Co-Director Assures AI is Not as Powerful or Threatening as it Seems

LA Times

TPL Co-Director Ryan Calo comments in a LA Times article that artificial intelligence chatbots aren’t as threatening or ‘intelligent’ as they seem. The public and AI companies claiming these chatbots can reach human intelligence or being a detriment to society is not accurate. Professor Calo insists that these claims are being used to convince the public of the importance of AI and to distract them to maintain their current business models. Additionally, these claims take attention away from the current issues that AI has created.
