Elon Musk calls for ‘rule’ by artificial intelligence

Elon Musk calls for ‘rule’ by artificial intelligence

In the United States, regulations for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) have begun to be developed with the participation of heads of giant leading technology companies. “Today we embark on an enormous, complex, and vital task: laying the foundation for bipartisan AI policy,” Democratic Leader and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said at an AI forum at the Capitol on Wednesday.

Musk for the organizer

“It is important for us to have an arbitrator,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on the sidelines of the hearings. A regulatory body is needed to “ensure companies operate safely and in the public interest.”

Forgeries that are difficult to recognize

In addition to Musk, Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg and Google chief Sundar Pichai also participated in the deliberations in Washington. These tests are intended to help members of Congress find an answer to the question of how to control the threats posed by artificial intelligence. Since OpenAI’s ChatGPT AI software became available to the public, there has been a real buzz around the new technology. However, artificial intelligence already poses risks such as hard-to-identify forgeries (deepfakes) in the form of photos and videos, manipulation in social networks and election campaigns.

Republicans are skeptical: ‘The monopolists’

Cory Booker, a New Jersey state senator, said all participants agreed that the government must regulate the use of artificial intelligence and develop appropriate laws. The heads of Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, Microsoft Satya Nadella, and IBM Arvind Krishna, as well as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and AFL-CIO union president Liz Schuler, also participated in the meeting.

Opposition Republican Senator Josh Hawley was critical: “I don’t know why we have to invite the largest monopolists in the world to advise Congress on how to make more money.” He accused the Democratic majority in Congress of failing to pass meaningful technological legislation.

Establishing protection barriers for artificial intelligence applications

Wednesday’s forum is part of several events designed to lay the foundations for guidelines for AI applications. Last March, Musk and a group of artificial intelligence experts and executives called for a six-month pause in the development of artificial intelligence systems. They justified the suspension due to the potential risks to society.

Governments around the world are trying to regulate the use of generative AI, which can create text and images whose artificial origin is almost undetectable.
