Bill Gates Speaks: AI in the Age of Corporate Control

Listen here.

As corporations vie for AI dominance, ethical considerations must be prioritized to ensure the technology benefits humanity as a whole

Bill Speaks about AI in his article, "The Age of AI has begun"

"I’ve been thinking a lot about how AI can reduce some of the world’s worst inequities."

"The first time was in 1980 when I was introduced to a graphical user interface—the forerunner of every modern operating system, including Windows."

Bill wants AI to 'help' mitigate climate change and social and political inequities. (as long as he gets to define 'climate change', 'social', and 'politics')

"The next generation of tools will be much more efficient, and they’ll be able to predict side effects and figure out dosing levels. One of the Gates Foundation’s priorities in AI is to make sure these tools are used for the health problems that affect the poorest people in the world, including AIDS, TB, and malaria."

I am not a fanboy of Microsoft, and I think the entire Windows realm is a cluster - I still get the blue-screen-of-death and there are just too many opportunities for security snafus.

The company is part of the dogmatic, hierarchical constructs of the past but - every business in the world uses MS products. It is a defacto standard and thereby dangerous.

Unfortunately, it may be too late.

Here is a co-written piece.  Me and GPT.


AI in the Hands of Giants: The Risks of Corporate Monopolies in Artificial Intelligence

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to revolutionize industries and change the way we live and work, concerns are rising over the influence big corporations like Microsoft have in managing access and bias of AI applications such as ChatGPT and Copilot. While Bill Gates, envisions a future where AI reduces global inequities and advances human progress, the unchecked power of these tech giants could have unintended consequences.

One concern is the potential monopolization of AI development by companies like Microsoft. As they continue to invest in and develop cutting-edge AI technologies, smaller companies, and independent developers may struggle to compete, resulting in reduced innovation and a market controlled by a few dominant players. This monopolistic environment could limit access to AI resources and technologies, making it more challenging for underprivileged communities to benefit from AI advancements.

The control exerted by companies like Microsoft over AI applications poses a risk to free speech and the diverse perspectives that AI could offer. By implementing ethical AI guardrails and controlling the development and access to AI technologies, these corporations hold the power to determine what AI can and cannot do, potentially censoring certain opinions or ideas. This stifles creativity and limits the range of perspectives that AI brings to various industries.

AI technologies like ChatGPT and Copilot offer immense potential to revolutionize various sectors, but the unchecked power of big corporations like Microsoft poses significant risks. To truly harness AI's potential for the betterment of society, it is essential to challenge the dominance of these corporate giants and foster a more open and collaborative approach to AI development that benefits everyone.

Search question: What are the risks of corporate monopolies in AI development, and how can we foster a more open and collaborative approach to AI that benefits everyone?

Suggested song: "Power" by Kanye West ft. Dwele. This song touches on the themes of power, control, and the dangers that come with it. It could serve as a fitting soundtrack for the potential risks of corporate monopolies in AI development.
