AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio says governments must move fast to ‘protect the public’ 🚨
🤖AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio warns that governments must act fast before large language models destabilize democracy and pose a risk to truth and political systems
💡 In an interview with the Financial Times, Bengio highlights the lack of scrutiny being applied to large language models and calls for closer monitoring of which companies are using it and for what purposes.
🔎Advanced AI systems come with significant dangers, with some experts highlighting their potential abuses, including misinformation, insidious bias, and discrimination against marginalized groups. Additionally, Bengio and other senior AI researchers warn about the long-term threats that could arise should AI systems become more autonomous this decade.
🤔To deal with these challenges, Bengio is urging regulators to make AI systems more transparent and to audit the data used to train them. He has also proposed the creation of an international coalition to fund AI research in areas that matter to the public, such as climate and healthcare.
🌍As Bengio and other experts highlight the risks associated with large language models and other sophisticated AI systems, governments must take note and take steps to protect the public.
