Elon Musk has some harsh words for Facebook officials — not for the first time since the Tesla CEO has always expressed his disdain for the social media platform.
The feelings are definitely mutual. After CNBC published an article on May 13th, discussing anonymous insights into Musk’s questionable behavior, Facebook AI lead Jerome Pesenti tweeted his own opinion on Musk’s intelligence.
“I believe a lot of people in the AI community would be ok saying it publicly. @elonmusk has no idea what he is talking about when he talks about AI. There is no such thing as AGI and we are nowhere near matching human intelligence. #noAGI,” reads the tweet.
Pesenti, who later added that his tweets were not representing Facebook or the company’s official position, was referring to the so-called “artificial general intelligence” (AGI) technology. This term was coined by Musk several years ago to describe artificial intelligence that was supposed to match the human mind. Back in 2017, while speaking to the National Governors Association, he said: “I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned by it. AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization.”
As of Pesenti’s tweet, Musk reacted several hours later with a counterargument that simply read “Facebook sucks.”
