Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt thinks AI is more powerful than nukes but not as powerful as the values of those who created it. There is a controversy about AI being given the decision to “push the button”. This would lead to mutually assured destruction that is actually the biggest deterrent for countries contemplating the use of nukes. Dennis Hassabis, CEO of DeepMind, has this to say, “It matters who builds [AI], which cultures they come from, and what values they have, the builders of AI systems. The AI systems will learn for themselves… but there’ll be a residue in the system of the culture and values of the creators of that system.”
Editor’s Note: AI is as powerful as nukes only because the culture of the makers is keen on world domination and eventually world destruction. AI is only as good as its programmers. As the saying goes, “Garbage in. Garbage out.”
