IEA Director of Communications and Public Policy Matthew Lesh has written in City A.M. discussing the fear mongering regarding the development of AI and its potential consequences.

Matthew wrote:

“AI developers and experts are urging policymakers to follow their regulatory diktats to ensure the survival of humanity.

“Despite the narrative of woes, ChatGPT is already providing every writer with a personal research assistant, students with a knowledgeable tutor, and even saving animals’ lives. In March, the chatbot diagnosed a blood condition in a dog missed even by vets. A study released in April found that ChatGPT provides better quality written medical advice and even demonstrates greater empathy than human doctors.”

“The technology will undeniably be disruptive and exploited by bad actors – just like the printing press, the Industrial Revolution or the internet. That doesn’t mean we should throw the baby out with the bathwater. We must not base policy on dystopian sci-fi movies. There are a lack of plausible scenarios for a computer system, even one as powerful as AI, to end humanity.”
