Sundar Pichai, CEO of Advertising Company Google, had some interesting things to say about the future of AI in an interview on 60 minutes this weekend. He basically stated that the world will be thoroughly AI-ified in a timeframe of “5 to 10 years,” and that every job you can think of is going to be affected by it.

He did go a little doom and gloom, basically stating that there are going to be negative consequences of AI - particularly in the areas of disinformation/bad information/fake news/and the like permeating society in a hurry.


He also said that society needs to adapt with regulations and laws, etc. Advertising Company Google also released a document outlining “Recommendations for Regulating AI” which I didn’t read because it sounds boring, but basically will outline governmental and societal best practices around AI. He’s trying to make it a full societal issue, saying “It’s not for a company to decide,” and “The development of this needs to include not just engineers but social scientists, ethicists, philosophers, and so on.”

Encouraging words at least.
