Is there a desire to centralize authority in artificial intelligence?

Üsküdar University Artificial Intelligence Engineering Master's Program Head of Department Dr. Lecturer. Prof. Dr. Nuri Bingöl made statements on how rapidly developing artificial intelligence technologies should be controlled nationally and globally, what kind of limits should be imposed and what obstacles are in front of all these.It is time to use knowledge in a way that maximizes the benefits of artificial intelligenceStating that in addition to the many positive potentials of artificial intelligence, it is important not to ignore the potential for threat or danger, Dr. Lecturer. Prof. Dr. Nuri Bingöl said, "Humanity is experienced in this issue and should quickly translate this experience into practice. We have learned a lot from the positive or negative consequences of previous revolutionary technological developments. It is high time to use this knowledge to maximize the benefits of artificial intelligence."There is disagreement on how to exercise control over artificial intelligenceStating that many authorities who shape today's societies with their thoughts and even people who play an important role in the development of artificial intelligence share similar thoughts, Bingöl said, "The extraordinary development of artificial intelligence in the last few years and the results in the fields where it is used show that the development of artificial intelligence technology should be subject to some regulations and controls. The differences of opinion are not on this issue, but on 'how this supervision will be implemented'."Measures vary depending on which phase will be inspectedReferring to the reasons why the discussions and disagreements are concentrated on how the audit will be implemented, Bingöl explained these reasons as follows: "Artificial intelligence technologies are a formidable power, and there are problems with concentrating this power in the hands of only one institution. These technologies are inherently a two-stage product. The first is to develop the capacity of artificial intelligence and the second is to use it for a specific purpose. Which of these two phases should be controlled or limited? Which phase poses more potential threats or dangers? Naturally, the measures that can be taken vary according to the answer to this question. The question of 'how to implement it' takes on a different meaning."Excessive control and limitation of technology leads to diminishing benefitsDrawing attention to the level of control and limitation of artificial intelligence, Bingöl said, "It should not be forgotten that excessive control and limitation on technology leads to a decrease in the benefits arising from the development of that technology. However, there are great existential problems in front of humanity and artificial intelligence technologies have great potential in these issues." Bingöl quoted Andrew Ng, a prominent figure in the field of artificial intelligence, as saying, "When I think about the existential risks for a large part of humanity: The next pandemic, climate change and the resulting mass depopulation, another asteroid threat... Artificial intelligence will be an important part of our solutions. So if we want humanity to survive and thrive for the next thousand years, let's make AI work faster, not slower.
