Experts Terrified by Mark Zuckerberg's Human-Tier AI Plans

Foreboding Last week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that he’s going to purchase hundreds of thousands of expensive AI processing chips — and experts are mighty worried about what he plans to use them for. In the same Instagram post announcing his planned purchase of 350,000 Nvidia’s H100 graphics chips, which average about $30,000 apiece and are considered the gold standard for powering AI models, Zuckerberg said that he wants to build an open-source artificial AGI, the industry term for the point at which AI reaches or even surpasses human-level intelligence. While there’s still an open debate about whether AGI is even possible, the prospect itself is enough to give some researchers pause. “The thought of open source AGI being released before we have worked out how to regulate these very powerful AI systems is really very scary,” Dame Wendy Hall, a computer scientist at the University of Southampton in England and a member of the United Nations’ AI advisory board, told The Guardian. “In the wrong hands technology like this could do a great deal of harm. It is so irresponsible for a company to suggest it.” AGI is likely still “many years away,” Hall added, which gives society time to get a regulatory framework in order. Nevertheless, “it is a matter of public safety that we progress this work with some urgency,” she said.
