Potbelly, a local sandwich chain, made me an offer I couldn't refuse: change my password and earn a free (and quite tasty) oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. A free cookie is a great motivator, and checking that this wasn't some clever phishing attack, changed my password and got my cookie. Not sure why Potbelly wanted me to change my password but happy to take their cookie.
Potbelly likely didn't make this offer to everyone so what if you want a cookie?
- Use an app to get a cookie delivered.
- Visit a specialty cookie store.
- Go to your local supermarket and pick up a package of Chip's Ahoy.
- Buy some pre-made cookie dough and put it in the oven.
- Buy some cookie mix, add ingredients and bake.
- Find a cookie recipe, buy the ingredients and get cooking
- Get fresh ingredients direct from a farm stand
- Grow and gather your own ingredients, ala Pancakes Pancakes
- Not even realize you are using machine learning, such as recommendations on Netflix or Facebook.
- Using ML implicitly, like talking to Alexa
- Using pre-trained ML through an app, like Google Translate
- Using pre-trained ML through an API
- Using a model like GPT-3 with an appropriate prompt
- Use an easily trained model like Amazon Fraud Detector
- An integrated machine learning environment like Sagemaker
- Use pre-built ML tools like TensorFlow or PyTorch
- Code up your own ML algorithms in C++
- Build your own hardware and software
