Generative Artificial Intelligence will change everything. It is likely to impact us more than the industrial revolution. And will happen faster.
With its dynamic, even dizzying evolution, Generative Artificial Intelligence is starting to change so many facets of our daily business and personal lives. As its technology “advances” continue, it will impact us more than the industrial revolution. And it will happen faster.
Very simply put, ChatGPT, GPT4, and Bard use machine learning “large language” models (LLM’s) that produce natural, human-like responses to questions.
Our panel discussion with experts will update us on the current pulse of Generative A.I., providing the latest insightful inputs on many of the latest A.I. developments.
Stephen Hawking in a 2014 interview said that “AI could mean the end of the human race”. Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak signed a letter warning that artificial intelligence poses “profound risks” to humanity. But their companies are investing heavily in technology. And recently Dr. Geoffrey Hinton, A.I. pioneer since 1972 and British-Canadian cognitive psychologist, quit his senior position at Google in April. Increasingly concerned by the aggressive global race between Google, Microsoft, and others to create products based on generative A.I.
It is certain that during the industrial revolution, the “Luddites” said and did similar things. In the 1930’s, the New York Times said that average American families had “no time for this new invention” (the television). And even IBM did not believe that the personal computer would be in everyone’s home when they launched it in the 80’s. There is no doubt that Generative A.I. will impact us all and this is not a time to look the other way!
