Sam Altman’s solution: would it work?
Fears about the possibility of a catastrophic event triggered by technology and artificial intelligence have gained strength in recent months. And following the principle of prevention rather than regret, Sam Altman, the creator of ChatGPT, claims to have the solution.
Following the example of the nuclear briefcases that the presidents of the United States possess, which contain the codes to launch nuclear weapons, Sam has a ” nuclear backpack “.
This blue backpack from the ChatGPT leader could house an Apple MacBook and possibly have the ability to disable the servers that host his Artificial Intelligence.
The Gearrice and Applesfera sites have echoed this fact. In an interview with Business Insider, Altman admitted that he doesn’t want AI to be the cause of the beginning of the end of the world.
“I worry, of course. I mean, I worry a lot about it,” Altman said.
Therefore, it’s not unreasonable for him to have a fallback plan in case of an AI rebellion and that blue backpack represents his response.
This individual takes prevention to another level. In 2016, in an interview with The New Yorker, he shared that he had prepared “weapons, gold, potassium iodide, antibiotics, batteries, water, gas masks from the Israel Defense Army and extensive property in the South to which he could move”.
According to Business Insider, at the beginning of the confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic, he admitted to having isolated himself with his family, even carrying out the disinfection of his fresh products.
Will there come a time when the world depends on its “nuclear backpack”?
