Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind, believes that “generative AI is just a phase” – an opinion he expressed in an interview with MIT Technology Review published on Friday.
“What’s next is interactive AI: bots that can perform tasks you give them by asking other software and other people to do things,” said Suleyman, who is currently the co-founder and CEO of a new AI startup, Inflection AI, is.
Suleyman said interactive AI could be more dynamic and take actions on its own with permission, as opposed to what he described as “static” technology today.
“It’s a very, very profound moment in the history of technology that I think a lot of people underestimate,” he added.
Suleyman previously predicted that within the next five years everyone will be able to have AI assistants. His company, Inflection AI, launched its chatbot Pi in May as a rival to ChatGPT, focused on personal advice and conversation.
By comparison, we are currently witnessing the rise of generative AI tools that go beyond the chat interface popularized by ChatGPT in November.
Investors told Insider in April that the next wave of AI startups would allow developers to build applications using AI models and integrate them with external data sources.
ChatGPT creator OpenAI also introduced a code interpreter feature for its chatbot in July, prompting Wharton professor Ethan Mollick to say it was “the strongest argument yet for a future in which AI is a valuable companion to sophisticated people.” Knowledge work is”.
Suleyman’s comments come amid fears that the generative AI boom may be overstated.
According to web analytics firm Similarweb, web traffic to ChatGPT’s website fell for the third consecutive month in August.
And investors told the Wall Street Journal in August that translating the AI trend into effective businesses is harder than it seems – with generative AI tools Jasper and Synthesia seeing flat or declining user growth.
Suleyman and Inflection AI did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment sent outside regular business hours.
