deep concerns they share withme in our new series AI Revolutionrecent advances in artificialintelligence now available to the massesof both fascinated and enthralled manyAmericans but amid all the Wows over AIthere are some saying wait including apair of former Silicon Valley insiderswho are now warning tech companies theremay be no returning the AI Genie to thebottle I sat down with them for ourseries AI Revolutionit's hard to believe it's only been fourmonths since chat GPT launched kickingthe AI arms race into high gear that waslike firing the starting gun that nowall the other companies said well if wedon't also deploy we're going to losethe race to Microsoft Tristan Harris isGoogle's former design ethicist heco-founded the center for Humanetechnology with Azor Raskin both C andAI welcome possibilities what we want isAI that enriches our lives that ishelping us cure cancer that is helpingus find climate Solutions but will thenew AI arms race take us there or down adarker pass the race to deploy becomesthe race to recklessness because theycan't deploy it that quickly and alsoget it rightin the 2020 Netflix doc the socialdilemma they sounded the alarm on thedangers of social media we built thesethings and we have a responsibility tochange it but tonight they have an evenmore dire warning about ignoring thePerils of artificial intelligence itwould be the worst of all human mistakesto have ever been made and we literallydon't know how it works and we don'tknow all the things it will do and we'rewe're putting it out there before weactually know whether it's safe Raskinpoints to a recent survey of AIresearchers where nearly half said theybelieve there's at least a 10 percentchance AI could eventually result in anextremely bad outcome like humanextinction where do you come down onthat I don't know the the point itscares me you don't know yeah wellhere's here's the point like it's it'simagine you're about to get on anairplane and 50 of the engineers thatbuilt the airplane say there's a 10chance that the airplane might crash andkill everyone leave me at the gate rightexactly AI tools can already mimicvoices Ace exams create art and diagnosediseases and they're getting smarterevery day in two years by the time ofthe election human beings will not beable to tell the difference between whatis real and what is fake who's buildingthe guardrails here no one is buildingthe guardrails this has moved so muchfaster than our government has been ableto understand or appreciate it'simportant to note the CEOs of the majorAI Labs they've all said we do need toregulate AI there's always that notionthat well maybe these companies canpolice themselves does that work nono self-policing doesn't work no itcannot work but doesn't a personultimately control it can I simply justpull the plug unfortunately this isbeing decentralized into more and morehands so that technology isn't just runinside of one company that you can justsay I want to pull the plug on Googlealso think about how hard it would be topull the plug on Google or pull the plugon Microsoft so what would you tell aCEO of a Silicon Valley company rightnow and yeah you don't want to be lastbut can you take a pause I mean is thatrealistic no it you're right it's notrealistic to ask one company what weneed to do is get those companies haveto come together in a constructivepositive dialogue about think of it likeyou know the nuclear Test Ban Treatyright we cut all the nations togethersaying can we agree we don't want todeploy nukes above ground the stakesthey say are impossibly high but whenwe're in an arms race to deploy AI toevery human being on the planet as fastas possible with as little testing aspossible that's not an equation that'sgoing to end wellwe reached out to some of the companiesin the Forefront of AI developmentMicrosoft told us AI has the potentialto help solve some of Humanity's biggestproblems and they believe it's
