In a book written by biographer Walter Isaacson for Time magazine written profile of the serial founder Elon Musk There is the claim that Musk wants to use data from Twitter users Tesla-Full Self-Driving feature to train a powerful new AI model.
This should be the general one that many have longed for artificial intelligence will be faced by just as many sometimes give drastic warnings. This doesn’t seem completely outlandish, after all, artificial intelligence (AI) is already part of the products of Tesla, SpaceX or others in one form or another Neuralink.
Specifically, Musk is said to be planning tweets and real-world images of Teslas Full self-driving cameras to be used to create AI chatbots modeled on ChatGPT as well physical robots to develop that should be able to move natively through the real world.
In an interview with Isaacson, Musk reportedly claimed that he had spent time thinking about a not-too-distant future in which intelligent machines could make humans obsolete. He realized that he “can’t just sit around and do nothing.”
After all, general artificial intelligence, which is referred to as the singularity, “could happen faster than we expected,” said Musk. It was out of this fear that he founded xAI.
According to Musk, the new company will focus on “AI security” and has already recruited former Deepmind research engineer Igor Babushkin. As Time Magazine further writes, Musk is said to have commissioned the xAI researchers to develop an AI “in the short term” that is capable of generating computer code and operating a “politically neutral” chatbot.
“Tesla and Twitter together could provide the data sets and processing capacity for both approaches: teaching machines to navigate physical space and answer questions in natural language,” says Isaacson, who calls Musk “the most interesting person alive today.” describes.
The sheer power of the numbers does not make the idea seem completely absurd. After all, Twitter has a stock of more than a trillion tweets. Isaacson speaks of the “hive of humanity.”
In addition, Tesla’s semi-autonomous driver assistance system called Full Self-Driving takes an estimated 160 billion camera images per day. This means that an AI can certainly be trained quite extensively.
