Godfather of AI, Hinton Quits Google and Warns about AI

Geoffrey Hinton

Geoffrey Hinton, known as the “Godfather of AI,” has expressed concerns about the future of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, as he departs from Google. Hinton is worried about the spread of false information and the impact of AI on jobs and possibly humanity itself. He believes that as AI begins to write and run its own code, it could become smarter than people. Hinton left Google after over 10 years, having sold his business to the company. He was honored with the 2018 Turing Award for his contributions to AI research. Google has responded by stating its commitment to a responsible approach to AI.
