Microsoft’s Satya Nadella Lauds India’s Digital Infrastructure Building Capability

ChatGPT and Dall-E Will Play Significant Roles In Future Of Workers, Says Satya Nadella

“Oh, don’t make me laugh, please. In Mumbai, I am the king of street food.” That was the clever response Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO of Microsoft Corp., received when he asked ChatGPT, an AI-powered chatbot, to create a play in which Delhi’s bhel puri and Mumbai’s favourite street food, the vada pav, would compete for supremacy.

India-born Nadella used the play to illustrate how AI models like ChatGPT and Dall-E, created by US firm OpenAI, are new “reasoning engines” that can aid knowledge workers, etc., in improving their performance. Nadella is on a four-day tour of India to meet the company’s customers and some government officials.

Large language model-based AI tools like ChatGPT and Dall-E will play increasingly essential roles in the future of work, according to Nadella, who was speaking to the media and a few customers in Mumbai. However, he continued, people must use these platforms properly and must take into account the “displacement (of employees and business models)” that they may bring about.

While such generative AI tools produced less than 1% of the global AI data sets in 2021, Nadella noted that by 2025, this might rise to 10% of all AI-generated data.

Generative models will produce the majority of the data in the future. A new thinking engine is currently starting to form. We will undoubtedly need to discuss this reasoning engine, including its appropriate uses, the displacements it will bring about, and other issues. But since technology could have a significant impact on our future, we should also consider how it can improve what we are doing right now, Nadella remarked.

“In the end, these tools will increase human productivity, inventiveness, and originality across a variety of tasks. It will be a golden age since the computer revolution changed the behaviour of many consumers and increased productivity for knowledge workers. What if, though, we could distribute that production more fairly? That is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting things to look forward to, and the best way to get there is through creating a strong data infrastructure,” he continued.

According to Nadella, India will be a key player in creating these AI-powered platforms. One aspect that is wonderful to observe is India’s leadership in digital public goods. When it comes to the thoughtful manner in which India is erecting its digital infrastructure, there is India, and then there is daylight,” he remarked, elaborating on the government’s initiatives.
