Microsoft CEO not happy with OpenAI-ScarJo Scandal


Recently, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella voiced his concerns about artificial intelligence (AI) becoming more human.

Major investor and close partner of OpenAI, Satya Nadella, expressed disapproval of the practice of giving AI human characteristics by saying, “I don’t like anthropomorphizing AI.” In an unexpected interview with Bloomberg, he said, “I kind of believe it’s a tool.”

He continued by highlighting the differences between artificial intelligence (AI) and human intellect, implying that although AI may be intelligent, it differs from human intelligence in certain important ways. In order to better convey the distinctive character of this technology, Nadella suggested renaming it “different intelligence” in place of the derogatory phrase “artificial intelligence.”

Though there isn’t any sign of conflict between Microsoft and OpenAI, Nadella’s comments might be a reflection of continuing discussions among the machine learning scientists and engineers at both firms. These discussions are especially pertinent now that more people are using sophisticated voice assistants, such as the one that used Scarlett Johansson’s voice, which raises moral concerns about privacy and permission.

With the development of technology, there has been a noted propensity to humanize AI. For example, Blake Lemoine, a Google engineer, suffered backlash after he implied that Google’s AI tool LaMDA had sentience. In a similar vein, events such as the Tay chatbot’s racist outburst on Twitter (now X) in 2016 underscore the dangers of considering, as it were a human, in everyday situations.

Nadella may have said that AI should be seen as a tool, but the tendency of humanizing AI is still present. Emotional bonds are being formed between humans and AI more frequently, whether they are looking for company or seeing a future when AI partnerships would develop.

As discussions over the feasibility of attaining Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) persist, the pressing issue is how to handle moral dilemmas and guarantee ethical advancements in AI. Not only should the emphasis be on humanizing AI, but also on assessing its possible effects, particularly with regard to its ability to replace human labor, ranging from warehouse workers to voice assistants akin to Scarlett Johansson.
