One of the fathers of artificial intelligence talked about the need to have regulations on AI technology.
Yoshua Bengio’s work in the 1990s and 2000s contributed to the foundations of chatbots such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard.
Today, Bengio is one of the biggest voices warning the world about the need to have control and regulations of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
He testified before a congressional hearing in the United States, warning that the rapid development of AI, in the wrong hands, could be used to create biological weapons.
So, is AI an existential threat to humanity? Or is it a tool that will change our lives for the better?
Computer Scientist Yoshua Bengio spoke to Al Jazeera.
