Snoop Dogg has remarked that advances in artificial intelligence remind him of movies he used to watch as a child.
Snoop Dogg, an American musician, expressed uncertainty over recent advances in artificial intelligence, comparing the technology to movies he witnessed as a youngster.
Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, spoke on artificial intelligence while addressing the Writers Guild of America’s strike at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills this week. The authors’ strike is motivated in part by the possibility of artificial intelligence taking over writing employment.
“I got a motherf—ing AI right now that they did made for me,” Snoop said. “This n—– could communicate with me.” I’m like, geez, this thing can really conduct a conversation? As in, real for real? It’s like it’s blowing my head since I used to watch movies on this as a child.”
Snoop also mentioned Geoffrey Hinton’s latest cautions about artificial intelligence, who just left Google to debate the dangers of AI.
“And I heard the old dude who invented AI say, ‘This is not safe, because the AIs have their own minds, and these mother—ers are going to start doing their own s—.'” I’m thinking, are we in an f—ing movie right now? “Who the f–k?”
AI IS CLOSE TO BEING SMARTER THAN US, SAYS ‘GODFATHER OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE,’ COULD END HUMANITY
Hinton, known as the “Godfather of AI,” told the New York Times that he fears bad actors would utilize artificial intelligence platforms, which his research helped establish, for malicious ends.
And, although Snoop raised worries about artificial intelligence, he also questioned whether he should invest in it.
“Do I need to invest in AI in order to have one with me?” Or, like, do you know? What the f— is going on? “I’m lost, I’m not sure,” Snoop said, eliciting laughs from the crowd.
ChatGPT’s introduction last year prompted both enthusiasm and anxiety among experts, who think the technology would transform business and human connections.
In March, thousands of industry executives and professionals, including Musk, signed an open petition urging artificial intelligence laboratories to halt development on systems more powerful than GPT-4, OpenAI’s most advanced AI system. According to the letter, “AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity.”
