ChatGPT pioneer Sam Altman, others warn AI can wipe out humanity, if left loose

A number of artificial intelligence (AI) experts, academicians and notable people including OpenAI CEO and Google DeepMind Tuesday warned of humanity’s extinction if the threats posed by AI to humans were not dealt with as a top global priority.

In a brief statement published on the webpage of the Centre for AI Safety Tuesday, it read: “Mitigating the risk of extinction from AI should be a global priority alongside other societal-scale risks such as pandemics and nuclear war.”

The statement was also backed by Sam Altman, CEO of ChatGPT-maker OpenAI, Demis Hassabis, CEO of Google DeepMind and Dario Amodei of Anthropic.

Similar kinds of warnings were also issued in an open letter that surfaced in March which urged to pause AI development citing profound risks to human civilisation. There were numerous signatories including Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

The godfather of AI Geoffrey Hinton, who had been also voicing concerns and quit Google to speak freely about the dangers of AI has also supported the idea.
