“Generative AI is just a phase. The next stage will be interactive artificial intelligence,” said Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind.
Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind, believes that “generative artificial intelligence is just a phase” – he shared this opinion in an interview for MIT Technology Review published on Friday. “The next thing is interactive artificial intelligence: bots that can perform tasks assigned to them by referencing other software and other people,” said Suleyman, who is now co-founder and CEO of a new AI startup, Inflection AI.
Stand-alone artificial intelligence
Suleyman said interactive AI could be more dynamic and take action on its own if given permission – as opposed to what he described as today’s “static” technology. “It’s a very, very profound moment in the history of technology that I think a lot of people underestimate,” he added.
He also stated that within the next five years, everyone will be able to have AI assistants. His company, Inflection AI, launched the Pi chatbot in May as a ChatGPT rival focused on personal advice and conversation. For context, we are currently seeing the development of generative AI tools that go beyond the chat interface popularized by ChatGPT.
Boom in the AI market
According to investors, the next wave of AI startups will enable developers to build applications using AI models and integrate them with external data sources.
ChatGPT creator OpenAI also launched a code interpreter feature for its chatbot in July, prompting Wharton professor Ethan Mollick to say it’s “the strongest argument yet for a future in which AI is a valuable companion in sophisticated knowledge work “.
