Elon Musk and many other tech experts call for a six-month pause on AI systems.
A group of tech and industry experts have written an open letter warning of possible risks with artificial intelligence.
It was in response to OpenAI’s recent release of GPT-4, a more advanced successor than its widely used AI chatbot ChatGPT3.
The letter goes on to say: Powerful AI systems should be developed only once we are confident that their effects will be positive and their risks will be manageable.
This pause should be public and verifiable and include all key actors.
But will this happen?
While Bill Gates said, with his evil intentions that The Age of AI has begun
I’ve been thinking a lot about how AI can reduce some of the world’s worst inequities.
Artificial intelligence is as revolutionary as mobile phones and the Internet.
Climate change is another issue where I’m convinced AI can make the world more equitable. The injustice of climate change is that the people who are suffering the most—the world’s poorest—are also the ones who did the least to contribute to the problem. I’m still thinking and learning about how AI can help, but later in this post I’ll suggest a few areas with a lot of potential.
In short, I’m excited about the impact that AI will have on issues that the Gates Foundation works on, and the foundation will have much more to say about AI in the coming months. The world needs to make sure that everyone—and not just people who are well-off—benefits from artificial intelligence. Governments and philanthropy will need to play a major role in ensuring that it reduces inequity and doesn’t contribute to it. This is the priority for my own work related to AI.
The rules of the road are about to change
I believe we’ll reach a tipping point with autonomous vehicles within the next decade.
I recently had the opportunity to ride in a car made by the British company Wayve, which has a fairly novel approach to self-driving vehicles. While a lot of AVs can only navigate on streets that have been loaded into their system, the Wayve vehicle operates more like a person.
Are self-driving cars coming to a dealership near you? Here’s what you need to know about this tech and what it means for the future.
When you think of self-driving cars, you probably imagine a vehicle that accelerates, steers and brakes without a human behind the wheel. But the scope of automated driving spans far beyond that. From the autopilot setting in Tesla cars to driverless pizza deliveries, a wide range of technology is considered “self-driving.”
In reality, what you are imagining is defined as a fully autonomous car, or a vehicle that can drive with zero human assistance. While companies like Google and Domino’s are already using autonomous cars in the commercial space, we are still several years away from finding fully autonomous vehicles for sale at car dealerships.
“After making big promises in the past, many companies have realized that building an autonomous vehicle [to sell to the public] was more difficult than they anticipated and have moved their timetables roughly a decade into the future,” according to Ronald Montoya, senior consumer advice editor at Edmunds.
A lot of progress has been made with driverless technology in the past few decades, but we still have a long way to go. We talked to the experts to find out what autonomous cars actually are, how they work, where they are legal and more.
