OpenAI is currently working on a tool that can accurately detect images produced by AI, with a claimed 99% accuracy. The Chief Technology Officer, Mira Murati, revealed during the Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live conference that the tool is in the testing phase and will be released to the public soon. The goal is for the tool to be reliable without leaving users with a sense of being monitored.
Although there are existing AI image detection tools, their accuracy is sometimes questionable.
OpenAI, being a prominent player in the generative AI field with programs like ChatGPT and DALL-E, is well-positioned to establish itself as an authority in AI image detection. However, there is no set release date for their tool yet.
OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman, spoke about the transformative effects of AI on the workforce. He emphasized that many professions will be eliminated, requiring society to rethink its approach. Altman stressed the need for people to have agency and influence in this widespread transition, stating that “we need to jointly be architects of the future.”
Venture capitalist and early supporter of OpenAI, Vinod Khosla, predicts that AI will be capable of performing about 80% of the tasks currently handled by 80% of existing jobs within the next decade.
He specifically mentioned professions like physicians and accountants as ones that could potentially be replaced, drawing parallels to the decline of agricultural jobs in the 20th century. Khosla believes that in 25 years, countries that incorporate these technologies may no longer require citizens to work for a living.
He also suggests the possibility of universal basic income to ensure a minimum standard of living, enabling individuals to pursue their interests and passions.
