According to Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, artificial intelligence (AI) technology has the potential to drastically change society, but also has real dangers, as reported by ABC News. He believes that AI chatbots could “eliminate a lot of current jobs” but also has the potential to be “the greatest technology humanity has yet developed” to improve our lives.
Altman emphasized the importance of being careful with AI development, stating that people should be happy that “we are a little bit scared of this.” He also discussed the possible effects of chatbots powered by AI on education, suggesting that it could encourage laziness among students. However, Altman also acknowledged that technology has changed education before, such as when the calculator was introduced.

Altman and his team want users to think of ChatGPT as a “co-pilot” in any field, someone who can help users write complex computer code or solve problems. ChatGPT Plus, OpenAI’s subscription service to access its text-generating AI, is now available in India, giving users early access to new features, including GPT-4.
Altman’s concerns about AI are not unfounded. AI chatbots could potentially replace many jobs in various industries, leading to significant changes in the workforce. However, Altman’s belief in the potential benefits of AI is also valid. AI has the potential to improve healthcare, make transportation more efficient, and even help solve climate change.
