AI Co-Developer Quits Google over AI Concerns
Geoffrey Hinton, a well-known figure in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), has resigned from Google and expressed concerns about the dangers of AI technology. Hinton, who is considered the godfather of AI, has warned that chatbots and other AI systems could soon become more intelligent than humans, raising the risk of bad actors using the technology for malicious purposes. He also pointed out that the intelligence being developed in digital systems is very different from human intelligence, and warned that a pause on AI development could be difficult due to international competition. Despite these concerns, Hinton believes that AI will deliver many benefits in the short term, as long as it is developed responsibly.
