AI 'godfather' Geoffrey Hinton warns of dangers as he quits Google

Geoffrey Hinton, aged 75, announced his resignation from Google in a statement to the New York Times, saying he now regretted his work.

And in a BBC interview on Monday, he said: "I can now just speak freely about what I think the dangers might be.

"And some of them are quite scary."
