2022 was a watershed year in evolving the way people interacted with Artificial Intelligence. DALLE-2 captured the imaginations of everyone in the world at a scale which would have made its namesake painter proud. ChatGPT wrote movie scripts, party planning ideas, code and explained millions of concepts to people without having to read 10 websites for understanding. In 4 months, the world found alternatives for Google search, photoshop, Stack Overflow, and script writing. I personally used some of these tools to get inspirations for pitch decks and feature sets for enterprise technologies and occasioned an interesting conversation between Shakespeare and Douglas Adams in the style of their characters.
This excitement goes beyond acceptance of new paradigms of search and creation. Proof of its popularity is evidenced by its incredible rate of adoption which till last count was about 100 Million monthly active users just on ChatGPT. The insanity compounds with the enormous flow of investments from Microsoft in Open AI with an aim to disrupt Google search. To keep pace with the new paradigm, Google has backed Anthropic as its own horse in the race.
