Sam Altman’s OpenAI

In 2015, Sam Altman collaborated up with Elon Musk and created OpenAI, a research organization focused on advancing artificial intelligence in a responsible and safe manner. Musk, Altman and other prominent Silicon Valley characters including Peter Thiel and LinkedIn co-founder Reed Hoffman pledged one billion dollars to the project under Sam Altman’s leadership. OpenAI has made some of the most significant advances in artificial intelligence in recent years from natural language processing to machine learning to robotics.

The company has a record of accomplishment of breaking new ground and setting the pace for the industry. Yet something went wrong in the relationship with Elon Musk. In 2018, the company stated that the Tesla CEO resigned to eliminate potential future conflict due to the car Maker’s focus on AI. Musk later said he quit the company because he did not agree with some of what the open AI team wanted to do. In 2020, musk said on Twitter that his confidence in the company was not high when it came to safety.

More recently, Musk said he paused OpenAI’s access to Twitter’s database for training its software.

In November 2022, OpenAI launched ChatGPT, an online assistant trained to generate human-like text by predicting the next word in a sequence of words. ChatGPT was specifically trained to engage in conversation and respond to prompts in a natural and coherent way. It is able to generate responses to a wide range of topics and can even initiate conversations on its own. It has a vast knowledge base and can provide information and answer questions on a wide variety of topics.

However, it is important to note that ChatGPT is a machine-learning model and does not have personal experiences or feelings. It generates responses based on patterns and correlations. It has learned from its training data and it may not always provide accurate or appropriate responses. ChatGPT can be used in a variety of applications such as chat bots, virtual assistants and automated customer service systems. 

With the public launch of ChatGPT, the discussion about the impact of artificial intelligence on humans has reignited online. Immediately, people around the world wanted to see if the online assistant could steal their jobs.  Artificial intelligence has been put to work creating games, programming apps, marketing strategies video scripts and more.

The results were surprising but not error free. Even though its technology is quite Advanced, ChatGPT still makes stupid mistakes. For example, it said the fastest Marine Mammal is the peregrine falcon. We know that artificial intelligence can learn something new faster than a human so the question is how advanced will it be in five or ten years. What will human life look like in 20 or 30 years?
