During the Goldman Sachs and SV Angel event on artificial intelligence, Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates said that in the future company that develops the best AI as a personal assistant (agent) will have the upper hand over its competitors.
Further, he said these AI technologies will change user behavior, and they no longer need search engines or other productivity tools to shop on Amazon.
It will take a little while for these AI technologies to dominate and start using them as mainstream.
According to Microsoft owner Bill Gates, the top Artificial Intelligence company will create a personal digital agent that will perform tasks for the person in the future.
According to him, technology will be dominated so much that user behavior will also adapt to that technology. Ha said that if a person gets an AI as a personal agent, then he will never go for the search engine or any other productivity sites, nor will go to Amazon.
In the future, this developing AI assistant will be able to know the person’s habits and needs. Bill Gates said, “It assists people in reading the stuff that they do not get spare time to read.”
Further, he said in the future, there are equal chances that the one who will develop AI as a personal assistant will either be a startup or a technology giant company.
He also showed his desire by saying that he would be disappointed if Microsoft did not come in this category to develop successful AI technology.
He also praised Inflection.AI co-founded by former Deep Mind executive Mustafa Suleyman by saying that he is impressed with the few startups including Infection.
Furthermore, he said it will take some time before AI as a digital assistant starts to use as mainstream. Until then, companies will use generative AI models like ChatGPT in their products.
At the same event, Bill Gates also discussed AI and its positive impact on the health department. He declares that there will be novel innovations in space and more advancements in drug development that create a useful drug that can even cure Alzheimer-like diseases.
Gates spoke about generative AI many times before and was quite impressed with ChatGPT and profess that chatbots would make office jobs a lot easier.
For now, top technology companies offer various virtual assistants like google assistant, Siri, Alexa, etc. but they don’t possess a generative AI approach. And AI chatbots like ChatGPT, Bing, Bard hasa generative AI approach that makes them act like a Personal assistant, but these technologies are currently in the developing stage. Although, AI as a personal assistant is not far from the present.
ChatGPT owner Open Ai has also partnered with Microsoft in which Microsoft virtual assistant Bing also has GPT LMM (Language Model for Microsoft) that generates more conversational and human-like replies to users. Microsoft also claims that they are working on a Private ChatGPT for organizations.
