In an interview published February 10, Bill Gates argues that advances in AI are the “most important” innovation today. “Until now, artificial intelligence could read and write but not understand the content. New programs like ChatGPT will make many office tasks more efficient by supporting writing invoices and letters. This will change the world.”he predicted.
“Today, we require too much computation but not always accuracy. But this week, you’ve heard announcements from Microsoft and Google, two companies vying for the top spot.” Gates shares on the podcast.
Microsoft says the Bing search engine will integrate the technology behind ChatGPT. Google also just introduced the smart chatbot Bard.
Gates co-founded Microsoft in 1975 and led the company for more than two decades before stepping down as CEO in 2000. “I am also biased”, Gates joked, not forgetting to note that he is still a consultant for the software company. Things that AI can improve for reading and writing will have a “huge impact.” In health and education, Gates believes AI will improve efficiency.
If the traditional AIs can’t really process the input language, the new generation AI like ChatGPT trained, improved, and read and understood through new knowledge. Gates points to word processing features or office tasks as potential applications of AI platforms like ChatGPT.
For example, he gives the example of Microsoft Teams that has integrated AI to monitor conversations in a meeting to produce relevant information. The process will get even better in the years to come.
Although it was just launched in November 2022, ChatGPT quickly became a new “power” in the field of AI. In just two months, the chatbot has attracted 100 million users – the fastest in technology history. Microsoft invested $10 billion in OpenAI, the startup behind ChatGPT, and challenged Google.
