Infosys Founder Says, AI-powered Chatbots Can’t Beat Human Mind

The internet is flooded with all the things that ChatGPT is capable of doing, ranging from coding to human-like conversations.

Amidst all that, Infosys Founder, Narayana Murthy opines, “Nothing can beat the human mind — not even AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT.”

Murthy added, “ChatGPT is an excellent addition to knowledge generation, to doing certain tasks, for example, writing an essay. But let’s remember, both you and I have access to the same ChatGPT. The human mind is what differentiates one from the other.”

Murthy is the founder of the information technology services firm Infosys and was the CEO of the company from 1981 to 2002.

Murthy said, “If there is a competition between you and me, you will use the ChatGPT output as your base, and then you will add your own differentiation, your own smartness, your own tweaking and that’s when the teachers will be much more impressed with you than with me. The lazy guys will get C. Only smart people will get A. Therefore, I am not so much worried about ChatGPT.”

Murthy said that he will use ChatGPT as an instrument, and as an assistant to produce better quality of work and output — but not as a human replacement.

He concluded, “At the end of the day, I am a great believer in the theory that the human mind is the most powerful imagination, a machine. There is nothing that can beat the human mind.”
