Experts Warn of the Dangers of Superintelligent ai

The potential risks posed by highly-intelligent artificial intelligence (ai) systems have raised concerns among experts in the field.

Fear of Superintelligent ai: A Growing Concern

Recently, renowned ai researcher Geoffrey Hinton, known as the “Godfather of ai,” expressed his concerns about the possibility of superintelligent ai surpassing human capabilities and causing catastrophic consequences for humanity. Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI – the company behind popular chatbot ChatGPT – also voiced his fears regarding the potential effects of advanced ai on society.

OpenAI’s Response: The Superalignment Initiative

In response to these concerns, OpenAI announced the establishment of a new unit called “Superalignment.” The primary objective of this initiative is to ensure that superintelligent ai does not lead to chaos or even human extinction.

The Need for a Proactive Approach

Although the development of superintelligent ai may still be some years away, OpenAI believes it could become a reality by 2030. Currently, there is no established system for controlling and guiding such an ai, making the need for proactive measures all the more crucial.

Superalignment: Building a Human-Level Alignment Researcher

Superalignment aims to assemble a team of top machine learning researchers and engineers who will work on developing a “roughly human-level automated alignment researcher.” This researcher’s responsibility will be to conduct safety checks on superintelligent ai systems.

The Transformative Impact of ai: Current and Future Challenges

ai tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard have already brought significant changes to the workplace and society. Experts predict that these changes will only intensify in the near future, even before the advent of superintelligent ai.

Governance and Regulation: The Global Response

Recognizing the transformative potential of ai, governments worldwide are racing to establish regulations for its safe and responsible deployment. However, the lack of a unified international approach poses challenges.

Addressing Challenges: OpenAI’s Approach

By proactively working towards aligning ai systems with human values and developing necessary governance structures, OpenAI aims to mitigate the dangers that could arise from the immense power of superintelligence.
