Why The Godfather of A.I. Fears What He's Built

Geoffrey Hinton, often called “the godfather of A.I.”, warns about the ‘existential threat’ artificial intelligence poses to the human species.

  • The more he used tools like OpenAI’s ChatGPT or Google’s Bard, the more uneasy Hinton became.

Hinton isn’t the only prominent technologist speaking out about the dangers of AI…

  • Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, is issuing warnings that AI may seek to one day take over or eliminate human civilization.

Of course, there are skeptics who say many overestimate the power of AI, noting that a great deal separates human minds from neural nets.

  • Still, when the so-called “godfather” of something speaks on the dangers of the very thing he helped create, it should set off alarm bells in your head.
