“We need to be careful here,” OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said in an interview Thursday.
He explained that this is because the technology itself is very powerful and can be dangerous.

Altman also spoke about the impact of AI-powered chatbots on education and whether it will “increase student laziness.”

Altman argued that these benefits extend beyond education.
“We can have it in any profession and have a much higher quality of life, similar to the standard of living,” Altman was quoted as saying. You can also get new things that you can’t even imagine today, and that’s the promise.”
But ChatGPT has another worrisome potential, Altman warned, saying, “We have a lot of concerns about authoritarian governments developing and using it.” doing.
