Elon Musk critical of OpenAI’s approach to AI development

Elon Musk has been a vocal critic of the potential dangers posed by Artificial Intelligence (AI) for several years. In a recent interview with FOX News, he once again reiterated his concerns and criticized the approach taken by OpenAI, a non-profit AI research firm he co-founded in 2015.

However, what caught everyone’s attention was a tweet by a user who asked Musk why he doesn’t sue OpenAI for defrauding him. In response, Musk simply replied, “wait for it.” This has led to speculation that the tech billionaire might be planning to take legal action against OpenAI.

It’s worth noting that Musk left the board of OpenAI three years after co-founding it, citing concerns over potential conflicts of interest. He has also been critical of the company’s decision to shift its focus from AI research to creating commercial products. Musk has argued that this approach puts profits before safety, and could lead to AI being developed without proper safeguards.

OpenAI was initially launched as a rival to Google, with the goal of developing AI in a way that benefits humanity as a whole. However, the company has since shifted its focus to commercialization and has been criticized for prioritizing profits over its original mission.

In the same interview, Musk also revealed that he is working on a new AI language model called TruthGPT. This model will be a rival to ChatGPT, which is based on the GPT-3.5 architecture and was also developed by OpenAI.

It remains to be seen whether Elon Musk will actually sue OpenAI, and if so, what the grounds for the lawsuit would be. However, his comments serve as a reminder that the development of AI raises important ethical questions that need to be addressed, and that companies must prioritize safety and ethical considerations over profits.
