Humanity’s Biggest Gamble


Roman Yampolskiy

AI safety pioneer Roman Yampolskiy believes that artificial intelligence presents a challenge unlike anything humanity has ever faced. He says we have just one chance to get it right. A single AI model can cause an existential crisis, and there are already more than 500,000 open source AI models available. In his view, the AI arms race is creating an infinite range of possibilities for catastrophe. Roman returns to The Futurists to share perspectives from his new book, AI: Unexplainable, Unpredictable, Uncontrollable, delivering a devastating critique of the current state of safety in AI and an urgent call to action.
