On November 20, Tesla CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) said that as the potential danger of developing advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology is so high, OpenAI, the most powerful artificial intelligence company in the world, should explain why it fired its CEO, Sam Sam Altman.
OpenAI's board announced the dismissal of Altman on Friday, saying only that the company "no longer has confidence in his ability to continue to lead."
"given the risks and power of advanced artificial intelligence, the public should understand why the OpenAI board thinks they have to make such a big decision," Mr Musk said in response to an X post by David David Sacks, former chief executive of Yammer, a corporate social networking platform.
Mr Musk was a former board member of OpenAI but left the company in 2018, citing a conflict of interest with Tesla. However, Mr Musk later said he had begun to worry about the impact the company might have on society. It is worth noting, however, that Mr Musk's own artificial intelligence company may benefit from OpenAI's current chaos.
Altman's dismissal exposed differences among the company's top executives over how to contain the existential threat posed by artificial intelligence. Although Altman talked about the "potentially terrible" dangers of artificial intelligence and the "urgent" need to regulate it, he did more to promote rapid innovation in artificial intelligence. As we all know, Altman actively promotes OpenAI to maintain a leading position in the artificial intelligence competition, pursuing a large amount of money and rapid development.
In September, Altman tried to secure a $1 billion investment from Softbank Corp. to develop a hardware device to run tools such as ChatGPT. Masayoshi son, chief executive of the Japanese conglomerate, has previously said he uses ChatGPT every day and believes in the power of artificial intelligence.
At the same time, other OpenAI leaders are increasingly nervous about the dangers posed by artificial intelligence and called on the company to do more to mitigate potential threats.
Ilya Sutskever, co-founder, chief scientist and board member of OpenAI, played an important role in Altman's dismissal. Considering the potential harm of artificial intelligence to society, he tends to OpenAI to act more cautiously.
It has been reported that Suzkave has set up a "super calibration" team within the company to ensure that future versions of GPT-4 (the technology behind ChatGPT) do not harm humans before Altman steps down.
Two other OpenAI board members, Helen Toner, director of Georgetown University's Center for Security and emerging Technologies, and Tasha McCauley, a technology entrepreneur, are also linked to the so-called effective altruism movement that ensures that advances in artificial intelligence are in line with the best interests of mankind.
If their concern about Altman's commitment to the effective altruism movement is why he was fired, then this is not the first time someone has left because of the dangers of artificial intelligence. In 2021, Dario Amodei (Dario Amodei) and several other OpenAI employees left the company to form Anthropic. It has become a competitor to OpenAI, with building safer artificial intelligence as its core mission.
