Why ChatGPT Makes Me Hopeful—Not Worried—For The Future Of College And Careers
The AI revolution is here, and we should all be terrified.
That has been the implication, at least, in all the excited coverage about ChatGPT, the surprisingly articulate chatbot released as a public prototype a few months back. Millions of people had fun entering prompts and seeing what response the chatbot returned (and, presumably, providing valuable training and data to its creators along the way). And a seemingly equal number predicted that this new milestone in artificial intelligence signals the end of industries, of careers, of even the entire educational enterprise. Worse, the late-January announcement that Microsoft invested $10 billion in OpenAI, ChatGPT’s creator, was hailed as proof that this software will engender a wholescale transformation of our society.
