OpenAI CEO skeptical about ChatGPT being the new Google


The launch of the intelligent robot ChatGPT has made the technological community speculate about the chance of the platform taking the place of Google. The CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman, says he does not believe this, in an interview with the digital vehicle StrictlyVC, led by Connie Loizos, editor of Tech Crunch.

“People forget that a giant company can take countermeasures and is very competent and smart. I do consider that search models will go through changes at some point, but they won’t be as drastic as people expect,” he said. site.

This Friday (20), Google announced that it will launch its own chatbot with artificial intelligence to compete with ChatGPT. According to the New York Times, the statement comes after the first threat to the US$ 149 billion (R$ 774.5 billion) business involving the search engine.

Another big tech, Microsoft, will invest $10 billion in OpenAI. The company will include ChatGPT in Azure OpenAI, a cloud service that offers artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for companies. The technology should also be used to implement Bing, the search engine owned by Windows.

Today, Altman’s startup cannot operate on Google’s scale. The beta version of ChatGPT cannot meet the current demand and puts users on hold quite often.

In a conversation with Elon Musk in December, the OpenAI executive said that each question costs less than ten cents. That would amount to hundreds of millions of dollars a day if ChatGPT processed 8.5 billion searches like Google does.

According to USP computing professor André Carlos Ponce de Leon, the tendency is for this operation to become cheaper. ChatGPT already requires less processing time than its GPT-3 predecessor.

With technological advances, machines with greater computational power also become cheaper. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in Davos that artificial intelligence will advance hand in hand with quantum computing, a branch that promises to revolutionize hardware processing capacity.

The operating cost cuts earned OpenAI its biggest scandal to date. Time magazine revealed that the owner of ChatGPT outsourced work in Kenya to label texts about extreme violence and sexual matters.

One of the workers told the magazine that he suffered from symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Hourly wages varied between US$1.34 and US$2 — around R$1,482 to R$2,245 per month.

The use of cheap service in the global south is fundamental in the training of artificial intelligences, according to researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute Jonas Valente. “There are jobs that would take years to be done by lean research teams, which are done in months by armies of people dedicated to microwork”.
