By your side, Amazon is not concerned and is committed to investment. In this sense, Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazonhas stated that AI technology is key to the company’s future and has asserted that great AI-powered language models will be the core upon which Amazon will innovate in all areas of the business for decades.
“Your personal assistant will read the things you don’t have time to read”, predicts Bill Gates. The race for this type of technology is the one that will determine the company that dominates the paradigm of artificial intelligence. “Whoever wins in this sector will have the big win, you will never go to a search site again, you will never go to a productivity site again, you will never go to Amazon again.”.
Yes ok, It is unclear when this AI personal assistant will be fully developed.. Gates mentions that consumers might have to wait a while before it becomes available. Meanwhile, organizations will continue to incorporate existing AI technologies into their products.
The advances will be dizzying, “faster than we experienced after the advancement of the microprocessor”, declared Bill Gates. “We are facing a change as profound as the arrival of personal computers”.
