Trust AI leaders? Nope

Horse and buggy days are long, long gone, and humans have yet to adapt to driving motor vehicles without incurring tens of thousands of deaths each year.

In the U.S., we are unable to shake our deadly addictions to fossil fuels and guns.

As humans we routinely fail to or refuse to treat all of our human family with respect.

How can anyone be optimistic about our collective ability to adapt quickly and responsibly to the widespread adoption of artificial intelligence?

We are just not that sophisticated or aware, and we can’t trust would-be tyrants and real-life despots to protect our interests.

We also cannot count on Google and others who will profit enormously from AI to do the right thing. I did not find any reassurance at all in the words of the “AI leaders” on 60 Minutes last night.

Did you?

Please share any constructive suggestions for responsible AI regulation.
