Buterin on Thursday called for more eyes on the problem of "unfriendly AI risk," which he sees as the “biggest thing” to potentially derail humanity over the next one or two centuries.
Buterin shared a paper by AI theorist and writer Eliezer Yudkowsky that made a case for why the current research community isn’t doing enough to prevent a potential future catastrophe at the hands of artificially generate intelligence.
When one of Buterin’s Twitter followers suggested that World War 3 is likely a bigger risk at the moment, the Ethereum co-founder disagreed.
At the forefront of AI innovation are companies like Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) developing a humanoid robot Optimus, which CEO Elon Musk has said is the most important product the company is working on, even above its EV car business.
“The importance of Optimus will become apparent in the coming years,” Musk had said.
