Despite artificial intelligence improving and robots potentially being able to replace certain jobs or complete certain tasks in the future, human beings will still have the sole capacity for the content behind them, Dr. Michio Kaku told Newsmax on Tuesday.
"At first, when you hear about the story that these chatbots can replace lawyers, they can replace doctors, they can write term papers for university students, you say to yourself, 'my God, it's all over for humans,'" Kaku, a professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York, told "Eric Bolling The Balance."
"But then we begin to realize that, no. See, it turns out that lawyers that use chatbots will replace lawyers that don't use chatbots," he continued. "So it will replace certain kinds of jobs. But the content, that creativity, the idea, the engine, will be reserved for human beings."
Kaku and host Eric Bolling were referencing ChatGPT, a model from artificial intelligence research and deployment company OpenAI that specializes in conversation.
According to the company's website, ChatGPT "interacts in a conversational way. The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests."
"In other words, humans have to be creative," Kaku continued. "They have to come up with the idea, and then a chat bot will put the idea into a nice language, whatever form you want, but somebody has to tell the chat bot what to do. That's where the human is still the ruler of the roost."
