Episode 78 with Jason Haddix

Jason Haddix

In episode 78 of the We Hack Purple Podcast host Tanya Janca brings Jason Haddix on to talk about artificial intelligence, and (of course) how to hack it! Jason discussed how to use AI for both defense and offence, using plain language (conversational), rather than code, and what a red teaming exercise looks for such a system. We talked about what a large language model looks like, cleaning up data, and how easy it is to get them to do bad things. Jason invited everyone to the AI Village at Def Con this year, and so much more! There was also much love for Daniel Miessler, his articles on AI, and his newsletter Unsupervised Learning. Listen to hear the whole thing!
