Some of its dangers include the disparition of jobs and data breaches. Both things have been discussed by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and billionaire Elon Musk at a summit in November 2023. It is important to use AI responsibly and follow ethical guidelines to counteract possible negative consequences and use its potential to improve quality of life.
That is not what is currently happening in Russia. Indeed, an AI system has now emerged that shows Vladimir Putin in an unpleasant way... specifically the President is shown naked. According to German publication news.de, developers of a Russian chatbot called 'Kandinsky' have added a naked function specifically to generate nude photos of Vladimir Putin.
This might initially make people laugh, but it has serious consequences for those responsible, who also developed the Russian ChatGPT competitor GigaChat. The authorities have summoned them for questioning.
The accusation is that the naked pictures of Vladimir Putin convey a 'negative image of the country', news.de continues. What happens next to the AI developers remains to be seen. The Russian government is likely to agree with Elon Musk in this regard.
According to Handelsblatt, Muskmade critical comments about AI systems and said that they could be the 'most likely trigger for a third world war'. As reported by news.de, the function for generating nude images of Putin has now been switched off in Russia.
