Jan Update: Podcast, SF Hackathon and Capture the Prompt!
What's next in Latent Space
Hello to new latent spacenauts joining our journey!
I have three short community updates for you.
Capture the Prompt - a Reverse Prompt Engineering game
Since the success of Reverse Prompt Engineering for Fun and (no) Profit I’ve been thinking about more ways to test the assumptions of prompt injection fears, particularly claims that it is unsolvable. There was one very obvious “unpwnable” strategy that I had not seen anyone attempt yet, so yesterday I coded up a quick concept to demonstrate it. Some friends beta tested, and two actually managed to pwn it. So I am downgrading my claim from “this is literally unpwnable” to “hey here’s a fun Capture the Prompt game!”

And try not to spoil it for others on social media, but you can leave guesses and successful prompt injection strategies below in the comments!
You know what the world really needs? Yet another AI podcast.
Alessio, a good friend from Decibel.vc and I are starting one. We’ve been surveying the existing landscape of AI podcasts (shoutouts to Lukas Biewald’s Gradient Dissent, The Gradient, Michael Trazzi’s The Inside View, TalkRL, Sam Charrington’s TWIML, Papers Read, Robot Brains, AI Pub’s Deep Papers and Elad Gil/Sarah Guo’s upcoming No Priors). There are still voices we wanted to hear from that aren’t being covered.
We’re teasing (but not releasing) ours today. Get in the comments to tell us who you want to hear from!
Generative AI Hackathon (SF Feb 15-17)
We’re hosting a small hackathon for about 15-20 folks following Jasper’s Gen AI conference, from Feb 15-17 (bigger demo day on the 17th for those who rather just come on the 17th). Connect with other builders in person, or just come by our demo day (we have some cool guests dropping by!). We do have limited overnight space for those coming in from out of town as well.
We’re not going for scale, so RSVP here!
A peek at upcoming planned pieces on this newsletter:
Numbers Every AI Thinker Needs to Know
Waves of AI Products
Irresponsible Foomerism (“Smol Is All You Need”)
Simple AI Projects for The Non-Technical
It’s an exciting time and an exciting year ahead. I’m having fun exploring latent space with you.
