OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman, President Greg Brockman, and Chief Scientist Ilya Sutskever have recently voiced their concerns regarding the arrival of superintelligent AI. In a blog post, they propose a solution that advocates for robust global governance. Critics suggest that Altman’s push for stringent regulation may be serving a dual purpose to stifle competitors. The possibility that such regulation might enable OpenAI to monopolize the field of superintelligent AI is disconcerting to some. Altman’s ability to straddle his roles as CEO of OpenAI and advocate for global regulation poses potential conflicts. Critics worry that heavy-handed regulation could stifle innovation and create barriers to entry. The challenge is ensuring that this protective measure doesn’t transform into a tool for monopolization.
