OpenAI’s ChatGPT is a product, not AI research – Meta chief AI scientist

Yann LeCun, Meta’s top AI scientist, said OpenAI’s ChatGPT is a product, not accurate research and development in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

He claims that OpenAI has produced no significant scientific discoveries and that ChatGPT is “not particularly innovative.”

“When we’re talking about Gpt-4, or whatever OpenAI puts out at the moment, we’re not talking about research and development, we’re talking about product development,” LeCun said during a live webcast on YouTube.

“OpenAI pivoted from an AI research lab that was relatively open, as the name indicates, to a for-profit company, and now a kind of contract research lab mostly for Microsoft that doesn’t reveal anything anymore about how they work, so this is product development; this is not R&d,” he emphasised.

In a report by ZDNet, LeCun and Andrew Ng, founder and CEO of applied AI company Landing.ai and AI educational outfit DeepLearning.ai, argued against the six-month embargo on AI testing urged by AI researchers and billionaires such as Elon Musk.

“I feel like, while AI today has some risk of harm, it is also creating real value, for education, for healthcare, is incredibly exciting, the value so many people are creating to help other people,” Ng said.“As amazing as GPT-4 is today, building something even better than GPT-4 will help all of these applications to help a lot of people,” Ng added.

LeCun expected that the free flow of research would result in programs with capabilities that were on par with or better than GPT-4.

A new complaint has been filed against OpenAI, requesting that the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) look into the matter and stop the company’s commercial use of large language models like ChatGPT.
