Elon Musk: ChatGPT ‘is a major risk to humanity’

Elon Musk was encouraged to talk about ChatGPT in the middle of the World Government Summit that he attended virtually in Dubai and pointed out that “it is one of the greatest risks for humanity”.

The billionaire lauded the capabilities and promise offered by this artificial intelligence, but also considers that it needs “regulation” for its use.

He is against

To Elon Musk, the artificial intelligence is even a risk “greater than cars or airplanes.”

For him, it is necessary that the regulation arrives at this time and not to wait for its positioning in society to just start observing it.

Curiously, Elon Musk co-founded OpenAI, the parent company of ChatGPT which he is not currently a part of. For him, it was necessary to create the startup because “Google was not paying enough attention to the security of artificial intelligences”.

In itself, the company itself has also changed its policies due to the fact that, after being created as a non-profit and open source organization, it currently maintains paid services and is closed source.

A race for the lead

What ChatGPT is the leader of the moment has made other companies start to walk with greater speed in this area.

Microsoft secured with a new millionaire investment in OpenAI, while Google has decided to launch Bard and try the same impact on the Internet.

On the other hand, Amazon has also started working on its own AI and Facebook has announced that, in addition to the metaverse, its ongoing artificial intelligences will also have the necessary emphasis to excel.

But not everyone is catastrophic like Musk: Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, likened the invention and success of ChatGPT as a technological milestone similar to the creation of the PC or the Internet.
