MIT Technology Review: The messy, secretive reality behind OpenAI’s bid to save the world

MIT Technology Review: The messy, secretive reality behind OpenAI’s bid to save the world . “The implication is that [Artificial General Intelligence] could easily run amok if the technology’s development is left to follow the path of least resistance. Narrow intelligence, the kind of clumsy AI that surrounds us today, has already served as an example. We now know that algorithms are biased and fragile; they can perpetrate great abuse and great deception; and the expense of developing and running them tends to concentrate their power in the hands of a few. By extrapolation, AGI could be catastrophic without the careful guidance of a benevolent shepherd. OpenAI wants to be that shepherd, and it has carefully crafted its image to fit the bill.” Deep, disturbing dive.
