Mustafa Suleiman, co-founder of Google DeepMind, believes that "generative artificial intelligence is only a phase."

What's next is interactive AI — bots that can perform tasks by turning to other software and others to get something done," Suleiman said in an interview with MIT Technology Review.

He is a British AI researcher and entrepreneur who co-founded DeepMind, an AI company acquired by Google. He is currently the co-founder and CEO of a new artificial intelligence startup, Inflection AI.
