Sign today to eliminate the real risks of artificial intelligence, before superintelligent AI turns into an uncontrollable threat to humanity!

We, the undersigned, are a collective of concerned individuals, parents, professionals, and citizens from diverse backgrounds, united in our call for an immediate and proactive ban on the creation of uncontrollable superintelligent AI. Our concerns are not just theoretical; they are deeply personal and rooted in a vision for a future where humanity thrives alongside technology, not in its shadow.

(Please scroll to the end of this AI Safety petition for other commonly used synonyms for ‘superintelligent AI.’).

Personal and Collective Concerns

We, as concerned individuals dedicated to protecting our families and communities, are deeply troubled by the direction in which certain AI leaders and decision-makers are heading. The pursuit of superintelligent AI, with the potential end goal being humanity's submission to the rise of machines, is not the future we envision for our children and future generations. It is imperative we create a world where all generations can thrive without the fear of superintelligent AI threatening humanity’s indefinite economic uselessness, and even the replacement of humanity as a species.

What is Artificial Superintelligence?

Artificial superintelligence refers to a computer-based intellect that vastly outsmarts the best human brains in every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom, and social skills. The creation of such an entity poses huge, unpredictable risks, making it a gamble with humanity's future that we cannot afford to take.

Artificial Intelligence companies are racing to create superintelligent AI. Leading the pack is OpenAI (the creator of ChatGPT), which has the mission of creating “highly autonomous systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work.” Meta (formerly Facebook) wants to go one irresponsible step further, and plans to create and release such superintelligent systems to be downloadable by essentially everyone with an Internet connection: including potential criminals, terrorists, and rogue nation-states.

Given the nuanced discussions around the current versions of AI and their uncontrollability due to the sheer complexity of the comprising neural networks, many leading AI scientists have highlighted the immense challenges in aligning such powerful systems with human values.

This raises a critical question: why pursue the development of superintelligent AI, which promises even greater intelligence and autonomy, without a clear solution to ensure it can be controlled and aligned with human values? The risk of superintelligent AI acting autonomously, potentially in ways that could threaten human existence, underscores the urgency of this petition.

Rationale for the Ban

[1] AI-Driven Human Extinction Risk

Professor Geoffrey Hinton is the most-cited AI researcher of all time. He won the Turing Award for pioneering the AI method of deep learning. While Professor Hinton used to work on such AI systems at Google, he left the company in order to warn about the dangers posed by the very AI technology he pioneered.As Professor Hinton warns, the scientific problem of how to control superintelligent AI remains unsolved. AI has a black box problem, where its internal decision-making processes are opaque, even to its human creators, monitors, and auditors.Professor Hinton also warned that the unregulated advancement of superintelligent AI harbors potential existential risks to humanity. The intelligence of these systems could surpass human understanding, leading to unpredictable and uncontrollable outcomes.

[2] Economic and Societal Disruption

According to estimates from Goldman Sachs, two-thirds of all jobs in the United States will be at least partly affected by Generative AI (with 25% - 50% of their tasks potentially being automated). AI technologies, while beneficial in some areas, pose a significant risk to the job market, with the potential to automate tasks performed by human workers across numerous sectors.The shift towards uncontrolled automation powered by superintelligent AI could lead to an unprecedented risk of mass unemployment, and potentially even indefinite human economic uselessness.

[3] Threat to Human Autonomy and Privacy

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, has emphasized the urgent need for a moratorium on AI systems that pose serious risks to human rights. This stance highlights a critical aspect of superintelligent AI's impact: the potential significant infringement on privacy and other fundamental rights.Superintelligent AI, capable of vast data analysis and autonomous decision-making, raises serious concerns about the potential for misuse in surveillance and data manipulation, thereby posing alarming threats to individual privacy and autonomy.

[4] Proliferation of Synthetic Media

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres warns of acceleration of misinformation and disinformation, which could deepen global inequalities and undermine trust in institutions, weaken social cohesion, and threaten democracy.The flooding of the internet with AI-generated synthetic media – including false photos, videos, and texts – can distort reality and truth, exacerbating the challenges of misinformation and its profound societal impact.

[5] Militarization and Autonomous Weapons

The United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has raised alarms about the "Third Revolution" in warfare introduced by Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS), placing them in the same transformative category as nuclear weapons.The development of autonomous weapons systems, often termed 'killer robots', presents a dire threat to global peace and security. The prospect of AI-driven warfare necessitates immediate preventive measures.

[6] Misalignment with Human Values

The rapid pace of AI development, especially led by followers of the pro-human-replacement cult "Effective Accelerationism" (e/acc) who are backed by uber-wealthy and uber-connected AI industry leaders, overlooks the vital importance of aligning AI with human values, threatening mass human job loss to AI and even the potential replacement of humanity as a species.

Call to Action

Global Moratorium: We call for a global moratorium on the development of superintelligent AI. The moratorium should be indefinite, and end only when the requisite safety and ethics standards — specifically, standards that have been scientifically demonstrated to ensure that such systems will be controllable and act in humanity’s best interest — are successfully formulated and adopted.Pro-human AI Development: We advocate for AI technologies that align with human moral values, ensuring they serve the common good and respect human dignity.Transparency and Accountability: We demand strict guidelines for transparency in AI development, with accountability mechanisms for developers and corporations.Public Discourse: We call for informed public discourse, ensuring that diverse stakeholder voices are considered in shaping the future of AI.International Collaboration: We emphasize the need for international collaboration to address AI's challenges cohesively.

We implore leaders and decision-makers to heed this call for action. The future world faced by our children and our children’s children may very well depend on the choices we make today: choices regarding the development and deployment of superintelligent AI.

Sign the Petition to Secure a Safe Future for Your Loved Ones

Our call for action is driven by a commitment to safeguard our shared future, ensuring that technological advancements serve to enhance, rather than threaten, human life.

By signing this petition, you join a global movement advocating for a pro-human approach to AI development. Together, we can ensure that regulations are put in place to protect future generations from the potential perils of superintelligent AI.

The potential risks associated with superintelligent AI are too great and we must take action now before it's too late. We need regulations in place that ban the creation of uncontrollable superintelligent AI for ensuring humanity’s safety and security: for our generation, our children’s generation, and their children’s generation.
