Google AI co-founder predicts that everyone will have AI assistants within the next five years

It seems that we are right at the beginning of the AI revolution, as the controversial technology may become much more accessible in the years to come.

In an interview with CNBC, co-founder of DeepMind, Google’s AI division, Mustafa Suleyman said that everybody is going to have their own AI-powered personal assistants within the next five years as technology becomes cheaper and more widespread.

Particularly, the new CEO of Inflection AI, the tech startup behind an AI chatbot called Pi, stated that everybody will have access to an AI that ‘knows you,” is “super smart,” and “understands your personal history.”

He co-authored a book titled “The Coming Wave: Technology, Power, and the Twenty-first Century’s Greatest Dilemma” that documents the development of AI, even predicts that AI will be able to “preserve things in its working memory.” In succession, he states that technology can be helpful in making people’s lives a little bit easier.

With the continuous evolution of technology, Suleyman believes that the role of AI in people’s lives will not be just within personal assistance.

He said, “The way I see it is that in 5 years, everybody is gonna have their own ‘chief of staff.’” Similar to the duties of the chief of staff, he said that AI will “intimately know your personal information, be completely aligned with your interests, and help you manage and process all the information you need.

Since the release of ChatGPT last November, people have used the chatbot to develop codes, create marketing strategies, and generate lesson plans. Some in the workforce have used the chatbot to complete tasks at work without telling their bosses.

There are other tech leaders who see the potential in AI aside from Suleyman.

Cofounder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, wrote a seven-page letter on how AI is as fundamental as the creation of the internet and predicts that technology can help in making jobs in the healthcare field and teachers much easier.

The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, told investors through an earnings call early this year that technology has enormous potential to affect virtually everything we do at the iPhone maker.

Suleyman says it’s only a matter of time before everyone has access to the capabilities of AI.
