Sam Altman: ‘Trial-and-error’ Approach to AI Could Unlock New Opportunities for Humanity

In Brief

Sam, the CEO of OpenAI, speaks with David Blundin, Lex Fridman, and John Werner about the transformative potential of AI for humanity.

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, believes that AI has the potential to help us do extraordinary things. He has employed a long-term, capital-intensive strategy to create new opportunities for AI. He believes that trial-and-error and careful observation of how users interact with the technology will be key to finding the right balance between AI and humans.

When OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman speaks about Artificial Intelligence (AI), the potential and possibilities for humanity come to mind. In a recent op-ed on the subject, he discussed the possibility of AI helping us do extraordinary things that were not previously possible, such as eradicating diseases or improving transportation networks.

When it comes to AI, Altman strongly believes that one of the greatest opportunities and breakthroughs lies in the power of authenticity and personalization. He believes that thoughtful attention to the user experience will pay off in the long run and help OpenAI remain competitive.

The customization of base models has been on the decline, as advancements in context engineering and prompt engineering have provided a great way to fit models to your data. To try to combat this, Sam has employed a long-term, capital-intensive strategy for OpenAI and is focusing on creating new opportunities for AI. The strategy is complex, difficult, and there is not much competition, giving Sam and OpenAI more room to explore the potential of AI.

Sam believes that the focus should move away from chasing big models and towards utilizing new opportunities that these models may provide. Trial-and-error as well as careful observation of how users interact with the technology will be key to finding the right balance between AI and humans.

He also wrote an open letter to call for the suspension of large-scale model training for six months—which he believes would help serve as a safety control tool. However, this only addresses part of the problem, and the external audit of OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology was actually carried out for more than six months.

One of Sam’s core values is that the appearance of an algorithm that can improve its own code does not have to lead to a singularity—human participation in a chain will still remain irreplaceable. What Sam believes is that these advancements in AI will provide more and more opportunities for people to shape and improve the world.

  • Sam Altman is an entrepreneur, investor, and programmer from the United States. He is the current CEO of OpenAI and a co-founder of Loopt. He was the president of Y Combinator and the CEO of Reddit for a short time. Altman invests in nuclear energy projects as well as technology firms.
