AI Technology Could Exceed Human Expertise in 10 Years, Raising Existential Risks


ChatGPT makers have outlined a warning that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could “surpass expert human skill levels” within ten years, as the technology becomes increasingly powerful. This is the latest in a series of warnings from technology giants like Open AI, whose executives have cautioned about the potential for it to create an “existential risk” of catastrophic results.

Open AI leaders Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, and Ilya Sutskever wrote in a blog post that AI systems could soon match the productivity of some of the world’s largest companies. To manage the associated risks, the executives proposed three initiatives, one of which includes the creation of a global body to audit and inspect advanced AI technology to maintain safety standards.

They also proposed that companies should have an “extremely high standard” when it comes to acting responsibly, and the creation of a limited growth rate for AI capability on an annual basis.

The leaders caution that it is risky and difficult to prevent the creation of superintelligence, but acknowledge the potential for tremendous upsides.
