🍌 AI Will Destroy the World – But Can’t Draw a Single Banana

radical Learning Partner Jason Whyte brought my attention to a Guardian article boldly proclaiming the five ways AI will destroy humanity and liking AI to a new, more intelligent species. On the other hand, as Daniel Hook, CEO of AI company Digital Science, points out in a recent blog post, AI can’t even draw a singular banana (it can draw two at a time but has some real issues imagining a banana on its own). Maybe AI doesn’t care about bananas and our desire to have a single one instead of a pair – and maybe the end of the world doesn’t need bananas at all… but somehow, this doesn’t quite look like a hyper-intelligent new species.
