  1. Enjoyable podcast, but this episode with Laurent Boinot got me worried. Did I miss the explanation of how LLMs or SLMs are going to solve hallucination (and other issues well documented by critical data studies and critical AI studies scholars) robustly enough that its use within regulatory reporting regimes of power utilities is an opportunity rather than a risk? Maybe this is something you could revisit in a later episode?
