The software giant Microsoft has become the most valuable company in the world thanks to its smart bets and bold investments in AI. But Satya Nadella, the company’s usually quiet CEO, couldn’t help but poke fun at the rest of the business.
“Today we have the best model…” “GPT4 is better now, after all the fuss, a year later,” Nadella said at a company event in Mumbai on Wednesday. “We are waiting for the other teams to come in.” It will get here, I’m sure, but the truth is that we have the best LLM out there.
A rare dose of reality check for Nadella came as he pitched Microsoft’s growing list of AI products to the heads of some of India’s biggest companies. During his 35-minute keynote speech, Nadella urged companies to not only stay ahead of the competition but also start looking into how AI can be used to improve productivity and make goods better.
The Microsoft manager told India to focus on AI and step up its efforts. “AI is a new skill that will have an effect on GDP,” he said.
As someone who was born in India, Nadella said that the country has already become the second most popular place on GitHub for AI coders to find work. Last year, Puneet Chandok quit his top job at AWS India to lead Microsoft’s business in India and South Asia. He also said, “India is not just amazing anymore.” Also, you can trust us. India is beginning to have big dreams and acts on them as if their lives depend on it.
The company also said that by next year, it will help 2 million Indians in smaller areas and towns learn AI skills. “I hope that a consensus forms, because that’s what really helps the spread of this technology,” he said about the progress in government and the economy.
This is the first time I’ve felt like there is no gap between what’s going on in India and the rest of the world. Nadella also said, “The use cases here are so unique and are paving their own path.”
Nadella later said that Karya is one of these unique offerings. It is a “ethical data company” that makes datasets in many Indian languages to train AI models while giving people in rural areas jobs and schooling.
