Vitalik Buterin: A Hostile AI Worse Than WWIII – Ethereum (ETH/USD)

This article was originally published on June 9, 2022.

Ethereum ETH/USD Creator Vitalik Buterin believes that hostile artificial intelligence (AI) poses the greatest risk to humanity.

What happened: Buterin on Thursday, June 9, called for more attention to the problem of “hostile AI risk,” which he sees as the “biggest thing” that could derail humanity in the next one or two centuries.

Buterin shared an article by an AI theorist and writer Eliezer Yudkowsky it showed why the current research community is not doing enough to prevent potential future catastrophe at the hands of artificially generating intelligence.

When one of Buterin’s Twitter followers suggested World War III was likely a bigger risk right now, the Ethereum co-founder disagreed.

At the forefront of AI innovation are companies like You’re here develop a humanoid robot Optimus, what CEO Elon Musk said it’s the most important product the company is working on, even above its electric car business.

“The importance of Optimus will become evident in the years to come,” Musk had said.
