AI to become self aware is the topic of sci-fi movies, yet we are heading to a future where it is becoming possible. Google DeepMind's chief Demis Hassabis has said “there's a possibility” of artificial intelligence gaining self awareness “one day”. “Philosophers haven't really settled on a definition of consciousness yet but if we mean by sort of self-awareness, these kinds of things, I think there's a possibility AI one day could be,” Mr Hassabis said in an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes.

While AI systems are “definitely” not sentient today, according to the Deepmind chief, he said “it is one of the fascinating scientific things we're going to find out on this journey”. Experts claim that because AI is created by human, they will not rebel against human kind while others think the future might be really different when AI becomes self aware. Whether there will be threats or not AI gets stronger day by day. Remember ChatGPT tried to hack a computer to escape.
