The impact of the artificial intelligence in everyday life it is becoming clearer and more pronounced, so Bill Gates It has been warning about the progress of its development for a long time. In a new opportunity to speak to the world, the Software developer predicted the appearance of an AI that would change the way users behave and that would manage to eradicate currently popular tools, such as search engines or shopping portals.
In this sense, according to the tycoon, the AI assistant, which is not yet in development, will have the ability to understand a person’s needs and habits and will end the use of the web as we know it today.

And it is that the war to create the best tool powered by generative artificial intelligence does not stop adding technological giants, including Google with Bard, Microsoft with Bing and OpenAI with Chat GPT.
“You’ll never go to a search site again, you’ll never go to a productivity site again, you’ll never go to Amazon again”, Gates said during a San Francisco-based Goldman Sachs and SV Angel event on the topic of overwhelming AI growth. For this reason, he hastened to add: “The most important thing is who wins the personal assistant.”
Calling on which company will succeed in creating such an assistant, Gates said he would be utterly disappointed if Microsoft didn’t “step in” and that he is currently “impressed” with startups such as Inflection.AI, the one co-founded by the former executive. by DeepMing Mustafa Suleyman.
However, Bill Gates is not the only one who has the idea of creating a computer assistant based on artificial intelligence in his head, since several companies in the sector have worked on it, creating a kind of technological collaborator who can be ordered, from the use of voice or text, to perform tasks for them.

Just weeks earlier, in the middle of a talk at the ASU+GSV Summit in San Diego, Gates had asserted that the ability of AI is so important that, in the future, it may be on par with a human teacher. Specifically, the tycoon indicated that “artificial intelligence will reach that capacity to be as good a tutor as any human being.”
“If I take just the next 18 months, the AIs will come in as teacher assistants and give you feedback on writing. Then they will expand what we are capable of doing in mathematics. Our math bottleneck is more about how we fit into the overall system and how we get adoption of that teacher,” he said after noting that chatbots like Bard and ChatGPT boast “incredible fluency in reading and writing,” so that can be used in teaching processes so that students improve their reading.
He added, “At first, we’ll be very surprised at how he helps with reading, being a reading research assistant, and giving you feedback on writing.”
