Future AI changes: Altman said he was surprised by the creative power of society since the advent of innovative technologies. “It will be the collective power and creativity and will of humanity that figure out what to do with it,” he said.

On the good and bad of AI: “We have to be careful here,” said Altman, who advocates real-world testing of AI.

“I think it doesn’t work to do it all in a lab. They have to bring these products into the real world and get in touch with reality and make our mistakes while the stakes are low,” he added.

“I think people should be happy that we’re a little scared of it,” said the OpenAI CEO. “If I said I don’t have any [scared]you should either not trust me or be very unhappy that I am in this job.”

As AI models get better and better at writing computer code, he raised concerns that they could also be used for cyberattacks.

When asked how confident he was that the systems his company was developing would not have harmful consequences, the tech entrepreneur replied that rolling out these systems now, while the stakes are low, could allow for the creation of a tight feedback loop , he added.

Will human labor be completely eliminated? Despite fears that AI could one day completely replace human jobs, Altman said humans are still a crucial part of the workforce. He added that GPT technology serves as a tool – not a replacement – for humans.

“With every major technological revolution in human history, jobs have changed a lot, some jobs have even gone away, and I’m sure we’re going to see a lot of that here,” Altman said while elaborating on The Human Demand for new ventures is limitless. “We find new jobs, we find new things to do,” he said.

Altman said he worries most about the speed of change caused by AI. “If that happens in a single digit number of years, some of those shifts are — that’s the part I’m most worried about,” he said.

The tech entrepreneur also said that AI can do good things if implemented properly. “This will eliminate many existing jobs. That’s right. We can do much better,” he admitted.

Whether ChatGPT is a Google Killer: Altman ruled out OpenAI’s competition with Alphabet, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) Google Search. “If you look at this as a quest, that’s kind of the wrong framework,” he said.
