Dear Reader,

Welcome to Between Calls, your weekly dose of hand-picked stories from the worlds of digital marketing, wellness and science. Blending commerce, consciousness and curiosity Between Calls brings you insights to make you think and think again.
In this week’s edition, we’re cracking open the world of large language models with a look at multi-token prediction. If you’ve ever wondered how AI seems to read your mind, please know that it’s about to get even smarter! Then, we’ll dive into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Think of it as a mental tune-up, helping you turn those pesky negative thoughts into positive vibes. Last up is a cosmic adventure which reveals how new X-ray discoveries are showing that our universe is as clumpy as scientists predicted. Happy Reading !

Kabir says : An LLM researcher, a cognitive behavioral therapist, and an astrophysicist walk into a coffee shop. The researcher says, “My AI is almost clairvoyant – it can predict what you’ll say next.” The therapist smiles and retorts, “But can it tell you why you said it.” The astrophysicist looks up at the sky and chimes in, “And I’m trying to figure if there is a planet out there where what people say and what they mean is the same”


Supercharging LLMs

Imagine if your favorite AI could not just predict the next word in a sentence, but multiple words at once, boosting its intelligence and efficiency. It sounds futuristic, but the future is racing at us faster than ever before. Researchers at Meta AI have introduced a groundbreaking training paradigm called multi-token prediction. This method trains AI models to predict several future tokens simultaneously, as opposed to the current method. This enhances their ability to understand long-range dependencies and complex reasoning tasks. This innovation means more coherent and contextually accurate outputs, making AI applications from chatbots to content creation smarter and more reliable. Read this article and learn how this research is shaping the next generation of AI technology.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Ever feel like your thoughts are steering you in the wrong direction and experience a loss of control? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) might be the co pilot you need. This well-researched form of psychotherapy helps us understand the intricate links between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By teaching practical coping strategies, CBT empowers us to challenge and transform unhelpful thought patterns. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, or the everyday stresses of life, CBT offers a collaborative and goal-oriented approach. Discover how CBT can help you turn negative thoughts into positive actions and enhance your emotional well-being. More on this in the article below.


A Clumpy Universe

Are you ready for a mind-bending journey through the cosmos? Using the eRosita X-ray telescope, scientists have mapped thousands of galaxy clusters which are some of the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. These new X-ray observations have unveiled that our universe is just as “clumpy” as cosmologists predicted, aligning with the standard model of cosmology. This discovery provides crucial insights into the distribution of matter and the mysterious forces of dark energy and dark matter. What is clumpiness you might ask, to find out read the article. All I can say is that it’s an exciting time to be a cosmic detective:)


Ignite Ideas, One Prompt At A Time: Plug in this prompt to any LLM to learn about CBT OR Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in depth.

As an expert psychologist specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), create a comprehensive guide for beginners. Define CBT and its importance in modern psychotherapy.
