  • Mark Zuckerberg talks about his biggest turn-off in the AI ​​industry at the moment.
  • Meta's CEO criticizes people who chase “a real AI” like God
  • Zuckerberg doesn't think there will be a perfect AI, as you don't just use one app.

While Mark Zuckerberg has launched meta-head-first into the AI ​​field, he's not a fan of some who think he's creating some kind of singular AI “god.”

The MetaCEO recently sat down for an interview with YouTuber Ken Sutter, also known as Callaway, to discuss his company's AI strategy — and it doesn't just involve a model.

“The future is not going to be an AI,” Zuckerberg said. “It's going to be a lot of AIs with a lot of different people being able to make different things.”

While other tech companies are identifying one main AI model to focus on, such as ChatGPT for OpenAI or Gemini for Google, Zuckerberg said Meta is looking at integrating several AIs.

“Our overall view is that this is not the kind of thing where there should be only one,” he said. “People want to interact with many different people and businesses, and there needs to be many different AIs that are designed to reflect people's different interests.”

Zuckerberg once again took the opportunity to endorse open-source AI models, saying the technology should not be “hoarded” by a company that wants to control its use or develop a centralized product.

Achieving a single, universal AI is difficult for him, he said.

“I find it a huge turn-off when people in the tech industry talk about building this one true AI,” Zuckerberg said. “It's almost like they think they're creating God or something.”

Zuckerberg seems to be referring to something about reaching singularity, or artificial general intelligence — the idea that AI will eventually surpass humanity's own intelligence.

For some, the pursuit of AI can turn into a kind of religion. Former Google engineer Anthony Lewandowski, for example, started the “Future Way” church for those seeking a “spiritual connection” with AI.

But Zuckerberg's comments seem to echo AI activists who liken AGI to a god.

“We're creating God,” an unnamed AI activist told Vanity Fair in September. “We are building conscious machines.”

Others, like former OpenAI co-founder Ilya Sotskiver, aren't talking about “God” but rather a single “superintelligence.”

Arthur Mensch, CEO of AI company Mistral, expressed concern over Silicon Valley's almost devotional interest in AGI last year, saying, “The whole AGI rhetoric is about God's creation. […] I am a staunch atheist. That's why I don't believe in AGI.”

Anthropic cofounder Jack Clark has also suggested that “the overwhelming enthusiasm for AGI misplaces religious sentiments on the part of people raised in a secular culture.”

While Meta is also very much in the AI ​​race and is looking to build increasingly powerful AI systems, Zuckerberg said Meta hopes to create a variety of tools so users can build their own AI systems.

“Some people are saying there will be a real big AI that can do everything,” Zuckerberg said. “I just don't think that's how things work.”
