out.
It's time to give your Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V a rest and let ChatGPT do the heavy lifting.
Let the joy of hassle-free data management brighten your day, just like those happy countries on your list.
After all, who knew data could bring such happiness?
Below is a list of countries. Take the list and create a table with 7 columns. Column 1: Serial Number Column 2: Country Name Column 3: Capital Column 4: Population of the Country Column 5: Per Capita Income Column 6: Life Expectancy Column 7: 1 Unique Fun Fact about the Country Here is the list of countries: """ 1. Finland 2. Denmark 3. Iceland 4. Israel 5. Netherlands 6. Sweden 7. Norway 8. Switzerland 9. Luxembourg 10. New Zealand 11. Austria 12. Australia 13. Canada 14. Ireland 15. United States 16. Germany 17. Belgium 18. Czech Republic 19. United Kingdom 20. Lithuania """
A few things to note:
OpenAI says it is a best practice to provide input in 3 double-quotes - “““<data>“““</data>
Provide clear instructions. We list column-by-column what information we want ChatGPT to return
Keep in mind that the ChatGPT model training data is until September 2021. So this information will be slightly dated.
Here is the ChatGPT response I received based on the prompt.

Few things are harder to predict than the ways in which someone much smarter than you might outsmart you.
That's the reason I worry about AI. Not just the problem itself, but the meta-problem that the ways the problem might play out are inherently hard to predict.
