Artificial Intelligence is sparking a lot of debate around itself: the co-founder of The Sandbox, Sebastien Borget, is in favor, stating that “AI makes the metaverse safer.”
Artificial Intelligence (AI) used in the metaverse according to the co-founder of The Sandbox
In an interview, the co-founder and chief operating officer of The Sandbox, Sebastien Borget, seems to have come out in favor of the technology that is the fruit of the latest debates: artificial intelligence.
In this regard, Borget reportedly said:
“With this tool, generative AI, [creators] can show and materialize ideas in seconds. It’s fantastic. The speed at which ideas can come to life has been accelerated so much. […] AI also helped to make the metaverse safer because it can moderate text in chats to reduce toxicity, for example, in a more automated manner.”
In essence, Borget wanted to emphasize that AI offers great possibilities for content creators, as well as making the metaverse more inclusive and safer.
Lately though, not everyone is in favor of the cutting-edge technology, the one behind OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4 chatbot, indeed, some argue it is something to be feared.
The letter to block the development of artificial intelligence
Indeed, the CEO of Tesla Elon Musk, alongside Alphabet’s DeepMind researchers and other senior scientists, recently reportedly issued an appeal to “halt the development of Artificial Intelligence.”
This is a required six-month halt that will be used to devise common rules and protections from the most deleterious consequences.
According to these thousand people, it seems that in recent months, AI labs have begun an out-of-control race to develop and employ increasingly powerful digital minds that even their creators cannot reliably understand, predict or control.
In this regard, here is what the letter says:
“we call on all AI labs to immediately pause for at least 6 months the training of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4. This pause should be public and verifiable, and include all key actors. If such a pause cannot be enacted quickly, governments should step in and institute a moratorium.”
This is a real warning letter meant to highlight how AI systems at ChatGPT are becoming increasingly competitive with humans.
The Sandbox Metaverse and Artificial Intelligence with NFTs
Despite this major stance against AI, Borget continues his interview by also arguing that AI-based tools are capable of bringing security and transparency to the NFT market.
Not only that, the co-founder of The Sandbox metaverse also described a use case where AI apps enable more expression and sentiment in content creation.
According to Borget, Artificial Intelligence stands for inclusion and safety on all fronts.
Recently, during the NFT Paris conference, Borget was interviewed by The Cryptonomist about plans for the future of the metaverse, NFTs and their adoption.
Furthermore, the interview features more about all the initiatives The Sandbox is launching with Snoop Dogg, Paris Hilton and many other entertainment personalities.
