This week, Steven Duty joins us to discuss Musk’s new Generative Human Reasoning startup. We also discuss whether that ridiculous enclosure match is actually going to happen.
Elon Musk is once again in the news. (Really, is this news going away anytime soon?) Last week, Musk reported on another human consciousness adventure called XAI. The departure plan is strange because Musk actually runs Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, Exhausting Organization, and Twitter. Twitter in particular is causing them mental anguish due to increased competition from its listing business and rivals such as Metastrings. These reforms are taking place in the shadow of a dreary subplot on a terrible sitcom — a proposed mixed war technology match between Musk and his rival, Meta chief Imprint Zuckerberg.
This week, we talk with WIRED manager Steven Duty about xAI’s departure and its stated purpose of “understanding the true essence of the universe.” We also examine the places where man-made brainpower is still under development, and the ways in which XAI could make an impact in the field of deep learning. Also, obviously, we discuss matching that enclosure.
Tycoon business man Elon Musk on Wednesday launched his long-promoted artificial intelligence startup xAI, revealing a group of engineers from the same big US innovation companies he wants to rope in in his bid to create an alternative to ChatGPT.
The startup will be run by Musk, who is currently chairman of electric vehicle maker Tesla (TSLA.O), rocket launch company SpaceX and owner of Twitter, who has said on a few occasions that the development of man-made intelligence should be put on hold and that the sector needs guidance. Musk has expressed concern more than once about the very real potential of artificial intelligence to “destroy civilization.”
In a Twitter space event on Wednesday night, Musk laid out his plan to build a more secure simulated intelligence. Instead of explicitly programming a moral quality into its man-made intelligence, he said, XAI would attempt to create a “maximally inquisitive” simulated intelligence.
Musk said, “Taking into account that it endeavored to comprehend the genuine quintessence of the universe, it truly is the best thing I can imagine from a man-made consciousness security point of view.”
Musk also predicted that Genius, or computer-based intelligence that is more intelligent than humans, would emerge in five or six years. Musk helped establish OpenAI, the organization behind ChatGPT, in 2015, but resigned from the organization’s board in 2018.
In a Twitter space event on Wednesday night, Musk laid out his plan for creating more secure computer-based intelligence. Instead of explicitly programming moral quality into its simulated intelligence, XAI will focus on creating a “maximally inquisitive” man-made intelligence, he said.
“Given that it attempted to understand the true essence of the universe, it’s really the best thing I could find from a computer-based intelligence security perspective,” Musk said. “I think this would support anthropomorphism’s view that human beings are far more attractive than non-human beings.”
Musk enrolled a firm called X.AI Corp to incorporate in Nevada in the spring, according to a state record. The firm lists Musk as sole principal and Jared Birchall as secretary, who oversees Musk’s family office.
Musk said in April that he would send TruthGPT, or the greatest truth-chasing man-made intelligence that attempts to explore the idea of the universe, to match Google’s Minstrel and Microsoft’s (MSFTO.TO) Bing artificial intelligence.
Generative simulated intelligence grabbed headlines with the departure of OpenAI’s famous chatbot ChatGPT, which preceded the departure of Minstrel and Bing man-made intelligence in November last year.
Dan Hendricks, who will lead the XAI group, is currently supervisor of the Artificial Intelligence Wellbeing Center and his work revolves around the dangers of artificial intelligence.
As per the site, Musk’s new organization is discrete from X Corp, yet will work intimately with Twitter, Tesla and different organizations.
XAI said it is recruiting architects and analysts with experience in the San Francisco Sound region. Tesla chief Elon Musk on Friday announced plans for another human-made brainpower organization called xAI. The computer-based intelligence startup is Musk’s sixth organization, joining Tesla, SpaceX, Twitter, Neuralink and The Exciting Organization.
During an appearance on Twitter Space on Friday, Musk said his new startup XAI would work closely with Tesla on the “silicon front” and the “computer-based intelligence programming front,” CNBC reported. The Tesla chairman also said the artificial brainpower startup will work with Twitter to help educate “highly curious” people on the artificial intelligence infrastructure it wants to build for the platform soon.
Musk said that the purpose of xAI would be to “understand the universe”, adding that the organization wants to build human-like intelligence technology that also explores “the real world and beyond the web”. He also claimed that the use of Twitter data by XAI would not be much different from those for which many people are now connecting to the platform, adding that it would be used basically for “text preparation” and “image and video preparation will be taken for will be done for
According to Musk, “every computer-based intelligence organization in the world” was searching for information on Twitter at the time, “in all cases the wrong way.” He cited a massive increase in Twitter traffic in the recent half-month as justification for Twitter creating new rate limits on the platform. In addition, Twitter recently sued four undisclosed associations/individuals in Texas for stealing information.
Despite the announcement, Musk did not share any financial or calculative details about his plans to work together with his various organizations or how these organizations would operate. As noted by CNBC, Musk’s organizations have long treated each other in different ways, and a large number of financial details are openly disclosed through filings with the Security and Trade Commission .
Nonetheless, Musk also says that the simulated intelligence framework will require extended human-generated information, including DeepMind’s computer-based intelligence for associating letters with Alpha Zero, a program that plays chess, shogi and Works on a lot dominates and plays against himself.
Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta moreover use driving data to set up its man-made insight on the most capable technique to drive. Musk moreover inspected the supercomputer project Dojo, which Tesla is making to use for man-made consciousness artificial intelligence and PC vision planning.
