Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, recently spoke out in favor of open-source AI models in a debate on AI’s future. At the same time, this change is a reaction to rising worries about the AI industry’s concentration of power. Furthermore, the co-founder has highlighted the dangers of highly intelligent AI in his remarks.

The recent developments at OpenAI prompted Vitalik Buterin to make these remarks. In a recent X post, an AI enthusiast discussed OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s reinstatement to the board after his dismissal last year.

Concerns Over Power Concentration

At the same time, the post gave the impression that Sam Altman would not have the same level of support from the public today. While Sam Altman and OpenAI have made great strides in artificial intelligence, no one should have this much influence, according to Ryan Selkis, founder of Messari.

Also, Selkis cautioned that rules that hinder open-source development might be harmful and stressed the need for open-source competitiveness.

At the same time, Vitalik Buterin offered his opinions on the matter, highlighting the dangers of super intelligent AI and the need of not hastening its development. Furthermore, he stressed the need for an active community to develop open-source AI models compatible with consumer gear.

Buterin contended that these models mitigate the danger of corporate or military domination by acting as a vital check on the monopolization of AI. The need for balanced regulation in the AI field was also addressed by Vitalik Buterin in his recent statement. He proposed splitting AI models into “small” and “large” categories, with distinct regulatory needs for each.
