Some members of OpenAI have identified a potential breakthrough in their pursuit of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) with a project referred to as Q* (pronounced Q-Star).
The Concerns Raised
Ahead of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s four-day absence, a group of staff researchers penned a letter to the board of directors. In this letter, they highlighted a significant artificial intelligence discovery, expressing concerns about its potential impact on humanity.
The letter and the undisclosed AI algorithm played pivotal roles in the decision to oust Altman, a prominent figure in generative AI. The concerns raised included worries about advancing technology without fully understanding the consequences. Over 700 employees had threatened to resign in solidarity with Altman before his eventual return.
The letter was cited as one among various grievances leading to Altman’s dismissal. The board expressed apprehensions about the hastening of commercialization without a comprehensive understanding of the potential ramifications. Unfortunately, Reuters could not obtain a copy of the letter, and the authors did not respond to requests for comments.
The events surrounding Altman’s departure and subsequent return, coupled with the internal strife within OpenAI, underscore the delicate balance between advancing AI technologies and ensuring ethical considerations are thoroughly addressed.
