As executives at two high-tech companies, Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk has once again warned against the development of artificial intelligence. In a tweet Monday night, it said all organizations that develop advanced artificial intelligence should be regulated, not even teslas. Apparently, this is a response to the MIT Tech Review’s comments about OpenAI, the organisation.
The group was founded in 2015 by Musk in collaboration with Sam Altman, Ilya Sutskever, Greg Brockman, Wojciech Zaremba and John Schulman.
First, OpenAI, a non-profit organization for OnePlus, received $1 billion in funding from initial investors to open up advanced artificial intelligence technologies.
The focus is on ensuring that the concept of ‘benefit to society’ is pursued, rather than leaving the interests in the hands of a few, such as for-profit technology companies.
As early as 2015, Musk said OpenAI was originally created to replace “wait and see” or “encourage regulation.”
In 2017, Musk argued that laws should be enacted to regulate the development of artificial intelligence — setting up a watchdog group to study and understand industry trends before proposing any rules.
In the years that followed, many things, including OpenAI, changed. The organization formally formed a for-profit organization owned by the non-profit parent company in 2019, received $1 billion in investment from Microsoft, and formed a broad partnership that appeared to have deviated from the organization’s founding principles.
This week, MIT Tech Published A review of its views on the new OpenAI route, Musk himself responded.
First, when it agreed that microsoft joined last year, concerns about OpenAI’s mission were legitimate, or at least the organization could be more open.
Second, he has no control over OpenAI and offers only a fairly limited amount of insight.
Finally, he is not very confident in securing AI development with Dario Amodei, Director of Research at OpenAI.
While it’s surprising to see Musk include Tesla in the regulated advanced AI, it’s in line with his overall position on the development of artificial intelligence.
Mr Musk has repeatedly warned of the risks of ‘building more independent and advanced AI’ and even calling it a threat to the survival of human civilization.
On Monday, he also argued that advanced artificial intelligence development should be regulated by governments and international governing bodies such as the United Nations in response to a question from fans that needs to be clarified.
Looking ahead, time may not weaken Musk’s development of potential threats to artificial intelligence. It may also encourage greater efforts to allow humans to experience more fun with Neuralink’s neural connection technology.
