Billionaire Elon Musk took a dig at fellow billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates over his knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI). He insisted that Mr. Gates has a “limited” understanding of AI.
This was in response to a tweet by Sandy Kory, who praised the leadership of Mr Gates at Microsoft and his approach towards AI. “‘I’d been meeting with the team from OpenAI since 2016…” –from Bill Gates’ essay The Age of AI Has Begun. It’s big when someone like Gates is so bullish on AI. Also notable that MSFT has been tracking this so closely for so long,” he said.
Mr. Kory was referring to a long, 3,639-word essay the billionaire wrote on his blog titled “The Age of A.I. Has Begun”. He wrote about how humanity was waiting for another great revolution. Mr. Gates discussed the potential impact of AI on employment, health care and education.

It's big when someone like Gates is so bullish on AI.
Also notable that MSFT has been tracking this so closely for so long.
“As computing power gets cheaper, GPT’s ability to express ideas will increasingly be like having a white-collar worker available to help you with various tasks. Microsoft describes this as having a co-pilot. Fully incorporated into products like Office, AI will enhance your work-for example by helping with writing emails and managing your inbox,” the blog read.
Responding to the same, Twitter CEO Elon Musk said, “I remember the early meetings with Gates. His understanding of AI was limited. Still is.”

According to a report in Fortune, Mr. Musk started working with OpenAI in 2015. He was one of the company’s early investors, which is a possible reason why he attended “early meetings” with the Microsoft co-founder.
He left the company in 2018 due to a potential conflict of interest arising from Tesla’s own artificial intelligence research.
