  The team at OpenAI, creators of ChatGPT, says that they expect Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems with superhuman intelligence to emerge in about 10 years. According to them, this offers opportunities for tremendous growth and problem-solving. But it also poses risks, such as the danger that such AI systems may be difficult to manage and ‘align’ to optimal human interests.

Given this challenge, OpenAI is calling on AI and Machine Learning (ML) teams to propose and develop ways to align future Artificial Super-Intelligence and enable humans to track and trust advanced AI systems. It is offering grants to support research into ‘superalignment’, and looking to hear from research teams that can work or are working on this project.
