“I do think that the OpenAI DevDay is a kind of historic moment. A lot of puzzle pieces/building blocks got put together. However, it’s easy to have a negative view of the situation: “aLL ApPs ArE DeAD”, every kid can do everything in 5 minutes now, and so on. But you can also adopt a positive view: There are now infinite possibilities to create value in an AI-powered world. I prefer the positive one and I’m very excited about the next years. A new paradigm is just getting started.”
