Sam Altman: This is what I learned from DALL-E 2

Sam Altman, OpenAI’s CEO, has been at the heart of the San Francisco-based firm since co-founding it with Elon Musk and others in 2015. His vision for the future of AI and how to get there has shaped not only what OpenAI does, but also the direction in which AI research is heading in general.

“And finally, you know, we just wanted to use DALL-E 2 to educate the world that we are actually going to do it—we’re actually going to make powerful AI that understands the world like a human does, that can do useful things for you like a human can. We want to educate people about what’s coming so that we can participate in what will be a very hard societal conversation.”
