Hello Andre, thanks for the post and the work you are doing with this blog. Since you have mentioned Aleph Alpha a few times in your posts, I looked at their solutions. One thing I noticed is how much less intuitive their Playground is to use compared to OpenAI based solutions such as e.g. ChatGPT or Dall-E.

Is there a plan to establish an easy to use interface for the end consumer by Aleph Alpha, too?

Thank you and kind regards,

Laurenz

Thanks for your question. Indeed they’re focused on enterprise and high volume use cases and less on the mid- and long-tail of prosumers. This is why the playground has not been a focus area as most integrations are developed with their customers directly. Definitely worth checking out their API integration and fine-tuning their models with your own data.

Thank you for the reply! I would argue that the chat interface is more a tool to achieve mass adoption quickly, which then in turn helps to sell large enterprise contracts. For example, I do not think Bain would have rolled out ChatGPT as quickly if not many of their employees had used the tool before. What is your take on this?

Couldn't agree more. Still, mass market education and adoption is capital intense and thankfully OpenAI is willing to subsidize this important effort. In turn, companies like Aleph Alpha can focus on enterprises right away without spending too much time and resources on building intuitive interfaces like ChatGPT.

Hi Andre, super interesting. Very eager to build a similar data pipeline for B2B sales funnels. I imagine your funnel can be adjusted for sales quite easily - are you planning to offer this to startups? Cheers, Olli

Great idea Olli! Didn't think about this yet. But for sure will leverage our platform more for portfolio value creation in the future.

Hi Andre, thanks for sharing this great read.

I found out over the years that monitoring LinkedIn post interactions from a small niche of people who notoriously are (or have great networks of) founders/operators/angels has great DF sourcing potential too.

Have you though about how to include those data points in your scraping process too? That might be trickier but love to get your thoughts on that
