With insights from a Financial Times interview, the chief artificial intelligence (AI) scientist, Meta, mentioned that worries over the existential risks of the technology are still “premature,” stated Cointelegraph.
Sources revealed that on October 19, 2023, Yann LeCun mentioned that the premature regulation of AI technology would reinforce the dominance of big technology companies and leave no room for competition, Cointelegraph added.
“The debate on existential risk is very premature until we have a design for a system that can even rival a cat in terms of learning capabilities, which we don’t have at the moment,” LeCun explained.
It is believed that the AI boom really took off after the release of OpenAI’s chatbot ChatGPT-4 in November 2022. Furthermore, many leaders in the industry are expected to mention about AI-based threats to humanity, Cointelegraph concluded.
