Response to AI Art

Jyo John Mulloor’s AI-generated images of celebrities cooking and serving iftar in Dubai have gained immense popularity on social media due to their realistic and visually appealing nature.

Concerns of Google CEO 

During an interview with CBS 60 Minutes, Google CEO Sundar Pichai expressed his concerns about the use of generative AI tools and their impact on national security. He emphasised the importance of creating a responsible AI framework to regulate its use and ensure that it benefits society. Pichai acknowledged the potential of AI to revolutionise industries and create new opportunities, but warned that it could also be used maliciously, such as in cyberattacks or the development of autonomous weapons. Therefore, he suggested that countries may need to sign treaties to regulate the use of AI and prevent it from posing a threat to national security.
