Geoffrey Hinton is a legend in the A.I. world. He is not only having negative thoughts about what he has invented, but he is doing a complete reversal, saying that A.I. has the potential to destroy civilization and in multiple ways. He joins other top computer scientists in trying to slow down development and put guard rails up on how A.I. should be used.⁃ TN Editor

The ‘Godfather of Artificial Intelligence‘ has sensationally resigned from Google and warned the technology could upend life as we know it.

Geoffrey Hinton, 75, is credited with creating the technology that became the bedrock of A.I. systems like ChatGPT and Google Bard.

But the Turing prize winner now says a part of him regrets helping to make the systems, that he fears could prompt the proliferation of misinformation and replace people in the workforce.

He said he had to tell himself excuses like ‘if I didn’t build it, someone else would have’ to prevent himself from being overwhelmed by guilt.

He drew comparisons with the ‘father of the atomic bomb’ Robert Oppenheimer, who was reportedly distraught by his invention and dedicated the rest of his life to stopping its proliferation.

Geoffrey Hinton, 75, who is credited as the ‘Godfather of Artificial Technology’, said that a part of him now regrets helping to make the systems.

There is a great AI divide in Silicon Valley. Brilliant minds are split about the progress of the systems – some say it will improve humanity and others fear the technology will destroy it

Speaking to the New York Times about his resignation, he warned that in the near future, A.I. would flood the internet with false photos, videos and texts.

These would be of a standard, he added, where the average person would ‘not be able to know what is true anymore’.

The technology also posed a serious risk to ‘drudge’ work, he said, and could upend the careers of people working as paralegals, personal assistants and translators.

Some workers already say they are using it to cover multiple jobs for them, undertaking tasks such as creating marketing materials and transcribing Zoom meetings so that they do not have to listen.

‘Maybe what is going on in these systems, is actually a lot better than what is going on in the [human] brain,’ he said, explaining his fears.

‘The idea that this stuff could actually get smarter than people — a few people believed that.

‘But most people thought it was way off. And I thought it was way off. I thought it was 30 to 50 years or even longer away.

‘Obviously, I no longer think that.’

This is interesting, The first group coming out against AI were the tech billionaires like Musk and others. They seemed legitimately worried about AI and the its rapid advancement. However. they stand to make billions more from it. And now Hinton resigns from Google. Somethin’ just ain’t right. They know something the public doesn’t know. Musk controls the stars with all of his satellites and rockets. That bothers me. He could be “Skynet”.


Do you suppose they want to blame AI for the stuff they’ll be pulling?
“Don’t blame me. It was Skynet’s idea.”


ABSOLUTELY. Point received. The UN/WEF/WHO criminals intend just that (read Whitney Webb: One Nation Under Blackmail). The criminal sect are gearing up with AI to say: “Oh! I wasn’t us. We have no control over that. It was the AI authority (that we created, established, supported and installed). We have to do what it says now cause it’s the law”. They killers are transparent. If forced kill-shots didn’t wake up the sleepers to the true intentions of these sick, murderous globalists’ using the banner of the UN/WEF/WHO to hide behind who went from ‘Safe and effective forced injections OR no… Read more »


AI would be able to steal code, spark wars, and start pandemics. Looks like the technocrats will be out of a job.


NOW he’s sorry? As weak and evil men always, always repeat to themselves and to the public afterward in their so-called remorse, “If I didn’t do it someone else would.” WEAK AS WATER. He’s still RICH from his participation. Evil begets evil, buddy. Yes, Oppenheimer was your example, but you ignored the history lesson, developed the beast and made your fortune riding the coattails of evil. I get that anything/everything that falls into the laps of the UN’s criminal cartel of globalists gets weaponized against humanity. But YOU KNEW all the while and still continued to push the envelope. Where… Read more »

Absolutely. AND this very fact is why the criminal globalists and their minions are so very dangerous. When the errors, failures and crashes occur, hackability will be their mealy-mouthed ‘excuse’ for the failures. They never own their sh*t. They can’t. Even they know it’s evil stuff. Hence, it’s someone else’s fault always in the vein of the last 16-yrs of “Russia did it.”!
