Amid the hype surrounding OpenAI's ChatGPT and GPT, a chatbot co-founder Sam Altman discussed several aspects of the technology in a recent interview.
Altman told ABC that people are really having fun with the Chatbot and seeing the many ways in which it can help with different tasks, as well as the many ways that can be helped with the company's chatbot.
He said that it is a technology that rewards experimentation and that people are finding real value in using it.
Altman said that he has been surprised by the creative power of society since the emergence of innovative technology. He said it was going to be the collective power and creativity of humanity that figure out what they can do with these.
Altman, who advocates for real-world testing of AI, said that we have to be cautious on the Good And Bad Of AI.
I think it doesn't work to do all this in a lab. He said that we have to get these products out into the real world and make contact with reality and make our mistakes while the stakes are low.
The CEO of OpenAI said that people should be happy that they're a little bit scared of this. If I said I was not scared, you should not trust me or be very unhappy in this job. The Worst Possible Outcome: While conceding that AI models could lead to a set of very bad outcomes, Altman said that the one thing he was particularly worried about was the fact that these models could be used for large-scale disinformation.
As AI models get better at writing computer code, he expressed concerns that they could also be used for cyberattacks.
When asked how confident he was that the systems his company developed would not lead to harmful consequences, the tech entrepreneur responded that putting these systems out now while the stakes are low could allow for the creation of a tight feedback loop.
Will the human workforce be completely dismantled? Altman said that humans are still a critical part of the workforce despite worries that AI could replace human jobs. He said that the GPT technology serves as a tool and not a substitution for humans.
With every great technological revolution in human history, Jobs change a lot, and I'm sure we'll see a lot of that here, Altman said, while elaborating that the human demand for new ventures is limitless. He said that when we find new jobs, we find new things to do.
Altman said he is worried about the speed of change caused by AI. If this happens in a single-digit number of years, some of these shifts are the ones I worry about the most, he said.
If implemented properly, AI can do good things, according to the tech entrepreneur. It is going to eliminate a lot of current jobs. He admitted that we can make much better ones.
On whether ChatGPT is a Google Killer, Altman ruled out OpenAI's competition with Alphabet, Inc.'s GOOGL GOOG Google Search. If you're thinking about this as a search, it's kind of the wrong framework, he said.
He added that although people may use Google Search and ChatGPT in certain instances, the two are fundamentally different products.
