According to news in the morning of February 3, Beijing time, ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence writer and chat tool, has recently become a huge hit on the Internet, which attracted the attention of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Bill Gates said of ChatGPT that the emergence of this artificial intelligence technology is as historic as the birth of the Internet and personal computers.
Gates said that in 2023, artificial intelligence will become the most concerned hot plate, he personally believes that this phenomenon is very reasonable.
Gates said that the emergence of new artificial intelligence technologies, including chat robots, is as important as the emergence of personal computers and the Internet.
In the 1980s, mankind began to enter the era of personal computers, and Gates played a very important role. Before Microsoft and Apple began to enter the PC market, computers were only luxury products for large enterprises, government agencies and universities. Computers were regarded as a kind of high-tech equipment, not for ordinary consumers.
In Gates' view, artificial intelligence technology is no less than personal computers in terms of the impact on society.
ChatGPT, a popular artificial intelligence writing and chat tool, collects data from millions of websites around the world and can clearly answer users' questions or write articles in a conversational way. This tool can play a role in article writing, software coding and other aspects, showing the powerful energy of artificial intelligence chat robots. The technology will also have a huge impact on workers around the world.
Of course, ChatGPT's technology is not perfect, and sometimes the chat robot can't recognize false information and often gives the wrong answer.
Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI, the developer of ChatGPT, which focuses on artificial intelligence technology in 2019. This investment partnership also gives Microsoft exclusive access to some of the other party's exclusive technology licenses.
Recently, Microsoft announced that it will continue to invest more money in OpenAI. In January, Microsoft announced that it was about to make a "multi-year, multi-billion-dollar" investment in OpenAI. An authoritative financial media in the United States reported that Microsoft's investment this time may be 10 billion US dollars.
Gates didn't just notice that ChatGPT stood out. At the end of last year, Google issued an "alert message" for this new product. When the latest version of ChatGPT was launched on November 30 last year, Google realized that the artificial intelligence chat product would pose a threat to Google's core search engine, according to an authoritative US media report. Google held several meetings to discuss the coping strategy of Google's artificial intelligence business, and Google CEO Pichai and executives of parent company Alphabet attended the meeting.
According to reports, in response to this emergency, Google management even invited two Google co-founders (Page and Brin) to jointly discuss countermeasures.
Microsoft plans to use the technology behind ChatGPT to drive its own search engine Bing, according to a US technology media report.
Historically, Gates is not a big fan of OpenAI. According to reports, when Microsoft first decided to invest in OpenAI, Gates even questioned the company's technology prospects.
Sources said that before Microsoft made the investment decision, Gates studied OpenAI's artificial intelligence technology very seriously, and he was worried about whether artificial intelligence could really understand the highly context-based language communication of human beings.
