Adani, a ChatGPT user, claims that the race for AI will become as complex as the chip battle
Gautam Adani, the richest man in Asia, is addicted to ChatGPT, a tool that scours large quantities of information to produce natural-sounding language on nearly anything, including creating jokes, writing ads, debugging computer code, and even producing poems and essays. Adani wrote a reflection following his trip to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum. Adani's conglomerate has recently expanded beyond mines, ports, and power plants to include airports, data centres, and defence.
He stated on LinkedIn, "From a meetings perspective, this was likely my busiest WEF as I met over a dozen heads of state and several business leaders," discussing new geopolitical alliances, climate change, covert evangelism, and artificial intelligence. The theme of all sessions at the WEF was advances in AI, particularly generative AI.
Given ChatGPT's remarkable capabilities as well as its hilarious mistakes, he remarked, "the recent release of ChatGPT represents a pivotal moment in the democratisation of AI." He claimed that generative AI will have a significant impact and that the US's foresight in chip design and mass production helped to set the stage for modern warfare's use of guided and precise weaponry.
"Generative AI carries the same potential and hazards, and the race is already on," he added. China currently outnumbers the US in terms of the number of scholarly articles on AI that have received the most citations. Chinese researchers actually produced twice as many academic articles on AI in 2021 as their American counterparts.
He continued, "This is a race that will fast become as intricate and complicated as the existing silicon chip battle." OpenAI is creating a chatbot prototype called ChatGPT that uses AI. Users can ask the bot questions, and it will respond with pertinent, convincing subjects and replies. ChatGPT is made to look and sound like real conversations, and its responses seem remarkably human. When questioned, the bot can elaborate on ideas, remember what was stated previously in the dialogue, and even apologise when it makes a mistake.
Talking of the new geopolitical couplings and its implications, Adani said global alliances are now issue-based rather than allegiance-based. "A very interesting remark made by Saudi Arabia's Finance Minister that gave both China and the US 'very important' status highlights how fast geopolitical couplings are evolving," he said. "The past is no longer a predictor for the future, as no country wants to make just a single bet."
Each country is seeking its own form of self-reliance. While climate change remains the top priority and risk for the global community, it is clear that climate investments will be driven by the energy security agenda and self-interest, he said adding it was evident this year that the facade of just focusing on green energy has been blown away by the European energy crisis.
"While the climate warriors may remain tight-lipped, there is recognition that we need a pragmatic energy transition plan that includes fossil fuels to achieve inclusive growth," he said. "The US Inflation Reduction Act has prompted Europe to develop its own green package to prevent outbound migration of technology, money and expertise."
Adani said Europe's reactionary move is motivated more by concern for its own energy security and the protection of its industries than by a desire to steer the global green transition.
"In many ways, the divide between the US and Europe could not be more evident as both pursue their own national agendas while still claiming alignment. In my view, there is nothing wrong in doing so," he said. Also, it is increasingly evident that onshoring, self-reliance, energy independence, and building resilience in supply chains is as mandatory as is local job creation.
Although we might agree on this in theory, he said, "it is very impossible for a country or a company to divorce itself and become entirely self-reliant, therefore I am returning a little more uncertain about the state of globalisation as compared to when I arrived to Davos." It would take too much time and be exhausting.
In the long run, he added, "this may not necessarily be bad for our region of the world, as countries like India, Brazil, the Middle East, ASEAN, and Africa will all find opportunities to grow by filling trade gaps left by the decoupling." India, he claimed, may be the only major economy to show signs of improvement because of its fortunate location away from frozen slippery slopes.
"We had turned out in full force (at the WEF)," he said. "Our multi-vector, the non-partisan approach has ensured that we are well-respected and have become one of the leading voices batting for the emerging economies. The growing prominence was very visible during the forum, with widespread participation by Indian companies and government officials."
Be it the US, Japan, South Korea, or Singapore, nations that gained economic and geopolitical significance had their governments and corporations cooperating closely toward a shared vision. It's up to us to follow suit in order to guarantee that India owns the twenty-first century, he wrote.
"My country's representation at the World Economic Forum will continue to rise, even if I'm not sure how much of the pure white snow will disappear before the brown of the Swiss Alps is shown. Maybe we should start referring to the WEF in Davos as "the Indian Summer."
