Facebook vice president of artificial intelligence, Jerome Pesenti, criticized businessman Elon Musk, saying that he “has no idea about AI.” Musk, in turn, did not engage in controversy, simply stating that he considered Facebook “sucks”. What is the reason for the disagreement between the head of Tesla and Zuckerberg’s social network
Facebook Vice President and Head of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Jerome Pesenti criticized billionaire Elon Musk on his Twitter account.
Musk has repeatedly spoken out on the topic of artificial intelligence, pointing out the need to regulate this area due to its increased danger. He warned that AI would soon become as intelligent as humans, putting the existence of the entire race at risk.
However, according to CNBC, many of Musk’s technology colleagues who wish to remain anonymous not only do not share his views but also consider them “strange” and even “stupid.”
Jerome Pesenti stood on their side, sharing a link to the publication in his account.
“I’m sure that many representatives of the AI community would not be afraid to say such a thing in public. Elon Musk has no idea about AI. There is no such thing as AGI [artificial intelligence with the ability to think], and nothing can compare with the human mind, ”said the vice president of Facebook.
Musk did not consider it necessary to enter into a dispute and decided once again to “ride” on the social network of Mark Zuckerberg.
“Facebook sucks,” the billionaire said, not wanting to continue the discussion.
It is known that in February of this year, Musk was already openly attacking Facebook – he urged his subscribers to remove the Facebook application from their devices. “Remove Facebook, that sucks,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
So he reacted to the tweet of another famous critic of Facebook – actor Sasha Baron Cohen, who said that Zuckerberg’s social network needed to be regulated at the state level.
“We do not allow one person to dispose of water for 2.5 billion people. We do not allow one person to dispose of electricity for 2.5 billion people. Why do we allow one person to control the information that 2.5 billion people see? Facebook must be regulated by the authorities, not controlled by the emperor! ” – Baron Cohen wrote in his account.
Earlier, Elon Musk entered into a polemic with the head of Facebook – the topic of discussion then also dealt with artificial intelligence. In 2017, Mark Zuckerberg once stated that Mask’s critical approach to artificial intelligence technology is “irresponsible,” since one cannot always think about poor AI predictions. According to Zuckerberg, if you control the situation, nothing bad will happen.
“I just do not understand those who sound the alarm, talking about apocalyptic scenarios for the development of AI. This is bad, and to some extent, I consider it irresponsible, ”said Zuckerberg.
In turn, the head of Tesla and SpaceX, an unbearable critic, wrote on Twitter that Mark Zuckerberg’s vision is “very limited.”
