Ex-Google Officer Finally Speaks Out On The Dangers Of AI

Binary Code Digital Face

As an individual constantly fascinated by technology, I am always eager to learn more. While my love for  technology may be a bit of a love/hate relationship, the challenge of staying up-to-date with technological advancements keeps me engaged.

Recently, I wrote a blog post about “What AI Thinks About Art,” which generated a lot of interest and sparked debates. It has become clear that many people are curious about Artificial Intelligence and its potential implications on our lives, and understandably so.

I discovered a video I felt the need to share with my readers. The video features Mo Gawdat, a former chief business officer of Google X, AI expert, and best-selling author. He is on a mission to save the world from AI before it’s too late. In the video, he discusses various topics, including whether AI is alive and capable of experiencing emotions, what Artificial Intelligence is, whether or not it is dangerous, and finally, the extent to which it can be creative.

I hope you take a few minutes to watch it, as it is highly informative and thought-provoking.
