10/16 debate on most immediate, and potentially catastrophic, risks posed by AI? According to pioneering AI researcher, Dr. Fei-Fei Li, they include disinformation, polarization, biases, a loss of privacy and job losses that could lead to unrest
- my view I believe strongly all of us, especially those creating, deploying, and making decisions using AI, should work to ensure a human-centered approach. I know it's hard — I feel the challenges as an AI technologist, a woman of color, and an immigrant every day. But I wrote my book worlds i see for the younger generations, and we need to continue to inspire hope for all of them.

LI on NPR
https://www.npr.org/2023/11/10/1198908536/fei-fei-li-the-worlds-i-s... Li was fascinated by vision.
"Rather than bury us in the innumerable details of light, color and form, vision turns our world into the kind of discrete concepts we can describe with words," she writes in her book.
Li later learned about a field of AI called computer vision, or the way scientists train computers to recognize and respond to objects. It's used for things like self-driving cars and x-rays. Li says the process is inspired by the human visual system – but instead of eyes and retinas, computers use cameras and sensors to capture images and data. Then, they need to make sense of that data.
To achieve this goal, computer scientists use something called a neural network, which Li says is also inspired by the human brain. While the brain's fundamental unit is a neuron, neural networks are made of millions of "nodes" stacked together in layers. Like neurons in the brain, these layers of nodes take in and process that data.
Despite advances in the field, Li says there are still mysteries about how AI learns.
"Now everybody uses powerful AI products like Chat GPT," she says. "But even there, how come it can talk to you in human-like language, but it does stupid errors in math?"
Li says this generation of AI models is trained on data from across the internet, but how all of that data is processed and how models make decisions is still unknown.
To illustrate this point, she rhetorically asks how computers see, "Because what you get in a photo are just lights and colors and shades — yet you read out a cat."
These questions will only continue to grow as the use of AI becomes more widespread and more researchers enter the field.
Mystery aside, Li says AI can be used for bad or good. In order to ensure it's used for good, she says scientists must commit to exploring potential problems with AI, like bias.
One solution, she thinks, is for society to start coming up with ways to regulate the technology.
"The biggest issue of today's AI is that the technology is developing really fast, but the governance model is still incomplete. And in a way, it's inevitable," she says. "I don't think we ever create governance models before a technology is ready to be governed. That's just not how our society works."
One solution, she says, is to use AI to enhance human work rather than replace it. This is one reason why she founded the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence and why she thinks the future of AI should include both scientists and non-scientists from all disciplines.
"We should put humans in the center of the development, as well as the deployment applications and governance of AI," Li says.
