U.K. computer scientist and 2019 ACM A.M. Turing Award recipient Geoffrey Hinton said advanced artificial intelligence (AI), for all its promise, could conceivably take over.
In a "60 Minutes" interview, Hinton said AI systems are intelligent, capable of comprehension, and can make experiential decisions in the same sense that humans do; achieving self-awareness is only a matter of time, effectively making AI more intelligent than humans.
Hinton and collaborators Yann LeCun and Yoshua Bengio created a neural network to learn by trial and error, strengthening connections that lead to correct outcomes.
He suggested modern AI systems can learn better than the human mind despite having fewer connections, even though their exact inner workings are unknown.
Hinton urges experiments to improve our understanding of how the technology works, as well as government regulation, and a worldwide ban on the use of military robots.
