Tesla CEO Elon Musk IC data map
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, wants a “referee” to check AI developers.
The world’s first AI Security Summit opened in the UK on November 1. Musk spoke at the summit and said their goal is to create a framework for an independent referee to observe what leading AI companies are doing. This way, they can sound the alarm if they have concerns.
Musk said the government should understand AI before making rules. He thinks people in AI are worried about premature regulation. Musk doesn’t think it’s likely to happen. He said we need insight before regulating and isn’t sure what the fair rules are.
Elon Musk said that artificial intelligence is like a sword with two sides. He thinks that this technology can help humans 80% of the time and harm them 20% of the time. Musk believes that AI is a big danger for people, as it’s smarter than us. We’re not sure whether we can control it, but he hopes we can make it helpful for humans.
The UK, together with 28 countries and the EU, announced a plan before the summit. The plan has two goals: to recognize AI risks that might affect everyone and learn more about them. They also want to make policies that can help avoid these risks. This announcement is significant as it shows how nations work together on AI.
The AI models can cause serious harm, whether intentional or not. Criminals may exploit them, and humans could lose control of them. This is the most important ability of these AI models.
Foreign media reports that the international community has warned about threats AI could pose to humans. This is the first time a statement has been issued regarding the risks of AI. The warning focuses on large models of AI.
