In his latest Forbes column, Radical Ventures Partner Rob Toews published his predictions for AI in 2023. Next year, Rob is anticipating GPT-4’s release, the normalization of self-driving, humanoid robot development, and a revolution in search. In his 2022 predictions retrospective, there were some misses and significant hits including the dominance of language AI and Toronto establishing itself as the most important AI hub in the world outside of Silicon Valley and China.
Here are the highlights of Rob’s 10 AI for 2023:
1) GPT-4 will be released in the next couple months—and yes, it will be a big deal.
2) We are going to start running out of data to train large language models.
3) For the first time, some members of the general public will begin using fully driverless cars as their day-to-day mode of transportation.
4) Midjourney will raise venture capital funding.
5) Search will change more in 2023 than it has since Google went mainstream in the early 2000s.
6) Efforts to develop humanoid robots will attract considerable attention, funding and talent. Several new humanoid robot initiatives will launch.
7) The concept of “LLMOps” will emerge as a trendy new version of MLOps.
8) The number of research projects that build on or cite AlphaFold will surge.
9) DeepMind, Google Brain, and/or OpenAI will undertake efforts to build a foundation model for robotics.
10) Many billions of dollars of new investment commitments will be announced to build chip manufacturing facilities in the United States as the U.S. makes contingency plans for Taiwan.
