Elon Musk has ruled out the possibility of a winter for artificial intelligence, and hinted that the current boom is just beginning.
“There will not be a winter for AI, quite the opposite,” the business mogul tweeted on Sunday.
Musk’s tweet was in response to comments from Adam D’Angelo, the CEO of Quora, who said he expects to see “continual progress” from where AI currently stands all the way to artificial general intelligence (AGI) – without a period of time that feels like a “winter,” or downturn.
“There are just too many obvious things left to be done. And the underlying exponential growth in compute has a very long way to go,” D’Angelo, who recently announced the launch of Quora’s AI-powered chatbot called Poe, said on Twitter.
“For this purpose, I define AGI as the ability to do anything a human can do while working at a computer with internet access (e.g. excluding robotics). I have less confidence in physical machines,” D’Angelo added.
AI has taken the world by storm this year, thanks to the release of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. The excitement surrounding the technology has sparked an AI boom, triggering a tech race among industry giants that has boosted major rallies in the related stocks.
Meanwhile, Musk reportedly has his own AI plans and created a new company recently called X.AI that’s dedicated to artificial intelligence, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Insider also reported Musk bought thousands of graphic processing units for an AI product, and the Financial Times said he plans to compete with OpenAI.
“The advent of artificial general intelligence is called a singularity because it is so hard to predict what will happen after that. It’s very much a double-edged sword,” the Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX boss had said during his automaker’s annual shareholder meeting last week.
