OpenAI CEO Sam Altman says the era of giant AI models is over.
“I think we’re at the end of an era that’s going to be these giant models,” he told an audience at MIT via Zoom last week.
“We’ll make them better in other ways.”
At the same event, Altman also confirmed that his company is not developing Chat GPT-5.
OPENAI CEO Sam Altman says ELON MUSK-backed letter calling for a moratorium on AI isn’t the ‘best way to tackle it’
“An earlier version of the letter claimed that OpenAI is currently training GPT-5,” he said, citing a letter from billionaire Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. “We won’t, and won’t be for a while.”
The open letter, published by the nonprofit Future of Life Institute, called for a six-month moratorium on the development of any AI technology more powerful than Chat GPT-4. Chat GPT-4 was released in March.
Altman said he doesn’t believe the letter’s conclusions are the answer to AI’s problems.
Recent debates have forced the Biden administration and other governments around the world to recognize the need for policies to regulate the fledgling industry.
However, it’s unclear where the progress will come from.
Google launched a chatbot called Bard, and Microsoft added its own chatbot to its Bing search engine.
While Musk may have signed off on the letter, the Twitter CEO told Tucker Carlson that he will be launching his own AI chatbot: TruthGPT.
“I’m going to start something I’m calling TruthGPT, or a maximally truth-seeking artificial intelligence that’s trying to understand the nature of the universe,” he said in an interview that aired Monday. The best way, because an AI that cares about understanding the universe is unlikely to wipe out humans, because we are an interesting part of the universe.”
“Artificial intelligence is more dangerous than poorly managed aircraft design or production maintenance or poor car production because it has the potential, however small one might think it is, but it is not insignificant; it has the potential to destroy civilization” SpaceX founder says.

Musk also launched a new company called X.AI, according to a Nevada filing dated March 9.
