Eric Schmidt: AI Guardrails “Aren’t Enough” To Prevent Harm To Humanity

  • November 29, 2023
Trilateral Commission member and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt is a master Technocrat in the truest sense of the word. He was one of the pioneers of AI at Google, the inventor of “Surveillance Capitalism,” and is now heir-apparent to fellow Trilateral Commissioner Henry Kissinger. Schmidt is the pied piper of AI, singing praises on the one hand while on the other warning of dire consequences to humanity. This is globalist snake-oil. ⁃ TN Editor

Guardrails AI companies add to their products to prevent them from causing harm “aren’t enough” to control AI capabilities that could endanger humanity within five to ten years, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt told Axios’ Mike Allen on Tuesday.

The big picture: Interviewed at Axios’ AI+ Summit in Washington, D.C., Schmidt compared the development of AI to the introduction of nuclear weapons at the end of the Second World War.

“After Nagasaki and Hiroshima, it took 18 years to get to a treaty over test bans and things like that. We don’t have that kind of time today,” Schmidt said.
The danger, he said, arrives at “the point at which the computer can start to make its own decisions to do things” — when, say, such a system discovers access to weapons, and we can’t be certain the system will tell us the truth.
Two years ago, that moment was expected to be 20 years off. Today, Schmidt said, some experts think it’s only two to four years away.

What’s next: Schmidt argued that the best solution is to create a global body akin to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to “feed accurate information to policymakers” so that they understand the urgency and can take action.

Of note: Schmidt said he’s optimistic that AI will offer wide benefit to vast human populations: “I defy you to argue that an AI doctor or an AI tutor is a negative. It’s got to be good for the world.”
