Okay, so maybe our next choice was an obvious one. But, we couldn’t run a newsletter this week without mentioning the elephant in the room.
And it’s a big one – a $10bn elephant with Microsoft’s name on it in the form of ChatGPT.
The founders of OpenAI, the organization responsible for developing ChatGPT, included an all-star cast of Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, John Schulman, and Wojciech Zaremba. Being founded in 2015 with the goal of promoting and developing friendly AI in a way that benefits humanity as a whole. The organization has since become one of the leading organizations in the field of A.I. research and development and they believe that AI has the potential to change the world and make our lives easier (which is very welcomed in my opinion). They're a talented bunch, and it's no surprise that they've created something as incredible as ChatGPT.
ChatGPT has been trained on a massive amount of data, which allows it to understand and respond to questions with remarkable accuracy.
Microsoft's investment in ChatGPT is one of the largest investments in AI to date.
The potential applications for ChatGPT are endless, from customer service to content creation.
Bill Gates has declared that A.I. technology like ChatGPT is the next big thing. Yes, you heard that right, it's not just a fad, it's the real deal. Bill's endorsement is like getting a gold star from your favourite teacher, it just adds that extra bit of prestige to your already impressive resume.
ChatGPT is indeed, the new kid on the tech block, and it's making waves. This language model developed by OpenAI is like a chatbot on steroids. It can understand and generate human-like text with a level of accuracy that's nothing short of amazing. With its ability to understand and respond to natural language inputs, ChatGPT is quickly becoming the go-to for companies looking to improve, streamline, and expand their capabilities across departments and functions.
According to Mr. Gates , A.I. technology is "every bit as important as the PC, as the internet". Well, that's quite a statement coming from the man who helped revolutionize the personal computer industry. But it's not just a bold statement, it's a testament to the potential of A.I. technology to!
In conclusion, Bill Gates' endorsement of A.I. technology like ChatGPT is a testament to its potential to shape the future. With more companies investing in and adopting A.I. technology, we can expect to see significant advances in fields ranging from medicine to finance, and beyond. The future is looking bright, and we can't wait to see what the future holds.
