Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun, three computer scientists and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers, were jointly awarded the 2018 Turing Prize for their contributions to deep learning, a subfield of AI. I will here introduce them, to then present how different their reactions were to the open letter that many scientists and influential people signed asking to slow down the development of models beyond GPT-4, in a quest to anticipate and mitigate all the problems associated to such “smart” natural language processing (NLP) and generalistic (AGI) systems.
Hinton, a British-Canadian computer scientist and cognitive psychologist, is considered… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
