😺 How to survive the AI revolution

PLUS: AI is catching up to humans FAST...

Welcome, humans.

We’re developing AI training for teams like yours on how to adopt AI in your jobs. We need your input—what topics, roles, and industries should we focus on?

Here’s what you need to know about AI today:

  • Sam Altman predicts that ChatGPT will continue to improve significantly.

  • We've outlined a three-step guide to make your company "AI forward."

  • 36% of people think AI will replace their current job in the next 5 years.

  • Mistral is aiming to secure "hundreds of millions of dollars" at a $5B valuation.

Sam Altman on how to stay relevant in the AI revolution.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman shared important advice for startups and enterprises: assume ChatGPT will get much better from here on out.

For startups, this translates to building something that won’t be made obsolete by a better ChatGPT. Otherwise, ChatGPT-5 will “steamroll” you (in Uncle Sam’s own words).

For enterprises, it's about crafting your AI strategy with GPT-5/6/7 in mind, and continuously exploring the latest models and tools.

Sam shared another tip on his 20VC podcast appearance: start deploying AI across your company NOW, even if its immediate application seems unclear.

Think of it as mining for gold: the initial ROI may be murky, but you need to excavate with the tools available to discover what AI can do (trust us, it’s a lot).

Then, assess its impact on speed, quality, creativity, and employee productivity—not just on cost savings.

Altman and OpenAI COO Brad Lightcap shared a bunch of insights on how businesses can stay ahead of the AI era—check out their full interview here:

AI vs. humans.

When historians look back on AI, they’ll pinpoint 2023 as THE YEAR when AI caught up to human IQ in many areas.

2023 was the year ChatGPT-4 passed the Bar Exam, the US Medical Licensing Exam, and the GRE.

And according to Stanford 2023 AI Index, a 500-page report tracking 2023’s global AI trends, AI language models reached human-level performance (or near) on many important benchmarks in 2023, including:

  • reading comprehension.

  • visual reasoning.

  • competition-level mathematics.


Just because AI matches human smarts in various fields doesn't mean it'll immediately replace us (check out our rebuttal to John Stewart’s automation doom-and-gloom).

Also from the AI Index: 36% of people believe AI will replace their current job in the next 5 years. That’s high!

Thursday Trivia.

Products often look better in ads than in real life (side-eye at Taco Bell). AI-generated product specs will only amplify this effect.

One glance, everyone knows the rules: one OliPop image used CreatorKit’s AI background, and the other is real.

Which is which?
