  • Sam Altman admitted he’s “a little bit scared” of OpenAI’s ChatGPT creation.
  • The CEO told ABC News that people should “not trust me” if he said he wasn’t concerned about it.
  • He also said artificial intelligence will take over many jobs, but could lead to “much better” ones. 

The CEO of OpenAI admitted he’s “a little bit scared” of his ChatGPT creation and warned that it could “eliminate” many jobs.

In an interview with ABC News on Thursday, Sam Altman said that “people should be happy” that the company was “a little bit scared” of the potential of artificial intelligence.

“I think if I said I were not, you should either not trust me, or be very unhappy I’m in this job,” he said.

Altman also said artificial intelligence could replace many jobs, but that it could also lead to “much better ones”.

“The reason to develop AI at all, in terms of impact on our lives and improving our lives and upside, this will be the greatest technology humanity has yet developed,” he said.

The 37-year-old told ABC that he’s in “regular contact” with government officials and said regulators and society should be involved with ChatGPT’s rollout. Feedback could help curb any negative outcomes from its widespread use.

The entrepreneur warned last month in a series of tweets that the world may not be “that far from potentially scary” artificial intelligence. Altman expressed support for regulating AI in the tweets and said rules were “critical,” and that society needed time to adjust to “something so big.”

OpenAI this week unveiled GPT-4, its latest ChatGPT model, which Altman described as “less biased” and “more creative” than earlier versions. It’s only available to users who pay for its Plus subscription.

The latest version is capable of processing image prompts, is said to be more accurate than other versions, and users can have lengthier conversations with it.

The OpenAI chief said on Tuesday that it can pass the bar exam for lawyers and is capable of scoring “a 5 on several AP exams”. It is already being used by teachers to help generate lesson plans and quizzes for students.

OpenAI didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider, made outside normal working hours.
