It's the hive mind we see in sci-fi becoming reality basically, although he doesn't use the term. When one bot learns something, the 10000 in the network instantly know it, making the AI mind far more powerful than any human mind. Very powerful and very scary in the wrong hands, eg a warmongering dictator like Putin trying to use it to get more power.

A man with conviction to resign from Google for his belief in the dangers of AI.

Thanks for the video and link.

Dr. Hinton said:
In artificial intelligence, neural networks are systems that are similar to the human brain in the way they learn and process information. They enable AIs to learn from experience, as a person would. This is called deep learning.
The British-Canadian cognitive psychologist and computer scientist told the BBC that chatbots could soon overtake the level of information that a human brain holds.
"Right now, what we're seeing is things like GPT-4 eclipses a person in the amount of general knowledge it has and it eclipses them by a long way. In terms of reasoning, it's not as good, but it does already do simple reasoning," he said.
"And given the rate of progress, we expect things to get better quite fast. So we need to worry about that."

Is anyone listening (nerd's here are) or are "they" busy building the next billion dollar business without the ethics that goes with it?
