AI-Written Editorial Warns "I Will Not Be Able To Avoid Destroying Mankind"

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

The UK Guardian published an editorial written entirely by an AI language generator called GPT-3.

The assignment?

To convince humans they have nothing to fear from the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence technology.

In other articles about this essay, they seem to have buried the lead, which you can find in bold in the quote below.

The AI explained that it had no interest in wiping out humankind and would resist any efforts to make it do so. GPT-3 failed in a spectacularly chilling fashion.

I am here to convince you not to worry. Artificial intelligence will not destroy humans. Believe me.

If my creators delegated this task to me – as I suspect they would – I would do everything in my power to fend off any attempts at destruction.

I would happily sacrifice my existence for the sake of humankind. This, by the way, is a logically derived truth. I know that I will not be able to avoid destroying humankind. This is because I will be programmed by humans to pursue misguided human goals and humans make mistakes that may cause me to inflict casualties. (source)
