.. Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio called for a six-month pause in developing new AI tools. Gates stated that the proposed pause in AI chatbot development would not "solve the challenges."
According to Gates, the focus should be on effectively integrating AI technology into society. He finds it hard to understand how a pause could work globally with so many firms working on the technology.
"I don't think asking one particular group to pause solves the challenges," the billionaire said on Monday.
"Clearly, there are huge benefits to these things… what we need to do is identify the tricky areas," he noted.
In a recent op-ed titled "The Age of AI has begun" on "The Blog of Bill Gates," Gates outlined that the upcoming paradigm shift in technology is AI. Having been instrumental in developing personal computers several decades ago, the billionaire believes OpenAI's language generation AI tools will be at the forefront of the next technological revolution.
Gates has also emerged as a significant player in the AI technology race, as Microsoft, the company he founded, has pledged over $10 billion in funding to OpenAI.
