We have heard the recent news about the advances in Artificial Intelligence, the CHAT GPT, but the media has not talked about the woman behind this innovative technological tool
Mira Murati, originally from North America, with origins from India, graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Dartmouth College, she has a career that you will be surprised to learn about:
- • She Worked at the French aerospace company Zodiac Aerospace
- • At Tesla, she was a product manager for the Model X vehicle.
- • At Leap motion, she held the position of Vice President of Product and Engineering.
She is currently the Chief Technology officer of OpenAI, the company that was founded in 2015 by a group of Silicon Valley investors, including Elon Musk as co-chairman and also Peter Thiel, with whom she founded PayPal, Sam Altman, director of the accelerator Y Combinator, promoter of companies such as Airbnb or Dropbox and who is currently the CEO of Open AI; Jessica Livingston, Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, and Greg Brockman, who contributed $1 billion to assemble a group of top AI researchers and linked them to a nonprofit test lab to investigate new proposals in artificial intelligence, which with time has become a company valued in millions of dollars.
Mira Murati is the CTO of OpenAI and announced the launch of CHATGpt, which is described as a natural language system, the first in technological history that allows for mass use.
In her statements, she states that this new technological option can represent a great opportunity, particularly in education, but that she considers it vital that governments create regulations, measures, and restrictions on the use and management of artificial intelligence, to avoid consequences that could become harmful and uncontrollable at some point. For this, joint working groups should be formed with specialists in the area of philosophy, humanists, creatives, people dedicated to artistic expression, and social scientists to form a dynamic of collective participation and elucidate how to link human values.
In particular, it refers to this chatbot, based on the GPT-3.5 model, autoregressive, which offers very advanced possibilities to maintain a fluid and natural conversation, with more than 175 million parameters and a huge amount of data, which, when interacting with humans, collects more information, which it uses to fuel its response capabilities.
When asked directly how it describes itself, CHATGpt replies: “I am a large language model trained by OpenAI. My goal is to help people find answers to their questions and provide accurate and verifiable information. My ability to process and understand natural language allows me to answer questions on a wide variety of topics, from science and technology to history and culture. I can also help people write texts, provide suggestions, and correct grammatical errors”.
“Although I am a virtual entity, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience that I can share. I intend to be a useful and educational tool for all those who ask me for help. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions or need help with anything. I am here to help you”.
For The Woman Post, it is very important to make known these amazing women, like Mira, who handle exciting issues with such global impact and oversee these impressive advances that revolutionize how we relate to technology in many ways.
However, not everyone receives AI positively, since there are conflicting opinions, uncertainties, and fears regarding the scope that they may have and the extent to which they can be controlled.
