AI is often compared to the Printing Press but is that a good analogy? Did the printing press democratise access to knowledge or was it the invention of cheap paper? Do we actually yet have a democratisation of knowledge some 500 years later and is the current rhetoric that Generative AI democratises access to AI true now or likely to be in the future? Who are the winners and losers of the latest generation of AI tools; the few Big tech companies which can create it (80% of the world does not have the compute power to create LLMs) or the emerging world economies. How can we create Responsible Generative AI and whose obligation is it to do so, the tech companies as Eric Schmidt of Google argues or governments, which he says dont understand the product and therefore cannot do so. In what other industry would government accept such logic?
