Sam Altman, OpenAI CEO, was recently interviewed by Forbes magazine about the company’s progress and future plans. OpenAI is the most highly regarded startup within the fast-growing generative AI sector. In the interview, Altman talked about the company’s journey and its meteoric rise of its first product, ChatGPT. Due to the bot’s bizarrely politicized answers, including waxing poetically about Joe Biden or displaying leftist biases on many popular topics, it has been controversial.
Altman described current circumstances as “an exciting time”The founder expressed his hope for the future of ChatGPT, pointing out that it was in its early days and still has a lot of potential. OpenAI views ChatGPT’s success as just one step on a long, exponential road to improving AI technology.
Altman, when asked his opinion on ChatGPT’s success, stated that he was shocked by the sudden popularity of ChatGPT. “I wanted to do it because I thought it was going to work. So, I’m surprised somewhat by the magnitude. But I was hoping and expecting people were going to really love it.”
Altman also expressed that he’s a capitalist but that the AGI (artificial general intelligence that thinks like humans) could possibly disrupt the current economic system. “I think capitalism is awesome. I love capitalism,”Altman. “Of all of the bad systems the world has, it’s the best one — or the least bad one we found so far. I hope we find a way better one. And I think that if AGI really truly fully happens, I can imagine all these ways that it breaks capitalism.”
Altman made comments about the similarities between AI markets and new technologies, such as search engines and cloud computing. Altman said there were similarities between the two technologies, but it was important to understand what makes each one unique. OpenAI can be compared to the cloud computing battles of companies such as Microsoft or Google, but there will also be differences in how companies choose to enter the AI market.
When asked about the possibility of ChatGPT replacing traditional search engines like Google Search, Altman said that while he doesn’t think ChatGPT will replace search, he believes that an AI system could someday. “I mean, I don’t think ChatGPT does [replace Search]. But I think someday, an AI system could. More than that, though, I think people are just totally missing the opportunity if you’re focused on yesterday’s news. I’m much more interested in thinking about what comes way beyond search. ”
