The CEO of the company that created ChatGPT believes that artificial intelligence technologies will radically change society. He believes it offers significant hazards, but it also has the potential to be “the greatest technology humanity has yet invented” and dramatically improve our quality of life.
Rebecca Jarvis, the company’s chief business officer for technology, spoke with Altman in an exclusive interview about the introduction of GPT-4, the most recent version of the AI language model.
Altman stated in his interview that OpenAI requires regulators and society to be as involved in ChatGPT implementation as possible since input will assist prevent any negative effects the technology may have on humans. He went on to add that he is in “regular contact” with government officials.
Despite the fact that it was just recently released, it is already considered as the consumer application with the fastest growth rate in history. The app quickly surpassed 100 million monthly active users. TikTok took nine months and Instagram nearly three years to attain that number of users.
GPT-4’s result on the Uniform Bar Test was “not fantastic,” according to Altman, but it was in the 90th percentile. It presently has near-perfect SAT math scores and can easily create computer code in most programming languages.
GPT-4 is only one step toward OpenAI’s goal of creating Artificial General Intelligence, which can be defined as AI systems that are normally smarter than humans.
While Altman is pleased with the success of his product, he is concerned about the potential for dangerous AI uses.
