Microsoft’s founder and IT czar turned philanthropist Bill Gates praised a lot of Indians at this G20 session held in https://safetysignandlabel.com.au/ (naked url) Delhi on March 1.
Gates was the guest of honour for the G20 summit event and in the event, he praised and patted India’s excellent work in the field of digitalisation. He is very impressed by observing the dependability, and affordable connectivity of the internet under one roof. And claimed the most affordable 5G connectivity is available in India.
Gates also discussed and praised India’s digital aadhar identity system and payment infrastructure and also specifically mentioned the India-Singapore payment transfer initiative and the quick steps taken to integrate a lot of people into the banking system.
He also further mentioned that from the beginning, the digital vision has covered things like facilitating the interchange of educational resources and helping the government in its duties.
Commenting on the hype of ChatGPT, Gates said ChatGPT is a very, very valuable tool.
Gates further said, “The leadership at Microsoft, Satya Nadella, and others at Open AI engaged me in looking at ChatGPT. I am very enthused by it. It’s amazing. Sometimes it doesn’t get it right. But it surprises you. Artificial intelligence (AI) up until now could recognise photos and speech. But it could not read or write. GPT has done that. It is a very, very valuable tool.”
When asked about whether ChatGPT will replace the jobs shortly, he said that earlier also everyone has the same dilemma when calculators, were approved in the market. But in that case, everyone observed the good side of it. No doubt AI can take any paper and give you proper suggestions. But at the same time, it is equally important to know how to write the stories and should know a basic understanding of maths.
Gates further remarked, “Many jobs have evolved…There are many unmet needs in health and education. In agriculture,90% of the jobs have gone, but they have found better-skilled jobs. The governments need to engage in AI to solve a lot of policy questions.”
Gates gave a very negative attribution towards the cryptocurrency and also commented on the fact that Metaverse could have brought a revolutionary change till now as it is very valuable but has not been able to recognise its potential of it yet. But ChatGPT can bring a complete revolution to the IT industry and in the future, AI will be the changing agent.
