The transformative potential of artificial intelligence
Microsoft reportedly plans to invest $10 billion investment in OpenAI, the artificial intelligence company famous for creating the ChatGPT bot.
Why is the software giant doing this despite the threat that AI poses to democracy? Azeem Azhar, the founder of the Exponential View newsletter, puts the question to Microsoft President Brad Smith during a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.
First, Smith explains, Microsoft has strict compliance rules to ensure that ChatGPT doesn't do bad stuff. And that's crucial to integrate the tech into all its products so anyone can use it.
Second, he believes that generative AI — bots becoming as smart as humans — can be a tool for both creative expression and critical thinking.
