北京大学大纽约地区校友会举办第十五期“未名传承”线上讲座

2024-02-20

美东时间2023年12月12日晚,北京大学大纽约地区校友会成功举办第十五期“未名传承”线上讲座。本次活动通过Zoom和百度直播两个平台进行,吸引了世界各地近两千名观众参与。校友会邀请了两位杰出的校友投资人兼创业者——吴刚和吴天昊,围绕“生成式AI对软件及相关产业发展的影响”这一重磅议题展开深入探讨。

讲座伊始,主持人汤漪以一首温情的校友原创歌曲《四季未名湖》拉开了本次活动的序幕。汤漪随后详细介绍了此次讲座的核心议题,并向在座的观众展示了为本次活动倾注心力的志愿者团队。

吴刚博士作为第一位发言人,首先带领大家回顾了OpenAI的成长历程,详述了该公司从创立之初到面临转型挑战,再到近期董事会的重大变革。他借助黄仁勋的视角阐述了AGI的概念,并讨论了当训练数据规模达到惊人的1000亿时代所可能迎来的智能爆发现象。吴刚进一步分享了他对AGI未来走向的看法,特别是AGI如何渗透至软件开发的各个环节,从而极大地简化了开发流程,为开发者提供了前所未有的高效工具和方法。

吴刚还特别强调了“副驾驶”模式的兴起,这一模式象征着人类与AI之间的合作关系迈入了新纪元,AI不再仅仅是一种工具,而是变成了一个拥有丰富知识的合作伙伴。他还探讨了AI技术的范式转变,即AI主导的架构正逐步取代传统的人类主导开发模式。在谈及用户交互界面时,吴刚指出,从传统的命令行界面到图形界面,再到未来可能普及的聊天界面,这一演变无疑将为用户带来更加便捷的体验。总的来说,AI的介入不仅革新了软件开发的过程和工具,而且还为用户交互提供了更智能、更高效的方式,为技术的未来发展开辟了新的道路。

接着,吴天昊博士从法规合规,数据隐私保护,模型的安全性、准确性、可解读性,以及对硬件的要求等多个维度,分享了他对人工智能领域的深刻见解。他列举了人工智能在法律文件解读、数据库维护、数据校正等场景中的潜在应用,并强调对于AI创业团队而言,发现并解决问题是核心竞争力。

在互动答疑环节,汤漪和两位嘉宾共同强调了从事AI行业时所需的大爱心怀,以及在解决劳工权益与AI发展之间的潜在冲突时,采取的未来洞察力至关重要,AI应与人类形成更紧密的合作伙伴关系。当观众提出关于模型标准化与定制化的问题时,嘉宾们从数据样本的角度提供了独到的见解。对于中国与美国在AI创业领域的差异,吴刚博士分享了关于两国在思想、理念和技术层面的不同见解。

活动最后,我们对分享经验的业界校友、辛勤工作的志愿者团队,以及所有积极参与的听众表示衷心的感谢。本次讲座的成功不仅体现了北大大纽约地区校友会“未名传承”项目的价值,也展现了北大人在各行各业中不断探索和创新的精神。让我们共同期待更多精彩的分享,携手开启新的篇章!
