Call for contributions
In recent years, the field of artificial intelligence has witnessed remarkable advancements. While these developments are celebrated by many, there is a growing concern among some experts who believe that the emergence of unaligned AI could potentially pose significant, even existential, risks. On the contrary, other scholars take a more cautious stance, asserting that current AI systems remain distant from achieving the goal of general AI.
