Artificial intelligence has a one in four chance of wiping out humanity, a leading tech boss warned.

Dario Amodei, of AI researchers Anthropic, said the technology would destroy the world by either going rogue or by being abused by humans. 

He added: ‘[The] chance something goes catastrophically wrong on the scale of human civilisation might be 10 to 25 per cent.’

But he told the Logan Bartlett Show tech podcast: ‘If we can avoid the downsides then this stuff about curing cancer, extending human lifespan, solving problems like mental illness… I don’t think it’s outside the scope of what this can do.’
