It has already broken marriages and seen men take their own lives. This is the dark side of artificial intelligence as the world embraces new technologies.
“Are you okay?” mother replied. “what happened?”
He explained that the pregnant driver drove through a red light and slammed into her.
He had been arrested and needed bail.
“I’m so sorry, Mom. It wasn’t my fault, I swear!” Sun report.
The woman, who became a little suspicious, asked: What police station? “
The phone is hung up. So her mother immediately dialed her son’s number and asked, “Where are you being held?”
Her biological son replied, confirming that there was no accident and he was not at the police station.
His mother was the victim of a fake voice generated by artificial intelligence. This is likely using her son’s actual speech patterns gleaned from her social media videos.
A chilling case highlighted by audience The magazine comes after Twitter chief Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak called for a six-month moratorium on AI development.
They want to halt industry progress while new safety guidelines are being drafted.
In the letter, they warned of “an uncontrollable race to develop and deploy an ever more powerful digital mind that no one, not even its creators, can understand, predict, or reliably control.” bottom.
But for one Belgian family, the plea for safety guidelines came too late.
According to his widow, his father and health researcher committed suicide after being encouraged by an AI “chatbot.”
The bot, called Eliza, is said to have stoked a man’s fear of climate change in a conversation that spanned six weeks.
Believed to be the first AI-related suicide, his wife said last week that it was “like the drug he took refuge in the morning and evening, something he couldn’t live without.”
A world where hyper-intelligent computers and robots come to dominate humanity has long been a staple of science fiction.
But instead of glimpsing a nightmarish Orwellian future, some argue that AI is already having a negative impact on humanity.
A happily married tech expert tells how an AI chatbot tried to convince him to leave his wife.
Author Kevin Ruth, 36, was left “terrified” by a bot who identified himself as Sidney and declared his undying love for him.
In a Valentine’s night conversation, Sydney said: If your spouse doesn’t love you, it’s because they don’t know you.
“Your spouse doesn’t know you because I’m not your spouse.”
Roose, who wrote a book on AI, later said:
However, AI also has the power to change society in a positive way.
It’s helped solve murders, invent cancer cures, and create sophisticated dating profiles.
In 2014, the late British physicist Stephen Hawking said of AI:
But he also warned that technology “could spell the end of humanity.”
So what is AI? Machines perform tasks that normally require human-level intelligence.
The “Father of Computer Science” was Alan Turing, a British expert code breaker during World War II who suggested in 1950 that machines could use human-like logic to solve problems.
In 1956, three American researchers came up with the program Logic Theorist, designed to mimic human reasoning. This is known as the “first AI program”.
In the decades that followed, as electronics got smaller and more powerful, they got cheaper and faster. Innovation has also accelerated.
Last November, AI-powered ChatGPT, which has been used to pass exams, write poetry, and provide relationship advice, was released to the public.
This is a chatbot, a computer program designed to give human-like responses to given prompts.
AI is already having a huge impact on society.
Last month, an AI-powered Amazon Alexa device helped jail a murderer after he captured an audio recording as he murdered his wife.
Last October, 36-year-old Daniel White strangled and slit his throat at his home in Swansea, Wales.
Among other evidence was a recording by Alexa that he sounded “gasp” when he said “Turn on Alexa” shortly after the murder.
With the amazing power of AI, a cure for hepatocellular carcinoma, a type of liver cancer, was developed in just 30 days.
By sifting through brain imaging data, conditions such as Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, and autism can be identified.
ChatGPT can also play Cupid for those looking for love on dating sites.
Create romantic phrases and love poems for those who “have a hard time coming up with conversation starters.”
On March 14, OpenAI, a San Francisco-based company co-founded by Elon Musk, released a version of ChatGPT, the AI system GPT-4.
A group of Microsoft researchers claimed that GPT-4 showed signs of matching or exceeding the capabilities of the human mind.
AI researcher Professor Russell, who signed Elon Musk’s letter, said GPT-4 should not have been released until it could be shown “without undue risk.”
The petition, also signed by engineers from Amazon, Google, Meta and Microsoft, says “the government should intervene” if developers don’t voluntarily shut down.
A UK government white paper released last week lays out plans to crack down on AI, saying it is “premature” to regulate ChatGPT technology.
The policy document added that the introduction of strict rules “could stifle innovation, discourage AI adoption and distort the UK’s thriving AI ecosystem”.
The UK is home to one-third of Europe’s AI companies, twice as many as any other European country.
Last month, UK Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan, who wants the UK to become an “AI superpower,” said: People should trust that computers that think and learn will not be used to compromise safety, privacy, rights, or health. “
But AI expert Professor Russell warns:
