What if we calmed down on artificial intelligence?

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, many tech pundits are calling for artificial intelligence research to be slowed down to avoid “risks to society and humanity.”

Several tech experts including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Tesla CEO Elon Musk have signed an open letter asking artificial intelligence (AI) research labs to pause development of computer systems. 'large-scale AI.

Citing fears of "profound risks to society and humanity," the letter explains that AI labs are currently in an uncontrolled race to develop and deploy systems that "no one, even not their creators, can reliably understand, predict, or control.”

Strict protocols in place

The letter continues: “We call on all AI labs to immediately suspend training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4 for at least 6 months. This break should be public, verifiable and include all key players. If such a pause cannot be put in place quickly, governments must intervene and establish a moratorium”.

“AI labs and independent experts should take advantage of this pause to develop and implement a set of shared security protocols for advanced AI design and development, rigorously audited and overseen by external independent experts. These protocols should ensure that systems adhering to them are secure beyond reasonable doubt”.
