Not even the super-rich think artificial intelligence is a good idea.
A recent CNN article summarized the letter of a non-for-profit organization calling for all A.I. labs to stop developing this new technology. The letter (who’s organization is backed by Elon Musk) was signed by Elon Musk, as well as dozens of leaders and researchers in the tech industry.
You know the waves of all those memes on the internet of presidents like Trump and Obama playing Minecraft? That was all made with ChatGPT, an A.I. bot that mimics human voices. While hilarious, they represent an undeniable change for the future. It will become harder and harder to tell what’s real, which goes without saying, is incredibly dangerous when it’s made to look like world leaders saying random stuff.
The letter was formed after a new technology was developed, even better than ChatGPT. GPT-4 in its early testing was shown to be able to build a website from a hand-drawn sketch, pass standardized tests, and even create lawsuits. Imagine minding your business, and then one day you get sued for nothing by a robot.
The letter called for a pause on A.I. even more powerful than GPT-4. It seems like it’s going to be an uphill battle, though, since mega-corporations like Google and Microsoft use and are developing artificial intelligence to use in their products. Even other companies like Amazon are joining the game and working on their own A.I. uses.
Soon, it seems like not even creatives will be worried about A.I. stealing their jobs.
What do you think of A.I.? Do you think it has its uses? Do you think it’s gotta go? Let me know!
