“Mitigating the risk of AI extinction should become a global priority alongside other societal-scale risks such as pandemics and nuclear war,” the statement posted online said.
Sam Altman, CEO of ChatGPT maker OpenAI, and Geoffrey Hinton, the computer scientist known as the godfather of artificial intelligence, were among hundreds of key figures who signed the statement, which was posted on the website of the Center for AI Safety.
