President Obama Elon Musk

Elon Musk said on Sunday that he spent his one and only meeting with President Obama urging regulation of artificial intelligence and cautioning against its risks.

Mckay Wrigley, a software developer, predicted on social media that AI would continue to experience “exponential growth” in the years to come. He argued that those who believed the world would have GPT-4, a potent large language model that powers the most recent iteration of ChatGPT, a mass-market AI processing system, one year ago were insane, and that AI technology would strike skeptics “like an asteroid” over the following ten years.

“I saw it happening from well before GPT-1, which is why I tried to warn the public for years,” Musk retorted in the comments. “In the one one-on-one meeting I ever had with Obama as President, I didn’t promote Tesla or SpaceX; instead, I pushed for regulation of artificial intelligence.”

Obama did in fact go to the Stanford University cybersecurity summit in 2015, and they subsequently had dinner at Spruce with Elon Musk. In addition to touring SpaceX’s facilities in Cape Canaveral, Florida, with the world’s richest man at his side, the former president.

Musk is the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter in addition to being a co-founder of OpenAI, the Microsoft-backed startup that created ChatGPT. He recently joined hundreds of other technology professionals in signing an open letter that demanded a six-month ban on the creation of AI products that are more powerful than GPT-4 while the world evaluates the potential effects of the technology.


The letter stated that “Such decisions must not be delegated to unelected tech leaders.” Powerful AI systems should only be created when we are certain that they will have beneficial outcomes and pose minimal hazards. This confidence must be properly supported and grow in proportion to the possible implications of a system.

According to a recent research by Goldman Sachs’ chief economist Jan Hatzius and three other senior analysts, generative AI systems might have “potentially large macroeconomic effects” and cause “significant disruption” in the job market. Additionally, Musk considers ChatGPT to be an illustration of “training AI to be woke” and has spoken with senior researchers about developing substitutes.

Following Microsoft’s announcement that ChatGPT would be integrated into the Bing search engine and the Edge web browser, enabling users to find information or understand websites more easily, the open letter was published. One day earlier, Google said that Bard, an experimental conversational AI tool, would soon be integrated into the company’s long-dominant search engine. Last week, Amazon announced the upcoming release of several AI products, while officials at Meta are said to spend the majority of their time building the company’s AI capabilities for uses like social media marketing.

Other technological experts argued that the worries raised in the open letter were overblown and pointed out that rival countries like China will not stop working on AI. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is thinking about taking action to regulate AI as generative language systems spur a race for technological advancement.

Musk said, “Good news,” when informed of the upcoming legislative push. “Regulation of AI will be far more crucial than it might be now,”.
