In a current United Nations meeting about emerging global risks, political representatives from around the world were cautioned about the dangers posed by artificial intelligence and other future technologies.
The event, organized by Georgia’s UN representatives and the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), was set up to foster debate about the national and international security risks posed by new technologies, including chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) materials.
The panel was also treated to a special conversation on the possible dangers raised by artificial superintelligence—that is, AI whose abilities greatly surpass those of humans. The goal of the meeting, held on October 14, was to debate the effects of developing technologies, and how to proactively mitigate the risks.
