In 1997, an artificial intelligence named Deep Blue defeated a world-champion chess player. In 2016, AlphaGo beat the world champion of Go. And now, in 2023, AI is set to outcompete artists, writers, and even programmers.
The rise of AI technology has been nothing but blistering in recent years. We have seen such exponential increases that many industries have suffered disruptions already. And in the coming years, we can expect to see many more industries get turned on their heads, unlike any other point in human history.
OpenAI is one of the leading AI researchers and the creator of ChatGPT, Dall-E, and Codex. Let’s discuss how this one company, with three programs, will change and disrupt many traditional industries.
ChatGPT by OpenAI
If you have been reading the news, you have likely already heard the waves made by ChatGPT. On the surface, it is simply a language model. All it is doing is predicting the most likely word that comes next in sequence.
But the results are astonishing. Users can ask ChatGPT complex questions and get valuable results. Aside from controversial topics and speculation, one can ask this chatbot anything.
Here are just a few examples of the things ChatGPT can do:
- hold lengthy conversations
- write speeches
- write formal letters
- summarize complex topics in simple terms
- tell stories
- write code
- debug code
- critique ideas
- tell original jokes
- solve math problems
This is only a tiny slice of what ChatGPT can do. In reality, the sky’s the limit. Many users have found clever, unique ways to leverage it for their bespoke purposes.
It would take many articles to discuss all the industries ChatGPT will likely disrupt. However, let’s discuss some of the main ones.
How to use OpenAI ?
To use OpenAi tools like chatGPT, Dall-e, codex etc.. you will first have to create an OpenAi account. You can do this by signing up here https://platform.openai.com/signup
You will need an email address and a phone number to verify your OpenAi account. In case of phone number you may use OpenAi phone verification service and complete the signup process.
When you think about it, search engines are incredibly inefficient. They succeed well at pulling helpful information according to a search query. However, it’s up to you to sift through that information and find the most valuable results.
ChatGPT bypasses the search altogether. You ask a question, and it answers.
The main issue with ChatGPT right now is that it cannot provide sources for what it says or distinguish what is true. It’s likely, though, that OpenAI will find ways to solve this problem shortly.
Search engines like Google and Bing are already building competitors to this. But we will likely see the concept of a search engine disappear and be replaced by an AI Oracle.
ChatGPT is a language model, so it only stands to reason that it will overtake language-based industries, such as blogs, newspapers, and reading-focused websites. Rather than pay a writer, companies can have the chatbot generate any text with the snap of their fingers.
There are limitations here since ChatGPT can only handle simple tasks now. Writers will still be necessary for many years to handle complex topics. However, we will likely see writing as a career decline in the coming years.
ChatGPT will boost productivity by leaps and bounds. Companies can create content on the fly and release it in a fraction of the time they used to. We may have a future where everyone gets unique content during website visits.
AI Assistants Of All Kinds
Many people are familiar with Google Assistant or Siri. These smartphone AI assistants can search for information, set reminders, and control smartphone devices. But generally speaking, they have significant limitations with what they can do.
ChatGPT and competitors like Bard may create AI assistants that are more like Jarvis from Ironman. That is AI assistants that can do anything.
This will be a boon not just for personal use but for corporations that need better customer service, digital receptionists, online chatbots–and more.
Dall-E by OpenAI
Dall-E has also made waves with the unveiling of its Dall-E 2 text-to-image generator. A user fills out a prompt describing the sort of image they want, and the AI generates it within seconds.
It’s difficult to produce art and takes a long time. This will massively disrupt the market for visual artists of all kinds.
Dall-E will change everything from graphic design to the film industry. It will allow for faster concept art creation and better iteration of any design. Companies can get the art they need on demand rather than wait for artists to complete it.
ChatGPT has many limitations due to how difficult it is to conceptualize language. However, these limitations are far less pronounced with Dall-E. AI is already very good at image generation, to the point where many artists may find themselves without a job.
Codex by OpenAI
While ChatGPT can write some code, Codex is the primary focus for anything code-related. Just like ChatGPT and Dall-E, it works on a prompt basis. Users detail the code or program they want, and the computer will spit it out.
Programming has always been a very complex line of work, in high demand and well compensated. It requires analytical thinking and tireless hours bent over a computer, writing and debugging code. Thanks to Codex, those days may long be gone.
Programming jobs will dry up in the thousands. Companies will likely only hire programmers to vet the code that Codex creates. It will take less time to develop new code and less time to squash bugs and build updates for programs and games.
This will likely give power to the consumer as well. They will be able to create their own programs with no knowledge of coding. This will create a great deal of competition since anyone can make their own program for anything.
Though, to be clear, we are a long way away from complete industry disruption. Just like ChatGPT, Codex will require many more years of polishing and fine-tuning.
The Rise of AI Is Here
OpenAI is just one company but has shocked the world with its ChatGPT, Dall-E, and Codex machine learning tools. Already, we are seeing jaw-dropping disruptions to industries that were once “safe” from AI. It’s likely that the future will hold further disruptions on a scale we can only begin to imagine.
