Mira Murati, the Albanian Woman behind ChatGPT!


Murati is the chief technology officer at OpenAI, the startup behind ChatGPT!

ChatGPT is considered to be the most advanced AI chatbot ever to be deployed to a mass audience.

Born in Albania Murati pursued her studies in computer science at the University of Tirana, where she graduated with honors.

After completing her undergraduate studies, she signs for MIT and soon after joined Tesla, where she led the development of the Model X,

Murati has been with OpenAI since 2018  and she just made the announcement of the newest version of ChatpGPT4 on her Twitter account

Currently, she and her team are focused on improving OpenAI’s products. After all, billions of dollars are riding on the success of their technology, which could be Silicon Valley’s most disruptive since the iPhone.

Murati’s interest in AI started back in 2013 when she joined Tesla.

At the time, the company was releasing early versions of Autopilot, its AI-enabled driver-assistance software, and working on AI-enabled robots for its factories.

That gave Murati an alternative idea to consider how to real-world applications

She moved over to Leap Motion in 2016 to work on the startup’s augmented reality system to replace keyboards.

As VP of product and engineering, she hoped to make interacting with a computer “as intuitive as playing with a ball,” she tells Fast Company’s Harris.

But she soon realized the VR-based technology wasn’t close to being ready for a mass audience.

As Murati considered her next move led to her joining OpenAI in 2018, and her oversight of the rollouts of Dall-E and ChatGPT.

  • Building artificial general intelligence (AGI) solely within the confines of the lab, she argues, can make the societal shock even more disturbing when it does come out.

Within weeks, ChatGPT reached 100 million active monthly users, according to Statista. That made it the fastest-growing consumer application in history. (TikTok, for comparison, took nine months to hit those numbers and Instagram took two and a half years.)

As GPT-4, OpenAI’s next large language model, prepares to roll out, Murati knows the technology will be under an even bigger microscope, but when asked about it, she tells Time magazine, “less hype would be good.”

With GPT-4, Murati sees a chance to “broaden opportunities for people,” including showing educators that generative AI is a lot more than a way for students to cheat when they have a paper due. Instead, it can be a tool to help write lesson plans and assist student in learning in new ways.
