The risks related to the rapid development of artificial intelligence have been a subject of growing concern among policymakers since the Microsoft-backed Open AI group (MSFT.O) released the ChatGPT chatbot to the public last year.
Some experts warn that terrorists could potentially use open-source models to create chemical weapons or even to create a superintelligence beyond human control.
Speaking with Sunak at a live event in London on Thursday, Musk said:
“It will get to the point where you’ve got open-source AI that will start to approach human-level intelligence, or perhaps exceed it. I don’t know quite what to do about it.”
During two days of active discussion of this issue, world leaders, business executives, and researchers, tech CEOs such as Elon Musk and OpenAI’s Sam Altman concluded that it is necessary to have a legal regulation of AI usage both at the national and global level.
