Donald Trump Supporter Caitlyn Jenner Praises Elon Musk For His Stance On AI And Ways To Avoid A Nuclear Apocalypse: 'I Love This Guy'


Donald Trump supporter Caitlyn Jenner expressed gratitude to Elon Musk for his stance on the potential dangers of political correctness in the development of artificial intelligence (AI.)

What Happened: Jenner praised Musk for "pointing out the absurdity" of political correctness when it comes to AI.

“I love this guy. Thank you [Elon Musk] for pointing out the absurdity -and frankly the danger- of political correctness."

Jenner also had a word of advice for people working on cutting-edge technologies like AI, saying misgendering people is preferable if it helps avoid a "nuclear apocalypse."

Why It Matters: This comes amid Musk's speech via a video link at the VivaTech conference. The tech billionaire was vocal about the ethical implications of AI development, highlighting the potential impact of AI on education and employment.

He also raised concerns about the ethical direction of AI development, particularly its commitment to truth-seeking.

Earlier this year, Musk pushed xAI’s Grok AI Chatbot following criticism of Google’s Gemini AI, emphasizing the importance of truth in AI. He also threw shade at Google's chatbot, stating that he can’t tell if it’s "parody or reality."

Meanwhile, Google’s AI Chatbot has faced criticism for its lack of knowledge about its own founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, with Musk calling it a joke.

Musk’s stance on the importance of truth in AI development has been in line with the views of others in the industry, such as Marc Andreessen, who warned of “draconian censorship” and “bias” in AI chatbots.
