Sam Altman wows lawmakers at closed AI dinner: ‘Fantastic…forthcoming’ – CNBC

Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., whose district spans part of Silicon Valley, said Altman made two important points to members in the room. “One is that AI is a tool, not a creature,” he said. “This is something that is going to assist human beings not replace human beings. Second, that it will do tasks, not jobs. This is something that’s going to help people with the jobs they have, not displace those jobs. And so I think it’s been a sober conversation that’s helping members understand what the tool actually does and help refute some of the hype.”
