Open AI co-founder responds to Elon Musk slamming ChatGPT, here is what he said

ChatGPT has been the talk of the town ever since its launch in November 2022. The popularity of AI chatbots kept on increasing every day and today, everyone is talking about it.

Chatbots have also divided people. While some feel that ChatGPT is a worthy addition and will help ease their work, others feel that its ability to perform multiple tasks at lightning speed will put them off.

The AI chatbot, developed by OpenAI, is known to answer questions in a human-like manner. However, at times, ChatGPT went too far and people called it extra ‘woke’.

Twitter owner Elon Musk, who was one of the founders of OpenAI years ago, has also criticized ChatGPT on more than one occasion. The Tesla CEO had earlier slammed ChatGPT for being ‘too woke’ and also said that the AI awakening could be ‘fatal’. He also termed ChatGPT’s alleged bias towards conservatives as ‘worrying’.

OpenAI’s co-founder and president Greg Brockman, in an interview with The Information, has accepted Musk’s criticism and has said that it is ‘legitimate. “We made a mistake: The system we implemented did not reflect the values we intended to be in there,” Brockman told the publication. He added, “And I think we were not fast enough to address that. And so I think that’s a legitimate criticism of us.”

Musk was one of the founders of OpenAI, but left the company in 2018. While some reports say that Musk left the company because his other two firms, Tesla and SpaceX, were also working on AI technologies, other reports suggest that the Twitter owner left the company OpenAI after some disagreements.

Whatever the reason, Musk is no longer associated with the company in any way and he divested all his stake in the company in 2018.

In 2019, OpenAI declared itself a ‘for-profit’ company and partnered with the likes of Microsoft and other large corporations. Microsoft recently strengthened its partnership with OpenAI and the same was revealed in a press release. Microsoft also launched the new Bing, its AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT’s technology.

Musk criticized OpenAI last month, saying Microsoft has turned the company into a “profit making machine” and that OpenAI was never about profits.
