Elon Musk and scientists ask for pause to AI ChatGPT. Are tech companies moving too fast in rolling out powerful artificial intelligence technology that could one day outsmart humans? Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak who are asking for a 6-month pause to consider the risks.

Top companies in AI are in an out-of-control  to develop and produce a more powerful digital minds that no one  not even their creators  can understand, predict, or reliably control. If such a pause cannot be quickly put in place, governments should step in and institute a moratorium. This could have a potentially apocalyptic scenarios. The question is, “Should we develop nonhuman minds that might eventually outnumber, outsmart, obsolete and replace us?”  “Should we risk loss of control of our civilization? Such decisions must not be delegated to unelected tech leaders.” these are just some of the questions being asked by tech companies and many of us all around the world.

So with saying this , We should be calling on all AI labs to immediately pause for at least 6 months the training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4, This pause should be public and verifiable, and include all key actors. If such a pause cannot be put in place quickly, governments should step in and institute a moratorium.

The main concerns about advanced AI have been fodder for science fiction authors for decades, brought to the mainstream in films like the Armageddon-heavy “Terminator” franchise or even the subtler “Her.” Now, with modern AI development having accelerated at a rate that has shocked even those close to it (OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has repeatedly called for regulation of the industry, although he was not among the initial round of signatories on the letter), more technologists are beginning to warn that the time to act is now.

Artificial intelligence tools that are available to the public are skyrocketing in popularity and capability. AI ChatGPT, a stunningly adept chatbot that uses language fluently but struggles with accuracy, became by some metrics the fastest-growing consumer application in history in January. Its parent company, OpenAI, released a new version of its AI software two months later. And tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Snapchat have rushed to incorporate such technology into their platform.

The petition was organized by the nonprofit Future of Life Institute, which says confirmed signatories include the Turing Award-winning AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio and other leading AI researchers such as Stuart Russell and Gary Marcus. Others who joined include Wozniak, former U.S. presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Rachel Bronson, president of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a science-oriented advocacy group known for its warnings against humanity-ending nuclear war.

Musk, who runs Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX and was an OpenAI co-founder and early investor, has long expressed concerns about AI’s existential risks. A more surprising inclusion is Emad Mostaque, CEO of Stability AI, maker of the AI image generator Stable Diffusion that partners with Amazon and competes with OpenAI’s similar generator known as DALL-E.

OpenAI, Microsoft and Google didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

“A pause is a good idea, but the letter is vague and doesn’t take the regulatory problems seriously,”

says James Grimmelmann, a Cornell University professor of digital and information law.

“It is also deeply hypocritical for Elon Musk to sign on given how hard Tesla has fought against accountability for the defective AI in its self-driving cars.”
