Artificial intelligence experts, industry leaders and researchers are calling on AI developers to immediately stop training models more powerful than the latest version of OpenAI's ChatGPT (4).
More than 1.100 people from the industry have signed a petition calling on labs to stop training their powerful AI systems for at least six months so that common security protocols can be developed.
Prominent figures in the tech community, such as Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, are signing the petition, although their participation could not be immediately verified.
"In recent months we've seen AI labs locked in an out-of-control race to develop increasingly powerful digital minds that no one — not even their creators — can reliably understand, predict or control," the open letter said. that was published on the Future of Life Institute website.
"Strong artificial intelligence systems should only be developed when we are sure that their results will be positive and their risks will be manageable."
