AI scientist documentary – level 1

07-11-2023 07:00

Filmmaker Tonje Hessen Schei makes a documentary about Ilya Sutskever. The man is an important scientist. He creates ChatGPT. The documentary is called iHuman.

In several interviews, Sutskever talks about his ideas and what he wants. He talks with the filmmaker from 2016 to 2019. This is the time when he is making the chat model. The two men discuss AI and its impact. Ilya wants a smart computer that can do jobs better than people. He also asks if the smart computer competition is good or bad for people.

Today, people talk about AI’s good and bad sides. Nobody knows what will happen with AI in the future. This is what worries many people.

Difficult words: documentary (a film which reports on something what really happens), impact (effect), competition (when someone wants to be better than the others).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think Ilya Sutskever's vision for the future of AI is?
