Bill Gates Weighs in on the Opportunities and Responsibilities of a ChatGPT-based AI Future

As far as a “hype cycle meticulously intertwined with a true technology inflection point” – and the signal-to-noise ratio of it all – nothing quite matches this ChatGPT moment.  As Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates recently pointed out: “In my lifetime, I’ve seen two demonstrations of technology that struck me as revolutionary. The first time was in 1980 when I was introduced to a graphical user interface. The second big surprise came just last year. I’d been meeting with the team from OpenAI since 2016 and was impressed by their steady progress.”
