Although ChatGPT is Under a Year Old, an Expert Believes the AI Model is Reaching its Peak

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) has recently become a hot topic. Companies like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Microsoft’s Bing, and Google’s upcoming Bard have captured the attention of investors and the public alike. However, according to Douglas Rushkoff, a media theory and digital economics professor at the City University of New York, Queens College, the current state of AI is just the tip of the iceberg.

What the Expert said?

In a recent interview for Yahoo Finance, Rushkoff revealed that he believes that the current AI software is already at its peak, and the AI that we’ll see in the future will be far more advanced. He notes that most companies are only developing small apps on top of existing AI platforms, such as OpenAI with Musk and Altman, Google’s Deepmind, or Facebook’s META AI. While these are real AI platforms, Rushkoff believes that they represent only first-generation AI.

Next Generation AI: when and how?

Looking to the future, Rushkoff expects the development of more advanced AI, which uses a more sophisticated model than the one-to-one model currently in use. The present AI is fed data from the internet to improve its capabilities. Rushkoff clarifies that when someone claims that a particular AI is two years ahead of a rival platform, it means that the former has been trained for two years, while the latter is just getting started.


In summary, while generative AI is currently a hot topic, the real potential of AI lies in the future. Rushkoff’s insights suggest that we’re only at the beginning of what AI can accomplish, and the advancements we’ll see in the coming years will be remarkable. From marketing to applying AI in investing, we will certainly witness a lot of developments in the next 2 years.
