 ChatGPT Creator Sam Altman Visits IE University; How One University Embraces the Latest Technological Revolution

AI has taken the world by storm in the past few months, as projects such as ChatGPT have opened the doors for how we generate and interact with information. With a simple prompt, ChatGPT sifts through the internet for sources to reference as it responds to your prompt in a human-like manner. Students are learning how to use AI tools, like ChatGPT, ethically with their studies, finding valuable research sources, generating test practice questions, and exploring new ideas.

With artificial intelligence rapidly evolving and gaining a foothold in educational institutions, it’s up to schools to provide students with the tools to develop critical thinking so that AI will be a supplemental part of a student’s education. Chat GPT’s creator, Sam Altman, met with IE University students to discuss the challenges and opportunities of AI.

ChatGPT creator discusses future of AI with IE University students

Students at IE University had the opportunity to participate in a panel with Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI and creator of ChatGPT, and discuss technology’s role in driving humanity forward. The event was part of The Next 50, an initiative at IE University to envision what society will face in the next few decades and prepare for the potential challenges that we’ll experience.

Altman says, “if we develop better tools, we will build a better future.” However, he also insisted on the need to regulate AI to reduce risks — which is exactly what we’re doing at IE University.
