Elon Musk Warns of AI Censorship and "Wokeness"

Apr 18 Tech Standard

Elon Musk, tech entrepreneur and owner of X platform, has raised concerns about the direction of artificial intelligence (AI) development. He specifically criticizes the potential for AI to be censored and infused with "wokeness."

Musk's comments came in response to a video shared by investor Marc Andreessen. The video features Katherine Maher, CEO of NPR, discussing the First Amendment's protection of free speech. Andreessen interprets Maher's words as advocating for online censorship, a practice he believes is extending to AI as well.

Musk agrees with Andreessen, arguing that censoring AI training data poses a significant threat to human civilization. He further criticizes OpenAI, a research company known for its ChatGPT language model, for potentially harming humanity through censorship and "wokeness" embedded in its AI.

The cryptocurrency community, known for its championing of decentralization and free speech, reacted positively to Musk's stance. They praised Grok, an AI project by Musk's company, for its commitment to factual accuracy and its avoidance of censorship and "wokeness."
