NVIDIA: Crypto "Doesn't Bring Anything Useful"

An interview on The Guardian talks tech with Michael Kagan, the chief technology officer at NVIDIA. The headline quote from the story is Kagan's assertion that cryptocurrencies do not "bring anything useful for society," despite how crypto-driven demand for NVIDIA GPUs has done wonders for the company's bottom line for years. In contrast, he speaks positively about ChatGPT, saying AI is actually useful:
The first version ChatGPT was trained on a supercomputer made up of about 10,000 Nvidia graphics cards.

“All this crypto stuff, it needed parallel processing, and [Nvidia] is the best, so people just programmed it to use for this purpose. They bought a lot of stuff, and then eventually it collapsed, because it doesn’t bring anything useful for society. AI does,” Kagan told the Guardian.

“With ChatGPT, everybody can now create his own machine, his own programme: you just tell it what to do, and it will. And if it doesn’t work the way you want it to, you tell it ‘I want something different’.”

So ChatGPT... it seems to aggregate the interweb and provides a single answer as opposed to say a Google search that provides a list of multiple "answers". Is the single answer correct? It seems like a step back to me? Until it becomes conscious and I can have a meaningful relationship with it, it is just another search engine to me. Like having a PA do a Google search and compile the info into a useful report.



It can save time in starting a big search, but don't think about it as a search tool. Think of it as a content creation tool. It's free to try (the Bing one is better than the Google one.) Ask it to write you a poem, or a play starring two of your favorite characters from something.
And why would you want a meaningful relationship with a tool?
