The growing influence of ChatGPT has prompted several tech giants such as Google and Microsoft to unveil their own artificial intelligence tools. Microsoft has invested billions in OpenAI, the company that owns ChatGPT, to power a GPT-based search engine called Bing.
Meanwhile, Google has launched its own AI model called Bard to compete with ChatGPT. At the heart is the fight for users and control over the way information flows on the Internet.
As advanced AI technologies continue to develop rapidly, Elon Musk has warned of the possible consequences of an AI arms race between tech companies fighting for supremacy in the search engine and browser market.
Elon Musk tweeted, “Sure would be ironic if civilizations ended because of a fight over browser/search market share.”
Musk apparently believes that an AI race between companies like ChatGPT, Bing, and Bard could result in the development of AI systems that are far more powerful than humans and capable of making decisions that may not be in our best interests.
Musk warns that this rivalry could eventually lead to the end of civilization as we know it. Musk wants AI to be approached with caution. His tweet shows how he wants AI tools to be developed in a safe, ethical, and responsible way.
Recently, OpenAI launched GPT-4, the successor to GPT-3, which powers ChatGPT. GPT-4 is smarter, more efficient, and can potentially replace many businesses.
In fact, the new language model could already replace at least 20 businesses. Additionally, GPT-4 has the ability to convert text to images. Microsoft has already integrated GPT-4 in its new Bing.
Google has also opened up access to Bard, meaning the public can now use it. In addition, Google has integrated AI capabilities into its applications including Sheets and Docs.
Google’s move was copied by Microsoft, which announced a new application called “Copilot” that integrates AI capabilities into Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other applications.
These apps have become so smart that you don’t even need to write an entire document on Word, you can just type a prompt and wait for the AI tool to do its job.
While these devices greatly simplify our lives, they also create concerns about job security. If a machine can do it all, why would a company pay extra money to a human to do the same thing?
AI models can perform many tasks more efficiently than humans, despite lacking human emotion. Many experts agree that the use of AI will lead to widespread disruption of work, life, and productivity in both positive and negative ways.
