Nvidia CEO says AI will be able to pass any human exam in five years – N.F Times


 

New Delhi: Nvidia, one of the largest chipmakers in the world, played a crucial role in the development of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which utilised thousands of Nvidia GPUs. The company is time and again making headlines for its commitment towards AI and its CEO, Jensen Huang, has often talked about how AI will shape the future. Recently, the Nvidia CEO was in the limelight for saying that everybody will be a programmer with AI in future and there will be no need to learn coding. Now, Huang is once again in news for saying that in five years, AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) is likely to be here.

The Nvidia chief recently said that artificial general intelligence (AGI) might be achievable in as little as five years, depending on how it’s defined. Speaking at an economic forum at Stanford University, Huang explained that if AGI is defined as the ability to pass human tests, it could happen soon. He expressed confidence that in five years, AI could excel in various tests presented by the computer science industry.

“If I gave an AI … every single test that you can possibly imagine, you make that list of tests and put it in front of the computer science industry, and I’m guessing in five years time, we’ll do well on every single one,” he said as per a Reuters report.

Presently, AI can already pass some tests like legal bar exams but it struggles when it comes to handle specialised tests. Huang, however, added that the technology will be able to handle all exams within five years.

With that being said, Huang acknowledged that AGI might be further away based on different definitions, as scientists still grapple with understanding how human minds function. He also talked about the difficulty for engineers to achieve this goal without clear definitions.

AGI, or Artificial General Intelligence, can be best described as a concept where machines are able to understand the world as much as humans do and act on their own.
