The development and use of artificial intelligence (AI) systems are raising concerns among experts and intellectuals, including Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and Yuval Noah Harari. In a letter signed by multiple individuals from various fields, they call for a halt to the development of advanced AI systems, citing the risks of propaganda and untruths flooding information channels, the automation of jobs, the development of non-human minds that could replace humans, and the danger of losing control of civilization. These concerns have resulted in calls for regulatory measures and investigations into companies like OpenAI. However, addressing the challenges posed by AI requires not just legal and regulatory instruments but also stronger cultural and critical education.
