Musk: 'AI stresses me out'

Elon Musk has expressed his concerns about artificial intelligence and called for government regulation during a presentation to Tesla investors. Although Tesla is using artificial intelligence technology to train vehicles to drive themselves, Musk took a less optimistic line when asked if AI could help Tesla build cars. He said, 

'I don't see AI helping us make cars any time soon. At that point ... there's no point in any of us working.

Musk also confirmed via Twitter reports that he is recruiting a team of AI technologists to build a competitor to OpenAI's text-based ChatGPT, a chatbot that can draft prose, poetry, or computer code on command.

During the presentation, Musk expressed his fear about the potential dangers of AI technology and stressed the need for regulatory authority to oversee its development. He believes that AI is quite dangerous technology and fears that he may have done some things to accelerate it. Despite this, Musk believes that Tesla's effort to enable its cars to drive themselves safely is "obviously useful" AI, and that Tesla is doing good things in the field of AI.

Tesla's ambitious artificial intelligence efforts had a featured role in Musk's "Master Plan 3," which is the third part of a series of papers on how to expand Tesla and convert the world to clean energy. The presentation included a video of an Optimus humanoid robot, being developed by Tesla, manipulating parts of other Optimus robots as if it intended to assemble replicas of itself. Executives also gave detailed presentations about how Tesla is using artificial intelligence technology to train vehicles to drive themselves.

Musk's concerns about the potential dangers of AI are not new. He has clashed with securities regulators and highway safety authorities in the past but has now turned his attention to the need for regulatory oversight of AI development. Despite the challenges, Musk remains optimistic about Tesla's potential in the field of AI, although he admits that it stresses him out.
