ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE | ChatGPT Has the Most Impact in Coding, Healthcare, and Education, Says CEO, Sam Altman

OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, says ChatGPT has shown the most promise for professionals in three distinct industries:

Healthcare, and


“Coding is probably the single area from a productivity gain we’re most excited about today. It’s massively deployed and at scaled usage, at this point,” Altman said during a recent episode of “Unconfuse Me,” a podcast hosted by Bill Gates.

“Healthcare and education are two things that are coming up that curve that we’re very excited about, too.”


According to Altman, ChatGPT, which is just one of many Artificial Intelligence tools that came into prominence in 2023, helps coders complete more work in less time, freeing them to think of more complex things.


“They can – at that higher level of abstraction, using more of their brainpower – they can now think of totally different things,” he said. “It’s like [how] going from punch cards to higher level languages didn’t just let us program a little faster, it let us do these qualitatively new things.”


When it comes to education artificial intelligence systems can assist educators in crafting curricula and tailoring lesson plans to meet the individual needs of students. Moreover, these AI systems can contribute to time efficiency among teachers by undertaking administrative responsibilities such as monitoring attendance and issuing automated reminders for assignments.

In healthcare, the chatbot has successfully cleared the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam. However, experts advise caution, noting that the system’s tendency for errors currently hinders widespread patient trust in the foreseeable future.

According to Bill Gates, some pharmaceutical companies are leveraging ChatGPT to automate specific aspects of the processes involved in the discovery and research of new drugs.


“The stuff that we’re seeing now is very exciting and wonderful, but I think it’s worth always putting it in context of this technology that, at least for the next five or ten years, will be on a very steep improvement curve,” Altman said.

“These are the stupidest the models will ever be.”
