Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates commented petition of IT professionals to ban the training of complex artificial intelligence like GPT-3 and GPT-4. This petition was supported by Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak.

Gates told Reuters that the petition’s demand to stop the development of AI because it could lead humanity to lose “control of civilization” is utopian.

I really cannot understand to whom exactly the appeal of the authors of this letter is directed. In addition, it is very difficult for me to imagine how every country in the world can stop their research, and most importantly, why they should suddenly do it.

However, Gates agrees that researchers should identify potential risks when using artificial intelligence.

Recall, computer scientist Jeffrey Hinton, who is considered the “godfather of artificial intelligence” warns of the danger of uncontrolled development of AI.
