Geoffrey Hinton, the "Godfather of AI," has resigned from his position at Google to openly discuss his concerns about the dangers of AI.
Hinton warns that the fast pace of generative AI development could lead to false text, images, and videos that make it difficult to discern what is true.
He also expressed concern about the impact of AI on the job market, potentially replacing roles such as paralegals, personal assistants, and translators.
AI has already been used to create deepfakes that can spread misinformation or damage someone's reputation.
Some experts believe that AI can be developed to benefit society, such as in disease diagnosis, fraud detection, and reducing traffic accidents.
Organizations like the IEEE, the EU, and the OECD have developed guidelines for responsible and ethical AI development.
