Elon Musk demands regulation from all organizations developing artificial intelligence without the exemption of his companies.
In line with this call, Tesla and SpaceX head also stated in a tweet earlier this week that “All orgs developing advanced AI should be regulated, including Tesla”.
In light of this new development, TechCrunch revealed that Musk was only “responding to a new MIT Technology Review profile of OpenAI, an organization founded in 2015 by Musk, along with other founding fathers … according to Musk at the time of the founding in 2015, the underlying reason for creating OpenAI was so that there is an alternative to ‘sitting on the sidelines or ‘encouraging regulatory oversights’”.
Since 2015, Musk has openly given many critiques to OpenAI while distancing himself from it, this is obvious in his tweet conversations online. He also raised an alarm about AI and robots in a statement to the National Governors Association in 2017: “The thing that is the most dangerous and it is the hardest to get your arms around because it is not a physical thing is a deep intelligence in the (AI) network”.
Elon musk continued passionately on the implication(s) of AI and robots: they could start a war through fake news, spoof email accounts, do fake press releases by manipulating information”. Obviously, Musk is quite concerned about this issue considering his tweet in the early hours of the morning on Friday, tweeting, “Has science gone too far?”
