Elon Musk appeared at last night’s Breakthrough Prize ceremony in Los Angeles, briefly discussing artificial intelligence (AI) during his red carpet walk.

The 10th annual Breakthrough Prize ceremony, often referred to as the “Oscars of science,” took place Saturday night at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, with Musk and several other celebrities from science and Hollywood in attendance. were included.

During his appearance on the red carpet, Musk was asked by a YouTuber what he hoped would be the biggest achievement in our lifetime. Not surprisingly, Musk noted that making life multidimensional was one, while the continued development of AI was another.

While he warned again that it’s possible that AI could eventually kill us all, he also repeated recent statements that he believes we’ll have AI more than humans by the end of next year. will become smarter, and further increase the importance of AI training. As true as possible. He notes that this is important, even if that truth is unpopular, and says he’s optimistic that AI will ultimately promote humanity rather than destroy it through this approach.

He also cited the example of Galileo, saying that AI in his time also believed that the sun revolved around the earth, because that was what most (not Galileo) believed at the time. Musk noted that AI must both know the truth and be able to tell the truth, even if it’s unpopular.
