Musk Sounds The Alarm During Tucker Carlson Interview

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Tucker Carlson dropped a sneak peek of his interview with Elon Musk on Friday that will air in its entirety on Monday evening.

The short video clip posted to Twitter features Elon Musk warning us that Artificial Intelligence could lead to the collapse of civilization as we know it.

“AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production,” he said. “In the sense that it has the potential — however small one may regard that probability, but it is non-trivial — it has the potential of civilization destruction.”


The full interview will air on Monday at 8pm EST on Fox News:

The Guardian reports that Musk has founded X.AI, an artificial intelligence company:

Elon Musk is reportedly planning to launch an artificial intelligence company to compete with OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, as Silicon Valley battles for dominance in the rapidly developing technology.

The billionaire boss of Tesla and Twitter is in the process of bringing together a team of AI researchers and engineers and is in talks with several investors about the project, according to the Financial Times.

“A bunch of people are investing in it …  it’s real and they are excited about it,” a person with knowledge of the talks told the newspaper, which cited Nevada business records showing that on 9 March Musk incorporated a company called X.AI of which he is the company’s sole director.

Is it possible that Elon Musk will be able to prevent the ‘forces’ that are trying to use AI to do evil with his technology?

According to CNBC, Musk has been building a team of researchers and engineers and has been in conversation with multiple investors, the Financial Times reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. He has also reportedly been recruiting from other top AI firms, including Alphabet
-owned DeepMind.

“It’s real and they are excited about it,” a source familiar with the matter told the Financial Times.

Musk has secured thousands of Nvidia GPU processors, according to the report. Those chips are an integral part of building a large language model, or LLM, to compete with OpenAI’s GPT. Musk said he was acquiring the processors for his companies in a Twitter Spaces interview with the BBC this week.

“It seems like everyone and their dog is buying GPUs at this point,” Musk said. “Twitter and Tesla are certainly buying GPUs.”

Musk was once a major financial backer at OpenAI, committing $1 billion over multiple years, according to an earlier report from Semafor. But Musk backed out of his financial and operational commitments to the artificial intelligence firm at the same time OpenAI added a for-profit business segment. Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI shortly after Musk ruptured with the group and, earlier this year, committed to a new multibillion-dollar investment.

Of his push to prevent the destruction of society through nefarious use of AI, Cointelegraph reports:

While tech giants worldwide work on materializing the idea of having a generative artificial intelligence (AI) to aid humans in their daily lives, some believe the risk of the nascent technology going rogue remains imminent. Considering this possibility, Tesla and Twitter chief Elon Musk reminded people of AI’s potential to destroy civilization.

On March 15, Musk’s plan to create a new AI startup surfaced after the entrepreneur reportedly assembled a team of AI researchers and engineers. However, Musk continues to highlight the destructive potential of AI — just like any other technology — if it falls into the wrong hands or is developed with ill intentions.

According to Musk, AI can be dangerous. In a FOX interview, he said AI could be more dangerous than mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance, for example. While acknowledging the low probability, he stated:

“However small one may regard that probability, but it is non-trivial — it has the potential of civilizational destruction.”

As Crypto Twitter picked up on the discussion, Musk followed up with strong support for his statement:

“Anyone who thinks this risk is 0% is an idiot.”
