Co-founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, entered the controversy over the future of artificial intelligence (AI). Like other tech gurus, he admitted it it will completely change the behavior of users and he aimed more with his prediction: he said he will eliminate very popular tools like the search engine Google or e-commerce sites like Amazonia.
During the AI Forward 2023 event in San Francisco hosted by Goldman Sachs Group Inc and SV Angel, the tech mogul predicted that the company that ultimately wins the artificial intelligence (AI) race will do so by developing a personal digital assistant.
Specifically, in the race to develop the best tool driven by generative AI, tech giants like Google, with Bard, and Microsoft, with Bing, as well as startups like OpenAI, with ChatGPT, are at the forefront.
According to the billionaire, this AI assistant, which has not yet been developed, will have the ability to do this understand a person’s needs and habits also terminate your use of the websites as we know them.
“you will never come back go (on the internet) aa search site (like Google), you will never visit a productivity site again, you will never go to amazon againGates said at a Goldman Sachs and SV Angel event in San Francisco on the topic of artificial intelligence.
For this – he added – “the most important thing is who wins the personal agent”.
As for the company that will create this wizard, Gates said he would be disappointed if Microsoft didn’t “step in” and that he would be “impressed” by a couple of startups, among others. Inflection.AIco-founded by former DeepMind executive Mustafa Suleyman.
What does Bill Gates think about the rise of artificial intelligence
It is not the first time that Bill Gates has expressed his opinion on the present and future of this increasingly booming technology, which generates both admirers and detractors at the same time.
Earlier this year, for example, he assured that generative artificial intelligence platforms, such as ChatGPT, Dall-E or Midjourney, had the potential to be revolutionary. At the time, he compared them to the web3 and the metaverse, and ensured that neither of the latter two would be strong or massive enough to make a similar impact.
He also acknowledged that AI will be key to improving both the job market and medicine and education.
Furthermore, Bill Gates was a leading opponent of the idea of halting the development of language models more powerful than GPT-4.
“We should try to balance fears about the downsides of AI, which are understandable and valid, with its ability to improve people’s lives. To get the most out of this amazing new technology, we need to protect ourselves from the risks and spread the benefits to as many people as possible,” Bill Gates said earlier.
