Doge Fan Elon Musk & Others Sign Letter To Halt ChatGPT Upgrades; Here’s Why

Elon Musk ChatGPT

A group of industry stalwarts, researchers and experts in the AI field, which includes the likes of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and noted computer science professor Stuart Russel are urging developers to press the pause button on the process of training powerful AI models.

Six Months Break For AI Models

A petition with more than 1,100 signatures from leading individuals asked for a six-month hiatus from training AI models more powerful than the latest iteration of OpenAI’s GPT-4. This in turn will allow for the development of shared safety protocols to circumvent the risks associated with AI.

The appeal comes after a slew of artificial intelligence (AI) projects released over the past few months convincingly executed human functions such as writing emails, solving complex calculations and even creating art. It also includes a list of  ChatGPT alternatives that have flooded the market to compete with the reigning king of AI chatbots. Last month, OpenAI, the company behind the ChatGPT, unveiled GPT-4, a significant improvement to its AI-powered chatbot that is able to perform things similar to a human, from cracking jokes to passing the bar examination with flying colors.

Elon Musk’s History With ChatGPT

In 2018, Doge proponent Elon Musk resigned from the board of directors of OpenAI. He has since been critical of the group, stating that it has become a “closed source, maximum-profit company effectively controlled by Microsoft,” and that it has deviated far from its original goal. Musk has also contemplated the formation of a competing research lab, according to reports.

Moreover, the authors of the letter have argued that “governments” should take action to force the issue if the private corporation — referring to OpenAI — does not stop training its AI beyond the existing GPT4 implementation within a reasonable amount of time.
