Owner of ChatGPT could be worth $29 billion, says Wall Street Journal WSJ
OPENAI – The research laboratory is behind the viral chatbot (ChatGPT) which uses artificial intelligence to do all of the user – with investors for a tour that can assess the company of $ 29 billion. Note – 2x is larger than the last private tour – it will make OpenAi one of the most precious startups in the United States, although it does not yet generate a lot of income.
According to the Wall Street Journal, which directly announced the news, the arrest is evaluated by the Thrive Capital and Founders fund, the investment capital administrators. Both can invest more than $ 300 million at the start of a secondary tour, leaving employees and investors.
OPENAI is the company behind Chatgpt, which is a chatbot that uses artificial intelligence to imitate human conversation according to user questions and requests, and answer thousands of questions. According to the company, “the coordination of the dialogue makes it possible to answer follow -up questions, to recognize their errors, to question the incorrect hypotheses and to reject inappropriate requests”.
Chatbot made a virus because of his very precise responses on the most varied subjects. It also responds to many different requests from users, such as writing a poem on a specific subject, writing a thesis on a complex subject or even the simulation of a conversation between adolescents on any subject.
Openai also invented Dall E-2, which uses artificial intelligence to create very realistic paintings and illustrations based on user demands. This type of tool has acquired a bad reputation after a work of art created by Amnesty International won a technical competition in Colorado. (In this case, the work was created by the competitor of Dall E-2 called Midjourney).
Openai was born in 2015 as a government organization in order to conduct research in the field of artificial intelligence which could benefit humanity. Initially, the Foundation was funded by names such as Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, the founder of Linkedin, Sam Altman, the former combinator.
The company underwent a relevant transformation in 2019, when it took over and created an arm to earn money to finance the mathematical force necessary to form algorithms. Openai was one of the first companies in this market to decide to issue its tools for the general public. Google, for example, avoids the delivery of artificial intelligence solutions in part through moral concerns.
Although Openai first has a more fun advantage than practice, industrial experts think that in the future, it can be a substitute linked to current search engines like Google and Bing Microsoft. No wonder Microsoft has already invested a billion dollars in Openai and has gained the right to be the partner to market new technologies for services such as Bing and Microsoft Design.
According to WSJ, Microsoft will also be in advanced conversations to increase his investment in the company. Openai’s objective is, in the future, to achieve what IA researchers call “artificial general intelligence”, a technique capable of completely imitating human intelligence and capacities.
Altman has already declared in certain interviews that OpenAi tools can transform technology in the same way as the invention of smartphones.
