In an open letter, more than 1,000 leaders in technology and artificial intelligence, including Elon Musk, Andrew Yang, and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, called for a halt to AI research due to “deep hazards to society and mankind.”
Elon Musk, Sam Altman, and others established the research facility OpenAI to advance artificial intelligence (AI) in a way that will most likely be helpful to people.
With the usage of self-driving cars and automated medical diagnosing tools, among other industries, AI has advanced significantly during the past several years.
Applications for natural language processing, including the ChatGPT system, have been developed by OpenAI.
A few months ago, ChatGPT, a public release of an AI language model, became one of history’s most widely used consumer applications.
It reached 100 million monthly active users in a short period. According to a UBS study, TikTok and Instagram required nine months and three years to get the same user base.
Despite the potential advantages of artificial intelligence, its development also carries significant hazards. If not used properly, AI systems have the potential to be harmful.
This is worse because several AI apps are created and used without supervision or control.
Also, there is a chance that AI systems will have unexpected repercussions. For instance, the political bias introduced into the algorithms by the people in charge of the AI systems may result in choices based on invalid standards.
The effects on social justice and equality may be significant.
Elon Musk criticized San Francisco politics and bemoaned how “Twitter was exporting this self-destructive mind virus to the world” in response to Ashlee Vance’s tweet about the appalling condition of downtown San Francisco.
Musk remarked, “Extremely alarming, given that it leads to a dystopian future – just walk around downtown SF to see what will happen,” in response to a query about worries about Open AI baking these politics into the base of machine learning.
