ChatGPT is on the rise as the most widely used chatbot today, and it knows this Bill Gates. For the co-founder of Microsoft, the Artificial Intelligence of OpenAI “It’s very, very impressive.”
Microsoft recently partnered more deeply with OpenAI, resulting in a medium to long-term improvement for the chatbot.
The billionaire chatted with Forbes about ChatGPT, as well as reflect on Artificial Intelligence in general lines.
Let’s remember that ChatGPT is a chat system that is based on the GPT-3 Artificial Intelligence language model. It has more than 175 million users since November 2022, although that number continues to rise.
It is capable not only of interacting with the user, but also of preparing essays and other texts. In the academic world it is viewed with resentment, due to the possibility of impersonating students or professionals.
But, what does Bill Gates think about ChatGPT? What are the pros and cons of the OpenAI chatbot?
“I know that OpenAI’s work is better than others. I’m not saying they’re the only ones. In fact, you know, part of what’s surprising is that there will be a lot of participants in this space,” said the philanthropist.
“But what OpenAI did is very, very impressive, and they are certainly leaders in many aspects of AI, that people are seeing through the wide availability of ChatGPT.”

However, Gates acknowledges that the chatbot still has a ways to go.
“It’s really imperfect. No one suggests that you don’t make mistakes, and it’s not very intuitive. And then, with something like math, it’s completely wrong,” Gates says. He knows that constant training will make Artificial Intelligence better and better.
Bill Gates spoke with Greg Brockman and Sam Altman of OpenAI, noting that “They were able to convince me that there was significant emergent behavior as these large language models were extended, and they did some really innovative things with reinforcement learning.”
Which the great concern of the tycoon about Artificial Intelligence in general terms?
“The long-term problem, which is not yet with us, is what worries people: the issue of control”, considers Bill Gates. “What if the humans who control it take it in the wrong direction? If the humans lose control, what does that mean? I think those are valid debates.”
