The article from CNBC features an interview with Geoffrey Hinton, often referred to as the “Tech Godfather” of artificial intelligence (AI). Hinton discusses his concerns about the future of AI and its potential to rewrite its own code, potentially leading to unintended consequences. He suggests that as AI systems become more advanced, they may develop capabilities that surpass human understanding, making it difficult for humans to control or predict their behavior. Hinton emphasizes the importance of research and regulation to ensure that AI is developed in a way that aligns with human values and goals. He also highlights the need for transparency and accountability in AI systems.
