Elon Musk criticizes Apple's partnership with OpenAI, citing security concerns

The already strained relationship between Elon Musk and OpenAI has taken another hit after Apple’s announcement at WWDC24. Apple announced a future collaboration with OpenAI, intending to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology into Siri. This news caused outrage among Musk, who took to the X platform with a series of posts accusing Apple of “selling user data.”

Musk expressed his skepticism, saying: “Apple isn’t innovative enough to create its own AI, but thinks it can guarantee user privacy with OpenAI? That’s ridiculous! Once your data is in OpenAI, Apple loses control. They are essentially selling you out.”

His criticism has intensified even further, threatening a potential ban: “If Apple integrates OpenAI at the operating system level,” Musk said, “Apple devices will be banned from my companies. This is a serious security breach. Visitors will have to hand over their Apple devices at the entrance and store them in Faraday cages.” (A Faraday cage is a metal case that blocks electromagnetic signals).

This public spat highlights the ongoing tension between Musk and OpenAI. With the emergence of Apple, the front line in the fight for the development of artificial intelligence and the security of user data is becoming even more complex.
