Elon Musk OpenAI fight! Apple Products Banned at Musk's Companies 2

Elon Musk says he might stop using Apple products at his businesses if Apple starts using OpenAI in its system. He’s worried about how safe people’s information will be and thinks it’s silly. Apple says it cares a lot about keeping things private when it uses AI. Musk helped start OpenAI but left in 2018 and has been critical of it. He even took them to court. Now, Musk has got $6 billion for his new AI project, xAI. He’s also in charge of Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, and the Boring Company.

Elon Musk Reacted to the Integration of OpenAI

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, says he will ban Apple devices from his companies if Apple integrates OpenAI at the OS level.
Apple announced its long-awaited partnership with OpenAI on Monday. Apple integrated AI features across its apps and operating platforms using OpenAI technology in its devices.

After this announcement, Elon Musk threatened to ban Apple devices from his companies, if the iPhone maker integrates OpenAI at the OS level. He directly replies to Tim Crook’s(CEO of Apple) post saying he will ban Apple devices from his company’s premises if Cook decides not to” stop this creepy spyware.”

Elon Musk Questions the Security of Users’ Data

However, Apple said that it had built AI with privacy “at the core” and it would use a combination of on-device processing and cloud computing to power those features. Elon Musk shared his security concerns about whether Apple and OpenAI will protect users’ information.
“This is an unacceptable security violation,” Elon Musk said in a post on X.
“Visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage,” he further added

Apple Updated Its Siri

The widespread adoption of ChatGPT has led to its ban by several organizations. Apple itself banned its employees from using ChatGPT on the company system.
Now, Apple is updating its 13-year-old virtual assistant, Siri. Siri can tap into OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbox. Apple emphasizes privacy and security matters during the announcement. It is said that Siri would ask users permission before connecting them to Open AI, also their information will not be logged.

Elon Musk Called OpenAI Integration An Absurd

Elon Musk, opposing this integration, said “It’s patently absurd that Apple isn’t smart enough to make their own AI, yet is somehow capable of ensuring that OpenAI will protect your security and privacy.”
Further in a series of his posts, he added that “Apple has no clue what’s actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI,” he tweeted. “They’re selling you down the river.”
Apple marked the integration of OpenAI as an optional feature, as the company uses its own AI.

Elon Musk: A Vocal Critic of OpenAI

Musk co-founded OpenAI in 2015 and took an exit from its board in 2018. He continuously spoke out against OpenAI. Last May, he took credit for the creation of OpenAI, saying it wouldn’t exist without him.

Musk sued OpenAI and Sam Altman, alleging they strayed the company from its founding mission to develop AI “for the benefit of humanity broadly.”
Musk filed a complaint saying, “not to personally benefit the individual defendants and the largest technology company in the world.”

OpenAI, replying to Musk’s complaint, released a series of internal e-mails where Musk himself suggested that, they should raise more than initially planned.
“We need to go with a much bigger number than $100M to avoid sounding hopeless relative to what Google or Facebook are spending,” Musk allegedly wrote. “I think we should say that we are starting with a $1B funding commitment. This is real. I will cover whatever anyone else doesn’t provide.”

Elon Musk Funded to Fuel xAI

Elon Musk raised a significant amount of $6 billion in a recent funding round. He secured this amount for his would-be OpenAI competitor, xAI.
xAI’s first product, Grok, is a conversational AI chatbox that is said to answer questions typically rejected by other AI systems.

Along with Tesla, SpaceX, and xAI, Musk is also the founder of brain interface startup Neuralinkand tunneling venture Boring Company.
