According to a report, Elon Musk claimed he warned President Obama about the risks of AI and urged Obama to regulate the technology during their one-and-only meeting.
In a social media post, Mckay Wrigley, a software engineer, predicted that AI via ChatGPT would continue to grow in the years ahead.
Musk said in the comments that he attempted to warn everyone for years since he saw it coming long before GPT-1. Musk said he didn’t utilize his only private meeting with President Obama to pitch SpaceX or Tesla but to lobby for stricter regulation of artificial intelligence.
Musk is the CEO of Twitter, SpaceX, and Tesla and a founding member of OpenAI, which created ChatGPT. Recently, he joined hundreds of other industry experts in signing an open letter asking for a six-month freeze on building artificial intelligence products stronger than GPT-4 while the world discusses the potential repercussions of the technology.
Reports reveal the chief economist at Goldman Sachs, Jan Hatzius, and a trio of senior analysts recently released a study warning of the potential for generative AI systems to have significant macroeconomic repercussions and significantly alter labor markets. Musk has also reportedly called top academics to ask them to develop alternatives to ChatGPT, which he sees as an example of training AI to be “woke.”
As the generative language systems spur a development race in the technology industry, Senate Majority Leader Democrat Chuck Schumer is mulling moves to regulate AI.
When news about the impending legislative attempt was published, Musk replied positively. He said the need for rules governing AI will be far greater than it seems now.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT has been widely used since its debut last November, with examples of its application, including creating a children’s book.
Amazon workers who tried out ChatGPT praised its ability to handle inquiries about customer service, the creation of training materials, and business strategy.
However, ChatGPT users have discovered that the chatbot can misinform, provide wrong solutions to coding challenges, and make mathematical mistakes.
According to a recent report by Goldman Sachs, the use of generative AI tools has the potential to significantly disrupt the global labor market, affecting 300 million full-time employees.
