• Bard technology, Google's alternative to ChatGPT, is now available in the US and UK

Many warn about the danger that artificial intelligence (AI) may have for the future and even the present. Experts around the world warn that the rapid development of these technologies without imposing limits can be dangerous. And it is not known how far their own capabilities can go.

The latest to be surprised has been Google's senior vice president of technology and society James Manyika. The executive has confessed that Bard, the Internet search giant's answer to the ChatGPT tool that Microsoft, has learned the Bengali language on its own and without having been prepared for it.

Manyika has assured during an interview in the program '60 minutes' of the CBS, that the 'chatbot' has been able to learn the language with only a few small instructions written in Bengali. Now Bard is able to translate this language.

To learn languages, these AIs use a complex algorithm that works very similarly to the human mind's ability to understand, so their learning closely resembles ours. The problem is that, as in the human mind, it is unknown what happens in the artificial mind after the process.

A group of entrepreneurs in the technology sector, experts and politicians, including the controversial entrepreneur Elon Musk, have requested in a letter of apocalyptic tone that experiments with very powerful artificial intelligences be suspended for six months because they consider that "they can pose profound risks to society and humanity".

"Society has paused other technologies with potentially catastrophic effects on society. We can do it here. Let's enjoy a long summer pause from AI and don't rush to fall unprepared," reads the open letter published by the nonprofit Future of Life Institute.

The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, the co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak, the American researchers Yoshua Bengio, Stuart Russel or the Spaniards Carles Sierra and Ramón López De Mantaras are some of the signatories of this open letter in which they warn of the supposed dangers of AI if it is not accompanied by proper management and planning.

"Advanced AI could represent a profound change in the history of life on earth, and should be planned and managed with the corresponding care and resources," says the letter, which also argues "that AI laboratories have engaged in an out-of-control race to develop and deploy increasingly powerful digital minds."

They even claim that "no one – not even their creators – can reliably understand, predict or control" these digital minds.
