Technology that claims to wipe out Google Search and Amazon, what Bill Gates has to say:
Bill Gates reportedly foresaw that soon, robots would replace blue-collar occupations and humanoids would make industrial work much more affordable and effective, according to livemint.com. He predicted that the end of Google Search and Amazon is drawing near with the evolving pace of artificial intelligence.
The billionaires claimed at a recent AI event in 2023 that was held by Goldman Sachs and SV Angel that if a new AI tool understands human thought patterns, sentiments, and needs then it can easily modify or manipulate human behavior. In reference to this, Gates noted that as artificial intelligence develops; a human will never visit a search website or a productivity website that is they won’t go to Amazon again.
White-collar occupations are still in risk of being displaced, according to Gates, even with AI producing engaging, accurate, and high-quality content. Given Microsoft‘s $10 billion investment in OpenAI‘s ChatGPT, Gates, 67, is optimistic that the company will take the lead in developing yet-to-be-designed AI. He added that corporations would include ChatGPT-like features into their products to satisfy client requests until AI completely overturned established big tech business models. Gates said that he was impressed by Inflection AI which is co-founded by entrepreneur Reid Hoffman. To date, various industry tech players have worked on building a computer assistant that is powered by AI and that consumers can command by text or speech to handle a range of tasks for them.
Gates also commented that whoever wins the personal agent is a big thing. Microsoft has begun integrating Chat GPT with MS Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook. Past in April this year, Gates mentioned that calls to pause the development of AI will not solve future challenges. It would be better to concentrate on how to exploit the advancements in AI as a technology-turned-philanthropist because it was difficult to imagine how a worldwide halt could function.
Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in Open AI, the company that owns ChatGPT, in an effort to outperform competitors. Sam Altman, the creator of ChatGPT, is currently meeting with key officials from European nations to discuss the development of ChatGPT and the future of AI. A “very productive week of conversations in Europe and about how to best regulate AI,” he said of his survey week.
ChatGPT which is powered by AI and backed by Microsoft has created new possibilities around AI and fears around its potential provoking alarm and excitement both fetching a tough conflict with its regulators. Last Thursday, OpenAI announced that it would distribute 10 equally distributed awards totaling $1 million for experiments to ascertain how AI software should be managed. Altman referred to these funds as a means of democratically determining how AI systems should behave. According to Gates, AI-powered personal assistants will read articles that users don’t have time to read while also drastically altering their behaviour to the point where they stop using some services.
The new personal agent is believed to be very powerful and the company that wins the race for AI digital agent or personal AI assistant will have a huge advantage over its competitors. According to Gates, corporations will continue incorporating Generative AI-based technologies into their offers until this potent AI personal assistant is ready. To enhance the user experience, businesses have hurried to include AI-based technologies like OpenAI‘s GPT-4 or Google-backed Anthropic.
