Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates To tell OpenAI’s GPT AI model is said to be the most revolutionary technological advancement since 1980, when we first saw a modern graphical desktop environment (GUI).
Before that, I used my computer via the command line. Gates took “GUI” technology and built Windows on it to create his modern software juggernaut.
Gates now sees parallels with OpenAI’s GPT model, which can write text that resembles human output and generate nearly usable computer code.
hello blog post On Tuesday, he said he asked the OpenAI team last year to develop an artificial intelligence model that could pass the Advanced Placement Biology exam. According to OpenAI, his GPT-4, which was unveiled last week, scored the highest.
“The whole experience has been wonderful,” Gates wrote. “I knew I was witnessing the most significant technological advancement since graphical user interfaces.”
“The development of AI is as fundamental as the creation of microprocessors, personal computers, the internet and mobile phones. AI will change the way people work, learn, travel, manage their health and communicate. Entire industries will reorient around it. Companies will differentiate themselves by how well they use it,” he continued.
Gates is the latest notable technologist to opine on recent advances in AI as a major shift in the tech industry.he joins Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt and the former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Who predicted that database machine learning could change an entire industry.
Current CEOs also see great business opportunities in AI applications and tools. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said on Tuesday that the field is “iPhone moment,“It refers to the time when new technologies are being widely adopted and entrepreneurs see opportunities in new businesses and products.
Gates and Microsoft have close ties to OpenAI, which developed the GPT model. Microsoft invested his $10 billion in this startup and sells some of his AI software through Azure cloud services.
Gates suggests that people who talk about AI should balance their “fear” of biased, wrong, or unfriendly tools with the potential for AI to improve their lives. He also believes governments and charities should support AI tools to improve education and health in developing countries.
