Artificial intelligence will wipe humanity within 10 years: 42% top CEOs warn in survey


🤖 Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a hot topic lately, and the opinions of top CEOs are divided on its potential risks. According to a recent survey conducted by Yale University’s ‘CEO Summit,’ a staggering 42% of CEOs believe that AI could pose a significant threat to humanity within the next 5-10 years. 😱

This survey, highlighted by CNN, gathered insights from 119 CEOs representing globally successful companies such as Walmart, Zoom, Coca-Cola, and various media and pharmaceutical giants. The results were described as “dark” and “alarming” by Yale professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld. 👥

While 34% of CEOs expressed concerns that AI could potentially destroy humanity within a decade, 8% believed this scenario could unfold even sooner, within five years. On the other hand, some CEOs were not worried about such outcomes. 🤔

These concerns echo the recent departure of Geoffrey Hinton, renowned as the “Godfather of AI,” from his position at Google. Hinton emphasized the profound risks AI poses to society and humanity and urged caution in its rapid advancement. He emphasized the need for a deeper understanding of AI’s potential and how to control it, considering the potential misuse by malicious actors. ⚠️

The discussion surrounding AI’s impact on humanity is becoming increasingly crucial. As professionals in the field, let’s continue to explore its potential benefits while actively addressing the associated risks. Together, we can shape the future of AI in a responsible and ethical manner. 💪💡
