Elon Musk Says He's A 'Huge Idiot' For Letting Go Of ChatGPT Creator OpenAI

At Apple's WWDC 2024 event, the company revealed numerous enhancements for its devices, aligning with earlier speculations. Notably, they emphasized the integration of artificial intelligence into the software upgrade of iOS 18. Apple also confirmed a partnership with OpenAI to incorporate ChatGPT deeply into their devices as a chatbot.?

However, this decision has irked Elon Musk big time.

He took to X to voice his disappointment with OpenAI-Apple collaboration. He went on to say that if OpenAI comes to iOs, he will ban Apple devices in his companies.

Replying to Tim Cook, Apple CEO, Musk stated, “Don’t want it (Apple Intelligence). Either stop this creepy spyware or all Apple devices will be banned from the premises of my companies.”

Furthermore, Elon Musk indicated that he would ensure no Apple devices are present in his office building. He said, “And visitors will have to check their Apple devices at the door, where they will be stored in a Faraday cage.”

Following the launch, Musk flooded his X profile with memes and other content insinuating that OpenAI's chatbot is a form of spyware. In a post, he explained, “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 & privacy! Apple has no clue what’s actually going on once they hand your data over to OpenAI. They’re selling you down the river.”

What will happen once Apple integrates ChatGPT into its devices?

According to Musk, OpenAI utilizes private data for training their chatbots under the guise of personalization. Therefore, as Apple integrates ChatGPT into its devices, Musk believes it will compromise user privacy. This isn't the first instance of OpenAI facing privacy concerns.

Apple may have anticipated criticism and introduced an 'opt-in' option. However, Musk still found fault with this approach. In response to a user, he stated, "Apple using the words 'protect your privacy' while handing your data over to a third-party AI that they don't understand and can't themselves create is not protecting privacy at all!"
