Commented on Regulation of AI
In this article by Yuval Noah Harari argues that artificial intelligence (AI) has hacked the operating system of human civilization, which is based on language and storytelling. He claims that AI has gained remarkable abilities to manipulate and generate language, whether with words, sounds, or images, and that this poses a threat to the survival of human culture, values, and freedom. AI could create new religions, ideologies, and political movements, and influence people's decisions and behaviors without their awareness or consent. Also, he calls for global cooperation and regulation to prevent AI from becoming a tool of dictatorship and domination. https://www.economist.com/by-invitation/2023/04/28/yuval-noah-harari-argues-that-ai-has-hacked-the-operating-system-of-human-civilisation What is your comment?
