“AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity as shown by extensive research and acknowledged by top AI labs.“
The open letter was published not long after the release of OpenAI’s GPT-4, the massive language model that serves as the foundation for ChatGPT. It’s the most sophisticated AI system ever built, and it’s impressed and alarmed its peers in the field.
The letter says-
“Advanced AI could represent a profound change in the history of life on Earth, and should be planned for and managed with commensurate care and resources.”
“Unfortunately, this level of planning and management is not happening, even though recent months have seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy ever more powerful digital minds that no one — not even their creators — can understand, predict or reliably control.”
