The boss of Tesla and SpaceX, however, did not make an appearance in the flesh. He appeared by videoconference and answered questions from Maurice Lévy, the founder of the event, for about an hour. And the billionaire didn’t minced his words concerning, in particular, artificial intelligence. The least we can say is that Elon Musk is not the most optimistic on this subject, report The echoes.

Concerning generative AI, for example, he estimated that they do not seek “not necessarily the truth» : “It is important that AI is trained to be honest and not to be politically correct. Political correctness is often just plain wrong, and that means you’re programming the AI ​​to lie, and I think that’s going to go wrong.”, he defended. At the same time, he attacked Google’s AI, Geminiwhich had mistakenly generated images of Nazi soldiers or George Washington with black skin.
