The field of artificial intelligence is one of vast extremes. While on one hand, companies like Google and Microsoft are rolling out AI products almost every day, on the other hand, there are major protests that want to stop the rise of AI. And these protests have involved prominent AI researchers including the father of AI, Geoffrey Hinton, and the man who started the AI craze, Sam Altman, founder and CEO of OpenAI. In a development of the protests, today China also called for safeguards against AI while highlighting its risks.
