Sam Altman Shares His Optimistic View of AI Future

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, in a speech on the stage of Station F in Paris, answered questions from local entrepreneurs about his idea of the image of the future in the context of the active development and dissemination of artificial intelligence.

Sam Altman Shares His Optimistic View of AI Future

Altman traveled across Europe last week, meeting with heads of government and representatives of startup communities to discuss AI regulation issues. The meeting in Paris was the finale of the European tour of the CEO of OpenAI.

Altman, during a meeting in the French capital, summarized the results of communication with heads of government and representatives of startups, saying that at present the key issue is to establish a balance between neutralizing threats related to AI in the context of a potential scenario, and providing space for technology development.

Also, the head of OpenAI said that the purpose of the European trip is to get out of the Bay Area technology bubble.

Altman said that the current state of artificial intelligence causes him a feeling of delight. According to him, the advantage of AI is that the technology demonstrates a high level of efficiency in various fields of application, and not in one direction. Separately, Altman mentioned that artificial intelligence is particularly useful in education and has the potential to transform this industry on a global scale.

He also noted that both GPT and other AI models are useful for improving productivity in a variety of activities, including software development.

Communication in Paris is also concerned with the issues of regulating the process of development and application of artificial intelligence. A few days before he visited France, Altman took part in an event at University College London, during which he stated that excessive regulation could be the reason for OpenAI’s decision to cease operations in Europe. But then he wrote on his Twitter page that his company had no plans to leave the European market. Altman also noted in this message that the firm wants confidence in the availability of technical capabilities to continue operations in Europe.

In Paris, Altman also shared his optimistic forecasts about major technological breakthroughs, in particular concerning nuclear fusion. According to him, these breakthroughs will occur shortly and will solve the problem of climate change.

The CEO of OpenAI in France repeated the previously voiced belief that the advantages of artificial intelligence far exceed its disadvantages. He also noted the need to create a global regulatory framework for regulating processes in the AI industry, similar to that used in the nuclear industry and biotechnology.

Speaking about the future of OpenAI, Altman said that the company is currently focused on creating more efficient, cheaper, faster, and maximally productive AI models with an expanded database.

The success of OpenAI and ChatGPT has led to increased competition in the field of artificial intelligence. Many other AI companies and labs are working on large language models and generative configurations of machine consciousness. Altman positively assesses this state of affairs. According to him, the situation in which the process of competition increases the level of security is positive.

Altman expressed confidence that there will not be a unified artificial intelligence model under which all other configurations will not remain. In his opinion, some models will become specialized. Altman stated that there will be many configurations of artificial intelligence in the world.

The head of OpenAI interprets artificial intelligence as a space of opportunities for creating new things and unlocking potential, as well as a catalyst for changing people’s attitudes to certain problems. Altman does not consider AI a threat to employment. He stated that he does not share the belief that at a certain stage of the development of artificial intelligence, people will lose any job and any goal. Altman believes that the use of more advanced tools does not reduce the volume of human labor.

According to the head of OpenAI, advanced technologies will adapt to human needs, and people will adapt to the capabilities of digital intelligence. He is convinced that the development of the technology sector and the development of society will become a joint process.
