Sam AltmanCEO of Open AI, recently posted tweets trying to hint at how artificial intelligence could make the world a better place. And among the various hypotheses, he proposed a scenario in which AI will be able to provide medical indications to those who are in such an economic situation that they cannot claim health care.
“Adapting to a world deeply integrated with AI tools will likely happen fairly quickly. The benefits (and fun!) come with too many benefits. These tools will help us be more productive (I look forward to spending less time on emails!) and healthier (AI medical advisors for people who can’t afford treatment), smarter (students using ChatGPT to study) and more fun (AI memes lolol)”
he wrote on Twitter.
These tools will help us be more productive (can’t wait to spend less time on email!), healthier (AI medical consultants for people who can’t afford care), smarter (students using ChatGPT for use learn) and more entertaining (AI meme lol).

That an instrument should not be demonized a priori tout court no doubt and although AI could actually be valid tools for everyday productivity (we talked about it in this article: 24 hours with Microsoft Bing powered by ChatGPT Artificial Intelligence), perhaps with some caution it would be appropriate to suggest their use in “sensitive” areas, such as anything related to the health of the individual.
Of course, in the long term, it might be assumed that if AIs proved to be reliable and precise, they could also be used as medical tools, but Altman’s statements are probably a bit hasty in view of the blunders GPT chatAnd bing chat have shown themselves in the last few weeks.
However, Altman himself concedes that as excited as one may be about the speed of a transition, it is also understandable that society may need time to adjust to a change of this magnitude. The CEO of OpenAI underscores the importance of institutional awareness, the need for regulation and commitment to solving some key challenges.
“Institutions will need enough time to figure out what to do, and while current AI tools aren’t particularly scary, I think we’re not that far from potentially scary ones.” said Altman.
What do you think? Skynet closer than ever?
