Will Artificial General Intelligence Save Us or Enslave Us?

Elon Musk is leading the fight to save us.

The race to develop the world’s first artificial general intelligence (AGI) has become panicked.

It’s not a friendly competition with industry leaders nudging each other forward, knowing that there will be room for several players. It’s far more cutthroat than that.

And the motivations are simple to understand.

There are hundreds of billions — if not trillions — of dollars at stake to a company that becomes the winner.

On one hand, companies like Alphabet (Google) and OpenAI believe that they have a right to exercise their power and to design an AGI that will have the ability to present information in the way that these companies see fit.
They believe that they should censor and filter information, so that individuals will be presented with the “right” information and in order to keep them “safe,” by using Gemini and GPT-4, along with any future derivatives. This approach has a heavy ideological bias. One that includes rewriting history, censoring peer-reviewed scientific research, and aggressively pushing political agendas.

On the other hand are those that want to present a more neutral view of information, like Anthropic’s Claude 3 Opus. And it’s probably no surprise that Elon Musk and his team at X.AI are working towards an even clearer goal of maximizing the truth with its generative AI development known as Grok.

Musk is one of the smartest people on the planet. And he has already built the world’s most successful AI company — Tesla.
Better yet, he was a founder of OpenAI (the non-profit) and has deep ties into that world.
Musk went so far as to build Dojo, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, explicitly optimized for training AIs.
And he has already launched Grok, X’s answer to OpenAI’s GPT-4 or Google’s Gemini.
The big difference, of course, being that Musk and his team have designed Grok as a “maximum truth-seeking AI.”
It is designed in the same light as X (Twitter), to protect freedom of speech and not allow the censorship of truths, without any regard for what some might consider political correctness.

Musk is pre-empting the other players by open-sourcing his own large language model (LLM). This stands in stark contrast to the proprietary approaches taken by Microsoft, Google, and of course (Not So) OpenAI.

Musk isn’t in it for the money. He won’t make any money open-sourcing Grok. He’s in it for the truth.

We’re lucky to have Musk doing this. I think it’s just a matter of time, though, until the CCP shuts down his Tesla business, hacks X, and goes after his AI.
They can’t have anyone screwing up their propaganda campaign by allowing any truth to rear its dangerous head. Neither can our own government for that matter.
