According to reports, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (Satya Nadella) said in a recent interview that with regard to concerns about artificial intelligence, "the whole society" must unite to "maximize the opportunities and reduce risks brought about by this technology."
"We definitely want the benefits of this technology while reducing the unintended consequences," Nadella said. The leadership and unity required will certainly pose challenges, but it must be done. "
Since OpenAI's chat robot ChatGPT was released and became popular at the end of last year, generative artificial intelligence technology has suddenly attracted public attention. Since then, lawmakers, opinion leaders and technicians have been discussing how to regulate the technology.
The craze around generative artificial intelligence technology has fuelled an artificial intelligence arms race between large technology companies such as Google and Microsoft, which is also a long-time partner of OpenAI. However, the rapid development of technology has caused concern among lawmakers and industry leaders. For example, Elon Musk, chief executive of Tesla, signed an open letter in March, calling on artificial intelligence laboratories to suspend the development of advanced artificial intelligence.
Nadella said in an interview that the development of artificial intelligence is very fast, but people are still an indispensable part of the whole link.
"I feel that artificial intelligence is developing rapidly, but it is also moving in the right direction," he said. Human beings are in the circle, not outside the circle. It's a design choice, at least we've made it. "
Although many people are cautious and even resist advanced artificial intelligence technology, more and more people believe that it will bring about changes and change the rules of the game. Tech executives and venture capitalists see the advent of ChatGPT as a "iPhone moment" for smartphones. Bill Gates, for example, said in an interview in February that artificial intelligence "will change our world".
'whenever a new disruptive technology emerges, the job market can change a lot, 'Mr. Nadella said. But he also believes that artificial intelligence can create new jobs. "I mean, there could be 1 billion developers. In fact, the world needs 1 billion developers. As a result, this tool makes it easier to acquire new technologies and knowledge, thereby reducing the slope of the learning curve. "
Nadella also said that easier access to knowledge would also have an impact on the education industry. Eventually, children may have access to an "artificial intelligence tutor" that can break down information and eliminate "fear of learning". Although critical thinking is still "largely done by humans", humans now have the opportunity to take advantage of new tools.
"Jobs has a very good saying, 'computers are like bicycles for the mind,'" he said. Now that we have upgraded, we have a steam engine for the mind. "
