Artificial Intelligence: Tech Titans Launch Fresh Forays Into AI
While Elon Musk has unveiled xAI, Mark Zuckerberg will debut a commercial version of its artificial intelligence model.
Elon Musk recently discussed his plans for building a safer AI during a Twitter Spaces event. Instead of programming morality directly into the AI, his new startup company xAI aims to create a highly curious AI, said to be a challenger to ChatGPT.
Musk believes that if the AI strives to understand the true nature of the universe, it would be the best approach for AI safety. He also predicted that superintelligence, or AI smarter than humans, will emerge in the next five to six years, and that it would have the potential to destroy civilization.
Of xAI, Musk said: “I think it is going to be pro-humanity from the standpoint that humanity is just much more interesting than not-humanity.”
xAI, which is separate from Musk’s previous venture OpenAI, is collaborating closely with Twitter, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), and other companies. It has already begun recruiting engineers and researchers in the San Francisco Bay Area. (Reuters)
On the other hand, Meta (NASDAQ: META), formerly known as Facebook, led by Mark Zuckerberg, is preparing to release a commercial version of its artificial intelligence model to compete with Google and OpenAI.
Meta’s large language models (LLMs) will be customizable and more widely available, contrasting with OpenAI’s approach of keeping their latest model proprietary. (FT)
The competition among tech companies to establish dominance in AI is intensifying.
