Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has compared artificial intelligence to the atom bomb. He says AI is similar to Atombob’s creation. Speaking at the company’s annual meeting, Buffett talked about the advancement of AI technology and how AI can change the world. Buffett says AI can do everything in the world except men think and behave.
At the same time, sometimes AI is not able to tell jokes that make the audience laugh. It is true that there are some limitations. Buffett agrees. But its ability to achieve in all fields cannot be ignored. Buffett said he got the chance to use ChatGPT with the help of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
It was crucial to build the atomic bomb during World War II.

But the after effects were disastrous. Similarly, AI is poised to change everything except human thinking and behavior. He emphasizes the need to think about the long-term implications of AI rather than the short-term benefits.
Although it was good when the atom bomb was invented, the situation of the world in the next 200 years was not good. Buffett suggests that much the same situation will arise when artificial intelligence becomes widespread.
Many experts now have the same opinion. Stuart Russell, a British computer science professor, compares AI to the Chernobyl disaster. Russell claims that the creation of artificial intelligence can be a disaster if care is not taken. Russell has also signed a petition asking companies like OpenAI and Microsoft to stop developing AI models more advanced than GPT 4.
