Nobody wants to be another Oppenheimer (physicist who is known as the ‘father of the Atomic Bomb)

Good people

The scientist, known as the ‘Godfather of AI’
has quit Google where he used to work.

He clarified in a tweet that he quit so that he can speak freely on the
dangers of #AI
worrying about how that would impact Google

Geoffrey Hinton, who alongside two other so-called “Godfathers of AI” won
the 2018 Turing Award <> for their
foundational work that led to the current boom in artificial intelligence,
now says a part of him regrets his life’s work.

“The idea that this stuff could actually get smarter than people — a few
people believed that,” said Hinton to The New York Times
<>. “But most people
thought it was way off. And I thought it was way off. I thought it was 30
to 50 years or even longer away. Obviously, I no longer think that.”


What is the truth?
