Geoffrey Hinton left Google before I/O 2023

Recently, the godfather of AI, Geoffrey Hinton, left his job at Google to talk independently about the dangers of artificial intelligence without hurting Google in any way. Microsoft is investing heavily in the industry, and Hinton believes this competition might bring the end of humanity.

"The idea that this stuff could actually get smarter than people — a few people believed that. But most people thought it was way off. And I thought it was way off. I thought it was 30 to 50 years or even longer away. Obviously, I no longer think that" he said in an interview. With Google's work in the field, the competition with Microsoft and other companies will get bigger in the near future.
