Narayana Murthy Unfazed By ChatGPT, Says Nothing Can Beat Human Mind


Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy is not worried about the impact of AI chatbots such as ChatGPT on human jobs, stating that the human mind is the “most powerful imagination machine.” Murthy noted that while ChatGPT is an excellent tool for knowledge generation and certain tasks, it cannot replace human creativity and differentiation. He also drew parallels with edtech company BYJU’S’ co-founder, who recently stated that ChatGPT could reduce the burden of mundane tasks and increase productivity. The emergence of AI technologies such as ChatGPT and GPT-4 has stirred a massive debate globally, with many advocacy groups calling for a stop on technologies stronger than GPT-4 for at least six months.

However, the Indian government has stated that it is not looking to regulate the AI space, though it acknowledges ethical concerns and risks associated with AI technology.The emergence of AI technologies such as ChatGPT and GPT-4 in India has sparked a debate on the regulation and effective utilization of AI. In fact, earlier this month, Sridhar Vembu, the co-founder of Zoho Corporation, wrote an open letter to the Indian government calling for the building of a global consensus on regulating AI. In the letter, Vembu raised concerns about the potential disruption of the existing social order due to the adoption of new technologies without proper guardrails. He also argued that AI could put millions of jobs at risk overnight and that the technology could have catastrophic consequences for humanity if not used properly. The Indian government has not yet announced any specific regulations for AI, but there are ongoing discussions and debates on the topic among experts and industry players.
