Tech Boss Warns of 25% Chance AI Could Destroy Human Civilization


Doomsday Prediction Made by Tech CEO Ahead of AI Summit

A tech boss has issued a startling warning that there is a one in four chance that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could lead to the destruction of human civilization. Dario Amodei, CEO of tech firm Anthropic, made this prediction ahead of Rishi Sunak's upcoming AI summit. The event, set to take place at Bletchley Park, aims to address the need for regulation in order to prevent potential catastrophic consequences.

Concerns over Misuse and Potential Risks

Amodei expressed his concerns about the possible misuse of AI technology by individuals, organizations, or nation states. He emphasized the importance of society being able to handle the potential risks associated with AI. However, he also noted that there is a high probability (75-90%) that AI can be developed successfully and benefit humanity, such as by curing cancer and extending human lifespan.

PM Hosts Global AI Summit

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is hosting the world's first global AI summit at Bletchley Park, renowned for being the home of the Enigma codebreakers. Sunak aims to position Britain at the forefront of AI technology, but he also stresses the need for effective regulation to ensure safety.

Calls for Effective Regulation

Andrea Miotti, a representative from the campaign group Control AI, highlighted concerns about the influence of big tech companies in shaping AI regulation. Miotti argued that the same companies acknowledging the potential risks of their products are the ones involved in the decision-making process regarding AI safety regulations. The group advocates for robust and effective regulation to ensure public safety.
