An interview on: Artificial intelligence experts are calling for a six-month pause
Prof. Seyedali Mirjalili's interview with Channel 10 In Australia. He discusses the impact of AI in education and its risks to humanity.
Professor Seyedali Mirjalili, Director of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Optimization at Torrens University, shares his views on a letter from the nonprofit Future of Life Institute that calls for a pause on advanced AI development. According to him, putting a stop to AI development is not feasible. In his opinion, policy makers, decision makers, and governments need to work together towards inclusive and responsible AI technology. Additionally, as AI technology progresses, there is an increased need for counter AI systems to distinguish between real and AI-generated content. Nonetheless, he remains optimistic about AI's potential to solve global issues like climate change and poverty. He anticipates that ChatGPT AI will play a significant role in the future as more services and products integrate it, making it crucial for efficient and productive work.
While he agrees with the concerns raised, Ali believes we should focus on using AI responsibly and inclusively instead of banning it. He also highlights the need for rules and regulations to minimize risks and maximize benefits. Ali sees AI as a tool that will help us be more efficient, leaving more room for creativity and fun.
