Sammanfattning

The recent open letter from the Future of Life Institute (FLI) calling for a pause on the development of AI systems has generated a significant amount of discussion. We argue that more significant action to address the potential dangers of large, generative models, requires increased efforts on AI governance, and research funding structures to build a sustainable basis for transparent research on the foundations and consequences of AI technologies and their societal applications. We believe that we should prioritize addressing the actual impact of AI and its current state, rather than causing alarm about theoretical risks associated with superintelligence or AGI. This requires multidisciplinary research on the impact of AI and autonomous systems bringing knowledge and expertise from the humanities and social sciences together with engineering and computer science. In Sweden, the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program – Humanities and Society (WASP-HS) is an example of such an effort.
