Over the years, we got inundated with different content formats: Plain Text, Rich Text, HTML, Markdown, Docx, Gdoc, Block text, proprietary editors, and closed social media messengers. Then of course importing and exporting from these tools have their pros and cons. Fortunately, protocols and transparency in relation to the API have been refined, but they take time, testing, perfection, and tend to cost $.
By using our stack transformers, we were able to convert any data format to any other shape — such as unstructured data into a standard format — namely, the Memory Stack, which is another data structure that is slated to become open source. The key is that each unique model can be automated due to this standard stack that everyone uses with their own data.
With that little background, we chose the most efficient way to save data to Stack by using system functions and the well-known “copy to clipboard” technique. Personal AI offers a function that simply saves any data in your clipboard into your memory stack in real-time.
It’s a powerful tool, but it’s also a risky one because if you don’t use it properly, unwanted data will be added to your stack, which may serve the purpose of your AI at times. For example, since everything is time bound, I’m OK with stacking everything I copy because it’s vital enough for me to recall.
Open the desktop app by using the following link in your profile. Note that the Sync clipboard capability only works on the desktop app.
You’ll know your clipboard is connected when the copy button on your message bar is purple.
For this exercise, I will push all the HTML documentation content that we’ve written on personal AI which is hosted on Readme. I can choose to use the URL, but some content is also behind an authentication that we aren’t yet able to push through with the current level of the API integration we have.
Sync clipboard supports: Stacking URLs, content from any application, and maintains the source of the data such as browser, terminal, word document, etc.
How to stack HTML content:
1. Go to the desired HTML page.
2. I use chrome reader mode to remove unwanted columns/ads, etc.
3. Select the content, and hit copy (or Ctrl/Cmd + C).
The content will automatically be saved to your Stack, you won’t have to worry about the formatting.
1. Open the word document
2. Select text (we suggest not copying more than 20k words or 40 pages at a time).
3. Hit copy, give it a few seconds if copying larger text before moving on to the next one unless you have a high-memory machine.
If you have lots of URLs to upload, say Youtube URLs or Medium URLs, simply start copying the URLs and they will be auto-stacked.
Me> List 2 key differences between Open AI and Personal AI
1. Open AI models are based on a collective internet of data, while personal AI models are based on individual data sets.
2. Open AI models are designed for general use cases, while personal AI models are designed for specific individuals.
