Throughout this year, AI technology has been a widely discussed topic in the news. While some individuals voice concerns about its potential dangers, others praise its numerous benefits. In some cases, open letters have been written to halt AI research, while in others, experts predict its promising future. Recently, the CEO of Google DeepMind made a significant statement regarding the future of AI.

AI bots have become a hot topic in the news at the start of 2023. Despite discussions about artificial intelligence having taken place for a long time, the introduction of ChatGPT has sparked increased interest in the subject. There are now a growing number of AI bots gaining recognition, such as Notion, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, and others.

The conversation around artificial intelligence has shifted from its quality to concerns over its rapid development, with fears that it may surpass human intelligence in strength, wisdom, and self-reliance. One of the most significant developments being discussed is the ability for AI to understand human-like concepts.

Recently, Demis Hassabis, CEO of Google DeepMind, discussed the future of AI in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. Hassabis predicts that AI will achieve a level of understanding and knowledge comparable to humans within the next five years. Additionally, he anticipates that the pace of AI research will continue to accelerate in the coming years.

Hassabis also expressed amazement at the pace of AI development in recent years, stating that he sees no reason for a slowdown in progress. In fact, he believes that the development will continue to accelerate in the future. Hassabis commented, "I don't see any reason why progress would slow down. I think it will only accelerate."

The AI community is currently engaged in discussions regarding Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Recently, Geoffrey Hinton, known as the Godfather of AI, resigned from Google and issued warnings about potential dangers associated with AI. Hinton expressed his concerns in an interview, stating that AI chatbots will soon surpass the level of human understanding and emphasizing the possibility of AI being used for harmful purposes.

Hinton went on to explain that in a negative environment, if a malevolent individual grants autonomy to AI robots to decide their own goals, they may set objectives aimed at increasing their own power. This scenario is one of Hinton's worries concerning AI.
