Mr. Altman stressed that regulatory authorities and the public must be involved in the development of this technology to protect against possible negative consequences for humanity.

“We have to be careful here,” Altman told ABC News on Thursday, “I think people should be happy that we’re a little bit afraid of it.”

“I’m particularly concerned that these models could be used for large-scale disinformation,” Altman said, “Now that they’re getting better at writing computer code, [jie] can be used for offensive cyber-attacks”.

But despite the dangers, he said, it could also be “the best technology that mankind has yet created.”

The warning came as OpenAI released the latest version of its language artificial intelligence model, GPT-4, less than four months after the original release, which became the fastest-growing consumer program in history.

In an interview, the AI ​​engineer said that while the new version is “not perfect,” it scored 90 percent on the U.S. bar exams. scores, and scored nearly perfect on the high school SAT math test.

The fear is that artificial intelligence will replace humans. However, S. Altman pointed out that artificial intelligence works only under human guidance.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, one of the first investors in OpenAI when it was a for-profit company, has repeatedly warned that artificial intelligence is more dangerous than a nuclear weapon.
