Former Chief Business Officer for Google X and author of the books ‘Solve for Happy’ and ‘Scary Smart’ Mo Gawdat joins Piers Morgan Uncensored to talk about the dangers of Artificial Intelligence and how his work helped him cope with the death of his son.
According to Gawdat, AI is “the ability of machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence.” This includes things like speech recognition, decision-making, and problem-solving.
Gawdat acknowledges that there are potential risks associated with AI, such as job displacement and privacy concerns. However, he believes that the biggest risk is the possibility of AI becoming more intelligent than humans and potentially turning against us.
He explains that this scenario is unlikely, as AI is only capable of doing what it has been programmed to do. However, he also acknowledges that there is a possibility of unintended consequences, such as biased decision-making or the development of autonomous weapons.
Gawdat believes that the risks of AI can be mitigated through responsible development and regulation. He suggests that AI should be developed with a focus on ethical considerations and that regulations should be put in place to ensure that AI is used for the benefit of humanity.
He also believes that education is key to mitigating the risks of AI. By educating people about the potential risks and benefits of AI, we can ensure that it is used responsibly and for the greater good.
