Hope you all had a great weekend, and didn't get fooled on April 1st!
My Reason For Writing Today:
If you've been reading (or listening) to the news, you'll no doubt have heard that Elon Musk is calling for a six-month pause on the advancement of AI.
Even though he was an investor in one of the big AI companies, he fears that "AI in the wrong hands" could lead to propaganda. (No kidding...) Over the weekend I purchased a book called "The Big Nine" by Amy Webb, which the cover states: "How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity." My emphasis on "could."
I'll report back on what I learned. Suffice to say, in her introduction, she says that we shouldn't label all the AI thought leaders as "bad guys," and that they should be "given the chance" to ensure that AI won't and can't be used for nefarious reasons.
