- Tram Ho
In recent days, the question of what is the ability, role and future influence of ChatGPT is making the whole world talk. Some people think that it will be a technology that will completely change people’s lives, “occupy” a lot of jobs and change the way many problems work. There are also opinions that ChatGPT is actually not that “dangerous”, has many vulnerabilities and is just a support chat bot like many other AI chat bots that have appeared. What the real answer is, we have to wait to know.
“AI will be as important as computers and the Internet”
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is clearly one of the people with the sharpest insight into the world of technology, as he himself has contributed to making computers an important tool to influence humanity. And for Bill Gates, he believes that today, an equally important development is starting with ChatGPT and similar artificial intelligence tools.
Talking to Forbes in the context of ChatGPT being “storming”, the billionaire who once held the position of the richest person on the planet said: “AI will be the hottest topic of debate in 2023. And you know what? ? Obviously it should be. It will also become as important as computers, like the Internet.”
Bill Gates is famous not simply because he is rich, but this is the man who helped launch the era of personal computers in the 80s. Before companies like Microsoft and Apple entered the market, computers were mainly owned by computers. owned by large corporations, governments and universities, and is considered a high-tech device, not designed for the average person. And according to him, AI can have a similar impact on society, creating a new development revolution.
The billionaire also said he now spends about 10% of his day talking to the Microsoft team about their product roadmap, although he has long since retired and focuses on philanthropy. Microsoft – the passionate empire of Bill Gates is the “sponsor” of OpenAI – the company that created ChatGPT from the very beginning. In 2019, Microsoft poured 1 billion USD in capital here. In the past week, Microsoft continued to pour billions of dollars more. Although the specific number was not disclosed, the media said that $ 10 billion was invested, bringing the value of OpenAI to $ 29 billion.
The Microsoft founder also talked about how powerful AI is earlier this year. When asked if there are any “shaking” technological changes currently taking place, he replied: “AI is a big technology. AI is quite revolutionary.”
The leaders of the technology village speak up
ChatGPT – the application that uses data collected from millions of websites to answer questions in a clear and conversational manner has shown how smart and useful AI chatbots can be. It can do things from writing essays to providing encryption solutions in seconds, and ChatGPT’s potential impact on the global workforce is enormous.
According to analytics firm UBS, since it was launched on November 30, 2022, after only 2 months, ChatGPT has set a record as the fastest application to attract users in history. The company says ChatGPT is estimated to have reached more than 100 million monthly active users in January, much faster than TikTok or Instagram.
And Bill Gates is not the only one to see the possibilities of ChatGPT. Elon Musk – the world’s second-richest billionaire currently co-founded OpenAI in 2015 with Sam Altman. He withdrew from the company for fear of competition and conflict with his AI-powered electric car company, Tesla.
In December 2022, Google – another technology giant issued a “red code” for chatbots. Since the latest version of ChatGPT was released in November, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and parent company Alphabet has been in a number of meetings around Google’s AI strategy to deal with the threat. threat that chatbots pose to a company’s search engine. Pichai also had to enlist the help of co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to overcome ChatGPT’s menacing challenge.
Many researchers warn that the potential impact of AI models is now up for debate, as once released, they cannot be withdrawn. “It’s like an ‘invader species’. We need policymaking to deal with the speed of technology right away,” said Aviv Ovadya, a research fellow at Harvard University’s Center for Internet and Society.
