After the massive development starting to enter the AI world, especially with the latest version of GBT Chat, American billionaire Elon Musk and a group of AI experts and executives have called, in an open letter, to stop for a period of six months from developing systems more powerful than the chat bot (Chat. GPT-4) recently launched by OpenAI, citing the potential risks of such applications for society. The letter released by the Future Institute of Life, signed by more than 1,000 people, also noted that it is necessary “to develop strong artificial intelligence systems only when we are sure that their effects will be positive and that their risks will be under control.
Further, he asked, “Should we allow machines to flood our media outlets with propaganda and lies?…Should we develop non-human minds that could outnumber us and eventually be smarter, outrun and replace us?”
“Such decisions should not be delegated to unelected tech leaders,” he added.
While the Transparency Record of the European Union has revealed that the main funders of this non-profit organization (Future of Life) are the Musk Foundation, the London-based Founders Pledge Group, as well as the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
