Putin: Whoever leads in AI will rule the world
Russian President Vladimir Putin told students on Friday that whoever leads in artificial intelligence "will be the ruler of the world," per the AP.
Other remarks from Putin:
- Wars will be fought with drones, and "when one party's drones are destroyed by drones of another, it will have no other choice but to surrender."
- Russia will share AI information with other nations, because "it would be strongly undesirable if someone wins a monopolist position."
- AI development brings "colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now."
