Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates believes ChatGPT, a chatbot that gives strikingly human-like responses to user queries, is as significant as the invention of the internet, he told German business daily Handelsblatt in an interview published on Friday.
"Until now, artificial intelligence could read and write, but could not understand the content. The new programs like ChatGPT will make many office jobs more efficient by helping to write invoices or letters. This will change our world," he said, in comments published in German.
ChatGPT, developed by U.S. firm OpenAI and backed by Microsoft Corp, has been rated the fastest-growing consumer app in history. (Writing by Rachel More Editing by Paul Carrel)
