Stuart Russell, a British AI expert and author, attended the AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva to discuss the challenges of AI and how to regulate it.

Russell believes AI should focus on its potential to do good for humanity and fill the gaps humans cannot. Russell emphasizes the need to rethink work and education in the face of AI, as it threatens certain white-collar jobs and may disrupt the current education-work model.

He suggests considering a basic income for those whose work is no longer needed due to AI. Russell highlights the importance of regulation and believes that governments need to act quickly to ensure the safety of AI systems.
