Geoffrey Hinton, better known as "the Godfather of AI," has announced his resignation from Google to focus on warning of the dangers of generative AI technology.
Hinton's life work has been in advancing Artificial Intelligence, but now he believes that there are significant dangers that AI poses if which we all need to be aware.
He stated during an interview "I console myself with the normal excuse: If I hadn’t done it, somebody else would have. It is hard to see how you can prevent the bad actors from using it for bad things."
The rise of ChatGPT and Google Bard has been revolutionary but also alarming. It didn't take long for conservatives to notice that chatbots were often programmed with leftist biases and other political anomalies.
Hinton added, "Look at how it was five years ago and how it is now. Take the difference and propagate it forwards. That’s scary."
He believes the AI revolution that will change our world is closer than many believe. AI will bring many changes that will disrupt life as we know it, and many of its impacts won't be positive for the human race.
