Why Elon Musk Said ChatGPT and Google Gemini “Could End” Civilization?

Truth Twisting AI: A Recipe for Trouble?

The whole thing started with a chat on X about whether truth is always the same or can change.

Back and Forth with AI

This isn’t Musk’s first time talking about AI dangers. He’s been a big player for years, even helping to start OpenAI in 2015.

He even recently sued them, saying they strayed from their original plans to develop AI safely.

But no matter what his reasons are, his comments remind us of how tricky it is to develop super-smart AI. If we want AI to be helpful and safe in the future, we need to be careful and think things through.
