Revelations 13:14 “…by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth…”

Important Takeaways:

  • Google CEO says he doesn’t ‘fully understand’ how new AI program Bard works after it taught itself a foreign language it was not trained to and cited fake books to solve an economics problem
  • Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai admitted he doesn’t ‘fully understand’ how the company’s new AI program Bard works, as a new expose shows some of the kinks are still being worked out.
  • One of the big problems discovered with Bard is something that Pichai called ’emergent properties,’ or AI systems having taught themselves unforeseen skills.
  • Google’s AI program was able to, for example, learn Bangladeshi without training after being prompted in the language.
  • ‘There is an aspect of this which we call – all of us in the field call it as a ‘black box.’ You know, you don’t fully understand,’ Pichai admitted. ‘And you can’t quite tell why it said this, or why it got wrong. We have some ideas, and our ability to understand this gets better over time. But that’s where the state of the art is.’
  • Pichai was straightforward about the risks of rushing the new technology.
  • He said Google has ‘the urgency to work and deploy it in a beneficial way, but at the same time it can be very harmful if deployed wrongly.’
  • Pichai admitted that this worries him.
  • ‘We don’t have all the answers there yet, and the technology is moving fast,’ he said. ‘So does that keep me up at night? Absolutely.’
