OpenAI’s ChatGPT has made a significant impact in the past year, sparking hype and fear across the tech industry.

The company faced internal turmoil, with its CEO ousted and reinstated, and the technology’s potential consequences causing disagreement among leaders.

“It really wasn’t until ChatGPT was put into the hands of people and they could use it themselves, at scale, that the world woke up to the AI revolution and what is happening,” Jeff Clune, a computer science professor at the University of British Columbia.

“Many people incorrectly focus on the current, seemingly magical capabilities of AI, without properly looking at the rate of improvement over time. Things continue to get better exponentially,” Clune told CNN. “The stuff that AI can do now is just the beginning.”

Suresh Venkatasubramanian, a professor at Brown University, “This has always been a tendency in AI, or whenever any new piece of tech comes along, that ‘This is the answer that will solve everything.'”

“It’s too soon to know whether it’s lived up to the hype,” he remarked.

While it has facilitated tasks and improved performance for some, it has also negatively affected employment opportunities and raised concerns about its limitations and equitable impact.

The technology’s future role and potential challenges, including societal adaptation and wealth distribution, remain uncertain.

OpenAI’s mission to ensure AI benefits humanity faces scrutiny amid internal struggles and the need for creative solutions to navigate the AI transition.

“Many, many, many jobs that are currently done by humans, AI will be able to do,” said Clune, the AI researcher at the University of British Columbia. “How does society adapt to that?”

“It could go really well or it could go really terribly,” he added, pointing to dueling future world visions where AI tools doing work could either lead to humans having more time to spend with their families and on things they are passionate about –— or a world in which “only the very wealthy few are getting all the money, and we’re not doing anything to provide meaning for people who have lost the ability to get paid.”

“The transition is going to be challenging,” he concluded.
