This Week in AI: A Battle for Humanity or Profits?


  • Elon Musk is taking legal action against OpenAI for straying from its original mission.
  • AI is becoming increasingly important in cybersecurity to identify and manage cyber threats.

This Week in AI: A Battle for Humanity or Profits?

There’s a legal battle brewing in the artificial intelligence world, as Elon Musk accuses Microsoft-backed OpenAI of deviating from its mission to benefit humanity. Musk claims that OpenAI has become a closed-source entity operating as a subsidiary of Microsoft, rather than focusing on advancing AI for the collective good. This underscores the ongoing debate about the ethical implications of AI and who stands to profit from its development.

In the realm of cybersecurity, AI is seen as a double-edged sword. While it can greatly enhance online security by automating threat analysis and response, there are concerns about the potential risks associated with AI-driven cybersecurity tools. Lenovo’s CTO highlights the importance of AI in combating cyber threats and the significant financial losses caused by cybercrime.

AI is also making its mark in the world of literature, with startups like Inkitt using AI to craft and market books. While AI offers new tools and opportunities for writers, there are concerns about the impact on editorial roles and the potential for AI to replace human writers for cost efficiency.

In the robotics realm, AI is driving advancements in humanoid robots with improved abilities to interact with humans. Figure AI’s recent funding round signals a growing interest in AI-powered robotics, with hopes that these robots can take on risky or repetitive tasks, freeing up humans for more creative work.
