Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the company that owns ChatGPT, expressed concern that AI chatbots may “eliminate a lot of current occupations” and that artificial intelligence technology could fundamentally alter society as we know it.
He thinks it poses genuine risks but also has potential to be “the greatest technology that humanity has yet invented” and vastly enhance our quality of life. “We’ve got to be careful here. I think people should be happy that we are a little bit scared of this,” he said.
When questioned why he was “scared” about starting his company, he responded that if he wasn’t, “you should either not believe me or be extremely unhappy that I’m in this profession.”

“It is true that many current jobs will be lost as a result. Better ones can be created by us. The main justification for developing AI is that it will have a positive impact on our lives, improve them, and have other positive effects, ” said the CEO of OpenAI.
“There will need to be changes in education. But it has happened numerous times before, thanks to technology. When we first used calculators, our approach to teaching arithmetic and the topics we assessed students on completely changed.”
In addition, according to the reports, Altman and his team want users to see ChatGPT as a “co-pilot” who can assist them in any profession, such as writing difficult computer code or resolving issues.
