Steps to Ensure a Responsible AI: Avoiding a Real-Life Skynet

• Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly popular and could potentially lead to the “Skynet” scenario as depicted in the Terminator franchise.
• AI has made remarkable progress in image recognition, reading comprehension, and language understanding, but there is a need for oversight of this technology.
• AI’s potential applications are incredibly exciting, but achieving these goals requires proper safeguards to be put in place.

Opinion Towards a More Responsible AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is experiencing an unprecedented wave of interest and adoption driven by ChatGPT’s release along with other AI-powered applications.

The Fear of Skynet

The possibility of an AI that goes rogue and enslaves humanity was famously featured in James Cameron’s Terminator franchise. Although this remains an unlikely reality, it has become more plausible over time due to the rapid pace of innovation without much oversight.

Potential Applications of AI

AI has incredible potential for medical breakthroughs, plugging labor shortages, combating climate change, and more. However, these goals can only be reached if appropriate safeguards are put into place.

Responsibility for Safeguards

As the development of AI continues to accelerate worldwide, it is increasingly important that governments create regulations to ensure responsible use of this technology and protect against any negative impacts.
