The developers behind ChatGPT, OpenAI, including CEO Sam Altman, expressed their concern in a blogpost on Monday, that artificial intelligence (AI) could surpass the "expert skill level" of humans in various domains within the next 10 years, leading to the emergence of "superintelligence" that outperforms other powerful technologies. OpenAI officials stated, "Superintelligence will be more powerful than any other technology humanity has had to grapple with in the past." They further emphasized the importance of managing risks associated with this development in order to achieve a significantly more prosperous future. Business Insider reported.

The introduction of ChatGPT and similar generative AI tools has raised concerns among industry leaders regarding the potential disruption to society, including job displacement, the spread of misinformation, and an increase in criminal activities. This has led to intensified competition between major companies like Microsoft and Google, as they engage in an AI arms race.
