Sam Altman on AI:

The fundamental thing about these models is not that they memorize a lot of data.

I so wish everyone who claims “plagiarism” understood this. If they did, they would finally understand the insane levels of creativity this technology can unlock for the individual.

The thing people like about the GPT model is not fundamentally that it has or that it knows particular knowledge, there better ways to find that. It’s that it has this larval reasoning capacity and that’s going to get better and better. That’s what this is going to be about.
