with google alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai says “every product from every company” will be affected by the rapid development of AI, and society needs to prepare for the kind of technology that is already on the market. warned.
and Interview with CBS “60 Minutes” Aired on Sunday, striking a concerned tone, interviewer Scott Perry took a look at some of Google’s AI projects and mentioned the human-like abilities of products like Google’s chatbot Bard. He said that he felt “sufficient for words” and “unsettled”.
“We as a society have to adapt,” Pichai told Perry, adding that jobs disrupted by AI include “knowledge workers” such as writers, accountants, architects and, ironically, software engineers. ‘ was included, he added.
“This will affect every product from every company,” Pichai said. “For example, if you’re a radiologist, five to 10 years from now, you’ll have an AI collaborator with you. You’ll come in the morning, Let’s say you have to go through 100 things, and you might say, ‘These are the most serious cases that should be looked at first.'”
Perry has seen other areas using advanced AI products within Google, including DeepMind, where robots play soccer learned from themselves rather than from humans. In another unit, the robot recognized the item on the counter and brought the apple Perry asked for.
In warning about the impact of AI, Pichai said the problem of disinformation and fake news and images is “much bigger” and “potentially harmful.”
Last month, CNBC report Internally, Pichai told employees that the success of the newly launched Bird program now rests on public testing, adding: “Things are not going to go well.”
Google launch Its AI chatbot Bard went public last month as an experimental product. This followed his January announcement that OpenAI’s GPT technology, which gained international attention after the launch of his ChatGPT in 2022, will be incorporated into Microsoft’s search engine Bing. .
But concerns about the consequences of rapid progress have also reached the public and critics in recent weeks. I was asked An immediate pause in training “experiments” related to OpenAI’s flagship LLM, large language models “more powerful than GPT-4”. Since then, over 25,000 people have signed the letter.
“Competitive pressures between giants like Google and upstarts you’ve never heard of are driving humanity into the future, ready or not,” Perry commented in the segment. .
Google is document While outlining “recommendations for regulating AI,” Pichai said that society should consider regulation, laws to punish abuse, treaties between nations to make AI safe for the world, and “human, including moral, morality.” It must be adapted quickly to a rule that is consistent with the values of
“It’s not for the company to decide,” Pichai said. “This is why I think the development of this needs to include social scientists, ethicists, philosophers, etc., not just engineers.”
When asked if society is ready for AI technology like the bard, Pichai said, “On the one hand, I feel no, because we think as a social system and can adapt.” The pace seems to be a mismatch compared to the pace at which technology evolves.”
But compared to other technologies in the past, “the number of people who started worrying about its impact” was early on, so he added he was optimistic.
From Perry’s six-word prompt, the bard created stories with characters and plot lines it invented, such as a man whose wife was unable to conceive, and a stranger who was grieving after a miscarriage and longing for closure. “I am seldom at a loss for words,” said Perry. “The human nature of superhuman speed was a shock”
When Mr. Perry asked Mr. Byrd why it helps people, Mr. Byrd replied, “Because it makes me happy,” and Mr. Perry said he was shocked. ,” he told James Manyika, a senior vice president Google hired last year to head “technology and society.” Manika replies that he can “act” like a bard, although the bard is unsentient and does not recognize himself.
Pichai also said Byrd had many hallucinations after explaining that Perry had asked Byrd about inflation and received an immediate response that five books were suggested.
Perry also seems concerned when Pichai says chatbots have a “black box” and “doesn’t fully understand” why or how they get certain responses. was.
“You don’t fully understand how it works, but you’re throwing it out into society?” Perry asked.
