In my view, it’s time to slow down and or even “pause” AI development. The tech has progressed exponentially in just the last year, and shows no sign of slowing down or reaching a plateau. As a result, it is outpacing our ability to understand, align, and adapt to it. I signed the Future of Life Institute letter six months ago.
I am fortunate to be working with a very talented team of expert bioinformaticians, researchers, and programmers. I have a lot to learn about my new field, but I’m enthusiastic about the challenge and looking forward to participating in the fast-moving and cutting-edge research at the nexus of computer science, data analysis, genetics, and biology.
