Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella believes that AI will redefine work and its good for humanity
Microsoft Chairman and CEO, Satya Nadella believes that the golden age of AI is “underway,” and that it will reshape work and business as we know it.
Nadella stated during a session at the World Economic Forum’s ongoing five-day annual meeting that technology will provide more and more ways to bring people together.
“Microsoft is enabling access to new AI tools like ChatGPT,” Nadella said in a WEF release on Wednesday (local time). “I see these technologies as co-pilots, assisting people to do more with less.”
ChatGPT, a cutting-edge chatbot, is capturing the world’s attention. In just five days after its recent launch, the new artificial intelligence site had 1 million users. It’s just one of a dozen AI-powered “apps” that are expected to transform human productivity and the future of work.
ChatGPT answers complex questions on a wide range of topics using short prompts and even writes lyrics and poetry.
During the session, he shared two anecdotes about recent GPT technology use cases. The first was about a Silicon Valley expert coder who increased their productivity by 80% by using the model to help them write better code faster.
The second case involved an Indian farmer who, despite only speaking a local dialect, was able to use a GPT interface to access an obscure government programme via the internet. Nadella also added that the short- and long-term opportunities are enormous.
In the future, he stated that Microsoft intends to be a leader in quantum computing. Microsoft has all of the components for a next-generation quantum computer. When asked about sustainability, Microsoft’s CEO stated that it is at the heart of the company. “By 2050, Microsoft aims to be carbon-negative rather than carbon-neutral.”
Cloud for Sustainability, which was released in 2022, brings together a growing set of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) capabilities across the Microsoft cloud portfolio as well as solutions from the firm’s global ecosystem.
