Transcript:Can the pace of change continue for AI? | Ask BENlabs

“Can the pace of change that we experienced in 2023 continue?” is a really difficult problem to answer. Mostly because, if you’d asked will the pace of change that we experienced in 2022 continue, I would have said yes, up until about September, November of that year. So all bets are off.

Interestingly, some people who are very much in the know, Mr Gates has also recently come out and said he thinks that we are approaching a Maxima in terms of what these large language models are capable of doing, at the same time you have leaks coming out of open AI talking about Q* and these amazing algorithms that could start that that whole flywheel of innovation and of technical exploration all over again. So I simply don’t know.

I hope we’re not at the end of a cycle. I hope we’re just at the very beginning because I think there’s huge potential here if we’re able to leverage it properly.
