Co-Director & Faculty Associate Share Their Views on Mitigating the Risk of Extinction from AI

The Algorithmic Bridge

TPL Co-Director Ryan Calo and faculty associate Professor Emily M. Bender speak on the recent CAIS statement on AI risk. According to both members of TPL, the main concern of AI is not human extinction. If anything, that seems unlikely. The more important issues of AI are corporations ‘accelerating wealth and income inequality, lack of integrity in information & exploitation of natural resources.’” If extinction was plausible, companies would stop AI development, but they clearly have not.
