The advent and adoption of Chat GPT has been a watershed moment in the advancement of artificial intelligence. But with it comes serious concerns about the potential misuse or abuse of such powerful technologies. We need to ensure that AI is used ethically and responsibly. Organizations are only now beginning to consider the implications of its usage.
What sets Chat GPT apart from other AI applications? The key lies in its ability to interpret questions better, as well as its capability for understanding context and user preferences more effectively. If users combine their knowledge with intelligence by asking thoughtful, informed questions—ones that take into account all relevant factors—they can expect even more accurate and compelling results from their AI-enabled conversations. This combination of knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom is what the late Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman could have meant when he said, “Knowledge is having the right answers. Intelligence is asking the right questions. Wisdom is knowing when to ask the right questions.”
That is the challenge we face today in projecting AI’s impact into the future—for good and evil. It’s a daunting one, and it will require great wisdom on the part of developers, stakeholders, and policymakers alike. But if we can collectively bring together knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom in making sure AI applications are used responsibly, there’s no limit to what good they can do for us all. That’s how we unlock the true power of AI. With knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom guiding its development and deployment, we can make sure our AI applications remain virtuous and beneficial to humanity—just as Feynman predicted. Together we can unlock its full potential for good. And that is something worth striving for. That is the true power of humans with AI.
