Bill Gates: AI poses risks but is controllable, and is a "revolutionary innovation" comparable to the advent of PCs

On July 11, local time in the United States, Bill Gates published a blog post on his personal blog, expressing his views on the current development of artificial intelligence. The blog post is titled "AI Does Pose Risks, But They Are Controllable." Gates mentioned five major risks associated with AI as follows:

(1)AI-generated misinformation and deepfakes could be used to deceive the public.

(2)AI can automatically search for vulnerabilities in computer systems, significantly increasing the risk of cyberattacks.

(3)AI may take away people's jobs.

(4)AI systems can generate false information and exhibit biases.

(5)Using AI tools may mean that students are unable to learn basic skills such as essay writing, while also widening the educational achievement gap.
