British-Canadian computer scientist Geoffrey Hinton is the founder of the Department of Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the University of Toronto. He is also known as the AI Godfather, today warning the world that “Artificial Intelligence (AI), will surpass human intelligence in the near future.”

On May 4, 2023, Hinton announced his resignation from Google. Reason said, “He wants to freely and unabashedly shed light on the perilous risks of artificial intelligence (AI). Expressing concern, there are potential risks of its deliberate misuse by notorious individuals or groups, technological unemployment, existential threat liability.” Moreover, Atab says with a heavy heart, “I regret and regret the inventions I have made with artificial intelligence.”

Geoffrey Hinton is an internationally renowned figure for the construction of artificial neural networks, particularly those that can be designed in the classroom without teacher assistance. Such as independent intelligent brain-like machines.

Dr. on neural network and deep learning (Deep Learning). Hinton’s pioneering research paved the way for current artificial intelligence (AI) systems such as the Chat Generative Pre-training Transformer (ChatGPT).

In artificial intelligence, neural networks are systems that learn information and apply processes similar to the human brain. Artificial intelligence also helps learn from experience, just as a person can. This is called deep learning.

He added, “I have come to the conclusion that the kind of intelligence we are developing is very different from the intelligence of humans like us. We are biological systems and these are digital systems. And the big difference is that digital systems can have many copies of the same model. It’s not possible. With all these copies, multiple people can learn separately and share the knowledge instantly. Imagine you have 10,000 people who want to know, and whenever one person learns something, everyone knows it automatically (AI). through. And that way these chatbots are able to know a lot more than any human being.”

Dr. Hinton also said, “He was only an expert in science, not in policy or decision-making. It is the government’s responsibility to ensure that artificial intelligence (AI) is developed, put a lot of thought into how to stop it from becoming malicious, and fund it.”

But in a statement, Google’s chief scientist Jeff Dean also said: “We are committed to a responsible approach to artificial intelligence. We are constantly learning to understand emerging risks and striving to innovate boldly.”

From the 1980s, Dr. Hinton was also a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, but he later left the faculty because he was reluctant to pursue Pentagon-funded research.

By the year 2023, Hinton’s anxiety grew even more, when he noticed the rapid progress of artificial intelligence (AI). He thought it would take 50 years or more for artificial general intelligence to advance. However, in March 2023, he told CBS News that it would not be another 20 years before the use of “general purpose artificial intelligence” begins. This will bring about what may be called “radical changes similar to the Industrial Revolution or the invention of electricity.”

In an interview with the New York Times on May 1, 2023, Hinton said, “I resigned from Google because of the impending dangers and dangers of artificial intelligence, and the impact it will have on Google!” He is also fearing and taking into account competition from Google and Microsoft.

Geoffrey Hinton, known as the godfather of (AI), worked with Google for a decade, teaching. Recently, he quit his job so that he can warn the world about the dangers of (AI), how it can harm humanity.

In an interview with the BBC, Hinton revealed that artificial intelligence will soon surpass the information capacity of the human brain. He describes that today the importance of chatbots is immense and scary, with the ability to learn independently and share knowledge easily to advance quickly. That is, any information a search party can easily spread to the entire group. Artificial intelligence chatbots will have the ability to easily store knowledge, far beyond the capabilities of any human being.

Risks from General Artificial Intelligence:
As for the takeover of artificial intelligence, it is not inconceivable that its particular application could be a threat to humanity, Hinton believes. His concern is that general artificial intelligence, uncoordinated with the interests of programmers, will be able to penetrate different target centers at the same time. “We have to think about how to keep the entire enforcement system under control,” says Hinton.

Apocalyptic abuse:
The hardest thing to date is to identify someone who wants to abuse. Hinton therefore called for an international ban on lethal autonomous weapons.

Economic Impact:
Previously optimistic about the economic impact, Hinton thought a robot with general artificial intelligence would do more work than any human. Now, he says that’s not the case. The robot will perform many routine tasks but will require human assistance or not be redundant. But the labor market will continue to shrink as robots will replace drudgery.
