OpenAI Chief Scientist: Should We Make Godlike AI That Loves Us, or Obeys Us?

A leading artificial intelligence expert is once again shooting from the hip in a cryptic Twitter poll.

In the poll, OpenAI chief scientist Ilya Sutskever asked his followers whether advanced super-AIs should be made “deeply obedient” to their human creators, or if these godlike algorithms should “truly deeply [love] humanity.”

In other words, he seems to be pondering whether we should treat superintelligences like pets — or the other way around. And that’s interesting, coming from the head researcher at the firm behind GPT-3 and DALL-E, two of the most impressive machine learning systems available today.
