The potential of AI are endless, as we have recently seen, and they are only now starting to be investigated. To be mindful of the possible risks associated with the technology, researchers and industry leaders have warned developers and users as AI development picks up speed.
Recent forecasts concerning the effects of AI on human society were made by a British AI expert. Emad Mostaque, the creator of the tech company Stability AI, cautioned that AI could surpass mankind in capability and eventually take control of humanity in an interview with the BBC. He thinks democracy may be in jeopardy if robots surpass humans in intelligence.
“I think it’ll be like that movie, personally.” I could be wrong, but I think she’ll say something like, “Goodbye, you’re kind of boring,” with Scarlett Johansson and Joaquin Phoenix because people are sort of boring.
Governments will have to take action and enact regulations to restrain the power of AI, which, in his opinion, might have a more detrimental effect on the economy than the COVID-19 epidemic.
Despite the dangers, Mr. Mostaque said that there may be enormous advantages to AI in practically every aspect of our life. He believes that better jobs will take their place as a result of machines taking over mundane chores and freeing people up to focus on more important responsibilities. He continued by saying that “it’s up to us to decide which direction” this whole thing takes.
In particular, his business developed Stable Diffusion, a technology that uses AI to build visuals from straightforward text instructions by studying photos obtained online.
Recently, a computer scientist known as “the godfather of artificial intelligence” resigned from his position at Google to warn against the risks posed by the technology. He stated that “profound risks to society and humanity” were posed by the field’s developments.
Elon Musk, a tech entrepreneur, and a number of other specialists urged for a halt to AI system development in March so that they could be tested for safety. The introduction of GPT-4, a significantly more potent version of the technology utilised by ChatGPT, generated an open letter that was signed by more than 1,000 people, including Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
